Fifty words

Who can resist pausing when walking across train tracks?

Who can resist the beauty of golden grasses set against lush green pastures?

Who can resist the soft down of the cottonwood trees?
Small pleasures. . .with few words. . .
utter contentment. .
on this day in ..
July.
Have a wonderful day my friends..

  2. Words of contentment invite me this morning Lovella.
    A quick run up a mountain and down to the quiet waters of the lake to refresh.

  5. As a wise person once said, "Life is not about how many breaths you take, but its the moments that take your breath away."

    Beautiful photos.

  7. Not to negate your sentiments, but I just spent part of my morning vaccuuming that soft down out of my window screens. :)

  11. The '&'symbol is called an "ampersan" so amp is a short form of the word, but of course I don't know why the word needs to be spelled out after the 'and'(&) symbol.

  12. Nice shots...good prose. Nature's simple beauty evokes a sense of contentment. I can just about 'see you' ambling along, camera strung over one shoulder...content in your walk.

    Blessings today Lovella
