“The resting place of the mind is the heart. The only thing the mind hears all day is clanging bells and noise and argument, and all it wants is quietude. The only place the mind will ever find peace is inside the silence of the heart. That’s where you need to go.” Elizabeth Gilbert,

We have had some very pretty sunrises lately. I took this one this past Friday morning as I walked across the parking lot of the Lory Student Center on my way to Mugs Coffee shop for my fix. What was enjoyable for me in this image was the texture of clouds. Yesterday was lines and chaos, today was patterns and chaos. This is a jpeg file from the camera. All I did was bring out a touch of the blue.

I’m spending more time on campus now that I’m auditing this philosophy class at Colorado State University. A friend of mine is teaching the class and invited me to sit in on the class. And, I am enjoying the class. I take the bus to campus about an hour prior to class then spend a few minutes in the Behavior Science Building where they have a small and busy little coffee shop. These lines lead up the stairs to the other 2 floors and a beautiful patio area looking west to the Front Range. Have a good week.
They actually make a pretty good pizza. I haven’t tried the subs but they look awesome.

Yesterday was too gorgeous a day not to be outside. So, I took an early afternoon walk through the Red Fox Meadows near my condo. Found a little knoll with sunshine to sit and journal, which I really needed. Love the music made by the leaves and wind. Drowns out the automobiles in the distance and excess chatter of my mind.
After returning to my condo the time in the meadow was not enough of a nature fix for me. I listened to nature’s call and drove to the Arapahoe Bend Nature Area. I made the mile and a half walk around the ponds. Parking lot was full and saw several photographers shooting family portraits against the fall colors. It was a good end to a beautiful weekend.
