As the Wild Ones Eat

"The grand show is eternal.
It is always sunrise somewhere;
the dew is never dried all at once;
a shower is forever falling;
vapor is ever rising.
Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming,
on sea and continents and islands,
each in its turn,
as the round earth rolls."
~John Muir

On Being Content

The dictionary defines content as "happy, satisfied".
When we had our dog 'Mellie', I loved when she would
sit outside in the sun or shade and simply enjoy the sights and sounds.
She was content.
When I was outside the other day I happened to look up
at the top of my front yard, and this is what I saw.
A little fawn, content in the grass,
enjoying the sights and sounds.
She reminded me of Mellie.

Great Blue Heron

"Every day I see or hear something
that more or less kills me with delight,
that leaves me like a needle
in the haystack of light."

One Year Ago!

Happy Anniversary to Tiff and Matt!

And how it flies!
I know we've all heard it time and again,
but I'm really surprised at how it really does FLY!
Hard to imagine, but
It was a year ago that we were all packed up and flying
to the Midwest to share the Love.
There was an excitement in the air like I've never experienced.
The marriage of your Daughter, the gathering of long lost family and friends,
party central in a new city
but most importantly,
the dreams come true.
We have grown to love Milwaukee, Wisconsin;
thanks to the little love bugs that call her Home.

Color My World

Zinnias are one of my favorite flowers of Summer.
As the end of August nears,
 my closest family and friends look forward to this coming weekend
as a celebration of Love Supreme!

The Deer


DEER WISDOM  I love the way the doe knows how to go
through the tall brambles: She ambles
her hips first to one side,
then another; tosses her nose high
to sniff the trails of air; and
proffers only a passing glance to
the chickadee on his slanted
branch. She knows the way;
she knows the turn of a hoof print
here, to the right of the wild rose brier;
there, past the tip of the raspberry twig;
she knows the sun even before
his fine arced dome appears
on the eastern horizon, and
she goes that way,
into the still of the dew
into the hills of the morning
in through that path between the thorns
that is so hard for us to see. ~Pat Campbell Carlson

With love and hugs.

I love quiet, sunny mornings on my porch.
Sipping fresh coffee, admiring the birds, the green, 
the blue, and this year, lots of red.
Hope you enjoy the weekend, friends.
