{an unlived life}

A friend posted this beautiful poem from a book she was reading...{I choose to inhabit my days} <3


I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible;
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing, 
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance,
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.

~ Dawna Markova

{I crave}

I crave...

Tonight I went by the church around the corner from my house. I take a lot of photos there.
 A place I can see the sun set. In the summer, there is a meadow with lots of wild flowers. 
 A pond that reflects the sky. A beautiful garden with waterfalls and fountains. 
 All year long they have soft music playing in their outdoor sanctuary.

A few years ago I started my blog and began I journey of taking pictures to notice the beauty surrounding me every single day. This simple act made me take notice and appreciate so many things 
I would have overlooked otherwise.

It is with awe that I admire these every day happenings which leads me to acknowledge 
the magnificence & beauty of creation.

{treasure mapping}

I took some time this morning to do the treasure mapping using the nine baguas. A first for me. 
I kept them small to not get overwhelmed at the task. 
One thing I seem to be learning...small bites work so much better for me. 
I would normally take on too much and feel overwhelmed which many times has led to doing nothing.

{beauty & imperfection}

On my way to work after dropping off my son at school.  
The sun was trying it hardest to shine
but the clouds were winning today
so I enjoyed the beauty while it lasted.
These bare, old trees
caught my attention...
such beauty in imperfection.

{waning moon} & venus

Early this morning...the sky was graced with a beautiful waning
crescent moon and Venus.

Waning moon = a time for release.
