When We Share

"When we share --
that is poetry in the prose of life.
Sigmund Freud

It is GORGEOUS outside... Asheville is some sort of wonderland. Awfully nice of that bird to come by as I was taking this photograph...

Happy Heart

"A happy heart comes first,
then the
happy face."
~ Shania Twain

The sky is pink and lavender and gorgeous this morning...Airplane, leaving Asheville Airport, rises above the ridge, over snow and gold... My ridge, the cove, is white powder and gold sky...

To Be Loved, As To Love

"Make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt,
where there is despair,
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness,

heavenly Father, grant that I
may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to
to be loved, as to
for it is in
giving that we receive,
it is in
pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying
that we are born to eternal
~ Prayer of
St. Francis of Assisi

amazing day

"i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly
spirits of trees
and a blue true
dream of sky;
and for everything
which is natural
which is infinite which is yes"
e.e. cummings

Happy birthday, Grandma Dorothy...

Color Is Joy

"Color is Joy.
One does not think
One is carried by it."
~ Ernst Haas

The sun suggests immortality...And the clouds... all the answers to every question are there, in the clouds... Spectacular sunrise. Fast moving fog drenches Cove, rising and twirling against a blue sky, clean from the rain.

Imagine It

"You won't get anything
unless you have the vision
imagine it."
John Lennon

Just a glorious sunrise. I walked with the morning chill. Open your heart and let the light in.

"Everything in life that we
really accept undergoes a change."
~ Katherine Mansfield
Here's the dilemma... The sunrise is absolutely gorgeous... blue sky, clouds... bright. I'll have to post another pix. Remarkable contrast.

Fully Understood

"Every man supposes himself not to be
understood or appreciated."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sky is burning red... clouds magnificent. (And the sun hasn't risen even)

After a Storm

Sunset off front porch...
"Birds sing after a storm. Why shouldnt we?"
~ Rose Kennedy
Unbelievable Asheville sky... Storm rinsed out gray. Bold colors of yellow, orange and blue. Spectacular, fast-moving clouds... Going into the sunset business today.

Always a Valley

"Always a valley before a hill."
~ American Proverb
Waiting for the sun in morning chill, listening to Kapono Beamer strum classic "Pua Lilia" on my MP3. Gorgeous... Thinking.... How can life be this full and simple?
