...until you decide...

this is a giant block
of whatever is most difficult
for you to carry & trust me on this,
you'll carry it more times
than you can count
until you decide that's exactly
what you want to do most

& then it won't weigh
a thing anymore.

many backyard shadows today.
coffee is with.
a happy soul this morning.
the sun.
is shining.
the birds.
are singing.
the rocker is creaking.
the butterfly.
is fluttering.
the coffee.
is hot.
and i .
am content.
may you be happy in your space today.
may you have a happy soul.
just BE.

A lovely thread of tranquillity sings through your photos! My favourite is the rock photo with the varied shadow patterns seeming to symbolise the patterns of many lives. And love your coffee thoughts too!

When we walk and contemplate amongst nature, our minds are now clear, the daily distractions disappear. We then admire the sun and shadow of flora or other things...the frog seems a bit angry, perhaps he ought to take the yard in and relax, not with a smile but at lease without his scowl...a great day start with a walk around your lovely yard, with a quiet beginning, So nice!


I really like the green shadow at the top! Great composition, too!

Finding contentment is a real treasure. The world and our souls are at peace when we reach the point of contentment. If only we would allow ourselves to remain there.
Love your photos, as always they are amazing and your words inspiring!
I always enjoy my visits here.
