Life of Illusion

Sometimes, I can’t help but feeling that I’m
Living a life of illusion
And oh, why can’t we let it be
And see through the hole in this wall of confusion
I just can’t help but feeling I’m living a life of Illusion

Pow, right between the eyes
Oh how nature loves her little surprises
Wow, it all seems so logical now
It’s just one of her better disguises
And it comes with no warning, nature loves her little surprises
Continual crisis

Hey, don’t you know it’s a waste of your day
Caught up in endless solutions
That have no meaning
Just another hunch, based upon jumping conclusions
Backed up against a wall of confusion
Caught up in endless solutions
Living a life of illusion

My song of the day

Lessons

Pema Chรถdrรถn said, โ€œNothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.โ€

I wonder if this means people too?

I’m gonna guess, yes ๐Ÿ˜†

She also said โ€œCompassion for others begins with kindness to ourselves

Thus letting go of those who hurt us.. yeah

Hope

What an amazing way to start the day.

A beautiful poem sent by a beautiful soul.

To a grateful heart. โค๏ธ

โ€œHopeโ€

is the thing with feathers –

That perches in the soul –

And sings the tune without the words –

And never stops – at all –

And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –

And sore must be the storm –

That could abash the little Bird

That kept so many warm –

Iโ€™ve heard it in the chillest land –

And on the strangest Sea –

Yet – never – in Extremity,

It asked a crumb – of me.

Missing?

Missing what? Who?

Who knows…

Just gonna live the life.

There’s comfort in those words.

However, this is one of my favorite songs.

These lyrics!

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from hell
Blue skies from pain
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We’re just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground
And how we found
The same old fears
Wish you were here

It comes to me once in awhile and makes me wonder…

so much love to you.

Long time?

Feels like it anyway.
A little update…
Things are finally moving…. sort of…
I got a foundation, and a house on the property..
They just have to finish getting it together! ๐Ÿ˜ซ
Oh well, everything in it’s time… right?
Staying busy working on the yard and hanging with the most amazing people.
Those that care are always there… ๐Ÿ™‚ without agenda.

The rest are kicking rocks! ๐Ÿ˜

I also spent the better part of a day getting this little beauty together.. ok I had some crazy fun doing this.

I’m So going to plant some flowers in there come spring..

She was not impressed… lol

So yeah, I have a few kids hanging around and I figure they need their own shed so they can stay outta mine.

Old friends, a couple new ones and you know same ol stuff after ๐Ÿ™‚

Some of the lyrics:

Well I’m takin’ my time, I’m just movin’ on
You’ll forget about me after I’ve been gone
And I take what I find, I don’t want no more
It’s just outside of why our front door, yeah, yeah, yeah
It’s been such a long time. it’s been such a long time
Yeah
It’s been such a long time, I think I should be goin’, yeah
And time doesn’t wait for me, it keeps on rollin’
There’s a long road, I’ve gotta stay in time with, yeah
I’ve got to keep on chasin’ that dream, though I may never find it
I’m always just behind it
Be loved, be well

2019

Time to start a whole new chapter in this wonderful journey of life.

Your life can actually change in a year.

Remember

Love yourself

You deserve all that you desire.

Don’t settle for any less

Christmas finally

The original plan was to have a house by Christmas. ๐Ÿ˜‚ The universe has its own time.

I’m home for the first time in seventeen years for Christmas.

Nothing would stop my little family from enjoying each other.

It was 68 degrees and the sun was shining bright. We didn’t have had a lovely set of furniture or a real tree.

But we scraped together some outdoor furniture and some snacks.

It’s the best Christmas I’ve had in at least seventeen years. lol

Being with my son, daughter and their families is the best gift I could ever have. I cannot express into words just how much this means.

My grandchildren loved being outside. They were able to run and play without worry.

This was just my little family, we did have another get together with all the nieces and nephews and their families. This one was big. Another to come on Christmas Day. Lots of food and drink and of course love.

I hope you all get to be home with the ones you love. No other gift can compare.

Much love to you all and Merry Christmas!

Good news

Last year this time things were so very different.

The one thing that has remained the same?

Music!

I was picking pecans with my new trusty pecan picker and this song came on.

Memories… The only words from that time that still have the same or any meaning are the lyrics from this song…

‘Cause every time I turn around
I’m back down to one
Tell me why it feels like I’m still on the run
I need some good news, baby
Feels like the world’s gone crazy
Give me some good news, baby
Give it to me, give it to me
I need some good news, baby
‘Cause all the world’s gone crazy
I need some good news, baby
Give it to me, give it to me

Give it all or give me up
I won’t settle for enough

…………………………………………………..

Yup still not gonna settle.

Deep waters

And I’ve spent most of my life deep down inside myself
I’ve dreamt about the possibility of someone else
Who could see the things I’ve seen and steal away with me
Into the darkness we could fade because we know ourselves
……………………………………..
Starting the week with hope and a song.
Many blessings
