This is one of the things I see from my outdoor office. It reminds me of my Beloved and makes me smile. She found the piece and collected all the treasures the little girl is looking at. It reminds me of her and of the innocence of children. It occurs to me as I type this that so much of the beauty in my life comes from or through my Beloved, and I’m filled with gratitude.

With Love,


About russtowne

I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.

      Thank you for your kind comment. I certainly know I’m blessed to have her. There are days where my antics may make her wonder just how much of a blessing I am to her. ;-D!
