This Blogger-Sphere of Ours

A     L     O     H     A   !
 Sky? Lake? Which is which?
Lovely just to wonder.


There are gifts everywhere
for those hearts
that find,
and especially those
who Share them!




Light Up the Hill, Evening Sun of February

" That hurt we 
embrace 
becomes joy. 
Call it to your arms 
where it can 
change. "

Rumi










Cat Who Patrols Parking Area "B"

" Flow with 
whatever is happening 
and let your 
mind be free. 
Stay centered 
by accepting 
whatever 
you are doing. 
This is called
The Ultimate. "

Chuang Tzu 




 =^..^=  






When the shimmer of
an insects wing 
in flight
fills you with delight,
your ear attentive 
to the shooshing
and wooshing of
 leaves in the breeze;
The grass chorus joining
in fluent Grass-ese,
How then to endure
Shakespeare's 'Idiot's Tale'
all sound and fury in
service to?

Exactly my point.
It takes more than 
Special Effects
to win hearts.

 Art needs resonance,
Story an arc (or two),
unobtrusive media-
Good writing, 
is one example.
Like great actors
it disappears 
in the ' character '
not drawing attention
to Itself.



Some themes endure
through history,
in every Culture-
If you can recognize some
of these Archetypes,
or better, know their 
truth in your life,
then perhaps
you are a story teller
who can enthrall
on a street corner
at Dusk, or
Who writes 
a World
that this world
clamors to enter.

Then Ink & Film
and shared imagination
of a generation
will wrap you in
ermine, awards
determined Reward$
Legendary Creative
Statu$ !

Blogger PLEASE!
Wake Up
from your dream.

Just find the right Quote,
a picture of a boat,
a sunset (again!?)
a four legged friend -

And put something 
UP for tomorrow
in this
 Blogger-Sphere
of Ours.

Your garden,
your street,
your photo,
mean more to me
than the latest
empty block-buster.

I value the GOOD
stuff!

Thanks for visiting her,
fellow Blogger-Spherians!

The lake scene is puzzling but I like the skyline of the buildings reflecting the sunlight. Photography is so interesting and inspiring.

You are stalking the stalker in Parking Lot B. Wouldn't want to break the Blogmood by sending a snow pic from the Mainland. Mahalo for sending the warmth to my computer next to the negative-2 windowsill.

Beautiful pictures, and weighty thoughts.

Us bloggers have a responsibility to each other to make our little individual on-line worlds a better place. Spreading joy should be a job that we all gratefully assume.

May you have a warm, joyous day, Cloudia!

Thank *you* for making one corner of the blogosphere warming and welcoming! (Though on separate note, I've been having quite a lot of issues using blogger lately!) Love that kitty and incredible Hawaiian sun on the buildings of course:)
