Silver Lining

Well it's an old saying and it usually refers to clouds
although the clouds are not usually the issue.

This "Silver Lining" was near the end of a very long and dark Alaskan winter.
Just along a busy well traveled road,  just a moment of the turn of a head, 
that's where I saw this silver lining.  

After driving by this little creek so many times, remembering the little house 
where the grandmotherly lady once lived and babysat my youngest child,
on this day I had to stop and take some photos.  

Silver Linings is an attitude, a memory, and a reminder that
the light that shines in the distance often reaches out to us 
like an old friend.
