Soulfood Fridays

I'm starting a new series here on the blog. 
*
Every Friday I'll be pausing to notice something from the week that has nourished my soul.
*
A special, sacred-everyday moment captured on camera, or perhaps a snippet from a book, a recipe still warm from the kitchen or something whimsical that simply made me smile. 
*
What has inspired/fed/nourished your soul this week friends?
*
Feel free to link up to your own soulful spaces either at the bottom of this post or in the comments.

Here are a few simple things that have fed my soul this week.


“Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone's soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.” 

Rumi





These wheat sheaves will be shorn and stacked in beautiful bundles now. 
Just in time. As I tap these words into this page the rain runs rivulets down my windowpane.

 *
The pores of the earth are open and the evening air carries a chill. 
Summer is growing old gracefully.

As I write I'm listening to some beautiful, traveler music brimming with story and poetry.

I have been waking up early with the morning sunlight and hush to watch the birds feed from the window.

And I've finally found a nook for my drawings in the hall.

  1. Beautiful images, and I love your drawings. My soul was nourished by a walk in the woods with my little man today. It was exactly what we both needed, and we left the trail feeling connected to nature, and to each other.
