A perfect day – cool, blue sky, no deadlines… only spaciousness, timelessness, and serenity.
So we embarked on a Sunday drive to nearby Pocahontas County (West Virginia), down to the Greenbrier River. Today, the river water reflected bridge pillars and a pale blue band from the top of the bridge – a play of textures and colors punctuated by dried up grasses.
It didn’t take long before we noticed the water fowl that gather in the area, mostly mallard ducks.
The male mallard has an iridescent green head, a brown chest and mostly grey wings and belly while the female has mainly brown-speckled plumage.
On the other side of the bridge, in deep shade, a large flock of mallards and a lone Canada goose were peacefully paddling around, perhaps quieting down for day’s end.
The days are getting very short now and the lengthening darkness invites quiet reflection and inward focus. May this coming winter be one of serenity and peacefulness.
