Wild Red ...


"Never look back unless
you are planning to go that way."
                     ~ Henry David Thoreau
                                    ~ 1817-1862

The light of a late August sunset dances around
a wild and beautiful red fox as it peers ahead
in the high grass in the waning summer at
Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

January On The Jordan ...



"I saw that my life was a vast glowing empty
page and I could do anything I wanted."
                            ~ Jack Kerouac
                                ~ 1922-1969

The light of approaching sunset dances and glows on the icy waters of the Jordan Creek at
Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, 
Pennsylvania on a gorgeous winter day.

This view of the flowing creek speaks to
me of following your dreams, possibilities,
and the inspiriting words of Jack Kerouac.

I captured this scene soon after the historic
January Blizzard of 2016. In a winter shorn
of snow until the blizzard, the storm plonked
31 inches of snow on nearby Allentown
in a 24 hour period.

Painting The Snow Goose ...


"The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white.

Neither need you do anything but be yourself."

                                    ~ Lao Tzu

                                                    ~ died 531 B.C., China
