Capturing and Grounding in Nature’s Beauty with Fire Breathing Bubbling to the Surface Smelling of Roses

June 3 2019:

Absolutely gorgeous and beautiful sunset walk with Thomas yesterday. Just adore the way the trees and the sun play together. Love capturing their beauty.

June 3 2019:

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.

June 5 2019:

After sunset walk with Lillian last night. Almost missed it!

June 7 2019:

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 .. 🙏💙💚💙💚💙💚🙏

Lillian and I had an appointment on Thursday and these beauties surrounded the building and parking lot. The smell!!!! Divine!!!

June 9 2019:

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!! 💛🌸

The scene Saturday night. Just had time to look at the photos I took! Wow!! Mother Nature can be intensely dramatic!! And gorgeous. And beautiful. And mesmerizing. 💗💗💗

Even the Wind Likes to Read While Beautiful Buds Listen in the Shadows of Us and Birdsong

April 23 2019:

A book.
An egret.
A flowering bush.
All discovered on the walk yesterday. When I came across each one, I was moved to stop and take in the scene. Most especially, the open book with pages being turned by the ghostly wind. Even the wind likes to read. 😘📖💨🌸💖 (To clarify, the book is not mine … it was simply sitting on the rock with its pages being turned by the wind .. Struck me as beautiful!)

April 25 2019:

It was the long walk today. Will need to start getting out there earlier. When it warms up here, it don’t mess around!! Loved these beautiful buds!!

April 25 2019:

Sunset walk with Thomas … Nice and warm with a light breeze. Beautiful and peaceful. Largest family so far … 23 or more goslings!! He’ll let me take a photo of his shadow. I’ll take whatever I can get!

April 26 2019:

Today’s walk. Sat for a bit underneath this tree. Listened to the birdsong and the ducks and the geese. Felt the silky air against my skin. Smelled the smells. Haven’t done that in way too long. Ahhhhhh …

 

Earth Day 2019 – Making Wishes and Sunset Beauty

Mother Nature showed up in a beautiful way for Earth Day. She called me out for three walks. One with Lillian. One by myself. And one with Thomas.

She knew after I spent the morning looking into how much to replace the radiator in our car, I would need some Nature Love. 💙 🌏 🌏 🌏💚

Made wishes with Nature Made wishing “flowers”. Isn’t she beautiful?? Just can’t get enough of her loveliness.

Loved these wispy clouds. Lillian had a great time taking photos.

Earth Day sunset walk with Thomas yesterday. Absolutely gorgeous!!

Lillian and Camilla April 2019 Date Day

April 8 2019:

Lillian and Camilla April 2019 Date Day! First, a stop to look for a new skirt or dress for Lillian. Found one! Yay!!

Next was a stop for fries ….. they were out of fries so she tried the sweet potato tots. Oh my goodness! Those were good!!

Pink and yellow frosted sugar cookie for her and we split the other two goodies. A vegan Neapolitan cupcake (good grief, that was so good) and a vegan snicker doodle cookie dough bite. Next stop was an incredibly windy walk.

Last stop – An incredibly windy walk!

Sunset Healing and Miniature World of Moss with Three Little Birds in the Cold

Sunset walk with Thomas.

Breathe it in
Breathe it out

Look up
Look around

Keep walking
Keep writing

Keep knowing
Keep loving

Hold space
For them
For you

This is the Way
This is the unfolding
Nature of life.

Lillian and I visited the little garden behind the library today after volunteering. We went to look at and photograph the daffodils.

Yet, I was loving this Moss, even more than the daffodils. So soft and a beautiful shade of green. For some reason I hadn’t noticed it before. Got my attention this time! The moss is like a miniature world! So lovely!

April 5 2019:

Sunset walk with Thomas yesterday.

Every little things gonna be alright. Three little birds told me so. 🖤🖤🖤

Just about the only photos I get of Thomas these days … (3rd photo)
