Your post made me realize that the sunshine and shadows (of our lives) are connected – all is one! ❤
Lovely photo, matched with wonderful words. Happy New Year to you and yours.
And to you and yours Libby!
The contrast of darkness and light makes for a lovely shot. Did you know there is a ghostly mist above the gate? Is it a bit of fog on the lens?
I think it’s the ghost of Christmas Past, departing stage right. 🙂
It’s actually fog rising up from the snow bank. There was quite a bit of it but only this one patch was captured. Shoreacres commented it was the ghost of Christmas past departing. I think it just might be!
Happy New Year!
I love “the shadows came and had their say”.
Speaking of ghosts lurking around, is that the ghost of T.S. Eliot I see in your title? The first thing that came to mind was section V of “Little Gidding”:
“What we call the beginning is often the end
And to make and end is to make a beginning.
The end is where we start from.”
The end of an old year is the start of a new — here we go!
Wonderful winter view.
Very special this one ! Happy new year 🙂
Happy New Year Catherine. I pray that yours is truly blessed! 🙂 ❤
The gate! It’s my way into 2017! Thank you for so many inspirations. 🙂
Once again those before me have said just what I was thinking. You bring light and joy into our worlds. Happy New Year today and every day!
