12 August

I have arrived at a place in my life, mentally, emotionally, and geographically where I am at once

 in perfect and astounding wonder at my fortune

and stunningly terrified at what it will require of me.

 both flower and bud

 poised on the edge of the un-furrowed

roots sown deeply in the seasoned terrain

 petals unfurling themselves toward new skies

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

just a dream and the wind to carry me

and soon i will be free

  3. Elegant photography and divine writing ~ thanks, carol, xo

  4. I love those pale blues . . .

    Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  5. Blue sky and water - good illustrations for your words. I read this last night, when it briefly appeared, and then again this morning. I find myself just slightly envious of that feeling of freedom and release, when I am, at this time of life, so tethered to responsibility and need. Something to think about - thank you.

  6. Very beautiful pictures.

  7. Such a beautiful mosaic & blog - have a lovely week ahead!

  8. Such peaceful stunning images with uplifting words...I can feel myself catching the wind in my mind right now!

  14. Hi--Thank you for the quote by Carl Sagan, it has always been one of my favorites. He captures the essence of a Buddhist viewpoint. The photos are lovely!

  15. Your lovely flower expressed your words quite well.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
