I have eyes for you!


Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
Ralph Waldo Emerson




Such a lively autumn sport, watching the leaves turn. 
Yet how does just one leaf jump ahead of his fellow leaves?




Speaking of stepping out into nature (weekend camping adventure)
 I'm pleased to
introduce to you

a new pup (she's growing faster everyday)
belonging to my daughter and her family.


"Thorns may hurt you
men desert you
sunlight turns to fog;
but you're never friendless ever,
if you have a dog."
Douglas Malloch



Some birds are not meant to be caged.

"If you want to fly,
give up everything that
weighs you down."
Buddha



No story will ever live if nobody cares to listen.

Everyone has a story.

It was a rainy, chilly afternoon when we followed along listening to past stories about a few Dundas residents buried in Groveland Cemetery expertly told by a group of enthusiastic storytellers.


Storytelling is the most powerful way
to put ideas into the world.




We are as a species, addicted to story.
Even when the body goes to sleep
(and dreamland enters)
the mind stays up all night
 telling itself stories.
Jonathan Gottschall




Storytelling the oldest form of education.


What storytellers actually do,
they restore order
 in our imaginations,
the world around us
and 
allow all stories to live on 
forever and ever.


On this day our bones felt a cold chill perhaps,
yet our hearts were warmed by each new story.



This Dundas, Navy sailor survived the Pearl Harbor attack
returned home to heal his wounds and once again returned to serve his country only to have his ship brutally attacked again. His body was never recovered.




So continue on build your new stories 
share them often
as well as also taking time to listen to others.



I'm going to just leave this one thought with you today
 from John Muir
about nature.




"When one tugs at a single thing in nature,
he finds it attached to the rest of the world."

Thanks for stopping by
enjoy your day
and take good care of you!

We seem to have no patience anymore. Want instant gratification. Even after we post in our blogs .... we think to ourselves, "Why aren't my followers giving me a comment immediately?" lol

PS: You are welcome to visit my blog. :)

play bazaar Always lock your home uptight. Even if you are just popping over to a neighbors house, you need to ensure your house is secure. Most break-ins happen with no damage at all - the thief just walks through an open door or slips through an open window somewhere.
