to witness and embrace

to the 2 deer that stood in the middle of road and the red fox that crossed it a little further on, to the lilacs still blooming, to the rolling green grasses of western new york state, to the summer-tinged breeze and the tangerine ball of fire that hung on the edge of the hills, i thank you, one and all.

my heart thanks you. my soul thanks you. collectively, you have done nothing short of restoring my understanding of what i love best; to witness and embrace the beauty of the natural world.

and so today, i can return to the projects that stir me, and work them just for me. i can smile as i drip in the sudden heat. i can breathe to the floor of my gut. i can remember the gestures of love.


  1. oh! this is wonderful and full of life & love & a heart full of true gratitude. i began to smile 3 words in.


  2. I am going to sound like an utterly insane person with this comment. But, I love you. I am going through a hard time, and it inspires me to know that there are people like you out there to remind me to live in the moment, to see the raw, natural beauty in everything, to appreciate every smile, every feeling, every glimmer of hope, and, most importantly, to keep chasing that soul-light. Thank you :)

  3. I just love these lilac flowers, they are so beautiful. I will search on my computer and i will send you somne pictures with white lilac, gorgeus.

  4. yes. isn't it just amazing what a little sun and outdoor time can do?
    p.s. I saw that tangerine sun, it was amazing.


I always appreciate the time you take to comment on my blog. Thank you for stopping by. Peace from my heart to yours. xo, Graciel
