Motions and emotions

Northern New Mexico winds

I was drawn to record this amazing chatting of branches and trees. I had no idea what they were saying to each other. I hazarded a few guesses:

We’re free. Look how beautiful my hair is. Look how flexible I am. Look how beautiful and colorful I am. Don’t you just love yellow?

Were they talking to me? To each other? To all connected roots around them? Was it a warning? Change is near. Soon, you’ll see us for who/what we are. We will be naked. Be prepared.

I believe it’s all that and more I’ll never understand. But who needs to know when the beauty is so breathtaking, it’s all you can do but observe and breathe in nature in all its power and glory.

Many blessings folks! Sandi

Water makes things grow

The great Cottonwood, Northern New Mexico

Be kind, be loving, be gentle with yourself – you’ll see things bloom before you know it… My Anchor recording says it best maybe. A picture is worth a thousand words (or in my case, less).

This cottonwood is very old. All cottonwood trees, like any living thing really, needs water to survive. The farmer, or gardener doesn’t pull up a chair and sit there to see the progress of their seeds… Sometimes, the frustration of planting something beautiful takes time. the growth is what is the most amazing process – you wake up one day, and see ‘the bloom’. Keep growing… keep watering… keep believing.

Many blessings folks! Sandi
