Welcome...

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...

Meandering Nature's Sanctuaries...

Saturday my husband and I went on an “outing” and discovered a new place for me to meander…  We found this wonderful Eden about 20 mins from here.  It has gardens and ponds tucked away along nature paths with wetlands and waterfalls, and - well just about everything one could want in nature to meander in.  We left realizing we didn’t get to see the cascading waterfalls.  I intend to make this my new sanctuary  – a place to wander – to take photos – to sit and commune – to be in silence, yet not isolated – just being…  Here’s a first pass look at our meanderings in nature’s sanctuary…  There will be more… :)










The goose in the following video was snoozing as we walked up.  The other geese went into the water.  He woke up and suddenly realized he had been left behind.  It made for a rather comical moment.  Wait for me!

    1. Thanks Suki! :) Well, we tried to put the little video together late last night, trying to find royalty free music, and ended up with "Pop Goes The Weasel" - :) I am anxious to go back and explore, but this week we have temps in the 90's and yesterday 100, so hopefully next week :)

    1. Well it all depends on the bod, and the bod doesn't like to be out in 90-100 degree weather :) And, interestingly depends on whether Being wants to go walk or not. Today it is only in the 60's - Yahoo - but Being wanted to do 2 hours of much needed yard work... But it's just nice knowing that "refuge" is there :) Wasn't that goose funny!
