I really miss those colorful leaves. :(

. . . .

:) Just a little drawing I did the other day (It's not that little, but I wasn't sure what else to call it. :} )

She's, ah, wounded or something, and he's taking her...I'd say to the doctor, but I doubt you'd buy that, he's taking her to get bandaged up by the local bandager.

She was fun to draw. :)


I painted this and then I realized it looked just like Lake Superior! Well, at least it looks like Lake Superior did on the day we visited it. :)

There be more to come.


. . . .

Out of all my many paintings that I have done, if I had to pick one to be my favorite, it would be this one. :)

(It looks better in person: the lighting was not ideal when I took the picture.) (I painted it sometime in June.)



I have many, many favorite passages in the Lord of the Rings, but this one is by far my very uttermost favorite of them all.

"The land seemed full of creaking and cracking and sly noises, but there was no sound of voice of foot. Far above the Ephel Duath in the West the night-sky was still dim and pale. There, peeping above the cloud-wrack above a dark tor high in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end, the Shadow was only a small passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond it's reach."

I don't think I have to explain why.

Winter! :)


My beautiful "By Castle and River" s 300th post!

I so love this blog! I don't have anything overly special to do, just this really awesome pic I took in the woods the other day. :)



:) It's kinda dull colored, but I still think it's beautiful.

It was really very beautiful that day. The sun was shining and the leaves were perfect. :)

Summer. :)


I do like the way the sun is shining on the yellow leaves. :D

"The world needs love and kindness, I feel that and I know that. When I imagine the big masses of negative emotions that people create every day, I feel ashamed for this. Our beautiful world was created for happiness. People should create their own happiness and warm everything around with it. They have enough power for that, but they don't believe. It's bad. There are also people who can prove with their life that people see what they want to see. Think of the sun and you'll see the sun even in a rainy day. It can come and scratch it's rays to your face to make you smile... Do you believe that thoughts are alive and material? Have you ever thought about this? You can change your life if you believe."

This is something that one of my friends said to me. It was really to beautiful and thought-provoking not to share. Read it closely and think about it.
