I have been feeling a tad too boring to be blogging lately. Digging weeds day after day makes for pretty dull conversation. Also, somehow I had gotten it into my head that the quiet byways that I used to frequent were now inundated by crowds of people enjoying “nature” and therefore to be avoided. How selfish of me, but as per usual, it was nothing like I thought.

Anyway, I went out today. I saw less than a handful of people. I even said hello. It didn’t kill me. It was actually kind of nice. I had forgotten about the autumn light. Better make the most of it – the light, the time, the quiet.

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Finding Peace. It is only one photo but you have to start somewhere.

So? How are roo?

Kind Regards.

  1. It was good to see a new post from you, Tracy! I love the roo photo. In my house, “roo” is what our dog says when he wants to go for a walk. I’m doing fine, plugging away on a new novel.

      1. Novel writing is very hard work, and I still need to hit up some brick-and-mortar libraries out of state. I’m sorry to hear that your rodent plague continues. I hope they’re staying out of your house.

      2. I can’t think of anything harder, Liz. Research is hard too. Gold star for your efforts.
        The rats are outside rats but when it starts getting really cold , they will be checking our house defences. The neighbour has FINALLY got a compost bin so the warm compost heap won’t be available to them this winter.

  2. I know how that feels — this season people are here to see the cranes and I kind of resent and kind of love them. When I talk to one it’s almost always wonderful. I’m glad they’re here because, in the grand scheme, it’s good for my valley, but…

  3. I know it’s autumn for you Tracy, but it’s “astronomical” spring around my end of things. Today was the first time I saw the sunset through my northern winter. Spring isn’t here yet, but soon. Whenever I see your posts about nature I have to allow my mind to wrap around the fact that our seasons are reversed. Enjoy autumn.

    1. Thanks. I am, Lou. The days are getting shorter so less time for all the things I need to do. I haven’t done the mosaic, although I have a design. The rodents out the back scare me so I have been avoiding that workspace!


    1. Thank you, Ann. They were a pretty chill bunch that afternoon.
      It might be a little surprising if you saw them hopping down the street. I understand that there are now local populations of wallabies in the UK, probably started by some zoo escapees.
