It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

State of Being..., Here

"Wherever you are, be there totally.
If you find your here and now intolerable
and it makes you unhappy,
you have three options:
remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally" -eckhart tolle-

When I went for counseling for marriage, the minister told me that in nearly the same words. Removing myself from the situation was my choice. For everyone, the answer is different. Bless you for the post today.

I'd be happy in your garden-the flowers are beautiful & also the bees. Do you have a hive of your own?
