Apache Blessing With Pictures And Sounds Of Nature

(NATURE SOUNDS) Please click on the music to hear some soothing nature sounds that will transport you to a calm, comforting and relaxed place.


"May the sun bring you new energy by day,

  May the moon softly restore you by night,

  May the rain wash away your worries,

  May the breeze blow new strength into
       your being,

  May you walk gently through the world,
       and know its beauty all the days
       of your life."

This is my wish for you!
Love, Judy

A Slideshow...."Life In Black And White"

The following slideshow is a selection of random color photos I have turned into black and white photos.  They are in no particular order, and there is no theme....other than LIFE.  The music is from a CD of nature sounds along with the Ireland Orchestra. 

Some of the pictures are of family.  Some are of friends.  Some are of art work created by my grandson, Christopher, and his fiance, Emily...both students at the Cleveland Institure of Art.  Some are of Ireland.  Some of the people I know.  Some of the people I don't know.  But, scenes and people tell stories. 

You will see faces, eyes, smiles, fear, reflection, sadness, peacefulness, innocence, teaching, sharing, words to ponder and perhaps things I didn't even mean to share. 

It is best to watch the slideshow in the screen as it appears on the post, rather than on full screen.  I had to find a format that would make it small enough to upload.  Thus, when viewed in full screen, the resolution leaves something to be desired.

Upon watching the slideshow after I uploaded it, I realized there were two pictures that didn't get changed to black and white.  But, then, I said to myself...."That's life."

The slideshow takes about 17 minutes.  I hope you enjoy it.  Settle in, grab a cup of coffee or beverage of your choice, relax and be taken away into your own story.

A Wish For You

If you wish to hear a beautiful piece of Irish music done by the Ireland Orchestra, please click. I guarantee you will be happy you did. It is so relaxing.

Good morning world!  I didn't write what I am posting today, but I wish I had.  I hope some of these words in this "wish for you" will be exactly what someone out there needs to hear, or one of these experiences will be a part of your day.  The two pictures I have posted are from my visit to Northern Ireland in June/July 2012.

A Wish For You

I wish for you a day of ordinary miracles
A fresh pot of coffee you didn't make yourself.

An unexpected phone call from an old friend. 
Green stoplights on your way to work or shop. 

I wish for you a day of little things to rejoice in.

The fastest line at the grocery store. 

A good sing along song on the radio. 

Your keys right where you look. 

A rainbow ahead of you.

I wish for you a day of happiness and perfection,
Little bite-size pieces of perfection.

That give you the funny feeling.

That the Lord is smiling on you.

Holding you so gently because......

YOU are someone special and rare.
