...just BE. simple...


Isabella Tiger Moth, Pyrrharctia Isabella

Description: The woolly bear is a fuzzy, orange and black caterpillar that becomes a dull, yellow to orange moth with a fat, furry thorax and a small head.
Ecology: One of our most familiar caterpillars, woolly bears are renowned wanderers. They hatch from eggs in fall and are often seen crossing roads, a strange fact, considering they eat almost everything. Look for them overwintering in your wood pile. In spring, they gorge themselves, then molt into Isabella tiger moths.


because sometimes.
happiness is laying on your belly.
watching a woolly.
navigate the grass.
it's that simple.
for me to.
just BE.
robin.

i hope you will join me.
today and every friday.
join me in this space to.
just BE.
shake off the ugly.
bask in the moments.
breathe in the truth.
and beauty.
that is there.
if you just look.

thanks for joining me.
invite your friends...
let's make the movement to
just BE.

sarah and zach's engagement photos

joseph is going to be a big brother 


There are times I still wonder what I came here to do
 & then I’ll see you sitting there in the light
 & all of a sudden,
 I remember & it makes me laugh 
at how often I forget such a simple thing as Love it All,
 no matter what you do.

wonderful, magical things.
 are happening.

...3.12.17...



No matter how much perspective you’ve got on life, 
it’s never all that useful to someone else, 
no matter how much you think they only
 need to listen better to know that you’re probably right.

a different way of looking at things.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

...time before dawn...






I’ve always liked the time before dawn because there’s no one around to remind me
who I’m supposed to be,
so it’s easier to remember who I am
~storypeople

minus two degrees.
attempting to capture.
the bubble freezing.
but more importantly.
i caught the shadows.
just BE.

...just BE. present...



“The tree which moves some to tears of joy
 is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way.
 Some see nature all ridicule and deformity,
 and some scarce see nature at all. 
But to the eyes of the man of imagination,
 nature is imagination itself.”
William Blake, 1799, The Letters



i love trees.
in every season.
but i think.
mostly when the background.
is foggy.
welcome to friday.
welcome to.
just BE.
robin.

i hope you will join me.
today and every friday.
join me in this space to.
just BE.
shake off the ugly.
bask in the moments.
breathe in the truth.
and beauty.

...just BE.










"Don't worry about failures,
 worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try “
Jack Canfield

i have wanted to do it.
and i have stopped myself.
a thousand times.
with excuses.
i am leaving excuses land.
i am, i said.
i am, said i.
i am an empty nester.
i (and my amazing husband).
raised three beautiful people.
they are grown.
it is now about taking care of me.
let's face it.
moms put themselves last.
it's not a bad thing.
it's just a thing.
and as you know, if you've been on this blog at all.
my mantra.
...just BE.
i want to just BE.
and i want YOU to just BE.
to do what we need to do to find inspiration.
we need to do what makes us happy.
so.
i want you to join me.
every friday.
starting this upcoming friday.
for a ...just BE. meme.
i'd like you to post (on your blog or flickr...etc)
 a photo of something that inspired you,
or made you smile,
or brought you to tears,
or that resonated with you.
a snapshot in time of a moment.
that let you,
just BE.
copy my one still frame, just BE button on the right.
and add it to your blog like you do for your other memes.
post a link back to my site.
and add your link.
and let's see where this.
just BE.
state of mind takes us.
{this include the men too}

"This was her time
This was her dance
She lived every moment
Left nothing to chance

She swam in the sea
Drank of the deep
Embraced the mystery of all she could be
this was her time."
{michael w. smith}

you have until friday.
let's do this.
for us.
i hope you will join me.
just BE.
robin.

...2.26.17...




By Brittany Glenn
As printed in The Wrap 

Have you had "that" moment in your life yet? That altogether terrifying moment when you look around and realize you're living someone else's life? 
Maybe you are underpaid  and underemployed. This wasn't the career you had planned--you should have been in that corner office years ago. Or maybe you are single and looking for a soul mate--or alternatively you're partnered and looking to improve your relationship.  And maybe you'd like to have more friends and fun.
Somewhere along the way, you lost you! But it's not too late to get back on track to the real you. You can throw off that old you that you don't recognize,  and be "the you" you were destined to be!

i am ready.
are you.
deep breath. 
let's get started.
welcome to coffee hour. 
welcome to this Sunday morning. 
just BE. 
robin.
