A hard frost last night, and sunshine this morning. I went back to the prairie plantings on campus and was able to catch a few sparks of light before the warmth dispersed the frost.
And here's a before and after shot -- yesterday's coneflower above, and today's below.
And to close with, maple leaves in the sun.
"Instructions for living a life:
Tell about it."
Mary Oliver in "Sometimes"
I've taken on a prayer practice of looking for the moments of light in each day, whether actual or metaphorical, and then writing or posting photos of what I find.
