' A WEDDING SHOWER & OTHER THINGS"*
Today is the count down to one of our best friend's wedding shower.
Another girlfriend, who we call our Georgia Peach, is in from Atlanta, favors made and china, crystal, linen table cloths and napkins and silver ready for the table settings .......The bride just turned 70 (altho does not look anywhere near that number) - and we are a part of a big summer wedding.
A time of memories, reflections, and much happiness. A time to really be in each moment..........to be aware of each breath, each hug, each word ..........
In the cool of this morning, today - I sat and watched dawn break across the lake and listened to the warblers' beautiful and happy melody, the blue jays lining up orders for the day's agenda .... and then walked my lawn and picked some flowers. This was not one I picked because as you will see in the upper right corner is a bubble bee tasting his morning necter.
I went into my studio and smelled the smells of paints, cleaned brushes, wood, and those smells that only studios have.
I sat quietly, halloed by a sunbeam lighting the floor. I meditated in the quietness
and gave thanks the miracles of nature and the miracles of life.
