Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

Frosty morning walk - how I started my day...

Leaving the house:




Arriving at the forest:





Mmmmm... nice.





Mist on the lake:





Odd ones out:





The light slipping through sideways:

Hello Katie - Good to see you again!

It is a lovely place to walk (or run, occassionally) and you can get quite lost in your thoughts...

Funny, I went to two of my favourite places today - the forest, and also to the sea, near where my mum is. We went and sat in the car, facing the waves - it was brilliant!

Hi White Rabbit! ('no time, no time- I'm late!') Hope you've had a good weekend - sounds like you've had a busy one :-) Blogs not going anywhere in the immediate future, so you've got plenty of time to catch up :-)

Hiya Kitty - I knew you and David would pick up on the 'coming in sideways'! :-D

Every time I see those three silver birch, I always think about how they stand there proudly, holding their own against the big boys (the firs).I love the white colour of their bark against the dark background... definately my favourite tree.. along with the oak, and the laburnum (which in Denmark is called 'Guld Regn' (which always seems to me to be saying 'Gold Rain', but actually translates as 'Yellow Rain') and maybe the Scots Pine too... Oh, and if we had any Elms left, they would be in the top five! Ok, that's enough of that now... :-)

Must admit, I do love to have an affectionate cat around, but instead I had two very boisterous dogs, one of which (the little one!) kept trying to knock me over with this giant pole he carried in his mouth, by rushing up behind me, and trying to pass between my legs with it!

Hello - back! And I like your mushroom tree picture in the slide. We spend a fair bit of our time mushroom identifying so that picture jumped out!

Is the ground cracked because it's dry? (bit of a foreign concept at the moment up here) Made my boyfriend come in here to help me decide but he's off now to get another beer.

Beauty misty shot...looks like our fall. We just got a dump of snow Fri. but today it's melting and going to be above freezing all week so will soon disappear! Crazy back and forth weather. Soon we will not be known as The Great White North!

Hello Topchamp - that mushroom tree, as you call it, was taken in the middle of the dried out reservoir last summer (2005). The only water that was left was a trickle through the middle where the original stream flowed. At this moment, in time it is covered by a good few feet of water!

If you're good at recognising fungi, do you know what that bright orange one in the slide is? I used the pic in my How Weird am I? post. I think I took it in late October/ early November...

MOI - heard on the radio as I drove home ealier, that in Norway it was the warmest they'd had for 60 years, and for the first time in memory, the person interviewed said, there wasn't snow at this time of year. But, from what you've said in your posts, I get the impression there's been a fair bit of snow? (I wish we had just a little more over here! It's lovely when we can get out and sledge, or build a snowman... but then, I suppose we actually enjoy it when it comes, and don't groan so much about it! :-) )

M. Shahin & Quasar9 - Shame you couldn't have been there... it really was very magical, with all the leaves at the side of the path popping like bubble wrap, and little drips where the sun hit the trees, and the sound of running streams just off to the side...

My lovely son's kicking me off to work again (hurumph! I've only just got on!!! :-( ) So, I'll try and get back on later to post something!

What a great way to start the day. I think the serenity and freshness lasts a few hours in your pyche.

Maryan - I think yesterday morning is still with me even now! (Even though it's been raining and all over the place today... hectic too)

Hiya Mystic - you'll have to come with me sometime. Then I'd love to come to your woods where you met your 'presense'!
