Waiting on the Cold

Having risen at sunrise on the third day into this wretched winter cold, I noticed the morning light casting a shadow, from the shell hanging, on the far bedroom wall.

Even though there were days when I hardly strayed from the couch, I gladdened at the light that oozed through the sheers, especially since I was house bound.

Everything seems to take on a special quality when scant afternoon or morning light fleetingly makes its presence. Take what sunlight you can.

Ten days later, I find that the light is still seeping through the windows, compelling me to go outdoors.

  1. Hi Ter, glad your feeling better. Can you tell me what kind of bird this is at the beginning of your post? I’ve never saw it before and have not yet been able to get the book out to find it.

  2. Glad you are feeling better! I love the first shot. I notice the light creeping into my house in the morning. It’s one of my favorite things to see, and something I’ve never been able to capture with a camera. You, dear, captured it perfectly!
