This is my little Thanksgiving tease!!!!!!!! A few days ago this pumpkin was sitting in the lake and a few feet away was the egret…..I’m so sorry but I just had to do it!!!!! I combined both the images to give this lovely friendly bird a new nest!!! Just as I have a “new nest”, I give thanks also for the new job, the new friends, the new surroundings that I now call home. The “giving thanks” is a great way to live life……….
Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
Much love,
aka Jazzy

The art of collecting the interesting and intriguing things of this world and bringing excitement of the possibility of “freezing” that moment in time are the reasons that my eyes have broadened to look under and over and in between the winds of the nights and the lights of the days…… Come walk beside me and we can be the “sunshine” for this season in time……….. just walk beside me…………..
