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.

Favorite time of year ~

The air is slowly changing
There's a sweater on the chair ~
Long walks are very pleasing
As I breathe the morning air ~

The squirrels will soon be gathered
In nests, high in the trees ~
On the ground, eventually slathered
Will be autumn's colored leaves ~

What is your favorite time of year?

Recently this happened with me. In less than twenty-four hours, I answered, 'no.' I could have said yes, but there's that thing about "being true to one's self." I have boundaries that I do not cross - maybe it makes life a bit limiting, but it's an honest assessment too. In short, if I deceive myself, I might also be deceiving another. Isn't that cruel, and undeserved by the receiving person? You know it, and so do I.

I think the poem called, 'The Serenity Prayer' will always be helpful.

God ~ grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change.
       ~ courage to change the things I can.
And ~ wisdom to know the difference.

Have a great evening, (smile).


During my post on dancing as exercise, a friend and fellow blogger, Bazza at To Discover Ice mentioned "shagging." In the UK shagging is something different than the US shagging. Do not be alarmed.

Luckily another friend, and fellow blogger, Jo on Food, Life, and a Scent of Chocolate knew the difference!

I love to shag but you  really need a partner to dance. As a kid I would tie a long scarf to my bedroom door knob and dance away! I should give it a go, huh?!

Okay, let's watch this video of the 2014 "Shagging at the Beach" winners! Music by Credence Clearwater Revival...
