Pig fun

pig fun

well here I am

stuck in a cup

I simply pop up

offering you some fun

cuz I am bored

stuck in this cup

waiting for someone to finish

lunch or whatever

to come back and play

pig 2 fun

 I am sure if you colour me in

my smile will get broader

no one will notice

the tea is laced with gin

Valer eeee, valour aaaa ahahaha

I am a silly little piglet

sitting in tea

popping in

to peak at your chin


Happy Thursday to me

no reason, no rhyme

justtttt me


if you are feeling just as silly colour piglet in…

he/she is a piglet in need, indeed   !!!

new card, new day

cat card 1.22Sassy cat

came by to chat

look your cherries are dripping, I say

go away, she purrs

they are ripe and oozing bling

ah, never knew cherries to bling

that is because she purrs

you are a bee

and you sting

what could I say

I am made this way =^_^=


PL calendar # 23  Appreciate our differences

Appreciate the colourful personalities of the people around you

and enjoy their uniqueness to the fullest.




shades of gray


stark, cloudy, bleak, no, not bleak, just gray

what is there to say

the water looks dark, cold and uninviting

no need to test it with my toe

by the time I walk across the snow-covered grounds

my feet and toes will  no longer be cozy warm

I think I will pass, and not go near the water’s edge

that is something I can do on another day

meanwhile I will view from afar

the far away shoreline, before

I head back, following the path that I’ve taken

back to the truck.

Not really exciting, but refreshing, yes.

A winter’s day, shown in shades of gray


I found some colour to brighten the gray

I will come back another day

We are heading into a storm

for winter, this is the norm

after all this is Canada eh!

looking back 2017

endings, beginnings

always another day

reality, there is only now

always is

this very moment




PL Principle # 1_edited-1

words we say,

we can never take back

once spoken

they linger

time may erase the pain

but, long after

the scars remain

TRUE love given

no matter the distance

will remain true

 and, should there be pain

pure love will see us through

words can lie

real love is felt

often unsaid

yet the bond transcends

above and beyond

always and forever

today, tomorrow and always


no more, no less




a chance encounter


shadows cast a spell

allowing me to see

 the world in your eye

when the sun moves on

you will be gone

 I won’t forget, but

your location

I won’t tell

your secret is safe

with me



My long time friend,  passed away Friday – if she were here, we would likely quip that “another one bites the dust”  Susan and I were the dynamic duo who felt that we could do anything we wanted to. If others said it was impossible, Susan and I would sit down and work out how we could get it done.  I had two friends called Susan, she was known in our circle as “little Susan” cuz that is what she was, 5’2″ if that.

IMG_4120Being a Taoist, for me landscaping was all about bringing nature to my property so that it would as closely resemble natural growth, Susan shared that passion, when I bought a home with a double lot, she said, I’m going to get more land too.  She moved to a place where she had the kind of lot that she could build on.  We were off to the races, every week-end we toured miles of countryside looking for landscaping places that would offer us plants that were not the standard backyard fare.


Susan’s passion soon outgrew her backyard, she called me one day to tell me she had decided to purchase land.  We both had full-time careers in Corporate Health Care, and were raising our “young” but that didn’t stop her.  Once her mind was made up, Susan was a very determined person.  Over the years I watched as she  took on one “project” or “passion” after another.

IMG_4126When I remarried in the late 90’s, we didn’t get to spend the time together that we did before, but anytime we did meet up, we picked up just where we left off. That was the kind of relationship we had. The bond we had created when we were younger, held like glue.  The years passed, friends in our lives changed, but still, we knew each other like one hand knows the other.

IMG_4116She is gone now, at least the human form is no longer here.  But her presence, the secrets we shared, the long evenings of simply “being” in the same space, discovering our “selves”.. that will always be.


Rest in peace my friend, our joy in prisms will always be a reminder of how much you are part of mine.

When love is true it lasts forever, no matter what…

true friendship is not about how often you see each other,

or how long you have known each other..

but in the truth of what you were to each other.
