It never ceases to amaze me that there are so many kindred spirits here on WordPress and within the social networking hub; numerous gifted individuals sharing their beautiful art forms, or their uplifting words or inspirational experiences. Such beauty cannot fail to uplift our world.
I’m not a brilliant writer, neither am I a professional photographer, but when I woke in the early hours of yesterday morning, a quote came into my head:
“Use what talent you possess.
The woods would be very quiet
if no birds sang except those that sang best.”
Henry Van Dyke
And so, from now on, my work will be my Legacy of Beauty, Peace, Hope and Love for our world. It is an unconditional gift from my heart, copyright free, and you may freely share it if you wish.
I truly believe that what we focus on grows. With more and more of us focusing on beauty, peace, hope and love – what a difference this is making to humankind, even if we cant yet see the visible evidence.
We are earth pilgrims, travelling the road of life, shining our Light to illuminate the dark spaces. And we SHALL overcome, for Light always overcomes darkness.
Thank you all for sharing your passions and creativity. You are an inspiration for me. Have the most wonderful SUN-DAY.
“Happiness, not in another place, but in this place…
not for another hour, but for this hour.”
What a beautiful place is Llyn Brenig. Situated in the unspoilt countryside of the Denbigh Moors, on the border between the counties of Conwy and Denbighshire, it is one of the largest lakes in Wales.
There are nature trails, archaeological trails, picnic areas, water sports, a visitor centre, an exhibition telling the story of Llyn Brenig and its archaeological history, and a restaurant with good food and great views from the terrace.

Walking in nature brings me into the present moment. I have no thoughts of past or future, no worries or anxieties. I slip into a state of mindfulness, fully present in the moment. I become aware of my surroundings. Everything seems bright and beautiful and so alive. I sit on a bench and immerse myself in this awesome place.
I feel the earth beneath my feet and I kneel to observe more closely the profusion of wild flowers growing in the woods. I watch as they lift up their pretty heads to the sun, sighing in sweet ecstasy. I sigh too. Their simple pleasure is contagious.
I have come to love this solitude and communion with nature. My heart sings and my spirit dances with delight. I am alittle child again.
“Keep close to Nature’s heart…
and break clear away, once in a while,
and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.
Wash your spirit clean.”
