As the weather has been rather cold, for Charlotte, I went to the park this morning to catch what could possibly be my last glimpse of ice this winter. We never know. As I stood on the edge of the lake, I heard the ice cracking, popping, loosening its weak grip on the edge. The temperature was a balmy 27, heading for a high 50. Back to normal.

A few years ago, I started meditating. I kept it up for a while, but then it got lost somewhere in the mix. This morning I really felt the desire to sit quietly and simply breathe. So I did. I sat for 10 minutes, on the floor, gazing out my back window, looking at my rock garden. All sorts of gratitude bubbled up – gratitude that I could actually sit in a warm house with plenty of food in the…

I was quite entertained following this discussion on Chris’s blog, in particular, the discussion between Ray and Chris about pre-visualization and art. On one side, you have Ray K. saying that in order for it be art, essentially, it needed to be pre-visualized, with Chris countering with exploration-as-inspiration.

A boy was walking along, found a shiny penny, picked it up, showed to his father and proudly exclaimed it to be his lucky penny. His father replied: In a universe in which past, present, and future came into existence all at once, complete from beginning to end, with…

It’s been raining or a couple of days now, and since it didn’t appear as if it the rain was going to stop anytime soon, I decided to become one with the rain. I donned a raincoat, put on my Neos overshoes, and headed for the stream. When I got there, it was just about as I expected. The normally placed, just above a trickle stream was quite energetic and there were several new ‘tributaries’ that had formed as the…

Though, technically, it’s not yet winter for another week or so, mostly all of the trees have shed their leaves and it’s sure giving a great impression of winter. Yesterday, I went to the lake. At this time of year it’s pretty frequent to see fog rolling across the water as the sun rapidly warms the air. Also, you get to view scenes that wouldn’t be visible at other times, such as the one above. Normally, the light is not…
