"Join me on my hunt for new ways to see beauty and to express feeling ... to keep life simple, to notice the little things and to love it all. "

Annie Edelman

...life's journey.

"I have not lost my passion for life's journey!" she exclaimed fearlessly.

"But now, without a sense of urgency," she went on,
"I get a new perspective with every step I take".

She may have grinned with her tongue in her cheek when she told me;
" Sometimes the texture and beauty along the way will
take my breath away and I'll miss my footing on the stepping stones."
.... all this time I thought it was arthritis and sherry that took her balance.

... nothing left to say.

Some times at an ending,
there's just a great big space,
and it's not sad,
it's just that there's nothing left to say.

Don't tell the grown ups .....

It's days like this when my head is a whirl with pirates and pearls
and golden treasure with milky chocolate inside,
and my heart is dancing to songs of dandelions on a breeze.....
yes it's days like this when it is really really hard to get on with the serious stuff.
Don't tell the grown ups but these are my favourite days.

Room for some new good stuff...

It’s pretty sad to know
that it is all the bad stuff that holds us together.
Sometimes I wonder if we let some of it go
there might be room for some new good stuff.

I was always a sure bet ...

For a someone who didn't have much use for material things,
she certainly gave up a lot for a little security.
I'm sure she confused security with love
and I'm not sure if she ever did work out the difference.
If she did manage to figure it out, it was a lifetime too late for us.

...security can trap you in a place that love can't get to
but love will set you free,

I loved her,
but that just set her free from me.

...she was dearly loved by so many
but the love of many can't touch you till you can be touched by the love of yourself.

I know she loved me ... just not enough to gamble with ....
shame, I was always a sure bet!

Demons from the past ....

We all have demons from the the past.
The trick is not to let their musty fumes hijack you
from the moment you could be enjoying right now.
