The tree on the right whispers to the tree on the left, “Hey! Check out this amazing view we get every single day! And it’s always different. The sky, clouds, and sun are so good to us. They deeply love us!”

Such an incredibly beautiful sky this afternoon. I received a special treat from a beautiful friend and this is the amazing sky that blessed me as I left her place and headed to volunteering at the library. Thank you Kathy!!!!

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!

Everything Flows Onward

**THROWBACK POST**

February 15 2016:

Absolutely wonderful sunset walk with Thomas and Lillian. We walked around the entire wetland loop. A FIRST FOR LILLIAN!!! Its between 4 to 5 miles long. We had so much fun giggling, enjoying the views as we walked, and reminiscing about the past ….

Changes, fun, adventures, growth, letting go, more fun, miles of walking, and more adventures. Love, sweet love.

“All things change, nothing is extinguished. There is nothing in the whole world which is permanent. Everything flows onward; all things are brought into being with a changing nature; the ages themselves glide by in constant movement.” -Ovid

Lots of black-billed magpies around lately. One let me snap his picture before he flitted away. This time I took a few minutes to sit, snug with my back leaned against a tree and my feet leaning on a huge rock. Nice and cozy. xoxo

Where I sat for a while this morning. I was so comfy; I didn’t want to leave …. leaned against a tree and surrounded by four huge rocks. Listening to the water, wind, and geese. So wonderful! xoxo

Cold, cold, cold family walk yesterday afternoon …. Walking for me is a poetic act, a communion with Nature, and a contemplation of landscape. I love sharing this with Thomas and Lillian. xoxo

Thomas and I took a walk yesterday morning in the first snow of the season. There’s nothing like the feel and sound of the first snows crunch as you walk through it. xoxo ❄️❄️xoxo

The moon was amazing last night. There was a large halo and the clouds were gently and quickly drifting by the glow. Seriously, I took 555 pictures …. it’s at times like that I wish I had a good quality camera. One day. xoxo

Hypnotic and magical moon last night …. I could not get enough of it. Every second was a different view. xoxo

Spotted this beautiful black cat on the walk this morning and was moved by the beauty and contrast of colors. Then the water as I walked over the bridge caught my attention. Am I looking up or down? I’m blessed and grateful that Nature never tires of shining and showing me. xoxo

Walking and Nature and Love and Exploring

August 2 2016:

Lillian and I had a beautiful walk last night. Walking with Thomas and Lillian inspires me and I’m blessed they feel the same. xoxo

August 3 2016:

Took our nightly read-out-loud-together to the park last night. Also had our family walk and threw the football and frisbee.

Yesterday was a day of intensely sad emotions. I’m blessed this is the way we ended our day. Nature and love are good medicine. xoxo

Sunset walk with Lillian last night. Noticeably cooler with a wonderful breeze. So much joy in exploring trees, leaves, and shadows. Plus we found this cool feather to research and discover its owner. xoxo

Sunset Walk and Slow Down and Uncovering Life’s Truths

September 27 2016:

Sunset walk with Thomas and Lillian last night …. Which held a message I am moved to share.

At the Round Dance Thomas and I participated in on Sunday, we listened to the story of what the grandmas have to teach. Slow down and walk with them. It’s not often that the younger ones do slow down and walk with them. (Very condensed version)

I tied this in with how slowly Lillian walks. I have to consciously make myself slow down to her pace … And many times I find myself way ahead of her, having sped up again.

Last night I set an intention of walking at her pace. I stayed even with her almost the entire walk. Need to do that more often!

Slow down ….. Notice things usually gone unnoticed. Slow down. Notice who or what you may have left behind. Let go of the “things to do” …. For just a little while. xoxo

After dinner walk with Thomas tonight. As we were driving home on Sunday from the Round Dance gathering, he looked over at me and said, “I love you.”

He had such a meaningful experience and I’m so happy I took him with me. Blessed that we take these walks and uncover life’s truths together.

I have no idea why this is sideways. Could have sworn I was holding it in a way to prevent this! Sorry! Thomas answers a question from a friend about sunrise and sunset …. xoxo
