A pool is the eye of the garden in whose candid depths is mirrored its advancing grace.

How about another walk around the pond at Breezy Acres? I have been sorting through the photos from my trip to Ohio, and thought I’d share a few more with you. Because I’m still ill (and will be seeing the doctor tomorrow because the flu is growing more complicated), this is pretty much the only walking I’m doing right now.
The weather is a factor, too. It’s been hot, humid, and generally stuffy. I’m not sure if we set a record high yesterday or not, but do know it was 87°F by 11:00 AM. I forgot to check later in the day to see how hot it managed to get. There is a cool front coming through tonight, and tomorrow should be much better. Unfortunately, we did not and will not get much rain from this latest weather system, and we really could use a good dousing. It did rain heavily for about five minutes sometime in the middle of the night, with lots of lightning and thunder accompanying it. That’s better than nothing at all, and I’m sure the garden plants are grateful for what they did get.
Would you believe I have nothing to chat about today? It’s true. Words are slow to come, and I all I can think to write about is the weather. My blog has always been a bit of a diary for me, recording what goes on around here as well as my travels and adventures.
The problem is that I have not been doing much of anything lately. I have listened to a few talks from the Hay House World Summit. Some of the talks have presented new (to me) ideas, and some have involved ideas I’m familiar with. I did enjoy a rather nice healing meditation this morning. It was at the end of a talk given by Heather Dane. She mentions a green healing light in the meditation, and that’s what prompted me to have a look at some of the pictures I took during my walks around the pond at Breezy Acres. Even though spring was just getting started (you can see in some of the photos that the trees hadn’t completely leafed out yet), there was still plenty of green to be found.
One good thing about being sick is that it has given me the luxury to listen to talks, to read a little, to meditate, to stare out the window and watch the leaves on the trees dance in the wind.
I also have plenty of time to sit and sort through my photos, and get caught up with myself in that regard. I have even played around a little in Photoshop, experimenting for the fun of it.
I took the above photo, and added a painting-like effect to get this:
I should have flipped it (as I did with “The world is a dream,” but I like it better upside down, the way it was taken.
Looking at these images, I think the pond reflections are one of the main reasons I miss Breezy Acres. The lagoon and creek here don’t reflect as well, mostly because they are always moving with the tides. The pond in Ohio is often a big mirror, although there usually are ripples from the fish or the wind.
Well, I reckon that’s enough rambling about nothing in particular from me for today. Thank you so much for stopping by, and keeping me company as I continue to recover from a particularly nasty version of the flu. I’m going to sit on the porch and watch the sunset (which is at 8:10 PM today). You’re welcome to join me. I promise I won’t pass along the flu germs. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy, let alone good friends.
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
