The Earth, the Sky, Our Very Air We Breathe — Thursday, December 9, 2021

Is full of energy

(You are looking at Cedaredge from our house)

The energy of the earth, the sky, the air is flowing through each and everything we see and or touch

We only have to be outside to become part of that energy.

And if you stand still, or dance around in awe, 🙂

You realize you are now one with this amazing energy.

You are one with the ripples and eddies as the energy moves around you

And through you

Swinging, swaying, moving — Dancing, dancing, dancing

Quivering through you and everything alive, including the soil, the rocks, and all the plants

A soothing song of comfort wrapping you in an endless timeless melody.

From my world to your heart,


Shadows Act Like Curtains — Wednesday, December 8, 2021

Shadows make my heart happy

They take away chaos

They promise wonderment with enthusiasm

They highlight silence

And blend into the familiar so you are one within

They give you a sliver of peace

A lull, as it were

Allowing you to see, taste, and feel the quiet

Taking away the remaining shouts

echoing throughout the day

Shadows are gossamer

Like a curtain.

From my heart to your world,




I Love Early Morning —- Tuesday, December 7, 2021

I love watching the sun come up

The skylines seem to  shimmer

The earth is black, the weeds streaking the edges of the earth

While the fire of the rising sun colors everything in its path.

The air seems to drift with the glowing sky

Sounds carry further in the early morning air

The God(s) have given us marvelous tools to live this life we live.

The patches of shadow, are always lit from above

The darkness fading into light.

The magic of a new, new day!

From my world to your heart,



Before a Shadow Closes In — Monday, December 6, 2021

While the hawk is hunting in another part of the farm

The bunnies (and I)

Enjoy a sweet little interlude

In the silence of

The equipment area.

We finished!

Before the weather changed

Without anything breaking down

Without too (TOO) long of waits in the long line to unload at the Elevator


Last load!

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-OWL!, Friday December 3, 2021

I was outside,


YES, I DO!!!

I was outside, looking for mice

So, I looked here

And I looked there

Then I headed into my garden

I looked




As I was starting to play with my food

(That is the best part)

Playing with my food

I heard


Looking up I saw


When Mindy lived here, she said NEVER EVER Trust and OWL

I dropped what I was doing and ran to the house!




Good, Mom let me in.

Passing Over Head —- Thursday, December 2, 2021

Sunlight bouncing off the weeds

In silence

The hunt to find food

This is our hawk…he/she has the damaged tail feather.  It must be damaged at the root for it’s always this way over all the years.

I leave before I hear the dull thud…of contact

So, that, I only enjoy the beauty.

Caught in a Wind Storm — Wednesday, December 1, 2021

We had a bit of a wind, the other day…a whipping you in the face wind

Not a gentle hum of rustling leaves wind

But a PICK everything UP and FLING it around party wind

A get dirt in your face, eyes, and ears  —   wind.

Sometimes winds are like that—over the top, flicking you with ‘stuff’.

As the Land Passes Toward Slumber — Tuesday, November 30, 2021

We give Thanks for the gifts that God(s) give to us

During this growing twilight time of year

For every season there is something to provide joy for each of us

Blessings of abundance

As the Autumn fades and we begin

our long ride into the dark of Winter.

From my world to your heart,



Up There, All Swirly and Curly—Monday, November 29, 2021

There!  Right there in the crisp air was a large swirly, twirly cloud

Magic so close.  Almost touchable!
