I left the path only to find more to behold with my naked eyes. The sky was blue with a crisp cleanness in the air. The sun, just coming up over the mountains to the east of me. I looked northward to see the top of Mt. Timpanogos bathed in the snow that previously fell this week. I was even aware of chiaroscuro and tenebrism effects against the slopes of the mountains as I progressed towards the Lee library.
I'm glad my day has started with a bit of a nature fix, with gratitude and thanks. Now I can read and prep for exams and research for the day. Thank you Mother Earth for all you offer me to behold and to grow in awe of. I hope to be open to creating many more opportunities this winter.
|Something to look forward to when it snows.|

I have read several of the articles now and if your interested in bringing a greater level of peace into your life and practice then I suggest reading this journal. :)
I am interested in the term Dukkha, which basically means the suffering we put ourselves into with thoughts that aren't correct but we think they are especially if we feel an emotion with the thoughts. Then I heard about the 4 noble truths which this journal also addresses and that was interesting. I love using or trying to use loving kindness meditation and there is a nice article about this too. Plus much more.

It was at this beach that I learned I was accepted into the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course in SLC lead by Vicky Kennedy Overfelt.
That acceptance started the beginning of several new path opening up for me to enter. Below is the link for the 60 Minutes production on mindfulness with Jon Kabat-Zinn.
I am now working the steps to become certified as an instructor. Maybe I will help others but mostly I want to help myself which will indeed help others on their journey as well.
Rats, the site says you need a membership... Above is the youtube video: https://youtu.be/KDxIBQT7F54 and this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbLVTZuTdmQ

I'm sitting in our rv, Gove has gone to bed and I'm watching our teens being children as they are out catching fire flies and i am listening to the amazing sounds of the Limberlost.
The kids just brought me 7 fire flies and are back out to find other creatures of the night. Kind of like in The Girl of the Limberlost.
Today we stopped at the James Townsend store and found some treasures. Tia a drum, Eli blue linen breeches, Gove grey linen breeches and short bodices for Beth and myself plus a new fife, coins, buttons. We left the festival brochure and Ryan gave us a tour of the whole factory. We were very fortunate to see how the felt hats are stretched.
Tonight is what i needed...nature.
We have arrived just after closing yet able to walk to the home of my favorite author.
It's almost 10pm and our teens are out side catching fire flies.
The Limberlost woods are as noisy as Gene discribed them in her wonderful book Freckles.
