Kiss Me…

Well, as many of you know I go by Mac, which is loosely based on my last name. My Irish heritage well, I come by it honestly…through marriage and amazing luck. But give me corned beef and cabbage, color me green, by blarny don’t forget the liquor and of course, “Kiss me…I’m sort of Irish!”

Happy St. Patrick’s Day ya’all!

A Side Of Cars

One thing you wouldn’t know about me, I really love cars. My husband has taught me a thing or two over the years. When we met over 20 years ago, he use to do all the mechanics on his vehicles and even after we got married. Seeing him in his natural habitat, all covered in grease or oil, sexy! 

When we’re out, I love to point to a car and ask him if I got the name right. And I’m especially drawn to special ones that you don’t see too often. So, here’s a few of my captures. The first two are from around town. The third is our 2005 Mustang convertible. I am pretty partial to American muscle cars, although there are a few European cars I wouldn’t mind either.©

My Mind

The mind is such a beautiful and terrible thing…

Poems and Petals


My mind billows

In every direction

Flying into space

And sinking into oceans

In depths of sadness

And waves of emotions

My mind drags me high

And sinks me low

It attacks with violence

And loves with passion

It drives me crazy

And keeps me sane

My mind is my enemy

And also my friend

My only company

Surrounded by solitude

My mind is a kite

Flying in the sky

And an anchor

Keeping me

Alive

Coffee Break Time

Hey everyone! So, I’ve been taking a bit of a break from daily blogging, as some may have noticed. Don’t worry, I’ll be back in full swing soon!

In other news, I’ve FINALLY signed up for SnapChat! I know, I know it’s a surprise it took me so long. For someone who takes so many selfies and photos you’d think I’d have gotten on board sooner. Well, I’m giving it a try, as so many friends use it. Look for me at MacInBlonde, and add me if you’d like. But, for the record, I’m not sure I know what I’m doing yet!

Finally, I am looking for some topic ideas for my blog. Leave me a comment if you have one to share.

Keep the coffee hot and ready, I’ll be back soon! Love, Mac

The Dunes

“Let my toes teach the shore
how to feel a tranquil life
through the wetness of sands

Let my heart latch the door
of blackness, as all my pain
now blue sky understands”
― Munia Khan

Vain Glories

broken-mirror-4-1317204

Yearned for distinction but forgot who I am
Changed for others and I repressed myself
Masqueraded as someone I knew I was not
Searched for happiness in the wrong place
Had desired to please everyone and failed

Becoming fractured, my mirror shattered
Shards that no longer will go back together
Reflections in a million pieces looked at me
Helpless I gathered them hoping for solace
Blood ran from hands and yet I felt nothing

There I stood torn and bloodied by choices
No longer could I see the person I’d become
The weight of this all rested on my shoulder
So removing my mask I felt freedom at last
It was then I knew the mirror was my prison
