Photo Friday – An April Afternoon

A quiet afternoon in April, my time my own to fill as I desire, I step outside on the deck, listen to the sweet sound of silence, breathe deeply, and drink in the view.

I first moved to Kamloops when I was eighteen-years-old and, except for the past seven years we spent in Washington state, this city has been my home.

I had no idea it was also home to birds like this. It’s funny what you see when you slow down enough to pay attention.

What a joy it is to have the gift of time to slow down and get to know our new neighbours. I am blessed.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Such lovely photos, my friend. What a wonderful place to enjoy life!

    1. How nice to hear from you, Kim! So excited to learn you’re working on a new book. Loved Liar’s Bench!

  2. Linda, what a view! And such beautiful birds. I love your photo Fridays. And it is wonderful to make online friends who, when they retire and move away, are still nearby. 🙂

    1. It is, indeed, a blessing to have the ability to make virtual friends who are kindred spirits, Sherrey.
