“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” Lao Tzu
Reflections: Nature Does Not Hurry… – “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
We spend time worrying…
Rushing here and there in pain
Wondering … what if?
Wondering … what if
The sky would fall if we stop
The sun and moon too…
“Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.” Rachel Carson
Reflections: Nature Does Not Hurry – “Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” John Muir
Sky, sun, moon won’t fall
‘Cos nature does not hurry
Pause and breathe… slowly
We prance round like deer
Heading straight to those headlights
Thinking… what happened?

“What a liberation to realize that the ‘voice in my head’ is not who I am. ‘Who am I, then?’ The one who sees that.” Eckhart Tolle
I am a Peace Blogger just like the Lennon Wall Peace Image in Prague shows.
Today I signed up for the WordPress Zero to Hero daily challenge. Our first assignment is to write and publish a “who I am and why I’m here” post.
Who and Why? My initial reaction to the question was to wax philosophical and this is what came out: I am a child of the earth and, when the storms come, I return to the familiar; my faith and family. This is true but there are some facts about me and my blogging interests that might appeal to a new blog friend. My basic bio is on my About Page and I’ve been blogging for 5+ years. I started as a way to stay in touch with my agents and then it evolved into a personal lifestyle blog. As far as blogging is concerned, I call myself a Peace and Lifestyle Blogger. I’d love to add humor to that short list but I’m not quite there.
Why are you blogging, rather than keeping a personal journal? I blog because I enjoy the process of exchanging ideas, writing about topics that intrigue me and my readers, and purely for the joy of writing and sharing. Writing is hard work but the joy comes after each piece is born and molded into something readable. I keep personal journals too because my writing life doesn’t end here. I have two other blogs, several folders, and notepads of material accumulated over the years. What about you? More below!
