“Let’s not forget that the little emotions
are the great captains of our lives and
we obey them without realizing it.”
~Vincent Van Gogh, 1889

“In the garden I tend to drop my thoughts here and there.
To the flowers I whisper the secrets I keep and the hopes I breathe.
I know they are there to eavesdrop for the angels.”

I am. I am. I am.

Can anyone ID this flower? It looks to me like a type of lily?

Up Close & Purple

tiny purple flowers

Up close to a small purple flowering plant, for sale at the local market. Taken in June, of 2015 with my Samsung G2 cell phone camera (when it still worked.)

Swish * swoosh goes the washing machine that is my life. Constant agitation works well for washing clothes, but when in regards to my delicate sensibilities it becomes just plain irritating. Change is good right? Learning, growing, struggle and overcoming life’s daily battles – it’s what this is all about right?

I wonder if ants get depressed about their assigned role in their life, this huge world around them? Do the female ants envy and daydream about being the Queen ant? I suppose not, so why should I just because I am a human? Ant drone, human drone, we are all cogs in this great Universal machine. What does it produce? Is the final product of our lives really that different for each of us? It must.. Or in the greater view, does it all look about the same?

Questions, I always have questions. Too many questions. Sometimes, I even have answers but those shift/change/fade/evolve which usually just leads me to more questions. And again, I wonder.. do ants have questions? swish * swoosh

All That Glitters

Halloween decoration, sold at the market amongst the flowers. September, 2014.

“Vanity plays lurid tricks with our memory.”
~Joseph Conrad

Ever had your memory play tricks on you? Remembering people more negatively or positively than they were during the course of your relationship with them? How about your own actions? Do you were rose colored glasses when looking at the past? Or are you wearing blinders?

I have done all of these. It’s funny how time can soften our thoughts & hearts. How somethings can be ingrained into our brains, and others just get fuzzy & vague. Every memory cannot glitter & sparkle. Which do we keep, which do we let go? Maybe, my brain just needs some polishing!


white flower petals

White flowers for sale, inside my local general store. Mid-April, 2015.

It’s my FRIDAY! And, I couldn’t be happier! 🙂 For some reason, this week has taken it’s toll on me and my little heart. I’m looking forward to making a campfire and roasting some marshmallows this coming Thursday night, hopefully on the beach. We’ve got to look into rules/zones etc for creating a fire inside town limits. I just really know, I want to make a fire and BURN some wood. To hear it SNAP and CRACKLE, to watch it light up the night sky and hear the gentle sounds of the ocean.
