Attentiveness is the
natural prayer of the soul.
Pay attention, there is
no time to rush.
These past few mornings have been spectacular. Chilly and sunny (too cold for the blackflies!) and gradually warming as I sip my tea and listen to the birds. I slowly get to remove my hat and coat and enjoy the peace.
As I went into the house, I got a whiff of my favorite wee spring flower. Lilies-of-the-Valley are starting to bloom! Reminds me of 2 Main.
I love walking under this tree...all the busy bees and the beautiful blooms, the sun peeking through. Thank you for putting it here, Janet.
New beer to love, lovely sunset with my ♥️, bike ride adventure with the boys, smelled a lilac, KSC open for our exploration.
I made myself a hideaway and I love it. Spilled some paint and decided to play around. So fun not to care.

I absolutely love old cemeteries. One of my favorite things, actually.
Walking with my friend who appreciates them, too. Marveling at the stones that have stood there for hundreds of years and the flowers that show up every one of those years.
Wee yellow flowers in a bed of moss. How adorable is that? 😍
I woke up this morning (early, which was nice) and didn’t feel so great (maybe one glass of Mother’s Day wine too many 😬).
But I got up and put on some uplifting citrus oils, got outside and everything got better.
I love seeing the moon in the morning.
The field smelled so good today.
No social distancing here! Life continues to unfurl.
On my way back the the house, I noticed this tree about to flower. So much beauty and hope in a bud.
I love that they took the time to create something for me. The two of them upstairs choosing the wool and the colors. One decides to have his gnome carry a sign, the other displays his message on his back. Still sweet at 12. ♥️
I heard a bobolink this morning and we spotted an oriole yesterday.
My hair looks pretty good this morning!
I was able to get some satisfying thoughts out of my head and on the page. Always grateful for that.
Ok, gotta shift it.
1. It IS melting and it IS pretty.
2. This will keep the black flies away! 😆
3. Chuckles from the other room.
4. Here comes the BLUE!
5. The house finch.

Notice the Trance
We all do it—switch to autopilot when life gets busy. We forget about what matters. We no longer see the mystery. We start to live small.
It's time to wake up to your life!
Come play with me!
Start to pay attention to the simple gifts in your life. Write them down!
