"As you listen to your spirit, peace follows. So follow your spirit. Build your foundation in your heart." ~ Sara Paddison
Oh! the 1st morning light is beautiful. Bright orange and red against the snow filled mountain ridge. Stunning...This mountain air is some sort of elixir. Fills the lungs clean and heart with possibilities... And the actual sunrise: Photo
Sky clean crisp blue. Orange gold clouds are moving left to right... Clouds moving so fast across my horizon. My heart (and camera shutter) thumping happy.
"The secret of seeing is to sail on solar wind. Hone and spread your spirit, till you yourself are a sail, whetted, translucent, broadside to the merest puff." ~ Annie Dillard
My God, that bright nearly full moon in the trees against the midnight blue sky is gorgeous: Gorgeous moon.... Golden glow along the ridge with fluffy clouds scattered. My prayers this morning are focused on peace... and love...
The Gorgeous Clouds are .a ceiling of midnight & sky blue cotton balls this morning. Stunning... So peaceful... & lovely. A feeling of goodness. Happiness... Now roaring red orange. Passion... I can't do justice to the sky. It is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen...
"Focus on what you know you can do. Know what you’re capable of on any given day, and what you can count on. Do the simple things well, and then use the confidence to build up the rest of your game." ~ Mia Hamm
Rather nippy out here... Can the sun be more golden? The sky more blue? Something about the cold makes my heart shine through...
Gentle snowflakes and another magical sunrise. Some sort of optical wonder...
Ice on back deck... Numb fingers and face. But who cares?
"Words of encouragement fan the spark of genius into the flame of achievement. Legend tells us that Lincoln’s dying mother called her small son to her bedside and whispered, ‘Be somebody, Abe’." ~ Wilfred A. Peterson
Ahh the gray clouds have moved in. It's snowing in Asheville. Above me, a patch of blue...Beautiful!
"Lovely snowflakes, they fall nowhere else!" ~ Zen Saying
Good beautiful morning! Dawn's first light reveals snow on the back deck and a sky to welcome the sun rise...Lovely quiet. Aloha in the air. Christmas tree lights and fresh coffee. Snow on the ground. Time for prayers and gratitude.
Don't know about sunrise this morning, but the cloud show is miraculous.
"I love the clouds... the clouds that pass by... over there... over there... those lovely clouds!" ~ Charles Baudelaire
Okay, I am dressed like an Eskimo because it is really cold on the deck this morning... But 1st light is magnificent... No stars, just gray clouds. And prayers of blessings... Shapes and glow inspire me to (finally) write that overdue letter to my childhood friend in NYC... Clouds, my heart, glow...
"What a grand thing to be loved; what a grander thing still to love. The heart becomes heroic through passion. It is no longer composed of anything but what is pure; it no longer rests upon anything but what is elevated and great." ~ Victor Hugo
