Sunday Serenity

"I like to walk.
Touch living Mother Earth ~
bare feet best,
and thrill
every step.
Used to envy
happy reptiles
that had the advantage
of so much body
in contact with earth,
bosom to bosom.
{We} live with our heels
as well as head
and most of our pleasure
comes that way"
~John Muir~
... a mish mash of photos from my week ♥
after a very busy day, I stumbled across this sweet turtle
who was basking in the sunshine.
he would lift his little head up to the sun, eyes glistening, in pure bliss.
I found a nearby rock at the edge of the pond and sat just watching him and smiling.
he stretched out one arm ... then another ... and slid into the cool water.
beautiful blooms
hello
stopped to listen to a sparrow serenade ♥
such beauty!
do you see the butterfly?
~happy Sunday~

Sunday Serenity ...

As I walk with Beauty

As I walk,
as I walk
the Universe is
walking with me
In beauty
it walks
before me
In beauty
it walks
behind me
In beauty
it walks
below me
In beauty
it walks
above me
Beauty
is on
every side
~Traditional Navajo Prayer~
take a walk in the forest
and smell
the wild air

Sunday Serenity

The ideas which have lighted my way
and time after time
have given me new courage
to face life cheerfully
have been
kindness
beauty
and
truth
~Albert Einstein~
