Shh, listen. Can you hear that? It sounds like a babbling brook.
The nearest creek is six blocks away, yet the trickling sounds like a stream circling the entire house.
I follow my ears to find where this is coming from.
Good morning, afternoon or evening, for whichever time you read this post.
I had a brief and serene blog post scheduled for today, but then something happened. . .
I find Nature’s instinct and changes fascinating. Never afraid of what lies behind the corner as It dies and gives life once again.
Last summer I took lots of pictures of berries.
Hadn’t planned on posting today, but thought I’d share some photos I took of the moon last night. I didn’t doctor them. I just modified the size to fit in the blog better.
Sometimes pink pelicans wade silently on the surface of the lake in my neighborhood.
After sharing my views from a morning walk a couple of weeks ago, I thought I’d share some from our evening walk today.
Our Florida subdivision has a lot of different sub-subdivisions. The one from last week is the one I live in. We like to change things up on occasion and walk through different areas, so most of these photos are from another sub-subdivision across from ours. The homes there, circle a small man-made lake.

Most of you likely get to experience this every year, so these photos may be nothing new to you. But, oh how they tickle my soul and save the wonderful memory for me.
I pray and meditate every morning to start my day off with a clear head. This morning I did a little something different. I fell to the floor in tears to beseech Divine guidance for not only me, but the world. What is it we need to do to be at peace? What is it we need to do to keep the liberty that our Creator gave us?
Originally I had a more light-hearted blog planned for today, but I feel a darkness hovering over our world that I can’t shake. I felt a strong pull to express my concerns.
It’s been said that the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same things over and over while expecting different results. This is what humanity seems to do … keep repeating history. Are we humans insane?
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no … it’s Super Dragonfly!
No wait, it’s a hover craft and it’s scanning out my yard. Check out the craft’s copper body and golden wings (below). Continue reading “Look, Up in the Sky”
