the window and tall grasses

yesterday as i let the horses out into tall grasses, a breeze of perfect balance of warm and cool air came over me. i walked in the fields that have already reached my hips, with thoughts of gathering some wildflowers that have been popping up every where. as i took each step hundreds, thousands perhaps of crickets would jump ahead of me, as if they were walking along side, few even landing on me. i walked for longer than i had planned picking flowers as i went, thinking about where my heart is and how sometimes the beating is so faint and fragile and other times it is bounding so hard, a mix of restlessness and satisfaction.  i see birds bathing in front of me, horses run to stormy clouds, i hear my hearts voice calmed by were it resides. whether it is the power of a thunder storm, the sun brightly lit blue sky or fog that makes everything disappear i am happy here, being happy can also have moments of doubt, fear, and tinted melancholy and even heartache but each one of those feelings are a note and together are the music that is my life.  a life that i am falling in love with full heartedly like that window, when the light hits it just right, it is a song i want to listen to over and over again.

this song is so beautiful, i weeped when i first heard it, i want to live each "word"

It's so important and great falling in love with our lives. I feel like that too now, and my heart is calm and strong.
I like your blog so much for your way of telling yourself and your photos.
Have a great we,
Anna :)

the beauty of this incredible song (thank you thank you thank you, I didn't know it before) is a fitting reflection to the beauty of your own words and images.

It is this window, pictured through the seasons, a constant presence on your site which seems to symbolize to me your life on the hill. This song of your heart, your words, I want to read over and over...touched deeply inside, tears pour over.

I feel it, the beautiful and at times heart-breaking threads of tapestry that is a life. This song, tears too. I must finish the morning chores, in the rain today. I’ll be back to reread this story and perhaps tuck it in my pocket for the company of its faith. Blessings.

This makes me smile. About you, walking with yourself and the crickets and your life. And about the hope of me someday walking in my own life.

Thank you for sharing, Nadia, and for that beautiful song too.

I find that window to be absolutely beautiful, a perfect reflection of how lovely your life is, even with the shadows.

somehow I think we would be good friends...you always put into beautiful words exactly what I feel but can't quite say....

Have a lovely weekend ~

To fall in love with one's life is probably something most of us never embrace. It is an outlook to aspire to and a beautiful way to approach all the notes of the song. Thank you.
