I’ve reached a point in my life where it’s the little things that matter… I was always a rebel and probably could have got much farther had I changed my attitude. But when you think about it, I got pretty far without changing attitudes. I’m happier with that.

new mexico morning:hollyhocks.jpgI was going to write about something else this morning but the morning light is so beautiful, making rainbows everywhere…sometimes I think that having a lot of money and possessions prevent one from appreciating the small things, at least that has been true in my life.  So I’m just putting up a few of my photos from here..and quotes I like about nature, about pets..about Life…


“Everything that slows us down and forces patience……


everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature is a help..

Gardening is an instrument of grace.”

~May Sarton


“For any writer who wants to keep a journal, be alive to everything, not just to what you’re feeling, but also to your pets, to flowers, to what you’re reading.”

corgissnow“You should see my corgis at sunset in the snow. It’s their finest hour. About five o’clock they glow like copper. Then they come in and lie in front of the fire like a string of sausages.”

~Tasha Tudor from The Private World of Tasha Tudor

“I enjoy solitude. It’s probably selfish, but why bother about it. Life is much too important, as Oscar Wilde said, to be taken seriously….


sunrise sept 1 '16 ….I feel so sorry for those mothers who are devastated by loneliness when their children fly the coop and don’t want to live at home anymore. They feel lost, but look what exciting things can be done.…..

~Tasha Tudor from The Private World of Tasha Tudor





 “When I’m working in the barn or house I often think of all the errors I’ve made in my life.


 …But then I quickly put that behind me and think of water lilies. They will always eradicate unpleasant thoughts. Or goslings are equally comforting in their own way.”
~Tasha Tudor from The Private World of Tasha Tudor

When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else……

bright-pink-daisies …Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.

~Georgia O’Keeffe


Life isn’t long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege to be alive. In spite of all the pollution and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
