Simple Things

One afternoon last summer I walked out the patio door and snapped this photo; I have looked at the photo at least 3-5 times each week. I titled it "Simple Things". I placed the dried out gourd on a shelf the beginning of summer, loving the look of it, it reminds me of how something 'simple'...can be so beautiful. I need simple things in my life, they help unravel the knots... some by chance, some of my own making.

...with an eye made quiet by the power
of harmony, and the deep power of joy,
we see into the life of things.
--William Wordsworth, Tintern Abbey

If you haven't noticed, I am a "quote" junkie.:) I have Portia and Marelli, and they are indeed a part of the family. I do not trust people that do not like dogs!:) I love all animals. They make sense to me, where most people do not.:) Thanks for stopping by, always nice to see you have visited. Have a wonderful weekend Amy.
