Creative Quest

Creative Quest

“You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right. If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you’ll never stick it out.” ~Steve Jobs       Recently, I took part in a week-long Photo Quest (#celebrateARTlife ), put together by Whitney Freya.  I find when […]

“When you sit tranquilly, you set a great example to the people who rush around in panic and thus you show the crazy waves the beauty of being a calm lake!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan       In my Seasonal Celebrations post, on my gardening blog, I talked about what I wanted to focus […]

August Break Continues

August Break Continues

“Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the ‘creative bug’ is just a wee voice telling you, ‘I’d like my crayons back, […]

End of Month Potpourri-May 2015

“People often ask themselves the right questions.

Poetry Sunday-How It Feels

Poetry Sunday-How It Feels

  How It Feels     I know how it feels to have lost, As if the life I know has ended. Moving through a vortex, Not really living, just existing.     I know how it feels to hurt deep inside, that intense pain in your heart. As if a vital piece is missing, and […]

Poetry Sunday-Christmas Scenes

Poetry Sunday-Christmas Scenes

  Christmas Scenes   I look upon the Christmas tree And fade to childhood memories;   Of snowflakes, boots and mittens warm Donned on frosty, biting morns.   Sleds dragged down snow-covered streets To find fresh powder on hills replete.   Later home with frozen fingers and toes Warmed before the fire with hot cocoa. […]

Poetry Sunday-Trees

Poetry Sunday-Trees

I Am The Tree   Erect I stand, strong of will. Defying the wind, and all nature can swill.   I cast my eyes to take in the scene, While all around is washed white and serene.   The strength of my roots and courage in my stance, Will serve me well in life’s new dance. […]

Poetry Sunday-Still Life

Poetry Sunday-Still Life

Still Life   The heat of my days is gone, now a tinge of coolness on the wind lingers.   Soft colors faded from the garish summer sun, as light shines at an angle, my perceptions skewed.   Gone is the black and white, the absolute. Born is the gray, the in-between that stays.   […]
