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!”

Diversity – Thought for the day!

“The most dangerous phrase in our language is ‘We’ve always done it this way!’

I read this quote earlier today. It struck me as perhaps being at the root of much of the dissension currently happening in the USA and in various countries around our planet.

Definitely something to not only think about but also to act upon!

Have a great day,

If You Love Hummingbirds, you’ll love this one!

When I lived on one of the peaks of the Chehalem foothills in Oregon, there was a glorious wealth of hummingbirds everywhere. I miss them. Zipping and darting, here and there, they remind me in a way of an ethereal love you can’t quite hang onto as much as you’d like – anyway. 🙂

Enjoy this wonderful video!

Thank you, I hope this brightened your day a bit,

Retro, Campy and In All Ways Cool!

IMAG4089

Okay, everything about the 60’s is amazingly retro. In my opinion anyway. And Oh My Gosh, this bed. I just had to post and comment on it. From a scene in the very campy movie “Our Man Flint” starring James Coburn (spoof movie that’s a take off on the James Bond spy movies of that era and great fun).

But isn’t the bed just too … well … everything? Don’t you want one? I know I do! And if you’d like to watch the movie – here’s the youtube link: Our Man Flint   Be sure and grab the popcorn first!

Hope your weekend is being a good one!

Rainy Day Blues

It has certainly been a week filled with sad and depressing news, coupled with an amazing amount of rain in many places.

Not surprising, it becomes very easy during these times to feel melancholy. Blue. Even depressed. We all have them. Those sad days. Today is not one of my sad days, I’m having a very good day today, but I was reminded as I watched the news of the day and the weather channel that “rainy day blues” can happen at any time, to any of us. So I thought I’d post a few words on this subject!

“Some people feel the rain, others just get wet!” Bob Dylan

They can be “okay” days if we are reflective during these times. Be “in the moment”. Experience the melancholy. Understand that those feelings shall pass, they are helping you emotionally vent that which you have been unable to adequately express or release in any other way.

And should you encounter other melancholy souls, perhaps a little bit of cheering and companionship may be just the thing to help them move beyond the sadness of their day.

On life’s lonely days recognize them for what they are – a brief passage of time where your loving heart is being made aware of it’s sadnesses and understands the importance of that recognition so that you can love more fiercely and with greater conviction.

And although you may feel lonely, know you are never alone. You are one of many and are loved!

With warmth and affection,

~ Penny
