You Are


You are my sunrise

you are the moon

you are the wispy clouds in a sky of blue


You are my sunset

you are the stars

you’re where my dreams fly when they traverse afar

Fire in the Sky

Sky on fire

a new day dawns

burning with possibilities

Each morning when I arrive at work and pull into my space in the upper level of the parking ramp, I get to watch just as the sun comes up.  Even amidst the concrete and all of the other uninspiring man-made objects of the landscape before me, its beauty takes my breath away…


Wishing you beautiful and breathtaking moments today…

And for those of you here with me in the US, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving too!

Music Monday


A beautiful original piece by my daughter…



It’s been several years since she’s done anything with her music, so listening to this makes me feel a bit melancholy.  But some beautiful things have happened in our lives since then – my precious granddaughter for one!  So that touch of melancholy is also mingled with deep gratitude…


Thanks for listening, have a beautiful Monday!

“We are mosaics-

pieces of light, love, history, stars-

glued together

with magic and music and words.”

~ Anita Krizzan


I came across the above quote the other day while out shopping with my daughter and granddaughter and it brought tears to my eyes.  I don’t know why, but it just really struck a chord.

I’ve been running a bit on empty these days, working at two different jobs and only having one day off per week.  But I have found a few moments here and there along the way to fill my tank.  Coming across this quote was one of them, it stopped me right in my tracks  – I don’t ever want to get so busy that I lose sight of what a miraculous gift life truly is…  Every. Single. Breath…

Wishing you moments of beauty, awareness and discovery as you go through this day…

This Golden Road


Freshly fallen leaves crunch beneath my feet

arousing that delightful autumn scent

the sun is warm, the air cool and crisp

my heart is merry and my senses come alive

as I mosey along this golden road

Autumn’s Confetti


At the peak of their beauty, the trees threw a party

in celebration of a year teeming with life, growth and beauty


All of nature was invited to attend the glorious spectacle of vibrant color

as the trees took center stage


But when the wind arrived, gusting in, as the wind tends to do

the party was suddenly over


leaving behind

autumn’s colorful confetti

That darn wind, blowing all of the beautiful leaves off the trees!  But I have to admit, the leaves look sorta pretty on the ground too – like confetti!  😊


There is still lots of beautiful fall color in my area, and I’ve been enjoying autumn’s party.  But we have snow in the forecast for tomorrow.   Okay, who invited snow?  Snow is NOT invited to the party – no admittance until after October!  Sigh… autumn is much too short a season…


Let us seize the day… and make it beautiful!
