God’s Love Comes in Many Ways to Heal

Grass is amazing. The history of grass is interesting in how it helped civilizations and nature evolve.

 

It became an important way for tilling the land and creating excellent crops. Grass offered food for wildlife and domesticated animals. Grass grew back even when the challenges seemed impossible.

 

I want to introduce you to a poem that comes from the point of […]

These tiny white flowers bloom in Garland Park only when the season is matched to their blooming cycle.

In twenty years I have not seen them in such proliferation. One park ranger showed me a small clump of flowers with the exact same bloom but it was purple. He said,

“This is the first time we have seen this variation of […]

Your Viewpoint and Perspective are Under Your Control

This blog is about perspective.

 

 

As you can see, the first photo is a view of my bench in the distance. The second photo is a nearer perspective. The third photo offers the view.  The fourth reveals the plaque.

Interestingly, […]

This photo looks like a “planted” theme park in that everything looks so inviting and in “perfect” place.

This trail makes you feel like you are walking through an arbor of perfectly planted trees, one after the other… a tunnel of greenery, leaves, limbs, and vines. The beauty is so pristine, […]

Doing What You Love is So Important

It is Spring and I decided to take another photo of what I call “The Artist’s Tree.”

My great uncle Alfred Mitchell, who is well recognized as a Plein Air Painter of California scenery, went back to his favorite locations again and again to paint them in various seasons and lighting.

This is one of the views you see when you exit Garland Park.

While there are several entrances and exits, this view is stunning as you cross over the river below and hear the gurgling waters and the wind in the trees. Carmel Valley Road is only a few hundred feet away. You can hear the traffic. But the sound […]

Wow, what a beautiful day.

The birds are chirping, flying from tree to tree, and the frogs are croaking. This is a perfect place to contemplate, meditate, pray, and put manifesting thoughts forward. Often I get calls from people who feel overwhelmed and they are having difficulty in seeing choices or positive options for their future due to present circumstances.

What a wonderful sight.

The grass is high and flowers are blooming. Everything feels abundant and peaceful. I am hearing a lot about doom and gloom from some people. That the “end” of America is near and hyper inflation is just around the corner. I remember my history teacher talking about doom and gloom in the early seventies when Viet […]

I have walked across this bridge many thousands of times.

Today it is a lovely sunny mid-morning. I have seen cold, rain, hail, fog, blistering heat (112 degrees… though very rarely) and there was the 100 year flood in 1979 in which the bridge was covered with raging water.

While Garland Park doesn’t “change” it evolves. Young saplings that were a […]
