I wonder why I appreciate the character and strength that this barn represents. . .
It sits abandoned in a field of grass, left to enjoy it's last years .. .
Other than a new roof it appears to be left to age gracefully. . .
and indeed I think it is beautiful.
When I look closely at my face. . . .
I look for signs of "beautiful" aging and yet the world has been successful in telling me otherwise.
I know in my heart it is wrong to buy into the commercial standard of beauty that says youth equals beauty. .. .why do I have such a hard time believing my heart?
More on this another time. .
This photo is almost a four season photo.
The green grass of summer .. .
the golden leaves of autumn. . .
and the fresh snow of winter.
I must say. . . .
I was mighty tempted to hold a tulip to be seen close up. . .to make it four seasons.
Oh ....fantastic news. . .a rain warning is in effect .. .
windy and wet. . how fun.
I think I'll have the grands over. . . it isn't too soon to pass on my love for weather watching.
Have a wonderful day my friends. .
