Do You? Take the time to …


feel the breeze of air flowing past …

embrace each moment as it happens …

try hard not to dwell on yesterday’s woes or tomorrows fears …

respect, honor and love all life …

love deeply and live in the now of things …

nurture your awesome spirit within …

remembering …

to be, just to be!

All my love this day to you! ♡

Love, The Most Fundamental Need


Love ~ the most fundamental need we all have. To know we’re not alone but cared for by others.” ~Plh

Reach out, share your love. It will be returned. I can’t think of a better viral epidemic than the spreading of love around our planet. A global imperative for health and happiness.

When we love, we care. When we care we help. We help with the stopping of greed, cruelty, poverty, famine, hunger and senseless loss of life.

Love can do all that, on a global scale, yes it can!


They Say …



“Always remember you are not alone. Even if (in the moment of things) you are certain that you are.”


“They” say you must walk before you run …


“They” say love conquers one …


“They” say you must finish, once begun …


But … “They” don’t say how to be

when there is no one, 

and all is said and done!


As I said at the beginning of this post you are not alone. Please know in your heart of hearts that we (humans) are all connected, one to another, and while there will surely be periods of time when we each feel as if  we are separated from and facing life alone, it is not so. You are loved. ♡

Forever and Always In My Heart ~

Sleep now … my love,
I’m keeping you forever and always,
in dreams, and memories
the beating of my heart keeping endless time to the rhythm of your soul.
Your words penned from far away,
so very lovely,
for eyes to see,
for mind to dwell on
and heart to feel …
Fitting in most perfectly
with the reoccurring memory of being in your arms.
Sleep now, my love,
within the heart there is a place that has no knowledge of separation.
And so we will always find each other in our arms …
held safely fast,  protected from all harm,
never truly alone in our forever love.

Bloggaria ~ A fairy tale of bloggers! Introduction

Penny L Howe:

Throwback Thursday – Once upon a time there was a group of awesome bloggers, and they’re still around (Clicking on their fairy tale name will take you to their actual blog ‘in most cases’)! Two years later – there are even more awesome bloggers! In honor of all bloggers (with some fantasy fun thrown in) I’m reblogging “Bloggaria” Hope you enjoy! :) Penny

Originally posted on The Why About This:

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far away, (I always wanted to write those words) there lived a beautiful princess and a handsome prince. But this story is not about them. We already know they lived happily ever after, as is the way with such things.

This cute and sweet, yet powerful and moving tale takes place in Bloggaria where the land proliferates with active and happy Bloggers. A most joyous place to be. There were constantly those from elsewhere always relocating to Bloggaria. Yahooians, even people from the mighty Googlanations would show up with all their talents requesting refuge, the Youtubians most frequently.

Of course the Bloggarians (henceforth known as bloggers) never said no, filled with love and tenderness they never turned anyone away. They were gentle and big hearted people who loved to share their land with others. Their motto “Ad blog est ad amorem, ad blog…

Love – The Greatest Source of Inspiration!


“Some of the greatest things created by man had their inspiration from LOVE!”

Not only that, but probably the most sustaining “glue” we humans have when relating to one another. I know there are many other emotions that can and do effect us in the course of our lives, Both negative and positive. But I believe Love stands alone when it comes to “Why” humans are still around. A sort of moral imperative, if you will.

The need to be loved. The need to love. HUGE … when if it comes right down to it and I do honestly believe the greatest source of inspiration and motivation that we humans will ever have.

I know it’s the reason I always have hope for us, our future and our planet. The “Love” factor will carry us through.


Hope your week is being good for you, thank you for stopping by,

With affection,


A Lullaby – You are Loved!

I wrote this song a little bit ago. And the tune seemed to pop into my head. I am NOT a singer, at all, but I do love music. So as you listen to the tune (ignore messy studio, TV in background and my hands to ears blocking out sounds), I mostly hum, imagine an actual singer singing the lyrics below to that tune! Thank you! Have a great weekend, my friends! :) xx
Just as a mother feels the beat of unborn child
I feel the rhythm from your heart ~ you are loved.
 The music of you heartbeat so piercing and so sweet
you are special and unique and ~ you are loved.


Yes there are those bad days, bad times,
(hard, hard, hard ones too),
but, hush now, hush now, do not cry ~ you are loved.


I sing for you a heart song to nourish you within
You are safe, and you are cherished ~ you are loved.
 Let my strength pick up your spirits
carry you along.
You aren’t alone, you aren’t forgotten ~ you are loved.


You my friend so beautiful

I sing to let you know.
Do not be sad, I’m here for you ~ you are loved.
“On those loneliest days when you feel such despair
Reach out your hand, a friend will be there!”
