That’s So 2020 – Seeing Red

All photos taken October 19, 2020

It has been pretty gloomy around here since our return from Jasper. After a glorious end to September and beginning to October, the weather took a decided downturn and turned cold and cloudy. We all saw it coming, but that did not mean we had to like it. On returning from a short trip to get groceries on October 18/20, there was a rare moment of bright sunshine. As I was putting the car in the garage, my photographers eye caught the rays of October sun, glowing through the few Amur Maple leaves remaining on my lawn.

By the time I got the camera and came back outside, the gloom had returned, but, later, when the sun did reappear, I managed to snap these shots.

Once alive, now all but dead,

glowing with bright colour red,

laying there, all discarded,

in sunlight, quite half hearted.

Poor drab grey Amur Maple.

I’d reattach, if able.

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.
