Going Out On a Limb

heartI’ve had a few limbs break off behind me. I’m still pumping my wings like mad to keep from hitting the ground, though every now and again, an updraft helps lift me up.

Sometimes it’s an unexpected, nice comment or even a review of one of my books. Sometimes it’s a hug, or seeing something beautiful out in nature or the world. Sometimes it’s a piece of music that seems to pierce in a wonderful way to my inner soul. Sometimes it’s a cup of tea and a quiet night in, with the wind howling around the house while I’m snug inside.

What are your little updrafts, when you’re pumping your wings to stay afloat? 🙂

    • You’re very welcome. And I think taking photos is a great idea – not least because when the weather changes, a photo makes it still possible to see/think about the beauty already captured, perhaps in another season. ❤

    • That is beautiful, Cindy!! I love sunrises and sunsets, too…and of course those family and friend connections. ❤ And I'm looking forward to the grandchild hug in a year or so. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. 🙂


  1. An unexpected call from a long distance friend, a thank you from a patient, those evenings when the sky has swirls of purple and pink, and saying something funny that makes my grown daughter laugh.
