On the beach.
On the beach when the light is warm and the air is cold.

The beauty of the natural world lies in the details.

Finding gold on the shore.
Finding gold on the shore.

Life on earth is a whole, yet it expresses itself in unique time-bound bodies, microscopic or visible, plant or animal, extinct or living.  So there can be no one place to be.  There can be no one way to be, no one way to practice, no one way to learn, no one way to love, no one way to grow or to heal, no one way to live, no one way to feel, no one thing to know or be known.  The particulars count.

~ Jon Kabat-Zinn, Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life

Treasure.
Treasure.

Be good, be kind, be loving.  Just Be.  🙂

This one is for Eliza.  A sign of spring and hope.  While out on my walk this afternoon, I found several crocuses blooming.  Most had been pummeled by the hard rain we've had today, but this one weathered through without too much wear and tear.

  1. Aw, so sweet, thanks for the crocus – it cheers me up! I know I’ll be happier tomorrow when the sun comes out and hopefully finishes melting the yucky stuff off the driveway. It got to 47 today and rained a ton. I can hear the waterfall and river roaring from the porch. With the ground frozen, the water just pours into the watershed. Never a dull moment with Ma Nature. 🙂

    1. Thank you, WG. 🙂 The red-winged blackbirds are in our front yard and meadows by the hundreds. I keep meaning to look up what they eat. Whatever it is, they must find plenty of it here since they keep coming back year after year. We’ve had quite a few flickers combing the lawn, too.
      We have quite a few crocuses blooming now. It’s good to see them again. 😀
