January 31

 ~ waiting for breakfast~

      dismal gray day
   matching his feathers
   his light as air armor
   warding off the cold
still a cheery countenance
  happy trilling emanates 
we should all heed his lesson
        ....and sing.......

    cushioning the world
                 the harsh barbs

January 26- Daily Life Is Not Always Pretty

The Face of Bacon

I woke up this morning and what did I see?
Five little piggies staring at me
Strung up on stakes
Heads and feet in a pot
Happy little piggies-
These are NOT!

Hog butchering day is an annual affair
A gathering of families in cold winter air
Cooking up a year's worth of family meals
Using everything from the pigs

January 24

    Just a pile of stones
      shades of gray
 seemingly all the same
     all so different
kind of like faces in a crowd
  the differences lie within.

Day Three

                   Cumulus curtains part,

         revealing an ethereal, glowing orb~

                     the first full moon

         lighting our way into the new year.

Dia Dos

Today's small stone...........

Walking thru' life, 
          one step at a time, 
                one foot in front of the other, 
                     dancing to your own inner music, 
                            marching to the beat of a different drummer..........

                ..........notes in the key of life ~ different to us all................

                                                       This is blog number 3.

                                Yes, I know, I must be crazy!!!

But, this will be a very simple blog, a chronicle of my days, each day for the rest of the year, in one photograph.

Since I am starting this a bit late - I should have titled the blog  365 minus 18!!

Giving credit, where credit is due,  I got the idea from my bloggy friend Michelle, who has done this for the last year.It's quite interesting.

Also found here, at least thru the end of January, will be a "daily stone", inspired by the blog "a river of stones"

                     Being a collector of river rocks, stones,and other nature detritus,and an amateur wordsmith,  I thought this most appropos
                                                              for me!

A stone is just a thought for the day, maybe something profound, or more than likely NOT, that comes to mind, and will be posted here.

So,  here it is, a simple blog, I hope you will follow-  let's see if I can keep up....................................


The simple act of contact and conversation is sometimes all that is needed to spur on inspiration.
