Natural Beauty Experienced
Does your mind sound like an echo chamber? Are there so many thoughts of this and that bouncing around looking for some choices. We value freedom to make choices and don't even recognize that this freedom limits the potential for direct experience. Here are some flowers for your enjoyment. Natural beauty supports spacious thought without the filter of freedom choice. Let that smile come across your face and feel the fresh breeze coming off the ocean, meandering through the marsh, and up over the hill in the bright morning sun. Those other decisions and distractions can wait for you to breath deeply the gay colors of the kingdom of flowers.
In memory of Ruth, the gold miner's daughter on her burial day.
