“I would rather be what God chose to make me

than the most glorious creature that I could think of;

for to have been thought about, born in God’s thought, and then made by God,

is the dearest, grandest and most precious thing in all thinking.”

~ George MacDonald

lonely mushroom

You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you.

You have to go to them sometimes.

tree climber

How does one climb a towering tree?  – one small inch at a time.

Mushroom Madness is here!

I love to get down on the forest floor and hunt for these fun – gi in their habitat.  Most are quite tiny – less than 5 cm tall.

Join me for a new mushroom image every day for the next 8 days.

I hope you’ll discover how endearing and full of personality the humble ‘shroom really is.

freedom’s road

The road to freedom must be travelled -

though it is paved with much hardship and suffering;

though uncertain of what the destination will look like;

we are born to reach it.

Thank you to the men, women, and families that suffered much for our country’s freedom.

This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now…

Come further up, come further in!”

that is higher than I.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

I’m thankful for bounty – in all areas of life.

And to celebrate I’m indulging in a fig feast this morning.  Yum!

forest light

From within or from behind,

a light shines through us upon things,

and makes us aware that we are nothing,

but the light is all.

…. a door to the treasure room opened to me.

I was dazzled with the array of riches, the sparkling glittering strands of frozen pearls

and dew draped webs like bejewelled scarves

with which Earth had covered her head in an act of worship.

buy a loaf of bread with one,

and a lily with the other.
