8. Magnificent, Grumpy Old Guy. Many thanks for sharing.

You might be grumpy but you find and bring us so much beauty.
You are a Generous Grumpy Old Guy.
You pay attention and notice things in the world around us.
From your eye
through your brain
then your camera
to the web
to our eyes
through our brains…
and wherever that takes us.

Here’s where your picture took me this morning:
Even in the darkest times
there is magnificent beauty in this world around us.

When I open my eyes, and my brain, and my heart
I am filled with awe in being a caretaker of our world, our Mother Earth, and all her inhabitants.
As a Jew, I am charged with Tikkun Olam, repairing the world.
Wisdom of our ancestors teaches us that
we are not required to finish the work
but neither are we excused from the work.
We must do whatever we can.

Thank you for taking me on this Beaver Moon journey this morning, Grump Old Guy.
What a restorative gift!
I face this day in gratitude and peaceful calm now, with hope,
ready to deal with whatever comes my way
with attention and intention to make it better.

You have found her…the “her” could be our Mother Earth, just a thought.
All sing now, with feeling.
