Saturday Morning

It is in the poetry of the simple things, in the gestures, the light and the bristling new day outside my windowsill. I see it all, with commotion, one that nature so candidly can display down this avenue that is life. The drenched pastures, the fleur d’orange inundating the kitchen parlor or the crackling sound of haulm wrapped up, headed to the farm down the driveway. It might seem like an ordinary thing, but in a frenzied life that we live in, this is a bit of bliss that needs nothing but appreciation for the candor it brings. This is my world. A world of calm and ease, to inspire and acquire the taste of the land and smallest details of living. Be it a line from a book, a nostalgic emotion, or a walk through he woods in Portugal.

  7. This made me think of you, David:
    “…to inspire and acquire the taste of the land and smallest details of living. Be it a line from a book, a nostalgic emotion, or a walk through the woods…”
    because that is what you do. And share with us.

  9. Back to bed. Let go of thinking mind and focus on the breath. Inhale peace. Exhale release.
    You are so much more than your thoughts David. ( no matter how enthralling they are)
    Thinking is just a playground, a stimulant and creator of stories for us to hang on to.
    Take a break and relax. Find balance and reset in your middle ground 💛
