15 minutes

It's truly a gift what 15 minutes can bring...a much needed break, time for the expansion of a creative thought, or time to give something else precious moments of our present mind...

Amazement emerges when an ugly crack in the pavement becomes beautiful or when I can hear a broken leaf murmuring the approach of fall.... But it's the knowing words from friends that draws my attention and the circles of warmth around my heart and mind. So with gratitude, these last 15 minutes I have are spent thinking of and thanking you...

much love to you and may your weekend bring you light...

  12. I love the juxtaposition in your photograph of the beautiful flower next to the crack on the road. Thank you for your inspirational words too. Blessings!

  13. This is gorgeous MJ! I've been reading your recent posts and thinking so much about you and the time of transition and contemplation you are experiencing.

    Seems to me that it is perfect for you to be able to get close enough to the ground to see the beauty in what otherwise would be an ugly crack if viewed from afar.

    Seems to be the same with some of your own reflections...getting closer, no matter how uncomfortable, can change the perspective to one of beauty.

    Sending hugs MJ!

  14. 15 minutes can definitely make all the difference.
    Hope your weekend was warm, sunny and full of laughter.
