So, once upon a time I had this grey striped sofa, or settee if you will. It was lovely and had great potential, however... It imparted a drab feeling in every room I put it in. It really wanted it... Continue reading

The most beautiful spring slowly escaped... Through early morning light of fairy tale dreams - and it became summer. Once again, and just like that. The roses flourish in ruffles and ruffles of candy colored petals. I try to grasp... Continue reading

February is such a wintery month... Beautiful diffused grey light makes me feel like I'm having déjà vu. Then I remember, it's the February light. The month when it almost always snows. And yet, residents of the land of sun... Continue reading

Miss Deezie, the magic is there just waiting for you my friend <3 For all of us! You know - your comment made me think of how, I used to live under extreme societal pressure as a kid, mean girls, bullies, trying to be proper, what will people think of you - people telling me to my face how inadequate they thought I was. I crumbled - it killed me. I loved my friends and they were just out to kick me any chance they got. As I got older I realized, I don't have to let in anyone who kills my vibe - in this case magic :-) And also, do I really care what so and so think about me? The fact is, people don't care enough about us - they just spew their negativity and then they go on living their own life. They don't truly care about us - so why do we spend so much time caring about people who don't care about us? Because people who really cared would not hurt us. And those who judge all mean and rude - well I feel sorry for them, because where must they be in their lives? Not a place I want to be. So I decided early on, A) I am no longer doing anything I do not want to do & B) I am not letting anyone into my realm who I do not want in, period. That is the only power I have, the only power I have is how I am going to live and how I am going to feel. So, if I don't think you are nice, buh bye ;-) I mean, when you really get to thinking about it ------ I ask myself, do you care and give so much power to (invent a name, let's call her Salami) - So I ask myself.. Do you really care so much about what Salami thinks that you will alter your life to suit how she thinks you should live? If today was your last day on earth, would you choose Salami to determine your joy and how you will live out your last day? NOOOO, I tell myself no, no way Jose! And so, let's call judgmental people Salami from now on - does salty Salami have power over you? Because she certainly has no power over me :-) hahahahaha! And those are the types of things I talk to myself about when I'm feeling those feelings. All human and natural -but if we handle it with a sense of humor and practicality it really makes sense right? Magic abounds, I just need a tiny slice - let's all take a slice shall we? Looove, V <3 <3 <3

I LOVE Anne, she was a HUGE part of my childhood, insert big heart! <3 I am not around many like minded people either in the physical, but the internet friends are that much more special to me. And I love tapping into my creativity alone a lot, so I've learned to love my happy alone time. It's hard to find just the kind of friend we dream of because we are all so darn hard to get along with as humans, hahahaha! <3 <3

Oh I love that, Thumbelina style. I know growing up and life experiences try to seal away that little bit of imagination and magic we are given as children, but it is always there. We just have to find our own road map to ourselves, and always be open to the possibilities ;-) <3 <3
