Today, I turned 65 and look forward to aging gracefully with patience, persistence, and purpose. Even though my body feels the effects of time more each year, that which is more truly me still is curious, imaginative, and alert to be productive in the new possibilities of each day. May we all receive the blessings of each new day, and be the blessing that others experience.
My nature photos help me to experience my soulscape, reflected in nature. As I ponder nature scenes I understand more about my relationship with the Divine and others, which inspires me. Allen Nice-Webb, photographer
The presence of the Divine in my life experience is central to my inner healing, wholeness, and well-being. For me, making art is meditation and prayer, restorative and restful for my soul. Karen Nice-Webb, artist
For each one of us, art and life share a space where our soul-scape is expressed. As one loves to garden and sees the benefits for nature as well as oneself, it is the crafting of landscape and soul-scape simultaneously. When we are in touch with, connected to, and consistent in our outer and inner selves we find our heart ablaze with wonder and gratitude.

As we travel through our life moments, it is important that we take time to rest. As I traveled along this path the bench seemed to call out “rest here”. If we practice listening to our inner voice we will become accustom to this need for rest and learn that it is essential to be at our full readiness in each of our life experiences. When we are well rested, we can be more fully present in the many varied moments and with our interactions.
Daylilies remind me to take note of my purpose in life and to be faithful to that each day. It is a good thing to focus or refocus each morning if I am to be true to my understanding of my purpose. Even though flowers last but a day, oh, the radiant beauty they share to encourage and brighten one’s way. May it also be true that I encourage and brighten others in their life experience by remaining fully present to each moment, not worrying about the past or preoccupied with the future. Now is the moment I have to shine, so I purpose to shine on.
A day in the mountains, reflecting on life, open to new possibilities, longing for growth and personal development, often results in transformation. Change that directs me towards a better day within a better way is refreshing and promise-filled.
Our life choices have a way of producing an overall pattern for others to see and for us to live by. May we rightly discern our choices that our life patterns are as beautiful as nature’s artwork. May we choose this day to live according to life patterns of peace, justice, and well-being for all.
Accepting the beauty of oneself, just you, yourself, is a good start towards accepting others for who they are on any given day. Of course, we need to be discerning about ourselves and others to make wise decisions regarding our areas needing revision or complete makeovers, as well as developing healthy relationships.
Appreciate the goodness in you and apply that goodness in all of your relations.
Some days our path seems so long and lonely. Our view of the exterior events is shaped by the atmosphere of our interior beliefs, thoughts, and feelings.
In these times, seek to reframe your moment, rename your experience, and reclaim your purpose, so that life giving energy is yours to share.
May each day be greeted with eagerness for the journey to begin.
Explore the possibilities and look for the opportunities to grow, make new friends, and share the load to brighten one another’s life experience.
A composite of two of my favorite places along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Long range views of the mountains and resting by the waterfall soothes my soul. There is something powerful for me when I spend a few moments completely immersed in the moment while experiencing mountain landscapes. There is a sense of Presence that at once, both relaxes me and challenges me to new growth as a person.
As a Nature Photographer, I am restored whenever I hike with camera in hand and breathe fresh air on the mountain tops or stroll along the riverbanks. I have learned that we need times alone to be fully present with others.— Allen
How does being in nature (mountains, waterfalls, backyard … ) impact you?
