3 January


the gift of a new day

with which we are blessed every 24 hours

how will we make use of it

I plan on being present 

and mindful

in each new day of 


and here are a few other random tidbits

last night I walked the beach

the lights on the mainland were so clear and bright 

in the winter sky

we have the boys with us during the school break

and plan on walking through the wood and up

onto the high cliffs today

the morning sky is streaked with colors

pink and purple and mauve

it makes being present in this day easy

boys eat a very lot of food

and one must be constantly at the ready 

for second breakfast's

of pancakes and bacon

and elvenses of banana bread and clementines 

not to mention lunches and dinners

and perhaps a snack or two between times
I miss random 5 friday

so I've decided to do a serendipity Saturday here...

join me if you like

it's often nice to have a sort of accounting 

of nothing very important whatsoever 


  1. What a wonderful way to start 2015!It does sound as if those boys share some characteristics with hobbits though. :-)

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. One should live in present. Can't do anything from the pass, except to learn form it. The future will be the future.
    Hope 2015 brings you plenty of blessings.
    Coffee is on

  3. I agree with being mindful and present. It was not until I became serious ill that I learned that lesson. Happy 2015 :)

    My "present" post

  4. I always adore your simplicity.
    Happy PhotoHunting in the New Year!

  5. I love the idea of striving to be present each and every day, much more easily said than done. And ... I love the idea of Serendipity Saturday! When do we begin?

  6. I am a big fan of the nothing very important whatsoever. It's my favourite sort of post to read.

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
