I had the wonderful opportunity go out tonight, and take several photographs of the sunset, which was beautifully colorful.


I almost didn’t go out tonight.  I was contemplating getting up early to do the sunrise, but I had this feeling that I should go out and take some pictures.  I’m glad I listened to the “feeling”.  Just looking at the color in the east and reflections off the buildings, it was looking pretty awesome.   It’s pretty nice being in walking distance of Lake Harriet.

Good Night: 08/21/2016

What a wonderful Day!

Today I got to babysit my Niece and Nephew.  We went for a walk, and played in the park. Then both went down for a nap after lunch, and then we all went to a block party.  We had some Sebastian Joe’s Ice Cream.  Much fun was had by all.

Amazon Prime is “evil”.  But I would say if you don’t have it, it’s well worth the investment.   I’m learning some hard lessons lately.  I’m grateful for them, because they are lessons I needed to learn.

In Love, Namaste….

How is everyone’s Morning?  Did the sun rise?  Has it set?  Where are you in the World?  Where are you in YOUR World?  How are you in YOUR World?

The Rain comes, The Sun Rises.  Life Happens.  The Sun Sets.  It’s what you do in between that counts.  Enjoy the Moment.  Get up and enjoy the day.

While I may not feel like it when rolling out of bed, I do actually enjoy the morning before most of the populace gets up.  The morning is crisp.  It’s like the Earth hasn’t woken yet, and the Humans are still sleeping.  The ozone from vehicles hasn’t permeated the air yet, and the day is new.  If you haven’t taken a moment just to stand, and let you senses be your eyes, you should.  Close your eyes, and let your heart see for you. It can be an awesome experience.

Remember You are Loved.  You are Cherished.  You are Holy.  You are Divine.  You are Awesome.  You are Worth It.  You are Love.  You are my kind of Weird.  I am Grateful for you.  I Appreciate You.  I Love You. Thank You.  You are Welcome.

In Love, Namaste

Today: 08/20/2016

Today was a fine example of the storms that come into our lives.  They come with such power, or they can come with a whimper.  But they come just the same.  They interrupt what we may expect at the time.  They march to their own tune, but they come just the same.  They shake up things, they provide nourishment, and they are a force to be reckoned with.

One can ride the storm and be strengthened by it, or one can be knocked around and weakened by it.  It’s all up to you which way it goes.  Storms carry their own awesome beauty and awesome power.   You can see them coming.  Feel it in the Earth.  Smell it on the Wind.  You can always sense a storm coming, and sometimes it has nothing to do with nature, and everything to do with you.

When I lived in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin I used to sit on the car port, and watch the storms come in.   I could sit under the port and feel the power of them.  At the time we lived on the edge of town, so we could see the storms coming in from the west over the prairie and farms.   It was awesome to watch.  From Sun Prairie we went to Virginia.  I used to say we traded tornadoes for hurricanes.

Nature is Awesome and Beautiful in her power regardless of whether it’s a sunset or rise, a beautiful day, a blizzard, or a rainy day with thunder.  She’s beautiful.  Accepting her and enjoying what she has to offer with out complaint can change the way you look at life.  You may even begin to see similarities in places you least expect.
