Everyone’s Face Tells A Story

This is me, scars, wrinkles, freckles, age spots and all. (I even think my lazy eye might be making a comeback!) I would never have plastic surgery because my face tells the story of my life. I have deep smile lines because I love to laugh and smile. I have freckles and age spots becauseContinue reading “Everyone’s Face Tells A Story”

Talking to the Animals

Walk with the animals, talk with the animals… I walked out of my client’s house today and saw two of my very favorite regularly seen animals across the street. I know. That sounds odd to say “favorite regularly seen animals.” The truth is, I DO regularly see many animals though. Here at my house, lastContinue reading “Talking to the Animals”

Pretty Yellow Crocus/NaPoWriMo Day 8

I see you little flowers, peeking out of dead leaves! I’m so glad to see you, I laugh and smile with glee. You are so very brave, as you stretch your tiny heads, weeks before the other flowers awake from the dead. You, my little lovelies, are the harbinger of spring, of hope– for warmer,Continue reading “Pretty Yellow Crocus/NaPoWriMo Day 8”

Plain Living/NaPoWriMo Day 5

I yearn for plain living, simple days with a slower pace and a quietness not found typically in our loud and modern world. Today our power was out while our system was upgraded. I got my wish for plain living, but only for a day. At first, I found myself feeling lost without the comforting humContinue reading “Plain Living/NaPoWriMo Day 5”
