Notes and Musings

I am always amazed by the energy of trees. I am amazed by their tenacity and their persistence; especially those in the most unlikely places - on a precipice, in only a small toehold of earth or even a planter removed from the rest of the ground - detached and sequestered from its brethren arboretum. Even as dry and parched as the earth has become tiny leaves burst forth from tiny fingers of delicate branches and a field of green shades a small patch of the thirsty earth near the EarthGift soap studio.

Smoldering fires persist in the central New Mexico mountains
from downed power lines and dry lightening strikes.
The reports of fires spring forth from the central mountains of New Mexico. The winds are eerily persistent too late in the season. It is a combination that gives us pause. As I track the fires I am both awe struck and humbled. Though it is usual to be mindful of fire season and to have a plan; this fire season seems to loom larger. The red flags flap by the ranger station more often, the forest restrictions more frequent. It strikes me that the earth is healing herself as best she can to bring herself back to equilibrium.

My job is to reflect that process. I must find my center and bring myself to my own balance - literally and metaphorically. I wonder, do I internally have my own scorched earth; my own places of inundation from mental tornadoes and emotional hurricanes, my own internally razed landscapes?

There is extreme weather inside and out. This is where a discipline of spirit and faith of the unseen serve me best. I love the quote from a recent movie. "Everything will be all right in the end. And if it is not all right, it is not yet the end."

We live to bathe another day.

I have been browsing on-line using very much time, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before. skin whitening.
