Thanks to the butterflies, the flowers they love,
and my ability to enjoy them!

The birthday celebrations for November have now passed.
They snuck up quietly and passed quickly!
My heart is swollen with gratitude for my family
and friends that helped to fill my heart with joy!
With Thanksgiving around the corner,
I hope people worldwide have the Love in their hearts
that I have in mine.
The photo above was taken of a very special card!
Thank you, thank you!

I ask people why they have
deer heads on their walls.
Because they're such beautiful animals,
they say.
I think my Mother is attractive.
I'll keep her in photographs!

To my Mom

Thank you, Mom.
You gave me life.
You gave me dreams.
You gave me Love.

but the fire is within."
Have a beautiful weekend!

Meadow Lake

My morning ritual starts with a walk.
Aside from the noise of pick up trucks,
and an occasional crow or two,
it's pretty quiet.
I'm surprised that so many people
in my little town
drive noisy pick up trucks.
But. It's OK.
My destination is quiet, and peaceful.
Light filled, and memory filled.
And usually, a Blue Heron.
And wildflowers.
And grapes.

MOMA and a Surprise!

So our little rolling stone has gone back home.
It was a whirlwind of a weekend for her.
And for us.
Her poet husband created the greatest card
and surrounded her with the greatest Love.
A huge surprise!
We joined them at MOMA,
followed by a fun lunch,
and created a memory we'll all keep close to our hearts
for a very long time.
Thanks, Matt!

Here's to happy surprises!

Climb Every Mountain....

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. 
The winds will blow their freshness into you and the storms their energy,
 while cares will drop off
like autumn leaves,
As age comes on,
 one source of enjoyment after another is closed,
but nature's sources never fail."
