For everything that is YES!
I thank you God for this most day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.

Today is my birthday and if there is anything that I’ve learned in my 54 years on this planet it is YES! YES! YES, damnit, YES!
This picture is the embodiment of YES – a sandhill crane performing his annual “recommitment dance” for his lifetime partner. And ultimately, the most important partnership we enter into in this one precious life is with ourselves. Each day is an invitation to recommit to the gift we’ve been given and to dance with the circumstances we’ve been given. Dance with joy. Dance with fear. Say yes to life!

“Dance with joy. Dance with fear.” Oh yes!
Wonderful to hear from you Nancy – I love the dance metaphor, each emotion and experience is a guest at the table.
“…the most important partnership we enter into in this one precious life is with ourselves.” OMG! YES!! Inspired and grateful for you on my email box!!!

Susan, Your ekphrastic art speaks to me – wings, migration, alive in nature. Thank you for stopping by as new doors beckon me to open them.
Evelyn! You are most welcome – we open doors for one another that we are often not aware of. Thank you for being my friend.
