Nature

Inspiration

Last September we went hiking at Peter’s Kill in Minewaska State Park ( NY) and I felt in love with Nature’s esthetic and ingenious way against erosion. Trees were wrapping their roots around massive rocks allowing smaller plants to spread in between and hold the dirt.

A mixture of moss and pebbles of all sizes were creating a mosaic of whimsical patterns .

I came back that day wishing I could bring the mountain and all the Faeries home with me.

For about nine and a half month I kept sketching the front of our home constantly referring to the hiking memory.

We found a very talented landscaper and stone mason who captured my wish in a blink and made a dream come true.(www.rocmason.com)

Now all we have to do is add moss and some plants.

A simple reflection

Since my last post it took a lot of will power and discipline to get through my work.

The day I replaced the rotten plate in my wall I was alone , with no one to ask for HELP and rain was approaching.

My hands were tired and the stress to close up the wall was high. I thought of what a loving community means in someone’s life . Nourishment is not just food but also helping each other , caring for each other. Except for my immediate family I have none of that in the village I live in.

The Termite medicine was showing me in reverse their wisdom.

Being a seed trusted to a foreign land I made friends with  Nature and its wild creatures but not with my fellow humans. A lot to ponder here.

 

I find it so interesting how my home nudges me to expand and evolve my heart and consciousness through  the practical experiences at hand.

My days are pretty much chop wood, carry water and send prayers into the wind.

My Garden is enfolding into its magic and if I could have more day light in a day to work , I would.

Are you surrounded by a loving , supporting community?

In the lack of, I made my version of the prayer flags to remind me support and love is everywhere in the Universe and the same elements scattered around me are within me .

Hence I am one with All .
