Winter Haiku in Black & White by Bette A. Stevens

It has been a few years since I snowshoed, but it brings being outside during an Alberta winter to life. It does make for a perfect day.

Just a thought: Peace may live in many places, though the best being when it lives in our hearts. – George-B.

Just a thought: Peace may live in many places, though the best being when it lives in our hearts. – George-B..

This is a wonderful quote from George. Love from the heart is pure love. From the heart, we can give it without asking for anything in return. It is letting go in a passive way.

CAFE CLOSED

We find ourselves in those quiet, still moments. Paradoxically, we lose ourselves there, as well.

Take the First Step

Each step begins a new journey.

How wonderful

It is wonderful when we can begin to make the world a better place without any encouragement and that the actions are their own rewards.

Bright, shiny objects!

my cats

We don’t own a cat. We did once and she was special. I think Charles Bukowski gets it right that when we have a pet they are our teachers. I always tell people who cat really owned us. We have opportunities to learn from whatever appears in our world and space. When we stop and sense closely, deeply, it is a learning experience that sometimes only reveals itself much later.

I know. I know.
they are limited, have different
needs and
concerns.

but I watch and learn from them.
I like the little they know,
which is so
much.

they complain but never
worry,
they walk with a surprising dignity.
they sleep with a direct simplicity that
humans just can’t
understand.

their eyes are more
beautiful than our eyes.
and they can sleep 20 hours
a day
without
hesitation or
remorse.

when I am feeling
low
all I have to do is
watch my cats
and my
courage
returns.

I study these
creatures.

they are my
teachers.

A Secret Order

For chaos to exist, there must be order. The two exist not separately but with each other sharing the best of what each offers.
