“Hold out your hands to feel the luxury of the sunbeams. Press the soft blossoms against your cheek, and finger their graces of form, their delicate mutability of shape, their pliancy and freshness. Expose your face to the aerial floods that sweep the heavens, “inhale great draughts of space,” wonder, wonder at the wind’s unwearied activity.
Pile note on note the infinite music that flows increasingly to your soul from the tactual sonorities of a thousand branches and rumbling waters ….. I am sure that if a fairy bade me choose between the sense of sight and that of touch, I would not part with the warm, endearing contact of human hands or the wealth of form, the mobility and fullness that press into my palms.” – The Faith of Helen Keller
Walk with Thomas earlier this evening … Just got to see how this picture turned out .. LOVE it! Looks like a giant lit match or giant glow ball on a stick! HA! It’s a lamp post with the sun lined up right on top of it!
LOVE looking for LOVE everywhere we go!
Came across a dead bird. Thomas said we had to have a funeral for it. He found a stick to push it into the bushes. I said some kind words about Mr. Birds soul … and we carried on … then we came across the big heart rock in one of these pictures! xoxo
Honeysuckle …. I LOVE HONEYSUCKLE!!!!!!!!!! Intoxicating!
Midday walk with Lillian. It’s cooling down enough that we can have a walk midday now. Wahoo!!!! Here comes autumn!

Solo walk this morning. It’s been a year or two since I walked around this entire loop. It felt incredibly good and was deeply inspiring. I visited a few old friends I used to hang out with often …. The trees …. And told them I loved and missed them. Love, love, love!
Walk with Thomas before dinner. We watched for about fifteen minutes as this momma duck led her wee ducklings through the rocks to the water.
It was difficult to watch and not want to help as they kept sliding down the rocks. They finally made it!!! Safe and sound!! Whew! I circled the ducklings and the momma in blue because they blend with the rocks.
There was quite the cloud show.Rainbow cloud in the second photo. The photo doesn’t show all the colors; yet, it was amazing. Incredibly beautiful!!!
