151/365-2 A Vision of Quiet

 "In the Garden"

We had a very quiet day today.  Brooke is our of town at the wedding of one of her college roommates and we had a relatively free calendar, which turned out to be a good thing because Weber has been sick all week and he slept for almost five hours this afternoon.   Th dogs were perfectly happy to keep him company while he napped, though they did feel compelled to get up a few times to bark at the squirrels in the back yard.

I knit most of the afternoon.  I haven't done that in a long time.

When Weber woke up, we decided to go out to get a simple dinner.  In the process of our decision making, we invited a friend, whose partner is out of town,  to join us.  We had a adequate  dinner and some good conversation.  As we were getting out of the car to head into the restaurant, this is what I saw.

I wish that the light post and power lines were not in the picture.  If I were more skilled (and more patient) with Photoshop I could erase them, but that is the kind of editing that I'm not convinced that  I agree with.  This is the image I saw.  Power lines, unfortunately, are a real part of our world.  I'm not sure it is right, reasonable or valid to deny their existence.

After dinner, we went by the outdoor labyrinth at a nearby church.  It sits in a beautiful garden that is always a good place for peace and quiet.
