Welcome to my new blog home, Breezes at Dawn. You may be wondering why I picked the name Breezes at Dawn, and didn’t go with another Life in the Bogs theme. It’s simple, really. This blog already existed with this name. I originally intended to use it to share my year of meditation practice, but I quickly discovered how difficult it is to put things learned through meditation into words that truly express what I experienced.
The few posts I wrote when I started this blog are still available. I may go back and delete or privatize them later. For now, it seems like they belong here so I’ve let them be.
The name, Breezes at Dawn, comes from a Rumi poem. You may have noticed part of the poem in the header. If you visit A Tiny About, you’ll find the short, but longer, explanation along with the poem. It is one of my favorite Rumi poems although I have to admit it’s difficult to pick a favorite.
Please make yourself at home. I hope you find it as comfortable here as you did at Life in the Bogs. I changed themes, but the look is similar to my old blog home. There are some new pages, including my Blogroll. Which reminds me… if you are a regular visitor and you don’t see your blog on my blogroll, please drop me a note about it in the comments so I can add you to it.
As for content, I plan to continue taking my daily walks and sharing those with you in the same way I have in the past. I hope it doesn’t become too dull.
There will be a lot of new adventures, and new places to explore. We have all gotten to know the area around the pond here at Breezy Acres so well that I think it’s time to branch out, but we’ll still have days by the pond, and in the woods and meadows.
The photos for this post were taken on 09 March when we had a good scattering and twinkling of frost and sunlight. I took so many that I haven’t yet had a chance to sort through them all.
I like not only to be loved,but also to be told that I am loved. I am not sure if you are of the same mind. But the realm of silence is large enough beyond the grave. This is the world of light and speech, and I shall take leave to tell you that you are very dear.
~ George Eliot
And so you all are, my friends and visitors, very dear. Thank you so much for joining me here in my new blog home. I hope we continue to share many magical adventures together.
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just be. 🙂
Join me in the pure atmosphere of gratitude
