A New Year

This image is one I posted on December 31, 2012 when I was doing a photo a day for the whole year. It applies now just as it did then. A simple wish that you, my fellow bloggers and faithful readers of this blog, will have a most prosperous and wonderful New Year. May it be filled…

Lyrics in My Head

Lately hubby and I have been listening to Pandora radio and have found some really good stations. We set up an instant mix of some of our favorites like Michael Buble, Yanni, Nat King Cole, The Piano Guys, Flamenco Guitar, Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, George Strait, and some really classic oldies. The 60’s was a great…

Young at Heart

The Daily Post prompt today posed a question about how we will stay young at heart and our thoughts on aging. In answer to those questions, here’s my take on aging: I’m as young as I feel. True. Some days I feel younger than I am in human years. My soul is ageless; eternal. For…

Short Story

One day a man who had become set in his ways travels into the future. At first he’s disoriented, to the point of becoming terrified.  He feels like he’s in a void … a seamless space, like being in a completely darkened room. Suddenly, he hears a beautiful, loving voice. “Hello, Edward. Welcome.” “What? Where am…

Wild Pear

Today’s image is a picture of a picture, taken in the restroom of the Wild Pear restaurant in downtown Salem. I love the downtown area because there are so many historic buildings. Rightly so, because Salem is the capitol city of Oregon. This particular building was established in the 1800’s as a cigar store. Lovely…

Sharing His Gift

Recently I watched Andrea Bocelli perform the music from Hollywood movies on PBS. He was amazing as usual and shares his gift with the world. I watch his performances every chance I can. The PBS series of Great Performances never disappoints when people with his kind of talent are in the spotlight. I took this…

A Good Laugh

When I came across this image today on my Instagram feed, I couldn’t stop laughing, so of course I posted it on FB. Don’t we all need a good laugh these days? Of course some will say I’m being irreverent, but how can I be irreverent of a myth? But just in case, don’t show…

Parrot Head

Many years ago my son took me to a Jimmy Buffett concert. He and I are both big fans. Jimmy’s fans are called Parrot heads. Yep, that’s me! When I need a mood lifter, I listen to one of his songs. One of my favorites is Creola from his Floridays album:  Be good to yourself…

Many Branches; One Tree

Many branches; one tree. Would you agree that this describes humanity? Aren’t we all connected? I have to believe we are. I took this photo while outside waiting for Daisy to do her business. (Either hubby or I go out with her when it’s dark because there’s been a raccoon roaming around the neighborhood lately,…

In the Light

Do you think it’s important to stay centered in the light? I sure do. It seems the energies of gloom and doom are being foisted upon us from all mainstream media sources. Once in a while I turn on the TV to check out a movie or to see the local weather and I get…
