Georgia, walking a snowy path with me

A Point of View Poem - click the image to read!

Walking with the dog on a snowy day
POV Life Legacy Loverage

With a Tree

Find a tree
stand facing it
ask permission
reach out
hold the tree

Keep your balance
visualize the strength
helping you with
your overwhelm

Feel the imbalances
move out of your body
down the trunk,
into the roots
breath in, mouth
breath out, nose

Remain for the time
it takes, breathe well
give thanks
leave a simple gift
for the healing

Legacy signature Stephen Hobbs

Alternatively, from the comfort of a chair, imagine reading this passage as you walk to an oak tree and say hello. The picture is of oak leaves.

NatureDear Olders as Elders: Trees are the educators of children as they are the educators of adults. Especially, when you listen and learn, then share and educate. A grove with trees, and trees as a forest are places where your awareness grows about the possibilities of experiencing an extraordinary life, creating well-living organizations, and eco-creating the wealthy wellthy world. What does it mean to be an outdoor-informed grandparent and parent? To be a nature activist - advocate - actionist? Let the trees be with you, and you'll know! https://www.wellthmovement.com/nature
WellthBlog Tuesday Reflective Poem about Life, Legacy, and Loverage - albeit the first draft #perspective #POV https://wellthmovement.com/point-of-view-life-legacy-loverage-wellth-movement-03062023/
WellthThe possibility of doing it is before you. To stand up - to set up - to stride forward. Ah, here is the test of commitment, grit, & awareness of being fully human.
WellthVideo: Stephen Hobbs' Favorite Mentor Was a 14-Year-Old Girl With a Gun Pointed at His Face https://youtu.be/18_qShyRzUE YT: Frontrunners Development, Inc.
WellthWe did done it . . . because it was - sometimes, as a routine - other times, as a ritual. Where & when is the intention present to experience the extraordinary?
WellthIssues are the questions. Initiatives are the answers. Thus we have problem-solution inquiry and appreciative-expansion enquiry. Sometimes together.
WellthFame and famous are words I seldom pen to paper. They are fleeting terms. Instead, I do my best by what I know at the time. I continue to learn-know-do with you.

In your dance between motion and stillness - this movement is a space to know yourself and to know what is enfolding and unfolding. A great place for journaling.

WellthPause, with reflection - what is here? You sense an obstacle. Sometimes, clear in its definition. Sometimes hidden. Don't turn away. Learn-Know-Do what guides you forward.
Copy: An already post - yup, I did done do this! Thought I was up for a 7 am live interview only to find it's schedule one month from now. And so, of awareness there is #intention and attention - pay attention, Stephen! Pay #attention! Let not, shoddy awareness creep into my day.
WellthAs you fan the happiness of a person's journey, do so with a handfan - share your insights with simplicity, elegance, and humility. May the fan be with you!
WellthSimplicity of living is the gratitude felt and expressed for what is in front of you. There is no lack of. Because you are here.
WellthEach morning I speak along my walk - "Peace be with learning, knowing, & sharing" . . . and, there are things I do not know as I enter the day. A realization unfolding. A challenge for learning and sharing.
WellthIN this moment - alas, in these moments because that moment just left, are the decisions of making it so, so IT is. INIT
