Our World Within an Alleyway

Alleyways and paths often lead us to the unexpected.

While roaming the countryside a couple of years ago I came across this alleyway, an alleyway I had never experienced before. The occupants had encapsulated their love of sport within the wall on the right hand side. Not only was the rock climbing wall a form of physical fitness, but it also was a form of illumination, brilliantly shining their passion for the sport. And, not only that, but it was all done in green, which is very symbolic of life, new beginnings and nature’s very own color.

Alleyways don’t have to be dark, gloomy or foreboding. They can be areas filled with life, with love of sport and with architectural interest and beauty.

Tuesday Black and White

Shadows and Lines
geometrical forms within the forest
man made from wood…a natural stairway
steps taken to another realm
a journey down…
takes us away to moments of quietude
as we reflect on times past
as tears, smiles and love envelop us
when we trek back up…
the past reflections dwell within
to illuminate us with fond memories
a step away, a heartbeat away
a breath away

Nature’s Calm, Nature’s Wrath

As I strolled around the lake this morning and inhaled its calm, I felt very fortunate. My thoughts turned to those who have already felt the wrath of Hurricane Isaac, and to those who are in the midst of the effects of Hurricane Isaac. My thoughts go out to all of you.

Below is a poem posted on the website Katrina’s Jewish Voices. When you get to the end, you will see the author’s name and age…

HURRICANE KATRINA

Winds are howling; trees are blowing.
Children are scared; lights aren’t glowing.
The next day, the levees broke.
I was sad; some were mad.
Gutters were hanging; swings were clanging.
We had to move and get into a new groove.
We changed to a new school and that was cool.
I couldn’t find my rubber duck; it was in the gross muck.
We had to start new and had a lot of shopping to do.
There’s a lot of traffic;
The pictures on the TV were very graphic.
I have new friends and new shoes.
They helped take away my blues!
Pets are dying; we’re all crying.
Old friends scatter; new friends really do matter!
They make my day and help me find my way!
I have no home or the Superdome.
I got a new jacket and a tennis racquet.
I am a Hurricane Katrina victim/survivor.
I know things will be better.
Katrina is gone, but I’m here living a life.

Tuesday Cascades

I went walking through a local lake over the weekend, and took some photographs of a mini cascade and its splashing water flowing into the lake (not large enough to be called a water falls). The sounds of the water rushing into the lake was music to my soul. Serenity and smiles illuminated within my heart.

A lake carries you into recesses of feeling otherwise impenetrable. William Wordsworth

Good luck and Good work for the happy mountain raindrops,
each one of them a high waterfall in itself, descending from the cliffs
and hollows of the clouds to the cliffs and hollows of the rocks,
out of the sky-thunder into the thunder of the falling rivers.
John Muir

Leisure is a form of silence, not noiselessness. It is the silence of contemplation such as occurs when we let our minds rest on a rosebud, a child at play, a Divine mystery, or a waterfall. Fulton J. Sheen
