Late Lunch

As I headed outside, a turkey vulture swooped low beside my front door. It made me stop in my tracks. But as I moved forward, there was something amazing just sitting there waiting for me. This majestic creature was sitting there ~ a Hawk playing with a garden snake He knew I was there. He…

Crisp Real & Raw

Days like today call out to me to be one with nature.  The sky so blue and clear, the sun light bounces off the water and the contrast of the dark wood of the trees jump at a chance to entertain me!    The morning light gives an extra special sheen to everything it touches….

Fire Sign

In a search to understand my love of shapes and textures in nature, I am naturally drawn to the trees.   There are some that just disappear in and among the trails that I hike.  Then there are others that continue to speak and draw me in. When you research horoscopes, I fall under the Aries…

Majestic

These past few years have been filled with self discovery; and with self discovery comes acknowledging what calms me, what inspires me and who is my authentic self.   Growing up I was a dancer and identified as such.   I never participated in skiing or any kind of organized sports.   But a dog was always apart…

Dance with nature

I have hiked this path many times and it calls to my soul.   Today was different, the snow fell yesterday and the sun was shining through the trees so off we went.   This was an adventure to say the least, tucked back in the woods the pathways were covered with snow and the deeper…

Be Do Love!

The latest buzzwords these days are finding your truth or your authentic self. Numerous podcasts go on at length about these topics – I never understood that.    But in the quiet of my days, whether journaling or hiking in the woods I have found what makes my heart sing and it is at the…

Fairies run free!

Clarity comes when you quiet the brain! Sitting high on the rocks deep within the woods, my heart dances and my brain, the to-do list of the day disappears.   The abunance of the nature that surrounds me fills me with peace.   Regrounding my soul is where I needed to be today!   This time in…

One in a million

What are the chances that I stumbled upon this beauty, in the vassness of the beach on a warm October day. Unique, one of a kind in the randomness of the shells on the beach. When lost in the hustle and bustle of life to take a weekend and embrace the day.  No alarm clock,…

Clarity and Reflection

I have always been able to channel my energy and stay focused or so I thought.   I am the best multi-tasker;  able to get alot of shit done.  But I never realized that I never gave myself down time to relax and gain clarity of focus, clarity of vision and embracing the day.     In…

Sunshine!

I fill my world with color.   I am left-brained, creative, intuitive and expressive.   I see contrast and can capture rare moments that might pass others by.     My soul is refreshed and renewed in the sunshine and apart of this is my favorite flower ~ the sunflower! I jump at the opportunities to capture pictures…

August morning

The white trail called us forth this morning.   The weather was cooler and no humidity.    This trail embraces and hugs the lake I dubbed as my “happy place”.  Maggie was grateful to be out exploring the scent. The boats all sat waiting for their owners to dance with them on the water.  The fisherman…

Rocks and Bolders

The terrain in Shenandoah National Park is wonderous.   The Applician Trail whines through the park.  Little did I know what I had said yes to when a dear friend asked if I wanted to come.    My mindset was completely different than last summers adventure and I am never one to miss a photo opp!…
