Shine upon my Day

It is so hard to pass up unusual beauty when I see it. "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder" I tried to capture the very radiance from within His creations, especially the vibrant yellow as it shouts out to me. Nature is amazing, even when it tries hard to look merely casual. A rudbeckia with the seemingly prickly stem as it cradles the flower.

Is it mine eyes that betray me or is there beauty in such simplicity? The simple things in life bring me great joy. My first coffee in the morning. Watching the sunrise. Simple and yet, so gratifying. Do you have a simple joy?


Listen to the sound of splendor as the dark steals into the day. Oh, beauty!

A flower's appeal is in its contradictions — so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance, so small in size yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect ~Terri Guillemets


Have I told you lately how you shine upon my day?
Reminding me
That all is well with the world


There must be a flower. Always. To color my world. #alwaysaflwer I am not sure I would have it any other way. And just like that, this post is over. Come back tomorrow and I will do it again.

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.





The Naming of Cats

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
