Someone could get to thinking that I have fallen out of the writing habit, given that it’s been a while between posts. Not the case. Every day I do some kind of writing: content for websites at work, documents for organizations I volunteer with, or simple journaling for myself. Those words end up in the […]
Where I live the pouring rain of dreary spring lingers still. I hope that where you are the sun of coming summer is shining.

In a miraculous way, he opened himself up to become a channel for story. He surrendered to it. Story unfolded through him, complete and beautiful from beginning to end. And when he started to think, he stopped.
This is a day to be Public, Intentional and Explicit allies of LGBTQ2SIA+ people. There is no end and no repeating pattern to people. Let’s affirm that. Let’s celebrate that by eating pie!
I can’t improve on your observations, Arlene, but I’ll add one.
Contrast always stands out: White birch among the dark barks, a good thing. (Yes, it’s okay to be different.)
You are a great noticer, a reminder for me to do the same on walks. 🙂
It’s one of my mindfulness practices. I stop and look really closely or intently at something – peel back as many layers of it as I can. It’s always inspiring in some way.
We have birch trees in our front yard. I adore them, even with the bark they shed willy-nilly they show me that being your own tree is where it is at.
I love a birch tree, and it always amazes me how far birch bark gets blown from a tree after a major storm. I guess that’s another thing about birch trees – the thing about them that makes the unique and beautiful is also useful.
Is the bark easy enough to break into pieces to use as a decorative mulch? If so, I would think it would be beautiful. I like your mindfulness and inspiring thoughts. Thank You for sharing! Blessings!
I’ve never heard of a birch bark mulch. It’s very light – it would probably blow away! Interesting visual though. It would be beautiful.
You are right. I probably would blow away. Yes, it would be beautiful. Oh, well! Some things just are not meant to be. Thank You for responding!

Thank you very much for the vote of confidence. I don’t usually do awards though. My reward is making connections with people and giving the world a little more light. That’s good enough for me!
