Sunset walk with Thomas. Yummy clouds. Yummy sunset. Yummy trees. And yummy company!!! I inhaled the honeysuckle scent until I was honeysuckle drunk. I seriously adore this smell. It is my absolute favorite! Ahhhhh!!!

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!”
Sunset walk with Thomas. Lillian is still recovering from the fall she took on Friday. The cool down has begun.

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!!!!
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.

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
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
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 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.
