Reflections on an Icy Pond

{Horn Pond, Woburn, MA}

Honor the space between no longer and not yet."
Nancy Levin

I love this pond.
For all that it has shown and given to me these past few years.
I love these images...
the space between frozen and melted...
the space between daylight and darkness...
between yesterday and today.
My hours around this pond have filled me with images of the
"in between"...
...of the life that happens between seasons.
Images of how fluid this life-journey of ours really is.

Since we found out that we were moving,
the thought of being further away from this place is, by far, the hardest.
Whatever comes, I will honor this in between time.
And continue to cherish this space.

  6. I love that first shot, the way the light is catching in the interesting ice formations.

  7. Such beautiful images… so often we are "in between" and don't realize it, then we miss the magnificence of what is.

  8. A fabulous atmospheric shot with great reflections. Have a lovely weekend.

  9. Gorgeous! I love the ice formations on the first photo.

  10. That top image is stunning, the light, the tones etc...just beautiful


  11. Two very beautiful shots! I love both for different reasons.

  12. Cold but beautiful! We live on a lake and I know whenever we move, it will be hard to find something comparable.

  13. I totally understand this. Of the many joys here, I still miss the oak tree at the end of the block...probably always will.
