This is one of my favorite places. When I have had all that I can take and more, I slip out to this spot in the forest...right by the water. I may only have a few minutes, but the stillness is exquisite.
This is my spot - the tree that holds my back uncomplaining, so that I may rest. Little ringlets of moss, cool and dark green, brush against my bare legs.
I look up and gaze at this water. I am amazed at the quiet. Little fish draw rings of circles for me. Winged creatures of all sorts glide by silently, in my presence. Every bit of it, all for me.
Life giving green nourishes me. I nourish me, because I'm all that's left.

Beautiful trees are in bloom where I am. I am filled with love and desire by these luscious pink flowers! The wind was so soft today, so fresh and it was blowing the velvety petals all around me.
The ritual of hanging sweet smelling wet diapers on the line is one of my most treasured acts. I love the sight of them flying in the spring breeze. I feel this amazing sense of contentment and joy as I line them up, one by one. I can't help it - I love the heady scent of the wet laundry!
This sensual tree is blushing with the frivolity of May! :) Who would have thought such fufillment can come from diapers and spring trees?!
