New Beginnings

“Spring is the beginning of the season cycle, a time of birth and new beginnings. It is also the energy of the element Wood.

This is the energy that brings forth new growth, that pushes the new grass through the snow, the new branches out from old wood, produces new leaves. It does this so nature can take in the nourishment it needs to flourish.”  — 5 Elements of Nature

My Lost Property

DSC_0036 (2)

Reflective by Mac©

I’m feeling something’s gone in me, but don’t know what it could be
And yet my heart is still all in tact, don’t know then what it is I lack
Often it seems to be very hard to cope, maybe I have lost all my hope
But my soul is surely in its place, and a smile is still across this face
Found my mind and it seems hazy and yes it’s even a wee bit crazy
Maybe I’ll not find my way, I could give up, look again another day

But on and on I’ll search some more, coming to this peaceful shore
Up to the water’s edge and take a look, realized that I have mistook
Many things my reflection shows to me, finding who I’m ment to be
In the search to find what’d been removed, I realized I’ve improved
So if you find my lost property, will you please let it go and set it free

Round And Round

I sit on the ride and around I turn
Passing images go past me blured
Up and down or round and round
Never knowing where I am bound
Life goes by, the music keeps going
Am I the driver or with it flowing?
Never slows down, never lets up
I ask to get off, may have to jump
Putting on a smile so do all the rest
Ahead’s unknow, hope for the best
What’s a remedy for being unsure?
Life is a ride, letting go is the cure!

Happy Spring

“The sun just touched the morning;
The morning, happy thing,
Supposed that he had come to dwell,
And life would be all spring.”
― Emily Dickinson

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.©
