Reflecting



Just this morning I came across this reflection.  A gloomy sky and spring grass help to set the mood, on this first day of spring.  

This week has been a whirlwind of crazy schedules and work.  I appreciate all of you who have taken the time to comment, even though I haven't been able to reciprocate.   

This video showed up on my Youtube feed this week and helped to put things into perspective for me.  Gaelynn Lea won the NPR Tinydesk concert contest and what a talent she is.   As crazy as life can be, persevering and using your gifts is what it is all about.   



"Success is no accident.  It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do."

  1. A great lesson and beautiful performance from Gaelynn Lea.
    I'm just returning from a 4-day Spring Break at the river,
    and am glad I found your thoughts, your photo (beautiful, by the way)
    and this video. So thankful for your blog.
    (We all need a break sometimes, especially when the world gets crazy.)

  3. Well Michelle, we have gloomy skies and no green grass...I thought Kentucky was "bluegrass" country. Thanks for sharing your barn reflections and hurry on back.

  7. Yes, Michelle, a very nice barn. Quite an operation they have there. Farming is such hard work and has all but faded in this day and age.

    1. Donna, you are so right. Farming was such a foundation of our country, but has really left the scene as our country continues to move forward.

  12. Hi Michelle, I think one of the most impressive things about your blog (and there are many!) is your photography. I truly admire your ability to compose and capture great photos! Just looking at your last three posts ... each has a very different kind of photo but they are all wonderful in their own ways. Have a great week ahead!
