Blinding ...


but beautiful.
Glaring, but wanted.
Is that the sun?
Oh winters melancholy curtain has shifted!
Tis the sun in all its brilliant glory!
Be quick, 
my soul to saturate before clouds obscure once more.
  Faythe M. Anstedt 3-1-2011


sunshine breaks over WI winters river


Isn't it funny how a brief day of sunshine can 
 illuminate ones spirit?

    It is so true how much wonder the sun brings. I love seeing the morning sun comes up with it's greeting and even miss the even sun as it goes to warm someone else's spirit.
