Departure before daybreak


I don't know how it can be
that the same farm country that bored me to tears as a child


fills me with peace and serenity now.


I suppose that maybe it signifies my work is done,
and now the joy of the journey begins at last.


Our kids had new books to read, so I don't think they noticed one way or the other.

Tracy I loved these pictures...especially this last one. I've always wanted to live on a farm and I suppose that wasn't part of God's path for me because it hasn't happened. But just looking at one makes me smile. There's a feeling of home and family and acceptance about a farm that doesn't seem present in other settings to me. Thanks for sharing. blessings, marlene

These are GORGEOUS! I esp. love the fingernail of a crescent moon in the first one. Hope 2012 holds all you wish for, and more!
