Why can't I get a link?


Grandma! Dance!

I watch her, this new creature who is almost three, four days a week. Have been having some recent joint issues, so it's difficult for this little sweetie to understand why, when she flips on the local radio  station at 7 am, Grandma says: "In a little bit, honey." She laughs and says: "C'mon Grammy." :-) What a blessing she is. My first grandchild and every day I wonder how the time passed so quickly that I am now here. Here in this point in time. How? I do not understand and yet I thank God for each and every single day. Home has come to me, unexpectedly. I am learning. So more. Lots more on Grandma and her gem to come.

"Once upon a time and here upon the earth, there lived a woman who lost her home, then found it.  She unpacked true and real expressions, for they had been the essence of who she was and she used them every moment of every day. She unearthed resentment from the cold beneath, wiping away the moth and rust, the corruption that came from storing away as opposed to dealing with and embracing.  She used the pain thereof to feed her hungry fire and give birth to creative endeavors. 'There, that feels better,' she smiled, realxing while gratitude warmed every corner and filled the air with purpose and dignity. And although everyone out there seemed to wonder, she held fast to the whispers of truth and love, referring always to the original blueprint, or consulting with the ultimate designer.

She could sing again, dance again, and she found the air to breathe and...although she could see only part of the way, at least she could see warriors on the hollside and took comfort in the fact that she was not alone in her battle with the choices of life. This home, full of laughter and smiles and good tears and imaginings gradually brimmed with light. That light spread from home to home and soul to soul and filled each today with the promise of tomorrow and the unique and thoughtful lessons of yesterday.

Once upon a time and here upon the earth, there lived a woman who lost her home..."

Thanks all. Happy Sunday. :-)

Lost Words...

So how 'bout this? I wrote a song, a good one, of course, but as most of us do, we etch those words hurriedly onto anything that will accept such: napkins, coffee filters (yes, really, I've used them), anything. And for the life of me, I can only find the last half of the song. Geez! Ah well.

So I'm on the hunt big time. Happy Election day all you people!

Happy, Happy Tuesday!!

Hmm. Well, the sun appears to be peaking through the cloud cover. That's nice. Perhaps it will. How nice, that, right?

Anyway, so my sister turned 50 on Friday and the surprise party that her hubby and kids were trying to pull off, worked out. Lots of people, lots of food, tons of laughs, of course, and some singing, some dancing, some imbibing. :-) Oh yeah.

Oh yes, and if any of you many followers out there want to know that answers to the joke questions I threw out there (Donna, it's still only you--hey, there's a song called that, right? "Only you...can make my...hmm, hmm, hmm"not sure of the words there.)

Okay here they are:

What's the shortest book in the world? (Suspense, suspense!) Right you are!!! The answer is: What men know about women. Woo-hoo...


What did God say after he created man? (C'mon, this is just common sense here all my peops!!!) Right you are again!!! Answer: I can do better.

So, that's worth a smile at least today, right? Smile, it builds strong bones and teeth. :-) some dark chocolate at least once a day. It boosts brain power AND helps the circulatory system. Okay?

Going, going...gone for now. :-)

The MCL woman.

I'm a Gleek....

So, I have to admit right here, right now, that I am a Gleek. What's a gleek, you ask. It is someone, as far as I can tell, who is like sorta, kinda, really hooked on the show "Glee" and when it airs you cannot pull yourself away for any reason....WHATsoever. So one of my favorite songs it this: which I have posted. Goosebumps. Always look for goosebumps. And be messy, crazy, lovely.; Yikes...Yum. Hmm....:-)

He's 75...and still going.

So there he was. Immersed in video/sound equipment and asking me if I'd like to come by and learn the new cam and edit from it the wedding photos that he'd taken. " Sure, I could do that," I said, "some day next week, I can be here, to uh...learn it all." Then he goes into the stuff. His water distiller which he hopes to some day have "out there" and on the market. He created it; he creates. Still at 75, he continues to hope and dream in the creative endeavor. "That's probably crazy," he says. "Nope, not at all," I say, "It keeps you going, creating, hoping, dreaming." And he looks at me and smiles. I don't think anyone has said that to him yet, at this point, and so I'm glad I have.

I will be there, next week. I will be video editor and I will learn. I will create. I will appreciate the process that began it all... long ago. The Creator created. In six days and his most amazing creation was that of man.

So speaking of that, I have couple jokes here. After all: "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine," right? :-)

What is the thinnest book in the world? (If you think you know, let me know, I"ll post the answer Saturday.)

And...What did God say after He created Adam? (think, guys, think!!!)

Okay...I gotta run. Remember: Each day is a choice and if you listen carefully in the pre-dawn backstage, you might here something close to...a kiss from the Creator. You might even feel it fresh upon the front lobe of your brain and in the canyons of your heart.
