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.
"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." ~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
"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 kissing 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.
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.
