I have no pictures today just a story that was passed on to me, I'm passing on in response to Rebecca's Postcards from Paradise and the wishes of the story teller> This is wonderful story and a good reminder to always be kind because everyone has something going on in their lives at some point that we're not aware of and also, some day, we may be the person needing the act of kindness.
The Cab Ride I arrived at the address and honked the horn. after waiting a few minutes I walked to the door and knocked.. 'Just a minute', answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.
After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940's movie.
By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. All the furniture was covered with sheets.
These are shadows of my expanding dream container, I'm starting to draw my attention to the real thing, the fine focus! Dreams can be both joy inducing and daunting at the same time. Right now I'm focusing on something important to me, sometimes I just want it to slip back into the shadows where it can just be without real form. But for dreams to come true and bring me JOY I must focus! Visit Meri's Musings for other Joyful encounters & Kateyeview - Don't Reject Yourself
I'm feeling a little giddy at the moment! things have moved on for me, I have a couple of things in 'the pipe line' This was my 'dreamboard' offering for Jamie Ridler's Full Moon Dreamboards from a year ago, see ~ Full Pink Moon The first exciting thing is I'm starting to create my own Photo-Blog-Book here's a sample page
on my screen, will need a bit of tweaking,
I usually assemble the whole book
and tweak at the end
when I do any DTP work.
But the most exciting thing I'm making s-t-r-i-d-e-s
is tied up in the message
of this intuitive Dreamboard ~ Full Pink Moon
It's something I've been working towards
for quite awhile, at least in my head!
I must say I'm a bit scared,
because this means
I have to step outside my Comfort Zone!
It's not in the bag yet!
It may not even get off the ground!
If it does I will be so excited
and nervous at the same time.
I'm going to have to lock my fears away,
get out of my own head
and just go for it!
Rebecca of Recuerda mi Corazon asks
How did the sun rise in you this morning? I have to answer with peace and tranquillity. Yesterday's melancholy vanished in
the vapour of dawn early whilst still sleeping, slipping back to wherever it came from? Some days are like this, feeling like there is no sun, only clouds. We know the sun rises everyday, but we're just not feeling or seeing it! Other days, it's brilliance is so overwhelming illuminating every flower, leaf, shiny surface, reflecting in every drop of water as pools of heaven.
My boat's been bobbing about on the bay of melancholy all day, my view of paradise is blurred and seems so faraway, I must wait upon the tide having faith that all things will turn, a lesson
more than well rehearsed, but really,
did I ever learn? Postcards from Paradise waiting at Recuerda mi Corazon
