Fog….A Haiku

Misty veil of fog

Murky Sunlight burning through

Clear, blurry my world

My backyard view this morning

Clear and blurry is my world these days. As I mentioned a few weeks ago , I’ve lost the vision in my right eye. That’s still the case. Looks like I’m dealing with a Vitreous Hemorrhage. Now my eyesight is far from perfect anyway, but let me say how humbling it is to find myself dealing with this. I’m hopeful that my vision, as imperfect as it may be, will be restored. In the meantime, while my view is distorted,  I can still see out of my left eye. 😉

“We ought to be thankful not for our eyes but for our ability to see.” ~Mokokomo Mokhonoana~

My own eyes are not enough for me; I will see through those of others.” ~C.S. Lewis…

The things we take for granted. 6 days ago I walked out of my house to attend a widows meeting able to see out of both my eyes, I returned home only able to see out of one eye. I’ve lost vision in my right eye. Possibly a detached retina, right now no clear answer. Next appointment is Wednesday for another ultrasound……

In the meantime, all I can ‘see’ is blurred light and some shadows..daytime is obviously better then nighttime….

I’m doing my best to remain optimistic. It’s scary. It’s frustrating. I find myself going back and forth, thinking the worst and wondering how I’m going to function and live if this can’t be healed…will I ever be able to use my Nikon again?…drive myself long distances?

I’m also telling myself not to go down that road just yet…….my retina specialist is proving to be a good guy who’s main objective is to get me my vision back, so once again I am Grateful for the people I’m led to.

In darkness God’s truth shines most clear.” ~Corrie ten Boom~

AND….On the bright side…I’ve got sight in my left eye!!!

GLADvent Day 11: Health

Here is Harula’s GLADvent word and quote of the day….

HEALTH: “It is health that is real wealth, and not pieces of gold and silver.” ~Gandhi~

Now take a moment to pause and reflect upon how Health has shown up in your life recently. It may be that there are aspects of your own or others health that have needed addressing this year. Is there anything you do, or would like to do, to consciously nurture and cultivate health and well-being?

I didn’t know what today’s prompt was till I got home…..this morning, we headed out early to a tree farm to pick out a Christmas Tree…..I’m a Believer in the Healing Power Of Trees, and know I’ve blogged about it in the past…….we were the only ones amongst the trees.  I wandered off on my own, breathing in the cold air, drawing comfort and peace. Nature Heals. 

Trees have the Power To Heal


I fell in love with this beauty 🌲


It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. ~Robert Louis Stevenson~



“Alone with myself

The trees bend to caress me

The shade hugs my heart”

Beach Therapy……

“It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life for me
And I’m feeling good”
~Leslie Bricusse, The Leslie Bricusse Songbook ~

A new day dawning…..bright and beautiful, filled with possibilities………The above video was Sunday morning’s sunrise, shared with my husband. We sat in quiet, companionable silence as we greeted the new day……sometimes all you need to do is sit and ‘just be.’

As for Today, I hit the beach later in the morning. My Soul Stroll was a slow one…..there was no where I needed to get to fast. I sauntered along, reconnecting with self and spirit….. The healing power of the sea and salt air is my ‘elixir of life.’
It really does help me get back to me…………..

When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused.”
~Rainer Maria Rilke~
