Sunday Morning Reflections





I have,as it were, my own sun and moon and stars,and a little world all to myself. 

Henry David Thoreau



and that is how I often feel, living here in the canyon.......

  5. How great to feel like Thoreau, he knew how to appreciate the world he lived in.

    There is beauty in nature, if we stop to see it. Too often, we don't. You're an observer, Inger, and you document. I wouldn't have seen all those critters that stopped by your veggie garden if you hadn't shared that.

  6. I have always wondered about people who chose to live a different life like you - I have a friend who up and moved to Alaska. I think that quote helps me understand a bit. Thanks.

    is it okay if i ever visit to just maybe stand next to your trees and inhale, all the scents and sights and take it all in? You take lovely photos to make me want to do that...

  15. People who live in the midst of the noise of a city can't begin to realize what quiet and peace can do to one's body.

  20. Dear Inger, your canyon is so lovely. And your posting reminds me of the line of poetry that goes, "To see the world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wildflower; to hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour." Peace.
