THROUGH THE LENS WEEK 65

'The greatest gift I can conceive of having from anyone is to be seen by them, to be understood and touched by them. The greatest gift I can give is to see, hear, understand and touch another person.'
~ Virginia Satir

On a good day on Cape Ann MA in 'our world' you will see many different boats and even ships.





Storm clouds? over Cape Ann MA recently ~ very grey sky. Light is always there ~ despite the clouds.

We have had quite the range of skies on Cape Ann MA ~ Climate change?





A Haiku for you and Haiku My Heart





Look at those 'alert ears' ~ Sweet and loving animals.




First the watercolor sketch then some photo editing to create this colorful sketch for Sunday Sketches ~ My muse went underground for quite awhile ~ hope she is back to stay.
