I’m sitting here under the cool breeze of the air conditioner at my Airbnb smiling. It’s actually quite a treat as my own abode has no AC, a choice made so we could fund our dream; living on a sailboat.

It has been three and a half years living with no AC and it is possible even in Florida! Agree to this because what a good way to know if I could even fathom living within the natural elements 24/7 adrift a mobile home on the water. It certainly brings out the curl in my hair!

My travels have strictly been on land and my respect and love for mother nature is in explicitly invigorating and personally revealing.  Whatever lens I peer through, macro or telephoto reveals a teaching, research beyond the subconscious.

The fact is this truth, well it has a way of getting into your bones nourishing your mind and body daily. This refreshment, this knowing cannot be replicated with external remedies though adopting an animal comes mightily close. Meet Phoenix, newest fuzzball extension of my family.

Living with kitten energy kinda reminds me of my grandchildren. Curious creatures adapting to our environment, play, snuggle, kneed and motor purr right into your ❤️ heart.  These little ones were found in the woods, and when showed this pic of him in the cardboard box? Well it was his eyes and that NOSE, yup it was all I saw.

So basically been working my ass off with goals of DEBT FREE and in my heart know this doesn’t happen without making sacrifices and especially being patient with self. Sit here today amongst the booming sounds, its July 4th and Independence day has arrived.  With tears flowing see while helping others dreams emerge into reality,  lost myself in the process. My desire so much to recapture; You and Me, has left me questioning where to go from here.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; …

Goodness knows oh so needed some grounding, in the nuance of rejection found a balance, saw the disbursement of heavens portal open where truth descended and we both found sustenance. With this knowing I rest and look forward to the next adventure.

This lil one grew faint in the sun, saw the scrape on his head and he did poop berries in my hand as I held his fragile being in my hand. He was panting so and appeared disoriented. Set him on a fence and knew he would be fine once he found his bearings. Sometimes life has a way distracting as we consume what we shouldn’t disoriented we lose our way however angels have a way of appearing and setting us in the right direction. And goodness he sure did make me laugh!! He took me places certainly didn’t expect to go!

Here we discover nature in all its wonderment, we look into the eyes of the innocent and remember, resting under this tree called life we give thanks for family. His family during this season, blessed me so.

“Forgive me Father let me not cause pain, let my children learn and grow and launch into your design, after all without Your blessing everything is of naught. Let our lives glorify and reflect Your truth Your Love Your reality as eternity whispers the reasons why.” .Selah~

Brushing off the dust will emerge yet again, this time hopefully not living out of suitcases.
