Twilight at Railroad Park

Twilight is a special time of day. It’s a time when unique colors present themselves. The buildings’ windows give us a preview.

Here’s what was going on behind me:

Whoo Hoo! What beautiful, huge, colors :)

If you click on each of the pictures to enlarge them, there is more color to appreciate :)

Winter window reflections

Looking through a front window of the special events hall at Avondale Villa in east Birmingham. The Villa sits high on a hill behind Avondale Park.

You know, the week between Christmas and New Year’s is usually considered a time of reflection and determining goals for the new year.

For me,  that’s just not enough time :)  I’m still pondering, contemplating, and, yes, reflecting…….literally and figuratively.

Looking at the photo above, I wonder……do we see more clearly in reflection or in direct observance?  My guess is there are benefits to both :)

And so I continue my musing….

BTW Did you know that today is Friday, the 13th day of January? I’m not superstitious, but…..be careful :)
