Whispering Wind by dragon-fly-to-me Whispering Wind by dragon-fly-to-me
...it seems this is my 400th upload. How interesting...I wish is was something more spectacularly outstanding. :D
Sucks to be you, y'all. ;p

Same night as this:


"Rocks and Water" Deb Talan :music: [link]

I will be rocks, I will be water.
I will leave this to my daughter:
lift your head up in the wind.
When you feel yourself grow colder
wrap the night around your shoulders
and I will be with you even then
even when I cannot see your face anymore.


If I had one wish for all people, it would be to embrace the fact that we are only here for a moment...we are like a vapor in the expanse of "eternity."
Someone recently said to me, "we each are born with an expiration date, unique and unknown." He spoke the truth and I wonder what the world would look like if we lived that truth.

Knowing that we must love and live and give and care as much as we humanly can, because we are guaranteed nothing but the fact that we will die. So shouldn't we learn and grow and be positive change? Vapors are temporary!!
:shrug:
I guess this all comes from recent stuff and knowing...my date is probably going to be earlier than most people my age in this time. Bah! Anyway...

...may 2013 awaken in each viewer the fortitude to look at the world and see. See how vital we are in this short time we have been given. And then do...play! love! give! work! write! _______ (you fill in the blank). Enjoy...:heart:

I hope you have a stellar weekend with your lovely lady and your 'kids.' It is supposed to be warm! How odd, eh? :shrug:

Almost there now! I'm leaving a little early today, I get to go pick my cow up from the butcher, which means we will have fresh steaks again! :boogie: Ah well you know us guys, we get excited about the little things ;) It is 60 degrees down here right now! The only snow left is the dirty gray kind piled up in the parking lots.

...and how did it go? Yummy steaks, a little frothy brew...perhaps some sports on the telly. Was it wonderful??? :D
It is cold now. But I'm toasty warm inside grilling up some...you guessed it!! Steaks. ;)

It was a good stay at home weekend, I did cook up a good steak on the grill. I watched some of the playoff games, but have been disappointed single-handedly by Baltimore twice now. That was a real nail biter in Denver though.

Well I'm sorry your team has disappointed. I'm from Michigan. We have the Lions. 'nuff said.
i love football, which is concentrated heavily in the high school area, then college and lastly and least, pro. :)
I barely stayed home. maybe next weekend. :shrug:

I can't complain too much, we did pretty good to even make the playoffs considering we completely rebuilt the team from scratch at the start of the year, I think we got pretty "Luck"y on that one. I would have loved to see a Colts vs Peyton Manning playoff game though, that would have been pretty cool. I can't get behind the Pats or the Ravens for the Superbowl though, looks like I'm going to have to root for Atlanta I guess?

I don't like Tom Brady. Too many man-crushes. It sickens me. (lol...teasing. I just don't like him because everyone blabbers on and on :blahblah: about him. it is nauseating.)
There is a possibility I won't watch. A good possibility. :D

I didn't realize that the stuff in scraps was considered as deviations and I deleted two a couple days ago...now I am at 399. LOL. ooopssy. oh well.
Something else is going to be 400. A lit piece. An interesting lit piece. :nod:

Thank you for that compliment. I suppose that makes sense...I see my photography and writing as an extension of me. I have soul. So should they. That is a grand compliment and I thank you for it. :hug:

You don't know. I might kick off and you'd get my heart. So there. Also, like my Mamaw used to tell the preacher, I want to go to Heaven, but if you're gettin' up a busoad right now I'll stay on this bench. I say this only to contradict myself. I have this big, fun, deeply missed group of people waiting for me on the other side. Lost loves, old friends, family. People I've never met who love me just the same because I love them. One day we gonna have one humongus party but happy as I'll be to see them, I ain't looking to go now...though it could happen before I finish this long comment. Don't sell yourself short love. You never know what life has in store. You might outlive us all.
