“I’m always happy when I’m surrounded by water, I think I’m a Mermaid or I was a mermaid.
“The ocean makes me feel really small and it makes me put my whole life into perspective… it humbles you and makes you feel almost like you’ve been baptized. I feel born again when I get out of the ocean.” ~Beyoncé Knowles~
Well….Here it is, the last day, the end of June’s Challenge. I’ve participated in a few of these and have come to appreciate them giving me the little extra push to get outside…to breathe in the fresh air and “get lost’ in nature. I will continue to “Rewild” my life…..I will continue to find ways to unleash my wildness…to embrace my inner, untamed spirit.
“Now I know the wild feminine in me and I love her too much to let her go, for anyone. She is the wave in the ocean, she is the entire ocean.” ~Kate Joyner~
“You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.” ~ Pema Chödrön~
Had a wonderful visit with my oldest daughter this weekend…8 months is a long time not seeing my children and grandchildren. My oldes granddaughter is staying with me for 2 weeks and I’m hoping I can interest her in sharing at least some of my Soul Strolls…..this weekend gave us a mixed bag of weather…rained and clouds….
Some beautiful evening color…..
“The sky grew darker, painted blue on blue, one stroke at a time, into deeper and deeper shades of night.” ~Haruki Murakami~
And of course the beautiful colors of this mornings sunrise….my favorite time of day…and to be able to share it with my daughter…Priceless!
“Sunrise looks spectacular in the nature; sunrise looks spectacular in the photos; sunrise looks spectacular in our dreams; sunrise looks spectacular in the paintings, because it really is spectacular!” ~Mehmet Murat ildan~
If You Build It They Will Come…….
Sharing some beach creations made over the past few years……..due to an injury my walking is down to nill the next few days….a bit bummed as I’m so close to the end of the challenge,,,,but gotta listen to the body!
“In summer the empire of insects spreads.” ~ Adam Zagajewski~
With a few exceptions ( dragonflies, butterflies and ladybugs) I’m not into insects or bugs….but when they do present themselves while participating in a nature challenge, one does need to overlook their dislike and see them through different eyes…..
Now the turtle and the toad…..no fear…..also no witty quotes could I find! 🐢🐸
“The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire.” ~Sharon Ralls Lemon~
Not everyone can claim they live where the ‘wild ponies’ live and play…..
I never know who I’m going to run into when I’m riding my bike……
There is nothing like seeing the ponies come down the beach out of the morning mist behind the Saltwater Cowboys…..
Seeing them swim across the channel was fulfilling a childhood dream……
“Horses lend us the wings we lack.” ~Unknown~
