What Is Life? A Peach!

I have always loved reading about Native Americans. Ever since I was a child I was fascinated by them and wanted to grow up to be a Native American. Children!

I always have this quote in my mind, from Crowfoot, “What is life, is it the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breathe of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset”.

Whenever I am at odds with myself, with life, I think about this often. I want to try and enjoy my life. I want people in my life that care about me. That want to be next to me all the time, before it is too late. What are the things you want in life? Are you able to stay happy while you are trying to obtain them? What are your secrets?

A moon that is almost full, cast her satiny glow on all that lies in the darkness below
Wood smoke is wafting through the air caressing all the senses, like pleasant memories
We are reminded of all the beauties that surround us, and all that we have to be thankful for
In awe and admiration we with grateful hearts, give thanks for all that we have been given

Birds are always awe inspiring. I think of how they glide through the air and am awe struck. Naturally, the hummingbird comes to mind. Did you know that the hummingbird’s heart beats approximately 1200 times per minute? And that they have a favorite color? Yup! It’s red! Have you ever seen one in flight? Sipping nectar? Can you imagine the wonder of a heart beat faster than we can visually see? The beauty of is it astounding!
