Leaf Peeping

In Autumn, my dad liked to go for a ride through Blue Hills, near Randolph, MA. We would go “Leaf Peeping”.

“Leaf Peeping”: go for a ride to see the colorful Fall leaves on trees in the area .

We’d take the time to note the landscape of colorful Fall leaves with yellows, reds, oranges and browns.  

It was a moment to be present and see what there was to see.  And enjoy it.  

I still like going for such a ride.  

To let go of the busy-ness and just be present. 

Animals are always instinctively present . 

Us humans can have a hard time being present sometimes.  Our minds and thoughts so busy.   

Yet if we slow down for a time, we can relax and find joy.  

Whether it’s when I take a walk outside to hear and see birds.

Or spend a minute or two with our rabbit.  He enjoys a nice head rub.

Or when I let our bearded dragon rest on my shoulder as he looks out the window.  He always looks like he guarding his home.

It’s therapeutic.

Namaste,

LG

Autumn Leaves

“Autumn Leaves”

I’m sad to say I lost my Mom on Sept. 29th.  It has been a tough week, yet with the support of family and friends we’ve been able to take it one day at a time.

I lost my Dad in 2010.

I am in my 50’s.   I’m seeing my girls grow up.

I look out the window to see autumn leaves changing from green to reds, yellows and oranges.

On one of my walks in the morning, I thought about the season’s change. There is a season for everything.  In autumn the leaves of the past season nourish the next spring.  There are seasons in our life.  A lot of my aunts and uncles have passed on.  Those before us supported and nourished our generation. There is a continuum. The leaves fall.  Flowers grow and bloom, then wither.  The flowers and leaves decompose and nourish the soil.  Our children will grow up and learn.  They grow with each experience. They will meet the world as it is in their time.  It will be our turn to nourish this new generation as we go forward.

Great Pond, ponds, nature, Autumn, Fall

Much Love,

“Warm”

Summertime

“Warm”

I live in Rode Island.

A couple of months ago, Rhode Island updated it’s motto to “Warm and Cool”.
Though it’s the smallest state in the nation, it has a large coastal area and a couple of Islands.
Being in the North, we experience all the seasons.
Rhode Island does pride itself on it’s beaches and water activities.
Our girls are at an overnight camp that enjoys waterfront activities on a large pond in southern RI.

Before they left for their adventure at camp, we took in some summer fun activities.
Hiking an Audubon trail
Watching the sun go down at R. Wheeler beach
Blueberry picking and pie making

I’m happy to report also I’ve been busy doing some pet portraits.  Business has warmed up.
I’ve enjoyed bringing out each persona of each dog.
An sweet energenic Spaniel
A lovely white golden retriever
and a multi-colored Boxer that’s face just makes one smile.
Below in Featured Art product I share the Boxer.

Enjoy
