So many things could be floating around here, maybe on journeys from here to there. A base for going.
And it's blue, a coolness and relief from hell on earth which seems to have arrived almost everywhere. In so many forms.
Still the goldfinches sing. Here perched on the blooming mullein which rose up voluntarily in the garden. And there are way too many cucumbers to eat. I will share with neighbors.
And now, here comes the heat. Unplug.
a few new crumbs in the shop today...
here we have Lesser Goldfinches … tiny beyond belief, with glossy jet black wings … beautiful creatures
Yes, so tiny, they land on tall flowers and the stems hardly bend. .
Lovely to see the goldfinch on the mullein, and Soul-o getting a breeze on the fuzzy tummy.
soul-s body language sez it all!
we are all doing that dance for now.
Too many cucumbers? Make pickles! Dill, sweet, bread and butter slices.
believe it or not, I don’t care for pickles much.
.. ” a base for going ” ……. brilliant thinking …….. thank you for reminding me of the other worlds !
The base has always been a big concept for me. It has been a long time since I reconsidered what it has become.
i’m learning the Goldfinch Meditation. many repetitions.
they sort of whistle, is that part of it?
Soft white belly. Trying to cool his center.
wow he is a hot coal these days
Solo-o is one lucky kitty. So many unloved, unwanted kitties in this world.
he was once one…
You should realize you have the mind and heart of a poet; you think in poetic phrases, you work in poetic realms…even denying this is a poetic stance. You can’t escape it. I love your poetic nature. It captivates me, enthralls me, I feel a spiritual kinship with you. It inspires me to delve into my poetic nature and work there long hours in complete solitude and peace.
there seems poetry in process, maybe it is just that I am never finished, ha!
Beautiful soothing, much needed sharing. Thank you.
Mullein. One of my favorite herbs. Perhaps you can make some fragrant candles from the flower stalks! Gardens and Nature, my saving grace every day.
they are everywhere here, this year some weird insect attack ruined most of the blooms along the forest edge.
I like soul o’s relaxed attitude 😁
I have to poke him to see if he is alive.
I love seeing goldfinches at our feeder.
they are just everywhere here. They love feeding on the spent flower heads…
Thank you Jude!
Was so low yesterday feeling overwhelmed by “hell on earth in so many forms”.
Your reminder that beauty, rest & kindness are a relief, a place to start from.
Creation is a beautiful thing for a creative!
what can you do but just go. maybe slower. there is more to see that way anyway.
So many struggles these days… it is a relief to have something creative to divert ones attention.
It’s going to be a HOT one today… but currently there is a nice breeze. I’ll take it!
I plan on doing a lot of sitting AND maybe look at some of your videos! I do enjoy that.
looks like hot will be with us for a good while. have to say, I am wilting.
I feel like Soul-O! Love the blues.
Soul-o has the right idea
I’m glad the goldfinch still sings, the mullien still sprouts and blooms.
Singing goldfinch. Resting cat. Ahhhhhh, yes. Good day.
