Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

Summer warmth

All winter long I wait for this. I wait for temperatures to reach the nineties. Add some humidity and it's 104 degrees Fahrenheit. So warm, but to the bones it feels great! It's like a warm bath soothing my achy muscles.

This is one of my favorite places to sit. Thanks to a very dear friend who takes care of the yard. I miss the days when I could do it all.

Here's my 'cool off' tip: take a bottle of water when you're sitting outside. When you get too warm pour a small capful of water on top of your head. Even if the water is warm it will feel cool.

Have a great summer everyone!!


  1. Hi Dixie,
    That looks like a very peaceful spot. I would imagine it is a sanctuary and a place for gentle reflection.
    I wish you a great summer and all the very best in whatever you are doing these days.
    Thanks for the cooling off tip.
    With respect, Gary :-)

  2. Thank you, Gary. The trees hold a rod of copper that I twisted into a spiral shape. I then laid it across the front limbs and hang my wind chimes on it!

    I'm just enjoying the days. Hope that you are too. Stay cool :)

  3. Thank you for letting me sit a while at your tree. Love and best wishes, Julie x

  4. Oh, Julie, it's such a lovely spot. Come back to visit any time. Sending love and best wishes to you too. Dixie xx
