In mathematics the center is a point within any round object keeping the object circumference evenly space. As for the human, the heart it’s referred as the center of who we are, yet it’s on our right side, guarded by our chest.
As the center of a circle, our hearts keeps us well balance as it pumps life to every cell of our body, giving life.
Life also exist in the center of all creatures, even the ones at the bottom of the deep blue sea.
The Ocean, which has always given me a since of roundness, for water brings life, yet water drowns life, it reveals the circle of life in different species.
Anemones, which have unique shapes, beautiful neon-colors and rubbery, slippery texture captivate the imagination.
Sea life is an example of how once light shines on them, light returns from within each being revealing their unique color or colors and design.
A message is clear. Be aware where you stick around for one never knows what kind of light may shine out of us. Let’s hope, our natural illuminating radiance be the one to be seen by those we encounter in our lifetime.
In our effort, let’s be as well-rounded as we humanly can by being golden with our words and actions. Allow goodness to radiate beautiful colors from our a caring heart as the sea creatures have demonstrated for the world to see.

Lines which point up, unless they fall.
🍂CLOSE AND PERSONAL🍂
The snow will melt
The leaf will blow
The new buds will grow
I must ask,
will occur in me?
Are you ready to
Let go and mature?
🍂CLOSE & PERSONAL🍂
Captured by the wind of doubt leaves one stuck between timidity and distrust.
Get close and see, not the leaf; but yourself. You have much to offer where you exist.
Much like these stuck leafs, they’re a piece of art to be admired – where they’ve landed.
🍂CLOSE & PERSONAL🍂
Our ins and outs
Ups and downs
Seen and unseen
All in all
Right side or reverse
It’s what makes us
Let’s be grateful
Instead of shameful
Good or bad
Nature is prolific, take time to observe, listen and learn.
One must cross the immensity ocean of uncertainty, before they climb the summits in their lives.
Sometimes the mounts right before us are piles made from clearing a way to move forward. Let’s not treat them as barriers.
Before distractions bloom, we should take a good look at what’s before us. Let’s not overlook the fact that, we just might be able to move right or left to avoid the distraction all together. Yes, it could be that simple.
Day’s duty flees aspiration. Sunset diminishes failure. Moments reflect past lessons. Faith restores tomorrow’s hope. Night gives a soul much-needed restoration.
A chilling wind called my name as it gently swayed the golden grass.
My soul drifted to the grassy side while my body stood on an icy road.
In no time, my body joined my soul and I whispered, “Alaska, why do you try to steal my soul? I’m already yours.”
BACK ON MARCH 30 – It was a beautiful sunny day in Anchorage, Alaska and all I wanted was to feel the sun’s warmth as the chilled air-cooled my face.
Believe me, on this day, this trail was busy with walkers, bikers and cross-country skiers. Oh, I almost forgot, also man’s best friend, doggies. It was safe, yet I remain alert.The peace and tranquility in the Alaska’s outdoors is addicting. I can’t ever get enough. On this day, I couldn’t wait to find a place to lose myself in. Mentally speaking.
The beauty this trail revealed created bubbles of happiness inside me. If I could have, I would have giggled as I twirled. I would have spun until the ground would have become unstable.
But, I didn’t.
I did feel drunk from the purest blue sky, that I thought I heard the spread out tree arms clap faster and faster as if to encourage me to go ahead spin and set my soul free.
Even though I only imagined, my soul did become filled with glee from the glimmering snow. I felt very much like a child as I roamed, photograph and dreamed by myself, but never once did I feel alone.
I hope you enjoyed this place like I did.
I’m not sure why tree trunks have captivated me recently.
Maybe, because of their glistening colors at sunset.
Or maybe, they impress me on how they endured the harsh winter weather.
What they needed to lose, their outer skin, and weak branches, were for them to be able to expand and grow.
Besides the fallen branches were not strong enough to endure the snow, ice and winds.
Hum . . . maybe that’s why I experience losses this past season of life.
I need to let go and grow.
Well, I’m ready to expand my horizon and shine with a smile when the sunsets come.
With God’s help, I will carry on.
IN GOD’S HANDS
Solitude hears the heart
Cry without a voice
Pain released lifts the soul
Blessed Healing returns
Clarity and thought regained
Time to breath and move on
When snow cuddle and stay on limbs and leaves, it accents and contrast shapes and colors sending an overwhelming feeling of wonder over me,
The definition created by the snow on the tree below enchanted me like a painting in a museum. It’s beauty held me hostage in the freezing cold for a while as I study the detail of its fan out branches. Finally I took photos and when on my walk.
Snakes of snow rested against the limbs highlighting the path each limb took making me chose which branch my eyes were going to follow.
Tiny, tiny dots against the white snowy sky, pulled my soul high, that I felt myself leave the grown. Suddenly, a heavenly scent of cleanliness came over me as snow gently landed over me.
Like cradles, leafs and twigs collected clusters of snowflakes. They twinkle as they were held. As if the leaves or the twigs were too afraid for the snow to fall, they seemed frozen in their position.
Branches spread in many different paths towards the sky caused me to fluster with confusion on which path to follow. But, when I looked down towards the tree’s trunk I remembered, they all aimed like their trunk, up. I felt peace and assurance that there is truly only one way to reach the heavens above.
Trees and leaves represents many aspects of living life, but they also serve to remind us of a life in a much a waited paradise, heaven on earth.
Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge ~ Leaves or Trees
Daily prompt ~ Branch
When evening enters
A majestic view
Not one sound it makes
While the scene becomes blue
Colors become darker
And the air much colder
Reminding night approaches
Behind one’s shoulder
The coat is zipped
and a sigh is released
For the tranquil blue
whispers, it’s time to leave
