Helen Hunt Falls – A Two Minute Meditation

Posted by in Meditation Videos, Meditations, Waterfalls

A Calendar Of Sonnets: July – by Helen Hunt Jackson Some flowers are withered and some joys have died; The garden reeks with an East Indian scent From beds where gillyflowers stand weak and spent; The white heat pales the skies from side to side; But in still lakes and rivers, cool, content, Like starry blooms on a new firmament, White lilies float and regally abide. In vain the cruel skies their hot rays shed; The lily does not feel their brazen glare. In vain the pallid clouds refuse to share…read more

Fall of Songs – A Two Minute Meditation

The Trip Fall of Songs waterfall is on the property of the Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough, NH in the Lake Winnipesaukee region.  If you use the New England Waterfalls book for directions, as of July 2015, the price of admission to see the falls is now the full admission price.  In the book (published in 2010) they noted a smaller entrance fee for the falls only.  That’s no longer the case. Of course, being on a waterfall mission, I paid and went on. For the casual waterfall chaser, it was fairly pricey – $16….read more

It was highlighted by several species of butterfly I’d never seen in the…read more

Posted by in Authors, Meditation Videos, Meditations, Waterfalls

. The trip to Beede Falls was one of several waterfalls I visited in the Winnipesaukee area the weekend of July 4th 2016.  This is a lovely little falls with a big shallow pool to cool off in on a hot summer day.  It’s a little off the beaten path, but a nice visit if you’re in the area. The nearby town of Center Sandwich is also lovely. The falls themselves drop over a ledge allowing you to sit behind the water and look outward.  It’s something of a secret hideaway.  Meditation…read more
