A Moment For Reflection

"Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nature has a way of knowing when it is time to rest and renew. 
Growth will come when the time is right.
When I think of winter it reminds me of a pause in life.
A time of rest and reflection.
A way of being that mankind just does not know how to do.



  1. Ah, so true! Well said, and shown.

  2. Carrie,

    I just love the sense in your words. We could all do with making time for rest and reflection.

    Best wishes Carrie,
    Eileen :)

  3. I think I'll go Nature's way. It seems best.

  4. Carrie,
    Thank you so much for reading and for your comment.
    This is pretty awesome. Both photos and your words make a valid point. I mean, what part of snow covered streets says..."Drive on me!?"

  5. Carrie...this is so true. never thought of winter like this....You have an amazing way with words and images.

  6. Nature has been hammering home a reminder for the last few winters. There may be an epiphany in our future.

  7. Lovely, Carrie........like the bear, I tend to hibernate in winter, so the resting part comes easy. Love your winter poem.

  8. And so it is...winter has its place in our world. Nice one ~

  9. hopeful, while seeing coldness.

    great take.

  10. You are 100% right on this one, Carrie!! Nice write.

  11. Winter makes me want to curl up under a blanket and sleep; I think I'll try to adopt your way of seeing this as a good thing. :)

  12. Simply "To be" is a great accomplishment...

  13. If I could get someone to pay my bills I'd hibernate all winter ;^) Nice

  14. Beautifully said~ Stunning view over here :D
