Another Wednesday.. Words..Water and Sepia Scenes!

"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike."

"None of Nature's landscapes are ugly so long as they are wild."

"Earth has no sorrow that earth can not heal."
~ all By John Muir

John Muir.. who was born on this day in 1838.. is remembered for many things.. an immigrant.. an inventor.. a botanist.. a writer.. and a fruit rancher. But it was his never ending love of nature.. and the hope to preserve it for future generations that we can thank him for today..It was Muir who convinced President Teddy Roosevelt to protect Yosemite (including Yosemite Valley), Sequoia, Grand Canyon and Mt. Rainier as National Parks..In 1892, he helped to found the Sierra Club.. America’s oldest and largest environmental organization. He was president of the club from its start until his death in 1914.

Many years after his death, Muir continues to be an inspiration to those striving to protect the natural environment.

Sepia Scenes~ Sitting eerily silent and still the day I was there.. this old water wheel could use a few repairs.. The afternoon sunshine appeared to bathe the entire area with a golden light..I think that the beautiful golden glow is easily seen in sepia..

Watery Wednesday~ One of my favorite places to fish. .. this old house is perfectly mirrored in the crystal clear waters of the pond.. If I owned this place I would never leave but would instead be always found sitting in one of the giant rockers that hides inside the screened in porch.. I can sit out here for hours watching the birds and deer.. We have also seen turtles.. beaver.. and Alligators here..

Wonderful! The photographs are lovely and the narrative nicely done. The haiku is a breath catcher. Sadly, so true.
