I am thankful for Harula in leaving her footprints in my site, her site Words that Serve  and learned about acrostic on Gratitude.  She has complied a series of words and created a poetic vertical crossword puzzle.

Thank you, Harula. I am feeling blessed.

The Hummingbirds

“The Hummingbirds”

In this book
there are many hummingbirds—
the blue-throated, the bumblebee, the calliope,
the cinnamon, the Lucifer, and of course
the ruby-throated.

Imagine!

Well, that’s all you can do.
For they’re swift as the wind
and they fly, not across the pages but,
like many shy and other-wordly things,
between them.

I know you’ll keep looking now that I’ve told you.
I’m hungry to see them too, but I can’t
hold them back even for a moment, they’re
busy, as all things are, with their own lives.
So all I can do is let you know
they’re here somewhere.

All I can do is tell you
by putting my own hunger on the page.

With her passion  on nature especially the birds, I’ve learned to distinguish all kinds of feathered friends. Not only that, there’s cat and mouse, too, which is my favourite story posted here.

Thank you, Emily, for allowing me to use one of your photos. Perpetua.

Guest Post: RARASAUR!!!!!!

animation of sun

Today, the sun set over me. Her rays warmed the air and her shimmering power stilled the clouds. Fragments of orange and silky webs of red-purple shot around in all directions, kissing the ground with pink light. The sun herself glorified in the show–radiating inward as much as outward–reveling in her great celestial roundness and yawning into her cosmic nap.

Waiting In Between Times

What do you do when you are in you’re in between times waiting to get the treatment that you can walk again?

Jim Kaszynski “THE IDEA MAN’ life changing adventure from Thailand raising funds for an orphanage, to walking 500 miles of Camino de Santiago de Compostela, to losing his mobility ending up at Mayo Clinic for treatment does not dampen his zest for life.

This is a video clip that he took at the clinic. I have no doubt that Jim will be able to stand up and dance again.

Please keep him in your prayers and send him positive energy for his recovery. Blessings to all and thank you.

I will inspire being ordinary

Train

“I will inspire by being ordinary.There are too many “inspiring” stories of people who leave everything behind in order to travel the world. I will tell stories of people who stay, who find contentment in what would seem a humdrum life, who work and go home and save $10 a month in their travel fund, most of the paycheck having already gone to milk for their kids and educational funds and utility bills…and who, after 10 years, finally go on a 5-day trip to Paris. I will celebrate the courage of working with what you have, the heroism of looking at the banal and saying: “This is my life and I am happy with it.”

Suicide and the Narrative of Choice

seeker:

COMPASSION… what we need is compassion for people who are suffering from any disease. For people that commits suicide or survive suicide, blame does not help or saying How can you do this! LEARN, we need to learn from another. I am still learning from my own history. This post is the best one I can relate to. As for now, I am filled with gratitude being alive. Faith, family, care givers and bloggers who shared their experience. Let us help one another understand with compassion.

Whilst reading about the tragic death of the great Robin Williams I repeatedly stumbled upon the narrative of choice. Places like Psychcentral spoke about suicide being an “insidious choice”, but a “choice” nonetheless, so much so that they repeated the word to drive the message home. Meanwhile, whilst perusing social media I repeatedly came across variations of “people who commit suicide are selfish”, “how can anyone do that to their family?”. These sorts of comments make me twitchy. We’ve all heard them before.

In my own case they were personalised and weaponised, “How could YOU do that to your children? Do YOU not care about them?” I did, that was the problem. For some time I had felt like a millstone around the necks of my family. I loved them, but hated myself and could only see the ways I made their lives worse. After 2 failed suicide attempts in…
