Holding On

Good Morning!
Hard to imagine
it's the end of September!
It's chilly here in NJ.
The early mornings are dark,
and the late afternoon sun
settles in earlier every day.
The humming birds
have gone home for winter.
There's transition happening.
Leaves are turning
Limbs are falling
Pumpkins are popping up
I'm hoping for a little bit
of Indian Summer,
hoping for some continued
motorcycle fun,
flip-flop weather,
short sleeves and new blossoms!
Have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by!

Monday, Monday

"No pessimist ever discovered
the secrets of the stars,
or sailed to an unchartered land,
or opened a new heaven
to the human spirit."

Have a happy Monday and I hope
you're a bit inspired by the words of
Helen Keller.

To all of the Roman Candles Out There

"The only people for me are the mad ones,
the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk,
mad to be saved, desirous of everything
at the same time, the ones who never yawn,
or say a commonplace thing, but burn,
burn, burn, like faboulous roman candles
exploding like spiders across the stars
and in the middle you see the blue
centerlight pop and everyone goes

I met this lady a long,long time ago.
I think it was about 1969.
I went with a special someone
to pick her up at work.
I remember she said "And who's THIS?"
We became friends on the spot.

I have a special love for this lady.
She's funny.
She's beautiful.

She's my Mother-In-Law.
And today....
is her Birthday!

Thanks for all of the memories, Mom.
Happy Birthday!
I Love You,

Love Is In The Air

Today calls for celebration!
For these 3 kids.
Nan, Brad, and their kid!
It was the day
27 years ago
that they tied
the knot.
The Love Knot.
The I Do Knot.
Their knot has held tight.

Happy Anniversary, Nance and Brad,
from the bottom of my heart!
And, to quote Bruce, a couple of days
after his 60th birthday,
"We stood at the altar,
the gypsy swore our future
was right".

Watergate Park

A lake is the landscapes's
most beautiful and expressive feature.
It is earth's eye;
looking into which the beholder
measures the depth
of his own nature.

You Inside

"Life isn't about
finding yourself,
life is about
creating yourself."

excited about yourself!

This Little Light of Mine

We had company this weekend.
My Sister-In-Law and her daughter
were with us after they dropped
her boy off at camp.
A grief camp known as
Comfort Zone Camp.

A non-profit that specializes
in care for grieving children.

We attended the closing ceremony today.
There was clapping and cheering..
Singing and dancing.
Testimonials and memorials.
Tears and fears tossed into the bonfire.
Children of all sizes, all ages,
all backgrounds, all with one common trait.
Sadness and loss.
It's a place for kids to come and smile.
To form new friendships, and to laugh out loud.

The theme of the weekend was "Lighthouses".
The kids painted a keepsake to help guide them
through life's "storms".
Teamed up with "buddies" the kids
weathered their own storms.
They shared their fears,and their tears.
They were helped and they were healed.

As I sat in the audience
with tears running down my cheeks,
I was reminded once more
of the fragility of life.

At the final closing circle,
all of the campers released a balloon
with a message to their loved one.

With a special thank you to Adam.
Let your lite shine.
Comfort Zone Camp can be found at:

Sunset at the Gap

I had to jump out of the car
and snap this picture
on my way home from work today.
The most electrifying color
sinking into the
Delaware Water Gap.
Fire in the sky.
A magnificent sunset!

Gettin' My Kicks....

Stopped for lunch in Layton, NJ. Biking through Worthington State Park after a quick and chilly cruise up to Greenwood Lake, NY.
Wonder where we'll end up today!
Keep an eye out for bikes!

Moon Dance

Tonight we experience the Harvest Moon.
The brightest, the fullest.
30 minutes after sundown.

"May you have warm words
on a cool evening.
A full moon on a dark night,
and a smooth road
all the way
to your door."
