Gone and it’s OK

My juggling act came to an end this May. Probably for awhile. I’m 300 blog notifications behind and I am spending most of my time outdoors. I will be somewhere between mowing the lawn, planting garden, finishing up our little cabin in the woods and being in a canoe in the wilderness. I have intentionallyContinue reading “Gone and it’s OK”

Shaping the Slow Edge

There’s a place where my zero to 60 lifestyle each day simmers down to almost nil for a week at a time. I personally need an edge and speed doesn’t do it. This is me I’m talking about. Your place to slow down, regroup, recover (or however you say it) and recharge your life isContinue reading “Shaping the Slow Edge”

Life in the edges

Edges. We are drawn there. Shorelines, sunrises and sets, mountain peaks, field and woods edges, seasonal changes/overlaps. Edges make life exciting. We want to live on the edge, Okay, some more than others. We celebrate edges. Births, birthdays, first day of schools and lasts of every kind and species of edge draw us. News edges,Continue reading “Life in the edges”

Nibbles and Sips Storm-sided

40 hours ago I tilled my garden as all the snow in that space had melted. Even the earthworms and night crawlers were up as the frost has come out of the ground. A couple hours ago I took the header picture from our front deck. I won’t be planting seeds today. It’s still snowing.Continue reading “Nibbles and Sips Storm-sided”

Seeing is Believing Maybe Sometimes

I feel quite little, as in small, as I am watching tons of snow falling out of the sky here in Minnesota. Forecasters giddy with bad news have predicted 12-24 inches in the next couple of days. At the present rate nonstop it will double that (I have faith in the brilliant forecasters accuracy though…_______________???).Continue reading “Seeing is Believing Maybe Sometimes”

Navigating Winds Seasons

Clattering branches snows lost in thought shifting blame winds of the soul I’m waiting for Spring. Wanting another season. Nature says not yet. Gary ┬áBut you, O Lord, know me; you see me, and test my heart toward you. Jeremiah 12:3a, ESV

Life On Deck

There were two Hittites, Sven and Ole, who dearly loved baseball. They loved the sport so much that a pact was made between them. They each promised the other that whomever died first would come back and tell the other if there was baseball in heaven. Well, time went on and Sven was in anContinue reading “Life On Deck”

Rambling Like a Rabbit Chasing five Blades of Grass in the Wind

David of Davids Daily Dose used my other lake sundogs picture today (All Haiku, click here) My favorite I think. I have been surprised to see that my photos posted on Unsplash for free download have hit 2.4 million views and 13,000 downloads. Most pleasing is when I see pictures put to good use.

Combined Beauty pageant

Sunday thought: God combined fall and winter. I think He loves creative beauty and wants us to enjoy those moments. Even the micro fleeting beauty of a reflection in a raindrop can be enjoyed should we pause to do so. A pause to enjoy gives us pause to delve deeper into who our creator isContinue reading “Combined Beauty pageant”
