Nurture Yourself – with – Natures Beauty

Have you ever been in a room filled with people at an event or a dinner party

or work or simply shopping,

where your eyes were drawn to someone,

somewhere in the room.

It’s because that person’s inner light shining brightly.

We can all be the bright light of spiritual illumination.

Look at the inner light of nature.

Feel it … Wear it … Be it !!!

Namaste,

Isadora 

Namaste
I honor the place in you
in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you
which is of Love, and of Truth,
of Light and of Peace.
When you are in that place in you
and I am in that place in me.
We are One.

Spring Dawn

Every season spills its wonder upon the earth … ©flaviaSpring Dawn

Every flower
of every tomorrow
is a seed well planted
On a Winter’s day

Then, earth awakens
The wonder of another season
bringing colorful flowers
For Spring’s debut

Sunday Song – Havana Nights

Flower Red Crimson Nurture.web

Music touches us all in different ways.

It can heal hearts, calm our fears or create memories when heard.

The announcement was made yesterday, that Cuban dictator Fidel Castro died, November 26, 2016,

His brother, Raul Castro, made the announcement on Cuban television.

His death has created joy in the hearts of those who fled his regime and live in the United States.

The news reports of Cubans cheering in Miami, Florida was everywhere.

Yet, others who are living in Cuba are mourning his loss.

He was 90 years old. He’s ruled Cuba for over 60 years.

And, has outlived 6 of our presidents in the United States.

Whatever your political belief, changes are going to happen.

Who can say if it will be for the good or the bad of the people.

Politically things are shifting and changing everywhere; including here in the United States.

Let’s hope these changes, if and when they happen, are peaceful and of benefit to the people they represent.

Orchid Smiles

Today started with a beautiful gift. 

I’ve been growing this orchid plant for 2 1/2 years.

The green stems on the plant, always look healthy but no flowers.

I’d purchased the plant at a garden sale. There wasn’t a name tag or color listed.flower-yellow-orchid-611-webAs I have a great many purple, lavender, pinky purple and white, I was willing to gamble on what 

color this one was going to be. BUT …. no flowers for 2 1/2 years.

I fertilized. I watered. I placed it in different garden areas for better light.

Nothing ….

Then, this morning, I was given my gift. These glorious yellow and orangey edged blooms.

I love Mother Nature. She never disappoints.

Have an orchid smiles day ….

Sunday Song – Besame Mucho

alexgray_img1[1]

Dawning

The day was at the dawning

The sky was grayish blue

And soon the gay new morning

Would sparkle bright with dew

~~~~~

And in a dreamlike quiet

Skies pierced with the ray of sun

We kissed and in embracing

We were somehow one

Her Sunflower Smile

Flash Fiction FAW - photo-20160125132605717

Nadia was stunned at how well the sunflowers had grown.

As a little child, she watched her grandmother, Oksana, cook traditional Russian meals while recounting tales of her journey to this new land she would eventually call home.

She told Nadia she’d traveled by boat for weeks. It was crowded. They were hungry. She had no belongings. The small amount of sunflower seeds she’d brought to eat were almost gone by the time they’d arrived.

Oksana felt bewildered by the new language, new customs and clothing.

She decided to plant the leftover sunflower seeds as a remembrance of her home left behind.

They grew tall. Bigger than in Russia.

Nadia never forgot her grandmothers love of sunflowers.

She remembered her smile was as big as a sunflower.

Nadia planted sunflowers at her grave.

Nurture Yourself – with the Glow of your Heart

Flowers - January Nurturing Photo.webStanding Tall 2016©Isadora DeLaVega

I wish for you
that unexpected moment of bareness
where the glow of your heart
touches everything it meets
so you can’t help but remember
how dear it is to be alive.
