Curious Photograph

I was visiting the train station (Union Station) in Portland, Oregon. I noticed a large photo on the wall and particularly the car seemingly driving across the image with a blur suggesting motion, but no driver behind the wheel. Hmm?

Happy Halloween! Safe & Sane

Keep the kids safe (big holiday for auto/pedestrian accidents & drunk driving!) Enjoy this transitional holiday from a mystical, spiritual, physical perspective.

‘From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!’
Scottish Saying

Boo!

‘Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.’

Balance

“We come into this world head first and go out feet first; in between, it is all a matter of balance.”

“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.”

Paul Boese

How did….

all this happen? The layers, the shapes, the contours and textures are visible. How did that renegade rock arrive at that spot to take in the view? Clinically, scientifically it can all be explained. But, the landscape of the mind is cumbersome, each layer being a significant portion of life. The erosion, the abrasion, burden of weight is obvious. So is the strength under pressure.

‘There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth.’ ~Rumi

Perceptions…….

Is there a rainbow or isn’t there? Perhaps a better frame of mind, right now, is that something unique is there and in its totality it is all beautiful.

Count your blessings, instead of your troubles. You attract more blessings by acknowledging the ones you already have, no matter how small they may seem.
