my youth

it was a vivid picture in my mind of wandering laying on my bed waiting for life to start. new beginnings wrapped up in coming of age stepping off buses climbing rocky mountains. to see the other side of life a world seen broadly with parachutes and good shoes to land safely on my feet. [...]

our bridge

the bridge that built between us extended beyond our expectations. a friendship valued as family a spirit connected through lifetimes. i am thankful to have you in my life. a love deeper than any film portrayal a kindness more sweet than rose petals a generosity as selfless & innocent as a child. thank you

summer begins.

life is beautiful like this. exploring nature to the night and being young and happy no matter our age. no matter the time. to appreciate life as it is. fully. thanks for sharing Beth.

I didn't have my glasses on....

summer begins

up north

with joyful grandie

up late

catching the sunset

in his net. 

“summertime is a period for youthful explorations,

a joyful time when we learn lessons

without grand expectations or harsh consequences.”

words for you

spitting out words, seeing where they end up, reflecting back at me gazing tender smiles and tearful sentiments. moments are to be cherished. like all is well with the sun and moon, nights on the beach with ocean waves saying farewell for another well done day. no matter what happened. no matter the successes. because [...]

Happy Earth Day.

cnw

Redwoods was comfortable, but at times it took my breath away because of the exhilarating beauty. 

I feel so connected to something so close to my source, my soul. Redwoods gave me peace and calm.

One hike here is not like another. It’s all a different experience.

Fern Canyon

Smith River

The Redwoods changed me. I felt so much peace and connection to the area and the trees. The air reminds me of being at mom and dad’s house and the sea breeze.

Banana slug

…I even love the banana slugs, even though in the past slugs have creeped me out so much.

I was skeptical of coming at all. I thought maybe it’d be too long to be in one place, but I adored it. No access to phone and internet made it easy to relax and chill.

Droplets of Time

so good.

WORDS IN THE LIGHT

They were not mere raindrops
sliding down my father’s car windows.
They were colliding and merging worlds.
A game of creation and annihilation.

Droplets of Time, tears of the Soul.
My father’s car is long gone
but I still wonder at the power
of a child’s imagination.

And when it starts raining
there are neither where nor why.
The Silence in my heart helps me
to clarify some of Life’s great mysteries.
