Mindful, Day 257-258, Falling Leaves

This week has started with the honey locust tree dropping leaves like snowflakes.  Beautiful to watch the golden leaves falling  and covering the ground in all directions.

Mindfull, Day 256, Pattern and Color

At the Farmers Market this morning I see these gorgeous eggs - they look like they are meant for Easter. The farmer told me that she has chickens that lay pink and blue eggs. Who knew!  Just looking at them made me happy.

MIndful, Day 254-255, Marks of TIme

Having spent the majority of the last 3 days in a car driving through a myriad of construction zones I could not wait to come home, sit down, and look at some of the calming images that I am going to work on stitching soon. I am mindful that I need some time of peace and quiet to renew.  Hopefully tomorrow!

Mindful, Day 253, With the Time You Have Left

As we head out this morning to drive to West Virginia for the funeral of Larry's last sibling, and because I have just had another birthday, I find this article an approrpiate reminder to live gladly and richly.

Mindful, Day 252, Layers of Beauty

As I walked out of the studio today I noticed all the windows along the back part of the building were catching the light in a beautiful, soft, golden way. And even more interesting were the layers of shadows that I could see into and through.  I think I shot about 50 photos. can't wait to see what they might become. Or maybe I should just sit and look at them for a very long time.  I love the layers and the dissolving nature of the light.

Mindful, Day 251, Dizzying

Late afternoon sun creates a dizzying pattern on the back stairs. I felt like I was walking through the openings.

Mindful, Day 250, Sounds of Summer Evening

Late this afternoon I am sitting on the screen porch enjoying the sun inching down but mostly listening to all the sounds of late summer. A few small birds, especially the goldfinches twittering about, the low, steady hum of tree crickets, someone playing music over on the next street, the tree leaves waving in the breeze, traffic sounds undulating up and down.  I love the tree cricket sound - that constant, steady layer of sound feels like it just surrounds me as I sit here. Calming and relaxing. I will enjoy it while I can!
