White Flowers,Letting Go, and Sunday Meditation

In letting go, there is a falling, then a soaring freedom to rise upon...
So much color abounds this time of year, lovely rich saturated colors and so many wonderful flowers and gardens.  Rich in inspiration.  They grace my table and sometimes I place a single bloom elsewhere in our house.  Refreshing visually, some with a luscious scent too.  But so short lived, as so are we... a reminder to live fully in our days and savor our moments in the sun.  

Sunday Meditations
"The Art of Letting Go" by Richard Rohr is an audio book I am enjoying listening now.  Rohr is a Franciscan priest in New Mexico, the land of enchantment, and is engaging in this book centering on the wisdom of Saint Francis, exploring spiritual mystery, and letting go.  A very good and worthwhile summer read.

  A recent page from my journal:
Flowers bloom
Then fade...

Falling beautifully,
Cascading down gracefully,

Falling is unstoppable.

I savor the moments of those heady pure white blossoms,
I linger a moment in reverie and wistfulness,
And know I must soon turn the page...
