With camera in hand, I went to Reintstein Park. To my astounded eyes, the colors that are showing now, are some of the brightest I think I’ve ever seen! I think from all the rain we had this year, this year’s Exhibition of Color is going to be phenomenal. As it is, what I found had me wowing out loud. My voice had to be heard and heard it was. A woman actually heard me wowing and came to my side, wowing right along with me.
The Presence of the Divine radiating from Mother’s Tapestry was so strong that day, I felt like falling to my knees. Sore though they were from all that gardening, I don’t think I would have been able to do so. However, my wow’s and saucered eyes filled with adoration for what was before me, more then made up for not falling to my knees.
My Journey began here minutes after I entered the park. My eye was caught in this dramatic outburst of color. Though it does not look it, there is quite a large distance between what is forefront and what is in back. I knew the image would come out looking like this while I carefully framed for the shot I was about to take. Magnificent!
This part of the trail leading to this building was closed while it is being renovated. This is the original house where the Reinstein family stayed when they came here for summer vacations. It is now mostly home to bats. Perhaps the repairs will allow the public to actually go inside to view this house. Now that would be cool!
You never know what you see when you look up! Overhead, a Canopy of Color!
I stood a long time wide eyed in wonder while on these two trails. The views, the colors were just breathtaking. I couldn’t get enough! I’m sighing as I write this!
This panorama I saw headed on my way back to my car. Due to my schedule that day, I had only a brief time. I had but one hour to dedicate to me. It was either one hour or nothing, and believe me, I used that hour wisely! This is another place I stood for a long time, just drinking in the glory set before me!
Unable to take one more moment of silence, my voice had to be heard and so I in my own way, applauded and wowed, telling Mother Her Tapestry was beyond perfection. Tears came to my eyes as I gawked. This is the Sacred Place when a woman came to my side sharing her reverence along with mine. She understood. She got it. The Presence of God was tangible!
When I turned looking to see what was behind me on the trail I was on, and saw this spectacular extravaganza of color galore, I just about dropped my camera. How can anything be more perfect then this? The painted sky, the infinite contrasts, the kaleidoscope of colors, the shapes, the water … the vista had my mouth wide open in awe awe awe. This is just the beginning of the Colors of Fall? We are in for quite the treat! Either that or the colors will burst quickly and fade just as fast. Oh please no!
This is another place my feet were rooted to the ground as my Spirit soared ever so high. I actually had to tone down the reds in this image. The colors yes were this bright, if not more so. Wow, just wow! Those reds glowed!
For reasons I cannot explain, while seeing this, I was reminded of Picasso. The splats of bright color through the darkened trees reminded me of his style of painting. Just glorious as I stood there again gaping, wishing I had more time that day to spend in this Paradise. But, the clock was ticking. I had to return home so that is what I did do. I had gone beyond my allotted time as is was.
In closing, I have proof that I, a mature woman of over 60, am accomplishing something so challenging, that most people just will not even attempt doing it. Stripped of estrogen, which if you don’t know creates the “sags”, I with the aid of diet and supplements combined with a lot of effort, am gaining muscle mass. You youngins, appreciate your body now. You have no idea how difficult it gets with age to keep a body in top shape.
I am a Miracle. If you fully knew the obstacles I have overcome, you would agree with me!
This post has been a part of Walktober 2019 over at Eliza’s blog. I’m also supposed to link this post to Breezes At Dawn whose brainchild Walktober 2019 is, so that is what I am doing. If any of you would like to join in the fun, you have until the 19th to show your own part of the world where Mother is displaying Her glorious Tapestry so unique Hers at this time of the year.
I also encourage all of you to experience the Colors up close and personal. Just don’t look at my pretty pictures. It is just not the same compared to standing before the Presence of Glory yourself. Don’t miss out. Life is just far too short to do so!
