The Road To That Creek

"Notice the people who are happy for your happiness, and sad for your sadness. They’re the ones who deserve special places in your heart." ~ Author Unknown
I'm talking about you! All of you kind souls who have been with me through the good times and the arduous times.
You remain in my heart. I know I am the lucky one.
 
This is Kate. I call her Creek Kate. Her other name is Friendy. We've been friends for a very long time. She's an artist, a free and gentle spirit, an unpretentious yoga guru and my partner in crime.

    1. Oh, the world we live in, Janet!
      It's so nice to share it with someone, sometimes.
      I'm normally wanting to venture out by myself, but if I was to go with another, Kate is easy to be with.
      You and I are gearing up for some real spring like weather here shortly!! Can ya hardly wait?! Me either. :)
      Thanks for stopping by as always.

  13. What a treasure to have a such a soul sister! Their company is a pleasure in good times, but it's when things are hard that their importance really matters.

    That landscape, and your photos, are absolutely stunning. You capture the story perfectly!

  15. I think you nailed it Lynn, and you know I've been doing a lot of deleting... negative things and people... people who are just filling... to find that deep bond in another person, especially another woman, one you know cares for you in your saddest and your happiest, one who is truly proud of you in your moments of glory... that is such a beautiful thing.
