Embracing Change

 This is one of the trees we always took pictures with. One of our favorite large trees.
We saw so many changes here from storms.
Things change.

It felt like the woods were so different because of so many downed trees.
We even decided to change our route and went down a path we had never taken before.
It was a beautiful day to connect - be with some quiet time - and ponder

Slowing down...

Each day would be wonderful if we would take a moment to stop and notice.
Notice the flowers that surround us, the birds with their magnificent song.
Disconnect. Then Reconnect.. with life around you.
Put your techie toys away for a bit and pick up your head.
We bow to our new technologies, and at what expense.
Crossing the street, driving the car.. our heads bowed. 
Lift your eye up towards that person coming towards you and smile at them.
Greet them with your eyes.

Dream State

Watching from above

I had a strange dream last night and thinking it was just from all the elements of the day swirling together.
I am walking into church (St. Gregory's). Others are walking in with me. Church is full. I walk over to the right and sit in one of the smaller pews towards the back.
As I am walking there, the priest stops the mass, and calls to me by name and asks if I will read.
I don't really want to I say.
He asks again.
I say, "my nose is all stuffy".
He comes down from the pulpit and walks over to me carrying a large, round, multi-tiered candy type dish.
It is sectioned off, each section holding tiles of various sizes and shapes.
There is a covering for it.
He places it down next to me and tells me all I have to do is read the back of the tile from one section. They are blue squares.
He tells me he wants people to get to know me.
As he puts it down, I am now not so sure which ones he meant and begin to take them out of their "sections" and read the back.. each having one word typed on them. Some are words of nature.. frog.. others not so "clear".. Ab, na.. 
As I pull off tile after tile, I begin to make a mess, piling and mixing up these tiles.
I do not read and eventually apologize for making a mess. The tiles are spread out taking up space on the pews around me. Two men standing cannot sit. I try to clean it up.
I am now in a room, the priest's room, looking through a telescope that is set up to look at a stone building. It is round, all stone with a door and thinking it is an ancient building people go to visit, and he must check out who goes there.
