Together, We Are Better

Published August 19, 2017 by tindertender

Today I had every intention of attending the SHS reunion. I was up bright and early, to the car repair shop only to be told it is nothing to worry about. I went to the picnic my employer had today, showing up an hour early.

I left the picnic around 12:30 and and raced up 84 to the Bridge Of The Gods, paid my toll, and crossed. I had a wonderful vegan patty made with beets! It was delicious, side was a pear and lettuce salad with strawberry vinaigrette. I watched the Sternwheeler take off and said hello to Mr Big Foot.

On the way back to the vehicle I saw a statue in honor of Sacagawea, it is beautiful!!

I drove to the old homestead, in fact, beyond, where I saw a peculiar sign.

Now what do you suppose they mean by an “Experimental Forest”? I grew up on this river, majestic, cold, sweet waters. The power these waters hold is awesome. I am curious if the current residents have been told anything of the nature of this experimental forest. Are these GMO trees? If so, how will they affect the wildlife? Does the community get a say-so in the health and well-being of their wilderness, their home?

I visited the old Hemlock lake, which is now a river, as it should have always been allowed to be.

Oh the memories of these places live strong and well in my mind. I am glad the dam was taken down, I always love to see, hear and feel the river flow freely, without interference from man made obstacles.

Although I am sad to miss another reunion, I am happy that the day brought me to this place once again, this place of healing.

New beginnings are on the horizon, every time we wake from the sleeping dream into the waking one, we have the power to create beauty and health and wealth, or stand by while those others destroy everything we love that is good and pure and much needed by all life.

There is the question, “What can I do?” Well, I would not be telling the truth if I said this or that, for I do not have it figured out, but I do have a voice and a brain and common sense, and so I will try to use these things to promote that which is good.

As you walk your journey, figuring out the best way you, too, can assist in the safety of beauty in the world, please share, for it would be a blessing to all of us who may learn, and help to magnify your good efforts … for together, we are better.

Precious Gifts

As I drove to work yesterday morning, I was given the most beautiful birthday present!!! The sun greeted me, and peeked from behind the clouds, showing here, then ducking away and then showing again. Hide and Seek!! I was amazed by this gorgeous sunrise and am excited to see what it brings THIS morning!!

Blessings to begin the new year, the new life. This reminds me of how much ALL life on this planet is loved, the sun keeps showing up for us, growing our foods, providing Vitamin D, giving us warmth, and so much more.

Let us not forget the precious gift we receive each and every day.

The Picasso Life

Published August 9, 2017 by tindertender

I begin my morning in gratefulness, knowing that joy, happiness, and peace are my future. I am going to spend the remainder of my days listening to the flow of fresh waters and the beautiful harmony of the birds and other life in the wilderness. Peace … will be.

I look at the wall and see the canvases I have painted, wondering if I should donate them to good will, and then I realized, “These are good, and usable canvases. These can be recreated into new art which shows the current reality … the shift, from there, to here.”

Picasso LIfe
Such is our life. In our own hands, in conjunction with that divinity within, loving us every step of the way on this journey.

My life … your life … is a Divine work of art. As we began, we were amateurs, fumbling away. Our art depended on the start we received from our elders. Some of us did not get the nourishment we needed in order to produce a Picasso life. BUT ~ these experiences, when embraced over time, wounds healed through careful consideration … all of that, can be used to create the MOST beautiful art in, and around our lives, than perhaps we dared dream of.

This capacity is in all, seemingly dormant, yet brewing just the same.

Pain, anger, regret and remorse ~ love, joy, tears and happiness on all levels … these things are your personal master piece, none will ever compare, nor should they.

Build this beautiful life. This is your day, your week, your year, your life.

The beauty which you have power to create is within you. All you need do is claim it, nurture it, and watch it grow with every ounce of effort and attention you give it.
