Blog Escape

We hunger for change,
but not too much too fast.
We like to invest ourselves 
in things we think will last.

Our blogging world
is a treasure to me,
making a frame
around wild seas.

When a blogger shares
some life event
it deepens our

It also helps us
feel less alone.

Someone to
see us, hear us,
to care.

So what's going on?
Just a lot of normal change!

Sharing with you
puts it all
in perspective.

Exciting developments
to follow in time.
Thanks for lingering.
You help me
feel fine.

Isn't it wonderful that our blogging friends can lift our spirits? There's truly a world out there filled with people who care. And I love the quote about our magical world waiting for our senses to become sharper. ;)

I try to escape my blog, but it tracks me down!


Lynn said...

I love coming by your blog, Cloudia - I don't always comment, but just know I love your photos and consider it a little escape for me! Blog friendships are wonderful and I count some of my blog friends as close friends - even though we have never met in person.

You're very right there Cloudia! Great lines


Karen S. said...

Aloha Cloudia, your post is spot on! I'd probably plant myself in a tree and stay there forever (I'd be a fixed people watcher and friend of the incoming birds, and squirrels) never wanting to get down, well unless of course some big handsome fireman came to my rescue. If I wasn't a blogger. I kid you not. We are a fine group of folk, here to share the good with the bad and everything else.

Cloudia said...

I love each of you very much. I'm touched by these comments, and you will be the FIRST to know about our developments (all good)

RedPat said...

Blogging is my escape especially on days when I think I can't handle what is going on around me. That is why so many of your quotes give me a real lift, Cloudia! Looking forward to your good developments! ;-)

Even (and some days particularly) the serious things benefit from laughter. And hooray for the warmth and the wonder of the blogosphere.

ANITA said...

William Kendall said...

The Yeats quote speaks to me today!

Teresa said...

Amazing quotes! I love the pictures, too. I'm trying to do several things at once and being reminded to laugh was quite helpful!

Couture Carrie said...

PS very cool fact about the palaka!

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

I am laughing every day.

Nice shot of the people lined up for what I'm guessing was a Fireworks show by the sign. - I like the shot of the vapor trail in the sky.
Always nice quotes to read and ponder.

My "virtual" friends are very important to me. It's amazing how uplifted I feel knowing that you send positive thoughts my way from time to time.
Hope you have a great weekend planned. I'm going to a gallery opening tonight. Very excited!

Cloudia said...

I DO send good intentions to you each!
