Angels Today



I took this photo at sunset this past November as I was returning to the house to check on the slow cooker in the kitchen.  These were little midges (tiny flies) dancing their last dance of fall celebration in the warm evening light before cold winter's arrival.  They were not aware that the world was tilting and the sun's angle was changing and the air was slowly cooling.  Or if they were aware, they were clearly focused on the happiness in this moment of dancing in the golden light.  They look like holiday angels to me now, and so I will post this, such an unexpected photo, at this holiday time of year to remind us to focus on the moment and not what lies ahead or behind.  If there is such a thing as Holy Light...these photos have come close to capturing it for me.

Dear Tabor,

Oh how I've missed you! Blogging isn't fun without Barry and I am having a difficult time getting back into it. I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas. I love your angel light pictures with midges. Lindsay, the girls and I are good. We were all together at Kathy's for Christmas. I've been hanging out on facebook. I am going to try blogging again.
Love, Linda

Such remarkable photos! I don't know that I've ever seen midges but you're right...they do look like little angels.

Congratulations on your POTW mention!
