This

Photo found here

It is 
here
inside the buzz
and beat and blink
and breath
inside
the soft wings
of stillness

There is nothing
there is nothing 
but this.

  1. Today, practicing Wordlessness, I laid on the grass under a tree and stared up into it's branches. I picked a leaf and make it the center of my attention, than widened my attention to everything - my tree and some others - then played (only barely successfully) with what was foreground and what was background.

    When I got tired (after about 10 minutes because I'm a newbie), I started reading and, no kidding, the tree through a twig at me. It landed on my belly... and it made me laugh.

    A more playful, silly version of THIS. <3

  2. We have Rocky Mountain Bee Plants in our front flower bed, a foot taller than I am and covered with bees every morning, all through the day. I was out this morning taking pictures, hypnotized by the buzzing. I couldn't stop watching them. Soft animal bodies...

  4. So wonderful.

    I have those times, often thank goodness, when I can be very still with the things around me, noticing the beauty of the stillness.

    Thank you for always always saying the things I may not nphave the words to say.
