Green 💚🌳

When one is having a meltdown….one walks…..and breathes…and takes in ‘the green’ and is Grateful 💚🌳🙏

Grant me the ability to be alone,

May it be my custom to go outdoors each day

among the trees and grasses

among all growing things

and there may I be alone,

and enter into prayer

to talk with the one

that I belong to.

~Rabbi Nachman of Bratzlav~

Nature Heals 💚

Outside amongst nature

Is where I need to go

As I bleed my sadness

And allow the pain to flow…

Curled up on the ground

I become one with the Earth

My tears spill over 

As my heart feels a rebirth…

Releasing the anguish 

Setting it free

Lightens my load

While it allows me to be…

Connected to You

Our Souls intertwined

By an invisible thread

That even words can’t define.

I. Love. You. Husband ❤


Laptop Recommendations!!!

Hey Folks! I’m in a quandary! My ole trusty desk top pc is still up in PA. I want and need to start writing regularly again, so I’ve decided I need a laptop. Writing on this IPad just isn’t cutting it for me. I don’t feel the need to have an overly expensive top of the line one….my needs are ‘simple’ , at least I think they

Blogging obviously….my photos (I’m hoping to pick up my camera again as well) The usual social media…I’m not into gaming… those of you who use laptops, can you help point me in a direction?!?!?!

Embracing My Inner White Rabbit 🐰

Gotta love the timing of this!!! Just yesterday, I was looking at some old AIW prints. Almost bought them, but the dragonfly prints won out while telling myself Next Time I’ll get the Alice prints! 

Over the course of the last few years, starting with my adventure and journey of finding my voice via the Sandbox Writing Challenge, I learned to embrace what I thought of as my ‘madness’ and now see myself as thoroughly ‘sane’ within my own little world…..I brushed off most of the ash, some remain as reminder of the hell I went through and what I now see as a trophy as to have far I’ve come………..

“As madness becomes a taste of the saneness you’ve been yearning for

you lit the match which enlightened what was supposed to be.

While brushing away the ash, making space for what is spinning — an incantation to yourself that started with

A scream,

A shock,

A surprise, and ended with an eventual whisper into your own ears saying

Surrender, it’s okay, and float instead of fall.”

Jim was always telling me to follow my own path………the last few weeks, as I’ve been settling in to my new home and space, and things have somewhat quieted down, I’m hearing the beginnings of ‘whispers’ …. its time to go back down My Rabbit Hole‘ …. it’s time and I’m ready to Leap. 

Via Pinterest

“Perhaps if you are reminded that the rabbit hole lives within you

And that you are the timekeeper

Your own White Rabbit

The cartographer of your own map

All will be right if you just allow yourself…

… Leap.”

My Morning Musing ☀

Good Morning All……it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Life has a way of getting in the way lately. I’m slowly turning this house into a home. I’m actually catching myself, while I’m out and about, thinking I can’t wait to get ‘home’ which I take as a good sign. 🏡

Slowly getting the place furnished as I help my daughter with her ‘stuff’. Last week she had surgery to remover her gallbladder so I was in nana and mommy duty…all this while they are trying to buy their own home 😬 Craziness…..though it’s keeping me busy. 

But, I’m finding myself restless to start picking up my pencil. Pick up my pen. Pick up a paintbrush.   I’m restless to write…restless to paint…….so this is my morning musing….

Wishing y’all a beautiful day…

Tree limbs


As the sky begins to lighten

Bird song erupts

Breaking the silence

As it announces 

Mornings arrival

Awakening my senses

As this new day unfurls….
