I have a need ... for green

About 32 of the last 40 days have been cloudy here. And the last three weeks have seen temperatures well above the average for this time of year. Translation: No snow. Just gray skies and brown ground. Not even going outside and tossing a toilet seat can cure the Seasonal Affective Disorder I'm feeling.

I had a yearning to see some greenery, so I went back into my photo files and found this photo, taken in Tennessee in July. The ability to remember better days is a good thing. We're blessed with the ability to conjure up the past within our minds (photos can help). It brings hope for better days ahead.

And it beats tossing a toilet seat.

Your blog and photos are excellent. I love TN as I lived there for more than 3 years during seminary . . . .

Glenn, thanks for the kind words. What part of TN did you live in?
