A haunting sound, a haunting moment does not have to be a frightening, eerie one, shades of Halloween.

Rather, it can be one that stops you where you are as it calls out to your heart, reaches deep within to that yearning point in your soul, the one that aches for beauty and serenity, a perfection of sublimity and awe.

The cry of the gulls at sea does this for me.

'Tis the season for flowers.

But then again, 'tis always the season for flowers and plants, whenever and wherever we can find them.

The earth is filled with abundant life, life that thrives in warm sunshine, interspersed by cool, healing rain.

I'm always amazed at how happy the plants in our greenhouse are, basking in the warmth when it's cool and breezy outside.

I send thanks to the buyer from Canada who purchased a framed print of

Shore Leave -- https://2-steve-henderson.pixels.com/featured/shore-leave-steve-henderson.html?product=framed-print

May the artwork take you to a break in the day, a time of quiet and peace in which you can think, imagine, create, rest, and rejuvenate.

Imagine a world without abundant plant life, without sunlight and rain, the warmth of light, and the normalcy of one season following upon the heels of another.

It would be a drab, sere, cold place, the kind you see on dystopian science fiction movies, a hostile environment where humans and animals would not want to, or possibly could not, live.

In the back of our minds, deep in our hearts, we all have a place that we think perfect, a sort of paradise where it would be delightful to live.

For me, one of those places is the country -- far out in the country and surrounded by meadows and trees, with plenty of space for animals to graze and children to play.

When I first saw Hughes House, the 1898 home (now a museum) built by the Pacific Ocean near Port Orford, OR, I thought, "This is a place to grow up in, be a child in, run about and play in!"

And it is good to know that, at one time and for awhile, there was a family in this house, there were children, and they did run and play through this magical place.

It was red rock country, all right, but not limited to that. The surface of the rocks and cliffs caught light, absorbed shadows, in such a way that an array of colors set forth before the viewer.

And they didn't just stay that way. As the light shifted and changed, so did the colors of the canyon.

Nature refuses to be circumscribed and classified.

Generally, there are no signs on country back roads barring the "Warning: Primitive Road Ahead," in which case you probably don't want to go much further in a regular car.

But if you don't see that sign, keep going, see what you see, maybe pull over to the side, step out of the vehicle, take a good stretch, and listen for the subtle sounds of the rural landscape.

It all started with a single thought, a moment of doubt in which, for the first time in her life, she questioned what she had been told about the matter.

And it grew from there. She asked more questions. She read books. She talked to others about her doubts -- most dismissed her, or even acted offended that she didn't just believe.

But she kept going. And growing.

There was plenty of food and plenty of time, so there was no need to push one another aside (is that ever, really, the right thing to do?) nor take giant, hasty mouthfuls and gulp them down.

So they sociably grazed, enjoying the day, the surroundings, and the companionship of one another.

Years ago, it began to grow along the steep hillside overlooking the valley. As a sapling, it weathered the wind that buffeted it, struggled until it reached a size that its roots ran strong and deep.

How it managed to not be decimated by the deer passing through, it wasn't quite sure. But it made it, alone and lone, firm, and strong.

"Winter is such a drab, colorless time. Everything is white or grey."

The little bush laughed to itself when the hillside upon which it grew shared the conversations it had overheard over the seasons.

"Aren't generalizations silly?" the bush replied. "They confine the people who make them into a small, drab, colorless world."

Well, why not believe the impossible, reach for the improbable? We do it all the time when we listen to the news readers and accept what they say as true.

Better to put that energy into determining what it is we want to achieve, and go about achieving it.

Out in the middle of nowhere is actually somewhere: it's a landscape surrounded by space, and within that space one can walk around outside in one's bathrobe -- or not even that if you please -- and not be seen by the neighbors.

You don't hear their TV or music. No loud cars, or sirens. No shouting, flashing lights, LED advertisements in your face.

That's someplace worth being.

We share our secrets and our thoughts with those who hold them gently in their hands and securely in their hearts.

These people are few. Even social butterflies who boast of being "people persons" with lots and lots of friends would be wise to watch with whom they share their innermost introspections.

You can't gulp down scalding hot coffee -- no matter how much of a hurry you're in, you have to either slowly sip and savor, or set the cup aside until it cools down.

Morning coffee is a welcoming opportunity to slowly sip and savor morning itself, to give ourselves a moment -- brief or prolonged -- to wake up, along with the day, calmly.

Light streamed through the windows, flowing like water into the room and filling it with a rich and satisfying warmth.

She leaned toward the light, into the light, seeking to capture that glowing warmth onto her skin and from there, to absorb it into her very being.

How gloriously contented it made her feel!

Of course there were things to do; there always were, and some of them could even be listed in the "important" column.

But at the moment, nothing seemed more important than standing in the yard, overlooking the bay filled with sailboats, and just letting one's mind glide from one thought to another, as if it too were sailing on the bay.

She laughed.

Oh, she knew perfectly well that she was supposed to be serious, concerned, keeping up on the news of the day, fearful of the Next Big Thing, savvy and cool, yet at the same time perturbed and troubled over . . . everything.

But she opted not to.

Mothers fuss, don't they?

Concerned, watching, attentive,

Showing us their love.

When you care about someone, you watch out for them. And while during our teen years we may not have wished to be seen in the presence of our parents, deep down there was a security in knowing they were there.

Just . . . out of sight.

Mothers, fathers, parents -- they fuss because they care.
