Yin and Yang


Our world, like your world,
 is full of yin and yang moments...
the late summer into autumn~~~warmth and sunshine


to Winter's....cold, freezing, biting, yet brilliant vistas
~~~


Green, alive, lush and supple turf


vs dried, brittle, barren, and austere dune meadow
~~~


Warm spectrum colours~~~red, rust, golden verdants


vs cold spectrum colours~~~blue, grey, ice waters
~~~


All in all we feel blessed as we drive home from our
city sojourns whether at the park or 
needing our Starbuck's.


We appreciate our environment and throw ourselves
into our world.....experiencing everything it has to offer.


and with this 
hot ~ cold
yin ~ yang
up ~ down
 feminine ~ masculine
angle I have chosen today
I know that SnoozeVille is always waiting for me
in the backseat of the car.

  3. Our world is doing the same thing. Right now we have the windows open, but I know that in a few hours it'll change and we'll need blankets and another dog on the bed to keep us warm while we sleep!

  6. What a beautiful post! The winter pictures at the beach were powerful - you can feel the wind and the spray and appreciate the wild beauty. You earned your time in SnoozeVille after that outing.

    1. Yes our world is 4 distinct seasons and we are so blessed to be able to experience the 'hot~~~and ~~~cold' with everything in between. You are so right re: verywarmsoftwoolsweaters~~~~~we wear them automatically.....we love to knit so we make sweaters and scarves....our world is very changeable....every day is different...so you have to be ready for change....I think that's why we are so accepting of change and difference!!!!
      Ciao....Bellas!

  18. Hi Sophie!
    you have snow too?? We got some yesterday....the pictures with your Dad at the storming beach are wonderful.

    1. Actually...this is a yin and yang montage of the hot/cold, warm/cool, hot/crispycold, etc......the snow has not come here yet.....the cold winter pictures were taken 2 years ago and my Daddy Ron decided to remind people of what our climate was like, so you and everyone can appreciate your world and ours. We all live our lives in different worlds and my cyber-doodle blog hopefully helps you experience just a wee bit of difference...something that makes the world go-round!

  19. Dear Sophie,

    Thank you for explaining that there is not real snow yet, because I was beginning to get too excited. I LOVE SNOW!!! I hope it comes soon, although my person says probably not. We don't get very much snow here.

    My person says that your photos are beautiful, especially the snowy beach ones. I think it looks a little cold myself, but any day at the beach or in the snow is a good day!

    Licks,
    Cobi
