A Visitor To My Window Ledge . . .

 "How do I integrate spirituality into my everyday life? Throw out the concept of “spiritual life” and “everyday life.” There is only life, undivided and whole." - Adyashanti 

There are those of you that may remember Sammy's previous encounter with a squirrel visitor. (If you didn't see it at the time the pictures are well worth a visit.)

Well this week, the squirrel visitor to my garden found the bird table empty. . . 

 Sammy had him spotted!

And after finding no treats in the garden, the squirrel came to the window to let me know!


 He was a lovely little fella!

 ...and totally unphased by me taking photos on the other side of the window.


  (This was another time when my photos would have been better if my windows had been clean. :-))

“Paradise is not a place but a condition,
 a simple being-alive, a drinking straight from the spring.”
- Scott Russell Sanders

I went out and stocked up the bird table after he had gone. :-)

I hope you've all had a good week.

Thought of the week
"Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. 
Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. 
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… 
Anything can happen, child. Anything can be." 
-  Shel Silverstein

Winter Walking - and the thoughts it brings . . .

Yesterday, we went for a walk around the village and I picked up my camera for the first time in ages. And in the crisp cold air of a new December, I realised how much I had missed sharing things here. So tentatively, slowly, I am venturing back into this space...

 "Whatever it is that pulls the pin, that hurls you past the boundaries of your own life into a brief and total beauty, even for a moment, it is enough."  -  Jeanette Winterson

I hope all is well in your world.

Someone who knew diamonds picked it up." - Kabir

And the sun shone on my garden . . .

“Springtime is at hand. When will you ever bloom, if not here and now?” - Angelus Silesius

“There is no goal of life. Life itself is its goal.
It is not moving towards some target. It is here now.” - Osho

"I choose to enjoy living the great mystery."
- Tao Te Ching

And because Sammy has been featured here so often lately,
I thought we were about due for a picture of his sister.
. . . So here is the beautiful Bina enjoying the sunlight.

And this week on my fridge. . .

I hope you have had a wonderful week.
