Sending Light and Love

Earlier today I was wracking my brain to try to figure out what to post. Then I got a call to arms from my favorite dinosaur...Rara. She wanted us to spread some kindness today, so here I am, trying to spread a little love and light.

Help yourself to all you need. There is a never-ending supply……

In these dark and troubled times it’s easy to forget how to be kind. Don’t. Don’t ever forget. We need kindness now more than ever. Hate is not the way to go. We get what we put out there. I firmly believe that. So I choose to give out light and love….to each and every one of you and beyond.

Are You Ready for More Me?? ~~ Share Your World, Week 45, 2014

Here I am, once again, answering questions put forth by Cee from Cee’s Photography. She does this every week, asks 4 questions and we fellow bloggers answer them. Why not go over to Cee’s and join us! Or just go over and visit Cee and enjoy her wonderful photos.

Now on with the questions and my answers.

 

 

What is your favorite color?

Any kind of purple. It used to be blue when I was younger, then I turned to the color red. Now it’s purple. For me it has a soothing effect.

In what do you find the simplest of joys?

I could give the stock answers, Sam my dog, books, coffee. But I think I’ll go a different way today. I find some of the simplest joys just sitting on my patio during a spring or summer day watching the birds feed at the feeder. I sometimes can sit for hours, just daydreaming about different things. That brings me joy. I get joy from reading about a friend’s good fortune. I receive joy from painting, I really must get back into it. From seeing words put together to make beautiful sentences that when strung together makes wonderful reading. From hearing the wind blow through the trees, seeing rainbows after a rainfall. Hearing that rain come down. Hearing someone say “I love you” and know they mean it, no matter how mean-spirited I may get some days. Feeling a hug, goodness knows I haven’t felt one of those for a long time. Smelling the pungent aroma of a freshly sliced green apple. Hearing a child laugh with abandonment. Knowing in the morning when I open my eyes, that I will live another day to find some simple joys in my world.

Would you prefer a reading nook or an art, craft, photography studio?

I would prefer an art studio with lots of natural light. And in one corner, tucked away there will be a cozy reading nook where  I can snuggle down and enjoy my favorite books when I’m not making art or writing.

What is at least one of your favorite quotes?

My Own Quote, it has gotten me through some rough times.
