Most of my themes cannot be expressed with one image,
for the reason that often words have more than one meaning,
as well as more than one association attached to it.
I like my blog to be more than “one tone.”
One essential of life has to do with the following.
In my way of life, “being funny” is not a virtue.
Some comedians may think their skill is an asset.
Yet, being funny is just one moment of attention.
Being joyful can be a way of life.
Joy is a word with many, many meanings and associations.
Focusing on the joy of watching how the mountains take on
muted tones in “winter” (it’s not a real winter in California,
except for the very North part) makes the Grapevine less stressful.
Every motorist breathes a sigh of relief when having passed
a stretch of 40 miles, with steep ascents and descents,
between Los Angeles and Mid-California.
Treacherous in the summer with cars overheating or slick surface i
in winter, and even more
when people zig-zag in between cars and trucks.
They make it very dangerous for the rest of us.
A winter essential in my neighborhood. What you see
is not a cloud behind the chimney,
but the smoke of the wood stove burning and rising right now.
This photo is from last year, since
I don’t have Christmas lights up yet.
When driving by, it’s interesting to smell the differences
of wood neighbors burn. The pine tree is at least 60 feet.
Sun Tree, Makro-Tex: signs of winter
It is an essential for me personally to experiment!
The collage are not images next to each other with a border
in between, but on top of each other, without borders:)
Color inside is a winter essential. This blooming cactus is
one of them, even though they often bloom
later or earlier than Christmas!
In cases of a coffee-need attack, I keep this in my purse:)

Thanksgiving has passed only half a week , and all I can recall
is that we have been eating holiday food for at least 3days instead of one!
What about you?
At last, from Tuesday on it has been raining here –
giving thanks for this blessing,
so the fire fighters have a break!
Thanks to All the hosts!
