Norwood Health Center is a mental health facility in Wisconsin.
It can trace it’s beginnings back to 1910 when it started as Wood County Insane Asylum
By 1930 it had well over 200 patients with a variety of disabilities.
They were self sufficient and ran a very large farm with over 1000 acres.
The first superintendent of the facility was L.E. Gilson , he was a very intelligent and caring man. He treated all the patients as if they were his sons and daughters.
Once the main facility was built to house all the patients Mr. Gilson drew up the plans and had all the other buildings on the farm built by himself and the patients.
People told him this was not possible because the patients lacked the brains to do it, but he told them that was his problem and...
The twilight hours of morning and night have always been what I consider the magical hours.
Photographers and outdoor people enjoy it for it's mystical colors it can display. The colors are mostly produced by bounce light off of the clouds and atmosphere.
It is a very peaceful and magical time. In as little as an hour the world changes from day to night, or from night to day.
Have you ever just sat in the woods at twilight? If the wind was blowing all day chances are now it will calm itself. The animals that run around all day start to go and hide. The night time animals start to come out and make their appearance. It's no longer day, and it's not quite night, it's somewhere in between. It's the magic hour.
The only thing I like better than watching animals in the wild is being able to capture them in a photo.
We have been observing animals for as long as we have been on earth.
The observation of wild animals is not only a thing of beauty but also a tool for survival. Even today we have to be careful because there are indeed animals that can hurt or kill us under the right circumstances.
As we observed them we also learned from them.
There is as much a reason that birds fly in a vee pattern as there is that a basic military formation for planes is a vee pattern.
The other trait they have in common is that they are both neat to capture in a photo.
Please allow me to take this time to wish all of the people serving our country a merry Christmas.
Thank you for all that you sacrifice, and all you deal with.
I hope and pray for all of you to have a merry christmas and a safe return.
