Relic – WP Weekly Photo

This week we are asked:
“What images does ‘relic’ conjure for you?”

To me, the word “relic” has a religious connotation.  Unfortunately, I do not have digital photos of such at my finger tips … so I have chosen a photo from the oldest site with digital photographic record of such visit – The San Gervasio Mayan Ruins.   I captured several “Sunday Tree” and archeological photographs during our stop-over trip to the island of Cozumel, Mexico (via cruise).  The San Gervasio Mayan Ruins, in the middle of island, provided a plethora of choices.  Although I have featured several of the trees, the Ruins were mesmerizing as well.  Since I have not featured much of the ruins … here you go:

Nurturing Thurs – Envision

Who do you envision yourself to be?
What kind of seed is in you?

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

In this amazingly competitive society of ours, how many of us truly feel good about ourselves? How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we would a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

Our culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves. Yet, it is not possible for all of us to be above average at the same time. Don’t we usually know of someone richer, more attractive, “more together” or successful than we are? Even if we discount the material aspects and consider the more spiritual facet, don’t we know of those who seem more at peace, more aware or living in the moment. Even when we do manage to feel a strong sense of self-esteem or self-confidence, we are not able to consistently hold on to it. For most, our sense of self-worth bounces around like a ping-pong ball, rising and falling strongly tied with our latest success or failure.

In an effort to eliminate labeling ourselves as “good” or “bad”, and clearly accept ourselves with an open heart … to treat ourselves with the same kindness, caring, and compassion we would show to a good friend … I would like to incorporate more self-compassion and self-kindess in my life.

To “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy” … I am dubbing Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday … a spin-off of the suspended Occupy Blogosphere started by Amy of SoulDipper.

If any of my readers are interested in joining the nurturing, I applaud and welcome you to do so … the more the merrier!!

Summer Snow – Small Stone


Small Stone 2014
Midafternoon thunderstorm
Rumblings herald its arrival
Outside darkened bedroom window
Crepe myrtle petals
Falling like snow
in
90 degree weather

What are small stones?

A small stone is a short piece of writing (any style) that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment for you. The process of discovering small stones is as significant as the finished creation. Searching for small stones encourages you to keep your senses on the “alive and alert” status. Involve yourself with a new set of eyes, ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind. In short … OPEN, OPEN, OPEN!
