"Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow. i am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush of far off birds in circling flight.
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in every flower that blooms, I am in still and empty rooms.
I am the child that yearns to sing, I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there I did not die.

Lux aeterna luceat eis.
Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine." ~Howard Goodall

Welcome my photo blog and thank you for visiting. I always welcome your comments about my images and will reply as I can.

"Right now it’s the moments that matter, whether I have a camera or not. I’m collecting moments because it’s truly all we have in life – moments with loved ones, moments of peace, or struggle, or personal challenge. Life is lived in the moment, not the past or the future."
