Morning rose…

morning rose

There are two things I look forward to every spring, the blooming of our roses and the return of the hummingbirds we feed.

We’re down to our last rose (not pictured) and the hummers will be around for about a month and then the long cold winter blows in and starts to drag on for what seems like 2 years.

good night

I have now pictured all four of our dogs and our only cat. This is Brandi, the smallest but she thinks she’s the biggest of them all.

A place for peace…

There has to be a place for peace. Thought, meditation or prayer I believe are essential in emptying the stress that builds in us and will slowly kill us all. 

Today’s quote: “In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”
Mahatma Gandhi


That’s creepy…


Scares me and I’m fearless.

  “Written laws are like spider‘s webs; they will catch, it is true, the weak and the poor, but would be torn in pieces by the rich and powerful.”

wings and a prayer


It’s pretty hard to watch a hummingbird for very long without believing that there is a higher power.

Today’s quote:
“I see myself forever and ever as the ridiculous man, the lonely soul, the wanderer, the restless frustrated artist, the man in love with love, always in search of the absolute, always seeking the unattainable”
