thursday’s musings…

“Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, “stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, “It’s simple”, they say,
“and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine”

~ Mary Oliver, When I Am Among the Trees ~

tuesday’s musing…

Fall decor and Halloween Candy already in shops and It’s only August 1st. Why do we feel the need to rush our time forward? Do we really need to think about Halloween and Fall now? Yes, I know it’s a marketing ploy to spend more money, but we need to feel peace and pay attention to where we are now. Be in this moment, this day, without wondering what costume to buy. Lets just stop and smell the ocean air mingled with sunscreen and cotton candy, the freshly mowed lawns and garden flowers on this beautiful Summer day.

monday’s musing…

This flower, the Lantana, is one of my new favorites to plant..
the grapefruit like fragrance is intoxicating and their colors are beautiful..
I may have to go to the garden center to get more 🙂

friday’s musing…

Can’t seem to come out of this fog. I feel like I could sleep an eternity but having slept so much yesterday and last night I really don’t want to miss out on daytime and all that it brings. Light, warmth, bird sings, doing small chores trying to write, draw and read. Anything to feel like I’m living. This tiredness is like a heavy blanket that covers me. I can’t shrug it off. All I want to do is bury myself in it. For now though I’ll just be. On my screen in porch with the birds and morning light.

wednesday’s musings..

I breathe it in..
to know I am ok.
I am enough.
Peacefulness replaces anxiety.
If only for this moment.

special monday musing…

26 years ago today this beautiful (inside and out) human was born..
she stole my heart then and still has it today.
To say I’m proud of all she has done and gone through would be an understatement..
