Endless Possibilities

Like the varied pebbles on the beach, life brings us endless possibilities each day for us to choose from . Each day is a gift and awaits our creativity to carve out the positive.

Perfect Timing

If you happened to be in the Great Smokies this weekend, you experienced perfect timing. Gorgeous colors revealed as the chlorophyll decreases in the leaves. Interesting enough those colors are present all the time but we don't see them till fall due to the biology of plant metabolism. I like to think that sometimes people are like leaves in the summer, sometimes they have wonderful aspects that are not immediately apparent. Until Fall or some pivitol event , then their true colors shine through. Take the time to enjoy the change of season and perhaps to look with new eyes beneath the surface of those around you. You may discover something invaluable that was hidden by the greens of summer.

Being closer to the Stars

"The limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible" Arthur C Clarke

During the evenings that our Lady of the Night is less visible , La Luna, the stars are clearly visible from this rural place, no matter what the season , my eyes scan the horizon and always settle on the Pleiades, the seven sisters, home.

We choose

"We live in two worlds.....the world into which we were born, and the other world that was born within us. Both may be a blessing or a curse . We choose. " Celtic Druid homily

I spent the first part of October traveling across the northern plains. What is striking is how vast they are. What is more striking is the strength that I imagine that powers the people who have inhabited these areas. Fields that go forever. Endless silence punctuated by the wind, geese in formation, and the sound of the train whistle in the night.

Morning visitors

A sweet little family crossed my path on the journey. I have to admit to hiding behind the car to catch this shot. I believe they knew I was there. ; )

The Value of the Journey

The Value of making a journey. Everyday is a journey sometimes small , sometimes large. The physical journey our legs carry us upon is interweaved with with new insights and perspectives gained as our feet carry us forward.
