Smiling Donkey


Lulu, who has been so grumpy lately, seemed to delight in this morning’s snow.

There’s something peaceful about the kind of snow that fell overnight. It blurs the sharp edges and straight lines, it softens sounds.  It lays on the trees, gently merging the land and sky at the horizon into one.

Maybe that’s what Lulu was feeling.  She even shared hay with the sheep at the feeder instead of chasing them away.

If you enjoy seeing the photos and reading my blog, you can easily support it by clicking here or on the Support My Blog buttons at the top and bottom of the page.

I spend more and more time taking photos and writing on my blog as a part of my art.

And while I can sell the work I make in my studio, (thank you to everyone who buys my art) I don’t sell the pictures, videos and writing on my blog.  But it does take considerable time and effort to create.  So I always appreciate any donations one time or monthly, that I receive.

Even if you don’t have a paypal account you can use a credit card on Paypal and you can also send donations to me at PO Box 205 Cambridge NY 12816.

Thank you to everyone who has already donated to my blog and to all of you who will.

  1. Love donating to your blog. I miss my farm, animals and country life. Your photos and writing make me feel good 🙂 I love how your photos show the unique spirits of the animals and trees you care for. I truly belief the animals reveal themselves to your camera and spirit. You capture the photos because of your love and respect for them. Thank you Maria.

    1. That’s a really beautiful thing to hear Janet. I don’t actually know that I’m doing that, capturing the animals in that way, I just find the photos that show the way I see them. But then I guess that’s what you’re saying! Thank you so much for donating to my blog. If I’m ever without my animals I know I’d look for a way, perhaps a through a blog to see others.

  2. Maria, I wish you a warm and loving Valentine’s Day. I’m glad you are feeling better. Normalcy is an oft overlooked yet peaceful place to be. What a beautiful snowfall you had overnight. All the snow has skipped us this year, so I have to enjoy everyone else’s snowfalls!
