Wings and Water

 

Greetings from a place of good expectations, where we cheerily anticipate the coming warm weather. Amanda took these pics during her most recent visit to our sons home in Weybridge, which is close to London. And what a beautiful day that was for April. The little white flowers, and butterfly, were taken in our garden, but they begged to be included. I hope you agree.

Because I lack sufficient stamina to continue writing, I will rest for now, but not before saying thank you to all of our readers and followers, with our gratitude for the support you bring to this, our peace-loving blog.

And with that, it’s Peace again, and out from me

The Golden Season

Greetings from this writer. These pics are dedicated to those good readers who have sent healing wishes my way. The last five pics were taken one week later than the others, and I think it’s easy to see how fast the golden season encroaches.

Since returning, after experiencing a difficult summer, to a relatively manageable physical state, I am taking every opportunity, while it lasts, to  get out and capture local scenery at its best. If heaven permits, I will continue.

By the way, I hope you liked the alternative picture format, and I hope too to return very soon.

With thanks from me. Peace, and Namaste.

 A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread—and Thou,
Beside me singing in the Wilderness,
 And oh, Wilderness is Paradise now.

Sincere Appreciation

With sincere appreciation to all our readers and followers. We wish you all a very Happy Christmas, and the blessings and joys of inner peace throughout the coming year.

 

I’ll finish with Amanda’s Christmas message to her FB friends, which I find quite moving:

 

 

 

Until 2016, Namaste from Amras.

 

The Foot of A Hill

TreeBeard's Portraits

At the foot of a hill,

By the back of the house,

Where a forest begins,

And this old man is standing.

 I will promise you this,

If your conscience is clear,

He will show you the faces,

Of faeries a-dancing.

Then wherever you are,

In this world of such glory,

You’ll never let anyone

Steal your story.

Namaste to all, I’m really very happy to be back among you so soon. It can’t happen often enough, as it signals that an extended period of mobility is on the go for me. Greeting every day with gratitude goes a long way.

I hope you like the pic above, please click on it for a great close-up view. That tree is one of many you can see from our windows; and it really does have those human-like features, though I admit to cheating very slightly, by putting in his right eye to mirror the genuine left eye. Click the thumbnail below to see his true features; the eye and nose, I think, are uncanny.

I notice that many of my fellow bloggers are having connection difficulties, and I am no exception, having daily drop-outs that can last for minutes, or hours. Also, mail and other notifications coming sometimes two to three days late. So, my late apologies to Jay, if you are reading, because all the no-show pics you sent arrived three days late. Never the less Jay, I thank you again.

And thanks too to all readers and followers, I would post so much more for you if I were physically able. Even so, let’s maintain ourselves daily in good cheer, for, as ever, who knows what blessings tomorrow is going to bring.

For now, peace from Amras.
