how to see?

 We can't improve on nature.

 These August days have given me time to stitch and read. Swim.
 I am not thinking.  I have 'no mind'.
But there is room inside me for this huge August sky.
It IS amazing, isn't it?

This is the first summer that Ned and I have lived at his family cottage nearly full time and although he might not agree, I think that we have both slowed into a dream like rhythm.  I do nothing, yet I work all the time.  Thoughts and ideas rise up.

  3. That is a mighty sky, Judy. Have not seen one as splendid as that myself in many a year. I can only imagine how I might take it all in...'no mind' sounds good, letting it command whatever space it will.
    I have no doubt your stitch is a response.

  4. in such a space, under such immense sky, to do nothing and work all the time, to be of no mind--well that is about the finest condition possible!

  6. Ohhhh and I thought New Mexico had the corner on the sky. A beautiful reminder of the stunning sunsets over the cool lakes of the North. So glad to hear you have this special time to do no-thing and every-thing at the same time.....as time collapses on itself......

  7. I would always find time for a sky like that too, just stunning. Glad you're having a lovely time, doing nothing but seemingly accomplishing so much, pottering does that, lovely rhythm, I miss that.
