“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”

We will be traveling to Boston in a few days and will miss a couple weeks of the Asheville autumn colors, so we decided to take a fast ride up the Blue Ridge Parkway and down Highway 151 to take a look at how much the leaves have changed so far.
The forest is mostly green, still, but the reds and yellows are making an appearance! And everything seems so vibrant and full of life.
“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”

What a stunning day on the Blue Ridge Parkway today. Perfect clarity and intense colors everywhere.
We are heading south, toward Mount Pisgah.

|Looking up. Soar.|

Best way for us to enjoy Spring? Aimlessly wander and soak it all in.

|Why does the fowl cross the road?|
We rode about a hundred miles in all.
We were on the road early enough to miss the traffic, but the animals were out and about, including this one, crossing the road near Biltmore Lake tennis courts...
In life, there are always unexpected photo opportunities. You gotta be ready.

I love to ride, but it is always hard to leave our dog Kolo because she always looks so sad to be left behind. This morning, while getting ready, I took a selfie, then turned the camera on her.

|Pond Road, Asheville, North Carolina|
We were able to ride around Asheville, even though it was a bit chilly, a bit windy, but still nice to be out on the motorcycle, soaking in the blue sky. I took several nice photographs, including this one from Pond Road, just off of Sardis Road, very near to my house. I loaded the photo onto a new iPad program called Waterlogue and it created this watercolor.
Suddenly I am a better watercolor artist. I like it very much.

Photographing while on the Harley is a wonderful adventure. I become immersed in the landscape. I take a lot of photographs. And I often fall in love with the landscape which is available to me just beyond my view finder. Here is a spectacular tree that we discovered today.

I am organizing my photographs, adding quotes with my iPad, and then connecting my images and words with my large site, dailycelebrations.com, my photography site Celebrations and Sunrises, and my poetry blog, Miracles and Love.
As I work with each photo, I discover new ideas for creativity. And over and over I am humbled by my good fortune and how much I love riding on the back of our Roadglide, photographing what I see, and translating my experiences on line.
Will I ever have enough time to add all the photos and write down all of my thoughts? I do not know. But there certainly is great joy in trying. The world just seems wide open with possibilities.
My goal is to connect all of my sites this way. The connections complement each other and reveal the light and colors of my heart.
