Wishing You A Clear Path...

Wishing you a clear path,

the courage of conviction,

sureness of your own integrity...

and still waters.

Wishing you wonders of the forest 

in dazzling light 

and nature's solace when you need it.

Wishing blessings for you and your loved ones

at holiday time and always....

Wishing you Peace.

Happy Holidays and Peace to All.

  1. A beautiful trail of ambience. Great images :)

  2. Lynda,

    Beautifully said. Thank you for this! Hugs, Theresa

  3. Lovely pics and words, like the mind of dear Lynda. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Kia ora Lynda,
    What a beautiful montage of photos and words, as usual. But being thwarted last week from heading into the mountains with my oldest boy, and hoping for better weather over the next few days so he and I can head out this has to be a Fine Sign!
    I have quite a few mountain days lined up over the next month so I am quite excited. Lynda, cheers for your presence in my life, at my place, impacting here how I see the natural world and figuring out what that means to me. You, Robin, and a few others have made this online world quite exceptional. I wish you and yours a Peaceful and Nature Filled Yuletide Season. Kia kaha e hoa!

  5. Thank you very much for sharing your wonderful compositions on his blog. Wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Best wishes. Leovi.

  6. Hi Lynda!

    Your words are perfects with the images. Thanks for sharing your love and kindness.

    Happy Holidays

  7. So very beautiful. Holiday peace and blessings to you!

  8. Roentarre - So happy to see you again; it's been awhile. I will have to come visit. Hope your holidays bring you everything GOOD.

  9. Theresa - Thanks for coming by. I remember meeting you when I first started blogging more than three years ago! You were probably the second person to visit and comment on my blog.(Cindy Iverson was the first, I remember....) And we're both still here, going strong.

    Here's to hoping our bonds grow stronger and brighter with each passing year. Thank you for your creativity, and for being part of this blogging world we share.

    Hugs to YOU! One day we will meet...

  10. Ram - Thank you for your holiday visit and your friendship, and for friending on FB. I hope to share more of our posts together in the coming months. Blessings to you.

  11. Robb - Your visit today means a lot to me because when I'm a bit under the weather or underwater with life, it's the presence of like-minded folks like you that gives me renewed courage. These connections help tremendously.

    I'm stuck now on Long Island, the weather is cold, dark, and raw, and we have both just had the flu. It's been difficult to get out at all in the past few weeks. Which leaves my spirit feeling somewhat deflated in the face of life's ongoing challenges... So your visit means a lot, because it connects me to the wonderful awe and passion we both share, for the natural world.

    I hope you will have wonderful treks with your son when the weather clears, and warm contented times at home with Tara and both boys.

    Merry Christmas, Robb! Have a great time and take in those grand vistas of the Ruahines for me!

  12. Leovi - Thank you very much! And my very best wishes to you, as well. May the coming year bring you all manner of good things. :)

  13. Isha - Thank you, as well. I'm glad we met on FB and look forward to getting to know you better.

    Peace be with you, this year and every year. Shalom.

  14. Melody - I haven't been online much lately, as we've both had the flu and are in the midst of some challenges.

    But I'm so glad we've met, here and on FriedEggs and Broo! Looking forward to sharing our ideas, thoughts and perception in many dimensions, in the coming year.

    Blessings on ya, lovely lady!

  15. What a blessed combination of words and pictures!
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you, Lynda!

  16. DUTA - The same to you, dear DUTA.

    I've heard the fires are long extinguished in Israel. What a relief.

    Many blessings to you, and no more loss of property or precious life.

  17. Lynda, you give us such beauty all year round. Thank you for that. Have a wonderful Christmas!

  18. Beautiful. Same to you and yours!

    I did have to blow up that first photo to see if that was a tripod or shotgun on the shoulder! :-0

  19. Dear Lynda,
    Thank you for the lovely wishes. May love and peace be with your during this season.

  20. Wonderful!

    Both your words and images are beautiful. :-)

    Thank you so much for your visits to me, it has been so nice to meet you.

    Wishing you all good things! (and much, much joy!)

  21. That was so lovely Lynda. Thank you for sharing the beautiful thoughts and images.

    LOL...we were exhausted when we made our video. I wish I could talk the kids into filming us today as we are cooking and getting ready for everything.

    But, Pam said never again after the other video. Oh my we had been at the beach all day and I didn't even have and make up on.

    We all look just terrible but I think we made people laugh!

    Sending you wishes for the best holiday season ever and very Happy New Year also!
    Big hugs,
    Jackie xoxox

  22. Beautifully said Lynda - I return your words to you and yours wishing a joyous season to all. Take care.

  23. Wonderful wishes for the coming year, accompanied by photos that bring together our bond with nature.

    Best wishes throughout this season and hoping that the new year continues to bring you to beautiful spaces.

  24. Dear Lynda, I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas in peace and harmony and lots of joy and laughter! Warmest greetings, Petra

  25. Hi Lynda:
    Thanks for stopping by and for the Holiday wishes.. same to you! Have a happy and productive New Year!

  26. askcherlock - The same to you and yours, Cher! Thanks for stopping by on this busy day!

  27. Will - And you saw it's a shotgun, disguised as a tripod, right? Just kidding...

    Have a bright and merry!

  28. timethief - Love yes, but I don't know about the peace, lol... Our daughter's 90-pound hyperactive hound is staying with us for the week! While she and her husband go to Galapagos, we will be dog-sitting!

    Wishing you joy and good health, titi, a year free of pain!

  29. Susannah - How nice to meet you too! The wish for joy comes back at ya! (I am fortunate to find a LOT of joy in being out in nature and in doing art, even when things are not rosy...)

    My best wishes to you for the same.

  30. Wishing you the best for the new year, Lynda, with a grateful heart for the beauty that you share. It brings me peace.
    And I too wish for a greater peace.

  31. such a beautiful message and the photos are magnificent Lynda!!!
    have a beautiful day with your family tomorrow....and every blessing for the new year ..hugs and love Kim xxxx

  32. Thank you for the warm wishes! Thanks for posting this link up on Fried Eggs site. Such a word treat - and the warmest holiday wishes for you as well!

  33. Mario - Beautiful spaces to you too, Mario! Today we are stuck in a blizzard, and that has its own raw beauty, of course. But it's bitter cold and the snow is blowing sideways, with white-out conditions, so I dare not venture out with my camera!

  34. Petra - So good to see you. I missed you when you were gone. I think it's been over a year since you stopped blogging, right?

    I hope you will decide to keep with the posts for awhile again!

    I know Europe has had tons of snow. Well, we are getting absolutely slammed today!

    Best wishes again, Petra dear, for a Happy New Year!

  35. Kathy - A greater peace would be like having heaven on earth, but who knows if we will ever see it...

    Happy New Year to you, and may the Writing Muse shine brightly for you!

  36. KIM - How are Alex and Charlie? I'm looking forward to hearing your news. I've missed your kindness and your smile!

  37. Denny Lyon - Thanks for your visit. I'll see you soon over at Fried Eggs. Meanwhile, hope you are having a happy holiday week!

  38. Happy New Year, hon. *hug* My best to you & yours! :)
