My Life…Lost.


At least that’s what I thought.

I heard..their calling.

My name. Whispered.

It was The Trees.

They were calling me.

They embraced me.

These Trees.

I’ve arrived……




Sneaky Peak 🏠

Ok Folks……my offer was accepted. Inspections are being scheduled. Closing date has been set for 3 weeks!!!!! This is really happening……as fast as it’s happening, it all feels right. I know Jim has a huge hand in all this. It’s the way we always rolled together……………………..

When Jim was alive, my definition of Home was Jim. It didn’t matter where we were, so long as we were togethe. Hell, we started out sleeping on a floor in a friends house. When he died, a piece of me died with him. But I know he wants me to live my life, and in order for me to do that, I need my own space. Here is a little sneaky peak of my new home……….

Front view…….love my trees 💚🌳

View from sliders (this is taken from the listing..I was so freakin’ excited I forgot to take pics of inside..lol)

Rainy day view….💚 my tree

You’ll have to wait for the inside pics….of course I don’t own a thing. The cottage we rented on Chincoteague came furnished..so needless to say, I’m really starting over!!!!! 

I’m bittersweetly excited….I miss him soooooooo soooooo very much. Yet I know he’s guiding me….I’m a very Blessed woman, and I’ll never lose sight of that. ❤🙏

For The Love Of A Tree 🌳

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.”~Hermann Hesse~
Can one fall in love with a tree…..I Just Did 💚🌳

This tree 💚 This amazing, beautiful tree is located on a piece of property that I went to look at yesterday…….as soon as we walked into the backyard I could almost hear a Heaven Chorus sing.. and then, wait for it, wait for it…………a huge Dragonfly paid us a visit as we were walking the property!!!! 

“Indeed, I have long since come to know that nature feeds a woman’s soul. It rarely gives direct answers, but it ALWAYS nourishes, soothes and waters the SPIRIT, so that eventually growth occurs.

Today, marks 27 weeks, 189 days since I lost Jim. Today I celebrate the love of my amazing husband….and his gifts to me. I put an offer in on a home late yesterday, and my offer was accepted late last night. I now begin the process of inspections and all that goes with purchasing a home, something I haven’t done in a very very very long time. This is all possible because of My Jim……his love for me, and mine for him, transcends all time. I’m incredibly Blessed.  

My journey continues………

Today I Am Grateful 🙏🌲

Day 14: I’m Grateful for the Healing Power of Trees 💚
They’re an amazing source of healing for this gal. 🌲 Life here is a major change from life on the island. This much needed change is and will continue to aid me as I work on healing and moving forward on this journey of mine……

“Approaching a tree we approach a sacred being who can teach us about love and about endless giving. She is one of millions of beings who provide our air, our homes, our fuel, our books. Working with the spirit of the tree can bring us renewed energy, powerful inspiration, deep communion.”   ~Druid Tree Lore and the Ogham~

Trees in Black & White

It has been ages since I’ve participated in Cees Black & White Photo Challenge and this weeks subject is a favorite of mine….Trees 

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.”  ~William Blake~
