This too shall pass.
The universe for me today is offering up the beauty of music. Melodies surging through my consciousness — at first adagio and then allegretto. — capturing my soul.
I no longer need the incessant ‘chatter’ in my mind. Quiet now thoughts. Peace be within.
Being graced with a positive spirit in very ‘taxing’ times.
Love. Loving relationships. Loving nature. Loving life. Loving Spirit.
Gratefulness has changed my consciousness and now I greet the day with openness to what all is possible with spirit and more often that not, I am smiling with the new day.
Late last summer, I awoke to the sunrise from my oceanside Airbnb on the Santa Barbara coastline in California. The rising sun spun shimmering beams of light across the pinwheel shaped, pastel-drenched clouds reflected in the waters of the Pacific. I felt the excitement and joy of a child; it felt so new. It was new. It was a new day. I was giddy and grateful for this beginning.
Today I am struggling with a loss of someone whose been gone for a while in my life. I have been in denial. He didn’t die, he just didn’t want me. I am not exactly certain why I am feeling sad about it now; perhaps there is some meaning in it being April. Don’t know?
I reached out this weekend and called my mother-in-law. She lives alone and has limited tech skills to communicate virtually. We had a wonderful conversation and both our hearts were lifted as we signed off with an ‘I love you’.
Thank you. I will.
Samuel: I have driven through the Smoky Mountains but I have never been to Pigeon Forge. Your descriptive ‘share’ of your sunset experience is beautiful and solidifies my resolve to return and experience the Smoky Mountains more intimately.
How extraordinarily creative of you to work through grief of the loss of your husband consciously and artfully. I am certain at times it was/is beyond difficult despite being busy. I am sure it was cathartic. May you be well and shine in all your artistic endeavors honoring you and honoring your late husband.
Maryke: Yes, this is so true for me as well. Thankfulness is a much aligned “friend” of gratefulness. They’re holding hands. Blessings.
Pilgrim: Lake Michigan is my favorite of the Great Lakes. When the sun starts to sink below the horizon, it seemingly begins to lose its round shape until it flatten out and is no more. Then the sky erupts in a show of nature, so very generous, as you say. . Yes, it is a shared time across the world. Blessings.
Sunnypatti: Yes, healing is a wonderful way to frame the powers of a beautiful sunrise or sunset. Thank you for sharing that. Blessings.
Blessings, Mica. Thank you.
Thank you and blessings to you during these ‘trying’ times. Peace be with you and yes, we are not alone.
Gorgeous. Thank you, Maryke.
Pilgrim. Blessings to you, my friend.
Maryke: Amazing photographs. I loved your photo from yesterday too. It’s quite a gift to capture nature and do ‘art’ photography as well.
