    1. This was on the way to my Dad’s service. I am now home. That plane ride was extremely bumpy and I had a real challenge to get a picture holding my camera still. Hope you are having a great day today! Love, Amy

    1. I am back from the Void, Marissa. A bit weak, weary, but I am definitely back. Yes, this is one of the views from my travels as I was on my way to my Dad’s service. It was a ride with a lot of turbulence and to hold my camera still, was a real challenge. Hope you are having a great day. Love, Amy

      1. You know, I once took a trip and I was very upset during the trip. I was dealing with health issues and I really didn’t know what was going to happen. We took a shuttle bus to the airport and I looked out to a scene that wasn’t so different from this one and I just had this feeling of wanting to be there and look at this scene forever and never wanting to go back and deal with what I had to deal with. This picture reminded me of that.

      2. I more or less felt the same way, too, Marissa. I just wanted to absorb all that beauty set out below me and never come back to reality. It is during times of pain we have the most growth, my friend. Hope you are well today. Love, Amy

    1. Thank you, Amanda. I am going to pace myself with this blogging. It was quite the emotional roller coaster I have been, and still am on. I wrote a long post that is coming soon where I describe some of the emotions I have been dealing with. I am so glad you enjoyed this post!!! Thank you, my friend. Love, Amy

      1. I have no doubt it has been a roller-coaster of emotions, and I expect writing has helped heal some of those wounds. But yes, baby steps, as they say. If that means taking a few steps back from blogging – then so be it! You know we will always be here for you, no matter what! *HUGS*

      2. Thank you, Amanda. As in all I do in Life, here too I am following my Heart. This feels good today to be blogging. Tomorrow, I will see. (smile) (((HUGS))) Amy

      1. The Void is a magical place, Lisa. Not easy. I admit. Not liked, not much by me. But when I do arise, it is with such dignity and power, both added to what I already do have. Without the Void, you wouldn’t see the growth in your Life that you do. BIG (((HUGS))) Amy I LOVE YOU!

    1. Thank you, Holly. Through much turbulence we went through, I managed to get a few decent shots. When your teeth are rattling, that is a bumpy ride. LOL I tried to wait for a lull when I hit the shutter. Well worth the effort. (((HUGS))) to you as well! Love, Amy

    1. Aw, thank you, Kathie. I didn’t know what to feel when I took this image. I just wanted to sink into what I saw below me and never return to this world. I am getting there, my friend. I have made some wise choices this past week. And I have some pretty cool posts coming. One is a continuation of hubby and me.The other is a huge sign from my Dad, a post (a LONG one) that was created effortlessly. The story how this post was created is included with the magic words themselves. I am focusing on my work, Kath. And my family, my nuclear family which yes, includes WP. I am SO fortunate to be in the place I am today knowing you and so many others who deeply care for me. I am so honored, my friend. (((HUGS))) Amy

      1. I have had that feeling before and the picture captures the feeling well. I am excited about seeing your future posts with hubby and the one from your Dad. Yes, deeply care and glad that you are surrounded by love. {{{HUGS}}}

  2. Nice picture of chicken soup Amy! I’ve just sent my sausages to go stand in the corner for spitting at me… Hope you journey was a pleasant one. What’s this all about your health? Try the chicken soup!

    I don’t know why, but you never seem to show up on my Reader for some reason I can’t quite gather. Lots don’t show on that stupid thing! I’d complain but wordpress doesn’t show! And out of sight, out of mind. I’m only reminded when I see you at my blog. What is this anyway? Live TV? Get better soon! OK? If need be, an illicit drug cartel owes me small change :O)

    1. It’s not my health, Spartacus. My Dad passed away last month and what I went through with that, then training hubby to take over for me with our special cats clinic we run, flying down to where the service was, and then coming home, things caught up with me. And then some. LOTS of blogs do not show in my reader either, so don’t feel bad. I go to many blogs when I see them show up at Petals. I think it is all in the TIMING. If we don’t use our Reader at the time some blog, we miss them. I would like to see the Reader set up so that all of those blogs we follow that post on a given day, are listed. Now, that would be nice and organized. Don’t you think? I am no longer going to WP support because they take up my valuable time, and nothing it seems is ever resolved. Just more problems seem to evolve, cause WP is constantly changing things. Why cannot they leave things as status quo and work on those areas that need improving, like the Reader for example? Do I not make a wee bit of sense here? (((HUGS))) Amy

      1. Yes you most certainly do make sense Amy! I just now put up my Reader, and the first post that shows up is yours called: :’Fly’… Beautiful flower! Do you know the make and modal number?

        ‘Why do birds, suddenly appear’ It seems more than a coincidence to me that after all these months of faithful Reader viewing, you should suddenly show up just after I reply to one of your posts complaining about it. Are we being watched? I’m sure they have their scavengers to assess their situation with us: Buzzards, scanning from the cloud for rotting flesh! LOL! Anyway, all beside the point. I can see you now! YAY! BTW, I love the caption you put underneath the flower so I’m giving you a ‘like’ for FREE! And I want to pop over to get a better look at this strange, new indigenous species… AND THEIR DICTIONARY SUCKS TOO!! Like me, it can’t even spell :O(

        So, so sorry to hear of your great loss loved one! When my Mummy died, I cried for 2 years… Well, not continually. I did stop to eat. I donated her to a museum. Where’s a Taxidermist when you need one? In time, the pain is replaced by your fondest memories of them. But you always want them back… I believe in my deepest heart of hearts, one day, we will see them again. That’s Christ’s promise to us. And I haven’t known him to go back on his word yet. {{{Bone crushing HUGS}}} Darrell

      2. Strange how blogs I never see turn up in my Reader after I visit them. Strange indeed. It seems the same blogs keep appearing over and over again, when I know darn well hundreds are missing. *sighs* If it were not for the friendships formed here on WP, I seriously would contemplate going elsewhere. WP gets my hair all frazzled and in knots sometimes. And as for my Dad, I’ve come to acceptance that ALL that happened did so for a reason. That doesn’t mean I don’t miss him like crazy, but at least the tears have ceased for now. Oh, yes, when the pain hits again, the tears will wash away that pain. It really is hard to loose a parent. I really know he is in Heaven, right smack where he has wanted to be for a LONG time, so that helps heaps. I “feel” his presence helping me with my photography. I have a post coming where I asked for a sign while on a walk, really never getting anything special, so I was so disappointed. It was later on that same day that a post materialized as if by magic, and I knew right then and there, my Dad is really with me. Don’t miss on that one. That is the one I spoke to you about on your blog today. See you then!!! (((HUGS))) Amy

    1. Life is becoming more manageable, Raewyn, thank you. Loosing my Dad took a huge toll from me. The months leading up to his demise, were extremely difficult. For his sake, I am so glad he is HOME. Really. Love, Amy
