bRyCe A cReAtIvE  There's a whisper on the night-wind, there's a star agleam to guide us, And the Wild is calling, calling . . . let us go.

Looking at the waters close by and enjoying the bits of relaxation available for contemplation.

Very restorative.

I had to include an image looking straight out an icy pier. Really looking forward to the ice clearing and being able to walk out while leaving the comfort of land :-)

The pier next to the one in the previous image. Since it wasn't all busted up, it was able to capture more water and ice. Really interesting to see. The best part of walking up to the waters edge was this eerie sound coming off the water. It was springy and slightly echoed slowly filling up the area but never quite overtaking me. The closer I got to the water, the more frantic the noise became. It wasn't until I saw a flock of geese over 100 meters away that I realized what the notice was. As their webbed feet hit the ice, a drumming effect would reverberate through the top of the ice washing over me in this light dusting of spookiness.

Haven't been to #conneautlake in a while and wanted to see how the lingering cold was holding on. Interesting how the ice is higher than the water level.

My youngest and I play games regularly. Today's #boardgame is a new one to us, after rummaging around in the attic, yet a real oldie. #RoadRunner #Game by #MiltonBradley put out in 1968. Not sure where we got this, could be from my wife's grandparents, but no one in the immediate circle has played it in the last few years, maybe decade. After two LONG games, I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be playing it again anytime soon. What I did like about it was my wee one saying, "Beep , Beep!" while moving the Road Runner around the board. Good times.

Thought all these different elements looked great, flowed nicely, and seemed as if someone put it together when they didn't . #foundart #wayoftheleaf

#Mandala complete and standing room only for the closing ceremony by the #Tibetan #Buddhist monks from Drepung Loseling. I didn't get of photo of them singing their prayers or sweeping away their work as I just wanted to listen and take part in it all.

I honestly thought they'd be done by now. There is gonna be a prayer service tomorrow culminating in the sweeping away of the mandala which seeks to demonstrate the idea of life's impermanence. It's really cool to witness.

I didn't have the few other things I wanted to photograph on paper plates, so I figured these characters might be a suitable substitute subject :-)

Burnt toast on pink paper plate.
I want to buy or build a proper light box. Perhaps. Thing is, I dislike the slight shadowing that comes from not perfecting the area around the subject; however, except for perfecting the subject and surrounding area, the subject and area are not perfect. This begs the question - should perfection of image be sought?

#Snow #Winter & a temporary #Mountain
I was walking back to my car, marveling at all the fluffy, pristine snow that had fallen and was continuing to fall, when I saw this patch of wind honed art against a pillar of the car garage. The white had built up in a lovely contrast to the municipal green capturing much of the mood I was feeling.
Hope you enjoy the moment.
