Holiday Balance

December 5, 2013

Cmas 2013

The days have been hectic since the last post. I had several blogs in the works, and then all was put aside for the joyful preparations of Thanksgiving’s family gathering and a major deadline still in the works. And now arises the next holiday.

During the coming days, most of us will be, if you aren’t already, overcome with a list of Christmas tasks. New on my list this year is to send a ‘few’ greeting cards. It’s been years since I mailed Christmas cards. Family members will be shocked. Small as this task seems, I now wonder what inspired me to take on yet another project. Perhaps it was Vista Print’s irresistible special.

There are holiday events I’d like to attend. Scenes I’d like to capture. But sometimes we have to put our desires aside to bring balance and rest into our lives.

Today is one of those days when physical needs and holiday preparations push the normal everyday tasks (and my impending deadline) to the far left. I have a hunch your December days are the same or soon will be. So I share this amazing beauty outside my back door. I hope you feel the gift of joyful balance and rest in this photo or more importantly in something or someone near and dear to you.

Merry Christmas!

Autumn’s Light Series: Photo 5

November 18, 2013
The perfect star to end this series! What delightful images the season’s rays brings to us. All we have to do is look for the magic.
When life takes you on a gallop you despise,
your soul turns cranky and bitter,
and your spirit feels old and weary,
look up into the sky and let your heart
ride the clouds like an angel unafraid to fly.
As you glide through the organic firmament,
look down at your earthly home
and all the good in your life,
then laugh at your irrational qualms,
and feel the unpleasant weight subside.
Incline your mind, then, your body too,
in a life-walk that causes you to sing a song,
dance under a star, and spend no more time
bound in useless moods or doleful misgivings.

A warm garnish beneath my nose.”

until the rains come.

At autumn’s end

I am glad for the rest.”
