Beginner's Heart

Yesterday I read a great quote at Ella's Edge : It is from a horoscope site called Free Will Astrology, moderated by Rob Brezsny, who wrote:

"As much as I love beginner's mind, I advocate an additional discipline : cultivating a beginner's heart."

Wild Woman wonders
why it so often takes
until the last stage
of our lives
to regain the
beginner's heart
with which we
started out.

taken by my daughter and his grandma, Lisa Barnes.


  1. Because life is a cycle, a cirlce and as we reach the end so we begin again.
    Loved this and the pics of your great grandson are lovely :)

  2. I love free Will Astrology! Got to love the name.

  3. I love the idea of a beginner's heart. Something to strive for. What fun to see your handsome great grandson.

  4. I so agree with you, Sherry. Your grandson and mine..they have a certain innocence and love life attitude about them. We sometimes lose it along the way but these days I am prone to thinking I am finding it again. Thank You for sharing!

  5. You are a very wise great grandma. I'm sure he would agree.



I so appreciate you taking the time to read and comment.
Thank you so much. I will be over to see you soon!
