I love puddles.

Hop to it.

Childhood Vision

Back to my roots tromping through the fields in muddy rubber boots, dog in tow.  Seeing the world bathed in light; glowing & alive.  This is how I recall childhood.  

~ Karen Albert

Life is full of leftover pieces. Humanity discards what it no longer values.

Some days I just need a different perspective.  When I’m feeling low,  I remember how I love the way the trees that now oppresively tower over me, look from above.  That thought is enough to shift my perspective. ~ Karen Albert


Soul Food of Kindness


"Kindness and a good heart are the foundation for success in this life, progress on the spiritual path, and the fulfillment of our aspirations. Our need for them is not limited to any specific time, place, society, or culture." ~ Dalia Lama 

When our group of 6 bought sweet bananas to snack on from this woman she beamed with joy.  This simple act meant her family would be fed for a week.  Her smile lives in my heart, now a part of me.
Choosing light.
Touched by the sun beam piercing the thick canopy, the tender fronds glow vibrantly appearing brilliant on the dark forest floor.  We always have a choice in every environment we are in.  Succumb to the dark or negative around us often by blending in, or glow with vibrant alive energy.
At the end of the day you are the only one that needs to feel good about the choices you made today. ~ Karen Albert

 Seasons Collide

The beauty of summer frozen for a moment in time as the seasons collide.  Demonstrating that the only constant is change. ~ Karen Albert
