you don’t know why
but there it is,
you’ve been beckoned by a tree
it is just a tree you say
here you are
examining and wondering
what the message will be
after all, there is something
really special about the tree
look how proudly and
beautifully it shows off its scars
life is not always easy
for a tree
suddenly by jove
you see the cutest of faces
smiling at you
love at first sight =^_^=
always now I’ll know
when I drive by
my friend, the tree
will be looking out for me.

off in the distance,
under the afternoon skies
they saw the same grouping
that they were looking at
just down the path
half covered by vines
they stood rooted on the spot
to be uncovered
Yvette arrived earlier
Clementine was due next week
excitement was building
Rosie promised she would
let them explore her
chest of drawers
they still had no idea
where the music came from
it happened when she was
working in her room,
and now, double statues
3 maidens high above
and 3 maidens on the ground
somewhere there was a clue
quietly no words spoken
walking deeper into the gardens.
neither saw the chest hidden further in
from where they had been standing.

How nice, another birthday card. Rosie sipped on her tea, and listened as the movers grunted and called out to each other about the best way to get whatever it was they were moving into the house. Her birthdays usually came and went without much fanfare, but this time, she had to admit, all the activity of getting the “girls” settled in was a lot of fun.
Each was so different, and the luggage and pieces of furniture that were arriving each day, was so fascinating. So far, the silver dragon sculpture had been the best, although the very old roll top desk was also interesting. packages of odd sizes and shapes arrived day and night. She was so glad she had accepted the offer to be here.
Even her old chest of drawers fit in, her room was big enough for her to enjoy the privacy of her room when she needed it. Yet close enough to the kitchen and public area, for her to keep an eye on the coming and goings of the participants in the project that had brought them all together.
Birthdays were such happy times. She wondered how old she was… but then, catching sight of herself in the mirror, she smiled. Who cares she thought.. It is how I feel, and darn it all, I feel pretty good.
*knock *knock…” Roses for Ms Rosie”…. said a voice…
The day just couldn’t get any better thought Rosie. Every day was so full of surprises.!
We hope you had a grand day dear friends… join us again for tidbits on Rosie and her friends.

Yes she knew he was not real, of course he was made out of pewter, and the blue gemstones were not the best… or so she was told… then why did she feel that he watched her every move. She wanted ChenMay to be there, but ChenMay was not with her, ChenMay was in another part of the grounds.
She hadn’t seen him at first, and now she didn’t know what had made her look down. As soon as the sunlight had gleamed on his eyes, she had known to stop. She searched her mind to try to recall what ChenMay had told her about the dragon. The dragon was part of the Wizardology classes that ChenMay gave each fall to new Apprentices.
She looked closer, and saw the defined scales all over his body, he was majestic.
“Oh there you are” ChenMay’s voice drifted towards them, as she approached where they were standing. “You’ve met ” she smiled as she bent to pick up the dragon.
Leonie would say later, that one minute the dragon was on the ground, and the next he was gone. ChenMay bent down, and when she stood, the dragon was gone. ” I saw him” she would exclaim, “he really was there, his scales shone in the sunlight. ”
ChenMay would only say, “dragon’s play, dragon’s fly away” then chuckle and turn away.
oh dear, oh dear,
what a silly tale
a dragon who can be seen
can this be true
what need I do
to have the dragon
appear to me
are girls being girls,
or is there a story
to be told..
PL Precept # 20 Live Maintaining Equilibrium between Mind and Matter
There is a world of wonder all around us!
I tried, I wanted to
I even brought my pens with me, I planned it all, the lined pages,
pristine white, blank pages,
for days I even practiced the different styles of lettering
anticipation high, time to doodle and write.
Yet when I got to where we were going,
Not once, did I use the pens to practice my lettering
The pads of blank pages, came home empty.
It is the journey, the living each day that is important, obviously, while away my time was filled with happy moments, new discoveries, a sense of adventure and of course, the cherished company of a wonderful husband and our two frisky “canine children”

Spent a lazy day, painting and trying to resolve a technical problem on the PC. Am I the only one who asks, PC or Apple? I have both, each has their own special features that I enjoy. but neither satisfies me 100%
Such is the way of life. A philosophical conversation years back, Can a husband and a lover be one and the same? Or do you have to settle on which qualities you want to spend the rest of your life with.
Don’t you just love the solid look of this old charmer, it has been so well looked after. While someone wanted the top one, but has left it out in the elements, the inside of it is ruined.
This beauty was ready to roll. The dealer wasn’t open when we happened by, and there was no signage on the vehicle. So I was left with no choice but to steal a kiss and run. =^_^=
Our Honda Ridgeline was secure in the knowledge that she can accommodate all 4 us, in a way the two seater could never do….You may love the wicked ones, but it is the solid good drives that keeps you humming from year to year. =^_^= .
I appreciate a good-looking body, especially one that has been well looked after. You can always tell when there is pride of ownership. Today we take too much for granted. Life is to enjoy, and living is about exploring and discovering. When we are internally happy, the world is a beautiful place.

New Hampshire on an early morning walk. It is May, I’m taking my time enjoying the fresh morning air, not thinking about anything else but the moment.
Only now am getting to see some of the pictures I took during our time away. A holiday is time for me to wander, some pictures were taken with my Lumix, others with my iPhone. Slowly I will get to them, for tonight, I wanted to drop in and say hi… I’ve missed you all. It wasn’t till we were on our way back today that I gave in and bought an Acer Notebook, sorry to all you Apple peeps, I simply can’t work away on an iPad like I can a Windows/PC…
You won’t see a lot of sunshine, just a lot of fresh mountain air, and the fresh new buds of new sprouts. When the windows were open we could hear the crystal clear water cascading down the mountain side through the gorge. Looking out from out two side windows, all we saw was the drop down to the forest floor. Already the bears have started to stir, one guest who stayed in one of the back “cabin/rooms” saw a bear wandering in the wooded area, in back of the Inn a few days before we arrived. We were advised not to let our dogs off leash or unattended.
We did drive down one day into the southern part of NH, where the bigger cities are, we didn’t stay long, a few hours. that was all we needed before we high tailed it back up north into the National Forest area, where we were staying, Holidays are never long enough, but, we know we will go back, and really, I missed being home, and chatting with you. Go figure. I love my time with you. Makes me feel good. Now I’ll be able to catch up on what you all have been doing.
It is late in the day, but to all the Mother’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day.
