Treasures 2007_24

Develop an interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature, music — the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls, and interesting people.
— Henry Miller

Treasures are positive things that strike my fancy, that make me feel happy or thankful or interested. Treasures are memories encapsulated in just a few words. These are my Treasures for the past week.

  • A hawk, floating in the air, backstroking to hold position, watching for mice or lizards on the ground

  • An egret, standing alongside 280, craning his neck (is that almost a pun?)

Treasures 2007_22

Treasures are positive things that strike my fancy, that make me feel happy or thankful or interested. Treasures are memories encapsulated in just a few words. These are my Treasures for the past week.

  • A quiet 4-day holiday weekend.

  • Being buzzed by a dragonfly in the grocery store parking lot. I just love dragon flies.
