"and there is no end to illusion"

I accidentally bumped the camera setting, but like the result.

"DREAM delivers us to dream,
and there is no end to illusion.

San Juan Islands from the ferry.

Victoria, B.C.

Life is a train of moods
like a string of beads,

Puget Sound: Wollochet Bay by my house.

as we pass through them,

My son explores a flooded park in Rockford, IL.

they prove to be
many-colored lenses

North San Diego County, sunset.

Olympic Mountains, sunset.

which paint the world
their own hue,

Sequim, WA, at midday.

and each shows only
what lies in its focus."

          -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Puget Sound: View from my desk, Gig Harbor

This is what I do when I have no new fabric art worth blogging about. Going back through the old photo files feeds my hunger for color, and Emerson feeds the soul. If you click on the photos you'll get a larger view. Enjoy!

Have a colorful day

Very profound - BOTH the photos and the quote.

Poetry and photos, what could be better on my grey, rainy morning. Along with my coffee, of course.
