TBT – Mirror

12.15.14.shadowglam2

I don’t remember where I purchased this mirror, and it doesn’t matter, but when I saw it, I had to have it. I love the retro look of it and her dragonfly wings. One day I noticed the reflection on the wall of the glass flowers on my nightstand. Just had to take the shot!

The dragonfly is often seen around water, ponds or on the edge of a river or lake. It symbolizes the affinity with the realm of feelings, water being a powerful symbol for emotions and the unconscious. If the spirit of the dragonfly comes to you, you may be called to explore your emotions in a light and joyful manner.

When we were in Arizona, there was a red dragonfly that I saw several mornings in a row that landed on the gate by the pool. It was an amazing creature to watch and it let me get close enough to photograph it. Thank you!

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes

So much going on today; so many feelings and emotions.  Maybe it’s the Summer Solstice, but let’s just take a moment to send light and love from our hearts to the hearts of all other beings on our beloved planet.  That’s it – close your eyes and beam love out for just 10 seconds.  Thanks!

The weekly photo challenge is pretty appropriate for me today.  My little friend that was here last weekend has come back.  It seems to like to hang out on our pool fence.  How it can hang there I just don’t know, but I watched and it kept landing there again and again.  So of course I asked it to stay long enough for me to get another photo.  I’ve decided to name this little fella “Tude.”  Short for gratitude. Maybe it’s a female.  How would I know?  But for my purposes, it’s name is Tude.  Click the photo to see Tude larger.

So the world through my eyes today includes Tude.  Did I tell you that last weekend I asked for rain and got it?  And then it stopped so I went outside again and said, “oh no, this isn’t enough.  I want more.  I love the smell of it and my plants all need nature’s water.”  The universe obliged and it started pouring.  Strange but true.  Ask and ye shall receive.

My mantra these days is “wouldn’t it be nice if … (fill in the blank)?  Namaste’

OK, Just One More from the Vision Board

I know I said I wouldn’t but I’m adding one more piece from my vision board.  I saw a quote today that lent itself well to my vision:

If a single person achieves the highest kind of love it will be sufficient to neutralize the hate of millions. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
