My great friend, Terry Valley, who is a professional photographer in Wisconsin, grants me permission to use his photos for any and every reason. I love his work, and I love sharing it, so today I thought I’d post a collection of his ‘bodies of water’ photos for you to enjoy.
Symbol of Summer
I’m having a rather melancholy Monday, so I decided to just post a picture that makes me feel happy. I played this piano for years. So did one of my best friends in the world. So did the master pianist Liberace. What a colorful past it’s had. It has a new home in Georgia now. And I’m happy just thinking about it.
It’s been a week of enormous strain and pressure, but the result is a great deal of work completed successfully. I’m relieved, a little bit proud, and very much in need of some R&R. Probably won’t get it, but looking at this picture relaxes me. It makes me want to take a long, deep breath and let it out slowly, then kick back, close my eyes, and just inhale the rich scents of autumn. So I thought I’d just go ahead and share it with you. Some of you might need the refreshing it offers as well.
Not much time to post lately, but I CANNOT ignore such a great picture of coffee and the Smoky Mountains together. Enjoy!

Just another beauty from my favorite photographer: Terry Valley
God’s earth is so full of His beauty that even ordinary grass suddenly finds itself crowned with it. This spread of little purple flowers just had to force its way up and out of the ground — right in the midst of my yard — to give a colorful tribute to the Creator.
