These are excellent rules for living! I've always done that with feathers--picked them up and saved them as I go along. LOVE how you're using he bracelet. :o) Congrats to Kate and Kim on the win. Thank you for the fun, Elk... Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

My husband would always pick up the feather but neither of us embrace the early morning sun with joy.

I'll keep in mind these rules. Maybe it'll help me someday. You've got nothing to lose if you follow these. Right? audience response system

The photo of the sun and the wires is incredible! As well as the act of picking up a feather. But when you have the eyes and the soul of a poet you can transform each act into a magical ritual.

Marcie said...

Beautiful! Such important words to live by. Especially - rise early!!!

I haven't been visiting blogs this summer and just wanted to pop in and say hi! I always pick up feathers too:)

Jennifer Richardson said...

I just came around again
to wade in the water
of your peaceful space
....it touches me each
time in an easy and comforting way.
thanks for making such
a special space
to rest and relax:)
I hope wonderful things
find you as your school year
begins,
Jennifer

Always such good advice :). I think I have a broken necklace or two that need a new look...

Duhhh what a good tip to give old stuff a new change.
And feathers...got tons of them. I always do what you do.

Christine said...

I love the wire weaving through the sun :)

elizabeth said...

I often do! (Pick up the feather, that is.) I have one that doesn't look real, it's so fluorescent in color.

Tracy said...

Been missing you, so just wanted to come by for your special mix of magic here. And let you know you're in my thoughts today. Good to catch up with you! I've been offline a few days having some fun, just now surfacing! :o) Happy Weekend, dear Elk ((HUGS))

Just wondering where you've been and if all is okay. I saw on your facebook page that there are some health issues. I'm saying a prayer for you and your family now.
