"When we try
to pick out anything
by itself,
we find it hitched
to everything else
in the universe."

I remember those days

UGH.
I remember the pressure.

"Get it out of there"!!
Phew.
Beautiful...
Thank you.

He was the goalkeeper.
Thanks, Tim.
Those memories never fade.
Long live soccer!!
Go gentlemen;
The world is your cup.

Body and Soul


"Good for the body
is the work of the body,
and good for the soul
is the work of the soul,
and good for either
is the work of the other.

If Dogs Could Talk


Just finished a great book.
"The Art of Racing In The Rain"
by Garth Stein.
I started it last winter..
just before Mel died.
Had to put it down.
Felt courageous recently and
then...
couldn't put it down!
Thanks, Garth.
Thanks, Mel.

Dreams


"All people dream,
but not equally.
Those who dream by night
in the duty recesses
of their mind,
wake in the morning
to find that
it was vanity.
But the dreamers of the day
are dangerous people,
for they dream their dreams
with eyes wide open
and
make them come true."
D.H.Laurence

Apple or Nikon...or...?


So.
This honeysuckle
is so very fragrant.
The aroma is..
intoxicating.
I wonder
Who will develop
the software
that lets you
enjoy it?
We'll see!
A Happy Wednesday....
With love and hugs.

Good Morning!




It's simply beautiful here
in Northwestern NJ this morning.
Blue skies, puffy clouds, sunshine,
and cool breezes.
Singing birds.
Happy yellow school buses.
Flags waving.
Flowers blooming.
Those are a couple of shots
from my backyard.
I'm having so much fun
with my camera!!
I can't seem to get enough!!
I hope you like them!
Happy Tuesday...
With Love and Hugs.

The Mind


"Just as the light
of the sun
is never destroyed,
but is merely obscured
by clouds and mists,
the pure mind
possessed by all
sentient beings
is merely hidden
by layered clouds
of discursive thinking,
false notions,
and deluded views."
-Hongren

For Mom


Connection with gardens,
even small ones,
even potted plants,
can become
windows to the inner life.
The simple act of stopping
and looking
at the beauty around us
can be prayer.
