Time for Dreaming

time drifts slowly by

My son fly fishes at dawn on Lower Crystal Lake, Summit County, CO.

Thinking about Confidence

somewhere within us

a child's confidence:

willingness to let go

trusting the landing

If I believe I can, I am closer to accomplishing it.
How does this belief in oneself get squelched?

As children start a new school term, may their confidence be nurtured and grow strong.

I give thanks for teachers who find the best in a child,
encouraging self-expression and emotional growth.

Morning Meditation

gold touches treetops
 a young buck watches.

light leaks to sky
haze veils peaks
faint trail beckons

only this moment
morning meditation

Still gardening, hiking, and enjoying the summer here at high altitude in Colorado.
