Night Travelers

Night Travelers

The further I walk
the higher I go
The longer the climb
it seems the less I know

I cannot be that which I am not
I cannot hold in my hand what I've not got

Through darkness
Through rain
under a thousand night skies
That which is hidden
compels me to climb

Better With You Than Away

Better With You Than Away

I am like an albatross
laboring to and fro
busy with the needs of the day
building bringing hoisting
then flying up and away
to rush in and down
I carry all that I can.
Soaring toward the sun, blind-is my thrill
wind all about.

I am like a night train
hug the track
I streak by quiet
My load it creaks upon the rail
as I drag on by
and then I am there, gone.

I am as the kite that soars
with string flying
I am a happy song-
an invitation to dance along.

Let’s take our time
Let’s dance a jig
Let’s raise a glass
Let’s wear a wig
A boisterous cry
an outstretched arm,
our chorus raised:
“Come join our song!”

I am better with you than away.

Good Morning "Y'all..."

Why Hello All!!

Having arrived back from vacation, I find myself 
busy catching up and tending to my daughter who will be 
returning to High School shortly (and then my son will be back off 
to college!) Our vacation to Milwaukee to see my family was wonderful. 
Here are some tidbits (please forgive occasional clarity 
issues on photos as I am using an old Olympus camera 
until my nice camera returns from repair in about 3 weeks or so...
I am missing my good camera sorely!) 

Top: A beautiful light pink day lily in our front yard is blooming well!

Middle: The front yard wild flowers were calling this morning, 
gently waving in the cool mountain breeze. The bees seemed 
(to me) to be sleeping on my flowers :-)

Bottom: O.K. Barbie is 'stylin' again... :-) Featured here 
on a red-haired vintage bubble cut Barbie doll (I always 
feel like I am commenting on a fashion show at this point :-) ) 
is a tan, fiery red and black silk (bodice) and satin (skirt) 
evening dress with a hand made matching purse (that was hard 
to sew!) As you can see, the doll currently has no shoes as vintage 
Barbie mules are quite expensive!!!!!!! Hence, the shoeless doll! 

Enjoy your day, friends...
