Dreams of the Sea

100_1618

Small boats, and some with sails, never let go

of their dreams for freedom, looking for the next horizon

to capture the wind and to send us,

farther than we dreamed.

The Wind in the Willows

20160418_122220

As the wind moves through the willow trees there is a redemption,

a washing of our minds and souls, as the leaves move gently

fluttering, speaking peace and calmness – and we realize,

there is no reason to worry, it’s time now

to let go, and to be lifted up.

The Day of Rest

100_1295

And when the Creator saw everything that He had made, He saw that it was good. In fact, He saw that it was very good indeed. And this included the people created.

And the Creator rested from all His labors. This is how the Sabbath was made, a day to bring us freedom from working too much.

May you be rested and refreshed, whichever day you choose to be free from work.

I wish you peace.

“Where liberty dwells, there is my country.”

Ben Franklin

Happy 4th of July everyone! As America celebrates its freedom and independence, may we continue to work for freedom and peace, in our world. Ben Franklin was right, we should all live in a place, where liberty dwells.

Have a great week creating, and making our world a more beautiful place!

When Horses Dream

20160606_150047

When horses dream they do not dream, about revenge against humans

never counting the wrongs suffered, or the pain of bridles, and bits.

But they do dream of running in open fields, without fences

hearts racing and teaching their young,

to live free.

The Archangel

As the Dark Knights pushed their way through the white clouds, the Swordsman looked up, and knew it would take more than a Swordsman to defeat them. He instantly raised his sword high as a beacon, calling for the Command Center to send extra help. His sword turned to fire and crackled with electricity, sending the signal heavenward.

As the Dark Knights saw him, they headed down in his direction. He saw each one had a name, an unholy name written on them. He saw, fear, despair, anger, violence, racism and many others.

Suddenly the sky exploded with a cracking sound, and lightning split it open. The singing of many choirs descended, and through the opening there was one single being, dressed in gold and white. He had long hair, and was carrying a sword and a golden shield.

The Swordsman ducked next to some large rocks, realizing the power of this being. The Archangel would make quick work of the Dark Knights. Without a word, the Archangel simply pointed his sword, and there was a crashing bolt of lightning, that split into a hundred different directions. And it was over that quick.

The people of the town saw and heard nothing, for this was a spiritual fight, in another dimension. But many smelled a burning smell they could not explain, and a few saw a strange dust in the air.

And the Swordsman just smiled and sheathed his sword, thinking this was yet another great victory against the forces that hated humanity. And why were the Dark Knights attacking?

The Swordsman had just freed a 14 year old, from an overdose…….of heroin…….

Friday Night Culture – Riding the Wind

Gypsy Vanner

There is something so beautiful about the power and grace of horses running. Wild horses are spectacular, but some of my favorite movies are about horses racing.

The Black Stallion has some amazing moments, throughout the movie. A boy and the Black Stallion are marooned on an island after being shipwrecked there. I love how the movie has the boy and horse developing a friendship together. The cinematography in this film is spectacular. I have chosen the final race to share. At first the boy attempts to hold the horse back because he is injured entering the gate, but then they start flying.

I have also chosen two clips about Secretariat, which was probably the greatest race horse ever. The first clip is from the movie. I like seeing the disbelief and amazement on the faces of the people watching him win the Triple Crown in 1973. This is the Hollywood version.

I have also chosen to share the actual race, filmed in 1973, of the actual horse! Watch how he pulls away!

Horses are amazing and inspiring animals! Have a great weekend!
