Focus on Life - Week 23: From Where I Stand

For week 32 of the
Focus on Life: 52 Photos Challenge,
Sally over at The Studio Sublime
prompted us with,

"From Where I Stand"
I regularly like to walk barefoot in our grass. 
Feeling the earth beneath my feet is both energizing and grounding at the same time for me.
I talk to God/The Universe and meditate a bit.

Taking in the earth, the smells, the feelings, the sounds.

Focusing on gratitude and life at that moment.
I'm so grateful to have what I do and be where I am (despite the 100+ temps in the summer).
 Earlier this week after a bit of rain, I stepped out and took some deep breaths and looked down.

This is where I stand!
Sally's  having a bit of a problem with her blog this week so her post might not be up for a bit, but here's where everyone else stands - go check 'em out!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Standing Grounded!


  1. I love being outside, but don't do it barefooted unless I am at the beach! my yard has a tendency to grow sand spurs where you can't see them...but I do agree it is great to get out and enjoy this wonderful earth that God has given us! Thanks for the post.

  2. Oh, that is so cute! Reminds me of the wicked witch with those stripes!

  3. Love your post Shel. And the picture is adorable. Cute skirt! :)

  4. so agree with you Shel! feeling the earth, and smelling the plants and flowers - especially after a rain .... nothing like it

  5. I feel like I can feel the cool grass on your feet from your photo and description, great photo and post!

  6. Such beautiful green grass. We haven't seen green in a bit here as we've had no rain. The goats have been crunching rather than chewing :)

  7. I love to walk barefoot there is just something so wonderful feeling the earth under your feet! Your photo is great, the blur is perfect!

  8. Hi Shel, I agree about going barefoot although it's definitely a bit trickier here in AZ. Looks like you found the perfect place to be bare-footin! The temps were actually pretty amazing this week.....

  9. Green grass and rain! Love that - the feel and smell. Enjoy.


Thanks for sharing what you have to say - I love hearing your comments!
