nothing to lose but our illusions

i read this quote today:

“once you start to see through the myth of status,

possessions, and unlimited consumption as a path to happiness,

you’ll find that you have all kinds of freedom and time.

it’s like a deal you can make with the universe: 

I’ll give up greed for freedom.

then you can start putting your time to good use.”

~david edwards

and it really resonated with me.

i don’t know if it’s because i’m getting older

& things i used to obsesses over don’t really matter so much anymore

{if they ever did}

or if it’s because of life changes i made about a year ago

{moving out of the crazy city, getting married, becoming a step~mom}

i don’t know…anyway…i love the quote.

i may have to make it pretty & hang it on the wall.

{but i digress}

i snapped these pictures of our lovely blooming mimosa tree

& a butterfly enjoying its bounty…

so pretty!  and the grass is all hot pink where the wispy petal thingies have fallen.

{until mr. d mows the lawn}

have a beautiful weekend & here are some things i found…
