Elder’s Meditation 9-11-19

Published September 11, 2019 by tindertender

“Listen to all the teachers in the woods. Watch the trees, the animals, and all living things – you’ll learn more from them than from books.”

— Joe Coyhis, STOCKBRIDGE-MUNSEE

Nature is a living example of how communities live in harmony. If you go into the forest or mountain and sit still and watch, ask yourself, what lessons are being taught? Then watch how the animals conduct themselves. The trees could represent diversity. The flowers could represent people. Notice how everything in nature assists one another. See how balance works. See how conflict is handled. Can you see acts of forgiveness? Can you spot respect? Nature is full of wisdom if we will only consider her to be our teacher.

My Creator, today let me learn from nature.

Joy Ridin’ On A Week Night

Published August 15, 2019 by tindertender

Work was slow yesterday afternoon so I decided to take a little time for me.

I traveled to Timberline Lodge where, to my sweet surprise, a duet was singing music, and it was beautiful. Here are some pics I took on my way up the mountain.

My dinner was a delicious roasted veggie sandwich on a ciabatta bun with a robust tomato soup. Yum. Huckleberries are one of my favorites, which is why I also bought a piece of cobbler to go.

Check out what I saw at the top of Mt Hood last night. Crazy thing, as I stood there for 10 minutes gawking, no one else seemed to see it … weird.

I was able to see all the way the Bend, what I know is a 4 hour drive from where I live. Incredible to see it from this vantage point, to think of all the people between here and there. Thinking of the love shared, and also the cruelty happening just under the trees.

It really is amazing to see the world from up here. It makes me think of what “the man on the mountain” must see when he looks out upon us.

I love mountain flower bushes.

There was a symbol on the chimney I’m not sure of. Perhaps someone just likes to think of high noon a lot?

A beautiful theater was there. I stood at the front of it to capture photo and imagined what it might be like to speak from that position. Really cool stuff! I thought I had a pic of the entire seating, but looks like I only got the right side. There are three sections, tierd like this.

The trees really take a beating up this high from the winds.

But oh my word … being up here, one feels a little closer to heaven.

I stopped by a waterfall on my way back. It was so fresh smelling, and the sounds …. delish.

Have a great day friends. May the one who loves you shower you with blessing, even if that someone is you.

Get Stuck, Shake It Off, and Move On Down The Road

Published July 28, 2019 by tindertender

My idea was to get out of the house early in the day, go for a drive, maybe find some music somewhere.

I got hung up on the darn google search and social media. At 2pm my roommate asked if I was still going out. Yes! I replied.

I made my way toward the mountain. I was just that way on Friday, so I cut over and went toward the clackamas river, and on up the hill toward the ranger station. As I crested the hill before descending and entering the rivers area, I snapped a view of the rolling hill tops.

Beautiful place, but the fire from several years ago left it’s ugly scar across much of the land.

I stopped along the river to catch a sight and took a short video and a few pics.

The stone stairs were pretty cool, and steep!

I turned around and headed back to town because a classical string band was going to be playing a free concert in the park! It was really a relaxing and peaceful experience.

I took a few video clips and merged them so you can have an idea of the sounds.

Here it is, evening. I am tempted to retire early and see what dreams may come.

May the coming days bring you abundant blessing. 🙏🏼❤️

It was so quiet at the Park this morning! Walking along I noticed the bark of one tree species in particular … it was so smooth … compared to most trees of this region!!

And the flowers, oh my …

I spent the rest of the day with co-workers at the company picnic. I won a prize in the raffle … a one night stay in a fabulous Tree House!! While this one is not the exact place I’ll stay, I am very happy to have this opportunity.

Woman ~ You Are Invited

 Wild Soul Woman
“When we consider how embedded we are in the Earth,
how we are literally made of the same stuff
as rivers, rocks and roots,
we can see how separating from this beautiful, fecund
world might be damaging to our psyches.
Have you ever suffered a terrible accident, betrayal or loss?
Then you know you can be left depleted, depressed,
perhaps even cast adrift…
As if you aren’t quite whole.
In losing our intimate relationship with the Earth
we modern humans have suffered a particular trauma
that has caused our wild souls to split off.
How do we heal the wounded wild?
How do we reclaim our wild souls?
The answer lies within each one of us.”

~ Poem: Mary Reynolds Thompson

Walk In The Park

Published March 4, 2018 by tindertender

Took my pups to the park early this morning. Saw some pretty amazing scenery, and it wasn’t too populated. The cooler weather and time of day most likely had a lot to do with that. These two own my heart.

As we walked along I wore a smile that I had no intention of trying to hide. As far as I could tell there was no one to see it anyway. We stopped a few times just to listen for awhile and really take in the view.

The patterns of the rocks in the paths we took were interesting to me. Some were quite large and others just pebbles, yet they were embedded in the hard earth just the same. There was a lot of water flowing, my hope is that it will do more good than harm to the forests this year. Weather modification programs are out of control.

Here’s a short video I took while walking along with these two love bunnies. It’s the simple things …
