    It is more that once I can absolve the distractions from my life that I can finally start thinking things through rationally as opposed to rashly. Sitting somewhere quiet, looking out at nature- I start to think of how beautiful but simple it all is and applying that as a...

    Appearances Can Be Deceiving

    Just south of our house is a very large, mature black cherry tree.  The main trunk splits into two trunks about a foot off the ground.  With the exception of a couple of dead branches, it seems to be a normal, healthy, majestic tree.   Two days ago, some time in...

    They say God is in the small things. I believe it is so. He gives us signs all the time, you just gotta know where to look. Look around you, pay attention.

    A Gentle Reminder...

    Whenever I'm in nature, it like a gentle nudge, telling me to stop stressing about the small insignificant things and just enjoy the moment. I'm reminded of the beauty in the world around me and find myself grateful for being here to witness it. :)

    A flock of birds flew overhead

    and passed from right above where I was standing. "Do they ever wonder where they are heading? Or if it's right or wrong to head that way? Or why even are they flying in the first place?" "No, dude, they don't think, they just fly." "Exactly, they just fly." Moral: Just fly...

    Patience And The Cold

    The cold arrived here a couple of weeks ago in dramatic fashion.  It blew in on a vicious northwest wind that made the big lake boil in fury, and the residents along the shore shudder in respect for its power.  When the front finally passed through and the...

    Anticipation

    Here in my part of the world, spring is taking her sweet time getting dressed.  I feel a slight twang of impatience each time I view a horizon filled with nude trees and barely a sign of a bud.  Yet, with each passing day, I hear her soft loving voice speaking to me...

    Danaus Plexippus

    We came across them in the driveway, two Monarchs locked in battle. Stop, I said, there on the ground, don’t hit them. Butterflies. Is there any creature more symbolic? More romantic? More hopeful? No. The colors against the gray of the pavement were so stark, so stunning. How...

    I am a great believer in nature and what she has to offer us. So many plants and herbs can cure sickness and ailments. As human's, we are still learning from nature. I would rather a natural remedy any day, to a man-made one. I think we still have a long way...

    Yes

    I love to just sit on a stump or in the grass and stare around at all the wonders. Watch the busy bugs move around or notice where how and why certain things grow. It's all very amazing.
