Someplace In Paradise..
Sand between my toes..
In fantasy.. no sunburn.
One hundred thirty pounds, i weigh!
No extra weight mine!
Long hair in a perfect bun!
Nail color ancho pepper..
I have the St. Tropez tan!
Have passed through blue door!
Midnight blue with golden knob!
Waved my silver wand..
Am princess of Ruby Isle..
I say.. margaritas for all!
And actually, i love to dream, but my real paradise is here with my husband-sweetie, and our kitty-sweeties! Maybe i should have chosen a photo in which i hadn't cut off Tennessee's ears? But i do love his expression in this pic! Have a beautiful Thursday, and peace all!

Through the Window..
Outside looking in..
Broken glass.. lace curtains torn..
How many years passed?
What happened here long ago?
Two old sisters lived here then..
Younger cared for old..
Red and pink glass edged..stained glass
Clear center dirty!
Was this a contented home?
This white frame house with green door?
These two, Otis and Tortie, fill my heart with so much love and joy every single day!
Goodnight for now, and peace!

What's The Rush?
There are so many times when i wish humans would slow down!
When we rush so much, we're rude, and we make each other frown..
Slow down and smell the yellow rosies..
And the red, lavender, and bright, sweet posies!
We should be polite and nice, after all, none of us wears a crown!
How about feet up, and a lovely glass of Chardonnay?
Because relaxed and mindful is the much better way!
Everyone has important places to go..
But it seems like better manners we all could show!
I wish peace, slower times and happiness to all, i say!
But then if you're ever in a super hurry, there's this... :)
I came across this place and sign a couple of weeks ago, and it made me smile. I don't smoke, or drink a lot of cold beer. I prefer wine or a well made martini. :) But for those who want their stuff fast, this is the place to go! Just like making a bank withdrawal at a drive-through. lol.
Well, it for now. Have a great Tuesday and peace! I'll be back soon!

Time in our minds stalls..
See a blue door and brass knob..
Step over threshold...
Won't take us back to before!
Close our eyes.. step and return?
No.. forward like magic!
No magic in the hard wind..
Pushes us forward..
Wind closes door behind us..
Wind and time are what they are.
In a brief news item, the above picture is of myself this entire weekend. Not active at all. Must change that in this new week! Must. lol. Have a lovely Monday all, and peace!

Coco Skunk met her true love while walking in the park!
She and Darren Skunk met often in the moonlight, after dark..
Now they're married,
And not at all harried!
They walk in the mornings to the sweet song of a lark!
Coco is a much older girl..
Darren gave her a sweet, freshwater pearl!
She worries about her age..
She once was on the Broadway Stage!
But Darren doesn't mind, and under the stars they twirl!
Darren is a quite a handsome young man..
Of Broadway plays, he's quite a big fan!
He likes to wear his purple bowties..
Darren's honest and never tells any lies!
Darren is young, but a much better man than Stan*!
*More about Stan a little later on.. :)
I think a late autumn storm is on its way! I hope Coco and Darren have sought shelter. I love sky like this sometimes. :) Have a lovely evening, and i'll be back soon. Peace!

Because i'm in the mood for it.. here are some what ifs just for fun. I'm watching the Civil War football game with Hubby, (Oregon State University Beavers vs. University of Oregon Ducks,) and it's fine, but i want to write whilst i watch. Some of these what ifs are realistic. Some.. pure whimsy. Anyway, here goes:
-- What if real ducks played football? I figure they'd be excellent kickers and agile on a wet, muddy field.
-- What if i was an expert on pop culture? I'm hardly that. I was browsing in Barnes and Noble day before yesterday, and noticed on the cover of People Magazine that Adam Levine is People's Sexiest Man Alive. I thought, 'who in the world is Adam Levine? lol. Very famous lead singer of Maroon 5, it turns out. I am a pop culture know nothing for sure. Maybe i should brush up? Nah.. i really don't care.
-- What if i became a country music fan? I can't imagine that will ever happen in a gazillion years. But i suppose i should never say never! I prefer classical and blues. (Why i had no idea who Maroon 5 and Adam Levine are.) lol. At least i know Maroon 5 is not a country band!
-- What if i was not afraid to fly on a plane? Where would i travel first? Paris? Tahiti? Belize? London? The choices are endless. One of these days...
-- What if books ceased to exist in our world? What an awful thought. I really shouldn't go there!
-- What if cats could read our minds? And blab to anyone about what we really think. I know my secrets are safe if i confide in my kitties!
-- What if i stopped liking reading books? I know that will never happen. That's just a big what if...
-- What if Hubby and i had an opportunity to move from Oregon back to Maine.. our home state? I wonder if we'd take the opportunity? Three or four years ago, the answer from both of us would have been definitely yes. I'm not so sure now. We love Oregon an awful lot!
Well, that's it for this post. Back to the game. :)
Well, Tennessee is a very wise kitty, but i take comfort in the fact that he can't read my mind. Goodnight, and have a lovely evening. Peace!

For tonight.. just a poem i love. :)
As you lay in sleep
I saw the chart
Of artery and vein
Running from your heart,
Plain as the strength
Marked upon the leaf
Along the length,
Mortal and brief,
Of your gaunt hand.
I saw it clear:
The wiry brand
Of the life we bear
Mapped like great
Rivers that rise
Beyond our fate
And distant from our eyes.
Little hearts and big hearts, but all sizes mean love!
Happy Thanksgiving night, all.. and peace!
