Renewal...



I may have posted this photo once before, but it's such a wonderful graceful image, full of light for me, and after the last post, I felt I needed some levity here. A friend just called to tell me she just had the feeling that I needed to be with her right now. I am so grateful for angels in the world. It is a beautiful, cool, bright, sunny day here...

Letting go...


It knocked the wind right out of me.
A mile through the woods,
and I still couldn’t catch my breath.
If I’d eaten breakfast,
I would have been puking, too.
A couple more good hills and I gathered myself,
though perhaps gathered is not the right word.
A couple more good hills,
and I emerged from my gut,
into my awareness, grounding a bit.

The grace of the trees,
the humility of stone,
the presence of the insects,
the constancy of water,
the knowing of the sky,
the wisdom of the sun -
- all these kept me
from coming undone.

We are all but still one,
one, but still all.
Perhaps when I lose you,
I somehow gain me.

He's written a fascinating historical biography about his family, which you can check out at: JosephGatins.blogspot.com. I have been picture editing and designing photo pages and cover layout. Here is a taste...

Cheer Up Honey Pie...

Went to visit a friend in Athens yesterday, and we stayed at another friend's house a bit outside of town. It's a wonderful 200 year old house, as you can see, and a very peaceful, wonderful place to rest awhile. Thank you Sally!
