TRAVEL: On the way to the Pedernales River

the river finally
they're called Cowpen Daisies!  
and they were everywhere as we got closer to the pedernales river!
a~buzz with bees and a~flutter with monarchs - 
i stuck my nose and my all right in -
into their intoxicating smell and mesmerizing yellow aura!  
it was heavenly!!! 
 these daisies grow from april - october,
so we were fortune to enjoy their beauty still this late in autumn.

NATURE: Retreat

October,,, I wanted to do less, close to nothing,,, like a Sabbatical of sorts,,,but
I've done quite a bit.  I mean I work full-time and often feel like I 'art' full time.

It's mid-month and I'm finally doing a little less, and I feel I'm receiving more,,,
I'm easing into "resting by still waters" and it's very balancing to my spirit, soul and body. 
Oh, something's always a little off,,, chaos is part of life, is in nature,,, 
but there are calms and retreats. 

A small fall break is coming up and I'm excited to go on a road trip with my honey.
Enjoy the peace of autumn, dear friends.

NARURE: Climb a mountain, build a cairn and climb a cairn....

i built a cairn on the bug's pinnacle
then the bug climbed on top of the cairn
it was very amusing

 we saw the most unusual spider
looked like a piece of candy
poisonous though?

 i just noticed today that my hiking stick
has natural designs in it
a rattlesnake perhaps 
or two?

we had a great hike in the wildlife refuge.

Wish you a calm week ahead!

NATURE: Wrapping up September...

 somehow i've reconciled the season (summer) gone...
oh, it's still warm and sunny here - but mentally i'm heading forward,
and the wind can drive the chaff from my soul...
finishing the circle around prairie hill 
i saw deer on the western horizon, and they saw me
they disappeared where the sun set
on the last day of September.
