Are we, the ones we have been waiting for???

Are we the ones we have been waiting for? 

“There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.

Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. See who is in there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!

Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.

All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we've been waiting for.”

—The Elders Oraibi
Arizona Hopi Nation

Our United States belonged mostly to the American Indians.
I often think of how horribly they were, and are treated, and feel shame.
They are mysterious.
Indian Paint (google)

I think we are to gather up, remember the beginning earth, and be smart above turning back to the simple life.

Winter Trees by William Carlos Williams

Winter Trees

All the complicated details
of the attiring and
the disattiring are completed!
A liquid moon
moves gently among
the long branches.
Thus having prepared their buds
against a sure winter
the wise trees
stand sleeping in the cold.

Thankful Moon

"Oh, how can I say this ? People need wild places. Whether or not we think we do, we do . We need to be able to taste grace and know once again that we desire it. We need to experience a landscape that is timeless, whose agenda moves at the pace of speciation and glaciers. To be surrounded by a singing, mating, howling commotion of other species, all of which love their lives as much as we do ours, and none of which could possibly care less about our economic status or our running day calendar."       Barbara Kingsolver

Imagination and Reality

From this distance the remaining tree stump looked like Santa and a bag of gifts.

Several textures and shades of fall in one scene.  Earth is chocked full of changes for us.

After the Leaves are Gone

"I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes." ~e.e. cummings

The Forest and You ---- featured poem - LOST...... by David Wagoner


Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you.
If you leave it, you may come back again, saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree of a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest know
Where you are. You must let it find you.

- David Wagoner

Raising Aylesbury Ducks | Farm Raised With P. Allen Smith

I'm off chasing ducks, rather than rabbits, for now.  Discovered these Aylesbury ducks on Create, P. Allen Smith, Garden to Table program this morning.  Should I inherit or win millions or billions,  I will purchase land.  There will be gardens - flowers and vegetable gardens.  Ducks, chickens, sheep(s), fur babies - dogs and cats.  Milk cows.....and I will have to live forever to care for and share the bounty!

Daydreaming is so good for me.

All but left off blogging.........

baby elk and mommie’s rear end
this poor young mommie has a tag in both ears, and this “tracking device”.  leave them alone i say.  send a human to brave the elements and track the animal, if you will, it would be cheaper too!
one can never see to many mountains.  my eyes journey over these mountains again and again, never tired of the same vistas. (Blue Ridge Parkway, near Maggie Valley, NC)

All but left off blogging......

After loosing my original blog my blogging experience nose dived.

It happens and it happened to me.

From time to time I will post here.  Stop in if you will.

Happy Midsummers Day!!!!!

Summer, summer, summer, is thrilling me to my finger tips!

Thank you who have always been here.....It was fun....

and because I love faery tales, and legends

 and day dreaming, I leave you with this..

Sunday Scenes

Home Sweet Home
Across the street from us Georgia 515
Wild Honeysuckle dripping wet with rain.

A cozy rainy day.  A slight cool wind chills me.  The smell of wild honeysuckle and wet leaves is strong as I walk Molly and take pictures.

The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia are just outside my window.

Simplicity of nature rules here at Plum Nelly Campground, Ellijay, Georgia.  

Peace is deep and wide.

..."Come with me into the heart inside the heart, the world inside the world.

My Granddaughter and Kitty 2014

I am a yogini. I am timeless.
I am a woman offering myself on
the altar of truth.
I am a roar
I am a sigh
I am a billion sparkles of light.
Come closer to me, I will hold you in my heart.
Come with me into the realms of constant blossoming,
where each atom is flaunting its stunning power.
Together we dare to be that big.
To be that radiant.
To be that trusting.
Come with me into the heart inside the heart, the world inside the world.
Our roots growing deep into earth and cosmos,
into total belonging.
Chameli Devi
(Thankfully many wonders and truths encourage me.)

  1. Yogini
  2. Yogini is the sacred feminine force made incarnate: the goddesses of mythology (Lakshmi, Parvati, Durga, Kali) as well as the ordinary human woman who is enlightened, both having exuberant passion, spiritual powers and deep insight, capable of giving birth to saints, peacemakers, and Yogis.

Mother's Day and Jacksonville, Florida

Mother’s Day we spent in Jacksonville, Florida.  

Chamblin’s  Uptown our favorite bookstore was open.  Wandering the isles among tall bookcases is so fun.  Found a George Sand biography!

Historic downtown is delightfully filled with grand and avant guard architecture.

Homeless persons are in the number of over a hundred that I could see.  Makes you think and think and pray.
