The Nature of Magic or How about just “Nature’s Magic”!



Magic the word, can conjure up abracadabras and all types of mystical references, and it frequently does when one hears it spoken. But there’s another type of magic. My favorite kind. It’s what Nature seems to achieve, every day in millions, billions of ways on the planet Earth.


As I mentioned ~ magical!

I never tire of viewing Nature’s magic. It never disappoints and I’m constantly rediscovering all the beauty that is ours free for the viewing. And to me this is indeed magic. Nature’s magic!

Have a great day today, enjoy Nature’s magic, as you can, be safe and take care of you,

With much affection,

~ Penny

cup of morning coffeeWhen I woke up this morning I had a small list of potential topics to write about, and a few posts already written. But as I sat in the early morning sun, cup of coffee in hand, birds singing, pets laying nearby, I realized that I just wanted to write something uplifting to add to your day, not take away from it, so for you ~ A reminder in the form of a poem, of how special you are and the difference you make in the lives of others!

Have a most lovely ~ day, evening and night, to awake renewed and refreshed in the ‘morrow, knowing that you have been thought of and are loved … 

patio… Just for being you!

(Please feel free to take the “You Are Loved” photo with you, no link backs or attribution is required … just that you enjoy and share with others!) 


A Blogger’s Appreciation

Līgo Circle of Appreciation

I’m sure that a few of you have noticed that when it comes to blogger award nomination follow-ups I have been more than slightly remiss in responding.

Truth is there is a whole slew of the little guys tucked away (for safe keeping) in my virtual closet (okay maybe bulging at the seams, there’s around 30 in there, a wealth of nomination riches from some exceedingly excellent fellow bloggers -I admit to feeling overwhelmed).

When I went to add the invitation I received this morning to the group, well there was no room left in there (you’d think in cyber space there’d be all the space you need for hiding, I mean saving things away).

So without further adieu I give you the following:

I was invited to join the Līgo Circle of Appreciation by puravida, from A Taste For Adventure!

The Līgo celebration is an annual event that happens every summer solstice in Latvia. They honor those with Līgos of flowers, oak leaves, grasses and plants. They join circles around bonfires and celebrate life, and their appreciation of each other.

The Līgo Circle of Appreciation was created to include fellow bloggers with the same honor.

For the duration of 22 days, starting on October 1st, 2012, 2 bloggers were invited to join the Līgo Circle of Appreciation, and then they invite two…

To Participate:

*Complete this sentence about blogging: ”A great blog is…” * Refer back to the blogger who invited you * Invite 2 bloggers to join the Līgo Circle of Appreciation on a post.

My response:

  • A great blog is every single solitary word written by every single solitary person on this planet about ever single solitary thing! (Yes I love bloggers and blogging, my life line to creativity and love!)

I’d like to invite:


Robyn Lee

And of course Nepotism is alive and well (Christina is my daughter and Robyn would be except she’s already got a most excellent mother herself. lol)!

Thanks for visiting, just so you know – I appreciate every single one of you!
