Magical, Mystical, Desert Lanscapes
Miracles and Majesty of Creation

I recently spent two days in the South Judean Desert with my entire family, children and grandchildren…close to 30 adults and children ranging in age from 1 1/2 years to 21 years.

It was a beautiful and blessed family event celebrating the Bar Mitzva of one of my grandsons.  It was in itself an emotionally charged two days filled with much joy and laughter and I am grateful as always for the amazing blessings continually sent my way.

A family like this is not to be taken for granted and I sometimes find myself at a loss for words to express my gratitude to God.

Message from My Morning Meditation
laxman waterfall04

The photos in this post are all roads which I have walked in India. There were of course many more.

My life is a twisted turning road and I never know what awaits me around the next bend. But I travel this road in complete Freedom from Fear for I know without a doubt, with complete Faith in God and His loving Universe, that another wonderful exciting and beautiful surprise is waiting for me once I get around the curve.

It may be a sharp and unexpected turn and I will have to navigate it carefully and slowly, but once I get past it, a whole new and wonderful vista appears before me once again.

I am truly blessed to have found this road of liberation and joy and love. God is the engineer and Master builder and administrator of this road, and He has graciously given me, and everyone, free access to it. We just have to be willing to take the first step into the unknown with Freedom from Fear, and complete acceptance and Faith in what lies ahead.

The Amazing Art of Flowers

DSC02062

These amazing views are on a corner in the city of  Herzlia (not far from Tel Aviv) on the way to the next city, Raanana via Arlozorov Street.  I had assumed it was the work of Nature at its stunning best, but when I stopped to photograph the fantastic views, I met someone else there who was also photographing  it.  And to my great surprise he told me that this is the work of a person!  It is planned, seeded and maintained from year to year by creative, artistic genius Ofer Hochberg from Givat Brenner.  And Herzlia is the only city in Israel which allocates funds for creating such beauty within its city.

Hope you enjoy seeing all the photos below as much as I enjoyed photographing them!!

Sun Salutations-Mediterranean Shore on a Wintry Day

Mediterranean Beach

Mediterranean Beach

A couple of days ago the sun was shining brilliantly as it does very often here in the winter months in Israel.  Despite low temperatures, the Mediterranean sun is always a joy.  A bad storm was predicted and expected to last for most of the week, so I decided to take advantage of the weather and went down to the shore to walk and do some yoga.  It was glorious, until the storm clouds began to roll in.

Here is a story in pictures of the few hours I spent there.

On the way up the beach, to the North, the wind was at my back I barely felt the effort of walking the couple of kilometers.  As the clouds started to thicken I decided to head back.

Although there was a brisk wind in my face on the way back making the return walk a challenge, the walk INTO the warming sun was delightful.  Even in winter, the sun here is comfortable as well as warming although through to my joints.  At one point, despite the wind, I had to remove a couple of layers of clothing.

While relaxing over a cup of coffee, the clouds started to move South and I realized it was time to head home before the storm hit.
