The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce
I could not wait to read this book once I discovered it through social media. The author had me with the title. I deeply enjoyed the journey with Harold Fry and learning about he and his wife. I wasn’t at all suspecting the twist that unravels near the end of the journey. Whoa!
I found it to be a journey of self-discovery and healing for Harold and his wife, Maureen. Along with a varied mix of characters ebbing and flowing throughout the journey. I was inspired by Harold’s listening to the pull to do something absolutely remarkable; without even understanding why he felt the need to do it.
First stop: Enjoying the daisies and then having a yummy, delicious swim. 💦💙
Second stop: French fries for Lillian followed by a frog!!!
Tahini Broccolini for me followed by a vegan chocolate blackout cupcake for me. Lillian tried the broccolini and like it! It was so yum!! Charred broccolini with a smoky, lemony tahini sauce topped with toasted almonds.
Third stop: Audrey Harris Park – Read for a bit and then had fun taking photos! Love this view! 🌺🌺🌺
This. Oh yum! Oh yum! Oh yum!! Keep it away before I eat the entire container with the chips to match! I made a pizza last weekend and put dollops of this on it! Swoon!! Delicious!! 😋😋😋 Oh … And No Soy … I can’t handle soy! YAY!

Yesterday afternoon I had a distance Reiki session. Sending Reiki to a client in Surrey England. When the session was over I stepped outside to ground myself. Stood in the dirt, underneath this tree with my hands touching the tree. Then I looked up. Went back inside to get my phone and capture the beauty. What a session it was!
I have been on sabbatical from giving Reiki. When asked last week if I was willing to do a distant Reiki session, without hesitation I replied yes. That has not been the case in the past.
I feel it is time to offer this once again. So, if interested, let me know.
from Lalita … “The distance Reiki session with Camilla was healing nurturing, soothing, and powerful. It was a beautiful experience and one I treasure so much. – Lalita, Surrey, England
Monday walk. Check out the last photo. Looks like the leaves are dangling from the sunbeam on the left. Cool!!

Tuesday evening walk with Thomas! Love walks with Thomas and Lillian. Hopefully, Lillian and I will have one tomorrow for our June Date Day! Graced by the lovely white goose! (S)he comes every year in the beginning of spring.
If you enjoy the photography I share, and are moved to do so, I’d appreciate it if you’d buy me a coffee!! Thanks tons and tons! – Camilla
First draft of book blurb done! Dewey Decimal number figured out. Determining the Library of Congress Cataloging-in-Publication Data … in progress … My eyes are burning! HA! and YAY!! Words of Alchemy coming to life!
If you appreciate or are inspired by the writings I share, and moved to do so, I invite you to buy me a coffee. Deeply grateful! –Camilla
Mini date with Thomas today. Looked at a place for rent, went to Stone Age and had an amazing time looking at all the rocks and crystals and got us a few goodies too, then looking at guinea pigs, birds and fish!! Cold and rainy so we decided against our usual outdoor date style!! Now, if we could just combine the library/used book store and the Stone Age store into the Team TLC house … WOW!! I don’t know if we’d ever want to leave!! xoxo
It’s hard to get this one to stand still!! xoxo
We had a ball laughing with this goldfish. He was amazing!!!
Good Golly!! This place is fabulous … Stone Age .. Full of all kinds of amazing goodies! Got a chunk of opal, white quartz, and fuschsite, a gorgeous amethyst pendulum, a green aventurine pendent and a special little goody for Thomas and Lillian for Mother’s Day. YES! I am going to give each of them a gift tomorrow! I do it different around here! xoxo
Flying Solo – How Ruth Elder Soared into America’s Heart
from the flap: “The story of a remarkable woman who chased her dreams with grit and determination, and whose appetite for adventure helped pay the way for generations of female flyers.”
We enjoyed learning about Ruth Elder who attempted to fly across the Atlantic Ocean before Amelia Earhart made her crossing. Ruth didn’t make it, yet she went on to accomplish much in aviation history.
Absolutely gorgeous and beautiful sunset walk with Thomas yesterday. Just adore the way the trees and the sun play together. Love capturing their beauty.

Sunset walk yesterday …
Found a quiet shaded spot, took the shoes off, stood barefoot in the grass, touched the grass with my fingers ….. breathed it in and breathed it out.

From the walk yesterday.
Thank you Mother Nature. Thank you.
When one receives news that brings forth fire breathing anger, she is there to let you know it’s okay to let yourself feel this old and new anger. Feel it. Let it all bubble to the surface. Scream. Sob. Cuss. I will help you release it.
Deeply grateful to Mother Nature. Ahhhhh ….. Here’s to a new day! So good at what she does .. 🙏💙💚💙💚💙💚🙏

From a quick walk Friday night. I very much enjoy the challenge of aligning the trees, and branches, and sun. Just love how the sun, trees, and bushes model for me. They’re the best!! 💛🌸
