dancing in an autumn sun ...

the trees are wearing their autumn coats
such beauty
trees & tracks xo
"I see the turning of a leaf
dancing in an autumn sun
and brilliant shades
of crimson glowing
when a day
is done"
~Hazelmarie Mattie Elliott~
 a lovely pumpkin face ... someone's winking with a sly grin :-D
"The tints of autumn...
a mighty flower garden
blossoming under the spell
of the enchanter, frost"
~John Greenleaf Whittier~
~hope you are having a wonderful autumn Sunday~

for the secret of the sea ...

"Till my soul is full of longing
for the secret of the sea.
And the heart of the great Ocean
sends a thrilling pulse
through me"
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~
***
I think my heart skips a beat when I find heart shaped sea glass ... it is like stumbling upon a love note washed up and waiting for you to find xo
Walking along the lake this past weekend, gathering sea glass as I walked and thought, this came to me ... Each piece of sea glass makes me think ... 
What man has discarded, nature heals and returns. It may take years and many ebbs and flows,  but when it returns, it is more beautiful than ever!
Reading Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindberg again.
One of my favourite books.
"Patience, patience, patience
is what the sea teaches.
Patience and faith.
One should lie
empty, open, choiceless as a beach -
waiting for a gift from the sea"
~Anne Morrow Lindbergh~
"Because there's nothing more beautiful
than the way the ocean
refuses to stop kissing the shoreline,
no matter how many times
it's sent away"
~Sarah Kay~
*the black blotch in the photos is my lovely lab Archer's head ... my Velcro dog & beach walking partner  ... I could have edited the photos, but I think he adds to the lovely~ness * xo

and just like that ...

and just like that...
the leaves changed colour
"Listen to the trees
as they sway
in the wind.
Their leaves
are telling
secrets"
~Vera Nazarian~

"I would rather be amongst forest animals
and the sounds of nature,
than amongst city traffic
and the noise of man"
~Anthony Douglas Williams~
