A Gift While I Rested

Sometimes a fellow traveler offers you a gift. She might live a mile away, or she (and her sisters) might live on the other side of a continent.

Her mother might put the gift in a little basket, cover it with a linen cloth, and set it beside you while you are taking a rest.

That's what Kathleen Overby did for me. These photos were taken by her daughter Tessa, who recently "restored" with her sisters at a rustic cabin. The photos, said Kathleen, were a gift from the girls, to "honor [my] yes."

I asked, could I share them with others, for we are not alone. And they graciously agreed.

One a writer, her daughter a poet with photo.

Blessings both of them.

The images are wonderful. There's beautiful contrast and light, and the colors are stunning. I've always loved trails into the beyond, full of possibility, of meetings along the way, of findings waiting.
