Stream Of Consciousness From Planet Earth

Today I am part of the earth. Ya, ya, I know...where do I spend the rest of my time? Ha ha you are all so clever. No I mean it is just one of those absolutely glorious days that makes you happy to be alive. So connected we are to the earth. (When did Yoda get here?) It is 75 degrees, clear blue skies and just a slight breeze to make one smile. Just lovely. I went into the yard to hang the laundry out to dry and I just marveled at the sounds, scents and feelings of the end of summer. I can tell it is drawing to a close. Autumn is in the air. That is ok. I love the fall. Will miss the laziness and sometimes craziness of summer break, but the harvest and abundance of the fall is beautiful. I know what is around the corner. Cold. Oh, and dark. Dark and Cold. This is the north country. But there is something deeply satisfying about the change of season. I hung the laundry and relished the touch of the cool, damp clothes against my warm skin. The cat winding in between my feet meowing for attention. I picked a giant handful of blackberries, bursting with juice and flavor, still warm from the sun. I gathered the eggs, thanked the chickens, Yolko and Hendrix, for their part in sustaining my family and left them with a good joke. Only thing better than a chiken's sense of hearing is their sense of humor. Old chicken joke. I am just feeling glad today. Grateful to be part of the creation, the planet, the birds and bees and even the laundry. I have purpose and direction and stewardship. Abundance and gratitude.
Thanks for listening...
Quote of the Day: "Let the mountains shout for joy, and all ye valleys cry aloud; and all ye seas and dry lands tell the wonders of your Eternal King! And ye rivers, and brooks, and rills, flow down with gladness. Let the woods and all the trees of the field praise the Lord; and ye solid rocks weep for joy! And let the sun, moon, and the morning stars sing together, and let all the sons of God shout for joy! And let the eternal creations declare his name forever and ever! And again I say, how glorious is the voice we hear from heaven, proclaiming in our ears, glory, and salvation, and honor, and immortality and eternal life; kingdoms, principalities, and powers!"


  1. What a great post. I love those part of nature days. I am so excited for Fall. To me, it is the best time of year. So much excitement.

  2. What a beautiful post!! And how wonderful to have cooler weather. I was just outside cursing the heat. I am so sick of being hot. I guess I should be grateful though. In the winter we will have days just as you described in your post. Now that is something nice to look forward to!
