Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Left of Center.....New Challenge and 31 Days of Halloween...Day 22

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge is just about to begin and will run for the coming week. The theme for this week is again it's the perfect place to share all your Halloween makes. As it is a Halloween challenge, I thought it would also be perfect to form another part of my 31 Days Challenge. And this image seemed perfect because it is after all 'near Halloween'. I just loved this image of the pumpkins and the brrom. The image and words are from the fantastic team over at Bugaboo Stamps. They have such an amazing collection of all things Halloween and you will be sure to find something to fit your needs. I hope that you will pop over to the LOC blog and take a look at all the wonderful makes of the rest of the team.

The sun is shining brightly here in the mountains today. I was up early and the frost was still out there and the mist was so low down on the mountains. it is something so magical..the nip in the air and the dragons mist lay low. I really feel blessed living here on days like this. It says something about the weather..all the boys are in and cuddled in their favourite spots while the girls are out and running

I thought that today I would also share another photo of Colin. It was sent to me today and it seemed only right to share it with you.

Isn't he just so handsome. I will share new photos as they come in..then you can share him growing up. it is so lovely to see a ginger and white. Sadly I don't have a ginger any more after losing it will be lovely to watch Colin. I must try and find some pictures of Trevor and Boris..the other cats in this family. People will find it strange but most of my friends and I tend to ask after the animals before we talk about .

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be time to get my head down and get on with some work. I have some wonderful new images to work with and am looking to forward to sharing with you under the next couple of months. I hope that you all have a great weekend. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
