Serenity Sunday...week 59

“It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance. It is the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance. It is the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give. And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live.”
Bette Midler

Serenity Sunday...week 58

(Painting 'Wind From The Sea' Andrew Wyeth)

Summer Wind
The wind tossed and turned everything in its path.
Blowing lazily and without pattern,
it slowly wound itself around, enveloping me.
My eyes closed, I could feel it lapping, haphazardly at my body,
I felt the tingling of the hot summer air against my skin,
and with it came a sensual, almost erotic, thrill.

All my other senses were peaked, adding to the sensation,
lending me a sense of freedom that I never dreamed possible.

I was witness to the sweet aroma of the flowers,
the salty taste of sweat on my lips,
the sound of the wind whirling through the leaves,
and the clouds, swaying with the pulse of the wind.

It was a great feeling…to just be,
let the time wander, as I enjoyed the mysteries of nature.

I will remember that day forever.
It was…as if, the only thing that mattered,
was the very fact that I was savoring life, in all its beauty.

**We're off (Judy and me) to the Lavender Fest today at Lockwood Farm! Looks like we've FINALLY broken the heat wave...less humidity and lower temps today. Never thought I'd look forward to the mid 80's as 'cooler weather'! Have a wonderful day!

Nobody told me! or am I the only one who knows?

Imagine my surprise when walking through Target this afternoon, I stumbled upon this magazine!

Apparently, Meridith Corporation has decided to put out Country Home again! The one I picked up was dated 'late summer' and is on shelves until mid September at which time another edition will be released (around September/October)! The inside near the binding says that CH will be published 2x/yr...July and October. Maybe if we keep it sold out they will increase it and bring it back the way it should be.

YAHOO! I'm so excited I can hardly stand myself...:-)

Thanks Meredith...I really missed Country Home!
