...just BE. sunshine...




“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
 Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
 The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
 and the storms their energy,
 while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” 
― John MuirThe Mountains of California

autumn is so brief in michigan.
tomorrow.
we are having ninety degree temps.
happy first day of fall.
 michigan.

Fight against the urge to rush. Savor experiences,  explore their meanings, learn from them. Take time to register your feelings. Turn experience into wisdom.

...just BE. still...



these are multiple shadows because
there were a lot of things she walked
away from without a word of explanation
when she was younger & she still
thinks about them more than she needs to.
~Storypeople

i love evening shadows.
unfortunately, they are more prevalent.
earlier in the evening.
enjoy the moments.

...just BE. woven...




humankind has not woven
the web of life.
we are but one
thread within it.
whatever we do to the web
we do to ourselves.
all things are bound together.
all things connect.

We can't seek justice through idleness:
We must take action.
But our action must be motivated
by wisdom and compassion.
This is how real change takes place.

...just BE. awareness...


“As it is, we are merely bolting our lives—gulping down undigested experiences as fast as we can stuff them in—because awareness of our own existence is so superficial and so narrow that nothing seems to us more boring than simple being.  If I ask you what you did, saw, heard, smelled, touched and tasted yesterday, I am likely to get nothing more than the thin, sketchy outline of the few things that you noticed, and of those only what you thought worth remembering. Is it surprising that an existence so experienced seems so empty and bare that its hunger for an infinite future is insatiable? But suppose you could answer, “It would take me forever to tell you, and I am much too interested in what’s happening now.” How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes, such enchanted musical instruments as the ears, and such a fabulous arabesque of nerves as the brain can experience itself as anything less than a god? And, when you consider that this incalculably subtle organism is inseparable from the still more marvelous patterns of its environment—from the minutest electrical designs to the whole company of the galaxies—how is it conceivable that this incarnation of all eternity can be bored with being?”
~ Alan Watts, The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are

...just BE. welcome...




I knew God loved me when I held my son
in my arms for the first time
but I didn't know he adored me
until I held my first grandchild from my son.


if this doesn't explain.
my desire to just BE.
nothing will.
please welcome.
Kaidence Christine.
