Set Wide The Window, Let me drink the day…

“Set wide the window, Let me drink the day.”~ Edith Wharton

 

  I set out for a walk this morning and took these pictures of the dahlias at Tea Lane Farm on Middle road.  

Just wanted to share them here.  Beauty Medicine!

Sometimes, in the midst of sadness, it’s good to remind ourselves that there is still so much to love.

Wishing you Love & Light & Beauty…Harmony & Health, Peace & Joy…

Beauty I meant to Share Sooner

Is it ever too late to share glimpses of beauty?  Here are just a few pictures from summer…

Praise and Unspoken Gratitudes

I wish I could bring you with me on walks around the island.  I snap photographs and jot notes in my notebook, receiving words and poems.

Here is this morning’s poem……..

There are undreamed dreams inside you.
Might you name a few?

There are some hopes that were dashed and are jagged –
could you breathe them into repair?

And what of praise and unspoken gratitudes-
begin to speak them in every moment.

Speak them and feel your life turning
from worry into song.

Snapshots of Summer

 It is such a blessing to live in a beautiful place- I am ever thankful, and happy to share these snapshots with you.

“To find one’s center- to become centered in the infinite,
is the first great essential of every satisfactory life.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
