While hiking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, this looked like an average tree from one angle; but after taking a few steps, I looked up and saw this. Amazing what a change in perspective can reveal.


Walking our dog, Libby, on the beach one autumn afternoon,
my husband, Bob, and I happened upon this seeming miracle.


During a severe winter ice storm at our home in Maine, which left us without power for several days,
our 21-year-old cat, Pesky, found warmth by the fireplace.
