Who's Complaining?

Family is a bit like a runny peach pie — 
not perfect but who's complaining?

I know no other way

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.  
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; 
so I love you because 
I know no other way.  
~Pablo Neruda~

Be safe and smart my
wonderful boy..
I Love You

Dance With Me in the Trees

When I found trees, the trees found me.  
I’m home.  I’ve found my passion.  
We are two authentic beings playing joyfully together, supporting one another.  
When I am in the trees I am always in the present.  
Come join me, dance with me in the trees!

Two Deep Breaths

 the most important thing
 in a whole day is 
the rest we take between
 two deep breaths.

You Might Just See

And as the seasons come and go, here's something you might like to know.  
There are fairies everywhere:under bushes, in the air, 
playing games just like you play, singing through their busy day.  
So listen, touch, and look around - in the air and on the ground.  
And if you watch all nature's things, you might just see a fairy's wing.

Some will tell you crocuses are heralds true of spring
Others say that tulips showing buds are just the thing
Point to peonies, say when magnolia blossoms show
I look forward to the sight of other flowers though
Cultivate your roses, grow your orchids in the dark
Plant your posies row on row and stink up the whole park
The flower that's my favorite kind is found throughout the land
A wilting, yellow dandelion, clutched in a grubby hand.

one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.

Recklessly Blooming

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, 
there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.

Hopes & Dreams

Question reality,
 especially if it contradicts 
the evidence of your
 hopes and dreams.

Ready and Waiting

I hope you will forgive the terrible cell phone photo but I am so excited!  

It's our first raised bed in our new house!

It's ready and waiting for it's first planting.

Happy Spring

of saying, 
"Let's party!"

I get so excited over sunsets and rainbows etc, when you see them it's like you can shut out the real world and envelop yourself in a beauty that almost makes it feel like fantasy.  ~Mrs. Ron Harris~

Lift Your Voice

Lift your voice for the lost and show them they are not forgotten.
Lift your voice and show the world that we are strong.
Lift your voice and live with compassion.
Lift your voice and be heard.

Spring - 
An experience 
in immortality.

Every year, this lone crocus bursts forth from the ground.  
It's perseverance gives me strength to do the things I must.
It brings me hope.

2/3 majority

In what you say of another, 
apply the test of 
kindness, necessity and truth,
 and let nothing pass your lips
 without a 2/3 majority.

Strange World

The moon is a white strange world, great, white, soft-seeming globe in the night sky, 
and what she actually communicates to me across space I shall never fully know.

I would always greet it

Those That Sang Best

Use what talent you possess: 
the woods would be very silent if no birds sang
 except those that sang best.

More Alive

I often think 
that the night is more alive
 and more richly colored 
than the day.

Morning Coffee

The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce.

March bustles in on windy feet
And sweeps my doorstep and my street.
She washes and cleans with pounding rains,
Scrubbing the earth of winter stains.
She shakes the grime from carpet green
Till naught but fresh new blades are seen.
Then, house in order, all neat as a pin,
She ushers gentle springtime in.
 ~Susan Reiner~
