Friday, October 30, 2015: Getting Through The Day

Today--if just for today--I will embrace being a social nobody.

I do not have to make a mark on the world.

I do not have to be noticed.

Today I will relax into simply being present,

content to be part of a larger creation.

Saturday, April, 4, 2015 : Nayga Quote (Balance)

(The rocks of Cochise Stronghold, Dragoon Mountains, Coronado NF, Arizona)

                                 In life, don’t be in a hurry.

                               Just walk slowly but surely

                   and you will certainly encounter unexpected,

                         perplexing, dumbfounding moments

                                       in your journey

                                                           …..Jehan Fostanes Nayga

Thursday, October 9, 2014: In the Beginning

        "In the beginning there was nothing and God said 'Let there be light', and there was still nothing but everyone could see it."           

                                                                                         Dave Thomas

          We all need our own beginnings, our own creations. I was entranced by the textures of this lamp shade and delighted in the photographic result. It will always remind me of that first moment, the Big Bang, God's first creation when everything gets set in motion.

          We forget sometimes that creation is not static or complete, but something that can begin again and again. We forget that, rather than be carried along by what is already in our life and in our world, we have the power to ignite our own spark, a new beginning of the reality we live.

Wednesday, July 16, 2014: (Quote on Beauty, by Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Remnants of a bird's wing washes up on shore and the waves tease it into curls.

         "Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful,

                             for beauty is God's handwriting."

                                                                              ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
