under the willows

today i sit under the willows branches & bask in the loveliness of the river's supple bend, the nature that has nurtured & promoted the wisdom & wonder of men all the ages over!

~everyone has a story{that matters so!!!}

"O would that i could describe these conceptions,
could impress upon the paper all that is living so full & warm within me,
that it might be the mirror of my soul,
as my soul is the mirror of the infinite God!"

~J.W.von Goethe

.. .mother nature! ~

".. .Blessed of the Lord be his land,
for the precious things of heaven,
for the dew,
& for the deep that coucheth beneath,
And for the precious fruits set forth by the sun,
and for the precious things put forth by the moon,
And for the chief things of the ancient mountains,
And for the precious things of the rolling hills,
And for the precious things of the earth and fulness thereof,
and for the goodwill of him that dwelt in the bush.. ."

Deuteronomy 33:13-16

~ Long days{filled with smiles}!

to stroll & glean beauty.. .
with smiles,
though the days are long!

the power of creation{of which we gratefully partake!}

   " He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing."
Job 26:7

spring storms & feeding kookaburras have kept us busy today :)

billowing politely .. .

*{a to do list:
paint by the ocean
listen to the waves
observe the sunlight, & the rippling shadows it creates
collect embroidered cushions
colour my hair
dress sensibly
live beautifully}
*& a quote.. .
"to affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts" Thoreau 

.. . i cherish *these!!!
