The Great Heart

Light dancer

If we demand enlightenment, it hides. . . All that we can do is make ourselves enlightenment-prone.  We learn to treasure the possibility of awakening in all moments and circumstances.  We learn to simplify and cultivate the receptivity of heart that can be touched by profound understanding.  We learn to listen deeply and discover stillness amid the movement in our world.

Ballerinas unfocused

The photo challenge for this week is Unfocused.  Unfocused is usually the state of the photographs I take at my granddaughter Emma’s dance recitals.  Every now and then, I find myself liking one or two of the unfocused shots.  (You might want to click on the first photo for a better look at it.)

262: Sunday signage (and more)

(Sign seen somewhere on a back road somewhere in Ohio on our way home this afternoon.)

Well, I’ve never had a straw berry but if they are as good as strawberries, perhaps we should have stopped at Straw Berrie’s to check them out.

74: Quickie

(Santa performing in a Christmas dance recital.)

We’re just back from a 5 hour ride (round trip) to see the Exquisite Emma in her Christmas dance recital.  She was, of course, exquisite.  And beautiful, incredible, and the most talented girl in the world.  Not that I’m biased or anything.  🙂

I did manage to get a few decent photos of her while she was dancing but won’t be posting them, as usual.  I only mention it because sometimes people ask.

We hit some of this on the way back:

(White out on the highway)

Thankfully it was a short-lived snow squall.  We went through a few of them, none lasting too long.  There were a few accidents of the minor variety (usually one car that looked like it slid off the road).

I’m on my way out for a walk after dark since I didn’t have time today to fit in much outdoor time (5 minutes here, 5 minutes there, that sort of thing).  I doubt I’ll roam far or see much.  It’s snowing and pretty dark out there.  But if anything exciting happens, I’ll try to find the time to come back and update this post.  It’s not likely but… ya never know.
