Vacation break ...

taking a little vacation break ...
& sharing some of my favourite travel inspired quotes :-D

"I am not the same,
having seen the moon shine
on the other side
of the world"
~Mary Anne Radmacher~

"The use of traveling
is to regulate imagination with reality,
and instead of thinking of how things may be,
see them as they are"
~Samuel Johnson~

"Twenty years from now
you will be more disappointed 
by the things you didn't do
than by the ones you did do"
~Mark Twain~

"How wild it was
to let it be"
~Cheryl Strayed~

"I have loved her,
my little wanderer,
with a mind full of wild forests
and eyes that await adventures"
~Conny Cernik~

when it snows ...

the calm after the storm...
snow, freezing rain, high winds
over the weekend ...
the birds & squirrels have returned to the garden
and happily filling up at the feeders
"Some things need to be let go
before other things
can be let in"
~Marianne Williamson~

Just let things happen
let life flow 
don't force it

Spring will arrive when she is ready

right Archer?

Perception ...

when you spot a "bird leaf" with a heart shaped eye on your walk

"We don't see things as they are,
we see them as we are "
~Anais Nin~

hello April ...

walks with Archer x
Robin serenades
morning meditation in the garden
basking in the sunshine
visits to the nursery for ranunculus and smiling every time I see them
remembering how the garden bunnies love them
and nibble off the flowers leaving nothing but stems
fruit and nut mix for the squirrels
sparrow love
x
bringing bird seed with me
and sprinkling some in my hand
walking through the trails
and waiting... it doesn't take long...
black capped chickadees begin to  land on my outstretched hand
... some take a seed and fly away... others sit and eat from my hand
{magic}
treats left by walkers before me
today has seen a mixture of rain and snow
and heavy, heavy winds
finding bits of suet amongst the leaves
"Hark, I hear a robin calling!
List, the wind is from the south!
And the orchard-bloom is falling
Sweet as kisses on the mouth.

In the dreamy vale of beeches
Fair and faint is woven mist,
And the river's orient reaches
Are the palest amethyst.

Every limpid brook is singing
Of the lure of April days;
Every piney glen is ringing
With the maddest roundelays.

Come and let us seek together
Springtime lore of daffodils,
Giving to the golden weather
Greeting on the sun-warm hills."
-  Lucy Maud Montgomery, Spring Song
