The Arrival

 If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.

This Is Our Job


Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody's business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy.
 ― Thomas Merton

This quote gives me goose bumps..... could you imagine the world if we all LOVED each other?
What a wonderful world it would be!

Wildflower Wonder

  Trying to find the words                        
                              to describe        
                                                    nature's beauty
       Is like trying                                                
           to measure the moon
                                                   with a yardstick

Surrounded By Spice


Ruby-crowned Kinglet - Surrounded by Spice Bush Blossoms
I really LOVE trying to capture the birds

 ― Helen Keller

I caught this same Kinglet showing me his "Ruby crown" - HERE
