Happy Monday Beautiful World Family!!! Hoping You and Yours have many sweet surprises this week gifting joyful smiles!!! Sending Much Love and Huge Hugs all Around!!! Cheers!
*I must admit I will never ever ever be able to think of the words “every step You take” without thinking of the amazing STING, The Police and ‘Every Breath You Take’!!! In my mind….those are their words! Thanks Sting! 💕
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!

Happy Sunday BEAUTIFUL People of the World!!! I hope this finds You and Yours well and that the coming week gifts All of You more JOY than You ever thought possible! I’ve added a new page of amazingly cool FREE resources that help keep me positive/smiling/growing/healing through these times that can be a bit challenging. 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!!!
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! My wish for the week is that All of You know Your worth, Your wonder and that You knowingly and unknowingly gift the planet as You go about Your days! You are a miracle. Full stop. End of story. Cheers and Huge hugs all around!!!
Prints of my art (and my fine art) are available on my website: blissbaitart.com. Cheers!
dead ends a plenty and wide open bliss walk peacefully hand in hand
there are thousands of days i’m in grateful joy
and more where i don’t understand
the sun and moon, they dance their waltz
life ebbs and flows nonstop
i’ll ride this trajectory ’til God says i’m done
and this part of my lessons stops

Happy Sunday, Beautiful People!!! My blogging friend, Shashank , suggested a couple of weeks ago that I draw a map of my life….or something like that. So, wonderful Shashank; here it is!!! 😅 Thank You for the suggestion that gifted me confusion, a good laugh and a lot of fun!!! I actually started drawing this on my phone at work one afternoon and then transferred it to my computer/digital art program to finish off. Yay! Huge hugs all around! And I invite You all to check out Shashank‘s blog!!! He’s really smart, has a huge heart and is gifted on so many levels! Cheers and Rock On, All!!!
