Musings on Monday

in #monochromemonday2 years ago

Colliding thoughts embrace my heart
Caressing touches upon my soul
Holding fast, the memory
Of
Once upon a time
Allowing the image of dreams to come
Then drifting away before I can see
Today is no different than any other day
Only the pieces of the game have changed

The skies are grey, the weather speaks in tones of rain and cold, holding my sunshine hostage. Let's just muse our day away, yes? Feeling a little black and white-ish. Today must be #MonochromeMonday with @Old-Guy-Photos! Let's put up a monochrome or three and call it a day.

Oh winter. You move closer to me, every single day. Look away! For I am not ready to give you a place to stay. I wonder what it will take to keep you far away? - Driving through the backroads of Pennsylvania the other day.


I make it easier for people to leave by making them hate me a little
― Cecelia Ahern, The Book of Tomorrow

When what should I see
But one that was not my own
Dancing in the streets of life
Delight in the moment
Make it yours to keep.

Spring one day, Fall the next. Rain. Maybe snow. Maybe not.

Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know everything happens for a reason. ~Albert Schweitzer

Caught in this feeling, igniting
Far and away
A pendulum swings
Back to you
Again

Flowers. There must always be flowers to color my world.

As time goes on
I realize
Just what you mean
To me
And now
Now that you're near
Promise your love
That I've waited to share
And dreams
Of our moments together
Color my world with hope of loving you

I will savor the fragrance of the coming time, the richness of its hue, only to pass it on to the ensuing caretaker and the next, and the next - until we are back where we began. Enjoy and cherish what you have, the grass is not always greener.

The gift of love.
The gift of peace.
The gift of happiness.
May all these be yours at Christmas.

May the joy continue to radiate in your lives,
long after the season is gone, gone, gone.
Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

Love to all, Denise

I dedicate this post to all of you. You bring joy to my soul and spread your love across the world. For this, I thank you. And just like that, these musings are done...and just so you know, although we are throwing glitter around the globe, I can guarantee you that there is still a little left to take us through Christmas. Have a most fabulous day!

Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Because of you, I come back to post again and again, I am encouraged by you, for the time you take to visit, comment or even upvote. For all of these reasons, I am eternally grateful. Don't ever forget what a wonderful world we live in, people.Some days, it is not as easy to see, how wonderful it really is. Kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.

We Are The World

There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh, and it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can't go on
Pretending day-by-day
That someone, somewhere soon make a change
We're all a part of God's great big family
And the truth, you know, love is all we need
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives

It's true we'll make a better day, just you and me
Oh, send them your heart
So they know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
And so we all must lend a helping hand

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let's start giving
Oh, there's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day, just you and me

When you're down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe there's no way we can fall
Well, well, well, well let us realize
Oh, that a change can only come
When we stand together as one, yeah, yeah, yeah

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day, just you and me

Oh nothing makes me more happy than seeing you post in the tag! You always put a big smile on the old guy's face!

Omg what a totally silly quote. No one could ever hate you even a little. Ha one look at that smiling face and they would be right under the swirl once again lol!

I still say that top one looks a bit more sepia than a mono, but we can always argue that one later :D

Well, I have been a little remiss in the #monochromemonday tag, haven't I?

I guess hate was the poets' words, not mine. If you step back from someone, it is hoped that you won't miss them that much, or something like that. A little silly, but, that has been my day.

Oh, you and everyone else has told me that it was a sepia. LOL Yes. Yes. I concur, but, it's too late! So, in fact, the only thing I gave you was the tag. Oi!

Have a great week ahead!

Well see how easy sepia is? You are a natural with it. No need to be a stranger on Saturdays then ;) Come on, you know you want to.

Oh, well, you will have to fight it out with #MarketFriday then. ;)

Good morning ☀️ and another sweet post wishing you a great day here its a good morning for ice skating ⛸ I would have worn my skates this morning but for one minor detail I don’t own any lol

Ohhh~!! Gosh, I hope you didn't go into the city then! I know it is in the thirties here this morning, but, will be in the 50s later today.

Crazy stuff, this weather!

I hope you find your skates. Looks like a wonderful winter we are headed for. Yikes.

Yah I did go in today in the office now, its warmed up to 30 Now and we have a high of 37 I think, but I wanted to be in for a meeting with my boss this afternoon, Thursday we have a high of 26 I think so I may telecommute that day

It was scary this morning. Waiting for the train someone asked me how many more commutes i had to go and i looked it up and it was 30 Somehting, then I realized that wasn’t taking into account i plan to telecommute two days a week, which brings it down to 24and some weeks I may well telecommute 3 days which brings it down even more thats both scary and exciting

No kidding!!! It is a little scary for someone like you. I cannot imagine, for the moment anyway, you not having to multitask to the max for your day. And what will you do for those 5 hours in the morning while the rest of the world sleeps??

I think that telecommuting (which you should have started two years ago!) will take some of the edge off of leaving. You will already be in the home mode, so I recommend that you do it as often as allowed. The transition will be easier, in my opinion.

It will be harder for someone like you, but, easing into it this way will really help. and just thinking about what you will be able to do after this is fun. :)

But for the most part I am excited, or i keep telling myself i am LOL, I did start the telecommuting two years ago but only once a month, I could telecommute three days a week but struggling to do that but i think I will try to as much as possible for the new year, but time will tell

But that said next week I will be telecommuting for three days :)

As for the free time i wil have especially in the morning, if i can ge tout during te day taking photos that will be a good time for editing them :)

And yes easing into it is what I have to do and change my mindset, but i will do that

Thanks again :)

You aren't ready yet, but, soon, you will be there! :)

Ohh yeah for sure I will get there 🙂👍🙂

making week beautiful again ! that was so nice to enjoy :)

Thank you! It is a wonderful week before Christmas! :)

Hi! Things are going well. I've been writing and reading tons, and the kids are doing great at kindergarten (except the getting to school part, but who's good at mornings?) I'm not online as much as I was, but I'm still here. ;) Thanks for shining your light!

Hahah! You are too cute @katrina-ariel!!! You are such a hoot and hollar, girlfriend! Who's good at mornings!?? LOL
