Morning

"Outside the open window 
the morning air is 
all awash with angels.
 Love calls us to things of this world."

Dreams

"I just wish people would realize that anything's possible, if you try; dreams are made, if people try."

Golden dawn. Fog. A new day. Full of possibilities. What will you create? Photo

Truth

"Great is truth 
Fire cannot burn it nor water drown it."
~ Alexandre Dumas

Now everything is pure gold. Everywhere. I find myself identifying with this nearby cloud. Gliding Light...


Creativity is Big Joy that bursts like the sunrise: (Photo),

Light

"Learn the craft of knowing how
to open your 
heart
and to turn on your creativity.
 There’s a 
light inside of you."
 ~ Judith Jamison

Watching fog rise & swirl. Listening to the birds sweet. Asheville blanketed. Gold radiates the ridge. (Photo) ...All gold light. It hurts my eyes it is so beautiful.

Written Large

 Took an early morning hike up to Black Balsam to watch the sunrise.


 "Every secret of a writer’s soul,
every experience of his life,
every quality of his mind,
is written large in his works.
"




Balance. & Love = Internal & External Oneness


My heart is full of love.
My steps are small but steady.
I move with aloha.

Life

"On life's journey faith
is 
nourishment,
virtuous deeds are a shelter,
 
wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night.
If a man 
lives a pure life,
nothing can destroy him."
Buddha

Fullness


 So the crescent moon & Venus decided to show up, too.
 Embrace. 
 Magnificent.
"You pray in your distress and in your need: would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance."

Heart

 "The human heart yearns
 for peace and love and freedom. 
 Peace heals, elevates, and invigorates the spirit." 


This morning I painted in the garden as I prayed and waited for the sun. The words resonate with focused intent.

I had fun.

Life

 "Stop and consider! life is but a day;
A fragile dew-drop on its perilous way
From a tree’s summit."



Good morning, gentle dawn. I drink you like nectar. (Photo)
And my sun, ❤ goes from red to radiant gold so the mist twinkles like stars.
Sunrise. Spellbound, I surrender. (Photo)

Love

"Giving love consciously through thoughts,
words, and deeds will help you become
your own force field of love.
It will be impossible for it not
to attract that which is like itself."
John Marks Templeton

A beautiful new day, full of creative light. Share your light... & smile! (Photo)

I have a maple growing, thriving in my front garden. I imagine future years, sitting under the tree, watching the sun rise. Until then, this morning I can get the fledgling tree with my sun.

AND this Rascally Rabbit escaping from my garden. (Or is it just shamelessly posing?)

Magic of the Mind


"The power of Thought,
 the magic of the Mind!"


The magic sky fills me with such hope. My mind is all magic this morning: Find the good. It is there if you look for it.

Buck Moon!

The full moon is so bright, a rooster outside has confused it for the sun. 

Why Buck Moon?

Native Americans kept track of seasons, giving names to recurring full moons. According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, July is the month of the Full Buck Moon. Bucks grow new antlers at this time. This full Moon was also known as the Thunder Moon, because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month.

My watercolor of the buck moon.

So Have a Miraculous Day


"Good morning, this is God. 
I will be handling all of your problems today.
 I will not need your help. 
So have a miraculous day."
~ Wayne W. Dyer
