An Artist’s Relections

Through the lens allows time to ‘be in the moment’ much like a butterfly.

Keeping life  ‘simply, sincerely and slowly.

Many get caught in the ‘mid way’ with all the conforming attractions.

Being more selective helps keep one more focused and being in the now.

Be like the fishes ~ they know they are a fish ~ be who you are.

Through the Lens Weekend

postpudNew England in all its Wintry Glory ~ Hardy souls live here and thrive in all kinds of weather. Even the little Yorkie has her ‘bomber jacket’ for our brisk walks.

shadows fall ever gently

with warmth and loving.

Reflecting through meditation helps with the ‘monkey mind.’ If I reflect too long during the daily activities I have lost the ‘now’. My aim is ‘to be here now.’ ~ not in the past or into the future. My daily meditation and journalling seems to help me focus and remember my aim. Then I am reminded that I need to ‘get out of my head’ and move into my heart when taking photos. The above photo, I think, is a wonderful example of hearing the humor, the universal chuckle in my heart, the inner child in my heart. Play is so good for the inner soul. 

Come back again ~ we love visits and comments and you can even bring a ‘biscuit’ ~ I might even give you a kiss. ^_^

Keeping warm on my deck ~ he/she comes frequently and in the summer sits on the peak of the roof ~ Critters are so fascinating ~ Enjoy ~ carol, xxx

Winter allows one to see the strength of the trees and the years of survival. What an example for us humans ~ Ya think? xxx

I read recently that haiku is like a prayer ~ I certainly find it meditating ~ what do you think?

QUOTE TO PONDER: ‘ Out of clutter, find simplicity,’ ~ Albert Einstein

Reflections on Life

REFLECTIONS:  This little one in the photo is my constant companion and provides me with much ‘food for thought’ ~ ideas to reflect on. She helps me to realize I need to ‘keep it simple’ ~ My ‘monkey mind’ loves to ‘come in’ and make life much more complex than it needs to be ~ How human of me.  Yet, there is an ‘animal’ part to all of us and needs to be monitored and directed. It is my life and I am responsible for it. Live well each day. Ride the waves of life as there is no ‘flat surface’ to life that is very interesting anyway. Enjoy.

snowing, snowing now

white flurries swirling in air

nature moving on.
