  5. "Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience. It isn't more complicated than that.
    It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
    without either clinging to it or rejecting it. It requires no effort or even thought, just a certain kind of spirit."
    Sylvia Boorstein

  8. Hmmm, makes me want to wander around inside to see what was left behind. Not to take mind you, just to learn about the last people who lived there.

  9. I get sad to see homes like this..I wonder how many generations lived there before someone just let it go. xo

  11. Where do you find these places? You have to wonder about that house's story.

  12. That house would be so much fun to renovate. It has a very symmetrical look. Hmmm...I could see it as a cottage with style. Nice photo.

  14. Another forgotten little house full of memories and mysteries. Reminds me of my grandparents farm home. I rescued the Hoosier and 5 legged oak table out of it before it was razed and turned to farmland.

  15. I love these old buildings that are tucked away behind over-grown grasses and trees. They always seem to hold a story, don't they? You should host a writing blog and post these kinds of photos for people to create their own stories. I bet you would get some great stuff.

  20. Great treatment of that old house - looks like an old family snapshot from way back !

    And a wonderful 'ode to the trees' - beautiful shots.

    Those lemon bars DO look so healthy !

  21. It is a beautiful image. It certainly achieves a lot of positive reaction focused on distant memories.

    Someone mentioned 'vintage'; it reminds me of how paper yellows with age.

    Well done!!! Perhaps you'll share your technique with your faithful followers. :)

  22. If those wall could talk...what stories would they tell? Makes me wonder how a home like that gets abandoned.
