"My Secret Places" Series

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Rather sell these as a set, but let me know if you are interested in a single piece and let me know size so I can quote and give you details

Enchanting Landscapes...

I've caught this magical landscape and it's the enchantment of it that I'm so keen to capture. Of course lots of people will protest that it's quite unreal, but that's just too bad ~Claude Monet

drifting in and out like a beautiful dream for a few moments. How fortunate we were.

A favorite song and favorite quote too....came to mind when viewing this image

“Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true” ~LF Bauman

"Giant Swallowtail" took this photo on Sunday. This amazing and large butterfly (we looked up; "Giant Swallowtail") drifted in and out like a beautiful dream for a few moments. How fortunate we were. Dreams or lifes moments of beauty and happiness, are fleeting and momentary and often unexpected. So, even more reason to savor and enjoy.

Out & About at Night

“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”

Natures Celebration of Life (3)

Most people are on the world, not in it. - have no conscious sympathy or relationship to anything about them - undiffused, separate, and rigidly alone like marbles of polished stone, touching but separate. ~John Muir

Dragonflies (especially red ones) in Japan were considered lucky; "kachi-mushi" (victory insects) bringing good luck. Samurai armor and family crests and other items were often embellished with a lucky dragonfly design.

Natures Celebration of Life (2)

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.”~Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa's quote is reaffirmed when we go out into nature. You cannot get close to, or interrelate with her wild creatures without quiet. You cannot fully appreciate and feel the gentle winds or the cooling rains without quiet. You cannot smell the full fragrance and bouquet of the flower without quiet. We need to use all of our senses including hearing, to truly be aware of ourselves, our surroundings and to be closer to nature and God.

Natures Celebration of Life

Hold fast to your dreams, for without them life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.”~Langston Hughes

"Dancing at Dawn"

This hummingbird seems to be emulating the bee balm flower in this photo I took on sunday...a fascinating fact as you observe nature, is that different creatures, botanical species,the clouds, oceans and mountains seemingly mimmick each other through shape, color, patterns etc. Not necessarily for survival reasons either....

“You cannot see the mountain near” ~RW Emerson

"Daylily zen dreams"
