Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

Inukshuk
Canada's symbol of the North

Inuk "man"
Shuk "substitute"

I love spotting Inukshuks along the highway ♥
Built in the image of man and used as a directional marker.
Their strength and presence give  comfort to travelers assuring them they are never alone.
"We can choose
to throw stones
to stumble on them
to climb over them
or
to build with them"

wildflowers ...

I have a large clump of cosmos growing in my little country garden.
They are closest to the driveway and the first flowers to greet me as I get out of my car.
I love this time of year {for so many reasons} ... the cosmos {which began many years ago from gathering dried seed pods in the Muskokas, brought home and scattered in my own garden}still have lots of pretty pink blooms, but there are lots of dried seed pods too ♥
I've been running my hand over some of them and sprinkling those back into the earth & gathering up others. 
This Thanksgiving, a little seed package will sit next to each plate :-D
You are ...
the Sun
the Water
the Air
Wings
Roots
... the Earth
I was made to be Wild

She felt most herself when in the woods with the animals, trees and wildflowers
where she could be *wild* and *free*

Ah, September! ...

hello September...
so happy to see you
loving the change in the weather
and evenings that are drawing in ...
walking through the woods
visiting with some of my ... do I dare say ... "favourite" trees
the ones that are unique and twisted and filled with personality and life ♥
{the same qualities I am drawn to in people} :-D xo
putting my hands on cool bark ...
both energy boosters and soul soothers
some with little doorways ... "Welcome Home"

"Ah, September!
You are the Doorway
to the Season
that Awakens
my Soul ..."
