Quote of the Week #76

Are you anxious for November 8th? If so, you’re not alone! Everywhere I go, it is what people are talking about.

art-3It is easy to feel overwhelmed by all the negativity and fearful for the future… so I thought I would offer you a moment of peace and quiet and some beauty to feel inspired by.

It is fall! It is a glorious season! And every day there are great reasons to get outside and enjoy it before it turns to winter.

And so, today’s quote, by John Burroughs:

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.”

Where do you go to have your senses put in order? Or to feel soothed? Do you have a favorite spot? If so, I hope you make time to visit it soon. Happy day!

Do You See What I See?

1-It’s that time of year again–the time when I can’t seem to get anything else done because I just want to be outside, looking for spots of beauty to capture with my camera. Mornings are my favorite time of day –when the birds are singing and the sunshine is just beginning to wipe away the dew. Time disappears in those moments. Do you know what I mean? What activity do you do that makes time disappear?

Since you can’t come along with me into the fields, I thought I would share some of my recent photos. As you can see, there is no shortage of beauty! Which one is your favorite?

Enjoy! And have a wonderful Thursday!!
