“We were meant to explore this earth like children do, unhindered by fear, propelled by curiosity and a sense of discovery. Allow yourself to see the world through new eyes and know there are amazing adventures here for you.”~ Laurel Bleadon Maffei

“Once something has outlived its usefulness in one area of life, its purpose for being in existence is no longer the same. The leaf that captures a stream of sunlight, and then transfers its energy to the tree, serves one purpose in the spring and summer, and another completely different one through the fall and winter.”~Guy Finley

I’ve been to Big Bend numerous times and each trip has included seeing Santa Elena Canyon. As I stand on the bank of the Rio Grande, I experience a mystical baptism of time. The connection to nature as revealed from the past, present, and future through sound and sight interwoven among the flowing water of the river; it welcomes me home. .

“We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day; and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. We are the seeds of the tenacious plant, and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart that we are given to the wind and are scattered.“~ Kahlil Gibran

You don’t need a time machine to travel back to the old-fashioned soda jerk days, just hop in your car and head to Dublin,Texas! Bottling sodas for over 120 years makes them the oldest bottling facility in Texas. My favorite is the root beer float! .

“I have left almost to the last the magic of water, an element which owing to 
its changefulness of form and mood and colour and to the vast range of its 
effects is ever the principal source of landscape beauty, and has like music 
a mysterious influence over the mind.”~ Sir George Sitwell

“Very often, people are obsessed with what others think of them. It's like if a flower wants to be a cactus or a palm but it's not. A flower is a flower, and that's enough. That's all you have to do is be a flower.”~ Stjepan Hauser

When I took my daughter to Big Bend, it 
created more than just a wonderful memory for me, it solidified a bond with nature.  Our souls share a mutual wanderlust; a sacred spiritual connection to nature. My heart is warmed and honored to be her mother. .

“I had to clear up my messy life. By letting go of the debris and filth, I have come to a deeper, more soulful beauty and clarity like an oasis in the desert. From that place of clarity, a vision of what I could have, what I could do, who I could be has emerged if I allow my heart to become a place of compassion, acceptance and forgiveness.”~ Sharon E. Rainey

“Wild woman are an unexplainable spark of life. They ooze freedom and seek awareness, they belong to nobody but themselves yet give a piece of who they are to everyone they meet. 
If you have met one, hold on to her, she'll allow you into her chaos but she'll also show you her magic.”~ Nikki Rowe

Not sure how your Monday was, but mine was a peachy day!
🍑
🍑
Although I missed the annual Parker County Peach Festival, I stopped at Weatherford Farmers Market and picked up these beautiful peaches! Well, of course I made a peach pie, but I added a little surprise! Sweet and savory desserts are my favorite, so I added some basil and lemon. Result??? Peach Basil Lemon pie! Yummy!!!

“There are always waves on the water. Sometimes they are big, sometimes they are small, and sometimes they are almost imperceptible. The water’s waves are churned up by the winds, which come and go and vary in direction and intensity, just as do the winds of stress and change in our lives, which stir up the waves in our minds.”~
Jon Kabat-Zinn
