First Day of a New Year ~ 2009

As we enter a new year I offer heart felt wishes that life on our planet finds peace in the beauty of simple things
perhaps in the morning light:

Trusting that this sort of beauty enhances our ability to be kind, wise, generous of heart and considerate of all life:

There is something about light that can inspire inner intimacy
once this is experienced
affinity with the world is possible

May 2009 bring many blessings to our world~

  8. I am still positive that you do not live on Earth and are just pretending. You must live in a magical land where everything is beautiful all the time.

  9. Wow, a tree house! Can I reserve a week or two there this coming summer? I could bring you a couple of kilos of lutefisk in exchange. What a deal, huh?

  15. Stine (star)~ sorry I wrote shine, but it went with star for me and I didn't notice.

    Linda ~ many a folk 'almost' like winter when they visit my love of winter.

    Dot O ~ I was so in awe of the snow against the dark sky and shadows that I almost forgot to take photos, almost. Ha, like that could happen.

    Muratt 11~ 'the times they are a changin' when I first moved here....I did not get on line in my wee cabin. Now the elves and fairies want to share the beauty, and for many a reason.
