"IF"

My quote...

If"...is the BIGGEST word in the world.
Brimming with possibilities, tense with all that can be done or undone, makes what we long for, or dread-- hang in the balance of what comes after it.”

Hi Cora,
Just a quick note to let you know how much my wife and I enjoy your pictures. You have beautiful facial features which should mean you also have a beautiful spirit.

"Blush" You are so sweet and I enjoy your blog! I am nice most of the time...LOL! You know how women are...I'm no different :)
Thanks for visiting! :)

Actually, I'm in the same camp as Mr. and Mrs. Irishman. I love your face.

And that's kind of a sultry pose.

IF......IF.......I had just gotten up an hour earlier yesterday, or perhaps an hour later.......I might not have 4 friggin stitches on my left knee cap.

Mayden's Voyage said...

X~ I almost didn't post the pic...even though there is nothing wrong with it...it is not really suggestive...not terribly revealing...but there is something about it~ intimate maybe? LOL...I was hoping it was my imagination--I guess not! :)
Thank you ;)

Mayden's Voyage said...

Schaumi! What did you do? Are you ok? :) If, if, if...so much hangs in the balance :)
If I don't get to bed soon...I'm gonna be in trouble! LOL
Hope you are ok! :) I'll check in with you tomorrow...you will have to tell us all about it at TFM! :)

schaumi said...

nothing major, cora. i am fine and moving all over the place :).
since it was the knee, which gets bent a lot, the doc decided it would heal better with stitches.

PS: i'm sometimes not very coordinated and 'balanced' early in the morning..:)

I tend to look at if as an enemy, using the word if reminds me of submitting blindly to fate. No, I won't let if rule me or decide my fate, I'd rather define if myself.

I much perfer the term "I am," no I do not think that I am god as referred to in the bible. But the art of the phrase implies uniqueness and the capacity of being anything. Aggresive term versus a passive term.

Yeah I know, "who asked you?" *smile*

The picture can't be any more intimate than sharing ones emotions, thoughts and heart on the web to a bunch of strangers. :)

You look beautiful.

I am thinking that you are being most rightly so. 'if' is being full of the possibilities. I am in agreement with you.

But I am not being in agreement with Mr Irishman. I am not being with beautiful features of the facial regions but I am not agreeing that that is meaning that my spirit is being twisted like a sandshoe that has seen in its days further days that were being better than todays day. That I am thinking so.

X. Dell said...

Cora, the pose is sultry all the same.

Schaumi, first the insomnia, and now this? Is there any chance you can install a coffeemaker into your nightstand?

schaumi said...

/bark bark bark

i was thinking more along the lines of adorable.

/grrrr

Mayden's Voyage said...

Jeessh...You guys make me laugh! :)

Anteros- for me, "if" is the split second before I make a decision...it is the moment from which I derive power-the power of the "choice". Once I make the choice..."I am" is what follows :)

X- To me- your mind is sultry! Full of interesting and percolating stuff! :)

schaumi- Actually, I took the pic, used a timer! :) It was a fun few hours...can't show the rest! LOL!

Tikka- YOu are right. Beauty is on the inside...along with wisdom and grace :), which can not be seen...but it can be experienced. Thank you for stopping by! :)

Lux...friend, thank you :)

K9...never seen anything as adorable as you! bark/bark!!! :)

"If" is just fine. It's when it gets together with "only" that "if" becomes completely depressing.

Its Sunny and 75 here right now. We are expecting rain tomorrow (just in time for me to go on a rafting trip with my 13 year old son and his class... GREAT!!! lol)Actually it will be postponed if we get thunder... so pray for thunder for me! lol

Have fun at the beach! I wish I was there! I may be in Virginia Beach this summer with some friends... how far are you from there?

Mayden's Voyage said...

Kate, NOT far! The Va line is an hour from me :)

Let me know if you come this way :)
I'll email you my #'s and stuff, ok?

Oh...wouldn't that be fun??? :)
