Blossom Time


Spring is a wonderful time of year for its many beautiful blossoms. Already that time has passed, though I’m hoping their memory will be revived with an abundance of healthy fruit come this September.

We are blessed with many lovely fruit trees on the farm, and with my iPhone handy I was able to capture many images during their time of full bloom. These are plum blossoms.

Looks rather like a painting, doesn’t it?

Upkeep of the farm and a focus on family history (see In So Many Words ~ Shedding Light on the Family Tree) since the beginning of the year has my energies directed in many areas right now, which means my posts to this blog have been impacted somewhat.

Thank you for visiting and being a supportive part of my journey.

Be well …

Throwback Thursday: Glendalough


When I’m feeling distraught or unsettled about life beyond my control I turn my heart to that which brings me joy. We used to travel a lot and one of my fondest memories belongs to a couple of hours spent wandering through the ruins of an ancient monastary at beautiful Glendalough in Co. Wicklow, Ireland.

Recently, and to my great delight, I’ve learned it’s possible some of my Irish ancestors who emigrated to North America in the 1800s originated in this area.

Beyond my appreciation for its obvious beauty perhaps this explains my feelings of connection.

During these intense and challenging times I return to this memory to bring peace to my heart and to help me be a source of peace for others.

It’s what the world needs now … that and love, sweet love.

Be well and thanks for visiting …

Sunday Serenity: Scorpio Sunrise

I’m fortunate to live in a location where I can see clearly the sunrise each morning from my studio window. The light-play on the horizon at early dawn tells me how the light might unfold and when the magic moment hits I grab my camera and run outside to capture it. This morning the last sunrise under the sign of Scorpio for 2021.

It’s a blessed way to start the day, and I am grateful.

Thanks for visiting …
