I couldl not photograph the bubbles floating around under a full moon: what an experience!
My camera and I are capable of dawn pictures.
Awhile ago I did not have enough of the mesclun mix for a complete salad for the evening meal so added it, next day, to the morning smoothie. I have been doing it ever since. It adds a unique, spring-like, tangy taste - the herb mix.(The spring mix has a different flavour.)
Today the smoothie is pineapple juice, handful of coleslaw, raw oats, cinnamon, handful of raisins, cup of blueberries and a good handful of the herb mesclun- liquefied in the blender.
Meditation is not something we do: it's something we are. We can tune into it any time and experience the limitless potential of our natural state of being. Listening to our breath is one tool for awareness ... wherever, whenever, whoever, however, whyever we are.
The kids consider how to take a picture of what someone is dreaming in Joshua and his Gang. Chapter 6 The Dreamers Page 31 (freely accessible)
That was sixty years ago; it may well now be a reality.
The chronicler of Joshua wonders at what stage present day technology is at with regard to retrieving memory from the document of the mind and offering a person the chance to experience an episode again.
I can remember a solo train journey when I was five years old; the red shiny suitcase, kindly conductor, water from a tap in the wall and the pointy paper cup, the excitement of travelling to an aunt's and uncle's farm for a summer visit. What fun it would be to relive the details.
It is not often, now, that I want to fall asleep and easily can't. But a recent time of ideas and thoughts and planning in the middle of the night, with a more-than-usual scheduled day ahead, had me busily buzzing and wanting to sleep. It suddenly occurred to me that my thoughts were very noisy. Hmmm. I put in some ear plugs, the wax kind. The inner noise changed. I could hear the sound of my breathing. It was soothing. And became more so. I drifted asleep.
On the radio this morning I heard "Mint Taking Pennies Out of Circulation". And for a moment or two I amused myself with the notion that a candy was responsible for a now non-circulating status of the coins.
The radio piece went on to speculate what old pennies were worth and just how many pennies were being saved/collected/hoarded.
This is my present stash. In the past they would have gathered over many months and eventually been rolled into maybe three or four dollars worth and taken to the bank. Not sure what will happen to them now, this seeming end-of-the road group.
Thirty years ago this is what I was doing with pennies. Click on Preview this book; scroll to Contents and the Funny I Happened to Be There section; or just go to page 109. (Sorry, I have not yet figured out how to provide a direct link)
