A Visit from Miss Dragonfly

Yesterday I enjoyed my morning coffee on the back patio while doing a bit of work on my laptop. It was still nice and cool- the desert sun had not yet begun to bear its full force. I first heard the quiet hum of a pair of wings, delicate- yet fluttering at high speed. I turned my head gradually, and suddenly noticed a winged insect hovering over a plant in the garden. Admittedly, entomology isn't my specialty, so instead I'll just call this Miss Dragonfly. This creature was busy doing its job, but oddly enough when I noticed its presence, "Miss Dragonfly" fly over to me and hovered just 10-12 inches in front of my face. I sat still like a statue, watching and listening. The sound of her delicate wings were like a song. It was as if she were speaking to me. Then almost as suddenly as she appeared, she flew away to a nearby plant. I reflected for a moment on the beauty of what I saw and decided it was a good omen. I like to pay attention to the omens in this world. They are like guides, helping us along the path of life. This omen told me to listen to the universe. There are messages for us all, all we need to do is slow down and listen. This Labor Day weekend I intend to do just that.

A special moment.

Early last evening I went out to clean the pool. As I was back washing, I looked up and saw a buck and a doe, staring at me with nonchalance, from about 15 feet away.

See what I mean? Nature is in tune with you because YOU are in tune with her. :)

Gorgeous! I always believe that there is a message, perhaps it is simply to appreciate the beauty of all beings :)
