1. I cannot believe how fitting that poem is to your circumstances. Wow, wow, and wow again. You are wide open and receptive, and always catching those signs.

    Have a beautiful day, Melodye.

    • Thank you for the gift of your supportive words yesterday–and for teaching me to express myself through creative journaling. Yes, the universe is speaking, and I’m awestruck by her messages. But I also appreciate that you helped me give her a new voice. *hugs you back*

    • Isn’t it gorgeous? The magic goes deeper than that one Sutra, though. I’d never heard of Sutras before. (Well, other than the Kama Sutra, of course. I lived through the 70s, after all.) But now I’m inspired to read more!

      I hope you had fun in Spain (pictures, please), but I’m very happy to welcome you back.

      • Thanks, Melodye, it’s good to be back. And I did post a family photo on my FB page. I’ll post something here at LJ too, I’m sure. 🙂

        And I have read some other Sutras, but it was a long time ago. Now you’ve made me very curious to go back and delve deeper into them. Let me know what you find!

        • They are dense reading, which is one reason I didn’t find them all that appealing before now. Check out the link underneath that poem–The Radiant Sutras are a very accessible translation (at least for me).

  3. Re: The One Who Has Always Been, Who has seen much worse than this, Is still here.

    George uses some very dark imagery in this passage, but his basic message seems very similar. Thanks for sharing it with us here!

    And thanks also for your kind words. They are healing, in and of themselves.

    • So glad you liked that poem! It really speaks to me. What’s that saying: When the student is ready, the teacher will appear? It’s proved itself true in my life, over and over again.

      I’m wishing you a joy-filled day, as well!! xo

  4. You just forgot for a moment. . . .

    You forgot that you have the Peace that passes all understanding =)

    And when you remember, doesn’t it feel AMAZING!

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. That poem is so fitting! It’s amazing what finds you when you open yourself up to the universe.

    I love Angel Face roses and miss not having them around my deck like I had in South Reading. I’m seriously thinking of transplanting all my daylilies down to my cat burial garden and sending an order to Jackson & Perkins for Angel Face, Moondance, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and Sundance.

    • It’s astonishing, really. I hope I never lose my sense of wonder — or my openness to receiving all the universe has to offer.

      Angel Face roses are so very fragrant. And for three years now, they’ve been the first to bloom in our garden. I’m not familiar with the others you mention. Are they equally fragrant?

      • I like the Floribunda roses more than Hybrid Tea roses, as they are more disease resistant

        Moondance is a creamy white rose with a sweet raspberry scent

        Our Lady of Guadalupe is a silvery pink rose with ruffled blooms

        Sun Flare is a lemon-yellow rose with a mild licorice scent

        Then there is Enchanted Evening which is a lavender rose with a silvery reverse that has a powerful citrus smell.

        Cinnamon Twist is a not orange, and not quite coral colored but rather light and dark variations with a spicy scent

        Hot Cocoais a rose with a chocolately orange to dark red with a deep rusty orange reverse

        Sexy Rexy, has fully double, salmon-pink blossoms with a fruity aroma.

        And if you like roses that change color during the season, French Lace has ivory to light apricot buds that open to classic white blooms becoming a soft coffee-tinted apricot color, and it has a light fragrance.
