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.

The Garden of the Red Birds

While inventorying my latest garden for the next layer of beauty ~
I felt the need to sit down,
enjoy a moment of rest.

A light breeze moved my hair about, I brushed away the strands ~
In that moment,
I saw him.

He on the grass dancing, almost prancing, stopping to see ~
if she, interested in he,
was glancing?

And she was ~

I am a Bonehead!

Okay so I finally posted for this bloghop I don't even have all of the particulars but it's understandable... in fact... it's great because this is a fresh bonehead experience for me!!!

Cherdo is having a bloghop.... called the "Bonehead Blog Hop," and right now that's  all I know. (Forgive me, Cherdo.)

You see I was out in the yard, gardening away. Having discovered that my flower bed at the studio window needed attention, I've been plugging away there since 7 a.m. this morning.

There was plenty of time to come on and respond to comments in a couple of hours. Right? But then I thought to grab a snack, and while munching, I'd have a peek at the old blog. EGAD!!!! It was lunch time and I hadn't even posted for the Bonehead Blog Hop!!!

I hadn't even remembered it. Oh wow, what a bonehead thing to do...

I promise to post all the linky credits and such next hopping time!!! Oh Cherdo, I'm so sorry.

Home ~ The Heart of My Reflection

A-Z  ~
Proved to be,
More than I could see.
I chose my home
To be a zone,
Where heart takes on ~
The world that's me.
*    *    *    *    *

In a place where I have been diligently working, I found my A-Z challenge theme. How much heart have I placed in this gift of inheritance from my parents? Practically every day, I am working on a list of projects to improve or enhance where my heart resides. I call it home.

What will I be taking with me, now that the challenge is over for this year? From my 'blog-home' I take lovely new friends, and many returned, cherished old ones. I take your lively, spontaneous interactions! Each comment was a tool for my home to flourish by. I thank you, (smile).

I take with me, new ideas to present a happier 'blog-home' for all to visit. Along with that I have gained new organizational methods. New thoughts on making time count by making each word count. So much more than this simple post reveals. And remember, I have been reading your A-Z posts too; each one had it's own charm, and tidbit of joy! I wish for all of you ~ inspiration, like you've given me, (smile)

Special thank you to Arlee Bird, and Alex J. Cavanaugh! This is a great thing you've got here! I hope everyone felt your presence, encouragement, and commitment as I did. 

In conclusion, I leave you with 26 links.
