Team TLC sunset walk yesterday … Followed by a moonlit swim in the pool. Incredibly grateful and blessed.

This crows family is looking out for him. He’s not able to fly and he’s been hanging out here for a couple of days. Every time I walk by they start cawing like crazy to warn him. I saw one bringing him food this morning. Hoping it’s something he can heal from and rejoin his family.

Oh so beautiful clouds as Thomas and I were headed to Alchemist Theatre last night. I love the amazing shapes of our clouds!
Sunset walk yesterday evening. What a beautiful night it was. Felt so good. I’ve got something weighing on my mind and nature is my confidant and the one who helps me get out of the mind and into the heart.

Don’t hold onto it. Don’t let it soak within. Let it roll off.
Nature always has a perfect message for us when we stop, Be quiet, and Listen.
A message I needed to hear once again today as I make my way into unfamiliar territory for me.

The most amazing and wonderful sunset walk last night. Nature is an incredible gift and blessing. She inspires us to ponder.
Do we love and accept others for who they know themselves to be or do we love and accept our idea of them and how we think they make us feel? I’ve got a writing bubbling forth. 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!!!

Photo bombed by a bee. He thinks these are beautiful too!
There’s really not much I truly know. Yet. This. I do know. Nature awakens the Knowing of my Heart. xoxo

Team TLC walk this afternoon. Lillian heads to Surprise, Arizona later this week with The Romano Duo so we made sure to have a walk with the whole team before she leaves. And look at the amazing cloud show we got to see!!

Brings instant calm. The shoulders and jaw relax. The neck releases. And, if one chooses, whatever it is, can be released and let go.
Not unlike many mornings over the past 17 years. The meaning and depth of the walk has shifted throughout the years. What began as a way to exercise and get fresh air has shifted to be much deeper than that.
I have experienced many mindful walks. Walking slower than usual, listening, feeling, and smelling in silence.
…. from a walk this morning …… Reflections. Cloudy and clear at the same time? Ahhhh. Such is it.
Don’t hold onto it. Let it roll right off your back.
Nature always has a perfect message for us when we stop, be quiet, and listen. I mean, look at those cute little water droplets. How could I not stop, take it in, and capture the moment? …. from a walk this morning …

This side. That side. Neither side holds the answer. That lies within.
….. from a walk with Thomas yesterday afternoon.
Thomas and I spent quite some time in this spot discussing things that were on his mind. Approaching from the other side was a group of wildly loud and profanity spewing kids ranging from a toddler to teenager.
They stopped to throw huge rocks at the geese and goslings. I could not sit idly by and observe this. I felt anger brewing, yet knew this not to be the answer as that must be all these kids know to be behaving in such a manner.
They dispersed from scaring the geese and goslings as I approached. Fortunately, none were injured. I do not remember the exact words that came forth. Yet, I channeled my inner Buddha and asked them to search for the love and kindness in their heart. And I pointed out that the geese are living beings and should not be treated in this way.
Some scattered. Some stood tall and laughed. Yet, if my calmness and non-threatening communication touched just one of them. Then, that’s one. They need a different way modeled. xoxo
As I attempted to fall asleep last night I mulled over and over how I could have handled this differently, perhaps more effectively, and even woke up thinking about it. I finally “woke up” and let it go knowing that I did the best I could do. xoxo

This found me on a walk yesterday morning. Lots of goose quills around, yet have never seen two like this before.
I just had the chance to research online a bit and found that the quill of a goose has long been a preferred writing instrument. Apparently it awakens the imagination and intuition flows. The writer travels through time capturing stories of past, future and present.
I’ll take it! Time to write more. I’ll imagine my fingers are goose quills and that I’m writing like the wind as I type. My fingers and hand begin to hurt after about 5 minutes of handwriting so I just can’t do it.
Today’s Walk With Me theme was all about new beginnings. Brand new buds opening so tender and delicate. Fluffy and sweet goslings eating and being protected by their parents. Spring is a wonderful time for new beginnings …..

The pool is being filled with water!!!! We went to the lodge after dinner just to watch the water pouring in for a few minutes. It takes days for it to get full. So cool!! We get to swim soon. Yay! We also saw the beautiful moon framed by these magnificent trees.

These two have their “hands” full!! 14 babies!!! That’s the most I’ve seen so far! So sweet and cute!

Thomas and I had a wonderful walk in the rain yesterday afternoon!
He’s created an entire new country of the lake with the sandbar as home base. Complete with ports, a capital, currency, military (ducks and geese), and much more. We spent much much time discussing this.
And, squeal!!! Got to see our first duckling!! Cutest lil peep peep sound!! Topped off with a carpet of pink blossoms. They’re even beautiful when the wind blows them from the trees.

Sunset walk with Thomas last night. Perfect timing. Such a beautiful never ending art show from Mother Nature. xoxo ….
Thomas and I visited one of our favorite parks yesterday afternoon to hit tennis balls ….. Except …… Thomas put his racket down right before leaving so we arrived with one racket! Oh well … We made the best of it and had fun anyway! xoxo
