Get to Understanding

"The way we're going to get to understanding
is for each man to open his
heart
and open his
mind
and look in himself as he looks at his neighbor."

Great Blessings

"All the great blessings of life
Are present in my thoughts today."
~ Phoebe Cary


Cold outside, but this will be my first clear sunrise in days. Very happy... This golden moment, before my sun crests, is pure thanksgiving. All problems are replaced with joy and gratitude. It is the most amazing gift... And now, all I need do is breathe in her golden rays...

and then coming back.
That's real glory. That's the essence of it."

Wingless Flight

For @primalmarks, waiting in Texas...


"Love changes darkness into Light
and makes the
Heart take a wingless flight."
~ Helen Steiner Rice

It is truly lovely here this morning. So enjoy watching the colors of sky change; only natural to offer prayers to the sky. ...Magnificent colors! Red sky. Glorious clouds. Wowee! ...Need a wider lens. Heart overflowing with clouds.
coming...
...Flock of birds greet the sun (zoom in to see them) ...

I Rediscover

"I invent nothing. I rediscover."
~
Auguste Rodin



There's gold along the ridge; the sun is coming, with it, the perfect sounds of morning. ...I love how the sun sparkles behind the tree branches just before it crests the ridge. Fireworks of gold and orange.

Divine Things

"Human things must be known to be loved:
but Divine things must be
loved to be known."
~
Blaise Pascal




Red glow. Sun close to crest. Mist, fine. Chilly: ...Yes, I am now playing with the sun: ...Bathed in sunlight. Me & Kolo: ...Trying new things. "stepping lightly & feeling no pain;" out of my comfort zone, for sure. Highly recommend the leap.

Ongoing Guts

"Everything is writable about
if you have the ongoing guts to do it,
and the
imagination to improvise.
The worst enemy to
creativity is self doubt."
~
Sylvia Plath




Roosters crow & crows fly against sky. Waiting for my sun. ...
My heart is on overdrive.

My Heart

"I will greet the day with love in my heart."
~ Og Mandino


Not a cloud in the sky & the horizon glows orange to back light my Pisgah Forest ridge...
Lucky. Have so many blessings. I count them as I walk around my garden, waiting for the sun...
Wow. That was a good one.

Please Notice

"I urge you to please notice
when you are happy,
and exclaim or murmur or think
at some point,
'If this isn't nice,
I don't know what is.'"
~
Kurt Vonnegut
Man Without a Country

The ridge glows golden and I (with the gentle mist and fog) wait for the sun: Morning aloha...
All golden light. Blazing... This morning's sun is honey fire, creative turbo light...

Interpret My Dreams

"I was not looking for my dreams to interpret my life,
but rather for my life to interpret my dreams."
~
Susan Sontag


The clouds are a whirling magic display. Rising, moving beauty... Now orange blazes the sky. More! Spectacular cloud & light show here on the ridge this morning. Absolutely remarkable.

Journey

"Success is not a destination; it is a journey. The happiest people I know are those who are working toward specific objectives. The most bored and miserable people I know are those who are drifting along with no worthwhile objectives in mind."
~
Zig Ziglar




The ground is soaked with rain. The wind is whipping. Trees are dancing wildly. Chilly rain and gradual light... Tremendous wind. Glorious sky!

Leap

"The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you, and you don't know how or why.”
~
Albert Einstein

Someone... an angel perhaps... scrawled swirls of orange doodles on this morning's hazy gray sky... Maybe it's the jet trails of her angel wings?

Harmony

The clouds are a rainbow of colors reaching across the horizon...

"Happiness is when what you think,
what you say, and what you do are in harmony."
~
Mahatma Gandhi

Hopeful Gardeners

"Help us to be the always hopeful gardeners of the spirit who know that without darkness nothing comes to birth, as without light nothing flowers."
~
May Sarton


Dawn is purple pink. The color of iris dreams... The horizon radiates red where the sun will rise. There's haze, clean air, and promise... And then my sun just hangs there, glowing orange gold. A mirage, a talisman... The close up is stunning, but today, let me pull back as far as I can because the mountain contours are a resting lover...

True Joy

"Without kindness there can be no true joy."
~
Thomas Carlyle


First thought this morning, I woke up with the notion of radiating kindness to others, like the sun... Then watched this sunrise. :) Aloha!

Overwhelmed that the sun has reflected my heart's thoughts with kind rays that extend out with brilliant love...
