Thinking of Home
This photo was taken by my friend Devra on our walk.
by the side of the road
alongside a stream of clear water
in the shade of a willow tree
I paused for what I thought
would be just a moment

I've been away on vacation for a week but heading home tomorrow. I walked along the Blanco river yesterday with dear longtime friends on a beautiful sunny but blustery day. We saw a sharp shinned female hawk circling above us and fussing because we were standing under the tree where her nest was. We soon moved on down the bank. I've had a marvelous time here in the Texas Hill Country where I used to live for almost 12 years.
Tomorrow I'll be home and ready to work in my studio. I think I have spring fever and am ready to create. I've opened my etsy shop again, taken off vacation mode.
Hope everyone is having at least some spring weather in their life!
