Winter in Illinois can challenge a person to look a little harder for nature’s beauty. Luckily, I got to see and photograph this sunset.
A walk in the timber, overlooking the Kaskaskia River, rarely disappoints, too.
Plus, the energy exerted climbing these hills is good therapy!
I love Sycamore trees, too. I wish the old trees in this timber could tell me their stories.
Then, I had that feeling … of someone watching … Look closely; do you see the gnarled, old man – giving this tree quite a human appearance?
I believe his silence speaks volumes of wisdom. I read a quote on Pinterest once that stayed with me:
Wisdom is silent – insecurities are loud.
Except for this guy:
His loudness is not insecurity. His is Happy-ness! Ever alert and watchful. Smarter than he may appear.
For this Friday, friends, I hope you find peace and winter’s beauty.
