The Lesson of The Color Yellow … Friday Fictioneers

A big shout out to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and Friday Fictioneers. An outstanding place for authors to finesse their writing style each week by writing a flash fiction (100 words or less) or short story based on a photo prompt. For more info on how you can be a part of this fun loving group of writers or to just sample their creativity, click HERE!

The crowd was spellbound.

“It’s not just about the color yellow,” she said pausing for affect. “Although if one thinks about it yellow’s a most exceptional color. After all the sun shines yellow, the moon at its brightest is a rich golden yellow and we mustn’t forget glorious spring daffodils. Yes, yellow a truly fulfilling aspect of color.”

The shining vision of loveliness continued. “You see it’s not only about color in one’s life. It’s about the absence of it and most definitely one color should never be sufficient.”

Then with a mighty sweep of her wings the angel vanished from view.

Bragging Rights! A Beautiful Painting!

Painting by Jeannette Andress copyright © 2014

In my family (if you recall the photo I recently posted) I have two wonderful sisters, each of whom I love and adore. Each are also very talented. Today my sister, Jeannette sent me a picture of her latest painting. She used a photograph taken by her son (an excellent photographer) of his children in a flower garden, as her models.

I’m sure you will agree with me this is one beautiful painting, and I am immensely proud of her. The photo is shown here with great pride and love.

Jeannette, my wonderful and beautiful sister you are exceedingly talented!

All my love to you,

Penny

Regrowth and Renewal – Yes you can!

I can’t believe it! It’s actually almost spring, here in the Northern part of Northwest America.

But I am excited about it. Waking up in predawn mornings with the sun filtering through wispy morning clouds, the cool air breezing through my open window bringing birdsong melodies – refreshing and invigorating.

I for one, am happy to embrace both the new day and the glorious beginnings of Earth’s annual renewal! Time to rethink my own personal regrowth and renewal. Overdue, actually.

It has become far too easy for all of us to get caught up in the same “everyness” of things happening in our daily lives.

Right now, small changes can truly make a difference for you when you feel in a bit of a rut.

Think about it, make it happen – You Can Do it!

Have a great week,

Love – The Most Beautiful Gift!

By veggiegretz

The Gift of Love

There is beauty in the giving of love.
There is beauty in the receiving of love.
The most perfectly universal gift:
The giving and receiving of love.
~ Always!
