Come meander with me on the pathless path of the Heart
in these anecdotal,
sometimes inspiring, sometimes personal meanderings of the Heart's opening in the every-day-ness of life...

Nature's Window

Golden Silence

whispering in the wind

the song of living death...

A beauteous leaving...

Die into Life again and again...

  1. what fabulous photos! In your part of the world you get such amazing colour changes in the trees. Where we are, because there is less difference in the temperatures between summer and winter, we tend to miss the spectacular drama of fall.

  2. Genju ~ Yes, Nature is truly Wow :)

    Have been really taking in your posts this week - absorbing your words - "...willingness to allow ourselves to be forged into something new, to be open to what emerges." "...meeting every aspect of life with deep respect." Beautiful. Not unlike the "dying process" of the Fall leaves - a beauteous leaving :) C

  3. ZDS ~ Our colors *have* been dramatic this year! Very brilliant. We mostly get the yellows, except for a few reds and oranges here and there from those who have planted those particular kinds of trees or bushes in their yards. Glad to see you back blogging again :) C

  4. Yummy photos, Christine!
    "The song of living death"...love it!

  5. Hi, Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous fall colors and beautiful words. :)

  6. Maria ~ Yeah, experiencing Fall this year I realized that it was just the leaves that were dying, not the trees themselves. And that each year the "tree" dies a living death into Life again... amazing.

  7. Hello Diane! And thank you for stopping by and leaving your note :)

  8. Ohhhhh I love it when everyone is here...walking among the trees. It doesn't get any more beautiful. I've been enjoying everyone's amazing posts. Stunningly beautiful...pulling away the edges. Thank you to each of you for revealing such beauty...the words and images are amazing and so filled with the Heart of 'what is'.
