What thing of beauty, in my midst? Alas, her heart is merely a reflection of a beautiful soul. Yet, they compare not to the light reflected from a thousand stars, emerging straight from your soul.


Oh, the love whispers in your ear and breathes on your heart. Will I dare reach out to touch your soul, igniting the fire in your heart?

Soft whispers from your lips
A gentle kiss
Is it too much, too much

As always, there must be a flower to color my world. #alwaysaflower

All I have are my words, armed in my mind, written in pen, stand by stand. Oh, yes. Still by hand. It has a different feel. Altered not by keys, backspace, and delete, I write, erase, tear it to pieces and start all over again. And again.


It’s my way. I walk out to the deep end of the page and dive right in.

Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Don't ever forget what a wonderful world we live in, people. Some days, it is not as easy to see,just how wonderful it really is. For me, I try to do my part. Kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.


Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st,
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Shakespeare

Thank you so much, Joan, for so many wonderful comments you leave me. Have a most beautiful evening, coming right up!

Of course you, little Ms Sunshine !

You spread happiness and joy wherever you go.

The world needs MORE of that !

Thank you, but, in fact, I can say the same about you, my little elf friend. Always sharing a piece of you with others. ❤ One of the reasons you deserve the best!

!tip

No, no.... this is just about YOU !

ha ha....

I feel like an elf. Today the thought crossed my mind that since it's "covid" maybe I should decorate for Christmas now. I'm kidding, I won't do it, I mean, that would be bizarre even for this Christmas nut ! ... but I still thought about it. Can you imagine having to keep all that stuff dusted for months ??!!

You dust??

Occasionally..... LOL dusting up a cloud...... coughcough*

Oh My ! A dragon ! I don't do Halloween now. The last two neighborhoods I lived in, there weren't but 1 or 2 trick or treaters... here none, but that's ok, cause I don't care much for opening my door to masked people..... of course now.... covid.... mask.... eh.....

I use to do it big though. We did a haunted yard for several years that people could walk through.... it was grand and SO much fun !

Those were the days.

My community is gated, so everyone that is in there belongs there, you know, for the most part. Also, we all drag our BBQs out front and grill hot dogs and cookies and juice. We have a block party of sorts. Nobody uses their cars, just walk around. Oh, yes. Wine is involved.

If I lived where there were no kids, I wouldn't go through the effort either. It is a lot of fun! I am pretty sure we aren't doing anything this year, especially trick or treating. But, I will still decorate a little. :)

Kidding. Trust me, I thought long and hard about it, but because I have this giant three-headed dragon for Halloween, I just couldn't! I bought him at the end of the season last year for 1/2 price, so I needed to see if he was okay. How awkward would it be to bring it back a year later because it wouldn't blow up?

Well!!! He was taller than my two-story foyer! LOL It was like trying to squeeze thirty people in a mini cooper. Anyway, the kids in the neighborhood love my Halloween decorations and take pictures with them.

My giant pumpkin died after 15 years last year. RIP Punkin!
