Perpetual Revelation

"When one reaches this state of harmony between things and one's self, one reaches a state of perfect freedom and peace--which makes everything possible and right. Life becomes perpetual revelation."
~ Georges Braque

Another perfect day in Hominy Valley, North Carolina...

Fully Alive

"Instead of being on automatic pilot, we can explore what's possible if we start to kindle the flame of being fully alive."
~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

Fully alive, riding through a wall of trees. Green goodness. Passion and happiness.

Beautiful Hominy Valley Sky

Hominy Valley, Candler, North Carolina

How do you describe such a beautiful sky? The colors take your breath away as we ride our backyard roads...

NC Highway 276

Heading towards Waynesville, the trees along NC Highway 276 are walls of green wonder. Slightly wet from rain, we took the turns gingerly and had the road all to ourselves.

Sunlight and Mt. Pisgah

Somehow, for some reason, seeing Mt. Pisgah always makes me feel good.

Bearwallow Valley, Hendersonville, NC

Splendid ride through Bearwallow Valley, Hendersonville's fertile apple orchards, to Lake Lure, on to Old Fort, then back home. A made-to-order sky and spectacular day. Looking up, counting my blessings. Holding tight to my sweetheart. Happy to be alive. Look at the vast expanse laid out by the Harley. Riding clouds, through the mist of time, dreaming with immortal grace.

Magnificent Sky

"Right now is a good time." ~ Tote Yamada

Magnificent sky, magnificent life. Looking up, counting my blessings. Holding tight to my sweetheart. Happy to be alive.

Where You Are Now

"Your big opportunity may be right where you are now."
~ Napoleon Hill

Here we are hitting the straightaway on Reeves Cove, in Candler. Our backyard.

A new beginning. Another new adventure, another road to conquer. Again, a feeling of clarity and freedom... Nothing like it.

Goats in the mist

You never know what is around the next bend... A cute dog greeting us... or a dozen hungry goats, gathering in the mist around an amazing bare tree.

Waynesville, North Carolina

Hot Air Balloon

Lovely surprise this morning as we began our ride. A hot air balloon, about five minutes from our house, was soaring above Hominy Valley. A rainbow of colors against the clear blue sky. Something to see, both from above... and below.
