Seedheads - Missoula, Montana

"It always amazes me to look at the little, wrinkled brown seeds and think of the rainbows in 'em," said Captain Jim. "When I ponder on them seeds I don't find it nowise hard to believe that we've got souls that'll live in other worlds. You couldn't hardly believe there was life in them tiny things, some no bigger than grains of dust, let alone colour and scent, if you hadn't seen the miracle, could you?” - LM. Montgomery, Anne's House of Dreams

Toppled - Missoula, Montana

Monday night's crazy storm in the Missoula and Bitterroot valleys left a lot of cattywampus in its wake, toppling aged trees and power lines. I'm still pondering how it is that the neighbors across the street had essentially uninterrupted power while our side of the street had no power from about 7:00 PM Monday night through well into Tuesday. Ah, well - here's to thankfulness that we still had running water and we don't live in tornado country!

"The beginnings and ends of shadow lie between the light and darkness and may be infinitely diminished and infinitely increased. Shadow is the means by which bodies display their form. The forms of bodies could not be understood in detail but for shadow." - Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)
