Fire And Ice
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
By Robert Frost
The first time you see prayer flags backlit by the sun you do think they're magical. You wonder who hung them and you wonder what messages they sent into the breeze. The more there are the more you feel like you're somewhere special. Somewhere super charged.
I spent my days in Nepal looking for prayer flags. If you looked out into the hillsides you could often times see canopies of them indicating a monastery. If you were walking down the streets in Kathmandu you'd find them strung in the most random of locations. If you went to a temple you could walk directly under them and watch them flap.
They're as elemental as their colors indicate. Sky, Wind, Water, Fire and Earth. The Tibetans believe that the mantras on the flags will be carried by the wind to promote good will and compassion. I believe it too.
Hands down my favorite experience in New Orleans was wandering around the French Quarter just after dusk listening to the street musicians. Man they had style. It was a quiet moment among the hustle and bustle of Bourbon Street.
I figured I better share. I took this video right near our hotel on our way back from dinner.
The gents didn't have a sign up with their names so if someone would like some credit please let me know! I'd LOVE to give it to you!
We were graced with clear skies and starry dusks for the last few days so truly there are no complaints here.
I found a quote today I liked so I figured I'd share it with you. Consider this a friendly hello.
Its Sunday in my neck of the woods so it's kind of like a soulful Sunday.
These last three years, I know they’ve been hard. But now it’s time to get out of the desert and into the sun, even if it’s alone.

I didn't really know what to share with you this Sunday. Something Soulful....Something Soulful....these words bounced around in my head and then I thought: Hokusai.
I love this print. Sometimes I look at it and it makes me want to go on an adventure and sometimes I look at it and I found it soothing. I think that means it feeds my soul and gives me exactly what I need when I need it.
