To start the day …. Relaxing to water!!

It Is What It Is


~~August 27, 2014~~ 

It is a well known fact that we can’t live without water. It’s an essential substance to sustain life. 


 Two thirds of the earth’s surface is covered by water The human body consists of 75 percent of it. Evidently water is one of the prime elements responsible for life on earth. Water circulates through the land just as it does through the human body, transporting, dissolving, replenishing nutrients and organic matter, while carrying away waste material.

In the body, it functions are a “regulator” of the activities of fluids, tissues, cells, lymph, blood and glandular secretions.


Yet, we must never forget the role water plays in spirituality and soul renewal. Looking and listening to running water have been proven to release stress and promote relaxation.

A lightning strike only a few miles away lands on the side of a mountain in the Buckeye Hills Regional Park. The lights from the Lewis Prison are on the right. Been trying all year to get a clear shot of a bolt hitting the side of a mountain…mission accomplished!

A City girl's muse

“Promise Yourself”

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,

Elephants – why bother?


Mark Deeble

Elephant baby at waterhole

A few months ago, at a dinner in New York, an aquaintance got into a conversation where a guest asked, “Why all the fuss about elephants – they mean nothing to me personally. Why should I bother whether or not they go extinct?”

The comment, and the attitude it reflected, has concerned me ever since. I don’t know if it was made out ignorance, arrogance, an attempt to provoke, or the desire for genuine knowledge. I prefer to think it is the latter.

So I asked myself, why should they bother? What should elephants mean to someone who has never had the good fortune to meet them?

The scientist in me was the first to answer, for diversity in ecosystems reflects a more vibrant, interesting, and robust life-support system for the planet. Elephants play an important role. They are key-stone species, terrestrial-ecosystem architects, and gardeners without parallel.
