A-Z Archive: M! Mothering

28 Mar

Mothering:

“I will love you forever,

I’ll like you for always,

as long as I’m living,

my Mother you’ll be”

Robert Munsch

Anyone who has read this book has probably not put it down without grabbing a tissue first.  My mom follows her heart each and every day and sometimes that causes her to make tough decisions.  This weekend was a difficult one in which she had to trust her heart that with her help a friend in need will come through the worst of times.  It is hard to trust yourself in these situations when the trust is actually 100% in someone else’s behaviors and actions… your mind doubting what your heart is telling.  I love my mom for her courage and willingness to hold the hand of our dear friend during this time. 

As long as I’m living, proud of my mother, I’ll be.

A to Z Archive: L: Lyrical Lake

22 Mar

On this Lazy morn,

Out during Low Light,

Looked through the Lavish Leaves,

Rested against the Lazy Ledge, 

Waited for the Lifting fog,

and dreamed into the Lyrical Lake.

Attempting to include some poetry every now and then. Elementary at the start, but hopefully… eventually… I will be able to express what I’m really trying to say!

A-Z Archive: K: Keenly Knavish

14 Mar

Alligator

Keen: Having a sharp cutting edge or point. Marked by intellectual quickness and acuity. Sharp. Vivid. Strong

Knave: An unprincipled crafty fellow. Deceitful and unreliable scoundrel.

Hard to find inspiration for K… while researching I did fine that in fact, in the whole of the top 1000 most commonly used words in the English language, there are only a total of 9 K words!!  No wonder…

I think he’s smiling and only he knows why!

A to Z Archive: J: J…J…J… Jackpot

8 Mar

 

Triple Jack Jackpot

Triple Jack Jackpot 

To see or win a jackpot in your dream suggests that you are too impulsive and relying too much on fate. Alternatively, the dream means that you need to take a chance in life in order to reap the rewards.  (From Dream Dictionary)

However, this photo is proof that this Jackpot wasn’t a dream… In an instant though, the both Dream Dictionary Definitions of Jackpot were spot on for me..shuffling around a bit:

 “Being impulsive I took a chance in life and as fate would have it, I reaped the rewards!” 

May you all take chances and fate back you up!

A to Z Archive: I: an Instance of Intimacy

5 Mar

Intimate Illusion

“Love is a force more formidable than any other.  It is Invisible- it cannot be seen or measured- yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment.” _BdA

A to Z Archive: H: Hammock Harmony

“It was the in between time, before day leaves and night comes, a time I’ve never been partial to because of the sadness that lingers in the coming and going.” _SMK

“It is impossible to walk alone at twilight and not find beauty”_MKR

After playing with these pictures they began to remind me of the old “Visit Florida” Postcards from a while back.  I wish people would send postcards more often! In our hurried current society, it is so rare to even receive a handwritten letter any more.  I think I am going to make a point to send at least one letter or postcard each week this month.  Someone has to keep the USPS in business right?  Anyone want to join me? 

 

A to Z Archive: G: Gulfcoast Invite

Gulfcoast Invite

“It is nothing but Grand, my friend, where the water meets the sand… that which makes it even better is a cold drink in hand!”_mB

“Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are Gone.”_anon

Struggled with G.  Decided to post a picture of my favorite beach in Florida along the Gulf Coast of the Panhandle.   Added some effects using Microsoft Picture Manager.  Can’t wait to get my hands on Photoshop one day! 

 

A-Z Photo Archive: F: Faithful Forever

28 Feb

 

 

Faithful Forever

A poem of F:  

Formidable fortress

Formerly fabricated

Fixed foundation

Firm frame

Flawless faltering

Functional freedom

Faded facade

Fostering familiarity

Fervent fidelity

Forever

 

 by mB

 

There is so much behind the words that I have written here.  F proved to be the perfect letter for a poem about the structure built by hand long ago and withstanding time and all other elements. I don’t know if it would ruin the poem to explain each line… I think that it might.  But if you truly reflect on each description you’ll see what is meant and hopefully agree that F- words, aren’t always bad words.

 

A-Z Archive: E: Escape, Refresh!

24 Feb

“All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality- the story of escape.  It is the only thing that interests us all and at all times, how to escape.”_ ACB 

“The pause that refreshes.”_1929 CocaCola

At this rate my A-Z Archive should catch up to the group by the end of next week!  (Others currently at H moving into I)

A-Z Archives: D: Day is Done

23 Feb
Sunset Fishermen
Night, the beloved.  Night, when words fade and things come alive.  When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again.  When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree. _ AdSE
 
AdSE is one of my favorite authors and this quote fits this photo perfectly.
