A Visit to Barbara's Barnyard

Two of eight Dogs...
8 months old - Chocolate Lab
The Hens at Nag's Head & their Eggs
Mustang Sally (a rescue Mustang) & east side Last Horse
Nickering for their Food - Hawkeye in the front
Norman - Texas Longhorn (raised from a calf)
Hydrangea and Rosemary at the Front Door - good luck
Gone to Seed

We worked together for almost 15 years.  She made me laugh, she taught me things.  She is one, of my two BFF’s, a true friend.  My friend, Barbara.

It was a good visit, I have always enjoyed her animals.  There are bees I forgot to visit.  

There were tears on my cheeks as I drove away!

To show you God has a sense of humor, both my BFF’s are name Barbara Jean.....both are good with money!

Gathering of My Gratitudes

I am thankful for encouragement.
  I am thankful for sacred, things of the spirit.
    I am thankful for Rumi and his words.

          I am thankful I am able to refer back to what
             has helped.
            I am thankful for the Blessed Virgin, a
A woman understands a woman.
We need not to be led astray....
Seagulls travel a ways from the beach to fly over us inland.  They bring the beach to me, the scent of salt water, and seaweed.  And my seashells.
I’m a worshiper of God.  He has a covenant show me my path.

Letting go.  Breathe.
Home Sweet Home until May
My Molly & Arthur
I "feel" this time and place....I want to be here.
I am a free spirit
 it is ok to dream
and imagine the life you want.
I love to gather pretty trinkets
glass and pearls
pictures that make me "feel"
I am already there.

I am open to God
to truth wherever I find it.

I do have a thankful heart.

The Invisible People.....

A Love Song for Bobby Long - Movie

“Write about what you can’t see
what isn’t there
the invisible people
we walk past every day
and never see.” 

Bobby Long,  played by John Travolta

A reminder to my self to write, and to see the invisible people.

To help when possible.

This year, every year.

certain ethnicities 
the unlovely
the unloved
Tears.....he was stopped for hitchhiking on an Interstate......it broke my heart

Dancing Dogs......

Dancing In Mexico

Not myself,
but Maria,
who, when her work is done,
tunes in the radio,
goes out in the garden,
picks up the front feet of the little dog Ricky,
and dances.  She dances.
