For all of the kind words, and  birthday wishes. A lot of my favorite spots remain closed or have limited capacity.. Due to the Coronavirus. Still, it was a very lovely day.

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
 
- Robert Frost

 " I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you've dreamed of
And I wish to you joy and happiness
But above all this, I wish you love
And I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you."

#TBT

As you can tell by now, I love Monarch butterflies. I snapped this pic a few years ago, while on vacation.

Monarch

When I snapped this pic, I was focusing on the flower, and then the Monarch landed on it. I love the way the bench sort of fades into the background.

"The Flower"


Before I called her name,
she was nothing
more than a gesture.
When I called her name,
she came to me
and became a flower.
Like I called her name,
will someone please call my name
that suits my light and fragrance?
I, too, long to come to her
and become her flower.
We all long to be something.
You, to me, and I, to you,
long to become a gaze that won’t be forgotten.

"On the Day that Shines Again"




"Spirit,
at first, my heart was like a wavering haze
on a day when thousands of skylarks sing;
It was like small clouds flying together
in the verdant river
where the fish with glittering scales swim.

Spirit,
but when you came one day in his shape,
I became a mad whirlwind.
I became a torrential rain,
a cascading waterfall from a cliff.

But Spirit,
like the ocean swallows a small creek,
you took him away again,
and left only an evening glow
burning in my empty heart."

AMV...

"You and I were friends from outer space
Afraid to let go
The only two who understood this place
And as far as we know
We were way before our time."..

Driving force.

My new novel is what I like to call a blue-collar love story. I like to create characters that are flawed, morally centered, and a work in progress. I don't like the word "damaged," because to me it implies that they can't be fixed.  I've always found imperfection, in some cases more interesting than perfection. These are principles that guide me when creating my characters. Check back soon for the title and cover reveal.

I can't wait until I can visit this lovely zoo again. The elephants were truly majestic.
