Just call me the mushroom queen; well, not really, because I know nothing about wild mushrooms except that they are bountiful in the forest and along my walkway, and I am compelled to record them like these beauties:

3 little ladies in their scalloped lace petticoats

a bold and poisonous toadstool disguised as a jolly clown

an inverted umbrella collecting drops of water

All the photos in this entry were taken on September 13, a beautiful autumn Monday that unfolded in the strange otherworldliness that beautiful autumn days can do.

Despite growing out of bedrock this sturdy Maple continues to grow strong and steady in our backyard casting the wonderful long shadows of an autumn afternoon.  This picture doesn't show it, but it must be 40 feet high!  And what an ominous slant.... yet, still it holds firm.

Later that night we went out for a bite to eat and saw this amazing sunset across the parking lot that cast its red light across the lower clouds picking them out across a vast expanse.  Such are the gifts I received that day.

Let us be open
to what is good and right in our lives,
 that is bigger than us and our cares
 and release ourselves
 to the greater plan.
