Sunset meditation. Attempting to quiet the mind. And. Be still. So that I know. It’s there. In my heart. May a quiet night and dream time reveal the knowing. xoxoxo

Moonlit Walk With Thomas Vintage Lake 8.8.17

August 10 2017:

Sunset walk with Thomas. Gosh! Conversations with him simply blow my mind. A long walk and then a long sit on the lodge patio.

We talked about his thoughts on Disney movies, people who are paid to create viral videos, thoughts on why and what people find amusing in some of these videos, Sam Walton, Wal-Mart employee pay vs amount of money the company brings in weekly, obsessive compulsive tendencies, autism, cigarettes, cigars, pipes, electronic cigarettes, adult beverages, and I’m sure more that I’m leaving out. And this was only about an hour and a half!

He found a treasure during our walk and explained it to me. He also spotted an amazing heart for me to photograph. And, apparently a kiss from me is explosive! Wahooo!!! I choose happy …. xoxo

Sunset walk for all of Team TLC. Beautiful with a light breeze and fun conversation. Left a treasure for someone to discover and claim. I’ve had the “acceptance” rock for many years and it was time to pass it on.

Thomas and Lillian had fun with her braids in one of the pictures. We laughed a lot during this walk. And that felt good. I choose happy.

Morning walk at the Galena Creek Visitor Center. Amazing beauty and peace, along with wonderful tree companions.

So incredibly grateful to Nature for the peace she brings amongst uncertainty and times of not knowing. This is the hugest and biggest surrender, letting go, and not knowing to date. xoxoxo

Sunset walk with Thomas last night. Such a heart filled walk with this wonderful young man I get to share this life’s journey with as mother and son.

We fed the ducks along with a few wee ducklings and took our time. Afterwards we sat for a while on the lodge patio talking about movies. Then we came home, got Lillian, and went for a moonlit swim.

It was so much more than that. The walk, feeding ducks, sitting, and chatting, and swimming …. We were connecting and sharing love. I know we are both grateful for that and for Mother Nature. xoxo

Sunset walk at Washoe Lake tonight. Wow! There’s no beach. Just WOW!

As we were driving I mentioned how badly I wanted to take them to an ocean beach. What a surprise when we arrived! Wave after wave just like an ocean beach! It felt absolutely incredible.

Thank you SO much. And bring us more please.

The morning of July 4th brought the return of the pelicans and their wisdom to the little lake.

Good reminders on this Independence Day … Freedom from the ego, letting emotions float through, and the ability to return from extinction. Wonderful …. xoxo ….

Cormorant wisdom visited too! I just adore these creatures. They are so graceful. Cormorants brought wisdom of patience and use of the sun as a healing agent. xoxo

Took my morning walk in the forest this time. After dropping Thomas at camp, had some me time.

Oh my yummy! Plus, that’s some darn ice cold water! My feet were resisting after I initially plunged them into it.

This is the kind of walk that lets you know just how out of shape ones body has gotten. Lots of chipmunk wisdom reminding me that I have the ability to see the light and the shadows, the ability to carry spiritual nourishment with me, and I have mobility.

Incredibly grateful to Mother Nature. What a blessing. Spent a few minutes with the amazing tree near the end of the pictures. Mr. Tree gracefully soaked in and transmuted some unlovely feelings. Whew!!!

Now for a quick swim with Lillian before a busy busy rest of the day.

By the Shine of the Moon and Beautiful and Peaceful and Loving

May 3 2017:

Thomas and I had an extremely rough night last night with addressing one another’s thorns and triggers. This was after those life lessons …

Playing in the sprinklers by the shine of the moon last night with Thomas. Mother Nature is an incredible gift to us.

Much needed. So grateful to Mother Nature!
