Dedicated to doors that open and to others that shut. Such is lie.li.fe
Prior.art. Steps set to no music. Dancing always allowed. Stars welcomed, some lost.
So, here is a small toast to inviting doors and also to fertile clear waters.
I have always lived near an ocean, but I always preferred fresh water - it felt safer and more peaceful, intimate. I enjoy being at lakes and streams and find comfort in the likelihood of shade. I burn.
I used to canoe and a trip to the New Jersey Pine Barrens and a marsh called Brigantine forged a twenty year love of birding. New Jersey is a wonderful state - much maligned due to an industrial corridor near NYC. Otherwise it is paradise. Cape May, at the southern tip, is one of my favorite places on earth, particularly during the fall bird migration.
These images were manipulated from a Trijnie photograph of Norway. There must have been amazing birds nearby.
