What Spring Does to Christmas Art!

Every year my friend Shaolin sends the most gorgeous hand drawn Christmas cards. My husband eagerly awaits her card, as they are just so gorgeous. All the time and effort put into her creations is much appreciated by us.

The other day as the sun was setting, my husband called me into the kitchen and said, “Get your camera!” I thought maybe one of the cats was doing something cute. But, wow, the way the sun set was shining on Shaolin’s drawing, which we keep pinned up on our refrigerator, was a most gorgeous site!

Too cool not to share with fellow bloggers!

I Could Live Forever in the Twilight Zone

Long Beach Island, New Jersey – at twilight

My favorite time of the day is twilight and I make it a point to be outside during this time as much as possible.

I just love the pink and blue skies, which always remind me of a Maxfield Parrish painting.

“Look at that Maxfield Parrish sky!” I am often heard saying.

The weather cools as the sun starts to set. Birds are flying to a safe haven for the night. Life starts to quiet down.

It’s the prettiest part of the day, and it goes so quickly.

I stand on my doorstep sucking every bit of the twilight into my soul before I’m ready to call it a day.

It’s twilight time. And I could live forever in the twilight zone.
