light after darkness

Beauty and light are often revealed after destruction or disaster wreaks havoc in our world and our lives. Do you doubt that? Take a look at these images of Antelope Canyon which was formed by erosion and flash flooding. See what I mean?  Humbling, awe inspiring, breathtaking beauty from ruin. It’s all good.

Thank you for your emails, comments and phone calls.  They meant a lot to me as we navigated some rocky terrain – we aren’t fully on track yet, but we are getting there! See you soon…maybe tomorrow?

  1. When I first saw the photo for this post, I wasn’t sure what I was looking at… fabric? fire? something unreal? The accompanying post about beauty from ruin made me think of the Phoenix rising, and that lead me to this quote:

    “A mythical bird that never dies, the phoenix flies far ahead to the front, always scanning the landscape and distant space. It represents our capacity for vision, for collecting sensory information about the environment and the events unfolding within it. The phoenix, with its great beauty creates intense excitement and deathless inspiration” –
    from the Feng Shui Handbook by Master Lam Kam Chuen

    Thank you for turning your personal challenges into a brave and generous reminder that, even in the face of adversity (or maybe because of it?), we can always rise up again, all new and improved to face the next ‘What’s Next?’

    And, even more, thank you for ruffling your Phoenix-like feathers every day, to fly far ahead to the front, and be among the first to excite and inspire us with what you find there…
