The Wooded Path

by Suzie on November 17, 2017

When I was a little girl my Dad would take me with him to walk the wooded path along the river not far from our home. He’d walk along quietly with me a few steps behind only to stop to help me over or up a fallen branch or a small incline. I don’t remember us ever speaking, he’d just turn around and hold out his hand. These walks have been held in my memory all my life as the dearest connection I have to him. He gave me the gift of loving nature in all its profound peace and glory. Being in the woods is like coming home to me. It always feels welcoming and revives my senses with the pungent fragrance of trees and earth, the sounds of chirps, trills and peeps, the soft warmth or biting breeze against my skin and the myriad of tints and shades of color all around. To me, walking in the woods is to be in the presence of the Divine.

Find your place with nature and it will reward you profoundly. Blessings to you all!

God, or the gods, are invisible, quite understandable. But holiness is visible, entirely. – Mary Oliver

Thinking in Pictures

by Suzie March 7, 2013

I like to see people’s stories. Oh, I like to hear them, too, but if I can see the images that are in their hearts, the ones that make them who they are, then who they need to be is right there in front of them. My story is above in the header of this […]
