Juris Doctorate

I've been away for a little while.
My daughter received an award last Friday.
A most impressive 'Juris Doctorate';
Her law degree from New England Law, Boston.

I was hanging around the Wang Theatre.
Surrounded by the friends and families
and professors of 309 graduate students of NESL.

My heart and my eyes were swollen
with pride and happiness.
And joy.

I had shivers
as soon as I caught a glimpse
of her in her cap and gown,
a complimentary honors cord,
(Cum Laude)
her signature smile,
and that sparkle in her eyes!

So, now her life Journey continues.
She's in a far away place,
But forever close in our hearts.

Congratulations once again, Tiff!
You took the dare. You won.

The Journey

Sometimes it's about
blind curves.
Gravel roads.
Bet yet, on either side
of that annoyance
there is
beauty from a voice
that beckons:
"Come...have a taste.
Follow my direction.
I dare you."

To those of you that have dared
through the blind curves and the potholes;
You've been down hard roads. Dirt roads. Dusty trails.
You've known frustration and fear.
You've walked scared. You've cried yourself to sleep.
But you kept walking.
And now,
It's time to
Walk and taste your new world!
Spit out the hate and bitterness.
Embrace only Goodness and Truth.
Make good Change.
And more than anything,
Profess Love.

Congratulations ..
Your Journey is waiting.

With all of my love and hugs,

along the Delaware River

Get your motor running...

Special thanks to Tim for the iphone pic!

From Flowers to Floods

After all of the bragging that I've done about the beautiful weather and the abundance of blossoms, we're now in for a week of drenching rain! It reminds me of the days when my children were infants, and I'd brag that they were never sick, next thing I knew, I was in the pediatrician's office paying double the fee for a Sunday visit! UGH.
On a brighter note, the wild poppies are in bloom now, and I'm hoping to take some photos before their tissue-like petals are saturated and gone. Their vibrant colors make such a splashing presence amongst the new Kelly green backdrop. I am particularly smitten with the wild red. So, in my travels, I'm on a Poppy mission today!
Just one more thing...the Earth will be celebrating a full moon tonight..enjoy the month of May's "Flower Moon". Perfect!
Maybe where you live there will be a cloudless night sky!

Happy Tuesday!
With love and hugs.

As Promised

After what seems was the longest and coldest Winter on record in my mind,
Spring has greeted the Northeast with an abundant display of beauty!
The flowering trees are spectacular.
From the Magnolias and the Red Buds to the Kwanzans and Weeping Cherries, to the Lilacs,the Apple Blossoms and now the Wisteria, Mother Earth has come alive in a rainbow of pinks and lavenders.
The Wisteria blossoms are prolific this year and they peak out from the most obscure and hidden little peek-a-boo locations with a burst of color and perfume. Their delicate displays stop me in my tracks!

Have a beautiful day,
Enjoy the blossoms that surround us!
With love and hugs.

Blogger has had some technical difficulties.
Too many posts, poems, people and places.
My recent posts are lost in cyber space.
But I'll be back,
With some wisteria!
Happy Friday, everyone!
With love & hugs.

The Daily Love

Step into
the biggest version
of yourself.
Let go
of limiting thoughts
other people's opinions.
your light

Your Creative Place

'The creative
is the place
where no one else has ever been.
You have to leave the city
of your comfort
and go into the wilderness
of your intuition.
What you'll discover
will be wonderful.
What you'll discover
is yourself.'
~Alan Alda~

For You, Mom....

"The moment a child is born,
the mother is also born.
She never existed before.
The woman existed, but the mother, never.
A mother is something
absolutely new."


To A Beautiful
Mother's Day Weekend!
With Love and Hugs.

A nice, bright day,
with a gentle blue sky,
and big, puffy clouds.
Gentle swaying trees
adorned with the most tender baby leaves.
And the return of joyous little song birds
fluttering branch to branch,
attempting to nest
in their old favorite hideouts.
Abundant splashes of color...
The first hint of fragrance
from ancient lilacs.
And deep pink Dogwood blossoms
from the deep forest woodlands.
Ahhh.....The glory of Spring!

Here's to a beautiful Friday!
With love and hugs.

Love Liberates

"I am grateful to have been loved,
and to be loved now,
and to be able to love,
because that liberates.
Love liberates.
It doesn't just hold-that's ego.
Love liberates. It doesn't bind.
Love says "I love you. I love you if you're in China.
I love you if you're across town.
I love you if you're in Harlem.
I love you.
I would like to be near you.
I'd like to have your arms around me.
I'd like to hear your voice in my ear.
But that's not possible now,
so I love you. Go."
~Maya Angelou~

Happy Anniversary, Wes.
I Love You.
