Frosting The Jordan ...


"In the depth of winter,

I finally learned that

within me there lay an

invincible summer." 

                    ~ Albert Camus

                                  ~ 1913-1960 

Winter frosts the Jordan Creek into crystalized beauty
as it winds it's way on a January day 
through Wehr's Covered Bridge Park,
Orefield, Pennsylvania.

Into The Woods ...


"Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked,
in which you can walk with love and reverence."
                        ~Henry David Thoreau
                                              1817-1862 

The trail takes on a moody beauty on a cloudy evening
in early June at Wehr's Covered Bridge Park,
Orefield, Pennsylvania.

Aspirations ...


"Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations.
I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, 
believe in them, and try to follow where they lead."
                                                       ~ Louisa May Alcott
                                                                           (1832-1888)

on a May afternoon at Wehr's Covered Bridge Park,

Fire Of The Frost ...



"It is the life of the crystal,
 the architect of the flake, 
 the fire of the frost,
 the soul of the sunbeam, 
This crisp winter air is full of it."
                             ~ John Burroughs
                                   ~ 1837-1921
                               ~ "Winter Sunshine"
                                                    ~ 1875                        
                                     

An artistic view of leaves frozen in a chunk of ice in January at Wehr's Covered Bridge Park, Orefield, Pennsylvania reminded me of the line penned by John Burroughs.

Crystal Blue Persuasion ...


"Better get ready to see the light,
Love, love is the answer,
Ooh, ooh and that's all right."
                                        ~ "Crystal Blue Persuasion"

Leaves frozen in this chunk of ice recently at Wehr's Covered Bridge Park,
Orefield, Pennsylvania brought to mind the 1969 song originally recorded
by Tommy James and the Shondells, composed by Eddie Gray, 
Tommy James and Mike Vale.

A Journey Begins ...


"He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star."
                                                             ~ William Blake

Awash in the December sunlight, a leaf reflects as it begins its journey
down the Jordan Creek at Wehr's Covered Bridge Park,
Orefield, Pennsylvania.
