For Linda’sJusJoJan ourprompt for JusJoJan January 21st is “scraggly” and is brought to us by Cheryl. Thanks Cheryl.
Winds from the south brought warm air to January skies I watch the dirty remains of snow drifts melting into tiny rivers flowing wildly down the asphalt toward their destination of nowhere a small crow lands on a scraggly winter brown shrub and boldly caws, daring the song birds to return early for he knows, as I know, that this winter is far from over the air will chill again, more snow will fall and I have plenty of cold days remaining days to savor the peace and solitude of winter a warm fire, a cup of tea, and a good book come Winter and shroud my world in your blanket of white stillness
for just a little longer

“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 classContinue reading “3.2.1. Quote Me! – Balance”→

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 .
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
Branches dance in the wind swaying like lovers slow dancing a few puffy clouds skitter across the azure blue sky I sit by my fireplace warm and snug watching the deer graze paying no heed to the cold wind or melting snow drifts We share our joy the deer and I of sunlit warmth and blue sky of greening grass yet to come the promise and possibility of spring

Winds from the North, fog blowing in temperatures dropping, it’s time to begin Mother Nature’s misty show in frozen perfection, crystals now to grow
