Moving on over

I've combined my blogs, just look at the last post, over at Alchemy of Clay. Trying to have a life outside blogland. Not sure it's going to work....

The woods beckon

A trail marker at the beginning of one of our popular trails in Montreat, NC

Looking through the leaves down to the stream

Or looking through the leaves to sky above!
A thought for today:

Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival.
H.H. Dalai Lama


  1. Nice photos, B. And that is so true about compassion.

    1. Good to hear from you again here...yes, and with sudden deaths in my mind today, I am reminded of our short fragile time together on this earth.

  2. We need to head toward your area. We tend to go to Pisgah and the Parkway or Jackson County. We forget there is so much more than a furniture store in the Black Mountain area.

  3. The woods always beckon don't they? Great photos! I'd love to walk that path.

  4. Your quote is so true. If only the war mongers could have compassion for life. Difficult to believe the inhumanity that is rearing his ugly head in the middle east. A walk in your woods could possibly help to bring some sane thoughts to folks after listening to the news.
