Observing As I Go


So be sure when you step, 
Step with care and great tact. 
And remember that life's 
A Great Balancing Act. 
And will you succeed? 
Yes! You will, indeed!

Kid, you'll move mountains.

Bird Chatter Required


Male Cardinal in the Pines 

In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don't try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.

Watching and Waiting



Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. 
Where there is hatred, let me sow love, 
Where there is injury, pardon; 
Where there is doubt, faith; 
Where there is despair, hope; 
Where there is darkness, light; 
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
 to be understood as to understand,
 to be loved, as to love.
― St. Francis of Assisi

Seldom can the heart be lonely, 
If it seek a lonelier still;

Our simple acts of kindness, and our good thoughts and intentions, can and will transform the world, one moment at a time, and one person at a time.

A Thrill of Pleasure


White-breasted Nuthatch 

The birds around me hopped and played,

 It seemed a thrill of pleasure.
