Storm damage.

I tried to take my usual walk around the pond between shifts and trees were downed from last night’s storm.

I climbed over and around 3 of them to lose to the 4th because of too plentiful poison ivy. I’m already treating a large patch of poison oak on my arm from Katherine having brought me a leaf and smearing it on the inside of my elbow. I just didn’t want to risk another large patch of itchy rash.

Anyway, since I couldn’t do my normal laps of  walking, I took a bunch of pictures, including a whole bunch of pictures of the Great Blue Heron which has returned to the pond for this season. There is also a Green Heron but I couldn’t get close enough to it for pictures, last week I managed a couple of blurry ones. I tried to catch fish in my pictures but the water has darkened and I don’t think I caught them very well. Last week I caught a few fish, so I’ll post both rounds of pictures. I was buzzed by a Vulture several times and caught it in one of the Heron pictures, it was really a good albeit exercise free lunch break.

Then I went to work early to sit on their pub patio which has a wonderful overhang for shade. I watched a mother Red House Finch feed her babies. There were 4 nests in view, but only one momma was brave enough to visit with me sitting watching. It was a good relaxing moment.

May you have good bird watching and time in nature. May you be blessed with awe and wonder of all the beautiful creatures around us. May you have good relaxing moments and enjoy the weather as much as possible. May you have good days mostly.

Om Shanti

This week:

Lunchtime walk

Fall pretties. A walk outside may not be considered fun, but is still very enjoyable. My favorite was finding the oak leaf with the heart shape in it.

May you enjoy some time outdoors this fall. May you find beauty around you. May you have ample exercise in pleasing environments. May you enjoy your days mostly.

Beauty Full Ways

A walk amidst sun’s warmth

Cottonwood seeds float

Wind and sunbeams stir their dance

Echoes of barely visible fairies

Fantasy dreams stirred

Memories of youthful conversations

Among dust flecked fairies in sunbeams

It is all beauty full

Dragons and damsels fly

Buzzing and swirling

Over mossey coated

Aqua ripples

Birds sing as vultures circle

Snakes take cooling dips

Fish jump as Toads croak

It is all

So very

Beauty Full

Thistles and chamomile

Lilies and roses

Hostas and pansies

From wild untamed

To meticulously cultivated

Blooms and Branches

It is all so very

Beauty Full

Give thanks

Gratitude and appreciation

God did good

It is all good

Pleasure for

Eyes and ears

Mind and soul

A moment of

Awe and wonder

One human’s view

A small fraction

Of infinite wonder

A moment in

Endless time

Beauty Full

Endlessly So

If only

The observer

Was too
