March Marching On - Missoula, Montana

March in Montana means daffodils strive impatiently to bloom
 while humans still need a toque on lunchtime walks. 

(Well, at least those of us with Tinkerbell haircuts casting faerie ears out into the blustery March winds.)

Hope Blooms - Missoula, Montana

"Black and white are the colors of photography. 
To me they symbolize the alternatives
 of hope and despair
 to which mankind is forever subjected."

Beautiful Frailty - Missoula, Montana

"He did not want to be whitewashed or excused....Whitewash brought no comfort.
The real comfort was to have one's sins and weaknesses not explained away but understood and shared.
...It struck him that it can be as much by our weakness as by our virtue that we can serve each other."

-from The Rosemary Tree by Elizabeth Goudge (1900-1984), page 337
