“Oh, where is the sea?”, the fishes cried, as they swam its crystal-clearness through.
When I’m mindful I realize every action I take is creation as my every decision, every step, influences the rest of the cosmos. WE create the world, together.
Writing a letter or note to be sent through the mail is not really an option for me. I live in Mexico high in the mountains. The nearest post office is an hour’s drive away. My friends and family are mainly in the States. It can take 2-3 weeks for a note to reach them and their returns can take months. I’m used to a yearly Valentine’s Day card which arrives in June.

Writing a letter or note to be sent through the mail is not really an option for me. I live in Mexico high in the mountains. The nearest post office is an hour’s drive away.

I’m so grateful to have internet and often think of my ancestor’s who saw parts of their families leave for new homes across the oceans. Reconnecting by letter could take years.

Watching a formerly serene friend take on more than his time can handle is helping me to slow down and savor life.
Age and experience have proven my resiliency
There is a purpose to denial… “without even knowing it”.
Let it be
Everything is sacred or nothing is sacred. You see God in all things or you cannot see god. To preserve the sacred is not the goal, but to love and honor it in its constant passage and metamorphosis into new energy forms.
Lead with my heart…. Alwsys.
Change happens in its own time. Love is a constant.
Cats, forest, sun
I love the Guthrie quotation. .
It’s great so many of you could post the actual song…

RIPPLE, by the Grateful Dead
“there is a fountain that was not made by the hands of men”
and “if I knew the way, I would take you home”

Because God speaks through humans, I ask to be a channel, holding hands in silence until those words arrive.
I can always listen to praise for trees. Thank you!
And thank you, Ose. Your simple but continual honesty is always inspirational
That’s just the material. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. We all realize how it can be mismanaged!
A dear departed blues musician friend used to say “If it wasn’t for music and B vitamins, I’d be institutionalized”
Ose, thank you and bless you. From reading your shavings through the years I know how you have healed with the rest of us along on the same journey.
