The Sun Brings Many Possibilities

Saturday, January 05, 2013

I can imagine why early people were taken with the sun. It brings warmth to a cold land. It brings hope to a dismal gray week. After all, the temperature here has warmed up from 22 to 36 degrees. Early people might have wondered if it was a good time to walk down to the river to get water, or ice to melt.

I'm wondering about packing my lunch and wandering down to the river to walk, take pictures, even paint a picture if my fingers don't fall off first.
Maybe go south and explore Brasstown Bald or find a waterfall for plein aire painting.

I have on clean clothes. Laundry can wait until this evening after the sun goes down.

Yep sounds like a good afternoon!!

    We've got dodgy snow now, lots of clouds. Yesterday the sun was shining. I love sunlight and during the winter I tend to hibernate and get anti-social. Guess I should invest in one of those lightbulbs that makes you feel good.

    Enjoy your painting adventure!!!

    I hope you layer when you go out in the sun. We often walk on the rail trail when I do not have this annoying flu. e layer, we take hats and gloves and sunglasses and if you get warm open just the coat the body loses heat rapidly. I sometimes took off jacket and in just a few minutes I had regretted it.

    Winter sun and bright blue skies trick you in to under dressing, that is not good.
    Maybe you can take a photo and go home with it as a reminder. Maybe use it as a landscape the camera and the eye see very similar images. The motion is not there so one sense gets lost but it gives you some incentive. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon

    You must live someplace nice. The sun is seldom seen here this time of year, and never too far from the horizon.

    Absolutely! Out came the sun, and our temps went from the teens to the 30s. Life seems so much more possible now.

    Enjoy your lovely day!

    Sounds like a peaceful, meditative day out in the fresh air, admiring nature! Good for the soul and the body.
