Nurturing compost for the roots, constantly, continually, eternally regenerating Life.

please offer a positive reflection on our bleak times if you can
Well, Joseph, in a meaningful way, I think paying attention to Nature, appreciating the Beauty, as I do with the photos, is the most positive reflection I can offer right now. Seeking the good and doing the best we can, seems the way to handle the hardest times. Stay safe, be well.
