It's How We Look At Things!

The snow continues to fall, softly layering a fresh blanket of white,
covering any tracks or signs of life, But it is fresh and beautiful!
Even the fallen trees tell a story of weathering.
For a moment I wonder did they crack or silently  lay down their weary branches.
Or was it the wind or possibly lightning during one of its trysts.
Other saplings and trees mowed down possibly by moose or dear.
They are sure to be found just beyond probably wondering at the strange prescence,
and being cautious of the unknown..
I wonder, are they watching, or have they already taken cover deeper in the bush.
..........
So as I am sitting here silently wishing for Spring,
I remind myself of the beauty that I have for right now.
It is a gift, one that I should be holding in my heart and treasuring!
..........
Every day see the beauty of the moment,
because if we wish,
well we will
be wishing
our lives away,
and sometimes in the process
we forget to live.
..........
I hope you all have a great weekend!

    this video is from Bonnie's site - it is worth the 22 minutes.

    Hi Cinner-

    Our new puppy arrives Saturday morning - I posted about her hesterday. Take a look when you have a moment. We have re-named her "Gracey-Blue".....we are allset for her and SO excited.


    I really loved the nature of things in this post and picture - it gives way to much personal interpretation. I feel the solitude and unyielding force all at once. I have a sense of adventure and surrender all at once. I am paralyzed with wonder and jolted by fear. All at once.

    Love to you my beautiful friend
    Gail
    peace.....

  3. I think sometimes we hide in our wishes, to avoid facing the Ever Present Moment - The Now which is the only time there is, or will ever be.
