An Ornate Moment in Time




It's such a fleeting moment when the morning sun spills into my room and lights up the bed frame. In fact, it wasn't until just last week when the sun had changed position in the sky where it actually lit my room up like this-it had been indirect light for all of these months.

I appreciate and savor these fleeting moments. Next week at this time, it could very well change again as the earth never keeps still in it's trip around the sun.

The Green Flash-Just Be










Living Presence:

I am abandoned unto you.
You are my strength.
You are my foundation.
I call upon you and am helped.
Fear no longer holds me. You do. And you are love.

~from the book of Centering Prayers

The art of to just be is something that requires a mindfulness and a willingness to commit to a daily practice. It doesn't mean that you beat yourself up every time you don't make it a daily practice. It's just something that you strive for. And, over time, you may find yourself getting a bit better at it.

All you have to do is Just Be.

Make a Wish....




Ever wonder how making a wish before blowing on a dandelion came to be?

Young girls commonly used dandelions in the 1800s for romantic and oracular purposes. It was believed that if you blew on a dandelion and all the seeds flew away, your loved one returned the feelings; if any seeds remained, they might have reservations or no feelings at all. Children would blow on these flowers while thinking hard about the objects of their affection. Eventually this tradition spread to encompass all wishing, romantic or otherwise. (from the article, "How we came to make wishes on these 11 things")

Slow Down and Just Be (the art of)





I think there must be a universal attraction to the various versions of peaceful Buddhas. So many of us are drawn to images and 3D representations of this figure. We all wish we could have that kind of inner peace. Meditation is undermined by the busy, non-stop monkey mind. How does one achieve the so needed empty vessel to experience inner peace? I have no secret trick to offer-except to say that it is a work in progress, it is a daily practice.

The art of to just be is something that requires a mindfulness and a willingness to commit to a daily practice. It doesn't mean that you beat yourself up every time you don't make it a daily practice. It's just something that you strive for. And, over time, you may find yourself getting a bit better at it.

Solid Like a Rock



If this lichen could talk! The stories it could tell. Lichen grows very slowly. Usually an average of 1 mm/year or .0393701 inches/year. Although you have no sense of scale as to how big this rock is, take my word for it, it is boulder-sized. I'm guessing 3 1/2 feet. I was taken by how intensely covered this rock was that it reminded me of a frosted cupcake.

I am celebrating the mundane!
