The Other Side of Life—Wednesday, December 7, 2016


I think, sometimes, of what could be on the other side of life….

It seems strangely quiet, although there are night sounds, we just don’t hear them in tones of ‘day ears’.  The night is full of thick shadows, but the day sky is full of clear light.  If we are lucky we can see the soft brilliance of the winging Canada geese.

It is in this spot of time I can I look into something that is a place of peace.   If death lies there, in that place, then I too, can say the other side is stunning.

From my world to your heart!

  1. What beautiful reflections & imaginings, Linda, set against the flight of the Canada geese.
    As you go into the cold of winter, I’m wondering if you would enjoy something I’ve created especially for my northern hemisphere friends and readers. It’s called the Winter Attunement, and is a home ritual & meditation to take you deeper into the heart of winter, and to feed your soul. Here’s the link, & I hope you don’t mind the suggestion:

  2. I really have tried to catch these evening skies, Linda, but as I have said, my camera is too weak. Besides, once I see a sky like this I’m usually driving and somehow it’s not appreciated by my fellowdrivers that I take a stand on the brakes and rush out to catch the sunset. Funny really how square people can be…..all in the eyes of the beholder, right Boomer?? Thank you, Linda!!
