because I stand alone on the shore
looking out, waiting and watching
does not mean I’m lonely
I stand alone, because it is early in the day
and in my own way
it is a time for me to pray
to stand alone looking out into the vastness of your wonders
encourages me to be strong
to embrace the distance of tomorrow
and to live today, like the waters in this river
allowing the currents to gently take me
with each wave, gently and resolutely towards
whatever shoreline you guide me to.
I know I am never really alone, for always you find a way to let me know you are listening
It is true, sometimes the world takes on a different hue
But…. always, and this is true…. always, I see the wonder that is YOU
I know I am never alone, for YOU are always with me
whether I stand, sit or lie, you are by my side
you take me where I need to be
like the tree, I am rooted in YOU
I extend my arms into your infinity
with the knowledge that
I am a but a part of the whole
Along this same shoreline, where I had been standing musing, I had moments before been along this stretch of the island, and to my wonder and joy had an encounter with a blue heron. To awed to grab for the camera, I simply drunk in the moment, as he/she up and flew away.
PL Precept # 1 – Life is Art.
PL Precept # 2 – To live is to express one’s Self.
Every day is a new canvas, on which we can express ourselves in our own way, We are all different, each one of us is unique, yet we are all connected, we are all ONE
Three years ago, I would never had been up and out walking like I am now.. I would never have had occasion to meet the wonderful people I meet now as I wander the woodlands, rivers and parks…AND I would not have reconnected with Nature the way I do now, or known and seen the wildlife that I am now. NOW is a powerful moment in time.
Much love from my heart to yours.

I agree. Being alone does not equal being lonely.
good morning.. I’m actually being more “playful” with the camera..I’m “seeing” things differently too when it comes to how I’m interacting with it. little steps.. but I sense a shift. Hi hope you are getting the nice wee-end we are.. waves and sends a big virtual hug..
Hello there. Being more playful wih the camera is good. It’s best not to get stuck in any ruts. It will help you learn new things. It’s looking like it will be a good weekend here. i hope it’s the same there. Hugs.
how is the writing coning along? sending happy hugs your way
Well. i am preparing a post about it. I’m a third of the way through a second draft and taking a memoir writing class this summer. Thank you and have a great day.
A marvelous renewal and rebirth!
Thanks Eliza. I’ve ordered in a camera to take a look at. I’d like a little more “power” but the same features, I’ve finally made my choice.. the Nikon has connected with me the most..I’m able now (I think) to use it more like an extension of creative thinking. If that makes sense .. actually get excited at the possibilities .. and the “moments” that I snap.. I feel are “different’
Here we are another Saturday, hope all is well at your end.. You must be surrounded with blooms. HUGS
I look forward to seeing what you capture… it is fun using a good camera, and getting a pleasing shot.
With all this rain (more than 7 inches in July so far) and heat, the garden is exploding! 🙂
