Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Rainbows and Ravens~

* Special Note~
For some time now, I have tried to leave comments on as many blogs as possible.  If you happen to have the type of comment box that requires typing in personal information and if they are the kind that does not offer one's name and URL as the main way to leave a comment, then mine are not working on your blogs.  They just keep going back to the empty comment box. I am really sorry about this, but have no clue how to resolve it~
Sincerely, Mary

Rainbow over the Old Faithful Lodge in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming~

A Common Raven flies into the sulfur gases as the 150' plume blows at the famous Old Faithful geyser, which is actually a bit smaller than a few less famous geysers~

    Watch the stars begin to glow.

    Earth below, sky above—
    Watch the stars with me, my love!
