    1. Thank you, Gigi!! Hope you are experiencing the wonder of Mother up close and personal. The up close and personal is nothing compared to these pictures. Have a great day!! xo

    1. *blushes* For me to admit that I sing in an “imaginary” tongue took a lot of courage, Rob. For heavens sake, I’m a grown woman after all. Yet that kid in me just wants to play darn it. I actually heard a couple yesterday speaking a language I could not identify with lots of rolling r’s, and I thought, “Huh. That kinda sounds like my fairy lingo.” So instead of feeling foolish and self-conscious, I’m gonna work on confidence by singing more, acting like hey, this really is another language. Who knows? It is possible it is! And thank you on my photography! The fairies were lighting up the place just for me. (smile) xo

      1. Nice comeback!! Impressive! More young people such as yourself need to begin realizing the “mature” in society have much wisdom and beauty to share. Thank you! It is shocking how the USA treats “older” people. In many other cultures throughout the world, the elders are revered for the knowledge life itself has taught them.

      2. You are absolutely right mam, in our society senior citizens are respected as per their age requirement. They are considered to be the strongest people of our society. Their decisions are accepted with great honor and respect.

  1. Well done AR!!!You made it through and still managed to capture great colors…Such a pretty place to go. Our leaves are pretty well gone now. A few places remain but the rain storms did the leaves in. Glad you are feeling better now and the pain is gone. Have a happy day! Hugs and love…VK ❤

    1. Thank you, VK! It is gorgeous in this park. What I love most about it is its wildness. Today I’m going outside … seems like Indian summer is here and I plan on enjoying every minute I can. Hubby loves bad news so he keeps saying …. Bad weather is coming by the end of the week. I say in return …. Today is all we have and I plan on making the most of it. (smile) Much love and many hugs back at you! xo

  2. No wonder you had difficulties at the start of your hike – these photos are breathtaking!!! What remarkable colors, mother is so beautiful in her fall robe! Glad to hear your groin muscle felt better the next day. Good on you for singing and engaging the elementals – they love it!! Beautiful work! Much love to you!! Donna

    1. Isn’t this forest gorgeous, Donna? I haven’t been there all year on account of the extremely challenging hills. Until I get this back and legs of mine working correctly, this park is on my “go to places” list. But it was so worth the day I went there. I just had to see the Autumn leaves that are there …. there is nothing quite like this park. The beauty just took my breath away and when I did begin to sing, at first turning blue like I said, something came over me and it seemed that entire forest was singing along with me. It was the most incredible experience! I’ve got the goosebumps writing this. My voice never sounded better either. How cool!! It was only after I began to sing did I begin to see the “magic”. That pain was awful to contend with …. but with the magic of music it faded to the background. (smile) Much love to you!! xo

  3. Amy, those colors… THOSE COLORS!! WOW! Gorgeous! And so must you have been while singing your pain away. This could have likely happened to me too… lol. I hope the pain has gone or at least got a lot better!

    1. I so agree with you, Erika! The colors were a Masterpiece and before my eyes I was transported into heaven itself. I really didn’t sing my pain away …. I just adjusted my focus in order for me to be present in that Moment so that I could Connect. Singing in of itself takes me away into another world. You know all about that, dear friend. I’ve been having issues with my back and legs for months now and slowly but surely am attaining a stronger state. Thank you so much for your kindness. Much love and peace to you! xo

      1. I absolutely know what you mean. Singing is an outlet which detachtes and changes the energy. I am sorry to hear about you dealing with back and leg issues. And for sure it is a good thing to not let you keep you from doing such great walks… when even it is one effort. Huge hugs, Amy 💖

      2. Erika, because of who I am, I shall overcome these difficulties as I morph into an even stronger woman who could hike in this park in past years. In seeing an acupuncturist, muscles that I have not been using correctly are now being used properly but OH they hurt and they are weak. Little by little, by doing what I am, I’m gaining strength again! (((HUGS)))!! xo

      3. You made it through and over so much. I think that is one of the biggest encouragements which gives you the power to stand up again and again and look out for the solution and not dig into the problem. Thank you for being such a role model for us here. Cheers to you, dear Amy 💖

  4. Absolutely beautiful pictures Amy!!

    As for groin pain, I remember 30 yrs ago, either tearing or pulling my right groin muscle where I couldn’t even sit without tylenol. I remember I gave up running but walked on treadmill for 6 months until it healed. As a enthusiast athlete, I’ve had my share of injuries.

    Glad you’re doing better and showing us your lovely work.😁💕

    1. Thank you, Emma! You must have really done a good one on your groin muscle. Whoa! Mine is still sore and spoke some when I was working on cables today for my legs. I’ve been on the mend now for over 6 months, not saying too much here about it. Looking at the glass half full, I’m assisting my back and legs to get strong in the correct way they are supposed to work. And yeah, it’s happening! Much love to you! xo

    1. It became perfect when I began to sing. Before then I was grumping, in all truthfulness. I’m just so glad I did make it out that way because this park is so unique and just breathtaking with all its huge trees. Thank you for stopping by to see this post, Colleen. It means a lot to me. xo

  5. Oh Amy, what great shots. Are you sure you didn’t bump into heaven, such a golden glow everywhere. I would love to walk through somewhere like that…I’d deliberately get lost 😀
    And I think you may have found another gift young lady, if you can sing like that and heal yourself, imagine that power in your voice to heal others. Mind you, I think your lovely cats at home can attest to that 😀

    1. Dearest friend, how your words not only touched my heart but put warm tingles all within. Yes I did find heaven that day but it really wasn’t until I started singing that I “saw” it and “felt” it. I never thought about I healed myself. I just figured that the muscle that hurt so much decided to just heal. Now you’ve got me seriously wondering. I can attest my cats love when I sing and in fact, one of them sings along with me. Cuddles who passed this year used to sing with me all the time and it took me a long time to find my singing voice again after his death. *tears* I have to build up my confidence to really sing with people present, Mark. Not only am I singing in a language I cannot ID, but I’m matching my voice to the music I hear in my head. You’ll know it when I hit a wrong note.
      The effort put forth that day to get these pictures and more that I have not shown, makes me determined to frequent this park more often. I slacked off this year due to my back and legs and the triple deaths we had in under 4 months time that made me very ill. I’m strong again so …. I’m doing this!! Bless you!! (((HUGS)))!!! xo

      1. Dear Amy, the power in words are huge. The power in singing is something else again. Hence why we all relax so much to music. You may be surprised that this ‘language’ is of another kind and as you said, you notice when the key is off, it must be ‘given’ from a very heartfelt place…and is a very priceless gift. If you do a laying on of hands as you sing gently to your cats, you will see their response truly ❤️

      2. (smiling) I’ve already done that. And with the horse next door too. That is another story that someday will be told. I’m hoping I can find someone to take pictures who knows the “art of being invisible”. What is transpiring with this horse tween she and me is astounding.
        I know music is magical. And where this music comes from I just don’t question … it just is. Thank you for the encouragement as I walk a life of celebrating “different”. Much love to you! I am not able to express to you how much you mean to me! (((HUGS)))!!! xo

    1. Bless you, Zia, for this comment. Bless you! You understand the magic of what I did and how one has to believe first in order to experience the Nature Spirits. I see them at times when the light is just right. Many times I have photographed them with my composition but if you don’t know what to look for, and yes take the time to look, you won’t see them.
      You are so very very welcome for me sharing this. It was my pleasure!! (((HUGS)))!!! xo

    1. Thank YOU ever so much!! I agree these trees are stunning. Walking among those giants at times was surreal. Honestly I was at first so disappointed I missed the peak but then when I really got into seeing how gorgeous the sights still were, my soul just flew and heaven was known! xo

  7. Oh AmyRose … what a delightful post. First of all, WOW to the images – and to think you just missed the peak colors. Actually, that’s hard to imagine. Loved the personal story of your walk. The pain seems horrible, but loved the wow you got through it. Good for you … Sing away!

    1. I know I missed the peak, Frank, because I’ve been there in years previous. When I got over my pout session …. feeling sorry for me both for that pain and not hitting the peak …. and began to sing, everything shifted so that I could both feel and see the magic. This park is so wild and so beautiful yet those hills …. yiveh!!! They are tough! There is a trail I regularly traveled on in this park where I actually had to forge a creek. I have every intention to gain back the confidence in my legs to do that very thing again! This is one place I have found where the Silence is complete … no traffic …. no air traffic … no trains. Heaven on earth!! And yeah I’m still singing! Love to do so!! Hope you are having a great day! This is my third day still answering comments on this post. LOL Told you my blog is a runaway train. Teehee …..

    I would love to be able to walk in that forest.
    It is good to be able to change our mind, when we walk in pain. You found your way of distraction, which helped you continue and find yourself in connection with the nature in same time.
    Amazing beautiful photos.

    1. Thank you for this comment, Irene. I’m so happy you saw the magic this forest holds. I know from previous years I did not hit the peak Fall colors, but when my singing adjusted my eyes to really SEE the beauty still there, the bliss and ecstasy and Connection returned. That journey was worth the effort. I have every intention of returning to this park as my legs get stronger and stronger. Much love to you, dear friend!! xo

    1. Yes, Julie, music is magic!! Some of my cats, especially Jersey responds and before our eyes, perks up looking better. Finally Hubby is getting on board, realizing even though my “words” may not be English, what I am singing truly is magical. I’ve never had the experience of those woods as I did that day. The acoustics blew me away! And yes, it felt as if all of that forest was singing along with me. (GRIN!)

  9. what a gorgeous wak! So sory you were in pain, but I can relate. I’m stubborn that way too, pushing forward anyway. Thanks for sharing with us this fleeting beauty. Another week or 2, the whole walk will be different. So nice that people encouraged you to sing, that’s really sweet and so worth hearing about.

    1. Linda, it’s already different. Rain has begun and by tonight very high winds are coming which means the leaves that are still on the trees will be gone. *sigh*
      Sometimes when we push through pain, it is unbelievable what we can achieve. It takes a huge amount of will power to do so! And yes those two people …. even though I was squirming, did encourage me to continue singing. I’m getting braver. LOL SO happy you stopped by to see the incredible beauty found in Chestnut Ridge Park. Much love to you! xo

    1. Oh yes we “had” Autumn. We had very high winds and a lot of rain which brought down most of the leaves. As for the weather, we are not able to control it but we are able to control how we “react” to it. This year I’m really going to put forth the effort of not letting my mood slide down on account of Winter. Winters are just so long, here, Cheryl. Five months is a long time to see bleak and bare and grey and have bone chilling cold. That all aside ….. I’m enjoying what color is left here right now. xo

    1. I deal with chronic pain, Michelle. In getting my legs to work right, the “healing” journey has at times been brutal. But, what I am beginning to witness brings great relief and joy! As for the singing …. A huge shift in consciousness takes place for me. My cats adore my voice and respond as though they are in cat heaven. (smile) xo

  10. I’m glad your groin pain has passed. Mucking out stalls is seriously hard work for the whole body. Also, we went hiking last weekend and there were a few inclines where I was lucky to talk, sure couldn’t have sung! lol

    1. Hi, Ali! I’ve lived with pain since 1993, and every day I choose how I will go about my day. This particular day if I had known to be truthful, how painful that groin muscle would be, I probably wouldn’t have gone. I do not enjoy inflicting any unnecessary pain on myself. But, the glorious pictures I obtained gives me so much satisfaction that I was able to push through that pain in ways that I have devised in order to overcome obstacles. That day was pure magic. I am going to make a great effort to get back there in the Winter for pictures. I’m so happy you stopped by. I hope I’ve encouraged you to push through on those days when life is downright awful. Bless you! xo

  12. Just Brilliant Amy, in that you help others when in need, and you don’t allow pain to get in the way of your day.. And love it that you Sang your heart out… Singing like laughter is a great healer..
    And all connects to our hearts..
    Your hearts reward is shown clearly in the images here you have captured my friend.. They are magnificent in all of Mothers Golden Glory..
    I just showed them to my hubby who also was in awe of them..
    I am a bit later arriving again here my friend.. But we had a few dry patches of weather so we too got stuck in the home garden, clearing leaves and tidying up for the arrival of winter.. I fleeced three of my jasmine climbers and planted more bulbs for spring..
    Love your way dearest Amy… And thank you for baring the pain to bring us these lovely Autumn photos. ❤

    1. Dearest friend, your words I read this morning and again now, and both times they put tears in my eyes. Not many know, not even hubby, how much pain I live with on a daily basis sometimes until it is so great I have no option but to moan out loud. That day in the park, the pain was too high, too harsh and I had to do something to tone it down. So I sang. And yes Sacred is the Song of the Soul for I know that forest recognized that Song and joined in. What a heavenly choir I heard with just one voice of one. Thank you for showing hubby the magic I saw that day. Bless you for sharing with him.
      A gardener’s work is never done until as in this part of the country, the ground is frozen and it is snowing. I miss my flowers yet, I don’t miss the work. I cannot even begin to imagine all the work involved in keeping up with all you have. You are an inspiration!!
      No worries about coming late. I’m not going anywhere nor are my posts. Bless you for loving my way, Sue. That means to me that your way is very similar. Different perhaps but in the end, the same. (smile) Much love to you!! xoxo

      1. Bless you too Amy, at the end of the day what many of us fail to understand is that at the end of the day we are ONE. All on different paths, yet all of us are finding our way. Overcoming our own particular obstacles of one form or another.
        We dear friend have had to overcome the feelings taken on in childhood, we have both known heart pain, as well as physical pain, for me it was FMS. and Raynaud’s, among other things.
        We inspire I think because we SEE the journey, this road that has molded us into who we are.
        Without those struggles, those lessons, how can we teach and reach out to others and let them know all is well in your world, once you let go and allow your self to BE.
        We still have our ups and downs, we are still growing even now.
        But through our growth, we have set ourselves free. Free to be standing in our own TRUTH. Sharing our knowledge that at times comes from our connection with the Divine. Our Mother,.
        I am so grateful for your love and friendship and support dear Amy as we traverse this planet on our exploration of self discovery.
        We are One 😁💕💚🤗🥰
