Water, constantly changing.
It can be quiet or overwhelmingly loud.
It can be soft or hard, warm or cold.
It can save a person’s life or it can take a person’s life.
It reflects the rocks and trees and incorporates their beauty to enhance its own.
It is precious to all life…we must guard it, appreciate it and conserve it….allow it to flow for many generations to come.

While on our recent trip to the wilderness of Northern Ontario I found myself intrigued by the moss. I live in Texas so our climate is extremely dry…not a good environment for the production of moss!
Here are a few pictures I took of the moss I found during my wilderness hikes. They seem appropriate for this week’s challenge…texture.
I like the multiple textures in this final picture. A peek into the pristine water – to find pebbles, moss, sand, sticks….each with its own texture and its own purpose…all sharing space.

You know that noise you hear when the power goes out?
If we are home alone and the house is quiet we assume what we are hearing is silence. When in fact what we are hearing is the lack of voices, televisions, radios, etc. We are not hearing silence. Silence is that noise that happens when the power goes off and the white noise is absent.
I experienced silence this past week in a totally natural way. We vacationed in Northern Ontario. Also known as the North woods or the bush.
One day I hiked up Rock Candy Mountain. When I reach the top I was surrounded by nature and silence. Standing on this massive rock I could see for miles. My view was a blanket of trees, with patches of blue water and a patch work of blue sky and white clouds. A large black raven soared in front of me…I was in his space.
On a different day I paddled the canoe to the other side of the lake and watched the sunset. It seemed as though the sun was sharing its magnificent beauty just with me. The sun and me, surrounded by silence as he slipped out of sight.
Silence….powerful, comforting, soothing…it may lack noise, but it holds much peace.
If my dog could read (and talk) she would probably say….”I don’t smoke and I don’t have a pet….What is the problem?!”
These colorful containers are at a local sheltered workshop that employees adults with developmental disabilities. The clients participated in creating this colorful flowerbed.
