Critters Around East Texas

Afternoon drives around Livingston, Coldspring, and Shepherd, Texas offers the sights and sounds of critters too numerous to list.  Most of them are hiding in the forests, swamps, trees, and rivers.  Here are a few I've seen these past couple of days on and near my mother's farm near Shepherd.

Mid-April Spring Day, Letchworth State Park

Sunshine and "cool warmth" on this mid-April day.  Letchworth State Park, NY was calling out for me! Aside from a few ice falls on the sides of the canyon, scenes of winter have vanished.  Renewal has begun.

Breaking Point


nature's order is defiance.  due 
course vilifies and verifies as 

seasons spar.  random, on the 
surface, belies a narrative played

in timeless motion, a breaking point
replay making the past new again.
