...crimson shadows...

~from the book
My Stroke of Insight
by jill bolte taylor, ph.d.
(The author had a stroke, she is a brain scientist, it took her eight years to recover fully. Her story is amazing.)
" Based upon my experience with losing my left mind,
I whole-heartedly believe that the feeling of deep inner peace
is neurological circuitry located in our right brain.
This circuitry is constantly running
and always available for us to hook into.
The feeling of peace is something that happens
in the present moment.
It's not something that we bring with us from the past
or project into the future.
Step one to experiencing inner peace is the
willingness to be present
in the
right here,
right now."
on that happy note...

HEY HARRIET for great

what is your step one today?

That's what's wrong with me...I'm missing my left wonderful to fill each day with the peace and serenity of just being...

even as winter is at our doorstep, I've grown so much this past year, learning to live each second with the breath of a new day always waiting to be discovered and lived...

I breathe it all in like it's my last...thanks for being a part of my being, you and your Momma...hey Tilda!!!

Have a wonderful fallish weekend enjoying those beautiful scarlet shadows...I know I will!

Beautiful colors and shadows.
Reading above me and saw about the spider web..Well, didn't read right and kept looking at the shadow pictures and couldn't figure it out. Then, the light went on..look below. That is a lovely picture.
Happy SSS.

I think that we tend to view shadows as a dark gray that the sun merely replicates onto the ground. However, the shadows on these colorful leaves lets us see the colors through the shadows. Lovely!

Hey Harriet said...

Very wise words by Jill Bolte Taylor. Thanks for sharing them! Your photos are beautiful as ever!

Ok, I must check out the spider's web now :)
