Believe in...


I believe in kindness. Also in mischief. 
Also in singing, especially when singing is not necessarily prescribed.

A reminder of the beauty around us, despite all the ongoing turmoil.  
All of the above photos, which were taken at my favorite gardens, come from my photo archives.

Fully Present

Be fully present.  Feel your heart. 
And engage in the next moment without an agenda.
~ Pema Chodron

Contentment

Smack in the middle of being uncomfortable, confused, restless, 
I could accept this groundlessness, this not knowing, as a new place, as my own country.
~ Natalie Goldberg, The Great Spring: Writing, Zen, and This Zigzag Life



San Diego Botanical Garden


It is that time of year again.  I have been cleaning out files and photos, making some space on my computer.  I will be sharing some of my favorite keepers from visits to garden haunts, including the Huntington Garden, San Diego Botanical Garden and Arlington Garden. Stay tuned!  For those of you on Facebook, these will be shown in my album titled Nature.
