LTTL & Quotography: Red

Red is the ultimate cure for sadness.
~Bill Blass

and hummingbirds….definitely hummingbirds.

I’m finally playing along again with Kelley and Quotography, and Lisa at Life Thru the Lens! Twix went down for a nap and I made the executive decision to grab the camera and go outside…specifically looking for Red.

The calendar says the first day of Autumn is later this week, but the thermometer still says it’s summer here in middle Missouri. Temps are in the upper 80sF with the heat index in the upper 90sF. Not very conducive to Autumn thinking.

The hummers were impressive this year. They buzzed around the feeders all summer and are still going strong. I figure they are beginning to migrate south and are catching a quick bite along the way. So, the feeders will stay up for a while.

I decided to take time the next couple of months for a Women’s Bible Study class on C.S. Lewis. We’re specifically talking about Mere Christianity and The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe. He’s such a favorite of mine, and his story of how he walked away from Christianity and became an atheist…only to be drawn back to faith through logic and reason. Much of his writings make my brain hurt. Did you know “Jack” (as he wanted to be called) was the first Professor of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at the University of Cambridge? That means he must have been an extremely well-read person. Good and bad, fiction or fact…he read them and gained insight, discernment and a respect for differing points of view. I may write more on Jack as the study gets further into the details of his life and writing.

But for now, I’ll just leave you with one of my hummers….just to make you smile.

  1. What a beautiful photograph, Lisa! We had quite a few hummingbirds this year, also. Last year, I remember seeing only 2 or 3, so it was a good year.

    Your class sounds really interesting. Enjoy it!

    Happy day to you, my friend. xo.

  2. AWESOME capture for the color RED!

    Aren’t hummingbirds the most amazing little birds? I think of them almost as little helicopter birds because they can hover just like a helicopter!

    Have a super weekend, Lisa!

  3. Great capture, a nap well spent :-D.

    Ohhh, and study on CS Lewis that does sound intriguing.

    I can say I do not miss the heat of MO. This summer was bliss and our fall has been perfect. BUT, man I miss the color! We mainly get yellow here and I miss the bold colors of MO.

  4. I need to check into C.S. Lewis…sounds interesting. My latest book review for an author was on One Of The Few…a Marine and Iraq War veteran who gives his insight on how he moved from being agnostic/atheist and facts that led his belief in Christianity. I think my hummingbirds have pretty much left the area.

  5. I love the quote and the picture. Hummingbirds are so fascinating and one always feels happy as they watch the little birds darting in for a sip. Red truly brightens up life. I heard once that every room in your house should have a splash of red in it to cheer up the space. I’ve tried to do that and I have come to believe that your little sentiment is true.
