being~ sunday afternoon, jan. 30
yesterday. beautiful. adventure.
lucky me and my man and my best friend.....
we took a little boat ride over to one of the spoil islands behind masonboro and got a taste of the good life~
besides the beautiful landscape, bright blue sky, an osprey nest, soft grass to nap in and the sun beaming down, we found some of the best climbing trees ever~ this little gem is just what we all needed to get a taste of spring and remind us just how blessed we are....(just in case we forgot). if i ever run away from home, this is where i will run to. just for a little while~
right here. there's no need to travel too far searching for a beautiful place, or for an adventure to nurture the soul. we are surrounded by beauty and nature and awesome friends.
"earth teach me"
"earth teach me stillness
as the grasses are stilled with light.
earth teach me suffering
as old stones suffer with memory.
earth teach me caring
as a mother secures her young.
earth teach me courage,
as the tree which stands alone.
earth teach me limitation
as the ant which crawls on the ground.
earth teach me freedom
as the eagle which soars in the sky.
earth teach me resignation
as the leaves which die in the fall.
earth teach me regeneration
as the seed which rises in the spring.
earth teach me to forget myself
as melted snow forgets its life.
earth teach me to remember kindness
as the dry fields weep in the rain."
