Photos of my 55 gallon Planted Tank

Here are some photos I took of my new aquarium as I was setting it up. There are not any fish in it quite yet. I also need to add more plants. But it is a beginning.

Take a look:

 These pictures show the entire aquarium. 

I would love to hear what you think.

Musings on Creating a Sacred Space--pt. 1

Since last summer I have been thinking on and off about creating a sacred space that will be devoted to thinking, meditating, practicing my yoga, and simply being. I would like the following items in my space:

1) moving water
2) rocks
3) plants to attract birds, bees, and butterflies
4)permanent place for yoga, meditation

As I have 3 large dogs, I decided to fence off my space so that it will be a protected preserve that will harbor contemplation and quiet.

This area will be in the back of my yard beneath and around a willow tree. The tree anchors the space and will allow it to breath.

I will take pictures in the next few days to show the beginnings of my space.
