Boundless

I have been captive to my senses for these last two days. 
When I have written long lyrical posts about the sounds and the smells and the feel of the air, it has been a process of making a mental cast of the feelings, then later taking it out and pouring, sifting, wedging words into it. 
I break open the cast and have a sculpted post.


All weekend I have been an animal alive in the moments.
In remembrance later, in the cold fall wind or watching the winter fire, I will find the cast, put away somewhere in my mind. 
Tonight it is too big, too soft, with no edges or bindings.

Sounds like you were perfectly content and lost in just Being!

Sometimes the moment is enough. Memory is for later, Living is for now. Glad you are having a wonderful weekend.

This must be in the air. I have made it a goal for 2010 to just take each moment as it comes and find the small, amazing beauty of life and family. LOVELY picture!

trying to find a perfect place to do so many things for a short period of time.

so yeah....look up and smell everything.
listen beyond we perceived....

but you know what i am searching for the things I do not know...

the things you do not know Inay will take a lifetime as it does for us all once we realise there is so much we'll never know, understand or grasp.If we can find peace, contentment in the simple things we'll be very fortunate.

lost in your own world . . . . lost in the Universe. . . .
The best place to be when reality, and the hustle and bustle of everyday life take a back seat.

It's what happens to me when I indulge in poetry, really listen to music or lie in the grass, letting my eyes rest on the sky above.

May there be many more days like that for you.
