Inward Times Radiant or Fade-ient?

A     L     O     H     A   !

Reflective Lady Self

“Sometimes,

you have to look 

back 

in order to understand 

the things 

that lie 

ahead.” 

Yvonne Woon






Sunset Mandala


" Now and then
 it's good to pause 
in our pursuit 
of happiness 
and just 
be happy. "


Guillaume Apollinaire








Morning Daggers:
SUN V SHADOW

or is the 
next one
The Shot?



I like the cherry tail light
in the first,
and the strip of
sub-tropic green
in the second.
You?

=^..^=
Right now,
 I feel temporarily 
"filled up" 
and need to digest 
much. 
[No, nothing HUGE,
Thank God,
& thank You
for caring]

Time alone 
feels like a 
healing treatment. 

At such times
 I am 
more neutral,
less
 outgoing/radiant 
in public.

BUT
In ONE area of 
my life I:
 I meet cool people,
enjoy social support, 
creative outlet, 
a modest measure 
of success, 
a daily work-out 
on multiple levels.
Every Day-

No Matter the 
Weather
inside
or out!

You already know,
I'm talking about
Y O U,
who find my post
a place worthy
of your time!

Many of You
are bloggers sharing 
Your particular world
in Your particular way.
I am ALWAYS
rewarded by my
visits to You!

You are very present
to me. You have taken
me places I would never
know, see, appreciate.
[Yes, Inside and Out]

You inspire me.

Your comments
humble & 
sometimes,
thrill me.

Mahalo
means "Thank You."

I hope your day is better than mine. It's snow/ice outside and the main heating unit in the house stopped working last night :(

Mostly the blogosphere is a nice escape into a more peaceful world for me.

Too brilliant of shrieking lights; (I'm not used to morning suns.) Careful driving in the streets with those light spears. Alone time is good; the world can be quiet sometimes, while the waves just whisper.
Nothing exciting in sunny Kansas today; just dodging long, falling icicle spears!
Aloha, DrumMajor

For a few hours in the morning I read blobs and make comments it's a small chat with the world widens your ideas and helps you become a world citizen.

It also helps my spelling.
