Love.

Love is unique in every moment. What about Love could we venture to say this photograph illustrates?

Love comes in all shades, shapes and sizes. Deep veins run through our Love. Or is it that Love runs through our veins?

Our backgrounds, whether as comfortable as moss or hard and rocky, contribute to the contrast of where we struggle and where we shine at holding an open stream of Love for ourselves and others.

Shadows, like birthmarks reveal the individuality of our Love. Whether or not our edges are smooth or ruffled, Love still exists in some shape or form.

Each of us has an everlasting umbilical cord as a conduit for giving and receiving Love. We all have the pathway to let this rich nourishment of Love flow!

Grasshopper greetings to all!
Have you ever had one of those times when you’re finding your way through emotions as tangled as these blades of grass? I admit I’ve been in that place .  It can seem dark and confusing underneath, though there’s always a way through if we breathe deeply, and look for the light. During those occasions is it time to kindly embrace your shadow, the part of you, you might not be so proud of, or demand change? Is it as if you’re trying to birth a dinosaur, when the dinosaur egg needs to hatch in its own time? Are all the emotions too heavy to sort through? Would it feel better and even more productive to stop thinking and to breathe? To stop spinning your wheels in the mud, making deeper ruts, and instead get out and walk gracefully, admiring the pattern in those ruts, and all the beauty that surrounds you, and is within you? You know the way, Dear Grasshopper! Here you are emerging from underneath the tangled blades, ready for what’s next!

A Single Blade?

Single Blade, So Much More ©Britt Nielsen

Single Blade, So Much More

A Single Blade
Is that what you see?
A single blade catching the sun?
I am so much more.
Pause.
See all of life reflected here.
You are here too.
Can you feel your presence?
Pause a moment, breathing it in.
I am a single blade.
Yes.
I lean out in search of Solitude.
I sway with Wind as my lead, though
without me, there would be no dance
on the water’s edge.
Oh, how Water ripples with glee
at our playful dance.
So, now we are three.
Wait there’s more.
You make four.
Stay and dance.
Single Blade am I,
bending, dipping and
masquerading as a Single Blade.
Can you not see the depth of me
beyond my curves, fold down the middle,
and narrowing tip?
Life explodes within and beyond
the shadows of my sinewy ridges.
I plunge to my depths and pop up for air,
diving deeper again and again
until I erupt laughing,
breathing fully now.
I am me!

Single Blade, So Much More

First signs of autumn

Today feels like a day to organize, curl up with a book, journal, reflect on what’s to be created next, stroll through the woods… Here are some signs of autumn from my last walk in the woods. Though most leaves are still green and on the trees, these in their autumnal glory surprised me with their vibrant colors and how artfully they had landed on the ground. The fungal variety also never ceases to amaze me, especially this time of year! And of course, there are hearts–love everywhere, and in all the seasons! Oh how I love the woods! What do you love about this time of year wherever you are?
