That warm glow though…

Wish I could have posted this last night.  I ended my day yesterday with a bike ride down by the river.  The “Mighty Mississippi” was unusually calm, it made for a very peaceful ending of the day.


Wishing you peaceful endings and calm waters as you float through this Wednesday…

September Glory

I awoke on this September 1st to find my morning glories have finally bloomed…

I love thier big, bright blue blossoms!  😍

 I also awoke this morning to some brisk temperatures here in my little part of the world.  Not that I’m complaining, this is my favorite time of the year!  As many of you may already know, I absolutely adore everything there is about Autumn!  🍁

I’ll admit, it’s a little bit of a sad time in the garden, as everything is winding down.  Many of my plants are looking quite scraggly and my veggie garden gave up the ghost a bit early this year, as I’ve already yanked out my cucumber vines and my zucchini.  But I’ve still got some little jalapeno peppers going and a few tomatoes yet to turn red.

But as the Earth keeps spinning and the seasons come and go, everything in nature is always in some phase of transition and continual transformation, and I do my best to embrace each one.  All of life is a series of bittersweet hellos and goodbyes…

So hello to September, and a happy September 1st to all of you!  May this new month bring new and beautiful things to your life…

Glowing Horizon


As my eyes are drawn east

my heart is drawn too

longing to fly into that glowing horizon

over there to you

Beauty Remains


I miss the days when words flowed free

from mind to pen

They seem stuck now


and littered with negativity

Inspiration, creativity, and light


I have nothing to offer

only thoughts induced through pain

And those I will not share because they benefit no one

including myself

But beauty still remains

all around me

even in the midst of suffering

though I may not be fully capable of enjoying its splendor in the way I “normally” would


And I will grab hold of it…

Lessons From Trees


Bend in the breeze

you can’t control the wind

it’s always gonna blow

sometimes softly, sometimes strong

don’t try to resist it, bend with it

let it flow through you


Stay rooted and grounded, but not stiff

brittle branches break


Stretch out your arms and embrace life

but don’t cling too tightly to anything

be willing to let go –

Let the leaves fall off when their time comes

setting them free to dance on the wind

Shed your protective bark

allowing new layers of yourself to emerge


Seasons come and go, the cycle of life continues


But always remain green inside

even in the dead of winter

Autumn’s Table


Come my friends, come sit with me

at a table midst the autumn trees

We’ll feast on colors warm and bright

delicious views to whet our appetite

This scene begged me to pause and snap a photo of it while I was passing through a rest area on a road trip up to the North Shore earlier this fall.  A lovely spot for an autumn picnic, don’t you think?
