Imagine this~


My friend and long time customer, Robin, in Texas shared these gorgeous photos with me this morning and I wanted, in turn, to share them with you all. I'd want to pull over to the side of the road and have a picnic here. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing Robin.  Isn't she fortunate to make this drive every day?  These pictures were taken in Central Texas.  Aren't they beautiful? 




Imagine
(by me)

Close your eyes...
Breathe deeply...
Realize...
You are in control

Step out...
Take a walk...
Knowing...
You can always go

Listen closely...
Pretend a thought...
Silently...
Feel your soul

Take heart...
Move your spirit...
Feeling...
What you can flow

Allow now...
Let it come...
Seeing...
What it will show

Take flight...
Soar beyond limits...
Understand...
What it is you hold

  9. I guess I forgot to tell you all that the flowers are Blue Bonnet's. Robin took these pictures here: B. Highway 306 from New Braunfels to Purgatory Road (almost to Canyon Lake ), C. Highway 290 between Burton and Hempstead and here, C. Highway 290 between Burton and Hempstead.

    Enjoy!
