There is no filter on these pics
The sky was really this colorful
I marveled at the exquisite scene
When you are leaving Star Tours you can stop in the gift shop and look at light sabers.
A storm trooper might start shooting at you through the window.
So you grab a light saber
He might surrender
And give you a high five through the window.
And that is one more reason Disneyland is the Magic Kingdom!
I had already dropped him off and said, "Bye, Honey."
The secretary told me that the papers I needed were in my son's classroom. So I got to walk into his new classroom at the same time he did.
As you can see, he was walking with his friends and didn't need me to help find his new classroom.
I am glad he is independent. We are proud of him.
Sometimes you have a great tree branch to perch on.
Sometimes you only have a wire.
And sometimes you look out at the cold hard world from a safe place.
Freedom or safety; it's a continuous balance.
The toucan at the aquarium cannot fly around like the hawk in the tree does.
But the hawk is in danger as it scrounges for its' only meal of the week: roadkill on the side of the freeway.
True freedom always comes with a price.
I love this article!!! I quote it here so I can incorporate the principles.
"Food is more than what you find on your plate.
Regular physical activity
A fulfilling career
A spiritual practice
The primary foods: Healthy relationships, regular physical activity, a fulfilling career and a spiritual practice can fill your soul and satisfy your hunger for life.
When primary food is balanced and satiated, your life feeds you, making what you eat secondary.
Remember when, as a child, you were playing outside, having fun? Suddenly your mother announced dinner was ready, but you were not hungry at all. The passion of play took all your attention. Or think back to a time when you were passionately in love. Everything was exciting. Colors were vibrant. Intimacy was magical. Your feelings of exhilaration sustained you. You forgot about food and were high on life. Sometimes we are fed not by food but by the energy in our lives.
Modern nutrition – carbs, proteins, fruits, and vegetables – is really just one source of nourishment, which Integrative Nutrition considers secondary food.
Secondary foods nourish our bodies, but are not able to give us the joy, meaning, or fulfillment that primary food provides.
We hunger for play, fun, touch, romance, intimacy, love, achievement, success, art, music, self-expression, leadership, excitement, adventure, and spirituality. All these elements are essential forms of nourishment, and the extent to which we are able to incorporate them determines how enjoyable and worthwhile our lives feel.
When we use secondary food as a way to alleviate or suppress our hunger for primary food, the body and mind suffer. Weight gain is just one of the consequences. Diet-related disorders such as heart disease, cancer, obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes are national epidemics, and one of the main reasons is because we are stuffing ourselves with secondary foods when we are really starving for primary food. If you’re not getting the primary food you need, eating all the food in the world won’t satisfy your hunger."
It's a long way down
I think I can jump
You can do it
That was so fun, let's do it again!!!
Last Saturday, we surprised Dad on the tail end of his hike.
We looked for the rattlesnake that another hiker saw. Luckily we did not see it.
And we hiked across the hills to get home.
It was a fun morning!
