Encouragement

In leaning in close to encourage another   it’s as though Heaven itself conjoins with Earth. ~~~~ Every other year since I have been blogging, I would literally run after the colors seen in Fall. Hundreds if not thousands of pictures have been taken in past years. There is something about Fall that is so … Continue reading Encouragement

Getting There!

Friends, I am getting there. I’ve gone through 72 pounds (32.66 kg) of fertilizer so far. To give you an idea of what I’ve done, I followed the “per plant” directions which state for each established plant, work 1 cup of fertilizer into soil around drip line. To go one step further, I weighed that … Continue reading Getting There!

Bungled Bombshell

For about a week, my sister and I had been playing phone tag. Very unusual for us because we do our darnedest to return voice messages with a prompt phone call. We speak on a [gasp] landline phone, not a cell. My sister normally doesn’t turn her cell on so any texts I sent I … Continue reading Bungled Bombshell

Unconscious Fear

Written for Wendi. Bless you on your journey.   Reading the words, “Always the battle of the Spiritual Warrior is with the self. Funding a will though action, yet¬†unattached to outcomes,¬†remaining¬†mindful that all you can do is stay out of your own way and let the Will of Heaven flow through you — these are … Continue reading Unconscious Fear

Awareness

“Generosity, morality, respect, service, ¬†….. meditation — these are actions for the good. Each one is a practice¬†that can be cultivated and further¬†refined, becoming the causes for our own happiness and the happiness of others. These acts for the good become our gift to the world.” Joseph Goldstein This is my third attempt to write … Continue reading Awareness

The Station

In much need of my therapist, I opened the cupboard door, reached in, and firmly took hold of my sanity check. From there I slid open our glass patio door to sit on our picnic bench. All Summer I’ve wanted to shoot those who come to my Hummingbird feeder and I just yesterday got around … Continue reading The Station

Life!

What are the chances it poured yesterday, the very day I planned on watering all my gardens? In fact, I had a sprinkler on, timer set, as I went upstairs to change from my pj’s into the clothes for the day. By the time I came back downstairs, a matter of about I’d say no … Continue reading Life!

Math Help

Yesterday I asked Hubby to help me figure out how much total square footage I have in my gardens. Why? The instructions on the fertilizers I plan on turning into the soil this Fall, direct me to put a certain amount in the soil per 100 square feet. Hubby’s eyes came to life after I … Continue reading Math Help

Own It!

Hubby asked me if I used several images to create this one picture. My answer was no. I couldn’t even if I knew how to, which I don’t. (smile) I was told the composition was exceptional, and to be truthful I was in awe as well. Just this one picture I could look and look … Continue reading Own It!

Monarchy

Some are tattered   some are young   yet what matters   is the song   the pulse-like Life Force   throbbing in all   who dare to¬†submit   to the fuse beckoning to be lit. ~~~~ Forego the wrong dates on my pictures. I still cannot believe it is August. I’m still in July. … Continue reading Monarchy

Do We?

Do we ever really see the entire picture within each and every moment? ~~~~   Do we think it possible to be able to know all there is to know? ~~~   Do we take into consideration that life itself offers us patterns and standards if we but fully open? ~~~~   Do we have … Continue reading Do We?

High Price To Pay!

What I went through yesterday just to get some pictures! I was eaten alive by skeeters even though I had insect repellent on! I was shocked! These insects this year have been ferocious, vicious, and in such a huge quantity that I cannot even walk out my door in the evening without putting insect repellent … Continue reading High Price To Pay!

Love And Roses

Why are roses   symbolic of Love   when along with the rose   come very sharp thorns   that if not handled with care   do prick and make bleed?   Could roses be   representations of Love   because Love includes   both Beauty   and pain? ~~~~~~ Handheld manual macro photography/ “Roses … Continue reading Love And Roses

Consequences

Without the walk with the talk actions are fraught in empty naught. Walk your talk solid and true for those around you to believe in you.   Otherwise you aint but a taint in this world a blight a nuisance ő∂ an empty shell rattling in your own hell. ~~~~~ Why else does the butterfly … Continue reading Consequences

Synchronicity

With one eye on the clock, I was headed towards my Chiropractor’s office. If I hit green lights for the most part, I think I had a good chance getting there on time. When I saw flashing lights ahead of me after crossing a huge bridge that spanned a huge gorge, I groaned. Sure enough … Continue reading Synchronicity
