Capturing and Grounding in Nature’s Beauty with Fire Breathing Bubbling to the Surface Smelling of Roses

June 3 2019:

Absolutely gorgeous and beautiful sunset walk with Thomas yesterday. Just adore the way the trees and the sun play together. Love capturing their beauty.

Sunset walk yesterday …

Found a quiet shaded spot, took the shoes off, stood barefoot in the grass, touched the grass with my fingers ….. breathed it in and breathed it out.

June 5 2019:

After sunset walk with Lillian last night. Almost missed it!

June 7 2019:

From the walk yesterday.

Thank you Mother Nature. Thank you.

When one receives news that brings forth fire breathing anger, she is there to let you know it’s okay to let yourself feel this old and new anger. Feel it. Let it all bubble to the surface. Scream. Sob. Cuss. I will help you release it.

Deeply grateful to Mother Nature. Ahhhhh ….. Here’s to a new day! So good at what she does .. 🙏💙💚💙💚💙💚🙏

Lillian and I had an appointment on Thursday and these beauties surrounded the building and parking lot. The smell!!!! Divine!!!

From a quick walk Friday night.  I very much enjoy the challenge of aligning the trees, and branches, and sun. Just love how the sun, trees, and bushes model for me. They’re the best!! 💛🌸

The scene Saturday night. Just had time to look at the photos I took! Wow!! Mother Nature can be intensely dramatic!! And gorgeous. And beautiful. And mesmerizing. 💗💗💗

Grounding in the Beauty of Nature

May 28 2019:

It’s been too many days without a walk. Finally. And since it’s been several days, I stood in this spot, under this tree, with this view. I removed my shoes and let my bare feet touch, skin to earth. I bent down and touched the ground with my fingertips. Grounding. Natures cure for whatever ails. Thank you Mama Nature. 🙏💚💙💚💙💚💙🙏

Couldn’t help myself.

Went for another walk after visiting Jack & Mittens, the two cats I care for when their human is out of town.

It was incredibly peaceful and beautiful. Ahhhhh …

Deeply grateful to Mother Nature for the beauty during the long walk today.

And deeply grateful to the young man sitting in the shade with his guitar playing and singing The Beatles She Loves You.

I wanted to take a photo. I wanted to tell him thank you. I wanted to stand and listen (and dance). Yet, I didn’t want to interrupt the zone. It brought pools of liquid love and gratitude to my eyes as I continued walking and taking it in.

Keep doing what you’re doing young man. Keep doing it. And, I thank you! 🙏💞💞💞🙏

Walks of Cold and Walks of Warmth with Sun Shadows of Selfie Treasures

April 30 2019:

Sunset walk with Thomas yesterday. Beautiful. But. Brrrrr …. Cold!!

May 2 2019:

Lillian and I visited the Wilbur May Arboretum this afternoon. So incredibly peaceful. Such beauty. Squirrels, robins, butterflies … quiet … What a treasure …. 💜💜💜  Amazing shadows too. The sun posed beautifully!! Loads of fun playing with photographing the sun! 

Every time I went to take a picture, the camera was reversed. I figured it must be trying to tell me something, so I took lots of selfies!! That’s the most solo selfies I’ve taken in a years time!! I’ve taken enough solo selfies to last the rest of the year! Ha! ….. We ran into a photographer looking for butterflies. She found us instead! And took a few photos of us! Ha! 

 

 

 

Sensed it in My Bones

April 29 2019:

It was the long walk today. What a beautiful walk it was. Light, free, joyful. Listened to the birdsong. Felt the warmth of the sun and the lovely breeze. Smelled lilacs. Tasted my true self. Sensed newness in my bones. What a beautiful walk it was.

Sun Wishes

Went for a walk
Made a wish
Drew in a breath
Pursed my lips
Blew the wish
On waves of wind
To the loving
Embrace of the sun.

Having fun with these dandelion photos! Just love em!

Even the Wind Likes to Read While Beautiful Buds Listen in the Shadows of Us and Birdsong

April 23 2019:

A book.
An egret.
A flowering bush.
All discovered on the walk yesterday. When I came across each one, I was moved to stop and take in the scene. Most especially, the open book with pages being turned by the ghostly wind. Even the wind likes to read. 😘📖💨🌸💖 (To clarify, the book is not mine … it was simply sitting on the rock with its pages being turned by the wind .. Struck me as beautiful!)

April 25 2019:

It was the long walk today. Will need to start getting out there earlier. When it warms up here, it don’t mess around!! Loved these beautiful buds!!

April 25 2019:

Sunset walk with Thomas … Nice and warm with a light breeze. Beautiful and peaceful. Largest family so far … 23 or more goslings!! He’ll let me take a photo of his shadow. I’ll take whatever I can get!

April 26 2019:

Today’s walk. Sat for a bit underneath this tree. Listened to the birdsong and the ducks and the geese. Felt the silky air against my skin. Smelled the smells. Haven’t done that in way too long. Ahhhhhh …
