Hello, dear superb friends! Just couldn’t resist taking another moment to bask in the genius of our sweet wonderful planet! Why is it that many of my best “moments of oneness” with the wonder of it all are inspired by the eyes of a dog or a child—even if that child is my own inner child?? Wink!
So today, it was just another innocent moment…I thought that I was merely taking my 3 handsome furry friends on a walk, but it became a journey into bliss…the sun was shining oh-so-perfectly—big beautiful poofy white clouds graced our global canopy…the perfect breeeze…next to my house the azaleas were overflowing with masses of bright fuchsia blossoms framed by an exquisite façade of the most delicate purple wildflowers in the meadow next to my house that you ever have seen…a duck “couple” was floating leisurely on the pond across the way…the neighborhood owl swooped across in the distance as if to say hello…as we approached the pond up the street, one of our alligator friends struck a GQ gator pose while soaking in the last remnants of the sun as three determined turtles squeezed their way onto a log and craned their necks in worship of the sun…(do turtles really need a tan?)….And then on the surface of the pond were these tiny little flashes of “circledom”…apparently even the insects are dancing in delight….
Overhead, is a small plane…someone is learning to fly… I giggle because the last thing that I yearn to do is to get into an airplane and suspend myself yet, to that person up there, this must be heaven…and how incredible that not too long ago, this was just a fantasy…did my grandparents look up into the sky and see a novice pilot gaining their wings?…yet, today, it fits into the harmony of the moment…meanwhile the “boys” are sniffing every blade of grass as if each scent holds the hidden treasure of eternity…each blade captivates them and I smile in awe of their passion… as they roll on their backs and deliciously rub the deepest of those scents into their fur, I am embraced in this grand tapestry of perfection.
I look up and see the trees and I smell the distant orange blossoms… I marvel in the knowledge that the Universe does indeed seem to have our backs…here are these “tiny things”…free for the taking…yet definite food for the soul…these are the gems in life…the things that make us say “ahhhhh” if we remember to see them….these are the “priceless” gifts that the planet offers without a fee…free for all—“rich” or “poor”….the world adapts and shifts and changes, but it finds a way to deliver beauty…and in that beauty is the promise of ease and all-is-wellness….we savored our wonderful walk and used it to put the pressures of the day on hold for a moment…when I walked inside the house, the phone rang and “the sound of” my daughter’s smile across the miles seemed that much more magnificent…the warmth of all the love in my heart seemed all the more encompassing…I was gratified with the knowing that life is indeed exquisite and that we have such a magnificent treasure chest of wonder before us….wishing you each the true kiss of the Universe upon your foreheads and as human as we may be, it’s all deliciously “perfect” and eternal….thank you for inspiring me so upon my own little journey…!
May your day be filled with hand-made clover crowns and may we each take a moment to kick off those ruby red slippers so that we can feel the grass between our toes! Wink (again)!
