a tiny about

The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
Don’t go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth
across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
the door is round and open
Don’t go back to sleep!

~ Rumi

After a year-long commitment to step outside every day, followed by a year-long commitment to practice yoga daily, I have embarked on a year-long commitment to practice seated meditation daily beginning September 2012.  One commitment seems to have flowed into the other as I slowly find myself waking.  This awakening is leading me out of the past and into the present, and wanting to try something new.  That wanting eventually led me to make the move from my old blog, Life in the Bogs, to this new one.

Thank you so much for following me over here.  Please make yourself at home, and if there’s anything I can get you, let me know.  Check out Questions Answered for any questions you may have (and maybe a bit more information about me) or feel free to just ask if you haven’t the time to scroll through it.

Contact Form follows.  This will send me an email and will not appear on the blog.  If you prefer to just leave a comment, scroll down below the “Likes” and you’ll find the comments section.

  1. hi robin, since awakening i have been rather disconnected … your blog is something that helps hold me together in the seething soup of life, or brings me fresh from the emptiness i may be floating in … have been so busy and away but realised i was not getting these blog posts, so found you again tonight, thank you, christine xx 🙂


    1. “Seething soup of life” is something I can very much relate to, Christine. In my case, it’s a seething, chaotic, soup of life. lol! So glad you found your way over. Thank you. 🙂


  2. Oh, Robin! What I’ve been missing. Such beautiful photography. I smiled all the way through a bunch of posts. I love this blog! Yes! 🙂 Good grief! I posted in the wrong place. Gotta’ watch old people. No telling what I’m likely to do! Chuckle…

    1. I was tidying up the place here, George, when I found your comment. I’m sorry it took me so long to find it. Thank you so much for your lovely words. And I know what you mean. No telling what I’m likely to do lately, either. lol!


    1. As I just mentioned to George, I am tidying up the blog and just found your comment, Angeline. Thank you so much! I’m glad we’ve connected, too. I know I haven’t been around much lately, but I’m hoping to change that. 🙂


  3. Just had to come and check you out when I saw a cool comment you left on a blog I follow. I love nursery rhymes and am also intrigued when I see references to them. Having visited I’d love to return and read some more!


    1. Thank you, Marie, for your comment and for stopping by. 🙂 I love nursery rhymes, too, and fairy tales. In some odd way that I can’t explain, I think they are responsible for my love of nature.

      1. Laughing at myself here. I corrected your name, realizing that “Chez” means “home” or “at the home of.” Silly me. Usually I check first, but I was rushing through my comments today. Shame on me for not taking the time to find out about a new visitor. 😳


  4. I found you through Jo at Still Restless Jo …. I am so taken by your blog name & your Rumi quote: “The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you … Don’t go back to sleep!” The latter is resonating with me this morning – the temptation to sleep until all the craziness is over would mean missing all the secrets in the meantime.


Comments are delightful and always appreciated. I will respond when I can (life is keeping me busy!), and/or come around to visit you at your place soon. Thank you!
