Grounding in the Beauty of Nature

May 28 2019:

It’s been too many days without a walk. Finally. And since it’s been several days, I stood in this spot, under this tree, with this view. I removed my shoes and let my bare feet touch, skin to earth. I bent down and touched the ground with my fingertips. Grounding. Natures cure for whatever ails. Thank you Mama Nature. 🙏💚💙💚💙💚💙🙏

Couldn’t help myself.

Went for another walk after visiting Jack & Mittens, the two cats I care for when their human is out of town.

It was incredibly peaceful and beautiful. Ahhhhh …

Deeply grateful to Mother Nature for the beauty during the long walk today.

And deeply grateful to the young man sitting in the shade with his guitar playing and singing The Beatles She Loves You.

I wanted to take a photo. I wanted to tell him thank you. I wanted to stand and listen (and dance). Yet, I didn’t want to interrupt the zone. It brought pools of liquid love and gratitude to my eyes as I continued walking and taking it in.

Keep doing what you’re doing young man. Keep doing it. And, I thank you! 🙏💞💞💞🙏

Sensed it in My Bones

April 29 2019:

It was the long walk today. What a beautiful walk it was. Light, free, joyful. Listened to the birdsong. Felt the warmth of the sun and the lovely breeze. Smelled lilacs. Tasted my true self. Sensed newness in my bones. What a beautiful walk it was.

Sun Wishes

Went for a walk
Made a wish
Drew in a breath
Pursed my lips
Blew the wish
On waves of wind
To the loving
Embrace of the sun.

Having fun with these dandelion photos! Just love em!

Frozen in Time …. For a Moment

March 14 2019:

As I swiftly walked by the fountain this morning, I was stopped in my tracks. Nature is the most incredible artist. The beauty of these leaves suspended and frozen for a moment in time, captured my heart. And … I did spot a heart shaped leaf. Beautiful!!

I mean. Just had to give the heart shaped leaf it’s own post. The lil frozen bubbles, the green leaf down below, the frozen ripples, sections partially free from the frozen water. Ahhhhh ….

After an hour and a half phone interview for the ghost writing I’m working on, and ending the phone call having been touched deeply by this persons story ….

Walked outside to this beautiful scene. It was the cherry on top of how much joy and peace I have felt today. 🍒❤️💚

An inspiring two hours with this view, watching the sun set, sipping tea, and chatting with two incredibly dear friends.

Thank you Barbara Richmond Chastain and Bill for such lovely, inspiring conversation. Thank you for Seeing me, Hearing me, and Listening. Thank you for being a mirror so that I clearly see this amazing path I’ve traveled.

Love you both!!! 💗💗💗

Wonderful and Cold and Reset and Grateful and Go With the Flow and Magical and Gorgeous

December 9 2018:

Wonderful and COLD walk this afternoon. Brrrr! Nature is the perfect reset button for me. Deeply grateful. 🙏💙

Welcoming committee of one this afternoon as I crossed one of the foot bridges. Cutest lil rubber duckie with a message to go with the flow and be in the moment as that’s where the power exists and is available.

Ian Moran and Anne Weasley … I thought of Susan and just know this was her way of hugging me and happy dancing. She must know something I don’t! 💛💛💛🧡🧡🧡

Magical clouds …. 💙💙💙

Creamy layered clouds with a side of sun on the afternoon walk. Gorgeous!! 💙💙💙

Wind and Love and Fun and Turbulent and Beautiful and Gorgeous and Miraculous and Let Go

November 27 2018:

The hour long walk today was a workout!! Wind blowing so hard I couldn’t walk straight. Nature took the opportunity to remind me to love myself through the fun AND turbulent times …. and that love is always with us! One was even wrapped in a bow! Beautiful!!! 💙💙💙💨💨💨

Wonderful walk today with a gorgeous sky and clouds. It is truly miraculous when one lets go of an issue that the mind is determined to control and figure out.

The moment it is let go of from the mind, the solutions, opportunities, and signs flow. Almost so fast and so many, one can hardly keep up. 🙏💙
