That perches in the

The Best

"It is a funny thing about life;
if you refuse to
accept anything but the best
you very often get it."
W. Somerset Maugham

Here I live, atop my blessed Harmony Ridge, my own Walden Pond, The Best place in the world. That special place where I can connect with my higher self.

Each morning, waiting for the sun to rise, I say my prayers, reflect, and center myself. Secluded, protected, at peace. Alive. Usually the rest of my world is fast asleep as I touch the sky with my heart.

Wake at Dawn

"Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
To melt and be like a running brook
that sings its melody to the night.

To wake at dawn with a winged
and give
thanks for another day of loving."
~ Kahlil Gibran

Sparkle and Shine

"People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in,
their true beauty is revealed
only if there is a light from within."

Live a balanced life.
Learn some and think some

Living Ideas

"Sometimes I imagine colors
as if they were
living ideas,
being of pure
with which to

Nature is not on the surface,
it is deep down."
Paul Cézanne

Yes, I am a creature of habit. Most people are. I find it is so easy to breathe and pray as I wait for the sun. Yogis teach that the breath of life creates the force that sustains awareness.

Clear Perception

"I can never feel certain of any truth,
but from a clear perception
of its beauty."
John Keats

Clear Perception
Atop this ridge
I am the rays of the sun
And the gentle mist 
the sloping wonder.

How do I tell you how full my heart is?

Retreat brings perspective. 
Being present
In Nature's beauty 
Helps calm perception
to come.

Daring to Begin

"All glory comes from daring to begin."
~ Eugene F. Ware

And so we begin. The sky here is a glorious revelation. And I have a camera to record, or at least try to capture, the magnificent view. I am no expert. I just know that I catch my breath whenever I look up or across the horizon.
