Robin, look between the sights, hear between the words, feel between your heart and mind, and there you’ll find me conspiring on your behalf, with magic, miracles, and more.
And look between the moments too.
*The Note from the Universe I received today.
As I experience it, appreciation of beauty is access to the soul. With beauty in our lives, we walk and carry ourselves more lightly and with a different look in our eyes. To look into the eyes of someone beholding beauty is to look through the windows of the soul. Anytime we catch a glimpse of soul, beauty is there; anytime we catch our breath and feel ‘How beautiful!,’ the soul is present.

I want to show you how beautiful it was here at the Wabi-Sabi Ranch this morning. The sky was an amazing shade of blue. The sunlight fell at an angle that allowed me to look through and between.
What I really want to show is the light itself, and sometimes that’s difficult to do.
There was a glow to the morning that the camera doesn’t pick up.
The thing which we speak of as beauty does not have to be sought in distant lands… It is here about us or it is nowhere.

I spent quite a bit of time in the woods today. I haven’t spent much time there during the hot days of summer. It’s too buggy, and the humidity is sometimes overwhelming. The woods border the creek and marshlands, and it often feels as though the humidity hangs in between the trees and on the paths. Today the breeze was strong enough, cool enough, and dry enough, to drive the humidity out of the woods and out to the Atlantic Ocean.
Tell me, can you see beauty? Can you let it renew your commitment to life, every day? … I want to be awed every day by the truth — pretty or painful — and let it open me to the beauty that surrounds me and draws me deeper and deeper into my own life.

Seven people voted yes for a group/blog walk so we’ll go ahead and start planning it. I’m going to wait a bit to see how the weather goes before setting the dates although I can tell you it will be sometime in October. Walk (bike, skate, swim, run, hop, skip, jump, or dance) whatever distance you like, wherever you like, and then paint us a picture of your walk in words or images or music or whatever suits you and your blog. You’ll have a full week to complete your walk and blog post, and then I’ll sum it all up here with links to your posts. As always, the rules are loose and easy so if you need more time, ask and you shall receive. I’ll be sure to remind you about it occasionally so it doesn’t get lost in the shuffle of life.
That’s it from the Wabi-Sabi Ranch for today. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the walk. I have a busy weekend ahead that includes time for family and friends. How about you? Any plans?
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
