Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..
(Quietly sharing thoughts while exploring the world and the universe (no nominations please)….
“I do not do or say something to be proud of myself, I just do or say something because it needed to be done or said…” Larry Woller 5-6-2018
“I have an open mind about reading and therefore try not to restrict myself with the subject matter .. Life is complicated and not contained to a few ideologies, therefore in order to better understand the universe, I need to explore all of it, not just the parts I like..…”
“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.” Robert Fulghum
Have the day finished, sitting here with a spot of tea and thought I would pop in and leave a few thoughts… there may be some storms later as at present have a hot, humid, unstable air mass… and speaking of which, are you ready for another science lesson.. 🙂 if you remember in history’s past blogs, I mentioned a red sky in the morning and the association to thunderstorms.. well, imagine if you will, you woke up to the red skies with plans to go on a picnic with family… as the day progresses you begin to see clouds like this…
And another cloud like this one…
And like this one…
The clouds appear becoming vertical, like a basic chimney.. with growing up on the farm (and not having weather reports daily) and a present observer for the weather service, we observe such things… what the clouds are doing is called “towering”… it indicates that there is a unstable airmass/atmosphere present and the increased chance of storms, possibly strong to severe… so, if you are going on that picnic, you might want to have a back up plan ready…. You don’t need a weather person to tell you Mother Nature is planning something… 🙂
So much for the weather, back to the gardens for a bit… thought I would post a photo of the raspberries, a difference a week makes… 🙂
Not only does the berries provide food for the outdoor creatures, but provide protection for the birdbath that is on the other side under the trellis… also the day lily (confidence/passion) is in full bloom with the warm, rainy weather….
And speaking of lilies, the water lily (enlightenment/passion) is near bloom in the water gardens..
The small outdoor creatures and insects use the large leaves to get on to get a drink of water… with a garden of roses and lilies, reminds me of a poem actually… 🙂
The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheet a threat’ning horn:
While the Lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a thread stain her beauty bright.
And speaking of love and passion, I wrote a poem in history’s past to share;
And I Love You So…
And I love you so
With every second of time,
More than words can say
In this little ole rhyme.
A love that grows stronger
With every beat of the heart!
Two hearts that beat as one
Inseparable… never to part!!
With every breath, every heartbeat
A true love spoken in every word we say,
A right and wonderful love, to treasure
Even after the four winds all blow away.
This rhyme is without end, my darling
Because so is OUR love, to last forever,
And I love YOU So, dear one
Beyond the 12th of Never!…

I know there are plenty of conflicts and negative, dark subjects in this world that one will have to deal with from time to time but one cannot concentrate solely on negative thoughts because; “When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” Alexander Graham Bell
And if one continues to look for negative thoughts, soon that is all one will know and; “As you think, so shall you be.” Wayne W. Dyer..
Well, I had better close now, perhaps open the Kindle (the lady vampire did fall in love by the way… 🙂 ) and stir up the imagination a bit before venturing on down the path least traveled… but I shall return one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…
“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson), but only if you want to… 🙂
