My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    It is indeed a verse full of lovely thoughts. A lot of the usual noise and revelry (i.e., Mardi Gras) will be cut out this year. People all over the world are taking a sober look at lifestyles. I wonder which results will be permanent.

    Thanks so much for the touching poem, His attitude and thoughts bring back old memories to the Franciscans I came across in South America. Their attitude toward the earth, their fellow man and even the creatures of the earth was always so kind and loving. They did good where often other “missionaries” wanted to change or point fingers, rather than help. You can see my tribute to St Francis, friend of birds and animals on a path looking up at my house.

    Thank you for sharing this, Judy. How I have loved hearing birdsong out my kitchen window, and that bright nastursium I plucked from the canyon and brought home that cheers me still. This is a beautiful poem and reminder. My hope that this crisis can bring us all closer together than separate us even further. love to you

        It’s on everybody’s mind this week — at this point, if you’re not in isolation of some level, preparation is mandatory! I’m feeling a bit less depressed about it today — made some decluttering progress yesterday, and realize that I’m not going to be jailed for spending time at a deserted beach or harbor, and that won’t make me any more susceptible to disease. Shopping will become more of an issue, probably by mid-week next week. It’s no way to live, particularly in the “free world,” but it’s hopefully short-lived. I know now, though, that “solitary confinement” is not my thing!
