Summer Smiling

Just a simple thank you is always the best prayer...

A garden can be a small pot of basil on your window sill
or a botanical postcard right outside your door.
Be one with nature and be one with you!

Images 17 : Salem Lake, NC

Listen to Coltrane and feel at one with your self.
Sit by a lake and be at peace with your choices.
That's the meaning of happiness, to me.
The knowing that you're on your divine path
and therefore your choices are your familiar friends...


Three months from now, this same space explodes with autumn colors!
But it's still beautiful to see the summer green covering the landscape.
The lake seems to be calling on me to take a dip or maybe a canoe...

And notice the baby blue sky. Nothin' like a Carolina sky!...

Look up. See how beautiful it is up there,
and from there where the ancestors help make a way...

I like looking up at trees. They're art living...

Look down too and notice the details living... 

Could tell you this is a banana tree up in Gonaiives or Madagascar,
but it's an American weed grass that mimics
the Carib and Southeastern Africa... 
The underbelly of a fallen tree...

Either another peace of art living
or there's a squirrel in these parts with mad bite skills!...
I thought this was interesting.
Branches not hanging from their homebase but clinging onto it...

Can't have a lake without ducks...
Can't have ducks without geese...

I like that you don't see the fourth one til your eye makes a left...

Looks like a pelican...

Looks like a pelican hiding in the marshes...
A nobody/somebody til you look up what the Winston-Salem police found
after a quiet canoe row found it first...
Raphael was found drowned off the marshes back in 09.
This after park workers noticed a capsized boat in the middle of the lake.
Raphael was an A&T State U graduate.
Whatever went down and wherever he may be now,
I said a prayer for him...
A pathway to answers...

A roadway to questions...
But in the end, you still come back to you and your own path to walk,
your own purpose to fulfill. If not this time, the next time around
and again and again til you get it right.
I'm getting it right!
