Monday musings…

I like the muted sounds, the
shroud of grey, and the silence
that comes with the fog.
Om Malik

This is the view from my window today.
I love the few foggy days we have here
So calm and beautiful.

In the early afternoon I went for a walk in the fog.
It was chilly but not windy or uncomfortable.
The mist was soft and gentle
Like angels passing by spreading quiet joy.

What is beautiful…

I have a problem with the popular concept of what is beautiful.
If our looks don’t quite conform to what the media
proclaims is beautiful then are we ugly?


Three hands, three generations, three places in life.
A babies hand.
Dimples, smooth, no lines, scars, wrinkles or knots.
Just beginning with a little history, a little story.
A mother’s hand.
Strong, some lines, wrinkles, rough, no dimples.
In the middle with some history, some stories.
A grandmother’s hand.
Soft, knots, bulging veins, wrinkles, and darkened skin.
Near the end with lots of history and stories.

Which hand is beautiful?
Look beyond what your eyes see and look with your heart.
Are they not all beautiful?
