Thousands of emotions
well up inside me
throughout the day.
They are released
when I dance.
More to come on this new series and why dandelion or dandelions will be in each piece.(“behaving as the wind behaves.” -T.S. Eliot) Expressionism and symbolism again. I cannot help myself..I think that way–even in every day mundane things. I also have a need to add numbers up to a total..connected to symbolism (numerology).

Last week I listened to far too MUCH news and read all the facebook posts about the same issues. I know the world seems far from perfect..and I cannot fix it. Of course, I do what I can do to help make it a better place for those in my local world and beyond especially through humanitarian causes.

Garden mint herbs of choice

Lovely Ladybug..helper in the garden.
All day slowly roasting cherry tomatoes in the oven.. rosemary sprigs, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with Mediterranean sea salt. The aroma throughout the house was divine.

Now –> A gIass or two of Merlot (for good health..of course)…
I’ll try to
