To say this has been a weird year would be a woeful understatement.
I keep thinking that some good news has to be just around the corner...
...here we are at the beginning of December with little hope of any return to the way things were, perhaps forever. While I know there is definitely some sort of silver lining somewhere, and I should surely be able to find it, as well as share it with you...it seems ever elusive at this particular moment.
So, know that the sun still rises, there is still beauty in the world...and surely there is some sort of hope out there, even if we don't quite see it yet.
And, with that in mind, here are a bunch of pictures from the hill that have been lanquishing in my photo file. I hope they will brighten your day and grant you some sort of hope and encouragement.
