Some Sylva Shots

The sun was about to rise when I pulled out of our driveway yesterday morning at about a quarter of seven and, through mountain magic, it was about to rise as, an hour and a half later, I parked my car to walk to the site of the book fair. (During my drive I saw at least four more sunrises that, what with highway traffic and a plethora of power lines, I was unable to photograph. They were all beautiful -- trust me.)

Here's a web album of random shots from yesterday -- today's another busy one with a lunch party for the new grandnephew and his parents. I'll talk about the book fair and the panel I was on another day.

Vicki, that "mountain magic" is one of my favorite things about living in the mountains.

As always, beautiful photos!

As I mentioned previously, sometimes the world seems entirely composed of power lines and other obstructions. The first photograph in this post could be a poster for a 'road' movie.

Enjoy lunch!

Hi Vicki, so sorry I couldn't spend more time with you yesterday. AND I discovered I hadn't brought new batteries for my dig. camera, so no photos from me. I wrote poems for a lot of dogs--St. Bernard, Corgis, mutts (the majority), babies, and little girls. It was fun. I'll be posting about that later.

Love the mountain magic. Our mornings almost begin with fog. Hope you're having a great weekend.

So sorry I missed the Book Fair. I got a GI virus and spent most of the night sitting in a recliner and reading. Oh, what was I reading? OLD WOUNDS. I'm hooked on your great series. Ay lawdy, you can tell a story!!! I tried to pace myself, but I just can't put your stories down.

I couldn't believe all the sunrises! It seemed to be dodging around and peeping over the ridges at every turn.

It was great to see you, however briefly, Kay! I love the idea of your writing poems on demand and will look for your post.

Quel bummer, Mountainwoman! But I'm glad Elizabeth could entertain you in your time of trial.

Hi, Eliane -- Condolences would be the word. I was expressing condolences on the temporary loss of your laptop. But I see you're managing! Congratulations!
