Monday in Paris #3

The Louvre

the lights of Paris have embraced my mind


inspired my thoughts ~

reigniting dreams


a childhood…… long passed……

I miss the sidelines of yesteryear ~

when time and space existed in unison ~

as each moment unfolded


our dreams embraced.




the passage of time and distance have altered these lines.


You have taken flight

~ chasing angels ~

whose beacons flash the promises of dreams.




I stand here

~ quietly ~

as my patience longingly awaits

~ words ~

to scroll……. across……. a……. screen…….

i can still wish…


three years without you has been an adventure ~

a never-ending roller coaster of life ~ ~

where the valleys have out numbered the peaks.

i still miss you everyday


hear your voice and laughter


wish you would return,


i know you cannot make the journey


still… a girl can wish upon stars and shiny pennies… can she not?


maybe one day,

you will drop by and pay us a little visit ~

hang out like we used to….

we can take in a movie


eat all of our favorite naughty foods


go cruising in Starla and camping in the Vee.

i know the boys would be all for it


Sydnee Pee would certainly not object,

though you may have to fight for a spot on her couch.


you heard me correctly – ‘her’ couch.


a girl can still wish


i will keep on wishing


i will – we will – continue loving you.

i can assure you of this ~




the three boys thinking…..thinking…..

Happy 20th Pnut!


I am in shock


in awe


in a state of disbelief


I am amazed


20 years

could fly by

on a breeze



South Rim of the Grand Canyon!!


Actually Jordan is jumping!!!  Not certain if there is a breeze but, yes he is really jumping and this photo, believe it or not, was neither tweaked, photo shopped or anything of the like!  (Honestly, I asked.)  It seemed Jordan kept jumping like a jack-in-the-box and Peyton took rapid shots with his i-phone and this is the ‘highest point’ picture!

digging through old boxes

discovering priceless treasures aplenty

resurrecting a distant past

I am alive again

of dreams

which will never fade…ever…

The Nutcracker Act II – The Finale

The Finale

soaring crescendos

all the dancers on the stage

Clara bids farewell


me – Act I – center stage – before the tree starts to grow

The photo above was taken from a special souvenir photo book which was created for the 1981 Nutcracker Season.  After spending my Sunday afternoon digging through boxes, I found this gem amongst many, many other treasures.  This photo was taken in 1979.

I hope you have enjoyed my series of pieces inspired by The Nutcracker Ballet.  As a child, the holidays were The Nutcracker. As an adult, they are very special memories – ones which I will never, ever forget.  Just ask my boys….they hear the same stories year after year, after year, after year…..and it looks like y’all will be suffering the same fate!
