Summer Mornings with Toads ~a way of being~ 

Summer mornings in my mother’s garden. The oasis she’s created in her a little corner of New Mexico brings all sorts of life to the cool shade and fresh waters.


I have seen birds, squirrels, lizards,  spiders, bees, mice, hummingbirds, bunnies and toads among other creatures.

We even found evidence of an owl.

This morning I took some pictures of the toads.

I thought about how their lives are essentially a practice in mindfulness and meditation.

Soak it in. Make a bed in the sand. Beat the heat.

Just be. Just be…a toad.

I hope you are finding time to be a toad today.

    1. Hi! I emailed a photo of the bunny (just 1) to you. I hope it went through. I sent it a few times so fingers crossed. Let me know if you got it?
