Almost Ripe

Everything that is made beautiful and fair and lovely is made for the eye of one who sees.

Genuine compassion must have both wisdom and loving kindness. That is to say, one must understand the nature of suffering from which we wish to free others (this is wisdom), and one must experience deep

Intimacy and empathy with other sentient beings (this is living kindness).

~ Dalai Lama (The Heart Sutra)

Sometimes solitude is on if the most beautiful things on earth.

Light

A near perfect weather day spend at South Jackson Elementary School building our observational skills.

We listened to trees and found treasures along the trail.

I sat in the woods before the kids came down and watching the dew evaporate as the sun warmed the earth.

When the first kids arrived

they came in so quiet that the birds

only hooked up and got quiet enough

to see what was going on.

Beautiful.
