Perched At Wehr's Dam ...


This Great Blue Heron may well be contemplating how fast
the summer flew by while perched at the historic Wehr's Dam
on a late September afternoon. The dam, built in 1904, is next 
to Wehr's Covered Bridge, which dates back to 1841, at
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,

I Dream Of Winter ...


"Faith is the bird that feels the light
when the dawn is still dark."
