Take a Moment For Something Beautiful

You'll be glad you did.

Look at something beautiful... clear your head. Be stimulated without interaction. Find a a quiet place.

Breathe. Sometimes nature will surprise you with the gift of tranquility.

Look at what we have been given stewardship over, and know that we have the responsibility to preserve it. To do otherwise is irresponsible.

If I could give you a gift today, it would be the gift of peace.

If I can't give you that, at least I can give you a flower. We ought to start somewhere, eh?

Peace Be With You, always.

Aw, Gunfighter, you made my day. This was literally the most peaceful and uplifting moment I've had all weekend. Gorgeous! Thank you. I'm going to go outside and stand in my garden for a few minutes before diving back into my studies.

That was beautiful, thanks.

And by the way, I love that you have proudly displayed the Rockin' Girl Blog award. :)

San said...

Namaste' and thank you for "something beautiful" today.

Gunfighter said...

Thanks, Liz! My dear blog-pal SMID was nice enough to mention me for the Rockin' Girl Blogger thingy, which was pretty cool of her to do. Since I consider myself to be a feminist of a sort, and since I'm not at all insecure about my masculinity, I was pelased to put that little piece of blog-bling in my sideboard.
