Play

When we play
oh yes way
we let go
step into Flow
bringing the Free
to our Child of Glee.

Now in my opinion, this second part of my post is even more important then the first part, for it is about a man who knows the word play to a “T”.  Darrell, out of anyone I know, you play like a kid and it is you who inspires me to allow my little kid out to play.

Darrell designed a special LOGO that represents being a Super Hero, and out of three people he chose me nominating me for this award along with two other people.  Now, this is the thing that just about broke my Heart.  I am an award-free blog so I had to turn him down, ever so gently and with a lot of humor thrown in for fun.  But the more I thought about his Gift to me, the more I just knew I had to do something special for a very special man.  I want to show everyone the LOGO Darrell created, and so with no further to do, here it is.

Surprise, Darrell.  I managed to display your LOGO without doing the award. LOL

Darrell, because of you, I have been saying to myself I AM a Super Hero!!! Thank you!!! I do Love you and so appreciate you!! Keep on playing and being YOU!!!!

    1. That is a photograph, Brad, that I played with in apps that I have on my cellphone, if you can believe that. I actually did this while at a hair appt. just seeing what this button and that button, this slider and that slider, would do. I’m glad you liked this and I thank you for your encouragement for me to keep on venturing in this direction. Have a wonderful day. If you want the actual names of the apps. I would have to figure out which ones I used. They are so new that I don’t even have their names in my head yet. LOL Love, Amy ❤

  1. Well you paid homage to that one well. What I’m more curious about is the image you displayed as well. It reminds me of the things my kids used to make with the Spin Art wheel. Not sure if you are familiar, but Spin Art actually makes some fantastic things. So, is this an actual photo?

    1. Yes this is an actual photograph that I played with on apps that my cellphone has. I got antsy waiting while at a hair appt. so I actually created this while waiting. What you can do with these apps is phenomenal! LOL I had SO much fun with this …. I wonder what the woman thought as I muttered out loud …. no no not that! … oh wow look at this! …. oops! ….. wow! …. Hehehehehe Yes, I talk to myself! LOL I’m glad you enjoyed this pos, Marissat! Have a great day!! Love, Amy ❤

    1. Hehehehehehe I got around the award issue! I am patting myself on the back! I just felt really bad for Darrell who created this awesome logo,and I was unable to accept his nomination. So I thought and I thought and I came up with this. He is one of the most unique individuals I do know and from just interacting with him, I really have learned not to take Life so seriously. I hope you have a great day today!!! Love, Amy ❤

    1. Of course I did!! I played like a kid even to the point of muttering out loud during the process. LOL I actually did this while waiting at my hair appt. and in hindsight I do wonder what the woman sitting next to me must have thought as she saw me “playing” with my cellphone (yes this was done on my cellphone with apps) with words like …. wow! … oh no not that! …. uh uh ….. wow …..um ….. unbelievable! …. coming out of my mouth …tee hee ….. As it is plain to see, I honestly don’t care what other people think. I am just being ME. GRIN!!! Have a great day, Erika! Love, Amy ❤

    1. If we as adults took more time out to step into the joyful art of playing, this world would be a better place oh believe me! As for me being a superhero, Dan, I think you give me a little bit too much credit. I am me and I only do what my Heart guides me to do. I honestly do not know how to thank you for your uplifting words to me. But please know they really mean a lot. Thank you. Love, Amy

      1. The more you practice being a kid, the more it comes naturally. We adults tend to be too serious, having so many responsibilities. If I didn’t take out time to PLAY I think I would go mad. I just LOVE feeling like a kid!! 🙂 ❤

  3. This is my present and I get first dibs, so back off! I MEAN IT SIR! I HAVE A DANGEROUS NAIL CLIPPER IN MY HAND! OK! Lets start the bidding at $10 (insert crickets)… Do I hear twelve… Anyone? twelve crickets? Anyone? Anyone for Tennis? Sky Diving? MUMMY!!

    I absolutely love this abstract darling what’s her name… I’m gonna get a hard copy of this made, stick it to my face, and hide in the woods! In fact, you may have just reinvented camoflauge (dental floss for camels)! LOL!

    What really brought a tear to my eye? What made me tear out my hair, and thrash about on the floor? It’s that you did play at designing, and everybody loved it! That you have made a conserted effort to enjoy something new and succeeded, means you have grown Amy! More Free still! You’ve broken into a fascinating new zone of play! And you did it all yourself! You share and love so strongly! That’s why I nominated you sweetnick :O)

    Before I met you, I had nobody: nobody to say they liked my posts or they stink… Something! Being totally ignored is, I think, one of the worst forms of rejection there is! Having you around changed all that. Now I feel loved and encouraged! You did that too… This is your award Angel! This is really about you: a beautiful creature who found me and helpped lift me up off the ground! You are my BGF for always: {{{{Hugs!}}}} Love, Kisses, Monopoly money, Yen, Bus fare! oXo

    1. You have made my day, my dear friend! I am jumping up-and-down for joy knowing that I made you happy. I wish for you that more people would take the time to get to know you, because you are an incredibly unique person. Just knowing you has taught me not to take life so seriously even though it is very hard at times. You want to know what makes you so special, Darrell? You dare to be brave enough to be different to show the world your real self. That scares people a lot, for I have that same stigma within my entire life. I consider it very brave of you to be you. I am proud to be able to call myself your friend. You are the most unique individual, and your imagination goes beyond any other person that I know of. You make me think. You help me to go beyond my barriers. You make me realize I have no limitations. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being in my life. It was such a great pleasure to do this post for you and I am so so so happy that you came here to see it. Keep it close to your heart and know that you really have touched me deeply and that I promise you I will keep playing to my hearts content. I am also practicing getting my Google speech to recognize my voice so if there are any errors in this reply please overlook. Love, Amy

      1. OK! This is my Testimonial, and I get first dibs so back off! I have a dangerous toe nail in my hand! (FREAK!!) LOL!

        Just a sec. I have to blow my nose… … … (SNARK!!!) Oh Amy! Nobody has ever said anything so beautiful to me as this before… … … (SNARK!!!) You said you wanted to help me? Let me post this on my blog. Just this and nothing else. And I’ll call it: ‘A Letter From A Friend…’ This is the ice-breaker I need! This will melt their cold hearts to know just what kind of friend I have found in you: someone in my eyes, with a roar, worth more than all of their silence put together! A real Superhero! BTW, how did you get to be you? Your autobiography in less than 25 words will do just fine: Love, Darrell

      2. Oh , you are so precious. Of course you can post what you want on your site. Give me some time to come up with how I got to be Who I am in 25 words or less. That is a tall order! Seeing that I like to jabber and chat and I am a bit on the long winded side, this tiny tiny bio is going to cause me to pull out my hair by the fistful. I shall ponder upon this as I continue doing what I am, a job that I really am not fond of. So my thoughts will keep me occupied as I work… And that’s a good thing believe me!

      3. (This is a bribe!) If you let me put the ping back to your page at the bottom, I’ll up it to 50 words or less. And just to be fair, I will do the same I ask of others and write my own. Others will see we’re teaming up with blogging ideas and maybe get the message that communication’s the key to an easier life for everyone on WordPress. I must say, it is scathingly brilliant if it weren’t for time zones… LOL!

  4. Hi Amy Rose. I’ve recently not commented on some of your recent posts, but clicked ‘like’ only. The reason for this has been that once I read all the comments, I have this feeling that everything possible has been said. Today, I had a strange urge that I must express my joy of seeing your unique photo. Even though it’s a result of spontaneous, digital “play,” you chose to share its beauty. Wonderful!

    1. OH, Olga. Just knowing you are here makes me happy. Yes, I get SO many comments and believe me it is a challenge to respond. I have a system where most of my commenting on others’ blogs is directly those who comment. So don’t feel slighted that I do not comment on your blog much. I really am only one person and at times I get so overwhelmed by the amount of comments I get. What is said humbles me greatly and it also encourages me to keep doing what I am. My Life is very full and to make room for photography and blogging on some days is a major effort on my part. Bless you for commenting today. I really am letting my inner child out more and more and it just feels so darn good!!! It is healing is SO many ways!!! Sending Much Love, Amy ❤

      2. Honey, there are days I don’t keep up with it all. I have to just walk away for a while. There have been times I have actually contemplated on not blogging any more. It is a lot of work especially with the “volume” I have. I really haven’t been blogging as much due to Life that handed me crisis after crisis, but for now, I am back as much as I can. I do my best in all I do. And if that means chilling watching movies, then that is what I do!!! Good luck with your blog! Mine needs organizing and I honestly don’t know when or how it will get done. Take care, my friend. ❤

      2. Oh wow, you are going to get these tears going, SG. I mean it. I’ve had a really challenging day today with hubby and have been subjected to anything but Love. His problems from Nam have gotten worse and because of the hippa laws, I am not able to speak to his counselor or physician. Meds only worsen the problems. I feel like such a hypocrite sometimes because of what I post and “know” in my Heart, yet my Life is just so darn diffiucult at times, the furthest thing from what I do post. Thank you for listening, for when I have these days I truly question if I have any right to even post what I do. How can I radiate such Love and the one person I am closest to, does not see this? How can this be possible? HIs “war sickness” is so acute some days that there is just no talking or reasoning with him. His behavior is now extending to poeple in public places and I find myself talking to him to try to divert him as I would talk to a child, all to try to stop him from making a scene. I pray, OH I pray his counselor and his physician start seeing this behavior when he sees them.
        I also have to remind myself, that those called to the Higher Path, usually do have a very challenging Life. Yes many of my sayings do have their basis from my own personal expeiences and there too, I have my husband to thank for those inspirations. Without this man in my Life, I honestly would not have developed the patience and the compassion to the degree I do have. That I do know.
        Anyways … I am SO touched by your words and wish I could just reach you to really hug you. Not too many people know how difficult my Life is at times for I do not speak of it freely. Only when my Heart directs me to speak to someone I do. My Heart has been very quiet lately and here you are and I am pouring my Heart out to you. Bless you! Bless you from the bottom of my Heart for it iis Angels like you who give me the strength I require to keep on doing what I am, both in my private Life, and on Petals.
        I do pay a price for continuing my Journey of Love in a world that is insane. The good news is, I am meeting more and more of the Light, making my Life wondrous.
        I Love you, SG!! Thank you!! (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

I feel our souls hug when we can exchange our hearts in words this way- you have been here for me to lift me up so many times. You have every right to post what you do, because that is who you are and that is what gives you such depth. You love from a very grand place and you can feel so much more because of it. You hurt for your husband and you so wish you could do more yet there are roadblocks and that is frustrating for you! You’re doing so much and sometimes you get weary and that is ok. Sit in your quiet place and wrap yourself in comfort knowing that you do love and your desires for your husband have been made known to the earth that listens. The earth around you speaks to you by blooming and blowing and you capture that and bless so many. you are such a gift. i am so honored that you share with me and i am so honored at the images and words you give me that lift my soul! I love this new picture of you with the blue hat! blue like a new sky, like a crisp winters day, like the ocean that cleanses! Rest and renew sweet sister- your love is very real- i know this! shoo that doubt away and take some time to hold your beautiful face to the sun Amy Rose!! I love you very much sister soul ❤️💗🌹
