Nature Calls Us To Be With Her

**THROWBACK POST**

Day 3 of nature photo challenge … Thomas says that sometimes he doesn’t really want to go for a walk, yet he feels compelled to come along …. And he’s always glad he did. Nature does indeed call us to be with her. She soothes, inspires and refreshes us. xoxo

Thomas and Camilla November 2017 Date Day

November 21 2017:

Thomas and Camilla November 2017 Date Day –

First stop: Washoe Lake. I’ve only been here maybe two other times with no wind. How gloriously beautiful.

I truly needed a deep dose of Mama Gaia today and this was perfect for grounding and processing.

Thomas walked barefoot and dug in the sand. It was perfect for him too. He and Lillian had a huge argument as we were readying to leave.

I sat down, took off my shoes and socks, and slowly buried my feet and hands in the soft, cool sand. I was instantly relaxed and brought into this wonderful moment with Thomas. It’s difficult to even find the words to describe.

Last stop: Ice Cream!! Vegan Coconut Mint and Just Nog for Thomas and Vegan Coconut Mint and Just Chocolate for me! Of all the flavors I’ve ever tasted here, the Coconut Mint tops the list now! Love the texture and flavor – tastes like a Jr Mint candy, only better! We ate our ice cream with the amazing view at Audrey Harris Park.

Thomas also had a half sandwich and I had a cup of potato salad and macaroni salad.

Beautiful and Nature Teaches

October 29 2017:

Beautiful afternoon walk for all of Team TLC this afternoon. So incredibly wonderful! Nature has much to teach about change and that life continues to move forward. There’s no stopping. Nature teaches to enjoy every single moment, for that moment is essentially already gone.

It’s been several days since I’ve been for a walk. I was brought to joyful tears during a quick walk this morning. Joy for the love that Mother Nature so freely shares and that I felt so deeply this morning. Incredibly grateful for the Amazing Grace of Nature.

He dragged this huge tree limb into the lake and it was his boat for about an hour. It was beautiful watching him sail his boat to the middle of the lake. Love, love, love.

The Art Show Trees Produce and Spreading Loving Kindness and Deeply True to His Heart

October 9 2017:

Wonderful solo afternoon walk. These trees. Just love the art show they produce.

I had such a feel good time in the grocery store this morning spreading loving kindness.

Ran into a friend and shared hugs and yummy conversation, got some items off the top shelf for another shopper, and while in line suggested a book to another customer and the cashier.

Plus, came home with good food. Having good food in the fridge and pantry just feels good. Incredibly grateful for natures beauty, the food nature provides, and days like these.
