From Pampas to Plains

I haven’t felt up to writing much today as I’m still battling a persistent, stubborn sinus infection that is making me tired, somewhat grumpy and not 100%. Yet in times of illness, I always remind myself that things could always be worse. Much worse. So it is important to be positive and put my plugged ears and stuffed up head into perspective!

That said, I wanted to do a quick post of inspiration. On Sunday, Jakesprinter’s Travel Theme was Plains. I did a post on thethrideyeworld as my entry and I realized how much the beauty of our wonderful world makes me smile.

Hence, I decided to do another post with a slightly different take. From pampas to plains with a few inspirational quotes to brighten the day (and mine!).

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”  – Rumi

“Beauty saves. Beauty heals. Beauty motivates. Beauty unites. Beauty returns us to our origins, and here lies the ultimate act of saving, of healing, of overcoming dualism”. – Matthew Fox


The Highlands of Guatemala.

“A lot of people say they want to get out of pain, and I’m sure that’s true, but they aren’t willing to make healing a high priority. They aren’t willing to look inside to see the source of their pain in order to deal with it” . -Lindsay Wagner

    • Thanks! Slowly but surely. We’ve been sick in this house since December! Rough year for the kids but those germs sure do float around. There are 800 kids at the elementary school!!!

    • Yes so true indeed. I think I just am a very energetic, active person so I get grumpy when I can’t run on full speed. But as we know, so many people we are close to have experienced terrible diseases and whenever I write about what most people around the world have to deal with, I’m humbled! We are so blessed. Thanks for the reminder! 🙂

  1. Your images are breathtaking. Visual healing is as important as any aspect of introspective work. The visual cast a brilliant light across my world. It obviously does the same for you. Hope that your family and you are feeling better. I do not know where you live, but in my universe Spring will arrive in a few weeks and bring the joy of renewal and rejuvenation.

    • Thanks so much! I just feel better when I write and share my photos. It makes me so happy. I’m finally after 12 days getting over my sinus infection. Feels so good to feel human again. We live in Minneapolis! Thus we have another few weeks of winter left and spring won’t be around until mid April. But that’s ok as March is our snowiest month and can be beautiful! Where do you live? So glad I found your blog!!!! Nicole
