Returning to the Mountain


It was wonderful coming home a few days ago to find the Mountain Laurel in full bloom. I was returning from the Southwest, so the lush verdant life of New York in early June was particularly soothing! The cool, moist mountain air also felt like a healing balm. I spent most of the first day back just being in the woods. My batteries needed recharging!


So I apologize for being absent from this blog for awhile (I was happily caring for my three wonderful grand- children). I am back and excited to see where these musings on beauty, the universe, inner peace, unity consciousness and transformation go! I hope they brighten your day and help strengthen your connection to our sacred earth, all life and your deepest self. I hope they, like my Waking Planet flag, remind you of the peace available within you and in our world. May you find inspiration here for believing in yourself, opening your heart and making the contribution that only you can make to create a more loving and just future!



I was also thrilled that a lovely blue heron was part of my first day welcoming committee.

Peace to you!

Barbara -

I'm so glad you're home! But that's a lovely photo of you with your (?) granddaughter.
I hope to be standing vigil with WIB tomorrow, but I'm also planning to attending the opening ceremony (local strawberries and a cold swim) of the Minnewaska Distance Swimmers Association which begins at 11 tomorrow. So - if I can make it to the vigil, I'll see you tomorrow.

Much love,
Shirley

Yes, that is my darling granddaughter. Local berries and a cold swim sound delightful- Enjoy! And perhaps I'll see you at vigil or coffee.
