Touching Earth

Shhh! Can you hear that?
Is it a bee or a bird or the opening of tulips?

"-and forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet
and the winds long to play with your hair."
Kahlil Gibran

Are you a geese seeker or a bayou dreamer?

"Everything in everybody's life is significant. 
And everybody is alert, watching for the meaning."
Tom Wolfe

When we find our very own safe places, 
there's a certain remembrance 
that always brings us back 
and allows for us to keep track
and opens awareness for other places
as well.

There's so much mindfulness in alone time. 

Hello new stranger.

The earth gives us flowers, 
sunshine and rain.
Oceans and lakes to sail and ground to cover-
but the Girls Scouts of America offer cookies!

My favorite thin mint girl scout!
Isn't she sweet!

I hope you all enjoyed your Mother's Day gatherings!
If you look closely you'll see all the mothers put fairy gardens together!

Fairy gardening, come each new spring, it's what we ache to do.

"Each fairy breath of summer
as it blows with loveliness
inspires the blushing rose."

Such a delight!

Enjoy your earth touchings,
 and maybe there's a fairy garden in your future too!
Take good care of you.

Thank you for sharing Tom Wolfe's words, Karen. I'd been searching for some sort of meaning to help me make sense of his passing. When good writers leave us, I feel like we all lose a piece of our voice. Reflecting on things they've written or said helps me to hold onto why they were special in the first place - and influences my own writing going forward.

I was mesmerised by the beautiful turtle shell, for some reason. But I too am sorry that Tom Wolfe has gone.
