“Thanksgiving Gratitude”

I am grateful for the opportunity to have experienced this majestic, mysterious and unique landscape called “Mystery Valley” more than once.  Each time it is both peaceful and a special blessing to stand on and behold this land.  With “Thanksgiving” this week, I am also grateful for the majestic and mysterious experience that we call our life journey.  Each day we have the unique opportunity to navigate and explore our own emotions and  ways to respond as we greet the challenge of all new experiences.  To all who read this blog, I wish you peace and special blessings as you stand firm and behold your sacred journey to be, to live, to experience joy.  Happy Thanksgiving, 2017!

we must carry it with us or we find it not.”  ~~ Ralph Waldo Emmerson

“Canyon X”

Slot Canyons in Paige, Arizona…

“… a place where I still could get lost;

a world in which solitude seemed magical, not lonely;

a labyrinth so huge and complex 

that it makes a mockery of my ambitions to dent it.”  ~~ D. Roberts 

 

“Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth,

are never alone or weary of life.”  ~~ Rachel Carson
