I have been waking up with/because of the birds, but it is all OK.
It is hard to start a post when one has be absent for so long. As I wrote in a comment on my last blog, life has taken me on a detour and I am going down a road that is not totally unfamiliar to me but has become a little more winding. At times, I just want to jump out and go home but that can't be.
I do not know if I will write again on Blogger but maybe I will be able to pop in every now and then. My computer problems continue and besides not being able to comment most of the time, there are some blogs that I cannot read because of the font. Oh how I wish Old Blogger had never changed, but all things do, don't they?
I want to thank so many of the kind and wonderful people I have met in my ten years on this site. I don't have the words to tell you how much you have meant to me and how your comments have truly lifted me up and made me feel like I mattered. We come from different places with different lives but yet, we all share being human, with feelings of joy, sorrow, pain, and gladness, and oh, how we all love to laugh. I have been enriched because of all you shared with me.
Some years ago, the lovely Susan of “The Contemplative Cat”, started a photo prompt meme and asked people to send in pictures for them and others to write a story. It was a fun exercise and I did enjoy participating in it. I wrote the following and it is somewhat autobiographical. It is the one I want to leave with you. Like all that is grown and all that is born, every life force that enters into this world has a chance to show their magnificence. We have our time in the sun and time to spread our seeds and gifts and if we tend it well, our legacy will be here forever.
