Open doors #ThursdayDoors

 One of the nice things about living here is being up in the mountains while living close to a viable town that provides 99% of what we need. If I am feeling energetic I can walk the six miles down to town to do business and catch a taxi back up. I haven’t tried making the trek back up on foot since I am usually carrying groceries or supplies. Since we were not here prior to the Covid outbreak, I’m not sure what businesses were like back then; but knowing the weather and the welcoming nature of these people, I think not much has changed with regards to how they operate other than MINSA regulations which are strictly adhered to. MINSA is their health organization which lays out the mandates and protocols for operations during this pandemic. They run a pretty tight ship which helps us feel more comfortable about shopping when necessary and visiting medical facilities as we are having to now.  What I enjoy most is the ‘open door’ way businesses operate. The temperatures range from 64 to a

With all that is going on in our lives right now, I have been at a loss for words. My head is a jumble of things and I have not been able to reach my zone of expression. Maybe it is just that what would come out would not be my normal emotions. Still, I have so many beautiful moments in my days that are so inspiring. They keep my heart in tune and my hope on the horizon. I thought I would share a few with you here. Stay safe and well, my friends.  Light waltzing with mist Nature’s smiles Brilliance at sunset This tree.... Our friend Lucie Passion never dies on the growing fence  

The Passion of Beeing

  Within the cool shadows of the living wall Passion blooms in radiant enticing hues of scarlet, gold and violet too with silver tongues that sing the melody of seduction, reproduction and sweet repose such strains too sweet to be ignored by Nature’s laborers of fertility In droves they descend upon her bloom  her treasure freely exposed and eager for the taking The hungry feed voraciously humming quite loquaciously  to hypnotize her will to surrender She trembles ‘neath the feathery touch as deeply probed, extracting such- the gems of future generations “Share with me, and you shall see the fruits of our unbridled passion” Another and another come to worship at her knee her suitors taking turn as she sighs, “To be or not to bee” Alas there is no choice for her as Nature knows its way.  Her tender heart bursts inside out, fulfilling Passion’s play Alas, the contradiction as we give the benediction Some intruders may be welcome,  embraced and fed robustly while mankind must put up barb

Why? #1Liner Wednesday

 Why did the rooster cross the road? Why, to crow on the other side, of course!  I only wish I had been able to take a video of this guy standing in the driveway and crowing at the house, as if fulfilling his sworn duty to its occupants. The road was treacherously busy that time of the morning, so... I hope everyone is having a good week personally. I know as a nation America is struggling right now. I have been in constant prayer for the good in my country to rise, even among those who had previously chosen a dark path. Some of those people were among my closest friends and family. I struggle with comprehension of how little I knew of their hearts and how to reconcile a future relationship with them. On a very personal note I am going to do something I rarely do but should more often. My husband is suffering from a very serious health issue right now that is challenging due to our circumstances and those of systems. I am asking you, my online friends and anyone who reads this to send

In My Own Little Corner/ SoCS

 Magic happens, dreams come true, and love abounds... “Just as long as I stay in my own little corner...all alone in my own little chair.” When I was quite small this was my favorite holiday film and I had to reenact it for days, using a hand me down white party dress and sing this song just before my Fairy Godmother showed up. How I longed for one of my own. This post brought to you by Linda Hill’ SoCS prompt. Be sure to visit her blog to meet other great bloggers.
