The photographic show, Emerging Artists, at Emerald Art Center on Friday evening was really fun and well attended. I think I talked more in that one evening than I do total in a month. While fun it was tiring both physically – on my feet for 3 hours – and being ‘on’ is always an energy drain for us introverts. I know that many people charge their batteries being active in groups like that but not me. It is an energy drain and while I love doing it and being out there I recognize that in order to recover and recharge I need some time alone and in nature. Such was the case last night. The rain quit for a few days and while a spectacular sunset was not in the offing there did develop a soft almost pastel gentle evening. I had the place to myself save for some rather large and noisy skeins of geese.
I watched this image develop over about 30 minutes until the sun sank into the far cloud bank – time to pack up and head for home – batteries recharged.
