Quarter Century Man

So, 25 years ago today,
I welcomed to the world
a smiling baby boy.
I will always remember
the joy in my heart.
His precious smile.
His good nature.
The blue sky and sunshine.
A perfect April day.
A perfect April son.

Happy Birthday, Tim!
Here's to A "hole in one" kinda' year ahead!
With grand slams galore!
With love and hugs.

Love Day

With all the pomp and circumstance, the sea of hats, the splashes of colour, the military garb, the fine horsemanship and tack, the royal fanatics, the Queen Bee, the magnificent architecture, and Kate's smile, the world watched as two became ONE.

Happy Friday. With love & hugs. xo

A Minor Bird

"I have wished a bird would fly away,
And not sing by my house all day;

Have clapped my hands at him from the door
When it seemed as if I could stand no more.

The fault must partly have been in me
The bird was not to blame for his key

And of course there must be something wrong
In wanting to silence any song."

~Robert Frost~

Took this picture through
a screened window,
but you get the idea!
Happy Tuesday.
Happy Birthday, John James Audobon
Enjoy the birds!
With love and hugs.

Earth Day 2011

"Our kinship with Earth
must be maintained,
we find ourselves
in the center
of our own
paved-over souls
with no way out."

"If you've never been thrilled
to the edges
of your soul
by a flower in spring bloom,
maybe your soul
has never
been in bloom."
~Terri Guillemets~

Happy Wednesday!

Be not afraid
of going slowly,
be only afraid
of standing still.

Soft Pink

A soft pink
kind of morning.
Soft color
Earth's magic.
Soft fragrance.
A full pink moon.
Glad hearts.
Gentle Blue sky;
and Joan Baez:
"Instead of getting hard ourselves
and trying to compete,
women should try and give their
best qualities to men-
bring them to softness,
teach them how to cry."

To a beautiful new week
full of promise and soft pink.
With love and hugs.

Petals and a Plate

And above all,
watch with glittering eyes
the whole world around you
the greatest secrets
are always hidden
in the most
unlikely places.

Happy Friday!
With love and hugs.

Fire and Forsythia

There's a kiss of Spring
in the air.
But, Old Man Winter,
he lurks in the distance.
Making it ever so clear
that he's content in the Northeast
And he doesn't want to
just yet.

With love and Hugs.

Love that Henry

i will seek elegance
rather than luxury,
refinement rather than fashion.
i will seek to be worthy
more than respectable,
wealthy and not rich.
i will study hard,
think quietly,
talk gently,
and act frankly.
i will listen to the stars and birds,
babes and sages,
with an open heart.
i will bear all things cheerfully,
do all things bravely,
await occassions,
and hurry never.
in a word i will let the spiritual,
unbidden and unconscious
grow up through the common.

surrounds my life,
informs my being,
and hopefully
captures my seeing.
