"Just being alive is such a gift, but nobody ever told you to be thankful for existence." - Osho
I had ventured out and took photos of the frost on the web I could see from my window...
... and snapped a few shots of the lovely flock of long tailed tits that regularly visit the feeder. They are such lovely little birds. I can't believe I never even knew they existed until they started visiting here about a year ago.
Then the weather changed, the icy cold gave way to rain and I forgot to post the pictures here.
"It’s good to leave each day behind, like flowing water, free of sadness.
Yesterday is gone and its tale told. Today new seeds are growing." - Rumi
A couple of days ago, I picked up my camera again and I took some more photos indoors.
A mish mash of images - but some good messages and vibes! :-) I thought I'd include some here. . .
I wish you plenty of...
And always remember...
"We become extraordinary
when we realize how extraordinary
our existence is." - Anis Mojgan
Don't forget to...
"The secret of health for both mind and body
is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future,
but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly."
- Siddhartha Gautama
and take time to centre yourself and get in touch with your soul. . .

Thought of the week
"Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember that you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does." - Margaret Wood
