“Hold out your hands to feel the luxury of the sunbeams. Press the soft blossoms against your cheek, and finger their graces of form, their delicate mutability of shape, their pliancy and freshness. Expose your face to the aerial floods that sweep the heavens, “inhale great draughts of space,” wonder, wonder at the wind’s unwearied activity.
Pile note on note the infinite music that flows increasingly to your soul from the tactual sonorities of a thousand branches and rumbling waters ….. I am sure that if a fairy bade me choose between the sense of sight and that of touch, I would not part with the warm, endearing contact of human hands or the wealth of form, the mobility and fullness that press into my palms.” – The Faith of Helen Keller
Walk with Thomas earlier this evening … Just got to see how this picture turned out .. LOVE it! Looks like a giant lit match or giant glow ball on a stick! HA! It’s a lamp post with the sun lined up right on top of it!
LOVE looking for LOVE everywhere we go!
Came across a dead bird. Thomas said we had to have a funeral for it. He found a stick to push it into the bushes. I said some kind words about Mr. Birds soul … and we carried on … then we came across the big heart rock in one of these pictures! xoxo
Honeysuckle …. I LOVE HONEYSUCKLE!!!!!!!!!! Intoxicating!

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.

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!)

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.

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 .. 🙏💙💚💙💚💙💚🙏

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!! 💛🌸

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 …

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 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 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!💙🌏💚
