Not Doing the Barnyard Dance!

A barnyard dance?

Most likely while everyone else is doing their thing, I’m the one at the well wishing for the nerve to do mine.

I’m not one to do-se-do across the barn floor.

Nor am I one to strut my stuff all over the barnyard.

I’d rather watch, listen, and take it all in.

I adore the look of weathered, splintered barns.

Throw in some red, and I’m smitten.

I don’t need a weather vane to tell me when and from which direction my winds are blowing.

From gentle breeze to gale force, my heart measures all.

Though I wasn’t born to be the dancer, maybe being the music is just as good.

  1. Your photography skills are definitely on a steep upward curve. I’ve always liked your photos, but you’re toeing the line recently between stuff you see from good amateurs and the stuff my professional photographer friends put out. Way cool!

  2. SuziCate….I always LOVE your pictorial narratives because you have a such a magical way of weaving insightful wisdom through your glorious photographs!

    “I don’t need a weather vane to tell me when and from which direction my winds are blowing.”

    I can so indentify with that. Me too!

    STUNNING photos, my friend! The color and texture is amazing!

    You GO, girl!

    Have a wonderul Monday…..X

  3. I can see you in the golden light of the day and the silver light of the night, dressed in the sparkling colors you love, all alone, bowing to the well, and then to the sun or the moon and stars, and do-si-dohing around the well, leaping gracefully across the lawn, threading your way through the gorgeous ancient buildings. You keep in the rhythm of the universe, soul-loving and conscious free, remembering who you are and who you want to be.

    And, as Paula is fond of saying…it is enough.

  4. Love the red color. Those old barns and buildings have so much personality. All over the country, they are unique structures that fit the character of the person who built them. Definitely not like the generic, cookie cutter barns of today. I think we are losing a big part of our culture as these old buildings are left to deteriorate and collapse. There are so many old family farms disappearing into the woods and soils of Minnesota.
