This Moment Lasts

Music & bread go hand in hand.
Lots of music is being played &
created here at our home.
A new love of making bread from
scratch & by hand has started up.
A concert in the making!
The creative hands that a flow music.
I believe my children are enjoying
this groove in our life,
& so am I.

Red Doors

Opening the many red doors that happen when we take risks.
Joining creativity together,
with the fusions of friendships.
This trip away was a sense of quieting, within my heart.
A joy in new discoveries.
& a renewed hope in the next chapters.
The days past poetically with rapid speed,
yet the trip needed to end.
Distance makes the heart grow fonder both near & far..

Welcome home ~ Welcome memories ~ 178 <> 240

:: with my eyes*
I saw a girl having a tea party
through pictures.
*With a 'missing you' look in her eyes.

*Genuine smiles.

*Family on a spontaneous Skype night
that pull out all the stops to chat & entertain.

:: with my ears*
I heard the voices of my family
through the miles.

*New sounds created from the mouth of a baby boy.
*Playing with him each day as we watched him grow.

*The giggles of a little girl chasing her puppy around the home.
*Then in pausing, she hugged gently
& whispered she was beautiful.

:: with my tastes*
*Fresh Atlantic lobsters.
*Experienced sushi made with fish caught fresh within hours.
*Delighted in fresh homemade banana beggars..a few times.

:: I shared insightful moments with friends*
that I have had the honor of knowing for years.
*Deep meaningful moments shared.. all gracious.

*Watched a beautiful moment as she tried on the hand-knit sweater for her, then again with more friends.

*Resting on a moss covered rock with ducks
surrounding the ripples of stillwater lake.

*Listened to locals talking about life, weather & work.
*Watched children with their parents indulge in donuts.
*They were covered and sticky
& were as happy as anyone has ever been.

*Drove the countryside.

*Visited the ocean.

*We walked in busy traffic within a quiet neighborhood.

*I lived for the day.

*Wrote many pages.

*I dreamed time away.

*Stretched distance as far as I could go.

*Breathed in peacefully.

*Softly touched all kinds of malabrigo yarns.

*I've seen many days of snow, of drizzled on down.

*When the sun came out, we could see the bay through the trees.

*Explored the streets of Halifax.

*Videoed random areas that captured my attention.

*Listened to fine tuned advice, from the managers of Starbucks,
a postal worker
& knitters that spin at yarn shops.

*These snippets also captured moments to join in multitudes on Mondays.

Start points*

Solitary day trips**Finding my way

Wings ready & wide open

Still waiting for one last moment to open up.
Still trying to wrap my mind around this.
This time.
This moment.
A gift

& then it all happened.
The doors close behind them
waving goodbye
still misty eyes.

Bye for now
see you later.
Take my hand one more time
it will be awhile.

Love you long time.
