My Life...

Free spirit and gypsy soul...


Rick, my Daughter's new love, my crazy 21(Jan.1) year old grandson, my Pops, Piper my daughter and Michael my Brother...

My beautiful Mother and ever-tolerant Step-pops, Bill...and MY Florida...Soul Sisters, Theresa and of course my dear friend of 15 years Barb...heart of Sister's Garden...My country...(and beyond)...
The Pink Chateau...my palace...my paradise on Earth...


My Iowa...





My Heathen...





What's in a life...family, home, creatures...all the things that makes us the beings we are. The things we love, my daughter and her new love, my only Grandson, my crazy, wonderful Father and my brother...my beautiful Mother and Stepfather...my Florida. All things that make me tick as an individual, the things that have sculpted my life into the paradise that I AM.


My Iowa and my Florida, all places dear to my wistful, gypsy soul. This is the stuff that makes me whole. Good friends and a trusty companion...though at times I wonder why, as my little Scratchy exhibits her terrier lineage and tests my good nature.


But my small world encompasses all the beauty one can fit into a hopelessly romantic soul. Landscapes and past memories fill my heart with a sense of LIFE...a grand gesture of Nature to fulfill a small void in the universe...it's my void. Blessed in many ways, it is the little things that make me whole...a bee, a hillside, tracks in the snow...my lil' pink chateau. My Sisters of the soul, Barb and Theresa and Gemma and Cathie...funny how you just know that certain souls have a stronger connection in your psyche, they allow you to be you under any circumstance, never questioning...


All in the circle of life and I'll gladly trip into the unknown with my lil' furry heathen and all the wonderful souls I have encountered in this magic world called BLOG. My thanks to the Universe for all the paths I have driven... for me...and you....and of course, Scratchy.

I am so touched to know that you consider me one of your soul sisters! I knew from the moment I met you we had a connection that went without saying! It still amazes me to this day all the things that we have in common. Little things that I like and can't imagine someone else likes them equally as well! Freaked me out when I found out about the pink candy! I enjoy every minute I get to spend with you, and can't wait to come back for another visit. BUT.....I will wait for warmer weather!! Hah! You have a beautiful mind and a strong will, characters I like in a person. If it weren't for the blog, we would have never met! What a waste that would have been!

This is quite possibly your best post, beautiful woman. Thank you for reminding me of all I have, even when it seems like I don't have much. You've grounded me today, pulled me down from the ceiling where I was hanging upside-down by my fingernails.

I love the pic of you on the bike -- wish I could have known you some 40 years ago!

It is so inspiring and encouraging to read this beautiful post. Really identify with it ... my own philosopy is 'Giraffitude! Finding out who you are and sticking your neck out to achieve your dreams with integrity, respect for others and gleeful fun!'

I am back! And I find this incredible posting! Don't laugh but the tears are flowing! I don't know why!

And you are on a bike! O wow! That is my secret love! Not sure where that comes from either, especially as I have only once had a ride one!

Dearest soul sister, do you realise you are sharing your paradise with others? That indeed, we see more and more that the paradise we wish to find could just be right around us as it has always been!

Missed you! It's been a rough few days! Difficult to keep the frustrations down! My dear partner especially found it all very difficult! But now we are calm together again! And I feel I can spend a few hours here blogging before collapsing into bed!

HUGS!
