When Being Empty Is Being Whole
Beauty’s Second Duty
Serendipity of Giving Tuesday
My “donate” link was broken in yesterday’s posting. This donate link does work. That serendipitous mishap became my opportunity (once the swearing stopped) to share with you why I created and maintain Leaf and Twig and how your support will be used.
My purpose is to offer to you – every day – a moment’s appreciation of nature’s beauty in photos, a brief reflection in words to increase the incandescence of joy and hold a light when life is dark. I offer this quiet space for universal connection and recognition. I hold the door open for you and invite you in – in to nature and meaning making, for some respite and nourishment.
Your donation enables me to bring Leaf and Twig’s daily moment of beauty and peace to an even wider audience and affords me the opportunity of time which is so essential to creating.
What might our world be like
if everyone paused, just for a moment, once each day
and received the beauty?
Bee At Work
Although it has been ages
since the corral gate has kept anything in or out
it still refuses to let go.
At The Root Of It
The humble turnip reveals
all the beauty, all the struggle
The bog reclaims the brambles
to feed the fern and bulbs.
Walk the soft path
in the cool water.
It is purpose enough.
