“Awake, my dear. Be kind to your sleeping heart. Take it out into the vast, fields of Light, And let it breathe.”
Bright wild yellow mustard brushes a sweep of color on a sunny and peaceful May afternoon on a hillside of the Central Range of Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, awakening the landscape from the gray winter to the happiness of spring.
The color yellow is often associated with peace and happiness.

“Happiness, not in another place but this place … not for another hour, but this hour.”

"I see nothing in space as promising
as the view from a Ferris Wheel."

"When I no longer thrill to the first snow of the season,
I'll know I'm growing old."
~ Claudia "Lady Bird" Johnson
This brightly colored sled left behind by a child
shines like a beam of happiness after this season's
first significant snowfall on a November evening
at Trexler Memorial Park, Alletown, Pennsylvania,
a reminder to always see the season's first snowfall
with childlike wonder.
