oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

What is Essential

I took this picture at my cousin's wedding, which was the same day that Hurricane Bill came through. What I see is the loveliest sunset I've ever witnessed. What I think is there are no words. Such visions of natural beauty transport me beyond thought and into a realm of simply being, of oneness with the universe, a place where I see things with my heart and feel things I haven't the words to convey.

It is only with the heart

that one can see rightly;

what is essential

is invisible to the eye.

Exploring

Louis and I went out to walk in the leaves this week, and just see what we could see. What I see is a lot: crunchy brown leaves carpet the ground, a fallen branch creates a little arch for Louis to walk under, and the sky...what a beautiful sight to end the day with. What I think is that I should be more like Louis and explore as much of the world around me as I'm able to.

I used to dream about escaping

my ordinary life,

but my life was never ordinary.

I had simply failed to notice

how extraordinary it was.

This is a view from my front door. What I see is magnificent color, with clouds that look as though they were painted on the sky. What I think of is an evening after the storm, comfortable solitude, quiet, and an awe at what wonders there can be.

Heaven

and the heaven of heavens

belong to the LORD your God,

the earth

with all that is in it.
