Let There Be Light

I'm really late today but hey,  I'm here.  I had so much fun with the light today, starting really early this morning..first time ever I just grabbed my boots, threw on my coat...the long one, grabbed Canon and hopped in the car.   Still had jammies on and no underwear, hadn't brushed my teeth or even had a cup of green tea yet..I did take one with me though...i have not been this excited about the light in months.

Last night we had the most amazing snow storm.  When I woke up this morning and lifted the shade it was dazzling in my in the trees.  I knew this early morning light would not last...I also knew when the sun got a bit higher I would lose all that beautiful sparkle that was sticking to off I went.   It felt so good to be out in the fresh air,  the only one in the woods except for the birds...It felt so good to be spontaneous and free.  It felt really good to be able to hear the quietness of life.   I haven't been out like this in many just felt good to claim a piece of myself again..

As it turns out, my lesson for 2B this week was to find the light...capture it.   Find a spot in your house that provides good light for those days that you can't get out or for those wonderful still-life shots that you want to do...Today I did both.

I spent time outside..then I came inside..walking and waiting for the good light...early afternoon it entered my guest bedroom...and I got busy on my homework. Another thing I love...getting my Click magazine in the mail..I LOVE this's such a treat...first I just look at the cover,  then I put it on my night stand for later. It is not a magazine to be needs to have a date with it...I know it's there but I know in order to enjoy it I have to let the excitement build a bit...this is one of those magazines that you read cover to cover and devour the photo's and the tips...I mark it up with my know, for things to check out later. Oh Cllick is not just a's an adventure. So I think about it,  then I warm my bed up with the electric blanket and I must have my cup of tea ready...and really I hate to say this but only Gracie and I are allowed in the bed when it's time to pick  this magazine up for husband beside me trying to chit chat about "whatever"...this is defiantly ME time...

So today was a good day...a great day in the scheme of things...ah to feel the freedom of normalcy, even if it doesn't last into tomorrow, is a gift...just for today...I found the light and the light is good....
