Watching these little ones every day from the kitchen window we are reminded how expectation seems to rule our lives, whoever we are. It’s enough to give one pause……


Softening into resistance, anxiety and fear dispels their power and I can breathe.


Aligning yourself with your Self dissolves all difficulty and opens the path in front of you.


Infinity is a hidden source of wonder-colors, lifeforms, and thoughts. Where will it take you?


On these frigid days the buds know what is coming. Glory, bursting forth, pink & white, radiance, and contentment.

scarlet winter

Ambling about the yard I came upon flashing red berries amid the gentle snow…..I had totally forgotten them. They are joyful even on a grey day.


Cool, damp, green refreshment during a heatwave


Even toads like a cool abode. Just hanging out in the quiet cool moments of the early morning.


Hidden moments glimpsed between the rigorous accomplishing ones….this is a gift bestowed upon each individual being. May we use them to arouse a peaceful heart.

Missing you

Every time I leave I miss you more and more….and then I remember that I carry you in my heart always.
