Dark Purple Sky

“A dark purple sky filled with the first few evening stars made her feel small. She smiled; that was what she expected from the sky.  All her life, she’d gone out at night and stood beneath that blue velvet darkness.  It was her temple, the true house of God, and it never failed to remind her of her place.”

~ Kristin Hannah, Angel Falls


The view from my cabin porch.  It has become the place where I go to renew my spirit — my place.   I loved Kristin Hannah’s description of such a place and hope others find such a place for themselves as well.

Do you see the slight sliver of the moon?

My name is Mara. I am Minnesota born and raised. Four seasons, forests, farms, and 10,000 lakes have given me a deep appreciation for nature. Photography helps me to share this love with others. And, once in awhile, I find myself interested in sociology. Go figure.
