Eternity In It


"What nature delivers to us is never stale. 
Because what nature creates has eternity in it."
Isaac Bashevis Singer



And even the flowers take on more color from the sky...

Clear Cool September


Another attempt at a video slide show. I enjoy the creative process and feel there is still a lot more to learn. The sunrise this morning was gold and full of simplicity and the cool September air that I love.


"Don't fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. 
The saddest summary of a life 
contains three descriptions: 
could have, might have, and should have."

~ Louis E. Boone

Much Is Required


"For those to whom much is given, 
much is required." 
All glow
And chilly air. 
Crossed legged, watching.
Give. Receive. 
Give.
With the gift comes responsibility... and joy.

All Nature


"A man is related to all nature."

The Mad Ones

"The only people for me are the mad ones, 
the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, 
mad to be saved, 
desirous of everything at the same time, 
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, 
but burn, burn, burn 
like fabulous yellow roman candles 
exploding like spiders across the stars."
~ Jack Kerouac, On the Road

You Are a Soul


"You don't have a soul. 
You are a Soul. 
You have a body." 
~ C. S. Lewis

Therefore I Am


"I err therefore I am."

Animoto Video

:) Made another 30 second sunrise video this morning. This time using the very user-friendly program on Animoto.



Daily Celebrations

"After all these years, I am still involved in the process of 
self-discovery. It's better to explore life and make mistakes than to play it safe. Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life."

What the Heart Needs


"A friend is what the heart needs all the time."
~ Henry Van Dyke


I am very blessed by the friendships I have made in my life.

Friends are life's finest blessings. "Friend" and "free" are from the same root word; perhaps because you are free to be yourself with a friend.

The Soul Grows


"The soul grows by subtraction, not addition."
~ Henry David Thoreau


Again from my simple wooden deck, I am witness to a new day. It feels like a miracle to me.

Or is it just an ordinary morning where the sun rises, people get out of bed, brush their teeth and go to work. The quick breakfast, the barely exchanged words. Movement.

At first light, the morning glows orange and the fog settles like a good friend. Time brings more light... Hello my friend. A lingering smile, a bowed head, and timeless beauty.

Love of Nature

7:54 AM

"Like music and art, love of nature 
is a common language 
that can transcend 
political or social boundaries." 

Yes, I see the heart in the clouds. 
Do you?

Extraordinary Things

7:36 AM
"When we believe in the impossible, 
it becomes possible, 
and we can do all kinds of extraordinary things."

It is one of those mornings when I have had to wait for the fog to let the sun come through. Is the above photograph worth the wait? 

Wait awhile. Maybe something extraordinary will come along.

While waiting this morning, I chopped a bounty of vegetables then stir fried them with tofu and shrimp. Time always flows nicely when I am in the cooking zone. Cooking is fine time to breathe, pray, and create, yes?

I call this dish Shrimp Tofu Sunrise:

Give Away Love


"It's much easier to be a loving person, to give away love. 
This ability is something you can have control over. 
None of us has the power to make someone else love us. 
But we all have the power to give away love, 
to love other people."

The Beginning of Receiving


"Asking is the beginning of receiving. 
Make sure you don't go to the ocean 
with a teaspoon. 
At least take a bucket 
so the kids won't laugh at you."
~ Jim Rohn
