The Tiny X

I’m but a small X in the Ozarks carrying my ancestors’ ways with me.  It worked for them and works for me. 

Mother Nature talks to me and I listen. She gifts me and I am thankful.  I try to give back.

If the world would do the same we could all live in paradise.

We all live at the intersection of a tiny X--but not everyone makes the connections between past and future. 55 words of wisdom.

Less is more and our ancestors knew this! The past is always present in the future if we simply stop and listen when the past speaks!

Sandy said...

"X" marks the spot!!!!
The past always educates those in the future.

Gail
I often wish we could turn back the clock and live as our ancestors did!
You are blessed to be living the lifestyle you desire.

Totally agree! It is nice seeing where you live.

I think part of what is wrong in the world is that people are so out of touch with nature. This leads to many woes.

This tiny x -
a place called HOME
Is where our dear Gail
likes to roam.
As she walks to the rocks
with her flip flops on
To the "Granders" she talks
Merrily singing -
"The Valley Song"

I love the bit of "X" that you have share with me. Thank you from my heart :)

It is very true and sometimes worth pondering as who we are in reality and what and how we project ourselves onto others.
