=) SURPRISE! (=

Happy Saturday!  In case you are surprised to see a Gem today, please visit our new page ÉOWYN.  Every day for four weeks, from October 14 to November 10, we’ll be creating new pages for the journey from Bag End to Rivendell made by Frodo and companions in J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved trilogy, The Lord of the Rings.  For the first three of these weeks, this will coincide with a walking challenge, walking through Earth and tracking miles on Middle Earth, being hosted on Kindspring.org from October 14 to November 3.  All welcome.   This began in on under1000skies in September 2015 and was meant to be at least a yearly event but life got in the way as it does sometimes.  Once this current journey and all the milestones are finished, we’ll do this at least once a year until all 18 walks through Middle Earth (17 official and one I’m winging completely) are finished.

Photo by Niki Flow

“In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.”
― Robert Lynd

I took this photo yesterday from my car while waiting for my son.  I caught both the bird and the plane (the tiny dot above the bird) without realizing it.  The sky is endlessly changing and beautiful to me.

Photo, “Archangel Boomerang” by Niki Flow

“An angel has no memory.”  -Terry Southern

This photo was taken from inside my car while speeding down the highway as a storm gathered. (I wasn’t driving.) When I saw the photo on my computer, I thought it looked like an Archangel facing down, wings folded around him, his right hand holding a boomerang back behind his head, ready to throw.

You know, I hope Terry Southern was wrong; or, that the boomerang is one of those squishy Nerf kinds.
