Inhale Exhale


 wispy and lingering
clouds hover around mountain tops
as though a breath exhaled by the masters
inhaled by our eyes
dispersed in our bodies
exhaled through our pores
essence of life
shared by all

  2. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!! Tammie!!! You are so blessed! Look at the beauty surrounding you. But I feel cold. I think I will pour myself another cup of coffee. I thought about you last night and how much I love your photography. I just did. It was after 2 in the morning too. I woke up and thought about the icicles you photographed. YES! Keep warm, lots of TSUP!!!

  8. Oh, my, Tammie! I cannot pick a favorite photo - all make me want to inhale/exhale! Through your lens and words, it is possible to experience the "essence of life." PS Snowing so hard again. We have more snow than I've experienced in my 21 years here. It's wonderful for us winter sports enthusiasts!
