My Friday find....... beautiful....Light.

Oh my goodness... it was so lovely yesterday. I grabbed my camera for our walk......I was snapping a few shots of the winding trail...then turned around..... to discover this....

The light... it took my breath away. Oh my......

Kind of symbolic of this journey we are on.

Ultimately it all comes down to choice....We can see light…. or we can see darkness….. most days...I choose to see the light.

One step...then two....

It's there....sprinkles of blessings, big and small. GIFTS...each and every day.


I also love how 'true' these images came out.....
I don't know about you....but sometimes I 'see' the most beautiful light... but can't quite capture it in-camera. So grateful for these photos this week.....


Another Gift.... for Friday Finds....Lovely words....

On Wednesday.... I posted a new lesson in Beyond.....I wrote to the lovely 2B'ers... 'I hope to be back on a more regular basis.... I'm longing for normal-ish'....
Lovely Janet Murphy (who shared last weeks autobiography in 5 Short Chapters) wrote back to share the wise words below.....

Beautiful.....Soak them up, my friends....

If your life is kinda, sorta 'normal-ish' .... Soak that up too....
Treasure it.... honor it..... appreciate it...... LIVE it....

Normal is such a GIFT......

Until next time.... Here's to an inspired weekend.

Gratitude...forever and for-always....

Link away.... lovelies....

Looking for the light ... in so many ways, no? And your triptych is a perfect illustration of what it means to be open to the light on our journey ... whether photography or real life.

Blessings, dear Kim!

PS - No linky appeared for me either.

The light is captured beautifully in your images! I love the quote. Today I will cherish my 'normal' day.
November 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle B
Oof...these light photos took my breath away, especially that first one. Beautiful!! It really is exciting when you capture the light exactly as you see it with your own eyes. Kim, my apologies because I am SO behind in the 2B class...I need to go peek in there and see the lovely things I've missed. I love the normal quote...what a great reminder. {{{hugs}}} and good thoughts to you! <3

A rare treat when the photo turns out just as you saw it. Love it soooo much. It's a perfect blend of blue sky and gold light. Awesome!!!!!!! Wise words too. Got my book, it is sooooo incredibly good. Thanks so much!

Oh Kim, the photos of the light almost bring tears to my eyes, so beautiful. Such a gift for you and for us. And, the words you shard are very wise indeed.
November 15, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterjill
Kim, sometimes my best pictures are the ones in my rear view mirror, so I stop to capture where I have been.
I am just beginning to learn how to capture what I see through my lens and so many times it just isn't there. So when you said you don't always capture what you see, I felt a little better for my struggles.
Blessings on the winds to John, to you, and the boys.
November 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAnnalaura
OMG Kim…what a gorgeous capture! …and yes, I totally understand what you are saying about it being hard to capture light as you see it…but you have SO nailed it here! That photo took my breath away! Sending you light & love for the week ahead… *hugs*
November 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJanet
These light images are absolutely breathtaking!
November 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara
Turning back and seeing the light ... what a moment - and also capturing it in such a fantastic way - Wow! Thank you for sharing the Normal day-thought - the extraordinary is hidden in the ordinary - folding out as we're in the moments. The last lines really make it so clear ... Let's cherish this life now as we're living it!
November 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterNina
Thank you so much Kim for the new lesson in "Beyond." I'm slowly working on the self-paced lessons and it was a pleasant surprise to receive the extra boost. Your spirit shines through - and it's such a beautiful one. Thank you for continuing to inspire us.
November 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterRosanna
Oh Kim, I'm loving the light…and those tree branches…great dof…Normal…I'm starting to wonder what that is myself…but I'll hold onto the words…xoxo
