Gueeeesssss who’s not done with winter, yet?? Spring, g’head and take a nap, because winter is out like a bear and here with another big roar tomorrow night.

Having serious creative block with words these days, so I’m digging up an old #butterflyfiction poem. . I hope you don’t remember it, but then again, I hope you do. 😝 . ————- . Take my hand And we will bathe in the river We will wash in the wisdom Of what flows infinitely Come sit on the grass with me And we will watch the tides And hear the music of life That babbles and dances in currents Be still with me as the world revolves And changes, as do we Lay your roots deep And sprout your blossoms And I will tend to your garden . ————— . #wherelumixgoes #withmytamron . . . . #illegalvisuals #rediscovertheearth #exceptional_pictures #theweekoninstagram #royalsnappingartists #yourshotphotographer #ig_namaste #global_ladies #snaps_standard #orbearth #feature_the_best #rsa_ladies #theamericancollective #folkgreen #natureromantix #tree_brilliance #rsa_rural_

If you don’t like the way things look, change the way you’re looking at them. .

“When you see something beautiful in someone, tell them. It may take a second to say, but for them, it could last a lifetime.” . I’ve always loved this theory and it always, always feels amazing to lift someone up and see them smile. . When I was young and a VERY awkward early teen (seriously, I hadn’t grown to 5’7”, yet, and at 5’0”, I had full length legs — 33” inseam, to be precise. To make matters worse, my feet were a full size 8 1/2 then, too. I was a giant capital “L”. 😂😂), I pinned a little clipping from “Teen” magazine on the wall next to my bed. And it said, “Someone thinks I’m pretty. so I am.” It was paired with this sweet little illustration of a girl smiling timidly. I didn’t hear it a lot in those days, but at least one person said it (other than my parents). And I got to wear that timid, hopeful smile. . #wherelumixgoes #withmytamron . . . . . #illegalvisuals #exceptional_pictures #theweekoninstagram #royalsnappingartists #thevisionaryhub #the_gallery_of_magic #yourshotphotographer #orbearth #freedomthinkers #theimaged #ig_namaste #global_ladies #artofvisuals #girlscreating #folkcreative #folkgood #visualquest #snaps_standard #feature_the_best #rsa_ladies #naturecasino #tree_brilliance #radgirlslife #optoutside #rsa_fog

The Universe is under no obligation to make sense to you. . I’m one of those people who was always trying to make sense of things. I still am, in many respects. I still try to understand choices I’ve made and selfish inclinations. Sometimes, it takes years to have a sharp enough focus on that lens. . But of the bigger things — the ones over which I have no control (someone I care about being sick, for instance), I’ve become much less of an analyst and more of a truster. God, Buddha, Allah, the Universe, any good power you believe in — has got a plan that works, and that, with the faith we claim is at the center of our souls, has an intention that will make sense to us at some point. . And even if it doesn’t, if you claim you’ve got faith, put it into action, because none of it may ever make sense to us. I believe faith means you trust in the most powerful outcome, regardless. . #wherelumixgoes . . . . . #illegalvisuals #rediscovertheearth #exceptional_pictures #theweekoninstagram #royalsnappingartists #the_gallery_of_magic #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #theimaged #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #visualquest #theIMAGED #joysofearth #snaps_standard #orbearth #feature_the_best #rsa_ladies #theamericancollective #folkgreen #natureromantix #naturecasino #tree_brilliance #ourplanetdaily #keepitwild #inspiredbynature #rsa_fog

“Sometimes we love with nothing more than hope. Sometimes we cry with everything except tears. In the end that’s all there is: love and its duty, sorrow and its truth.

In honor of the 2 day warm fluke the last couple of days and the ensuing returning winter (not the metaphoric kind!), a memory of our idea of a perfect vacation … an isolated beach in Montauk with our girls with the dreamy scent of honeysuckle and wild roses. . #shotoniphone . . . . #illegalvisuals #exceptional_pictures #theweekoninstagram #royalsnappingartists #snapwire #freedomthinkers #theimaged #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #folkcreative #folkgood #royalsnappingartists #thevisionaryhub #freedomthinkers #ig_namaste #consciousadventurist #outdoorwomen #optoutside #radgirlslife #lifehappensoutdoors #itsamazingoutthere #passionpassport #amazingtravelbeauty #thetravelwomen #topnewyorkphoto #new_york_shots #unlimitednewyork #iloveny at Montauk End Of The World

Anyone interested in joining me? (Read below) . Eat, pray, love — Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday have fallen on the same day. Sooo ... Happy indulgent lovins and happy self-denial! 😬😂💞 . This has thrown many Catholics into a theoretical tizzy (just wait until April Fool’s Day & Easter have a mashup in a few weeks 😂)! . In order to marry the 2 concepts, does anyone (of any faith or non-faith) want to join me in a . ✨🎈✨Random Act of Kindness Day✨🎈✨ . The only requirement is to do 1️⃣ kind thing for someone (not of your household) and come back and tell us about it. Even if you see this post next week, join in creating a giant ripple! .

Admit it. You’re not like others. And that’s not just okay, it’s fkg beautiful. And if you’re too much of anything for some people, They’re just not your people. . It’s okay to cut ties with someone who won’t go the distance for you or with you. Make no apologies for wanting to surround yourself with only those who believe in you. . (A mixture of my words and an anonymous quote I edited and added to, to make my point) . . . . #shotoniphone #theweekoninstagram #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #royalsnappingartists #theamericancollective #thevisionaryhub #dofnature #folkscenery #folkgreen #the_gallery_of_magic #rsa_fog #outdoorwomen #naturalnewengland #naturalconnecticut #natureromantix #outside_project #hikingculture #hiking_hobby #hikerlist #optoutside #shotoniphone #youmobile #adventureon at Pootatuck State Forest

I believe one of the keys to unlocking happiness is to keep the wisdom and positive memories from our past, but to secure that door shut and to open a new one onto something new to look forward to. . What are you looking forward to?? . I’m reeeeally looking forward to visiting our daughter in Italy 🇮🇹 in April with my parents and brothers to celebrate my parents’ 80th birthdays and my husband’s big 5-0. I know this will be a very special trip! 💕👫👭👫👫👭👬💕 . #whereLUMIXgoes . . . . . #theweekoninstagram #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #royalsnappingartists #theamericancollective #thevisionaryhub #snapwire #dofnature #folkscenery #folkgreen #the_gallery_of_magic #galleryoflightfeature #natureromantix #outside_project #optoutside #natgeoyourshot #illegalvisuals #yourshotphotographer #dofnature

Remember, there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end. — Scott Adams . We never know how our actions to strangers will affect their day and the people they encounter and, in like manner, the day and relationships of those people, and so on, and so on. . So let’s make every contact in kindness and with a smile. We never know whose day we will make ... or break. 💖 . And 🎈HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🎈 to my dear friend, @missesthe90s, whose kindness and friendship over the last 5 years has definitely rippled in my life. Make your day the bestest one, yet, Roger! Get spoiled rotten and eat lotsa cake!! 🎂 . #iroamiceland @ilovetoroam . . . . . #theweekoninstagram #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #royalsnappingartists #theamericancollective #thevisionaryhub #snapwire #dofnature #folkscenery #folkgreen #the_gallery_of_magic #rsa_fog #galleryoflightfeature #outside_project #optoutside #natgeoyourshot #illegalvisuals #yourshotphotographer #orbearth #adventureon #topnewyorkphoto #wildnewyork #new_york_shots #unlimitednewyork #iloveny at Millerton, New York

Photography keeps me present. It preserves that shutter burst of time, but also, in that particular moment, I am truly there and nowhere else. Photography has always kept me practicing being in the moment like nothing else ever has. . #whereLUMIXgoes . . . . . #theweekoninstagram #ig_namaste #global_ladies #wow_america #girlscreating #feature_the_best #royalsnappingartists #theamericancollective #thevisionaryhub #snapwire #dofnature #the_gallery_of_magic #outdoorwomen #galleryoflightfeature #naturalnewengland #naturalconnecticut #natureromantix #outside_project #optoutside #illegalvisuals #yourshotphotographer at Connecticut
