to be gentle and kind.

To others faults quite blind.

Let me

leave my worries and cares behind.

Help me

to shine as Soul

To give loving service we’re I go

When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation—some fact of my life—unacceptable to me, and I can find not serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Notherin, absolutely nothing, happens in God’s world by mistake.  Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober: unless I accept life completely on life’s terms, I cannot be happy.  I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in my and in my attitudes.



SO what does a hermit do all the time?

here is where you can find me

tell me how I can find you

I am a hermit.

 I love people.

 I come out of hibernation in July.

 In the meantime this is what I do all the time……



spoken word art,
online writing,
writing a book or a play…

I have produced four plays,
learning photography,
and fine art painting 


supporting and encouraging others 

I teach art as a volunteer.

My community involvement is global.

Supporting wordsmith artisans, new writers

and teaching english to wordcrafters

and new spoken word art writers.


My life is all about service and art.

My family, my marriage, my cooking,

my laughter and my dreaming are  all art.
I assist people with life changes

through encouragement to re-write their life story.

Thank  you kindly dear hearts, for your likes on my blog.   I have just discovered after five years, I could be thanking you every time you like something.  I write 11 poems everyday so I often am busy editing and doing re-writes on the days I do come out of my den. I am grateful for your support.  

I appreciate you all very much and will stop writing one day.  Then,  I will thank you and accept all the awards.   I am not rude…I just want to stay in recovery after my stroke. When I was a career woman I tried to please everyone by thanking them, being their “fixer”, banker, and Earth Mother.   Now I am busy fixing me….and at 70 that is a full time job.  AND I AM AN ADDICT…I am addicted to books, quilts and shopping, laughing and Soul travel. 

Oh, Morning most glorious…


I await the dawn.

Morning`s first light.

I await the dawn

I have sat vigil this night.

For those who do not know

The Sunlight of the Spirit.

For those who do not know

The glorious sound within.

For those for  whom music

Of the sphere`s  is gone.

For those who do not hear it.

For those who do not hear your Voice

For those who think they have no choice.

I await the dawn…

Morning`s first light.

I await the dawn…

I have sat vigil this night.

Oh, morning you are glorious.  

The Sunlight of the Spirit

fills  Soul.  

The wandering

and wondering cease.  

All is calm.

 All is at peace. 

The battle for another

night is done.

The separation is gone.

Spirit has been made whole. 

The victory has been won.

I await the dawn…

Morning`s first light.

I await the dawn…

I have sat vigil this night.

‎~♥~ A Celtic Blessing of Light ~♥~

“May the blessing of light be on you, light without and light within. 

May the blessed sunlight shine upon you and warm your heart till it glows, 
Like a great peat fire, so that the stranger may come 
and warm himself at it, as well as the friend. 

And may the light shine out of the eyes of you, 
like a candle set in the windows of a house, 
Bidding the wanderer to come in out of the storm. 

And may the blessing of the rain be on you – the soft sweet rain. 
May it fall upon your spirit so that all the little flowers may spring up, 
And shed their sweetness on the air. 

And may the blessing of the great rains be on you, 
that they beat upon your spirit and wash it fair and clean, 
and leave there many a shining pool, and sometimes a star. 

And may the blessing of the earth be on you – the great round earth
May you ever have a kindly greeting for people you pass 
as you are going along the roads. 

And now may the Lord bless you, and bless you kindly.”
