    1. Thank you, Dan! As you can see yesterday squirmed away from me so now I’m here today. LOL Have a truly great weekend. I hope it is as nice there as it is here. I’ve never seen such a glorious November as I am this year!! I love you for who you are. xo

  1. It’s sad how so many of our words that we use to express our honest, and innocent feelings have been corrupted by political agendas. Your friend’s “I love you” was surely admiration for you conversing with her, listening to her, taking her seriously and for being a true friend. It’s sad how effective the war on words and the campaigns against decency have been that it took you 24 hours before you could accept and enjoy being loved for simply being yourself. I’m happy to read a good ending and that you can accept and say “I love you” as it is meant to be.

    Your fall photos are so beautiful. We got a dusting of snow last night. Glenda came in wet from the catio in the middle of the night. I did not “love” having a wet cat in the middle of the night.

    1. Tim, your comment had tears stinging my eyes for you speak the truth how we have become desensitized from the programming and the conditioning that have been ruthlessly and relentlessly and intentionally thrown at us. We are meant to live in love with one another and to both show it and say it. Yes it is sad that the war on words and decency have so completely messed humanity up. We need so desperately to take back our true nature, not this crude onslaught of hate and immorality that has torn people away from their souls.

      Yes this friend was so touched by that conversation that she told me she loves me. Tim, that was a real Gift, one that at first jolted me, yet now gives me motivation to become aware how I can say those very words when appropriate. This world needs them.

      And as for your Glenda, LOL. Sorry, but I know all about the messes cats make. I have one cat, Meaghan, who loves to play in the water in the drinking dish leaving water all over the hall and kitchen which finds me mopping. Oh yes those cats rule as you well know. Love, your word “catio”. That shows me the extent YOUR cats rule. LOL Have a great day as I send you much love. xoxoxo

      1. ROFLMAO!!! I just listened to your song, and what a way to begin my day! Oh Lord! I cannot even begin to imagine how bad that smell was. I take care of a barn cat and now I am praying LORD keep those skunks away from Mr. Blackie. Thank you, Tim, for the laugh. Hysterical!!! Have a really great weekend!!

  2. I can understand the door that suddenly slammed shut when the young lady said I love you. Yes, we are taught to be so very careful because it can be understood completely wrong, although what is bad about feeling love? I said it to a friend once (from the other gender) and it almost destroyed the friendship. I meant it from soul to soul, nothing else. Thank God, there are such people like your young friend who just say it and thus break a spell in ourselves. We need love in our world, so much love, and we need it everywhere.

    1. Erika, our social programming has been all wrong for we are meant to not only show our love to others, but to say the words as well. For example, the onslaught of “oh that is politically incorrect” I heard regarding saying, “God bless you!” These conditionings must stop for they block our energy and our natural state of being.

      Oh yes this world needs love and in a bad way. My mission is to spread love and joy and truth and I will not turn my back on that. I feel such compassion how you were hurt so deeply when you told a friend that you loved him. I’m sure that slammed a door shut within your heart and I pray it has since been reopened. We need people who are not afraid to say those words. Since this event in my life, I’ve really been tuned into my Guidance as to who is “ready” to hear those words and when to say them. I just said them yesterday in fact, laughing as I did for the man I said them to is such a BS’er and he tries his best to pull one over on me. All in fun yes. I really do “love” they way we go toe to toe with each other, having a great laugh along the way.

      Erika, you keep shining your light and keep spreading your love wherever you go. It is so important right now to keep our own personal vibrations high by not getting entangled in the mess of corruption and evil. I do love you for who you are!! May you have a truly fun weekend and enjoy it as only you can!!! (((HUGS)))!!! xoxoxo

      1. Amy, I love your words. I fully agree with everything you said here. I cannot stand the phrase “politically incorrect”. Say what you mean and I tell you what I think about it. However, lately I made one of my coworkers a compliment. She always dresses so nicely and I appreciate that for her job a lot. So, I told her and she was delighted. I said that people are so quickly complaining but forget to say what they like about each other.

        So, let’s both keep spreading our lights and enjoy when others do it too. I agree, we need to stay close to ourselves for not lowering our vibration du to conflicts from outside… whatever conflicts. This is what can save this planet. Thank you for your love and I love to say that I love you too for simply who you are and for the light this YOU brings into this world 💖

      2. A kind and loving word goes a LONG way, dear Erika. A smile, a hello how are you?, complimenting someone on a positive attribute, are all ways to keep the movement of love going forward. For when we touch someone in love through word, touch, or deed, we awaken something within that person and in return that person changes right there. How incredibly powerful all of us are!!! We just have to see this in order to be it!! Oh yes I agree ….. keeping our vibration high and pure shall save this planet. No doubts there, Erika. I love you right back…… keep on shining, Angel! xoxoxo

  3. Ah Amy, when those walls come down everything changes. It’s like life has been filtered and we had only been receiving parts of it. But once those walls crumble the view goes on forever…in more ways than one. We can actually begin to ‘feel’ what is truly there instead of a vagueness in all we did emotionally, physically or spirituality. But that is the journey as we awaken, an appreciation of that love like nothing else. And yes, it brings tears to my eyes knowing what you have found is a very personal and profound moment. It has been a long journey to get to this moment Amy, finding you among so much. And of course, to attest to that, your love in your photography, and in fact every thing you do, will take on so much more meaning as you let this world go. And yes, thank you for your love…and I love you too Amy. Thank you for sharing an open heart xox 😀❤️🙏🏽

    1. Well!!! I finally arrived. LOL I’ve been quite the little busy bee.

      I like how you said “we … begin to “feel” what is truly there instead of a vagueness” …. That’s it exactly, Mark! I was so adamant on guarding that part of my heart that when situations arose concerning that part of my heart, I was not fully connecting. Yes it was a very personal and profound moment and because of my friend Rachel, I have been given even more freedom in the realm called love.

      I’ve gone up a notch or two on my journey …. there is a deeper sense of belonging and ease that wasn’t previously there. When the time comes for the teacher to appear, that teacher comes. Incredible how these things transpire, things you don’t even see coming.

      Honesty is the best policy hands down. I was guided to share this story from my life, for I feel strongly all of us have something to learn from it. Now I am adding to my actions the words that accompany those actions ….. love drenched words.

      That situation also it seems is relaxing my voice to say boldly those things I didn’t voice. If we sit still a bit and examine how we speak, we will know there are many occasions we don’t fully say what we would like to say, oh for many reasons. Today for example, I spoke words (via texting) that I hesitated previously to say yet today because they are truth, I said them. How the other person receives them, that is not the issue.

      So happy that you related to this post, dear friend. Thank you so very much for once again stopping by and leaving such an extraordinary comment. I appreciate and love you!! Much love to you! xo

      1. And much love to you also Amy. It is an exciting journey as we find us and become the thing we have always been looking for. That love and happiness…which wasn’t ‘out there’ but waiting to be found inside us. Take a bow dear lady, you have achieved the secret of life. We have ever doubted ‘us’ and only give out those conditions we had placed on ourselves. Once truly understood that wall of doubt comes down and we open. May that love ever enfold you in that openness Amy, and given out naturally as only unconditional love can xox 😀❤️🙏🏽

      2. This is how I am seeing this journey, Mark, which I shall share with you. A plane in the sky actually became a catalyst to what I now see. The sun is our Source and upon this Sacred Journey, we travel closer and closer to the sun (which along the way we got further away from) and in so doing we become closer to the child we were all those years ago ….. innocent, pure, connected, love. For that child is close to to Source, connected as ONE. When we return in a big loop back to that place, we are then free to move forward fully ourselves. We go back to the past to be in the future. How incredible is that? 🦋

  4. Reading your words dear Amy shows me that LOVE is bursting through the seams of people who are willing to share their hearts..
    It made me a little sad reading that it took some time for you to process those words.. I LOVE YOU..
    We have as Tim rightly says our vocabulary has been highjacked and distorted and we have been programmed into being Politically correct with our terminology and speech..

    Why should we be afraid of voicing our Love…
    There are so many variations of love… The Love of a Lover, the love of our Pets, the love of Nature, the Love of arts, the love of a brother and sister.. the love of a friend..

    Your hearts, your souls in that moment connected and that lady voiced her truth in an honest statement… That Her soul saw yours and she loved you for recognising hers.. and visa-versa..

    I had tears when I first read this Amy… and Tears also in that you were able to accept her love, as you opened up your own heart to accept more love within yourself..

    MUCH LOVE my friend.. ❤ ❤ ❤ And thank YOU, for sharing your heart and your wonderful Stunning Autumn views ❤

    1. Sue, the jolt that went through my being when those words were said, startled me to my core. They were a real Gift for they made me see how I had yet another door in my heart to open that I myself slammed shut as a child. Combine that with how much hurt came my way along my journey and that just reinforced that locked door.

      I have no fear in showing my love at all. It was in the actual saying of those words that was sparse (except for animals and Mother) that I knew needed changing. That door has been opened and will remain so. Listening to my Guidance I will know when and where and to whom to say those words to.

      Tears, my friend, have been with me a lot of late for it seems in the opening of that door, the Child is being seen more and acknowledged. I’ve become even more receptive to energy, more sensitive to others’, and the tears that had not been released are now doing so. To this day, I’m still walking out of the prison I was put into as a child. I am so so grateful to Rachel who saw me and was so moved by how I acted with her that those words were said. She changed my life in that moment. The next time I see her she is getting a huge hug from me!! Oh you know it!

      I promised myself that I would learn what love is for in living through what love is not, my soul knew that for survival to exist, love was the answer. And so this has been my journey since 1984.

      MUCH LOVE right back at you, dear Sue. You are very welcome for the share. There is no point in hiding the truth from myself or not sharing with others what I just learned about me. Honesty is the best policy!! xoxoxoxoxo

    1. Thank you, Kamal!!! November this year has been a truly miraculous Gift. It’s been warm and sunny most days and there are still as yet trees with leaves on them. That normally doesn’t happen. Perhaps Mother is balancing Herself!! OH how glorious to have color during the winter months AND to have winter lasting only 3 months versus 5 months as has been the case for many years. I do love you for who you are and what you do!!! Keep on shining! xo

  6. Your post deeply touched and inspired me Amy.
    I recently met up with a dear friend, one I hadn’t seen in over two years. Prior to that we’d been close but somehow during the turmoil and change of the past two years we veered apart. She began to ignore my messages and I became more confused as to our distance. But I continued to reach out. Finally one of my messages touched something in her and she reached out, we reconnected and finally met up again. Why am I telling you all this? Because when we met again and began talking, honest on all levels, I told her that love is stronger than anything. And that hurts, confusion and misunderstandings can be worked through when we feel deeply in our heart. And we both said those three words! Thank you my friend for sharing your experience and your thoughts. I so agree with you on so many levels. No wonder we have such a special connection. Beautiful photos too. Love you Amy. 💗🙏 xx

    1. Miriam!! I just knew sooner or later I would see you. LOL I LOVED your story! Thank you so much for sharing it. Love always wins even when the situation looks quite dire. I am so deliciously happy for you and your friend who have now reconnected. How incredible and heartwarming!

      Usually I am the listener in my personal life but today a friend of mine was for me. I poured from out of my saddened and troubled heart what was going on. In return, she reached out to me saying she completely understood and feels much like me and then she hugged me. Now that, Miriam, I did not see coming and at first I stiffened. And then I let go. Hugs have been so scarce and that is coming from someone who used to give them all the time. That is something else I will begin doing along with saying I love you to those I care for. I will hug them!

      This post was honest, raw, and real. I’m still realizing that there are doors within my heart that are crying to be opened. Upon opening this one, all around me is being affected and in a very positive light. Sure there are still bumps along the way as I deal with the dystopian world, but in my private realm, the love has gone up several notches.

      Keep on shining, Aussie Angel. We need you to stay high in spirit and clear in mind. I do love you, my dear friend. How lovely it would be to soon have a portal available so I could in an instant share some time with you. NO-thing is impossible and dream I shall!!! xoxoxox

        Have been so busy over here, I’ve never felt so overwhelmed with all that’s happening in my world and in our current move. But it’s all for good, I know that. Sending so much love your way. How wonderful it would be in meet through some kind of portal one day. I do believe 🙏❤️ Big hugs to you. xx

  7. Wow Amy this post deserves a 100% reward, I enjoyed reading it from start to finish. I am glad you have someone you connect with , it is good to have friends and yes saying those 3 words is awkward in life but some do mean it. Also, nice captured pictures there😊

    1. Yes, Bridgette, I agree with you that with age those three words seem to come less and less. It’s so easy to say “I love you” to one of the animals I know or perhaps one of my trees, but to humans? I’m changing that because there is such a need for people to hear those words. Life itself at times delivers its punches which truthfully can alter many things about ourselves. Love is who we are. When we face our Inner Shadow and wounds, and come to love even those places, you begin to realize you are love, it is your natural state of being. Thank you for stopping by …. it means a lot. Sending you so much love today!! xoxoxo
