Magic (Do You Believe In?)

It has been a beastly winter after the coolest, cloudiest summer ever.
Well I came across this ice seepage and as I took the picture I thought…
Even in the last gasp of life and going into the throws of death the beast sneers back.
I want to mock it but I know one day it will return and win the day,
 so I fear to do so.

So I moved on and let it go, looking for other visual prospects.

By and by I came across something different, very different,

in fact magical I thought,

as I tried to capture it with multiple shots in the rare evening light.

When winter loosens it’s grip the first sign at latitude 61 is

the water cascading over cliffs and returning to the sea, a short trip in these parts.

An old favorite song from way back when things seemed simpler from my perspective,

but history tells us the late sixties were a turbulent time, retrospect is like rare light.

I guess I was sheltered in the spring of my youth.

Nice to be where you can see the magic from another perspective I think now.

    That second pic is a knockout. Yes, I believe in magic. Around here you really have to look hard for it. Well, unless you are staring out over the ocean. That is always magic.
