A Time For Everything

It was a time for wiping the slate clean. What better way to do it than to disappear? This is Algonquin Park: for me a place of renewal, a place to begin again.

All these images have so much meaning for me, so much symbolism. Exactly what I was looking for.
 I hope these pictures give to you what they have given to me. All you have to do is add the silence of the trees, the "chick" of the chickadees, the rush of the rapids and the smell of the earth.
Enjoy your weekend

close your eyes

breathe the air 

and take your time


  1. I love these pictures.... Autumn is a really cleansing season... it signifies to me "out with the old and in with the new" Your photos are so evocative. Thanks for the reminder to enjoy life, I will take my time this weekend!

  2. Great shots. Glad you gave yourself this gift-and the girls too!

  3. Beautiful post! I will definitely have to breathe this weekend after hosting a family bday party.
    And I love the new artwork you made for your header.

  4. one of my favorite places on earth

  5. Those are very beautiful photos. I especially love the gnarly roots.

    And those are the girls? I'm glad to see them. The one in the top photo has extraordinary colouring. I thought it was a wolf when I saw the photo. What breed? Very beautiful.

  6. She's a husky/sheppard, the little one running to me is a corgi. both are rescued dogs

  7. They are both beautiful and they look so happy. I remember our dog trainer saying to us 'A dog in nature is a happy dog'. So true.

  8. Your photos are breathtaking. Thank you so much for sharing them. Your doggies are beautiful!
