"Intent is a seed in consciousness, or spirit. If you pay attention to it, it has within it the means for its own fulfillment. Intention's infinite organizing power orchestrates countless details simultaneously."

No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.
~Lin Yutang

When I travel I usually bring my own old, familiar pillow! But it is always so wonderful to get home after a trip, that is true. I am thinking of travel because my husband is winging off to NH today to visit his family.

I'm Alive
Performed by Kenny Chesney & Dave Matthews

So damn easy to say that life's so hard
Everybody's got their share of battle scars
As for me I'd like to thank my lucky stars that
I'm alive and well

It'd be easy to add up all the pain
And all the dreams you've sat and watch go up in flames
Dwell on the wreckage as it smolders in the rain
But not me... I'm alive

And today you know that's good enough for me
Breathing in and out's a blessing can't you see
Today's the first day of the rest of my life
And I'm alive and well
I'm alive and well

Stars are dancin' on the water here tonight
It's good for the soul when there's not a soul in sight
This motor's caught its wind and brought me back to life
Now I'm alive and well

And today you know that's good enough for me
Breathing in and out's a blessing can't you see
Today's the first day of the rest of my life
Now I'm alive and well
Yeah I'm alive and well

This song touches places in my heart & soul and lifts me up. I recommend listening to it. Here is the youtube link:

The poetry of the earth is never dead.
~John Keats

This photo is of a a field of soybeans that are turning golden. It does not do justice to it. It was so stunning that I had to turn around and try to capture it on film(well, not film, since it was digital).

Go Forward With Courage

When you are in doubt, be still, and wait.
When doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage.
So long as mists envelop you, be still.
Be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists, as it surely will.
Then act with courage.

Ponca, Chief White Eagle

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

“Don't let yesterday use up too much of today.”
~Cherokee Proverb

This photo doesn't do justice to the red of the sun and the pastel of the clouds. Have you ever noticed how fast the sun slips down as we say goodbye to today?

A print from

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often I look so
long at the closed door that I do not see the one which has been opened
for me."

Under every full moon, a woolgathering world idles.
~Lorraine Skylark

This is the full moon from a few nights ago. I was driving home and had to stop and admire it. The orange hue and size were mesmerizing.

“Seemed to me that drumming was the best way to get close to God.”
~ Lionel Hampton

Last night our drum circle at Windsong was extra powerful. Not only the drumming, but the words and love and energy that were shared. There I have found a home.
