When will We – Give Peace a Chance?


Flower Purple BF 1024 Orchid S.web


Our hearts are filled with sorrow for the losses of the people of Paris.


Peace—true Peace – Poem by Walterrean Salley

Folks greeting those they meet.
Children playing in the street.
People working hand in hand
For the better of the land.
Atonement with the great I Am.
Lion resting with a lamb.
World leaders shaking hands—
In truth—not because they can.
Sacrificing at all cost
To minimize potential lost.
Such, the face of true peace,
Would bring the world much relief.

May strife and fighting ever cease
And “true” peace be increased.

A Quiet Respite

Ocean - white sailbaot 2.webDear Friends ….

It is time for me to take a brief respite.

I will be out on the high seas gathering energy from the wind and salty air:
Listening to the Music of the waves.

I will be ever vigilant to catch up on all of your blogs upon my return.

In my absence, there will be a great many things that
you’ve done that I will, no doubt, lose sight of.

Please feel free to send me a note on those you’d like me to read.
It would be disappointing to miss a single one of your stellar writings.

Namaste …


I will leave you with this very important health message.

Say Good Bye and Good Night to “night time” leg cramps

This exercise works wonders on circulation. It originated by the Watusi tribesmen.

It also slims you down without medication.

I have been doing these simple workout moves for a week

and I am already feeling much better.

I recommend you start right away.

This video shows what you should do daily

to help leg and knee pain and stiffness.

Once a day is sufficient for assured success!

Good luck.

Weekly Photo Challenge – (Extra) Ordinary Sea Lion

Cabo San Lucas Sea Lion.web                  Feeding Time        2015©photography by Isadora DeLaVega

A recent visit to Cabo San Lucas, provided the opportunity to capture

this rather spunky Sea Lion. The guide in our boat said they

follow the boats coming back to dock in hope that fish were caught

and will be shared. I guess she never misses a meal.

Weekly Photo Challenge – (Extra) Ordinary

Cheri Lucas Rowlands: “I expect wildly different and very personal takes on this theme, (Extra)ordinary, because our own ideas and experiences will shape our interpretations. What’s mundane yet meaningful to you? What’s a beautiful everyday thing? Or, maybe you can capture an ordinary setting or common scene that has somehow transformed — with festive decor or a new coat of paint”.

Vision: it reaches beyond the thing that is into the conception of what can be.

Imagination gives you the picture.

Vision gives you the impulse to make the picture your own.
