Feed your soul whatever it craves...long walks in the forest,
long days at the seashore, 

                             long nights filled with sleeping or dreaming or skywatching or loving.

Feed your creative juices. 
Feed them time, feed them space, feed them a rich diet of fantasy and friends and feelings. 
Feed your spirit. 

Feed on dance and song and prayers and ceremony.

Feed yourself before you're starving, before you dry up.
Feed yourself from a river that is pure and untainted, sincere and unadulterated, fresh and clean and flowing.

Oh, and one more thing, don't forget to feed the baby, feed the dog, and feed the fish.
But first, feed yourself.  

We are slowing down a little here at Focusing On Life for the month of August.  We will still post M-F, but our posts will not be as long, maybe fewer pictures so we can savor the waning days of summer.  We hope you enjoy these last days of summer before the hustle and bustle of the start of a new school year begins and oh my goodness, the holidays.
