It is not easy to recover………from just about anything. My recent recovery time was spent Being Present to the beautiful world around me. This is my very favorite time of year as the hummingbirds and butterflies make their fall migration through our area. Even though I had the camera in hand, I learned that just observing and being present amongst the miracles around me, gives a sense of hope and wonder. I put the camera aside and have spent many an hour just concentrating on Being Present and knowing that healing would come if I just absorbed the beauty around me, and gave Thanks. This little fellow remains in my garden even today. …my little healing Hummingbird.

    I know, they’re starting to pack their bags here in NC. Of course you get to enjoy their presence a bit longer where you are. I’m jealous. Absolutely a gorgeous work Carolyn.

  • Thank you Jim. And, I’ll tell your hummers hello when they get here.
