NH moment

P1000717 (1)

New Hampshire on an early morning walk.  It is May, I’m taking my time enjoying the fresh morning air, not thinking about anything else but the moment.

Only now am  getting to see some of the pictures I took during our time away. A holiday is time for me to wander, some pictures were taken with my Lumix, others with my iPhone.  Slowly I will get to them, for tonight, I wanted to drop in and say hi… I’ve missed you all.  It wasn’t till we were on our way back today that I gave in and bought an Acer Notebook, sorry to all you Apple peeps, I simply can’t work away on an iPad like I can a Windows/PC…

You won’t see a lot of sunshine, just a lot of fresh mountain air, and the fresh new buds of new sprouts. When the windows were open we could hear the crystal clear water cascading down the mountain side through the gorge.  Looking out from out two side windows, all we saw was the drop down to the forest floor.  Already the bears have started to stir, one guest who stayed in one of the back “cabin/rooms” saw a bear wandering in the wooded area, in back of the Inn a few days before we arrived.  We were advised not to let our dogs off leash or unattended.

We did drive down one day into the southern part of NH, where the bigger cities are, we didn’t stay long, a few hours. that was all we needed before we high tailed it back up north into the National Forest area, where we were staying,  Holidays are never long enough, but, we know we will go back, and really, I missed being home, and chatting with you.  Go figure. I love my time with you.  Makes me feel good.  Now I’ll be able to catch up on what you all have been doing.

It is late in the day, but to all the Mother’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day.

Exotic Bali + meditation

Bali,ayana resort and spa

Tropical beach, look at that water, this is the Ayana Resort and Spa in Bali.  Hmmm I have a friend who is on holiday in Bali, she has been sending back the most incredible pictures.  Her face beams in every picture where she is in them. Got me thinking, admittedly some of the pictures had me thinking ahhhh yes, a massage by the pool, then a lazy afternoon enjoying the tropical sunshine and breezes.

Chile

This is Huilo, Huilo in Neltume,  lodges built on a biological reserve, they are environmental wonders.  they are uniquely in touch with their surroundings… perfect for nature lovers, lots of hiking, exploring, totally different kind of holiday.

Bali

This is a picture found on 500px.com,  of Dawn in Bali by Ko Zaw………………….. does this calm the mind or what.. Ok, today I’ll go with the calm, quiet atmosphere of the gentle waters and soothing sounds provided by the beaches and coastline of the areas shown in these pictures to colour my day.
We can’t always be where we might like to be at any given moment in time, but we can thanks to the technology today, be where our hearts take us.  The destination is usually coordinated by our  often busy chattering minds.  In taking the time for a quiet moment, the mind will sigh with relief…. share with me a quiet moment… allow your thoughts to travel with mine in to the depth of the blues and greens, see the little white pebble like shapes, the tiny bird,… then allow you eyes to drift beyond towards the horizon, …. feel your breathing , enjoy the soft swell of your chest as you silently allow the moment to wash over you.

Take this shared moment, the soft, sweet tenderness of now… and carry it into your day…

bali, lagoon villa

Seriously, luxury lagoon villa, for those of you who needed a different visual.. now did that get a smile……

Carry the smile all through the day.. you’ll see it is catching.

Short meditations work, whether you want them to or not.

Namaste      –      Oyashikiri
