It’s been pointed out to be way more than once that I find beauty in strange places and this is no exception. I looked beyond the decrepit and see lines, shapes, textures. Always textures. This happens to be right next to a rail line for the MBTA here in Gloucester. I’ve always viewed it from a kayak and this time I trudged through the snow and onto the rocks for an up close look at this beautiful landscape.
I have the Valentines Day fever! Took me by surprise, really. And yet, here I find myself, writing up cards and cutting out hearts, for my two Valentines: Sprocket the dog and my soon to be husband, Chris. Enjoy your day- might I suggest going outside? Especially if you live in a beach town- the waves were gorgeous this morning.
I know that this picture has been taken billions of time but as the scenery never fails to take my breath away, here’s another one. Gorgeous, isn’t it?

My wonderful fiance not only let me open this gift early (after much needling and begging on my behalf), he thoughtfully bought it for me. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some serious sketchbooking to do.
