Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

via Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

David shared a wonderful poem by Mark Nepo. It reminds us life is not something to plan. Life is something we live. We exist in a state of flux and float in the breeze like a bird trusting the currents of the stream.

We took these pictures in Glacier National Park. It reminds me how nature just exists. There are no plan as such and no purpose than to be in a paricular moment. The waterfall does not care that we build roads and drive on them. It just flows.

  3. I understand the waterfall. These days, I just flow along with whatever comes my way and enjoy life more as a result.

  4. Love the photos and hope to visit Glacier in September. Can’t wait!

  5. Thanks for sharing Ivon. Your photos are so close to home, so close to my heart. Thank you.

    • And your post reminds me of:

      “A longing to wander tears my heart when I hear trees rustling in the wind at evening. If one listens to them silently for a long time, this longing reveals its kernel, its meaning. It is not so much a matter of escaping from one’s suffering, though it may seem to be so. It is a longing for home, for a memory of the mother, for new metaphors for life. It leads home. Every path leads homeward…

      – Hermann Hesse (Bäume. Betrachtungen und Gedichte)

    • You are welcome David. Even though I was not born in the mountains, I find peace in them.
