the winds of change

The first rose of spring has opened her petals and fairly shouted RED to the universe. We have many rose bushes, red, of course, and peach and yellow and white and pink. They are strong, independent, living creatures with purpose and joy and love to share with one another. They are beauty, and I enjoy [...]

only believe

My dreams are brightly colored movies that I live in, with all five, or six, senses in working order. It hasn’t been like this for me always, and I ascribe the change to my senior citizen brain.

My dreams are so real that I don’t feel like I am dreaming. They are usually pleasant, and [...]

if only that . . .
Daydreams and wishes are wasted hours
today is all we have,
this very moment,
right now
is all that we can truly

the rest is stuff,
and expectations.
If you must love,
don’t spend [...]

lost baby

Eventually this first-out-baby hopped down and bounced across the patio, out onto the grass, and under a bush. He wasn’t easy to spot, since his coloring blended with the lower branches. I [...]

timeless beauty

I am so glad I didn’t let an abuser convince me that it wasn’t worth living.

Today is a lovely day. This is my only today, this one day that is mine today. The only moment I have is this one. Right now. Right this very moment.
