Time to Breathe and Look

This past week has been a busy one, with visits to friends and family; nights out with girlfriends; three picnics; a trip to a nearby waterpark; walks in the woods…all very lovely, but by the weekend I found my brain felt a bit fuzzy! This week looks like being another packed one, but I am going to try my very best to make more time for this:

Although, looking at my posture, I think I may need to sit forward a bit ;-). Any posture tips from meditation gurus would be most appreciated!

And more time for slow nature rambles, especially when there’s a chance of spotting something as awesome as this lizard:


I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a native lizard before. I think it’s a female common lizard. She caught my eye as she ran across the path, and then kept very, very still as Gman took her photo. Just wonderful.

    It sounds like you are making the very most of the end of summer! I don’t know how it ever happened, but I really like lizards! Great photo by Gman.

    What a little haven of peace in all the business πŸ™‚

  3. The visitation of such beings is such a wonderful gift!!

  4. When you know your innate self, half the battle of life is won. You are more near to your Creator – immersed in Him only.

I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
