Ah, 2:39 quiet, so peaceful...Tuffy sleeping here in the "Blue Room" with only the white glare of the computer and a tiny teal lamp beaming on him. He is gracing me with his presence.
Photo is a vignette of the kitchen, guess I should've posted it when the Red Wings were "hot" so long ago ;o(
Not much to say, but wanted to be here, a place where I collect my thoughts and my photos and share them out in the "ethers" (ether that or I just make an ath of mythelf!)
In the morning going to see UP at the Disney 3D with some friends-rated 5-star! Jeff and I took "vacation days" his first since last Sept and I don't remember when for me, except thankful for holidays now and then (but, oh, how I wish neighbors wouldn't blow off fireworks, ie bombs! and scare all the wildlife out there...and pets, dogs who are tied to doghouses and perhaps the baby fawn born just a day or two ago who rested down in "The Garden" (an acre that Dad used to grow and now we mow).
Got to talk to an old friend from high school tonight ... it was so much fun laughing about dumb shit we did and cracking up. Also left a msg for my ex-husband who is very ill ... felt good when he left a msg back. I will call him soon to talk. He has end stage cirrhosis and it's been 2 yrs. He sounded weak but he is strong in many ways.
Got to catch up on our days, my darlin' and me, and watch an episode of "Firefly". I feel so blessed to live here in the home I grew up in, married to my brother's good friend, with a cat who bought his "Paw" the collector's edition of Serenity...the movie that ties up the loose ends of the Firefly series for "Paw's Day" Sunday. (We'll use any excuse to get and give gifts around here! ;oD)
So...Bloggie Souls...have yourselves a very fine weekend and hold those dear to you in your hearts and let 'em know you are. I care ... I even care about myself! My cup runneth over and over and ...oh, yeah, it's 2:52 am now. Still quiet, still peaceful. Ahhhhhh....sigh.....'night, now.

A Poem just rediscovered

July Moon with Lily in Hand
Standing alone near the pond
in the middle of the yard
toes getting wet in dewy grass
Wearing only that knife-pleated
purple lace nightie
see-thru and cut to her ass
with the Full Moon in Capricorn
Sun now in Cancer--
opposing oppositionals
As the sliver of cloud
traced the lips of the Moon as it
lit up the white of her hair
She sang "when the
deep purple falls"
to the sleepy stone wall
while three verses of Summertime
She was awestruck with passion
and grateful for
one day
when living was easy and slow
swaying softly and singing
in the Guatemalan hammock
adorned with purple ropes
she could tell that
the knife-pleats were
cutting a swath
as the Moon's face shed sad
woman tears
Holding a lemony lily
condemned to only
one day of life on the vine
she kept singing to the sky
a swell of tears in her eyes
knowing full well
that Life wasn't fair
but she waited and sang
and lie down as she languished
in the deep purple night
in a deep purple gown
with that yellow lily
in hand
her voice was quite clear
resonating beyond
her lost dreams taken hostage
that night
a one-woman band
dying bloom in her hand
while the Moon shone and then
faded on.
