There are few moments when the sun, the trees, and the clouds line up just right…and when your hand is steady, and there are no other cars driving in your view. Those moments when you can capture something, and you know it is a fleeting moment…
Sunsets especially make me almost sad, to know that within minutes the light will be gone, and I will witness another death. No two moments are ever alike, or will ever be repeated…so this fragment of time is gone, forever…except in the eye of beholder.

Nice post on the art of kissing. I think the writer nailed it, perfectly.
The Art of Kissing.

This little guy hopped off a magnolia flower onto my lap. All I saw was a glint of metallic green! Then I was scrambling to find him, because I had just gotten in my car after lunch and it was hot in there. Not to mention, there is no food or water in my car either.
Well, after poking around searching for him, he jumped onto my hand, and I very carefully opened the door and walked over to the planter nearest to my car. He didn’t want to leave! I had to coax him off my hand onto a nice, cool, green plant.
I dread killing any sort of insect these days, but I have a special reverence for spiders in particular. This little guy was no exception. Isn’t he gorgeous?

The health and longevity of these people is incredible…take a read. Clean, pure water and organic food, combined with plenty of activity. They also consider apricots a staple, and even ground the kernel of the seed for use as oil, lotion, etc.

If the Earth
were only a few feet in diameter,
floating a few feet above a field somewhere,
people would come from everywhere to marvel
at it. People would walk around it marveling at its
big pools of water, its little pools and the water flowing
between. People would marvel at the bumps on it and the
holes in it. They would marvel at the very thin layer of gas
surrounding it and the water suspended in the gas. The people
would marvel at all the creatures walking around the surface of
the ball and at the creatures in the water. The people would
declare it as sacred because it was the only one, and they would
protect it so that it would not be hurt. The ball would be the
greatest wonder known, and people would come to pray to
it, to be healed, to gain knowledge, to know beauty and
to wonder how it could be. People would love it, and
defend it with their lives because they would
somehow know that their lives could be
nothing without it. If the Earth were
only a few feet in

she was the apple
of many an eye
a bright light
that always reached high
she took it all in
without a worry or a care
never knowing limits
she could never be scared
till one day she fell
under a very dark spell
and try as she might
she could no longer fight
her soul was bruised
and the world too heavy to bear
so she laid down her head
and breathed her last breath
