Hello Beautiful People of the World! Happy Tuesday!!! And Happy Be-lated 4th of July to all my fellow Americans! I am wishing You and Yours a week that has pockets of Joy as thrilling as the coolest, most wonderful fireworks You could ever imagine!!! Cheers and Huge hugs all around!
this morning during coffee the clouds became waterfalls
their tops spilling over their huge, fluffy sides in ginormous billows of hellos!
I was absolutely stunned…
God! Why is there no one here with me to witness this? I asked outloud
isn’t that always the way?!!
as if on cue one of the tiny tree frogs that have decided my deck is a groovy place to live started croaking loudly
a breeze raced onto my deck laughing
the leaves and flowers I am blessed to live with danced a slow tango
the cottony falls kept flowing down down down
all the way into my coffee
and sooo very deep down into my smiling heart!

It’s called free LOVE balmand if You ever need an extra laugh, smile, tool or whatever to get through whatever; I’ve started posting things there that help me greatly! Cheers, huge hugs all around and ROCK ON!!!
we carry one another in ripples of light that never end
time’s a shore that erases itself with each wave of expression
we tarzan our way through the jungle of us
swinging word to word in hand and heart

Happy Sunday, Beautiful People of the World!!! I hope this finds You and Yours well!!!
I want to give a shout out of THANK YOUs!!! to all of the crazy AMAZING poets who read at our ‘Wounds I Healed/The Poetry of Strong Women’ (and some super cool men!) launch party! I was absolutely, positively bowled over!!! WOW. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You All. I ordered the book and look forward to spending time with Your words. If You’re one of those poets, please identify Yourself! I joyfully revisit everyone who leaves a “like” here; but it would be fun to know I’m visiting one of You back!
Wishing Every One a superelasticbubbleplastically Spectacular Week ahead!!! Huge hugs and Cheers!
This lovely exploration of the phases of healing which includes the poetry of both courageous women and a few inspired men is edited by the absolutely brilliant, highly awarded, #1 bestselling Amazon Author and all-round mindblowingly, generously supportive Poetess/writer/professor Gabriela Marie Milton. If You’re not familiar with Gabriela’s completely transportive, otherworldly words, please gift Yourself greatly and check her out at Short Prose Poetry! Time truly stands still in the most spectacular ways when I am inside her thoughts. I get profoundly lost and it’s a magical experience. Also, I have never ceased being amazed at her ability to do all she does and still regularly make her way around blogland strewing love and beyond-kind encouragement! Gabriela is also the publisher of MasticadoresUsa.
This exciting compilation has been published by Experiments in Fiction, a publishing house owned by Ingrid Wilson who is herself a successful poet and writer, nominated for Spillwords Author of the Year 2021. I had the pleasure of listening to Ingrid speak at a talk on this completed work about a week ago. She sounds so lovely! I look forward to getting to know her!
The incredible cover art is by Nick Reeves. It was really interesting to hear him speak of his process and it will be fun getting to know him as well!
Happy Sunday, Beautiful People of the World!!! I hope this finds You and Yours well. My mind was so joyfully blown right out of my head this week!!! I practice EFT tapping and one of my teachers I enjoy is Dr. Kim D’Eramo. I came across a vid of Dr. Kim interviewing Veda Austin, a New Zealand water scientist and Thank God I decided to watch it!!! This interview is sincerely beyond wonderful! For those of You familiar with the late, absolutely brilliant Dr. Emoto‘s incredible water studies…Veda’s dance with water has journeyed her into much deeper, even more fascinatingly intimate realms and her method is so simple and playful she teaches it to school children! I bought her book right after I watched this, and literally am finding myself crying with joy every other page….so I have to share:
Sending All of You HUGE hugs and wishes for a week that flows more Love in and out of Your beautiful heart than You ever imagined You could bear!!! Cheers!
Happy Sunday, Beautiful People of the world!!! I hope You and Yours are well!
Years ago I posted a piece of my art called ‘the welcoming committee’. I deleted it back when I took a break, and it’s since sold, but You can see it here. One of my wonderful blogland friends, Peter, suggested I paint them a peace pipe!!! And…..TAAA DAAAA!!! Finally! It’s here! 🤣 I’ve posted a tiny video below with more detail. THANK YOU for the suggestion, Peter! I’ve had so much fun playing with this!!!
lovely background chimes/music is ‘Drifting on a Cloud’ by Artful Touch
Happy Sunday, Beautiful People of the World!!! And to those in the States, Happy Memorial Day. Thank You All for the service of Your Beloveds. Wishing All of Us more Peace, Love, Compassion and Healing than we imagined possible. HUGE hugs all around. ❤️

Happy Super, Flower, Blood/Full Moon Eclipse Beautiful People of the world!!! I’ve got my alarm set for late tonight so I can actually go outside and see the eclipse! Very excited!!!
The whole time I’ve been sitting here drawing this, Cole Porter’s ‘It’s De-Lovely’ has been running circles through my brain. That’s not a bad thing!!! 😅 Speaking of Lovely, below is a youtube video (music only…sigh!) of the beautiful Ella Fitzgerald singing the song for anyone interested! I wish You and Yours SO Much LOVE and Every Single Incredible Anything Your heart/soul desires!!!
