Still a dreamer…Old Memories and New Hopes

Valentines Day 1971

There was an elegant jewel of a shop called Georg Jensen. I have a magnificent piece of jewelry from that very shop. A large sterling silver heart on a most architecturally beautifully linked chain. Engraved With love and my husband’s name and my two sons. Another lifetime ago. Valentines Day 1971 and like all occasions celebrated grandly with cards, flowers and love….and now it’s 2014 and as commercialized as the holiday is, I still yearn for the days when. I don’t like to wish away the days, but I do wish it was going to be February 15th tomorrow. To all who celebrate, I wish a love….ly Happy Valentines Day. Hold your memories close in your heart.


I have been asked to blog for URAWarrior. Bershan Shaw is an inspiration. Her site is filled with wonder`filled stories. If you have the time, please visit the site and enjoy. I have two posts and would really appreciate if you are able to read and any comments you would like to make. One is called Self Love, and the other Happy Valentines Day. Thank you kindly with appreciation for your time. Hope you enjoy mine and the stories about so many lives. We all have a story.

Snow Snow…go away….You’re not even pretty anymore

There comes a time when enough is enough. Living in the city, the snow is really only lovely when it’s falling and then it becomes either slush in the streets or huge drifts that make it impossible to get over, unless helped by at least two men…and then the treacherous ice. That awful feeling of thinking your head will be cracked on the sidewalk, and then what? Someone will have to rummage through my purse or cell phone to notify next of kin. Oh yes, it would be just lovely if I lived in Connecticut with a roaring fireplace, all cozy and hanging in with someone you would like to be snowed in with, but that too, would be a bit much after a few days. So at my age, I shouldn’t wish the months away and just enjoy all the moments of dark wintry nights…but always thinking of spring flowers and warm summer breezes. A few quotes to pass the lovely ice and snow storm that is coming our way tomorrow. “In your hands winter is a book with cloud pages that snow pearls of love.” Aberjhani….”Then come the wild weather, come sleet or come snow, we will stand by each other, however it blow.” Simon Dach…..”The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.” Lao Tzu…. “.As soon go kindle fire with snow, as seek to quench the fire of love with words.” William Shakespeare….”Snow was falling, so much like stars filling the dark trees that one could easily imagine its reason for being was nothing more than prettiness.” Mary Oliver…..”Winter always turns to spring.” Nichiren Daishonin…..”A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.” Carl Reiner………………………………….and my favorite…”I used to be Snow White, but I drifted.” Mae West……………………………..Happy Winter!!!!!!!!!!!!

One Last Attempt…..and then let it go

I thought I would ask if any followers on Blog, Twitter, or Facebook, knew anyone in Henrico County, Richmond, Virginia who by chance knew anyone who found my treasured silver link bracelet. All they need to do is contact me, or return to Regency Mall, or Henrico County Police Department. If wishing could make this happen, then I Wish, I Wish, I Wish…..Thank you kindly.
