Amazing Tree in Virginia City and A Wild Ride Into the Sunset

March 16 2019:

Aunt Debbie is up from Mississippi visiting The Romano Duo. She always has to visit Virginia City when in the area.

Lillian and I went for a bit to listen to The Comstock Cowboys with them. And I got treated to a really yummy virgin Bloody Mary. Yum!! Thank you Aunt Debbie and Mom n Frank. ❤️❤️❤️

We always love to stop for photos of this view and amazing tree. Love, love, love …

Peace
Beauty
Knowing
Letting go.

The morning walk was the perfect way to begin yesterday. With an afternoon and evening that morphed into absolute wildness and unloveliness.

Sunset walk with Thomas, one of the humans I love the mostest. It was much colder and windier than I anticipated! My ears and hands were frozen. Check out the sky in the photo of Thomas. One side dark, the other bright blue! Wow!

Cold and Beautiful and Relaxing and Rare Sighting and Snow

January 15 2019:

Cold and beautiful walk with Lillian on Sunday. We had such a relaxing time and took lots of photos.

Captured a rare sighting of Lillian’s fairy wings, a fairy shadow in a heart, and an amazing heart reflection. 🧡🧚🏼‍♂️🧚‍♀️🧚🏼‍♂️💛

Got out for the 5 mile walk on Tuesday as the snow was making its way here. So cool to be able to see the snow make its way. Plus, a wee lil mud heart on the concrete …. the remains of a muddy dog paw print. 🖤🐾

Cold and Beautiful and Changes and Love and Warming

November 12 2018:

Cold and beautiful sunset walk today. Time just keeps on a moving and brings her sidekick, changes. Change. The one thing we’re guaranteed to experience.

The beautiful thing about change is that we can change the way we experience change by loving ourself through it. I so Love this Earth dearly!💙🌏💚

Autumn Colors and Good

September 17 2018:

Midday walk with Lillian. It’s cooling down enough that we can have a walk midday now. Wahoo!!!! Here comes autumn!

September 18 2018:

Solo walk this morning. It’s been a year or two since I walked around this entire loop. It felt incredibly good and was deeply inspiring. I visited a few old friends I used to hang out with often …. The trees …. And told them I loved and missed them. Love, love, love!

Beautiful and Bright and Peaceful and Amazing and Grateful

Lillian and Camilla August 2018 Date Day

August 10 2018:

Lillian and Camilla August 2018 Date Day ….

First stop – Fries for Lillian and a colorful fish shaped shortbread cookie for dessert. Coconut vegetable soup for me and a vegan hemp oat cookie for me. So yum!!!

Then shopping for some clothing items for Lillian. Now, a pit stop at home for a snack before closing out the date!!

Next half of date: A drive through our old neighborhood, with a few stops for photos.

Last piece of our date: A just-after-sunset walk. I adore the picture Lillian took of me. I had my eyes closed listening to the beautiful music the leaves sing as the wind blows through them. One of my most loved and treasured sounds.


 

Sunset and Beautiful and Always Heard and Dance Party and Jay and Peace and Clarity

July 22 2018:

Sunset walk tonight. Beautiful sky, good breeze, and an accidental sideways picture of the rocks where I sat for a few minutes.

July 30 2018:

Found while walking Yonce this morning. To be followed by passing a bouncy young girl of about 7 years old walking with her grandma.

As I walked by the young girl, I smiled and said “hello”. To which she quickly said to her grandma, “Grandma, I want that lady to be my mom.” Grandma swiftly replies no and they continue walking.

Sweet girl, I wrap you and your family in oceans of love and pray for grace, courage, and strength for whatever is going on in your lives; whether it be a small or big issue or whether you were even just playing a game. And I pray that your voice is always heard. xoxo …

July 30 2018:

From a walk last week … Created by the sun and a tree! Cool!

Last week was hugely weird so I never got around to posting it.

On another note when it feels like Life just took a big dump on you; it sort of helps to have a dance party with Boogie Shoes by K.C. & The Sunshine Band, Play That Funky Music by Wild Cherry, and You Make My Dreams by Hall & Oates, among a few others!

I shall let myself mourn over that which only ever existed in my imagination, something I was desperately clinging to, feel this crappy moment or two, and let myself know what I need to know, and then ….. I’ll just keep going.

I do have much to be grateful for; yet I do not want to cram these feelings. I shall focus on gratitude once I’m done letting go of this. And, I shall remember how powerful I am.

Wanna help? Have your own dance party or whatever brings forth good feelings and then send some good feelings and prayers this way. Oceans of gratitude …

July 31 2018:

Found today …. Blue Jay or Stellar Jay. Not sure. Yet, what a beautiful message to receive.

July 31 2018:

Sunset walk with Thomas tonight …. Incredibly beautiful and peaceful.

Oh Great Sun.
Clarity,
Bathe me in
Clarity and Knowing.
Thank you.
xoxo
