Ring, ring what’s that I hear? a cell phone held up to my ear? or is it songs the birdies sing? is it katydid’s buzzing wings? the grating of lawnmowers buzz? a cat screeching just because? or squeaking brakes on the local bus? oh wait, it’s just my dratted tinnitus, mystery solved.

Til next time ~ Listen to the sounds of silence ~JP
Summer passed in a verdant haze of growing things herbs grew in my garden with wild abandon birds nested and fledged mornings were greeted with dulcet tones of birdsong and harmonies of the lake
Summer wound her capricious way through the year and my heart dancing with wild abandon until the air itself was exhausted then settled into lethargic rest as we settled in a hammock Summer and I waiting for Autumn’s gentle kiss
And so Summer slips into slumber and I wake to cooler mornings and dream of soups and stews of beeswax candles and herbal teas I wait with the tingle of anticipation for the supernova of color as Autumn paints the world in the brilliant shades of her choosing
“Too many times we stand aside And let the waters slip away ‘Til what we put off ’til tomorrow Has now become today So don’t you sit upon the shoreline And say you’re satisfied Choose to chance the rapids And dare to dance the tide…yes”
For this week’s Flashback, I went back to my old, pre-wordpress days. This is a collage I made in the old Polyvore app for a 30 day challenge called “What I Wore Today.”
It was a wonderful reminder of where I was in my life at that time, I was between two total knee replacements and resting a lot. My wish for your weekend: may you pause and feel a single moment of utter amazement at the beauty of life.
