* 5 min friday - listen *

Lying on my back in the grass. Staring up at the sky. I don't think about the effects this will have on my hayfever. I am relaxing in the green, eyes at the sky and I get that strange feeling in my tummy again. Just like I did when I was a kid. After awhile I slowly close my eyes and feel my heart beat. Listening to my own thoughts spinning through my mind like mad house. What needs to be done, groceries, cleaning, going to library, did I record my favorite series yesterday? What will I make for dinner this evening? When was that dentist appointment again? Slowly my mind drifts off and slowly goes silent...
The sounds I didn't heard before because I was too busy with my daily thoughts and things-to-do, are drifting around and floating in the air. Cars passing by, kids screaming with fun, neighbours talking, birds chirping, different birds different chirping, bees buzzing.
I can smell the summer air, feel the grass caressing my arms. My hearbeat slows down and I smile..

* Everything has beauty *

Everything has beauty...
It is so true. But how often do we take all the good stuff in life for granted? So often, I would say most of the time. Mostly only when the road is getting more turns and bumbs along the way, you have to say that your life before, you, had everything which is good and beautiful in life.
I am not taking about the big things in life, even though they can and will be important. But what if you life is ordinary? Does it make it less important? Less beautiful?
Most people I guess, tend to think yes. Or at least I find myself thinking that most of the time.
It is high time to stop and think better of your life, yourself, your work, your hobbies. Enjoy life, enjoy the beauty that surrounds you!

* texture tuesday *

This week quick and easy edition. While looking for a good photo to work on I noticed I haven't been out taking shots of scenery or flowers or other stuff just because I love taking those photo's. Time has stopped me from doing so. I really must make time... really....
So for next weekend i will try to plan a mini photoshoot... just because... :)
For now, I took an older picture (few months old :) )
and used it for this week. I used cora, paperstained music, and than some and return.
Too late to upload to TT though....

* 5 min friday - fall *

Fall.... I am in a free fall at this moment. Letting it all go, memories as they come and go. Mesmorized by something silly. Staring out the window, seeing, actually seeing the grass ripple by the hard summer winds that are currently blowing. Squeezing my eyes shut against the vibrant sun, yet still I cannot only feel the suns warmth on my face but also seeping through my eyelashes. It is simply not possible to shut out the sun. No matter how dark you think it is, or you are feeling, the sun will rise again. Just let it all go an float through you like a never ending river. The water will rinse you clean. Clean of the past's negative thoughts. Seeing and feeling my own soul reaching for the surface after falling down deep down in my heart. Yet it's still there. It never was gone. Never completely gone. I can feel my true soul and my self climbing upwards again to meet the sun.

I cannot leave my reaction at thesusanblog (http://thesusanblog.wordpress.com/2013/06/09/five-minute-friday-soon-fall-away/); so here goes:
life is a never ending race of stuff which needs to be done. That is so true and life these days only seems to get faster and faster. Hope you will find the time you need to rejoice in the lord and be close. thanks for sharing your inspirational thoughts.
