Love is Everywhere

Posted by on May 14, 2014 in Live Your True Nature, Love, Nature | 0 comments

Love is Everywhere! I see hearts often in nature, though the surroundings aren’t always beautiful. I recently saw an automobile oil leak in a parking lot in the shape of a heart. Today’s heart came in the form of a cut-out in a daffodil petal. Keep your eyes open for signs of love! It starts with each of us.♥ I’d love to hear what you see!

Leaping into life…whee!

This morning: Beautiful hills, fog lifting, light rays beaming like spotlights, chorus of chirping crickets all as I bathe in the soft air holding and comforting me like a warm bath. A slightly cool breeze surprises me with a kiss as refreshing as a lake swim. I have no thoughts as I float on nature’s bliss. It’s not easy to put to words. I write in the present tense though I’m back at the computer, it’s as if I am still living in that moment. It’s something I wish everyone could experience, though I’m sure some might stand beside me seeing only hills before them, while all my senses are engaged and I’m deliciously overwhelmed.

I’m excited to post the final photo of the series I started last Friday,  “Procrastinating, distracted, or rightfully drawn…?” and go on a bike ride to discover a new swimming hole. I was headed there last night as I met the flowers on the side of the road. We communicated so long, that it got dark before I could explore.

So here is the final photo from last Friday to help us leap into whatever’s next for us. Check in to see if it truly feels scary, or if it’s actually the energy of excitement. Here to me, it seems as if the spider is going to leap and slide down the flower petals. Whee! Have fun leaping into the weekend, and a long one for those celebrating Labor Day in the States. Here we go, wahoo!

Letting it go haywire

Posted by on Aug 29, 2013 in Live Your True Nature, Nature | 0 comments

Interesting hair day or just leaving behind all routine and letting it go haywire today? This is not what I planned to post today! I had another picture from my ‘daily distractions’ and then thought I might stray from that and post what I photographed on my morning breakfast walk or one of the other three percolating post ideas! I’ll leave it at this today. A photo from one of my daily ‘distractions’ of, what, I’m not sure, but clearly a flower doing it’s own thing! Here’s to letting it all go any which way we’re called today!

Living our true essence

Beauty throughout the life cycle & interconnectedness

In my last post, “Procrastinating, distracted, or rightfully drawn?”, I shared what drew me from my work at the patio table. This week, I will continue to share images that caught my eye within a half hour period that day!

I was drawn to this wilting flower, one starting to droop and another in full life. Ah, the stages of life and surprisingly, the beauty in each!

I found myself honoring the life lived and beauty brought to all (ok, maybe just me here in the yard) of the flower now wilted. Though, it hadn’t lived to bring me, or anyone else beauty;  it had lived true to it’s unique flower essence, whether or not anyone saw its beauty or beyond it’s outward appearance!

Noticing the way the grass and wilted flower were intertwined brought to mind our interconnectedness!

Procrastinating, distracted or rightfully drawn…?

Beauty in Big Picture and Details  ©Britt Nielsen

Beauty in the Big Picture and the Details
©Britt Nielsen

The air was warm, sweet and soft.  Such a succulent summer day, called me outside, so I granted myself permission to upload and tag photos from the patio table in the shade of the umbrella. After the photos loaded, it was time to go in to edit where there would be less glare on the computer screen. Was I procrastinating? I’ll say I was distracted–really rightfully drawn to the beauty around me. Over the next few days, I’ll share photographs of nature’s worthy distractions from that day. This image reminded me that beauty is in the details AND the big picture for me. The blurred flower in the background adds to the big picture and details are evident in the sharpness of the  flower in the foreground with the spider on a petal. Both contribute to the fullness and richness of life!
