My Secret Garden (well, not so secret :)

I made a little corner for me_
a place where I could work, and think, and breathe~

A place for Thai basil-

and purple flowers too~

A place for a secret path-

And a glimpse of "me" too~

Not every thing is to be explained~

Sigh- I adore this view~
(of Atlantic Beach,NC- looking at the Sheraton pier)

A little boy with a baseball...and passion- makes me think of someone I love.

cool clouds on a hot evening

Something is hiding here~

A tree which has captured my unworthy heart

I miss July and it's oppressive heat...
like I never have before.

I love this...

"There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills."

- Buddha

The same is true about the "doubt of oneself"- of our ability, and power, and presence.
And the doubt that our love, extinguished or burning brightly, makes a difference. It does, and it did~ Always.


(Thank you Foamy and Rox for your comments below- I removed the post...said what I needed to say and hopefully the eyes which Fate intended to see it- did. <3 )

Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion.
I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.

-Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007)

Monday I injured my back- ouch.

Tuesday I went to see a Dr (just a sprain- but dang it hurt!) and Dad called to tell me he was getting married the day after my birthday in May.

Wed I had to see a physical therapist (she was very helpful)

Thursday my son had oral surgery to have 4 wisdom teeth removed.

It's been a busy week.
Recovery and laughter are the orders for the day... and the weekend!
