awakening

the world is awakening….i am awakening….out of darkness the newest life emerges, and into darkness the roots of longing will guide the life of beauty

The freshness of a simple morning can make all the chaos and bewilderment recede. I am renewed each day.

I am preparing to drive over to the coast today so I am busy gathering all the things we need and making a list for the market. I had to check the newly planted seedlings in the herb garden to make sure they weren’t wilting in the sunshine, and I come upon this exquisite perfection. It’s a tree peony and just gorgeous. The rest of my chores had to wait while I gave her her due.

Remember to pay attention and be here now.

as the wheel of the year turns, everything is new again….first meal on the porch, and I can see the perfection of my world…

The first to hear the call of the heart every year, blessed little beauties.

Before the neighborhood is filled with the sounds of reving snowblower engines, the cardinals are singing, the juncos wear their tuxedos to dine at the feeders and the dogs leap into the snow with more elation that you can imagine. This is a perfect morning.

Still Here

Change, fallow days, wondering. Autumn is slipping closer to winter, that hibernation of the soul, and so, a gentle walk along a country road reminds me of the exquisite connection between all things.
