The renewal of the spirit is a necessary thing.

November 9, 2012

Renewal…at play. Chasing the sun for the WordPress Photo Challenge and Photo Friday.

It’s that special time, here in the park, when the afternoon is about to give way to evening and the rocks are currently lit up with the most innocent and cheeky pink blush.

I feel complete with a composed spirit and fully aware of the freedom of my time (it might fly fast on strong wings but I tell it where to go).

I can’t help but compare how I’m feeling today to a happy pup, free to jump from rock to rock with absolute joy.

The evening sunshine shows the way thru the forest.

I follow the sun to the top of the park.

As far as I can see, the world is flooded with warm gold and pink hues and the breeze is gently shaking the last of the leaves from the trees.

Life isn’t always a bowl of freshly picked acorns. Sometimes my head hurts and from time to time, I suffer from heartaches but I soldier on!
I’m content to be a lion heart in a lamb suit.

I turn my face toward the sun and let it warm my little sunflower heart.

It’s such a beautiful world here this evening. I thought this very thing to myself.

It’s such a beautiful world.

      Sabra, that was my favorite photo too. That reddish light on the cedars and firs…it just doesn’t get any lovelier in the forest. :)

    Story in photo’s, love it, especially #4. Immediately I thought of spreading a blanket at the foot of the tree, lying down, breathing deep and looking up through the branches.

      Thank you Monica. I’d love to spread a blanket and have a little meditative lie-down and feel the sun setting. :)

    All the photos are beautiful, Veronica, but I’m particularly taken by the water. Always have been. And, there is something about animals by the water. Great post!

      Oh Michelle, you should have seen him. He was so happy jumping around on the rocks. His owner kept calling for him and I kept thinking, “leave him alone, he’s having so much fun!” I love water too. Must be something to do with my Cancerian personality.

      Oh thank you Sue Ann. I love taking risks with photos into the sun and don’t ever mind the lens flare. :)

    I do find water or being by water quite refreshing… It does calm the soul and renew the spirit. 😉
