Don’t need to go too far to locate my best self.

Thee Great Outdoors1

These are the thoughts that came to me after painting this picture yesterday.

When I spend any time with nature, (even imaginary nature), I begin to see the current of life hidden within everything.  I begin to feel about my life in a different way — everything I focus upon appears special and I am an integral partner. Through this attentive attitude I am at peace.  I am satisfied.  I experience all that is good and happy.  In the quiet of nature, I feel connected to every fabric of my being, every molecule, every thought, every tiny speck; in other words, in all of me.

I love coming back to these quiet times.
