Crazy Busy

Crazy-busy is a term coined by psychiatrist Edward M. Hallowell to describe the stressed state many people experience due to our modern age of information overload, high tech communication, and busy schedules. Currently I am in Grad school and I was experiencing information overload, my mind could not cram one more piece of information into it. 

This is a time when I need to turn my attention to the most inward aspects of my life and refresh, recharge and rejuvenate.

I know of no better way to recharge then align myself 
with mother nature and
to the majestic natural beauty of this area in which I live.
Mt Hood @ Lewis and Clark campus
From some deep place within me I experienced --
One perfect moment of rose-colored lavender joy. .
 And  took time to appreciate . . . .one simple delight, ... one droplet of moisture, .. that  held the light
still sparkle; ....  one small creature with wings most divine ...
I must admit a propensity to worship in the natural world, 
It is alive with pure energy with the power to recharge the body, mind, and spirit. 
Silver Creek South Falls-standing under the falls
 Just when I think my days are predictable - something extraordinary happens - 
I stand in awe of the water colored sky.  
Too many people miss the opportunity of standing under the rainbow because they were expecting gold.
Today I listened and I heard the sound of one small flower,  opening up and beginning its life
A Moment In Time
"I held a moment in my hand, brilliant as a star, fragile as a flower, A tiny silver of one hour.
I dripped it carelessly, Ah! I didn't know, I held opportunity. "
