    1. Thank You, Kamal!!! 🤗❤️😊 I told Your priests on vacation joke to my boyfriend and got a great laugh! I also have told Your “You know You’ve got a bad boss when…” joke to a few friends. Everyone loved it! I officially name You Joy Spreader! Cheers, Thank You and Rock On!!! 💕😃🌀


  1. Pinwheels! Sun and palm tree pinwheels! Makes me want to run outdoors and find a sweet breeze to let them spin! Thank you for the lovely morning sunshine Katy! 🌴🌻☀️💨🌈🤗❤️🤗

    1. AH!!! I love that! Thank You, Suzanne!!! Of COURSE You saw pinwheels! Didn’t even think of it! Perhaps I was channeling the resort, IMAGINARIUM, which was designed by Willie Wonka when he handed his Chocolate factory over to Charlie!!! Let’s go! 😃💕🌀🧚🏼‍♀️🦩🌴🌈🥂🤗

    1. Aw!!! Thank You so much, Ishita!!! It is truly easy to fall into daydreams about the sea, isn’t it? May Your daydreams come to fruition in the most wonderful way possible!!! And Thank You! I hope You have an awesome week ahead as well!!! 🤗❤️🌊💕😊


  3. Can you believe that I don’t need weed to experience joy like in your poem? 🙂 You’re going to say I’m obsessed with glass, but I imagine your painting like this: the trunk of the tree painted and the sun and some of the leaves of the palms made of tiny pieces of colored glass, cut in the shape of rays and leaves and glued on the canvas. That would be neat. 🙂 Finally I go back to your poem and the happiness it exudes and say thank you for the smile. Come to think of it, visiting your blog is like trippin’ 🙂 … without weed.

    1. OH! 😅 Jo!!! I love that You came full circle with that because I started laughing at Your first sentence and wasn’t sure where You were going with this! 🤣 😅 Your vision of pieces of glass on canvas is SOOOO COOOL!!!! I swear! You are in artist in hiding!!! You have such clear vision of artworks that come through You. I say if there is even an inkling of curiosity in Your heart/soul to pick up a paintbrush or some glass or…..anything….and to create….I sincerely think things, beautiful things, would start just tripping out of You! (Accidental pun there! 🤣) Not trying to push You into anything….but truly….I’ve thought that before! Ok! Back to our regularly scheduled reply! 😅 THANK YOU! I absolutely love this: “Come to think of it, visiting your blog is like trippin’ 🙂 … without weed.” Crazy awesome! Cheers and huge hugs, sweet friend!!! 🤗❤️😊

      1. Yes, your blog is my semiweekly dose of beauty. 💕 And I’m addicted already. 🙂 I smile every time I see a new post. Was I lost in translation? Doesn’t “trippin'” mean being high on something? Is not what you meant with your title? Cause your poem suggests exactly that. And I love it! It’s just I’m happy without any substance help. 🙂

        1. You’re the sweetest! Thank You, Jo!!! And YES! You’re gonna laugh….”trippin'” DOES generally mean (MOST often, probably!) being high on something…but when I wrote that title that didn’t even cross my mind. Didn’t even occur to me ’til RIGHT NOW reading Your comment! Lord have mercy! My brain is on it’s own little planet at times! 😃 There’s a wonderful song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers called ‘Road Trippin’ and that’s what I was thinking of when I wrote it. Trippin’ as in taking a trip! 😅 Can’t even believe the coolness of the other meaning that goes just as well if not BETTER with my poem and artwork. Completely eluded me!!! 🤣 Can’t stop laughing. Sigh. Huge hugs Your way!!! Thanks for starting my day with laughter! 🤗❤️🌻❤️☀️❤️😊


    1. Thank You, Mrs. Wayfarer!!! And it really is true, isn’t it? Fun to remember!!! Wrote this for my beautiful man and was gifted one of his lovely smiles when I read it to him. Yay!!! Stamp my passport once again!!! 😅❤️🤗
