The late-day light was dramatic yesterday when I took the above photo. Click on photo for best viewing. Today, even with the dense morning cloud cover, there is light here at 6:30 a.m. Won't be long until the Spring Equinox.

While moving framed paintings from my storage unit to my home, I accidentally put some deep scratches in the paint of the car of a neighbor who takes great pride in his car. Now I'm looking at having to pay for the damage with the money I would have saved in the coming year by not having a storage unit. Isn't it odd how things happen that way sometimes? Still, I am feeling happy that I can fit all my belongings into my home and won't need a storage unit in the future.

Thank you all for the comments on my last post. This morning I was finally able to respond to them.

Sorry to hear about those scratches on your neighbor's car. That does seem to be the way it goes sometimes.

We were watching that late afternoon sunlight yesterday too. It lit up the yard in such a spectacular way.

Great Carver poem. I don't fish, but I have imagined myself dead.

Carver's poem: I like the apparent simplicity and spontaneity of it. As if dashed off on the spur of the moment - although I doubt very much that it was.
The light in the photograph is lovely.
scratches on the car - in other words, you won't save any money but you won't lose any either. In my accounting that is a balanced check book :-)

its always a balancing act isnt it, save money, then spend it to repair. Lovely light and a good poem too.
