Indigo hues splash riotously across the melancholy twilight sky;
an artist gone mad amidst the shades of dusk.
A fitting departure to the bittersweet time before the dark settles in.
Lights glimmer from humble abodes, sharing the comfort of the night.
I too shall settle in and savor memories of Indigo. (teresalhardymon)
November brings a touch more gray to the skies; the night settles in earlier and lights shine out from neighborhood windows like little beacons of hope guiding us through the dark, promising that all will be well.
This time of year is a little melancholy, inviting us to sip a hot drink while we ponder deeper things and dream of promises yet to be fulfilled. We wrap a warm throw about our shoulders, sigh deeply and realize that a slow down is just what we needed.
Slowing in grace,
PS I’ve shared Shades of Indigo before, but thought it ok to share again, since it was inspired by a November sky and the way November makes me feel.
I’m so glad you enjoyed the picture show the other day from Shaker Village. Those images will bring you many happy memories of time spent there.
Today, I’m inspired to show you the beauty of your small town. I’m glad you took the time recently to look close to home for the memories that are ready to be made right outside your own front door. There are some lovely spots to capture gorgeous Autumn.
Such as Lover’s Lane, trees and houses around town, a church, the big tree in your former Principal’s yard, the Middle School and a small town cityscape.
I hope seeing the beauty in your home town will establish your sense of place. Because we all need to belong. We all need a sense of place.
There are lots of pictures! Enjoy!
Making memories in grace,

Please forgive my absence for the past few days. I’ve been thinking of you and how much you love capturing photos of the season. I had to chuckle when your friend G told you that you take three or four pictures of the same thing when she only takes one. I get that, as I too love the fleeting beauty of Autumn. I also thought it rather funny when you told her you were a “professional photographer”. Of course, we all know you are not, but still, I love your enthusiasm for snap, snap, snapping away. So, to make up for the post cards I didn’t send your way, I thought it would be appropriate to share some photos of the season with you. Enjoy!
Snapping in grace,
