When you reach out to others
you are reaching out to yourself
When you help beautiful nature
you are healthfully curing yourself
When you reach out to the lost
you are finding you’re found
When truly one with nature
you are color and sound
[Note: My wonderful wife, Marla, will soon again be having major shoulder surgery — for the fourth time on her problematic shoulder — and i may not be able to reply to my blog (or visit other people’s blogs for a while when that happens); my postings are all prescheduled, so they will continue to appear, only i will not be available to comment on them;please keep this in mind. Thank you!!!]
Reblogged this on Wolf's Birding and Bonsai Blog.
The ReBlog is much appreciated! Thank you! 🙂
I wish the best for your wife and yourself 😊
Thanks, Naturarian! 🙂 I hope your HS gets under control!
Best wishes to you and Marla. I hope the surgery goes well, and her recovery is quick. Your words about the healing power of nature are well-taken, too. Our world generally could stand a little recovery and healing.
Thanks much, Linda! 🙂
Regarding recovery and healing for nature, it doesn’t look like enough of that is going to happen with the present U.S. administration and its very callous lack of care about the environment.
monkey wish wife of tom speedy recovery.
Thank you for that wonderful wish, Mr. Monkey! 🙂
Wishing Marla a safe and full recovery.
Thank you much for the sweet wish, CC! 🙂
Nice poem. Nature is healing. Wishing Marla a full recovery and hopefully this will be the last surgery.
Thanks, Eilene, re the poem (and poor Nature has a lot of healing to do, with the environment as contaminated as it is).
Thanks for the wonderful wish regarding Marla’s surgery!
Beautiful image and poem, Tom. I hope Marla’s surgery and recovery go smoothly.
I’m appreciative of your comment on the pic & poem! Thank you much, Sandy, regarding thinking of Marla! 🙂
You are welcome, Tom.
Great poem. Wishing Marla all of the best.
Thank you, Francis! 🙂 Your heart is sweet! Keep the dogs and fish spoiled happy!
Hope things progress well and the outcome is successful, and lasting.
Thank you very much, Peter! 🙂 Lasting… yes!!
Beautiful photograph. Thinking of you & Marla.
Means a lot coming from you, nature-camera expert Andy! Thanks much re Marla! 🙂
Honey, please remember how wonderful I am when I aggravate you in the future. We are one when we stand together, taking care of nature, humble in it’s beauty, and respecting each dandelion. Love you, dear heart.
Marla, your heart is one of the most “caringest” (for everybody)! Luv U! 🙂
Many hopes for you and your wife, Tom, for a successful procedure and a fast recovery.
Thanks so much, Catwoods! We were both at the vets yesterday with our miniature Dachshund that has Addison’s disease. There was a woman there with the cutest cat! 🙂
Lovely post Tom. Best wishes to you both!
Thank you very much, Belinda! Thanks for the sweet wishes! 🙂
All the best to Marla Tom and I hope Marla recovers soon enough to be sitting outside to enjoy the beauty of Spring that you’ve captured in this delicate flower. Good luck to both of you.
Thank you very much, Linda! Marla was sitting out today, enjoying the perfect weather! I was too busy installing those decorative motion detector lights (but i was outdoors)! 🙂
Wonderfully said Tom, will miss your thoughtful responses in the interim when that happens. 🙂
Thanks, Paul! 🙂 Hopefully, it won’t be long at all.
The photo says what I want to say: Sending Marla and you much loving kindness.
Thank you; it means a lot! 🙂
Wonderful poem and image – thank you!
Wishing you and Marla calm determination as you move through the next cycle of surgery/recovery. By now, you know the ropes! Know also that lots of us have you in our thoughts.
We appreciate that very much, Jazz! 🙂
Goodluck on another surgery for Marla…may the healing power of nature be with her..
Thanks so much, Mich! 🙂 She’s on a way better, mostly organic, enteral feeding formula now so, hopefully, nature’s healing power is increasing for her.
That’s wonderful news😊
Wishing Marla a speedy recovery and time for you both to spend time in nature to heal and recover. All the best to you both! 😊
Your poem is beautiful, Tom. ❤ Thoughts and prayers for your wife, may it be a successful surgery with a quick recover.
I love this Poem hope all went well
I really love to take the time to look at nature because it brings me closer to God and as Roman 1:20 tells us the things in nature gives us clear insight into Gods qualities. Such a beautiful blessing… thanks for your post
