Windows 2

This is my second entry to the Weekly Photo Challenge; Windows. (See the first entry here.) I like how the trees frame the rock formations of Castle Crags in the first photo. Like a natural frame. I wouldn’t mind having that view from my window! How would you like it? Imagine waking up with brown bears as your closest neighbor. I know the thought might be scary for some people, to me, it’s very appealing. I don’t have that view from my window, but I am blessed to live rather close to this amazing State Park.

I go here at least once a year. I spent a day here this past weekend. It makes me feel so good! The fresh scent of cedar and pines, the wild country, the blue sky, and the rough landscape. Can you feel it?

Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.

I was thinking about going to a country music festival this past weekend. A few weeks ago I was asked if I could work. I love my work, so of course I said yes. It turned out I didn’t have to work after all. I hadn’t made any arrangement to go to the festival, since I was supposed to work. I had an awesome weekend at this magical place, and didn’t even  send one thought to the concert I missed out on. Imagine my shock when I wake up Monday morning and open my laptop, and read about the mass shooting! I could of been there. There’s no words for how grateful and incredibly thankful I felt at that moment.

When nature turns extraordinary, your heart turns humble. You simply bow before the glory.

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. Above everything else is my daughter. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria

  1. I’m so glad you wasn’t at that concert. But all those poor people.
    Sometimes it’s good to get out in the countryside and wild places, just get away from all of the madness.
