Unitarian Universalist

Today Greg and I became official members of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashville. If you’ve read my other posts and the About Me page, then you know I consider myself Spiritual and not religious. I have studied and experienced many religions and philosophies, and consider myself a blend of all of them. My journey is not over, and I know I will add more to my spiritual soup as my life continues. At the UU Church, my spiritual beliefs and growth is accepted and appreciated. The fact that my husband and I are accepted, and can sit together […]

Karma

Yesterday I was reading a book about Buddhism, as I often do these days, and gained a new insight into karma. I’ve read this particular book a few times before, but never understood the real meaning of karma. Maybe I am finally ‘getting it’, or maybe I am beginning to listen in a new way. Usually when I think of karma and try to apply it in my life, I get stuck in a duality of right and wrong, good and bad. I suppose that comes from my Christian past, trying to relate karma to heaven and hell. If I […]

Nashville Photography

I started a photography class this week, and it has raised my passion for photography to a new high. With the gorgeous weather this weekend, I couldn’t wait to get out with my camera. I spent Saturday morning wandering around downtown Nashville, trying to let my eye find those perfect shots. I started at the new plaza in front of the Metro Courthouse. The water fountains were the perfect target for my homework assignment this week. At the far end of the plaza are pools of water running over black marble slabs. I took several shots there trying to catch […]

Dove Nest

While I was mowing the grass on the side of our house, I looked up and noticed a new dove’s nest in the holly tree. I hope this means more baby doves in our back yard. We had two doves last year that stayed close to the back yard. This year they began drinking out of the pond. They will stand at the top of the waterfall and drink from the rocks. If the waterfall isn’t running, and we come out on the patio, they will stand there and look at us like “Why isn’t the water on?” Early in […]

Vacation

Today is the last day of my vacation, and it’s been a great one. I’m so glad we chose to stay at home this time. I needed some down time from work, and didn’t want to return to the office tired from traveling. Greg and I have spent some quality time together this week. I enjoy our chats about the future, our home, our writing, and our dreams. We’ve been swimming, shopping, hanging out in coffee houses, and working on our writing. We made a trip to the farmer’s market and bought fresh vegetables and organic meats. I feel so […]
