{Sleeping In The Forest}

I thought the earth remembered me, she took me back so tenderly, arranging her dark skirts, her pockets full of lichens and seeds. I slept as never before, a stone on the riverbed, nothing between me and the white fire of the stars but my thoughts, and they floated light as moths among the branches of the perfect trees. All night I heard the small kingdoms breathing around me, the insects, and the birds who do their work in the darkness. All night I rose and fell, as if in water, grappling with a luminous doom. By morning I had vanished at least a dozen times into something better. - Mary Oliver

{An Armful of Sweetness}

“We are mosaics. Pieces of light, love, history, stars... Glued together with magic and music and words.” ― Anita Krizzan I just love everything about this picture taken at my sister's wedding. Grandpa holding his sweet, curly headed cutie tight in his arms. Sharing with her a special moment. Her eyes glued with the 3 year old wonder on something as simple as a jingle bell. People are mosaics and just beautiful. I tear up a tad, feeling lucky enough to record a moment as perfect as this one.

{Tap Tap}

“To be great, be whole; Exclude nothing, exaggerate nothing that is not you. Be whole in everything. Put all you are Into the smallest thing you do. So, in each lake, the moon shines with splendor Because it blooms up above.” ― Fernando Pessoa, Poems of Fernando Pessoa

{On this Thursday}

Oh life. Thank you for your beauty. Thank you for reminding me how lucky we are to be part of something so big-Tyler Knott Gregson I'm coming to a place where I am more solid in my belief of something larger than myself that guides the universe. It's something I've always looked for, being of the more sensitive nature. There have been times where I have written anything off. It brought moments of sadness and feeling as if I was working through the motions. Something would always happen that would renew my faith. When I stand in faith, the light enters and so does purpose. Most days than not I believe in a God and/or a Universal Force that is Love. Past that I can't say or define what it could be. But it's there and I'm so grateful.

{Shine On}

“Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.” ― Rumi Festive Holiday Bokeh is what I'm grateful for today. I would also say that this picture might be a good visual for how my brain works. More specifically a brain that just finished working at a crazy busy flower shop the day before Thanksgiving. Yowza! Lots of exciting energy filled the ail. A day full of hard work and celebration.
