Beauty Beheld…..

“Although beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, the feeling of being beautiful exists solely in the mind of the beheld.” Martha Beck

Wilted

“Nothing wilts faster than laurels that have been rested upon.” Shelley

“Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation. For they are us, our bodies are only wilted leaves on the tree of life.” Einstein

Once in awhile take some fresh cut flowers from your garden.

How will you be remembered?

On a brick? On a brass plate affixed to a scarred up bar in a tavern? Grave marker? Name in print? Or in some simple, deep way you touched those in your life with your honest, sincere words and love? I have sat at that bar and gazed at that name tag. No one, working there now, knows who Gene was. I bet he was more than a name tag to warrant even one person taking the time to remember him. Somewhere his positive karma is tucked away in the memories and hearts of those he passed by in life and then death.  

Today spread the warmth, the kindness, the love, your joy to the family, friends, neighbors, the clerk, the attendant, the stranger…even just a little bit.

Utopians

“I don’t see much sense in that,” said Rabbit

“No,” said Pooh humbly, “their isn’t. But there was going to be when I began it.

It’s just that something happened to it along the way.”

Winnie the Pooh (A.A. Milne) 1926

Shorelines: Rustic Canvas

There is something that draws my attention in nature and that is signs of disruption, chaos, change, growth amidst decline. Similar to the rustic decay in an urban setting, but the outdoor scenario is set in the most comfortable appealing setting for me. I am, dare I say, at one with these settings. At peace, centered and observant. For some it is a jumbled shoreline with snags, rattlesnakes gnarly trees and some water. For me it is a dozens (or more) little habitats/homes/hideouts; unique rock formations, twisted trees and an inhospitable texture that challenges my presence. All manner of critters inspect my presence. Most I don’t even see. I like that. Of course, if I happen to be wetting a line while taking all this in…well then that is the whole enchilada.
