The Beautiful colors of Autumn

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

Change is never more front and center then the cool Autumn days,

The red’s the green’s the yellow’s and the oranges so bright and beautiful,

Old man Winter is right around the corner with his white blanket to cover the Earth,

The changes of the Autumn season right there for us all to see,

All we need to do is look deeply into what we see,

We to go through changes just like the four seasons of the calendar year,

If Nature can change and show it’s true beauty, why can’t we do the same,

All change is good when done in the right way.

Some change may bring some pain and hurt,

But when we stay true to who we are, all change is definitely worth it.

 

 

 

The cool Autumn days may bring a chill to your bones with a shiver,

As you build a comfy fire within the fireplace, the shivers go away with the heat,

The summer heat is okay, but the cool Autumn days delivers a brand new outlook,

As the leaves show off their brightness and beauty, the tree’s are exhaling for the Winter cold,

With the cool days of the Autumn air, it can bring us all closer to heat up our paths,

But with this Society as is, the coolness of Autumn becomes freezing cold,

We all walk a path through this journey of life, time to walk together,

So we all can be warmed with the love and peace that natures shows us,

As it too changes from season to season and shows it’s true beauty for all to see.

 

 

 

With Autumn comes warmer days and cooler nights and makes for true beauty,

The Animal kingdom running around getting their lives in order,

fixing their homes and gathering their food for the long Winter months,

These cold days makes for many changes to all that breathe on Earth,

When change is handled correctly, it makes for a smoother transition,

Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, each season has its own beauty,

With each season brings many changes to us all,

just as our paths bring many changes at the cross roads,

With all these changes and some being good or bad,

Some bringing real pain and hurt to us as well,

but when the changes are done correctly and with confidence,

We all can go through this journey of life,

Better and stronger,   as we feel the love within our hearts,

Then share the love with each other, so we all can,

be at peace with much happiness always.

 

 

” The Autumn season is full of so much beauty for us all to enjoy”

 

” Change comes in so many ways, we just have to have faith and except it”

 

” he heat of the summer leaves us for the cool Autumn air, as we put on a Sweater to enjoy all its beauty”

Get lost within the beauty of nature

 

The green grass of nature like a soft carpet beneath your feet, the water so still it reflects all that is around it, this little boat house just adds to the beauty that is all around it, with nature so pristine it just screams for us to come and explore all that it has to offer. As you walk through this beauty, you will be rewarded with some wildlife like a Deer, Moose or maybe even a Bear, then there are the small creatures like a Beaver or maybe a few Ducks, we share this land with them and we all have to respect each other so we can be at peace with all that is around us. When we are at peace we then can enjoy as we walk and become one with the beauty of nature.

Right now we are in the clutches of Old man Winter, he has laid a white blanket upon all this green in the picture, this blanket serves a purpose as it covers the green, so it then can be as beautiful as ever when the season of Spring comes and thaws the white blanket and reveals the bright green soft carpet for us to walk within nature once again. With the white blanket that Old man Winter has laid on the surface of Earth, it also has a beauty to it, if you put on a pair of snowshoes or maybe cross country skis, then you can explore the true beauty of Old man Winter. Nature has so much beauty  and it is all around us no matter where you may be, you really don’t have to go far to truly see what Nature has in store for us to see.

True back woods wilderness camping to some may be a no go, but for the adventurous types, the beauty will totally take your breathe away, yes when you first get to a spot that you like to make camp at, it may take some work to set up camp,  like your tent and the canopies which acts as your outdoor kitchen, complete with camp stoves and grill, then there is the gathering of wood for the nightly fire to keep the night chill away, but after the first few hours, you are home free to totally enjoy all that nature has to offer around you. Sit by the lake and listen to the water hit the shore, listen to the Loons sing their tune as they swim by, watch the Eagles soar by in the sky and from time to time, you can catch them dive the water and come up with their daily meal, maybe if your lucky and a safe distance, you can see a big powerful Moose come to the water for a drink and a splash? There is so much to Nature that if you don’t take to an adventure, you will miss the best part of walking your path along this journey through life. You can also take the trail, the Appalachian trail to be exact, a little over 2100 miles from Springer mountain Georgia, to mount Kahtadin in Maine. This trail has so much beauty for you to see, yes there is some work of actually hiking up and down mountains, but when your lost within the beauty of nature, you don’t even think of it as work, you have a pack on your back with necessary supplies, including a small backpacking tent and a sleeping bag, so you can pick your spot when the time comes to rest your weary bones from the daily journey each and every day along this beauty of a trail. Someday I would love to do this entire trail, so I can become one with nature and truly see all the beauty it has for me to see. We all walk a path through this journey of life, but unless you take to the adventure of going outdoors and truly seeing the beauty of nature, you will totally miss out on a lot of what is around you.

 

” Getting lost within nature will have you walking and becoming one with nature to truly enjoy what is all around you”

” The green carpet of nature will give way to the white blanket of winter, so it can rejuvenate and be as beautiful for the next season to come”

” Back woods wilderness camping will take your breathe away with its beauty, all you have to do is be adventurous to see all the beauty it holds”

” The Appalachian trail is a trail like no other, it takes six months to complete but it is six months of heaven on Earth”

 

Why do they call it the Loon???

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

This bird known as the Loon, is also known as the Maine state bird. Not sure how it received the name of Loon ( have to research this), but the sound it makes is so soothing, as you sit lake side and relax watching the sunset  to the sound of the Loon.  The Loon is a quiet bird that goes about it’s business very quietly, it doesn’t bother anyone as it swims around the lake with no worries in the World. As good as the Loon swims above the water, it swims very well below also, you see him in this picture here and as you take the shot, he will duck under water and swim to the other side of the lake, like a fish beneath the water. The Loon and the Eagle as well as a few Herring, are what I saw most of as I camped for a week in northern Maine, mixed in with a Moose one morning at 4:00 am. I was woken one morning by some splashing outside my tent, but as I slowly opened the door, as to not alarm what was out there, I saw a Moose splashing water on himself/herself, wish I could of taken a picture, but didn’t want to startle the Moose with the flash, as it wasn’t light enough to take the shot without it. We all need to take a break every once in a while in a place where peace and serenity are everywhere, We all want to go to the exotic places where there are way to many others with the same idea, to me this is no way to totally relax, this could also be a big reason why there is way too much ugliness in our Society today? When most go south for the beaches and heat, I go north for cool and the mountains and around these mountains is where you find the peace and serenity, front and center all around you.

Like I said the Loon is a quiet bird that goes about his/her business and doesn’t bother anything around it, so why then the name of the Loon? I can think of a few of the species of the Humans that should have the name the Loon, simply because some are just a Lunatic, that will harm and hurt you, without thinking twice about it. We should all be like the Loon and enjoy everything that is around us, without trying to hurt others, in order to try to control everything around you.We all at one time or another have been a Victim, or we have Victimized someone else? It could be something simple like giving the finger as someone cut in front of you on the road, or maybe you got angry and punched someone in the face breaking their nose, or maybe even mentally like, not acknowledging someone, that just wants to be a friend? Either way you have been a creator of a Victim, or maybe you have been the Victim of this similar behavior?   Until we all treat each other with respect and dignity, this ugliness will never go away, we are the real Loons or lunatics here as we walk our paths of this journey through life, because the Maine state bird known as the Loon, is a peaceful bird that soothes you with it’s sounds as the sunsets on the lake.

This picture is so peaceful on so many levels, the calm water of the lake making the travel of the Loon easy across it’s journey, then the Loon just swimming along as peaceful as can be and unless you were looking out into the lake, you would never of saw him. This is what peace and serenity is all about, this is how to totally relax and wipe your mind clear of all the negative thoughts. As you sit in your chair lakeside and watch the sunset, listening to the soothing sound of the Loon, Then clearing your mind of all the ugliness, this is how to totally relax and as you relax, with all the pressures of everyday escaping your body, you will fall quickly asleep, leaving you with real sleep and not just closing your eyes, so you can function at work the next day. This could be the answer to all of us in this Society and for the why of, how this ugliness has engulfed us all. We simply don’t take the time to truly relax and to truly get the rest we need, in order to function properly, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” why call this beautiful bird the Loon, when it is nothing but peaceful and bothers nothing along its journey”

” To totally relax is something we all need to learn and take the time to truly do”

” Negativity breeds this ugliness around us, time we all do our part and let the negative thoughts go once and for all”

” Instead of the name of the Maine state bird being the Loon, maybe something more peaceful would of been more appropriate”

 

To much Lip service with no action

Dock

We throughout this Society are all about the lip service and have no clue, of what taking action is anymore. It all starts with our so called Leaders and trickles down to us folk, that make this Country what it is, then when you add in all the Propaganda Media, now you have so much Lip service, that it is impossible to have any action of any kind.

Our Elected Officials today will move their Lips saying what we want to hear, so they can swindle our vote their way, then once they are in the office, forget about any action, cause there is no action only a bunch of broken promises. With a National Debt fast approaching twenty trillion big ones (yes I said twenty Trillion), probably within the next couple or three years, shows just what our elected officials  are truly doing in the office they hold and that is nothing. Obama will say the Economy is fine, cause the Unemployment numbers are down, what I want to truly know is, the ones that have exhausted their unemployment benefits, are their numbers being counted? or are we only getting half the numbers for this? Because with the National Debt as big as it is, then what is truly being done to reduce it? The other thing that is not brought up is, a lot of people have taken part-time jobs, simply because the Companies do not want to pay for the Health care for these people anymore and our elected officials are letting them get away with it and then the people get fined if they have no insurance……… Seriously is this Country really better, or are we just getting more Lip service from our elected officials again and again.

We all want our five minutes of fame, we all want to be famous and be known for something great as well, but when it hurts all those around us,  you think there is a problem there, or more specific…….maybe their are way too many getting in each others way, instead of truly fixing what needs to be fixed. You can clearly see that what we are doing now is not working, so we need change and when I say change, I mean real change that is best for all involved. When you do take action, you don’t lean towards certain groups that are willing to pad the lining of your pockets with some extra cash, you take the necessary action needed to bring real change for the better of all throughout, so we all can prosper and be stronger moving forward.

This Country of the United States was always based on Immigration, but Immigration done correctly and when you see the word ” Illegal” before it, then maybe that is a clue that you are doing something wrong? With that said and given how the economy truly is, maybe it is time to shut the Borders for a short time, fix what you need to fix, so we can then move forward better and stronger, as freely as we can like our For-Fathers set up for us, instead of keeping the Borders the way they are and people coming here Illegally and stripping us of the true American Dream. I understand some want to come here for a better life like past Immigrants have done, so what is wrong with coming here correctly as those of the past have done? Plus when you walk your paths of this journey through life correctly, not only will you feel great and peaceful, but others around you will feel great and be at peace as well, with a bonus of, the United States of America can be great once again.

There are a lot of big issues that need to be addressed throughout our Society, with all the Lip service going on around us, there will never be any action of these issues. We also have to deal with this thing called ” Political Correction”, which is making us all weak and afraid to take any action of anything, for the fear of offending those around us. We within this Society have a lot of fixing to do and no time like the present to start the process of the true fix, the best way to do it is real change that involves, rolling up the sleeves and get ready to work, stop moving the Lips and start showing more action and become the solution, instead of the problem.

” if you want to talk the talk, then first you need to walk the walk”

” Lip service is for chatting to a Friend over the telephone, taking action will give you a feeling of accomplishment when you actually finish what you started”

” To fix the issues starts with taking action and being responsible, not being lazy and using lip service to say you will do something”

 

First day of Spring 2015, that has come and gone……..

story idea                   March 2015 with the first day of Spring in the rear view mirror and as this day brought, more snow, more wind and more cold, we look forward to the warmer weather, so we can get out and explore more trails like this one in the picture.

We all throughout Mankind are Explorers, as we walk our paths along our journey of life, we explore everyday the unknowns that come before us on our paths, but throughout this Society of today, we have ventured away from what has gotten us to this point. We have all been so consumed with material things and putting forward a fake reality towards others, just so we can try to look as normal as possible to those around us, so we can try to look towards others as if we have climbed the ladder of success in our lives, but what is truly success to us?

True success is one of those things we have clouded with our clouded judgements, clouded judgement comes from our troubles and pains of our everyday living, dealing with the curve balls of life as they strike us and give us much pain, then trying to move forward as we bury these troubles and pains deep within ourselves. With this clouded judgement we make bad decisions, which at the time all we want to do is, rid ourselves of this pain, not show others that we are weak or that we have any pain, so we move forward in this clouded judgement, as we put forth a fake reality and others won’t view us as weak. True success is not what we do on the exterior, as others view us as strong with no weakness, “True success is felt inside us by only ourselves, then shows on the exterior with our actions of those around us”.

When we truly feel good of ourselves, feel good that we walk our paths with confidence, while we stay true to who we are, show this love and compassion of ourselves to all those around us, truly feel the love of God deep within our hearts and souls and even in the coldest of days, we are warmed with this love of God and ourselves. When we truly feel this warmth deep inside ourselves, this is the true success of all our lives, that success we think we feel, with all our material things and how we look towards each other, only shows that fake reality we put forth for each other, as true success is only felt by ourselves and the warmth from it, will warm us deeply on the coldest of days.

Now that the first day of spring is in the rear view mirror and we look forward to the warmth of spring, may we all get out and explore these trails, not only to see where they go, or what they hold in store for us, but so we can learn of ourselves better, get back in touch with the true success deep within ourselves, not to just be true to who we are, but put forth our real selves towards each other, as we all walk our paths along our journey of life.

” True success is not measured by the material things we have, true success is felt deep within ourselves and will warm us deeply on the coldest of days”

” We all within Mankind are explorers on our paths throughout our journey, so lets explore all the trails within our paths of our journey”
