Take a moment

I'm sure your week was off to a busy start and the pace will probably pick up from here. Things to do, places to go ...

But turn on the music (link below the photo), sit down beside the still water with your feet up and look at the Spanish moss hanging in the trees. No one ever said on their death bed "I wish I had spent more time at work." Make sure you spend that precious commodity time on those near and dear to you, and also spend some on yourself.

[and speaking of spending time, the annual trek of family fleeing flakes and ice and cold from up north is almost upon us. First ones arrive tomorrow followed by others in quick succession. My time in blogland will be curtailed over the next six weeks but I will try to squeeze in a visit here and there]

Guess where we are? Fort McMurray AB!! Snow, snow and more snow. It just keeps coming down. Your photo today makes me want to swat mosquitos for just a few minutes. I'd have to be in a screen house to enjoy this view I think. Enjoy your company. Pam

Rick, Rick, Rick... you have totally put together two works of soul touching and heart soothing pieces; the music completely enhances the already magnificent photo. I would love to sit by this water with my iPod and camera close by, can you add me to the list of visitors? lol

Enjoy your visits, have a wonderful week and may God continue bless and be with you and all of your loved ones.

Hi Rick, enjoy your break with your family. We will be right here waiting for you to come back with more gorgeous pictures.

Love this picture, it's really beautiful. Excellent click. Thanks for the song "when I grow too old to dream" but I hope we can grow old gracefully without asking everyone What's my age again? Or My name is......????? LOL

I'll be celebrating my Chinese New Year this weekend. Busy right now baking cookies and cakes.

Have a great week ahead,regards.
