… is simply
Thank you to all my loving blogging friends,
there are a bunch of you out there and I appreciate
every single one of you!
Lost amidst the meadow’s view
forgotten flower poised so true.
Lingering in the morning air
none to breath thy fragrance fair.
Silked, unfolded petals wide
forgotten flower, you abide.
Forgotten flower still unseen
and yet you reign, you are a queen.
For unbeknownst to all this day
crowned with sunshine’s golden rays.
Morning dew with sparkling glow
jeweled petals did bestow.
You’ve become a radiant sight
although unseen, your glory’s bright.
Unfortunate who cannot see
unwitnessed still, for all you be.
Forgotten ’til there does appear
someone of worth who’ll hold your dear.
Forgotten flower never fear
your time for view is coming near!

Philosophical Thought of the Day!
Infinity’s view of things places humanity as fleeting and of momentary importance!
Universally speaking, even as the least of us (humans) dwell on the most, of what we may become, I have determined that in the larger view of things – there may well be no larger view of things.
From the perception of being considered a mere grain of sand located within the cosmic shores of the Universe, I must humbly conclude that the “I” that is me has no potential value lest it be right now within this absolute moment of time.Here and now I can make a difference. Here and now I can effect a change. I can be causation, make a stand. Should I desire to do so … or not!
Infinity will carry on quite blissfully experiencing naught but a momentary thought of what I might have accomplished, regarding future potential with the eternity of my time!
Thank you for stopping by,
My friend Lisa, at ZEEBRA DESIGNS & DESTINATIONS (& PLAYAMART!) (an excellent artist) invited myself along with others, to sketch images in pencil and then post them on Thursdays. For those of you who love to draw, today is a good day to join in the fun. Just be sure and let Lisa know so we can all come to view your pencil drawing.
I decided to sketch a dandelion with a bee on it, tucked in the corner of the yard. He posed long enough on the yellow flower while I quickly sketched in the outlines and then flew off. While I did get the basic outline and shading done, unfortunately I did not complete it in time for today’s post. So instead …
I am showing a sketch I did some time back of one of my favorite musicians Adam Hurst, with his Gypsy Cello (Hand made by him btw – one of a kind). This is an informal sketch rather than a portrait as I only had his videos to work from, however Adam liked it, so that’s something. And it was fun to draw!

Yes, for those of you who have started to follow A Penny for your thoughts this quote was taken from today’s post. I guess I really wanted to make a point to as many as possible about our need to relax a little bit more in our too busy daily lives! I hope the point was made, be good to you – you’re worth it. Going crazy from living an insane pace isn’t.
Is it not fascinating that we, human beings, are gifted from birth with so many working processes and capabilities. Attributes (sensory, mental, physical and spiritual) enabling us to embrace, with a wonderful fullness, the miraculous mystery of life itself.
Instead, many human beings chose to view life (at a distance) making judgement calls through the limiting lens of insecurity and fear.
They see life’s inconsequentialities (now that’s a substantial word isn’t it, especially when it means something so very simple – “that which lacks importance”), but they/we leap upon these trivialities making of them meanings of importance, building upon our (and others) manufactured fears instead of nurturing truths that lay within and all around.
But there you have it, the nature of the human “being”. Are we programmed to think so negatively, or has some portion of our “flight or fight” survival mechanism morphed it’s way into this state of being/existence.
I, for one find this a most undesirable trait and “state of existence” to live within.
May I recommend and strongly encourage you to consider a move – from this “state” of being to new territory. One that includes the richness of all that life has to offer. It’s out there, this vast unexplored (for many) territory of being. Yours for the asking, yours for the believing, yours for the doing.
Do not allow your mind to be “house bound” as the result of fears and misconceptions. Open yourself up and live. That is what life is all about, after all! But its still up to you to determine the aspect of your being, your choice – as always!
… In closing, beautiful and enabling words from a woman born without the attributes almost all of us take for granted; vision, hearing and for many years speech, yet she managed to overcome her adversities and indeed fully explored the richness of life itself. If she can do this, why can’t we?
