So, I decided I needed to clear my thoughts by taking a walk and being mindful. As Thich Nhat Hanh said:
Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future.
If we can acknowledge our fear,
we can realize that right now we are okay.
Right now, today,
we are still alive,
and our bodies are working marvelously.
Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky.
Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.
And the miracles I saw changed my whole outlook...
|Deer Trail Down the Bank..|
|Joe Pye Weed. I saw this as a specimen in New England. Here, it is a weed!|
|A bird's nest, empty, blown from a tree. I collect them. What a gift!|
|This lovely let me photograph it and then flew above my head as I walked. Angel?|
