be (ing)

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Winnie, my early morning photo assistant & best companion / queen anne's lace sead head / window box petunias & impatience / lovely lavender wild asters / more asters from the air field / 29 Black Street beauty / Minnie (our other newly adopted female) / bright lights cosmos / my guy Oliver with lilliput zinnias

Be like the sun for grace and mercy. 
Be like the night to cover others' faults. 
Be like running water for generosity. 
Be like death for rage and anger. 
Be like the Earth for modesty. 
Appear as you are. Be as you appear.


best prayer for be-ing

ps - yes D is now a radio controlled airplane pilot

  2. I love the zinnias from your previous posts. They are such happy little flowers! I think your camera is going to be on my Christmas wish list. Your photos are just spectacular. And, Miss Minnie...did she find you? She looks so loving!!

  3. Lovely words from Rumi. Beautiful images from your garden and world dear Susan, there is always something of great beauty to be seen there. Miss Minnie looks so sweet and cute.
    Happy flying to D!
