"Happiness and the Future"...

Get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can and don't put off being happy until some future date.

"Raw Materials"...

From a time when everything was natural and locally sourced. Whether you needed a fence post, window pane or front door, the choice was easy. Homesteads had two front doors for a variety of reasons, depending on the style, age, and location. Oftentimes, one door was for formal (guests) and one door for casual, everyday access. Sometimes it was designed to improve air flow since there was no air-conditioning.

"Waterfall Gathering"...

To gather is to seek and bring closer. Water has this uncanny ability to draw us closer, to bring us in, to mesmerize us and calm us. This scene offers many variances of water visuals, if only you could hear the variety in sound as well. We take water for granted on many levels. The next time you're around water, take in more than just the visuals. Hope you enjoy. Comments welcome.

"Among the Trees"...

Moments are as special as you want them to be. Oftentimes, it may only be a twinkle of a person's eye, the sway of a tree, or the sun glinting among the trees.
