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 🙂

monday morning….

camera in hand
trying to capture moments
of the many shades of early summer.
to feel
the lushness that is now.
to show
tightly closed buds.
before they open
revealing soft petals of velvet,
displaying their inner brilliance.

spring, finally …

It was such a spring day as breathes into a man an ineffable yearning,
a painful sweetness,
a longing that makes him stand motionless,
looking at the leaves or grass,
and fling out his arms to embrace he knows not what.”

~ John Galsworthy ~

the storm…

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive.
You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over.
But one thing is certain.
When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in.
That’s what this storm’s all about.”

~ Haruki Murakami ~

simple…

“Around us, life bursts with miracles–a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings. When we are tired and feel discouraged by life’s daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.”

~Thich Nhat Hanh ~

apples to apples…

i’ve been keeping an extremely low internet profile as of late. lingering and new health issues have caused me to want to retreat and keep to myself while i find ways to cope with everything going on.

i hope to find the way again to take more photos and write more on here.

here are some images from one of my good days. went apple picking a couple of weeks ago with my sis and the kids.

peace and happy autumn to everyone
