BEAUTY

“…the truth of the matter is that beauty is all around us.” – Te’

I AM a walker. Forever gazing at clouds. My photos capture the beauty of what I see.

Sharing these magical moments makes it real as we get lost in often looking at what distracts us.

Most of my photos to date are simply within walking distance of my home. However I guess I do take a fair amount of photos while on drives.

A question I was asked recently from one of my dear artist friends;

“How do you capture such beauty? Where do you go to see these amazing views? How is it that you find such beauty?”

I go outside.

My response quite simply leaves me humbled.

I attempt to capture beauty that I see. But the truth of the matter is that beauty is all around us.

Being able to see this beauty is the joy. The discovery of daily life. A practice. A mindfulness to be more present. More aware of what is all around us.

Astounding for me to also realize that many of my photos are of vast skyscapes.

It is I who marvel at those who capture a photo of a something close up.

Focusing in on the details of what they see. What others myself included, miss.

Perhaps that is a metaphor for our lives. Finding the balance. The balance of looking out so far into the future that we miss the details that within a given moment that warrant our attention.

I AM learning that we walk hand in hand with nature. Every day. It is in the blessing of what we experience that creates the magic.

See we must be in awe. Childlike wonder.

I simply hold this wonder when I walk. When I drive. When I sit and look out my window. The sun. The birds. They call to us to go and play with them in this magic kingdom called earth.

This my friend is beauty. This is the living from our soul, calling us home to ourselves to enjoy life. To know the beauty within.

It is morning. My coffee has long grown cold. And I AM smiling as I am still in my blue bathrobe. Watching as snow dances on the ground.

Thank you for sharing this amazing journey of triumph with me. Truly.

High Five to the beauty that is all around us!

GOLDEN MOMENT

image

A golden moment captured at dawn…along the rivers edge.

She walked as the day awaken before her.
Taking each step to watch the sky unfold with magic.

From all directions the night faded into the clouds
as the sun broke free upon the horizon.

What would it be like to rise?

“Haven’t you? By getting up and being alive in this moment?”
she heard her soul speak.

Could it be this simple to awaken to oneself each day
in these golden moments captured?

She sought out to bless a new day beginning
and those she met along her journey…

High Five to Your Triumph!

MAGICAL JOY

Surround yourself with love…
as you celebrate magical moments of #purejoy.

Walking seems to clear the way for words to take hold for ones writing…
Even better to be sharing a bit of river magic with dear family visiting on holiday.

not at the beginning.” – Real Time Cowboy

As the summer ignites into autumn…
As another journey ends, another one begins.
