THE 'NAKED' TRUTH

~ Bare and beautiful
_____________

“Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against the sky,
how beautiful it is?
All its branches are outlined,
and in its nakedness there is a poem,
Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring.
When the spring comes it again fills the tree
with the music of many leaves,
which in due season fall and are blown away.
And that is the way of life.”

Lovely post, Joey, it's good to remind ourselves what the way of life is. Just what I needed on a rather harried day.

Hi Joey, this week was another hectic one, so I’m sorry to have been a bit absent from here. Anyhow TGIF, so I managed to drop by to see some wonderful pictures. Loved the Green (though blue is my favourite...) and this amazing Naked Truth. But I was overwhelmed with the cheesecake. May I get a free one; I'm not sure I manage to make a decent one and I adore it! And with Bailey's... ;))
Hope you enjoy Oia and its fabulous sunset at Blogtrotter as much as I enjoy your posts!
Have a great weekend!
Gil

I'm a tree hugger also, Carolyn, one of my favorite subjects to photograph.

Hi jodi ... as I wait (somewhat) patiently for spring, I must remind myself of 'the circle of life'. I saw green noses popping threw a few bare holes in the snow. Hold tight ... spring is on its way!

I'll save you a piece, Gil and if its gone by the time you get here, I trust you can make this easy cheesecake yourself. (Enjoy eating it ~ you look fit in those awesome Oia photos)
