today is cooler somewhat here, but in this room, looking out at the trees beyond this window, i dream of beautiful gardens and lovely lakes, birds flying above and flowers blooming everywhere. my spirit seems to always be drawn to beautiful green and lovely places. my soul is mystified by the deserty areas that are barren and lonely. they seem as if a people had once inhabited them, but then to suddenly depart and leave behind them their lonely spirits, for land that is dry and barren always feels desperate to me, lonely and forlorne. i always feel like walking about, flayling flower seeds everywhere and praying for abundant rain for this poor, destitute soil, crying out for a green and lovely life. how much of this earth we live on is this way.....abandoned and alone and waiting. if only we could grow beautiful things on it once again and bring back it's spirit.
it reminds me of the film by the french director. i cannot unfortunately remember his name. it is called...."the man who planted trees". what hope and brightness he restored back to this land.....filling it, after a time, with beauty and people and laughter and life once again. that film is truely beautiful and inspiring. i wish i could find a copy of it to own for myself. i would watch it over and over again. it is so beautifully made. does anyone know where i might find a copy to buy??
utah is very beautiful in it's own way, but the sun shines so hot here, my soul seems to melt away and cry out for water and ferns and towering green, majestic trees. this is not a climate and a land i am accostomed to, nor able to adapt to very easily. but for now, i am trying to see the possibilities here and feel the beauty that is here.
have fun today.....hope you can do something truely extraordinary and different today to wake up your spirit!!!
