mother nature

Over the past couple days I was treated to a spectacular reminder of the beauty and power of mother nature. The Upper Hudson River and Schroon River both reached record flood stages and standing at the edge of these rivers listening to the roar and tumble waters , feeling the spray misting my face, watching the raw power and speed .....I was awestruck . what does a river care for time, or things. A river just flows sometimes high, sometimes low...but always moving, changing, becoming. A river just is a river, awesome, beautiful, strong,and free....sometimes calm , sometimes raging...but always powerful..

my favorite time of day.....

hush, let the silence speak
 words filling souls
create peace, contentment
centered being spiral out
power of silent words

liquid sunshine

awoke to drum beats keeping time for the universe
thunder shaking me from my dreamsleep
lightening flashing seconds of enlightenment
fresh cleansing springtime smelling green
glorious liquid sunshine
singing blooms into being

“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” Eleanor Roosevelt

Life is a series of choices. Some major , who you're going to marry, what your career will be. Some seemingly minor, what to wear today, what to have for breakfast. It's those "minor" choices that move your life forward , stagnate you, or move you two steps back. Everyday we make thousands of choices, each one leading to the next set of decisions. Major choices set our goals and put our dreams into achievable context, minor choices ...that's how we reach those goals and dreams. All the things you do from brushing your hair to turning left instead of right...they all have an impact on your life.  You are the choices you make in each moment. They shape and define you. Your choices show the world your true soul. Ultimately you are responsible for the decisions you make. There is no blame game." I had no choice" is a cop out..there is always a choice ; not liking the options does not negate the choice, sometimes you do choose the lesser of two evils or refrain from making a that choice. to quote one of the greatest rock bands ever (Rush) "if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice."
 You chose to be who you are today. If you are not happy with you..then you have the power to change that by making conscious choices that move you to the future you envision for yourself. Choose to be the best version of yourself. Choose to let your inner light be your guide. Choose to be happy. Choose to be...

"It is more than probable that I am not understood; but I fear, indeed, that it is in no manner possible to convey to the mind of the merely general reader, an adequate idea of that nervous intensity of interest with which, in my case, the powers of meditation (not to speak technically) busied and buried themselves, in the contemplation of even the most ordinary objects of the universe."
~Edgar Allan Poe~- from "Berenice
