Jars Art by Majeur
Finding this image of jars brings back wonderful memories of my French grandmother who operated a butcher shop in which this type jar contained succulent olives of Provence. There were 3 of them containing the favored black, red and green olives. I am fortunate to have one of these jars in my home. Another memory was climbing the hill to the cemetery lined with a very old olive grove.
Such a peaceful sign
Sprig of a fruited olive
Man’s health purified
“If the olive trees knew the hands that planted them, their oil would become tears.” –Mahmoud Darwish
Olive trees can produce up to 1,000 years, if tenderly cared for and experience two cold months in the year for growth in the warm Mediterranean climate.
“But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.” –Psalm 52:8
These delicious olives are everywhere today, but as I learned recently, don’t buy those black olives in the can, they are painted black and they taste rubbery – Ugh!
Nature Art by Andy Goldsworthy
In my search for remarkable nature art, I found “Ephemeral Beauty.” This art school specializes in creating non-permanent beauty with perishable transitory elements.
Designs are short lived
Whatever shaped matter lies
Never to be sold

Three years strong, my fern plant hangs underneath a Willow tree. It seems to double in size each summer, but by December its branches withers brown spikes. It’s such a hardy plant.
“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
When the fern seems dead, it rebounds in Spring along with the birds.
It is through lush ferns
Hibernates during Winter
Shade essence for birds

Any Goggle search is made easy when the mind seeks knowledge; however, faith draws in Truth.
How precious is Truth
To appreciate everything
And prepare to die good

Sleep is such a wonderful thing, especially if it restores one with a healing dream.
A slumber that is real
Sizzled from head to toe
A divine healing in place
