Sunday Serenity: Bend with the Wind

Autumn is upon us and change is in the wind.

Whenever I find myself feeling overwhelmed by the challenges of our times I bring my thoughts back to nature. I look at this nearby tree, for instance, and consider what it must have witnessed and the storms it must have weathered over 100 years (+/-) of its existence.

Nature can help us put things in perspective. If we’re paying attention it can teach us lessons of resilience and adaptability. How to flow with the seasons, weather the storms, and bend with the winds of change.

Nature knows how to take care of itself. We, as living beings, are an extension of nature that appears to have lost this knowing. We need to return to the natural world and tune in to its healing frequencies.

It costs nothing but time.

Sunday Serenity: Puddle Ducks

In a chaotic world there is joy to be found in the small things.

Watching a family of ducks enjoying an afternoon swim is a delight to the eye and the heart.

Their puddle; my momentary paradise.

Promenade

Promenade 1200 WM

My eyes always brighten at the sight of a beautiful swan. It is grace, beauty and dignity rolled into a feathery white package that says look, but don’t touch.

We could all learn a thing or two about setting healthy and appropriate boundaries from our friend the swan.

Unfolding

Mauve 1200 WM

I wish the sun was on the horizon today. Unseasonably high rainfall and an extended period of freezing rain are in the forecast and I find this stressful. Still, this too shall pass and this image will hold me until the next beautiful sunrise.

Everything is temporary. Enjoy the unfolding.

Thanks for visiting …
