Two minutes of beauty — in February, in Yosemite, if if if

Horsetail Falls in Yosemite at a February sunset

Good Morning, God!

I’m off to Maui this morning to see Lavender Fields and Goat Farms and  . . . But, Maui, itself, is more than enough. I thought about posting photos of lavender . . . but I want to show my photos of lavender.

Besides, God, my eye was caught by a small color photo in the newspaper yesterday. It was part of a story on how for just two weeks in February the sun comes from such an angle that it turns the Horsetail Falls in Yosemite into sunset colors. Two weeks a year! And that is IF there is enough water in the falls and IF the sky isn’t cloudy or rainy.

I watched a video of photographers standing around in the cold — and it IS cold in Yosemite in February — peering up at the falls coming down El Capitan. Waiting to see IF they could see it turn color. Ah, but, I would love to be there, cold and all.

Of course, that DOES take a lot of preplanning. And that means looking ahead. It means scheduling and sequencing and arranging things. Hmm. The fact that these activities do not come naturally to me probably means I need to devote a little more time and effort to them. It is just that — when there IS someone gifted, someone who enjoys doing it — the temptation to thank them and get out of their way is overwhelming!

Still, God, I feel Your nudge. The Calendar / Timeline Parts of my brain ARE my responsibility. Dang! How ever did I get into yet another self-development project? No wonder I chose BUSY all these years!

But, thank YOU. I did go and check my calendar and discovered a conflict that I need to let two friends know about. Embarrassing! But, thank You, God!
