It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Peace and Quiet

Sitting here listening to the sounds of traffic, I wish I had the ability that belonged to the witch in Bewitched ( Elizabeth Montgomery) .. she twitched her nose and Magic happened.
I would wiggle my nose and pop into the Portland Oregon Japanese Gardens for a few hours of peace and quiet.
Cool peace and quiet.
But for now.. nose twitching isn't getting me anywhere, so I will throw myself into the shower and take leave of this place for the day.
When I come back this evening, we will discuss the happenings of the day and see if anything has improved.
Wishing you Peace and Quiet wherever you are ~

Hmmm! I'm beginning to wish you could do magic with the twitch of your nose too.

Maybe you could whisk me off to warmer climes.

We have a lovely Japanese Garden's here in Seattle the Arboretum...also very deserving of a bit of nose twitching if you're inclined to see two in one day.
