A lake has many moods, many residents as well as those just passing through. Klamath Lake is a rich ecosystem which makes a person feel rich just being there. It is its own little paradise providing bountifully for many insects, fish, mammals, reptiles, and birds. We were especially fortunate to see it with a full moon and in two impressive thunderstorms.
Because of how much and how diverse it was for the photos, I am breaking them up. First are some of Klamath Lake's moods while I was there. Tomorrow will come one of the most interesting dragonfly photos I have ever gotten and finally another opportunity for painting at a river that runs into Klamath Lake.
Oregon writer, Rain Trueax, and Oregon painter, Diane, co-author Rainy Day Thought, where they write about experiences, ideas, nature, creativity, and culture. The latter might appear at times political, but we will try to avoid partisanship to speak to the broader issues that impact a culture. This is just too important a time not to sometimes speak to problems that impact society. As she and I do, readers will find we often disagree and have for over 50 years-- still able to be close friends. You can do that if you can be agreeable that we share more than not despite the difference.
Diane posts on Wednesdays and Rain on Saturdays. There may be extra days or changes as situations warrant. Comments, relating to the topic, are welcome as it turns an article into a discussion, but must be in English, with no profanity, hate-filled comments, or links (unless pre-approved).
Fantasy, the painting by Diane Widler Wenzel, cropped a little to fit the needs of a banner.
