I Choose.

 I choose light when the echoes of the day carry darkness.


I choose laughter when confronted with bleakness.



I choose to encourage optimism when gloom hovers near.


I choose the promise of tomorrow when a lapse of judgment troubles me. 


I choose compassion when animosity fills the air.



I choose love when sorrow invades.


I choose to give when inundated with greed.




I choose joy when unhappiness festers itself.





I choose to create as I witness neglect. 





I choose life as idleness stealthily approaches.







I choose.

What do you choose?

The Light is Changing and So Must I...


…it is evident as I walk to the garden...





…shadows criss-crossing the swing and field...


…darkness where there was once light...


…twinkling sunbeams struggling to get over the wooded border just in front of the stonewall...



…plants awaiting their bath of golden light...




…hydrangeas clasping the first glow and bees flocking to gather the season's last pollen….


…babies reaching their full potential...


…seeds dispersing from arms full of beauty...


…and shadows….glorious shadows….touching every surface.


I get teary at this time of year. Perhaps it's selfishness…my love for morning light and open windows…my freedom to structure my days as I choose…my adoration of blossoms and prettiness and life. Tidying the house and preparing meals on my schedule…not a chore but rather a joy. The kids coming and going…riding bikes and running through the yard. Birds and breezes and endless wonderful laundry :) I've bought my summer lottery ticket with hope and a prayer. And secretly wish that Ellen or Martha Stewart or Oprah want to sponsor me as a stay at home mom. My summer wish. Again and forever.

Awaken

What makes your heart beat a little faster?


What makes you FEEL a little more...


…UNDERSTAND a smidgeon better...


…INTERPRET with an air of grace?


What CALLS to you in your dreams...



…yet fully CAPTIVATES you while your eyes are wide open?




What CAUSES you to look to the Heavens...




…while WHISPERING a teary thank-you?


What is the gift that has CAPTURED your very soul...

 

… yet has MERGED with it to become an innate part of who you are and will be forever more?



For me, it is the garden, the open sky, the wooded path, the hay-filled field.



It is nature. 


Awaken.
