gratitude and old farmhouses

There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth. ~Rumi

I much appreciated that Michelle at  WordPress  Hot off the Press   in”Around the World in Ten Photos” included my “Lagoon of the bonny swans”(from Tea time at the castle).   Beautiful photos all, including those of my friends Laura Macky and Mark Simms.

For those storytellers among us, look for my guest story post on SarahPotterWrites.  She has a wonderful blog, full of poetry and literary delights as well as photography.

and  thank you to  Cee Neuner  for her shadow and other challenges and also to Leanne Cole. So many great photos and photographers.  It’s a joy to see and be inspired by so many!

And a humble thanks to all the talented photographers, bloggers and storytellers who have visited and/or are now following my blog.

and thank you infraredrobert!!
