Three Little Birds, originally uploaded by CraftyMoni.

Rise up this mornin,
Smiled with the risin sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin, (this is my message to you-ou-ou:)

Singin: dont worry bout a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin: dont worry (dont worry) bout a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right!

Thank you Bob Marley!

When I took this picture in Santa Cruz I thought of this time last year and how depressed I was. And how this song kind of made me feel a little bit better one dark day. The song immediately started going in my head and I knew I had to take this picture. I wish I could have taken a better picture, but I still haven’t mastered my photography skillz yet.

This wast taken at Natural Bridges beach. There is an overlook there and Raf and I always go there first when we visit Santa Cruz.

Last year was really horrible depression-wise. But this year? Not so bad, despite all of the snow. I think it has to do with my being more mindful lately. I’ve been exploring Zen Buddhism and have found it really interesting. It’s kind of getting me to appreciate the here and now. My problem, I have found is that I need to find happiness where I am at at the moment. That has always been my problem and I am just realizing it now.

Maybe I will blog about this in the future. It kinda deserves a blog post all by itself.

  1. you put a real smile on my face with this one, M. Love the pic and love the Bob lyrics – such a great song 🙂

    i am moved by your last paragraph, and i would really like to learn more. i struggle with bouts of depression too, and have also done some buddhist studies… although nothing formal. i look forward to hearing more about your place of peace.
