Dragonfly by Fleetwood Mac

Stumbled upon this this by accident….




And when the roses are half-bud soft flowers
And lovely as the king of flies has come
It was a fleeting visit, all too brief
In three short minutes, he had been and gone

He rested there upon an apple leaf
A gorgeous opal crown sat on his head
Although the garden is a lovely place
Was it worthy of so fine a guest



Saturday Sound Bites….Wondering Presence

Woke up this morning and while having my coffee I went over to visit my friend Calen over at Impromptu Promptlings …… I liked her latest post and decided to join in with my own.


My tree…from any angle.

The sunrise in my own backyard

The Ocean




Listen with Your Heart

Faith requires following the power of a whisper.” ~Shannon L. Alder~
Good afternoon my friends/family. The above quote is my quote for the day……today was, for me, the start of my new book..chapter one. It was inspection day for the house and property I’m purchasing. 

My White Oak Tree

The pull I felt from the moment I stepped foot on the property was so strong…I heard and hear the whispers. My daughter and I were greeted by my muse, the dragonfly….I then visited with my tree.

Inspections went well. Barring anything major I close two weeks from today……199 days ago, my life drastically changed. Physically, Jim is not here…but I hear him in the whispers of the trees…I see him in my visiting dragonfly….I feel him all around and inside of me…..I know he’s with me as I start this new book of mine…………

May you all hear the whispers of your beloved ❤

I have a peach tree 😊🍑

Signs Of Change

Well, after an absolutely dreary cold damp and rainy Saturday…the sun, slighter milder temps, and wind made an appearance today. Took a Soul Stroll down to the lake..nice to see water….

Sat on my rock…have to admit the tears have been springing up more frequently lately. Lady Calen may be on to something…I’m 9 days away from leaving here to start the next leg of my journey…..I’m ready to fly, but it’s very bittersweet…….Speaking of Dragonfly wings…..obviously it’s way to soon to see any Dragonflies hovering about…..BUT……………….I did catch a glimpse of a Dragonfly Nymph!

I’m taking this as a really Cool Sign……I’m ready for my Emergence…..the next cycle of this crazy journey that is my life. After almost 6 months of ‘gestation’ ..I’m ready for this….my transformation……it is bittersweet, but I know Jim is guiding me along.

After this encounter, I went over to the river to listen to natures music and left my own little sign…..

My Soul Strolls will continue

Though the paths I walk have changed…….

It’s Change and Transformation

That are waiting for me….

Leaving my ‘nymph’ stage behind me

My newly grown wings are prepared

To take me along on this next cycle that is my life.


NaJoWriMo..Day 2 (January 2017)

NaJoWriMo Day 2

Your Creative Influences

Yesterday you wrote about ways you express yourself creatively. For today’s journal entry, write about your creative influences. Who and what makes you feel creative. Who and what do you draw creative inspiration from? You might consider writing your journal entry in the form of a letter to a creative person or type of creative expression (singer, painter, genre of music, sports player, science fiction, author, poet, etc) who you admire and draw inspiration from.


My influences basically come from my love of nature…..over the course of the past year and a half or so, my inspiration was the healing I found out in nature…most notably the sea.

(I wrote the following the end of August 2016. …)

Early this morning

Waiting for the sun to come up

I embraced my Now…..


This life of mine

The life that I know

Has no real certainty….


I wake each morning

Thrilled with the expectation 

And the joy of being Alive…..


My life is pretty amazing. Even when hitting those bumps that always seem to pop up along the way, I know, around the bend, the road will smooth out again. In the meantime, as I’m learning lessons along the way, I may as well enjoy the scenery……………………..©lindafedroff_august2016

Today… my life is in a major state of transition, my heart still on the mend…..but I’m slowly finding my way back to embracing my Now. I miss my beloved Ocean and all the healing powers it provided me………….

Another, just as important influence is my muse, the Dragonfly, who has played a major role in my life for the last 10 years……never more so then the past 8 months…..

(This was written in April 2016)

Dragonfly Dragonfly
You came to me…

Bringing me Comfort,

Peace And Serenity.

Your message delivered.

Your touch I still feel.

Your time with me short lived,

But your impact was real.
