Just reminding myself . . .

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

to hold good thoughts on this gray winter day, and to remember what beautiful experiences the world offers if we slow down:

to wander down unknown paths

and find places where fairies might live

or fairy tale castles

or wander familiar trails near home

and discover the creatures that live in the woods there

to collect beach glass on the shore

and watch shore birds while hearing the ocean sing

to see earth's beauty from far above

and close enough to touch

to stand on top of the world

and watch the sun's rays dance across the mountains

and enjoy every season on this earth --
springtime with its wind and promise of warmth

and summer when flowers grace the earth

autumn with its riot of colors

and winter's serenity

I hope blessings abound for you this weekend. Have a peaceful one, my friends.

The Boss

No particular post today -- I love Bruce Springsteen and this song.

New Year - New Hope - New Joy

New snow is so beautiful. It frosts the air and softens the sharp edges, of things and people and places. The world hushes, watches, waits, and hears only the quietness of snowfall.

Christmas 2010 brought "firsts" for me -- my first Christmas with my precious granddaughter, who looks like a little snowbaby here and my first ever White Christmas.
The snow was gone before New Year's Day. But I felt blessed to have experienced it. I don't make New Year's Resolutions, but I hope the peace and happiness I felt this holiday season abides with me throughout the year to come. I wish the same for you. From everyone at Slipper Moon, peace to you, my friends, in 2011 and always.
