“I have learned to be happy where I am. I have learned that locked within the moments of each day are all the joys, the peace, the fibers of the cloth we call life. The meaning is in the moment. There is no other way to find it. You feel what you allow yourself to feel, each and every moment of the day.”
~ Russ Berrie

a quiet Sunday

quiet sunday-a lazy sunday

“Quiet is peace. Tranquility. Quiet is turning down the volume knob on life. Silence is pushing the off button. Shutting it down. All of it.”
~ Khaled Hosseini

on the dining room wall.
I’ve noticed the light changing
as we reach mid September

there was a beautiful breeze yesterday
I watched the leaf shadows
blow and sway across the wall.

Two of our backyard creatures
one in the front yard, the other in the back
both so different
yet both magnificent
both keep a watchful eye on me while I weed the gardens
one is just a bit more intimidating than the other  🙂
