Appreciation

IMG_9211

Something about seeing horses as I drive past them really attracts my attention.  In some ways I am fortunate to live in a part of a city which still has outlying swaths of land that have not been swallowed up by developers. These healthy horses are a testament to animals adapting to the sprawl of suburbia, yet still enjoy the fruits of the good earth. I sincerely hope you have such a blessing around you. Whether living in an urban jungle or enveloped in total solitude, one can find beauty amongst the environment. However, one must have eyes wide open to see, and a heart to appreciate. I am most fortunate, indeed.

 

Fire in the Sky !

“Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams                                                     Seeking grace in every step he takes                                                                                     His sight has turned inside himself to try to understand                                                         The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

And the Colorado rocky mountain high                                                                                     I’ve seen it raining fire in the sky                                                                                               You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply                                                                   Rocky mountain high…”
