YOW, Surprise!

Oh. My. God. PAIN! Fire in my forearm ignited as I rapidly stepped back, dropping what I had been holding. I couldn’t believe what just happened for it had never before. And here I just got through saving a life when another of its kind stung me. Last Friday a yellowjacket …. think huge black … Continue reading YOW, Surprise!

A Day In The Life

The United States of America’s First Amendment  passed in 1789, protects my freedom of speech. If you don’t agree with something I wrote, keep in mind, this is my life, my story. Thank you. ~~~~~~~   While August is advancing steadily towards September with huge cloud formations in the sky above us, my cats and … Continue reading A Day In The Life

Pockets Of Hope

When I heard our libraries were finally reopened, my heart soared! However, the library I normally frequent continued to be closed so I chose to visit another library nearby.   What a miserable experience! A sterile environment is what I unknowing walked into where plastic shields separated patrons from employees. I saw most of the … Continue reading Pockets Of Hope

Everlasting Life

Hearing Hubby’s excited voice got my attention. He was babbling on about a cloud he had to capture. I saw him running out the door with his camera. In turn I grabbed my camera, joined him outside and began to shoot the exact cloud he was. What freedom to behold this wispy huge cloud in … Continue reading Everlasting Life

Clarification

When you do one thing and believe another, you know not peace, you know not Self.   When you think one thing and believe another you know not love, you know not Self.   When you speak one thing and believe another, you know not truth, you know not Self.   When you write one … Continue reading Clarification

Against All Odds

Despite forces that hit with deadly force, She insisted, persisted to fight back. Time and time again her lovely head drooped with what would seem defeat, only to fool those forces whose intent was to kill. She went within. There She gathered her power, and waited, waited for the opportunity to again stand tall. Quietly … Continue reading Against All Odds

Disjointed Realities

*Play music while you read.*   Beep. Beep. From around the corner while cleaning out a kitty litter pan, I heard beeps. Instinctively knowing what was happening, I dropped what I was doing and rushed to the kitchen. Sure enough my husband had not only stopped the food timer I had running but he set it … Continue reading Disjointed Realities

Nesting Week 6

Hubby and I have been like kids now and again. We are laughing. And did he ever pull a good one over on me! He came home one day from grocery shopping, exclaiming, “Honey, you wouldn’t believe what I saw! People are now wearing scuba diving masks!” I looked at him, shaking my head, and … Continue reading Nesting Week 6

Teeny Tale

Groaning out loud, I wouldn’t give up despite my aching arms as I maintained my long lens almost vertically towards the sky. I had spotted a teeny bird flitting from branch to branch with no stop in sight. I was attempting to follow this bird with my long lens. I had quietly paired up with … Continue reading Teeny Tale

Do Not Give Up

Even when something seems too far out of reach, just about impossible, don’t let that stop you from at least going for it. If you do nothing by giving up, you may well have passed up a golden opportunity that would give you something you thought unreachable. That happened to me yesterday. Here I was … Continue reading Do Not Give Up

BIG Change

I must have asked the right question for within one hour of that question answers began to rapidly come in. As I was feeding Rusty yesterday morning, who hasn’t been eating the brand of food I’ve been feeding our cats, in my mind the words went something like this, “Rusty is only 8 years old. … Continue reading BIG Change

The Gift

Just last week, I “happened” to cross paths with two women while in a forest. Within that conversation, I received an invite to join them and other women every Tuesday to hike in the woods. I noted the time and told them, despite the time slot for the hike which normally would find me taking care … Continue reading The Gift
