“Some days I eat salads and go to the gym. Some days I eat cupcakes and refuse to put on pants. It’s called balance.” ~unknown

“Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astair did but backwards and in high heels.” ~Bob Thaves

Balance is an illusion. Stand on one foot, feel the muscles in your foot and leg shift to keep you upright as your mind wanders or the wind blows. You adjust, you stay balanced. This is life. It’s a thousand tiny adjustments, every day. ~Me to my yoga class Continue reading “3.2.1. Quote Me! – Balance”

Snow Kisses

Snow flies like tiny fairies
dancing in the winter air
shivering in the bright sun
as snowflakes tickle my lashes
little fairy kisses
melting on my tongue

Beauty is where you find it

I do not subscribe to other people’s definition of beauty. I would rather wear flowers in my hair than diamonds on my fingers. I would rather walk barefoot than in the best designer shoes.  Is there anything more beautiful than a bouquet of dandelions in the hands of a child?

JusJoJan 7 – Mix it Up

JJJ 1.7.20 Snow

Interesting prompt for today, so let’s mix things up a little. My blog is an eclectic mix of poetry, flash fiction, short stories, spoonie life advice and wow, just whatever happens to pop into my head. I like to mix things up at home sometimes too. My usual Spotify playlist of Taylor Davis’ music today has been preempted by French Cafe Jazz – shameless borrowed from The Simply Luxurious Life .

Robin the Haphazard Homemaker has some great ideas for mixing up your Winter decor using items you already have on hand.

Shortly I’ll be enjoying some Mexican Hot Cocoa (from a homemade mix) and a bit of art journaling. So whatever you’re doing today, take a minute or two and mix things up a little. 😉

Monday Window – Looking Through

1.6.20 Wellington
Stained glass window preserved at the Wellington Museum – Wellington, NZ

Ludwig is hosting the first Monday Window challenge for 2020, come on over and see some fabulous windows. I took this shot last winter while on holiday in Wellington, NZ. It always makes me feel warm to look at it when the weather here is cold and windy.

Look Through the Window

I watch the light shine through bits of colored glass
A kaleidoscope of colors, patterns dance across the floor
Like memories in bits and pieces, each beautiful alone
but together becoming something more
A work of art, shining illumination for all the world
while I ponder what the new year holds in store
