Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

Snails for hire



















I arise, feeling slightly refreshed from a night's rest.
Early morning finds me at my picnic table.
The last of the plants tell me where they wish to live.

My apologies for being absent from my blogs, and from commenting on your blogs. This week I'm better but not where I want to be, health wise. Keep your fingers crossed that this will be the week, I catch up on being me again!

Many are taking vacation, and some are taking blogging breaks.  To those who leave before I get a chance to speak with you - I hope you have a safe and fun break, (smile).

    1. Thanks, Liz! I have green plastic bottle with watering caps to put out. Just haven't done it yet. I put them next to plants to do a slow drip.

      It gets hot on my patio, but I took a drop cord with a fan, creating my own breeze when I need it, Ha!
