Our Lane, Hydrangeas and A Blackberry Hedge

20 Aug

I love our walk into town down the lane.It’s becoming autumny with all the leaves brought down by the gales overnight and still blowing hoolies today.

There are hydrangeas in flower everywhere, in shades of blue and mauve, cream and pink and all just lovely.

Along our walk this evening was another hedgeful of blackberries but we picked so many the other day we won’t need any more for a while!

    Walking in Beauty: Closing Prayer from the Navajo Way Blessing Ceremony

    In beauty I walk
    With beauty before me I walk
    With beauty behind me I walk
    With beauty above me I walk
    With beauty around me I walk
    It has become beauty again
    Hózhóogo naasháa doo
Shitsijí’ hózhóogo naasháa doo
Shikéédéé hózhóogo naasháa doo
Shideigi hózhóogo naasháa doo
T’áá altso shinaagóó hózhóogo naasháa doo
Hózhó náhásdlíí’
Hózhó náhásdlíí’
Hózhó náhásdlíí’
Hózhó náhásdlíí’
    Today I will walk out, today everything negative will leave me
    I will be as I was before, I will have a cool breeze over my body.
    I will have a light body, I will be happy forever, nothing will hinder me.
    I walk with beauty before me. I walk with beauty behind me.
    I walk with beauty below me. I walk with beauty above me.
    I walk with beauty around me. My words will be beautiful.
    In beauty all day long may I walk.
    Through the returning seasons, may I walk.
    On the trail marked with pollen may I walk.
    With dew about my feet, may I walk.
    With beauty before me may I walk.
    With beauty behind me may I walk.
    With beauty below me may I walk.
    With beauty above me may I walk.
    With beauty all around me may I walk.
    In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk.
    In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk.
    My words will be beautiful…

      Oh, my! That is so very lovely. Thank you so much for sharing this. I shall put it in the body of my blog in a few days as not everyone reads the comments so may miss this loveliness. Thank you again. 🙂
