Well on this snowy end of February day, I wanted to make sure I took some pictures of the surroundings before the snow would start melting. I am not a winter lover but some days it tugs at my heart at Mother's Nature awe-inspiring beauty.. The picture to the left was one of those days a couple of years ago, today we are just minus the beautiful blue sky...
Since this picture was taken, like life a few things are missing. For instance, the beautiful red maple tree here i the right foreground, had to be taken down last fall as it was just to big and close to the house and starting to cause some structural damage to the deck..so in my mind's eye I still see it but in reality it feels like there is a hole in the sky...my mind still needs to adjust... Just like losing my sweet mami this past May 2012 is making my mind still adjust... she is there but not there...a missing piece in my daily view but always in my mind's eye..
So this morning when I wanted to go out and take a picture of my beautiful backyard...this is what I was astonished by and tried to wrap my mind around...my charming little gazebo had succumbed to the weight of the beautiful snow. Once again showing the beauty and power of Mother Nature. We are all but a spec here on earth as many areas of the continent have experienced. I learned many many years ago not be attached to "things"..a valuable lesson for sure.. So I say goodbye charming gazebo that brought beauty and focus as I drank a cup of tea and contemplated life out my window gazing at the picturesque view.
With spring around the corner, I await what is to be...a planting season without my mother's guidance (however, she is the angel in my garden)...a new possibility to see what can fill my meditation viewpoint. Hopes and reams are endless and the memories of what we once had are forever etched in my mind and heart...
keep dreaming as one day your dreams will come true,
