I love the internet for finding interesting photos.
Can you do magic?  I bet this dog can…


Looks like that leg is going to be gone!


A joke between me and my husband – when the sun goes down, it gets dark…
Looks like it’s almost gone here:



The sands of time – yep, that’s gone too – my childhood that is…


I can think of plenty that’s gone – people I’ve loved, memories, time.  And things you lose after a while like that sock in the drier that you never find…sigh.

What’s not gone?  Love, happiness, magic.  Right now – the snow.  Oh, and those lyrics you can’t seem to make go away from that annoying song in your head.  Bet you wish that was gone!  ~Wink~

Your Interior

This photo is so gorgeous!  Interior, yes – this is a nice visual for that word for me.  Living in a place where we have *real* winter – where there is snow on the ground right now, and we have icy conditions and things are “dead” but not really…where people are crabbing about the winter and can’t wait for it to be over – this picture shows beautifully how I feel inside.

I found this too:

That also speaks to interior for me – the place inside that you go to be sheltered from the outside.  Outside negativity, outside from the cold, inside away from the bombardment of thoughts of others, where you are safe from being inundated with negativity (unless your inside is negative too).  I like my interior, the one in my mind that I create regardless of what is outside and around me.  My happy place.

What does yours look like?  Are you happy with it?  Is it a place of freedom for you to explore your creative side without fear or interference?  Or do you avoid going internally because you don’t like what you find there?

A Hopeful Dog Lover

Look at that face!  So cute!!!  I have puppy/dog fever as of late.  It is all I can do to not look at pictures of little furry babies with longing.  I found a place I plan on getting my next companion from and I’m hopeful that he or she will be everything I am expecting.  This place specializes in training and breeding labradors, so my next companion and family member will come home with skills as well as breeding.  I’m not a snob that won’t go to the pound, I currently have a dog (lab mix) that has been with me for years who came from the pound, but she is also very old and won’t be with me much longer.  I just wanted my next friend to have been trained already and have some skills because even though they are cute, new puppies are a handful.  I found this photo with those eyes, and that face – and thought, this is probably what my future will look like!  The treats, the longing looks and the wagging tail…I don’t think I have ever been disappointed by any of my pets really, but for the love of dogs – I am very hopeful that the next one in my life is as sweet as this one looks!

Nope to the Mope

Eeyore, the professional mope.  (Okay, I know he’s not meant to be that, but you get the idea.)  I once saw a post(er) on facebook that showed Eeyore and it had something to the effect of, no one left him out of their plans because he was sad, they just accepted him as he was.  That is such a nice thought isn’t it?  Until it’s real life and you are around someone who does nothing but mope to get attention.  Who drains all the life force Continue reading “Nope to the Mope”

Soul Level Renewal

We are not in the time of year for renewal, not in the sense that many would think.  Most of us associate renewal with the beginnings of life – with birth, or re-birth – with spring.  When everything is cropping back up from the ground and where we are through our senses experiencing the new-ness once again.

Renewal is life giving to me, Continue reading “Soul Level Renewal”

To Pillage – No More

I have had what many times has felt like people pillaging my thoughts, ideas, and insights…where others have taken credit for ideas that were mine, for work that I have done, or for insights I have shared with them in conversation.  There is always a part of me that feels very cheated by this, but worse – that feels violated Continue reading “To Pillage – No More”

Shining Your Festive Light

Today promises to be a festive day for most.  It’s Christmas day, and many are opening their presents, spending time with their relatives and friends, and sharing joy and love for each other.

I say most, because some are gritting their teeth during this time.  Others are sad and lonely.  As much as there is literally a palpable, tangible, “love in the air” that is the Spirit of Christmas Continue reading “Shining Your Festive Light”
