Why? — Thursday, July 29, 2021

“The voyage of discovery consists not of seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”–Marcel Proust

I have a snake (water snake) who lives in the hen house with the hens.  Randomly we (snake and I) scare each other.

Why would you tolerate a snake in the hen house, you ask?

This is why.

Snakes love to eat mice!

Way to go, Snake!

Perhaps — Wednesday, July 29, 2020

I like to read tales from the Viking era…and stories about King Arthur. Stories by Bernard Shaw, Mary Stewart, Octavia Randolph all set during the time when the Christ God (the Christian Church) was starting to replace the old God’s of Myth.

I also love the story of Elijah when he was taken up into Heaven 

What a rush that would have been

To just suddenly be lifted up

Past this world, we call Earth.

So, back to my first sentence about Viking times and the time of King Arthur

It was a rather rough and tumble sort of time for all those who lived in it

A time where I’m sure God was protecting each and every person

As, surely, the Old Gods were showing their followers ‘the way’

So, Perhaps,—here we are today…way down through the centuries

Where I’m sure, If God a tad busy doing something —

There are still angels and other helpers

Who walk alongside each and every one of us

Speaking to us, messages from God

Perhaps all we need to do is to be Grateful…

To hear what they are speaking to our hearts

Thank you so much, my readers and friends, my heart is full of gratitude for each of you.

From my world to your heart,



Our Thunder Comes from the West — Monday, July 29, 2019

We have been having afternoon/evening/nighttime showers.

They are random and quick.

Building up; crashing and booming with lightning and thunder

It’s amazing and marvelous all at once.

Friday night in our town, they had an outstanding experience of an inch of rain in 30 minutes.

Where we live we got lovely, just right, rain.  The air clean and refreshed. The air sparkling.

Covering the Mountains in a Rushing Wind—-Sunday, July 29, 2018

The fire at the edge of Fruitland Mesa is growing larger and larger.  It actually looks like there are two fires there now.

The long plumes of smoke rushing skyward as more and more of the forest and underbrush are consumed. 😦

You can tell when another section of woodland is reached the fire plumes turn black and blacker.

My heart goes out to all the wild animals who live there and are fleeing in terror.

So far no structures are in its way…they are just letting it burn because of the terrible terrain it is in.  Sad.

No real rain here.  Lots of thunder and lightning and wind, but moisture of any count has not yet arrived.
