“The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”
― Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me
It got up to almost 80 degrees here in South Jersey today, a little windy but the sun was shining bright and the sky was as blue as could be. I had been waiting to take the ol’ boat out for months and today didn’t disappoint.
Hubby and I went hiking along the Maurice River in Cumberland County, New Jersey on this gorgeous fall-like day.
We stumbled upon an old abandoned house of stone. A vulture watched us closely….
Beach and old dock posts
Tall skinny pines. Millville is located at the southern tip of the Pine Barrens.
Peace and beauty in nature.
“Do not seek to be regarded as somebody, don’t compare yourself to others in anything. Leave the world, mount the cross, discard all earthly things, shake the dust from off your feet.”
— St. Barsanuphius
“Let anger be guarded against. But if it cannot be averted, let it be kept within bounds. For indignation is a terrible incentive to sin. It disorders the mind to such an extent as to leave no room for reason. The first thing, therefore, to aim at, if possible, is to make tranquility of character our natural disposition by constant practice, by desire for better things, by fixed determination.”
— St. Ambrose, p.279 excerpt from A Year with our Church Fathers
Today me and my favorite peeps (Dad, hubby and niece) exercised our 1st amendment rights marching on the streets of Philly to hold our so-called president accountable. He works for WE THE PEOPLE now and we DEMAND to see his tax returns. If he’s got nothing to hide why not show us then? After all he did state on camera that he would! but we all know the real reason he won’t. #liar #cheat #fraud #traitor #corrupt
