Magical land

Live in simple faith…
Just as this
trusting cherry
flowers, fades, and falls.

~Issa

New life is blossoming with beautiful surprises that delight the heart. These new bursts of life reminds us of what is starting to blossom in our hearts and lives. Enjoy these images of the beautiful East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area that captured my heart the moment I touched this magical land. I take these photos on my daily walks.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remain faithful to the earth, my brothers and sisters,
with the power of your virtue. Let your gift-giving
love and your knowledge serve the meaning of the
earth. Thus I beg and beseech you. Do not let them fly
away from earthly things and beat with their wings
against eternal walls. Alas, there has always been so
much virtue that has flown away…back to the body,
back to life, that it may give the earth a new meaning…
Verily, the earth shall yet become a site of recovery.
And even now a new fragrance surrounds it bringing
salvation-and a new hope.

~Nietzsche

I offer blessings to Mother Earth for her constant giving and patience, for always opening her heart to us, for tending our dreams in the secret wild gardens of her body. May we remember to open our hearts and enter her wild places with awe and love,  rapt in reverence!

    Such a loving, loving tribute to the Mother.

    I was just on the phone with a friend tonight. He’d posted pictures of wildflowers on facebook. I’d just come in from taking pictures of wildflowers which I will be publishing on my blog when I saw his post and now yours! How cool! Spring has sprung (though some winter remains to be seen) and we are all catching a bit of spring fever.

    This is a beautiful offering and wonderful pictures – thanks Marjory!

    Ah…

    Stunning.

    Beautiful pictures, amazing words.

    The more I read you, the more I love your heart and its expression. Thank you for sharing this with us. You are a true messenger of the heart of nature

    Here in Scotland, we are so much further behind in the season – the joy of the snowdrops is still just a few weeks old, but soon the daffodils will be here. This, my favourite season, is such a triumph of the lifeforce. In my own harsh winter, it seemed that Spring would never come – now, in this rebirth of myself, I pray that everyone is touched as deeply by it.

    Once again, thank you!

    Wishing you a triumphant Spring and the beautiful unfolding of your rebirth. Bravo!
