A Beating Heart and a Pool of Tears

A Beating Heart and a Pool of Tears
I found this lovely madrone leaf a few days ago and had to get my camera because it was such a special sight. It reflects the way things are for me right now too...I'm not in a good place and sometimes it's hard to find the will to do anything at all. I hope things will get better...

My Two Insets
One of the things that makes me happy is finding mushrooms and right now the micro mushrooms peek out at me when I stare nose-close at the lichen and moss-covered oak trees which these darling, miniscule mushrooms call their home. When I say tiny, they are only about 1/16-1/8" in diameter when full grown! So cute!

Finally, it hasn't been snowing lately but the forecast suggests some snowy days in the next week. We'll see, but in the meantime, the inset pano is from a month back when we had a very cold weather pattern roll through. Such a pretty sight!

I am very worried about our ipernity friend George (Tiabunny), whose home was threatened once again, by the horrific fires in Australia. I hope he is ok.

Pam, you are in my thoughts as well, and I'm so happy about your upcoming surgery, though I am worried too because it's some serious business. Hoping that the outcome places you on the path for a much happier lifestyle with improvements in your vision and ability to create as you did before.

Thank you all for visiting me when I have not been by for so long. It's so touching. I am sorry I don't have the energy to share with all of you...my life is sucking me dry right now. I feel terrible about neglecting all of my friends. :(

This is gorgeous, Janet, and perfectly photographed, and I hope getting out and seeing these beautiful things helps you get things back in perspective. The touch of color in the leaf and the perfect exposure of the water really make for a great shot. The moss and mushroom are exquisite, just what we refer to as "small nature." Sorry that the title and comments convey so much grief and trouble. In any case, I appreciate the comments on my photos and especially the description of the lichen-covered branch as a coral reef. That fits perfectly!

What fantastic pictures, Janet, as only you know how to create. I just love the leaf with the water in it, but the minute mushroom in the moss is just superb. I hadn't realised you'd had so much snow already, but I do hope that if you do get this snow that's been forecasted, isn't too bad for you all.

As for you not being in a good place at the moment - you don't have to apologize for not visiting us - we're not going anywhere. I'm just sorry that you are feeling like this, and if there is anything I can do to help you, please let me know. BTW the floop should be finished in a day or so, so be ready!!!!

THESE PHOTOS AS EVER ARE THE LIGHT INSIDE YOU BREAKING OUT. HOLD THAT IN YOUR HREART... THE LIGHT WILL LIFT YOU HIGHER.. HUGSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

THE UPCOMING SURGERY SADLY WILL NOT MEND WHAT THE STROKE BROKE. WHAT IT WILL DO IS HOPEFULLY STOP THE OCCURRENCE OF ANOTHER STROKE WHICH WO;LD DO EVEN MORE DAMAGE.
I TAKE WHAT I CAN FROM THIS LEAP OF TRUST. ITS A DAMNED GOOD DEAL.

JANET... THE RIDE IS ROUGH FOR YOU.. BUT THE CAROUSEL STILL TURNS AND THE MUSIC STILL PLAYS...
FEEL THE JOY....

OH, Janet, I love these! The leaf is simple and magical, with a lot of interest in the color gradations. Sort of like spilled paint in an artist's studio.

Der Blick balanciert den Stiel hinunter, hält kurz inne und genießt die Sicht auf die Maserungen rechts und links des Weges ums sich dann mit einem lautlosen Platscher im Wässerchen zu versenken.

There is something poignant, wistful even in this gentle image, (very well composed and taken of course), it jumps out even as a thumbnail. I like Diane Putnam's description too, very apt. Enjoy your art :)

A lovely image, Janet, and I'm very sorry that you have been feeling down: even more that you've been so worried on my account with the fires! Although we had some "exciting" moments with the fires on several occasions, we now are in slightly milder weather and those near us seem to have been controlled. At this point I'm busily trying to catch up with ipernity and the many things that we have to reorganise now the fire risks have reduced (eg taking flammable outdoor furniture back to its normal position, putting curtains back up, etc. Not to mention washing off all the soot that's everywhere! PS I almost forgot to say how much I like your winter panorama.
