Ali Armstrong, the beautiful bride from last weekend enjoying a little warmup with some help from her father's dinner jacket. This weekend's wedding takes place outdoors and in tents again, but according to forecasts, some may need parkas by the end of the night. Rain or shine, there is no weather condition that could ever undermine the joy and celebration of the blessed union of two souls in matrimony. May the sun shine in the hearts of all.

The Wishing Tree was just one of the beautiful activities and features at a recent wedding I attended. In keeping with the theme of acknowledging nature and the many beautiful bird
species that we coexist with, the reception tent was a dreamy vision of pastel coloured lanterns and candle lit tables that featured numerous vases of delicate white blossoms.
The bride and groom were especially thoughtful to consider the possibility of sore feet on the dance floor.
Each person's placement was identified with a tea stained vintage tag wrapped around a seed ball to take home to our own backyard birdies.
The collaboration and union of Ali and Eric is off to a brilliant start, and I congratulate them on creating and executing an exquisite event for all. Love, thanks, and warmest wishes.

If you can accept the concept that thoughts carry a vibratory energy,
then the power of a group meditation would exponentially multiply the energetic response if alas, more than a few faithful buddies could discover my blog and read this simultaneously.
Perhaps the reason you are still reading this particular post is to be a part of a promise I made to a dear friend who could really use the support of her fellow human beings to help manifest a resolution. I labelled her cause a "Revelation for River."
Thank you for indulging me this call to action and may all things go smoothly in honour of River. Namaste.
This photo was taken near the continental divide in Colorado on the site of one of the bigger ghost towns in the area.

Just know there's an antidote. It's called having NO thoughts. Ironically it can seem harder than having too many. Also known as meditation, it's simply a skill, which when practiced can become as patterned as the habit of overthinking. Just a thought...

Blumen Garden Bistro, or this abandoned bird bath near the waterfront in Picton, the surroundings incite a state of calm for both mind and body. I posted this image because I remain fascinated by my own instant association with the idea that I had discovered a sacred blessing bowl that was there specifically to remind me of all for which I am grateful. Part of me wonders if there is a Buddhist or ancient native american ritual that includes a beautiful vessel and involves the spirit of nature and the gathering and manifestation of our hopes and dreams. I welcome your version or documentation of such practices. Namaste.

My adorable granddaughter - by marriage - Olivia - Miss O - has just celebrated her 4th birthday!
That's my daughter, Danielle helping out. The celebration continues with my beloved mother's
birthday tomorrow. We're off to Prince Edward County to help her celebrate and enjoy one of
Ontario's most beautiful destinations. A birthday dinner at Harvest and The Claremont Inn and Spa.
I am definitely M I A for the next few days. Family comes first!

What a difference a day makes. With the arrival of summer's last long weekend, a welcomed 25 degree temperature drop and a big north wind have reminded us that fall is in the air.
Borrowing cute rubber stamps from my art buddy,
Colette, reminds me of how much fun it is to give yourself permission just to play.
May your long weekend be safe and memorable!

Meet Fiona. Look into her eyes and capture, if only for a split second, the visual definition of the word 'innocence'.
Other than the completely random name, Fiona, that is the only word that intuitively surfaced
for me when I selected this photo from my collection of adopted vintage people.
