A-Guy-Called-Bloke-Feature-321-Quote-Me-Comm-Prompt-JPEG

OK so Rory is the host of the “3.2.1. Quote Me!” Challenge and I can’t resist this one. Plus, I’m probably spending a little more time sitting at my ‘puter than usual because I’m “recovering” from eye surgery yesterday. I’m a day late and a dollar short on this but I, literally, spent all afternoon yesterday at the Opthalmologist’s trying to figure out why 24 hours after surgery I can’t see out of my left eye. Anyway the topic was

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

Stories of Failure and Success

“You have written a half dozen book of poetry and at least three novellas but you don’t intend to publish them?” Sarah furrowed her eyebrows while glaring slightly at her dear old friend.

“Yep, that’s right.” Topaz patted a pile of booklets, all printed, illustrated and carefully bound by her own hand. They were her own personal collection of her own personal writing.

“That’s crazy Topaz, any publisher would love to get their hands on your work. Surely you are not afraid of rejection.”

Topaz set down her tea cup and looked intently into her younger friend’s eyes. “Sarah dear, I do not fear rejection nor do I fear failure, for those are other people’s opinions of my work and therefore they are meaningless.”

“Then why not publish? You could even self-publish.” Sarah began to smile at the idea.

Topaz just smiled quietly, “there is only one thing I do fear my dear. That which can corrupt and destroy work that was brought forth with the very best intention. What I fear is not failure, but success.”

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?

There’s a new tag challenge going around 😉

Play Along Guidelines
Please share a link to the creator of the tag-jesusluvsall.wordpress.com
Share some highlights for you over the past decade and if you want, a few low points
Tag whoever you wish to.

Thanks to Di for the tag this is an awesome chance to reflect on a decade of ups and downs. To paraphrase, it was the best of times, it was the worst of times, a decade of joy and a decade of loss. Mostly it has been a decade of deep personal change.

In the 20teens (between 2010 and 2019) we’ve had some low points. Continue reading “The Decade Tag – 2010 – 2019”
