Peaceful with a Heavy Dose of Wonderful Delight

November 4 2019:

Lovely walk with Lillian this afternoon. Felt incredibly peaceful and delightful after staying in just about all weekend proofing the Kindle version of Words of Alchemy. It will be in its final state by end of this week.

Changing and Shedding with Brilliant Blackbirds and Scarred Trees

September 29 2019:

Walk before dinner. Leaves are changing colors, trees are shedding. So it begins.

From a walk yesterday. I adore the changing colors of the leaves.

Beautiful walk with Lillian this afternoon. Peaceful with beautiful colors, crows, blackbirds, and scarred trees to keep us company.

Went for a walk with Thomas yesterday afternoon. Brilliant colors to enjoy. I love when the egrets visit. They look incredibly graceful.

Three days of respite began yesterday afternoon. Began the time with this walk, then took the night off from sitting in front of the laptop. Next up, was a long hot soak in the tub. Ending with uninterrupted reading in bed before drifting to sleep. Today, I’m on the 6th read aloud of Words of Alchemy to catch wee errors before submitting to the book designer. Hopefully, just one more time!

Taking the Day Off With Different Beautiful Colors Alongside Peaceful Magic

September 2 2019:

After dinner walk yesterday. Sat for a bit this time. Beautiful colors and magically peaceful.

September 3 2019:

Much needed and welcome walk yesterday after dinner. I did something I haven’t done in years. I took the day off … off of social media, off from working on my book, off from Meeting the Authors, off from packing, off from everything (except making food for all three of us). And ….. read almost all day long. 💜 The sun and clouds made amazing sky art!

Magical and breathtaking walk with Lillian yesterday.

From an after dinner walk on Thursday. Trying to get different views as I’m usually drawn to the same views for photographing.

Magical Walks of Facing Fears Surrounded by Golden Light

August 26 2019:

Wonderful walk with Lillian yesterday. The breeze was incredibly yummy!! Thanks to all for the magical feedback on the poem I posted yesterday. I was extremely happy to get to work on my book this past weekend!!!

Oh, and Dear Tree, I love you!! …. And, a first for Lillian. She has never stepped off the path in this place due to the downward slope as she has balance and depth perception issues. She did this time! So she could make a great photo!!

August 27 2019:

Beautiful golden hour walk last night … hot, hot, hot. Yet,it was an amazing walk. May opt for a swim tonight instead of a walk.

Beautiful walk with Thomas last night.

 

Walks of Love with Sun Angels as the Wind Blows

August 20 2019:

Lots of love in last nights walk with Lillian. It took us double the time as we passed 4 neighbors, and I’m a wordy one!!

Lessons in leaning into the sadness of moving soon. After nearly 50 years on this amazing and beautiful Earth, I have learned (and am still learning) to lean into these times. Embrace them with open arms. For without this feeling, would not that mean that we hadn’t had a wonderful and beautiful 4 years of living here, of getting to know our neighbors, of sinking into the comfort of it?

I embrace this change as it carries with it much positive and good. Plus, we’ll only be about 10 minutes from here and can come back for walks anytime.

I felt a shift and lift today. Ahhhhhh ….. Gratitude returned to my heart and thoughts. Beautiful indeed. 🙏🏼💗💗💗🙏🏼 (We have about 3 weeks before we move …. we’re moving into a new construction community, so hopefully no more delays!)

August 21 2019:

Sunset walk for me yesterday. Beautiful sun angel in some of the photos and cloud angels in others. Magical ….

Sunset walk with Thomas tonight. Felt incredibly refreshing with a light breeze. Yum!
