Sunday Serenity: A Walk in Nature

It’s Thanksgiving weekend in these parts and my loyal collie, Reilly, and I are enjoying short walks in nature. The spectacular colour show is particularly heartwarming this year given the times in which we live.

So we lose ourselves to the wonder of it and give thanks for its beauty. After a virtual plague of caterpillars in the spring that decimated the foliage on many of the trees around here it’s reassuring to see how resilient nature is.

Humanity could learn a thing or two from that.

Happy Thanksgiving … 🍁❤️

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.

Thanks for visiting …

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 …

This morning I am reminded that life is fragile. That every moment is a moment into which we must pour our entire heart and believe we are more than we know.

If not this moment … when?

Thanks for visiting,
