Missing Mitt

  1. I’m immersed in your photos. They give me peace and also a smile. The first one, with the trees, I see them dancing inside, intimately, and full of joy! All of the photos show the love of space and solitude and warmth, despite the cold air. Nice how the lost mitt helped you find someone! ❤

    1. Thank you, Pam. These parks I go to are where Mother surrounds me giving me such Peace. As I am fond of saying, there are no coincidences as I’ve learned how to follow my heart even if it doesn’t make sense. That day was crisp and chilly yet the scenery and the sun were glorious. Yes I consider it a GIFT these days to be able to have a conversation without the strain of watching what I say just in case I may offend the other person. It’s crazy. I’m so glad you enjoyed these images …. I keep looking at them and each time I do I go deeper. Fascinating how Mother pulls me in. May your day be a great one today!! Much love to you! xo

    Life goes on…people and things come and go…I understand how much you must be missing your mitt…they are not things ..they become so much integral to our life. ..
    Stay blessed 🙏😇

    1. Thank you, Krish! I become attached to things for sentimental reasons. LOL I’ve let it go for it for some reason was meant to go. Now I have another pair of good mitts that may even be better. Time will tell. You stay blessed as well!! xo

    1. When I did find this treasure, Rob, I cherished it. Thank you on my photographs. I just love this park and even without a camera, I intend to go back more oft just to walk instead of the park that is close by to our house. Hope you had a great day. I’ve been having the toughest time staying logged on at WP. Dangnation! xo

  3. Often we start a journey with a specific goal. But once we are on that journey, we see why we really were meant to get in motion. Life is amazing and the more we simply follow our intuition the more we are flowing with it. Thank you for sharing this story, Amy💖

    1. Erika, I’ve learned how to follow my heart, even if it makes no sense to me. I trust that connection. That is how I live my life for the most part. It tends to make life transformational. You are welcome for me sharing this story. As my sister tells me I have stories upon stories. I see life as one story book. Much love to you!! xo

      1. That is what makes life so thrilling. It suprises us so much with little miracles and unexpected solutions. It is an amazing adventure if only we let it happen and happen with it!
        Yes, it is a storybook with twist and turns. Thank you und much love to you too, Amy😊

    1. Yes, Kamal, I lost a mitt for sure yet the conversation I had with this absolutely wonderful young woman was well worth it. God truly is always in command and guides me in my every day. Thank you on my photographs. I hope you did receive much peace while looking at them. Much love to you! xo

  4. I am so happy you were brought back to the park for this very encounter! It is soul refreshing to connect with people on a deep level, as if God is telling you that you are on the right path. An the photos of paths that you shared………..they had shadows crossing the path, as if they are blocked from travel………..but we know they are not, again, it is just an illusion! Thank you!

    1. That was a test. I’m having a terrible time staying logged in. Yes it is soul refreshing to connect with people on a deep level, Wendi. It was such a glorious couple of moments. THANK YOU for seeing what I wanted you to see …. there were a lot of shadows in these pictures and a lot of symbols as well. Good job. I’ll try to get over to your blog later. Sending you much love!! xo

    1. Thank you, Cathy! I always ask questions, because I do like answers. That however didn’t stop me from following my heart’s guidance. No way. I’ve learned to always follow my heart. And yes the outcome of having an honest heart-to-heart conversation was heavenly!! Much love to you!! xo

  5. Oh, I *do* love what you’ve done with these photos! The clarity is amazing, and I feel like I’m taking that walk along with you. (And yes, I still love the bench with the ringed armrests!) Sorry about your mitt, but I’m glad you found another pair … and a convivial soul, to boot!

    1. Thank you, Debbie!! I had a lot of fun playing with them. This park is so so beautiful!! I find such solace there. I’m so so happy that you soaked up the magic that I presented here in this post. My mitt was just a messenger to lead me to a gold nugget. Hope your day is going great!! Sending you much love!! xo

  6. I totally trust you being called back in to the forest to meet this wonderful young woman. How amazing both of you ‘designed’ to meet each other.
    The pictures to me were a progression of openness, mixture/types of lines to going deeper in – and the lines became more pronounced from the shadows of the trees, zigzags & slanting, and then from the bench. There is so much aliveness, depth, specifics, clarity and beauty in the pictures. I found them very contemplative today.

    1. Just saw your comment come in, dear friend. I need time to digest your incredible observations. I’ll be back to answer more in depth. You saw what I hoped all would see. Amazing how insightful you have become. More later ….. xo

    2. K. I’m back. These pictures were stock full of shadows and symbols. The one that really struck me was the one of the path over the little creek with fences on either side. To the left on the path are 3 lines that I know are symbolic of something yet that knowledge still has yet to come. That day was magical as I stopped to just stare for long periods of time.
      Your observations are spot on, Prag. These images are deep and the more you look the deeper you get pulled in. I cannot explain it. They are of the same group of pictures I took for “Walk About” but these for some reason jumped out at me. Over and over again as I was editing I was pulled to this that and the other lost in deep thought. There are clues throughout these pictures but of what that I don’t know. I have the images in my mind’s eye so I know when I do come across the meaning of the symbols I will have the “A-Ha” moment. Very cool how astutely you observed. We of the spoiled generation zip through picture after picture because there are just so many. Me however I tend to sip, look, and feel what I am seeing. Truly spectacular job you did with these!! I say good for you! Your third eye is opening more and your connection to All There Is, is getting stronger. Very cool!! Very!!!
      Sending you much love!!! xoxoxoxo

      1. Look, feel and sip instead of zip through the pictures – so aptly perfectly said. These sights are indeed worthy of our sacred attention. Even now I can imagine few details from these pictures without seeing them – zigzag shadows crossing horizontal ones on the path, the bench and its shadow …your deep dives into these inner dimensions gives a very magical energy to your pictures which in turn brings me in touch with my own magical inner space, I write effortlessly on your posts – moreso than my own posts, which have more mental aspects to it, as much as I would like it different. I am still dependent I guess, rather timid still to engage in these energies on my own.

      2. Again as I am answering comments I saw yours come in. Oh, Honey, how I encourage you to TRUST yourself enough to just let go and flow. I NEVER know previously what I am going to write. It is always in the NOW moment. There are times I think what I want to write in a post sometimes, but most times I sit down and off my fingers go. It’s almost like automatic writing as if an energy is flowing through me. It’s glorious!! There are times I struggle when tired to think of what I want to write but usually the words just come as they are right now. My advice? Get out of your head and get into your heart. It’s effortless. Yes I do edit sometimes a lot as I put the finishing touches on what was originally written. That is when I get into my head. I highly recommend it. It’s fun. If you see my next post, as of this writing I have no idea what it will be about. So IF you see the next post of mine, I want you to remember this. It’s an adventure. It’s spontaneous. Or sometimes something in my life happens and I know right then yes this is what I will write about. I feel like a kid. SMILING!!! xo

      3. I remember the taste of being that way. Perhaps I ‘trained’ myself a bit much to be able to function in this world. That’s why poetry stopped coming to me. It is tricking back now. I keep going back and forth, in and out of flow. Thank you for taking the time out for me. I hear your message, my heart receives it sacredly. I trust the flow regardless of how I am engaging with it. I am here. I will keep going. Thank you again very much.

    1. Those are the exact two favorite ones of mine too, those and the next one. There is just so much depth to these and so much I can still get from out of them. My heart was so tugged on that day. It was actually another day I bumped into a like-minded friend. Oh how I treasure that interaction to this day! Sending you much love! xo

  7. Hi Amy! Sorry about your mitt – I was thinking by the end of the story you’d have found it! But what you did find was equally as valuable. Glad to hear you found a good replacement and you never know – maybe someday the missing will surface!!Lovely photos of a lovely park. It’s so serene. Winter gives a whole new view and perspective on things!! Have a lovely weekend!! Much love, Donna

    1. Oh wow, Donna! I’ve been on a whirlwind today! It is 3:30 and I’ve yet to eat lunch. The end of the story wasn’t quite what you expected, huh? LOL Nope. Even something better came into view. I LOVE this park! I went without my cameras yesterday and walked probably 2.5 miles. When I got back to my car I was shocked for only 45 minutes had gone by. I shook my head in wonder. Mother split the time atom again for me. When I’m with my cameras I take a lot longer of course. (smile) I’ll be going there a lot more for just a walk …. I gain so much peace and solace there, unlike any other park. Have a great weekend!! Mine thus far has been NUTS! Whew! Love you! xo

    1. Yes, Celestine, in meeting that “soul-sister” so much JOY came to my heart and a realization I am not alone fighting this horrid evil that surrounds all of us. It is definitely refreshing to be on the same wavelength. Agreed!! Much love to you and you stay safe as well. This world has gotten to be a dangerous one. xo

  8. What a bummer about that mitt! But, on the plus side, what a wonderful conversation you enjoyed. It really does raise our spirit doesn’t it, when we meet another who shares our views. I’ve had a number of conversations like that recently and it soothes the soul. Thanks for the gorgeous pics Amy, love the shadows and contrasts. Sending you lots of love and warm hugs. ❤️ xxx

    1. Yeah, Miriam, it was quite the bummer at first but not only did I find even a better pair of mitts but I gained a precious conversation. I had another conversation just yesterday, this time on the phone, and it was my hair stylist telling me they are opening again. I was overjoyed! We talked and as I always do with him, I don’t hold back on how I see things. He burst out “Oh, how I’ve missed talking to you!” Yeah, B., feeling is mutual. If people haven’t woken up yet I don’t know when they ever will. Anyway ….. thank you for taking the time out to comment. You must be thrilled by your newfound freedom. Sending you lots of love and warm hugs back!! xo

  9. I think my favorite ‘spot’ today was standing amongst all of the bare trees. Though bare of leaves, I find them solid and comfortable. I always love the feeling of being among trees. ❤ thank you for the walk AmyRose!

  10. Hello dear Amy,
    Lots of spectacular beauty in your autumn shots. Thank you!
    OMG… the turkeys are special. I just adore them!
    I’m thrilled to have seen your photo of the last pink rose. What a fantastic floral summer you shared with us. Nature, mother as you call her, is a great creator.

    Of course, I am making a garden Art Gown, and sew (lol) the flowers are still growing here. I’ve made 30 out of about 60 so far. I feel very happy and content when I’m sewing. It’s such a peaceful space. The gown itself is in the thick. I will be setting the tail, soon, but there is still a lot of stitching to do. Yay!!

    My cats are always jealous of the gowns. I do put extra chairs for them to sit on when I sew. Nonetheless, when it’s time to vomit, they rush into the Art Gowns room. I love them so much! Another reason I think you are so wonderful, is your love and devotion to your babies!

    I try to buy Canadian and American. I’ve been boycotting Chinese products for decades. Still, as you point out, they have infiltrated the market.

    I refuse to go to any big box stores, shopping locally for produce. That’s why I chose to live in this neighbourhood. There is a village type shopping strip, which the residents have been fighting to hang onto for years.
    I’ve been boycotting Amazon for about 4 years now.

    Psalm 23 is the most beautiful of all!
    I also like Ezkiels …. a wheel within a wheel and Ecclesiastes – Turn, turn turn.

    Thank you so much for all the beauty of Mother’s that you share!

    1. Thank you, Resa, for all your beautiful words regarding my posts. I’m happy for you that you have found something that puts you in the NOW moment and away from all the ugliness in the world. I’m left with little choice for now but to shop at Amazon. I have very little time to get to stores. Unfortunately the “little” stores are closed. I’m in awe how long each flower in of itself takes to make. You put so much time and love into your creations. You are truly an inspiration.
      Merry Christmas, dear friend. Sending you much love and peace. xoxoxoxo
