Perfect weatherPosted: September 19, 2012
The weather this morning was pure perfection. Chilly. Brisk. Invigorating. The air smelled fresh, clean, with just a hint of the earthiness of autumn. The morning dew sparkled in the meadows. Crows, still meeting in the woods, cawed out to each other. A blue jay joined in the ruckus, while killdeers flew overhead announcing that they’ll soon be leaving.
There is nothing to fix, nothing to do, nothing needs to be better, nicer, or in a certain way, all that stuff is just thoughts, there’s no need to take any interest in it. How things are is just fine. Rest. Rest on the inside.

And this do I call immaculate perception of all things: to want nothing else from them, but to be allowed to lie before them as a mirror with a hundred facets.
A family member is arriving today for a short visit with us here at Breezy Acres. We have plans. Lots of plans. I’m not sure how many we’ll follow through on (because we can’t do it all), but I’m sure the next few days will be full.
There will be hikes and bike rides, maybe a train ride, music, movies, and good food.
Whatever we do, I’m sure it will be fun. I’m also sure my blogging/computer time will be limited. I’ll post if and when I can. Otherwise, I’ll see you on Sunday or Monday.
Why fret away your life? See the willow tree by the river;
there it is, watching the water flow by.
That’s about it from the Bogs on this lovely Wednesday in September. It’s a wonderful day for a hike or a leisurely stroll. We’ll be watching the sunset from the porch this evening. It will be a little chilly out there so bring a jacket.
Have a delightful end to the week and a wonder-filled weekend!
