Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Music Monday! Ramble On

The Leaves are falling all around.....

I know I will be rambling on all week about that, because well,  leaves have fallen and continue to fall.
The mountains are really beautiful, with the reds, yellows, oranges, and tiny touches of green filling the landscape. 
Mother nature is a wonderful painter. Though this picture doesn't do it justice, the drive to the trail we hiked yesterday has some spectacular views of the 'canvas'.

As we drove the gravel road out of Pisgah National Forest after our great hike, single leaf by single leaf, they fell. They floated down, leisurely it seemed, and landed right on the windshield. We must have hit about 10 of them right smack in the middle of the windshield.  We could only drive about 15 miles an hour because the gravel road was quite bumpy in areas. 

We got to enjoy each leaf as it landed, and witnessed all the others, one by one, floating down the mountainsides. 

And today, we will be raking all the leaves that have fallen all around our yard. Not an entirely horrible task, as the smell of fall is ever apparent when you rake, and nothing brings feelings of fall better than the smell of it.

 Finally, I am embracing Fall, Autumn, and everything gorgeous about it. And you will be hearing me ramble on about it all week.

What is your favorite part of fall?


  1. I love autumn sunny days. When it's warm enough to sit out in the sun in your cardi for an hour or two before it gets too chilly. And running through crunchy leaves is always great fun!

  2. I love fall! You can never ramble too much about fall, it is just so beautiful and spontaneous!
