Welcome to Catnip of Life

on February 25, 2012

I know no subject more elevating, more amazing, more ready to the poetical enthusiasm, the philosophical reflection, and the moral sentiment than the works of nature. Where can we meet such variety, such beauty, such magnificence?

                                                                                 —James Thomson (Scottish Poet, 1700–1748)

Isn’t life completely surrounded by the raw touch of nature? Captivating moments are right before our eyes, music to our ears, within our very grasp and under our noses waiting to be enjoyed. To inevitably understand living, we must observe life at its best, listen to life’s songs, embrace life’s bounties, breathe the breath of life and savor life to its fullest!

Nothing like the smell of rain, the cleansing touch of nature!

The beliefs behind Catnip of Life expose nature as a diamond in the rough and its power to heal. Poetic verses reveal openness to the world around us and how simple everyday happenings and observances make a difference, not only in our lives but also in the lives of others. From reflections where happiness is found with the falling rain and sunshine eases our sorrows to experiencing The Thread of Life where life is given a second chance, there exists excitement, enchantment, emotion, heartbreak and contentment.

But, where do we begin? Man in his inherent nature commands daily strife. So-o-o-o, all the reason to take time to inhale, exhale deeply and breathe—breathe the breath of life. After that deep breath, close your eyes and ponder for a moment  this question: Have you ever stood in the pouring rain or taken time to actually smell the rain?

    How do you manage to keep so many balls in the air? You do so much, I am awestruck that you can maintain so many different streams and do them all so well! Amazing lady!

      I don’t know how I do it either:>) Like Nike. . .Just DO IT! It is the email that has gone ballistic! I am working on the laptop right now in an Urgent Care Center. We are in south FL visiting our middle daughter and family. The air is so heavy and humid Jim had to find a place for a breathing treatment (he has COPD). Been an hour and a half already. Not sure how much longer. We are due home on Oct. 2.

    Being among those who need to be reminded to breathe in general, I’m extremely grateful for this post. Shared on Facebook not so much for others to see it but for me to come back to it when I choke on life.
