fall adventure

fall flowers

Boy, you sure would think I've been at Squam from this picture. As you can see from my posts from 2012 and 2010, this is my usual motif. While I've actually really craved being at Squam Lake on these gorgeous fall days, I took this photo at one of the farmers' markets I visited this morning. And it's a helpful reminder that I don't need to go far to get insights and messages. These days they're coming for me, with so many reminders to take it slow, to find the ease, to let go into what is, and to enjoy all of it.

friendly adventure

love is all around

I've been thinking a lot lately about something Einstein supposedly said, which goes along the lines of: I think the most important question facing humanity is, "Is the universe a friendly place?" This is the first and most basic question all people must answer for themselves.

You can see which way I'm leaning...

ease adventure

I've had the good fortune to see a couple of great movies lately and thought I'd mention them here in case you're looking for something fun to watch. One you may well have heard of, and in fact may have already seen. If you haven't, I strongly encourage you to do so. It is The Grand Budapest Hotel and I want to go live in that world. Even if it is surprisingly tragic. If you like Wes Anderson, my guess is you will love this movie.

The other I'd be amazed if you've seen because it doesn't immediately look like the movie that it is. It is Best Man Down and at first glance it looks about as deep as The Hangover movies, which on second thought may have some depth, but hopefully you know what I mean. It is not that movie. It is amazing. And it is currently streaming on Netflix. Caveat: you know if it is Lizzy-amazing, it will be sad and weird. But you should watch it.

I think that's it from me for now. Catch you next week!
