I say Beauty Full! all the time so this is my contribution to Poetry Thursday!Hope you are having a Beauty Full day!

Yesterday was one of those kind of Dream days! It was sublime! So filled with beauty! Deer in the back yard, blue jay flying(I seeeeeeeee blue jays every day), a 3 day old sweet baby boy(I happened to know the father, Damon graduated high school with him!) going home from the hospital, my sweet Dr. Hess, another sweet baby's pics I got in the mail, staring up to the dim lights on the ceiling as I got my EKG(everything's fine, just high blood pressure, UG!)Thanking God I was just here on a visit thinking they should have some soft music in there! coming home, seeeeeing my family, watching "So You Think You Can Dance" Jessica and Jaymz dancing beautifully to "Let Go" by Frou Frou, switching the channel to seeeeeeeeeeeeeee an amazing little eleven year old girl, Bianca Ryan belting out the song, "And I tell you I'm not going" She gave me many chills!!!! She should win it!!! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder though soooo you may have a different opinion on who is to win! and I saw many beauty full sights and ending up the day, in the weeeeee hours thanks to a commenter on my Blog, Haider(thank YOU!), I went to Sara Shamma's web site. She is full of beauty as you can seeeeeeee for yourself! ps. I think all my commenters are beauty full!!!! Yes!!!! lol

"V I S I O N S" Poetry Thursday

One afternoon

I knew I was going to die

I was not ready

I questioned in my mind,

so soon?????

and then I looked

and he was there sitting

I thought, "It must be God!"

The Ancient One

No-one has seen his face soooooo

Who was he?



He wore a brilliant white feathered headdress

lots of beautiful white feathers adorned him

Him thinking

Me thinking


sublime thoughts danced in my heart

and brought me back to LIFE!

healed, still ALIVE!

Was it all a dream or

Was it Real?

I was sooo GLAD to be Alive

to breathe

Was He a Vision?


Was I his Vision?

I think of him often

I don't miss him

Have You seen him?


This is the first time I have ever tried painting this occurence or talked about it to anyone for fear I would be taken away!

was it a visiting angel or a deadly visitor



Phew! What a wonderful 2 1/2 hours I had last night! Thanks! Natalie! She is my son Damon's girlfriend and she works for the radio station that sponsored this! The last concert I went to at Westchester Village was Hot Apple Pie! lol I am a country girl! I was raised on a farm and my dad played the fiddle, banjo, ukulele, drums but what I LOVE is the fiddle! Boy, oh boy, could this youngun' play his fiddle!!! I thought he was gonna burn it up!!! LOL Emerson Drive really ROCKED last night!!!Gina and I sat right by the speakers though but it was up front but our ears are still ringggGGGgggGGGGinggGGGGG!!! That's not good! I LOVE all kinds of music!!! Right now I'm listening to Rihanna's "A Girl Like Me" OOOOOOooooOOOO Thank God for MUSIC and the sweet people that bring it!!!!

Who's quote is that??!!! I forget! Instead of going to bed the other night I decided to paint! here's some other sweet sayings****If you would never cease to pray, never cease to long for it. The continuance of your longing is the continuance of your prayer........St. Augustine*****The kindest and the happiest pair...Will find occasion to forbear; And something, every day they live, To pity, and perhaps forgive.......William Cowper******If you find yourself growing angry at someone, pray for him-anger cannot live an an atmosphere of prayer*********and here is another one! It is not how troubled the sea is that determines the course of your life; it is who the Pilot is..........The Lord will either calm your storm or allow it to rage while HE calms you ...........If God is for us, who can be against us??????? Romans 8:31 ****Hope YOU are having a sweet day! xoxoxooxoxoox

Get Back In The Light

This collage is going to eBay too Sunday sometime, afternoon or evening!
I've got to fight to get back in the Light! I HATE, DETEST DEPRESSION! I have it thick in my family! soooooooooo I have a constant battle, most days I think we are inbetween, happiness and sadness! Everyone! Sometimes I think I watch too much CNN! but.............. those terrorists are out there! Now, they have arrested how many in Canada, how many more are there ready to terrorize!!! All the killings and kidnappings and perverts! UG! I've got to get back in the light soooo I can keep praying for goodness and peace!!!! Like a good thing I heard about this week-end is The Heart Gallery where they are taking pictures of foster children and putting their pictures up in a gallery..........mostly older children waiting for someone to seeeeeeeeeeeeeee their picture and fall in love with them! and to adopt them! Sweet! there is sweetness out there!!! Sweet Dreams! xoxooox

how is everybody today!!!!????? Yowwwwwwwzzzzzzzaaaa!!! I still can not believe it is JUNE 1st!!!
I've got to get busy planting my Cosmos or is it too late??? I don't think so, they have June, July, August, September to grow!!!
GUESSSSSSS what???? Today is the DAY i MET my PRINCE!!! That's what he looked like to me that day and our wedding day! June 1st, 33 years ago, it was a Friday night, my girlfriend and I decided to go to this Club called "The Top of the Tree" I've told the story before on here when I posted a pic of my crown( hair braided and pinned up) I used to wear back in the day! I was wearing a gypsy scarf that night and he asked me why I was wearing it sooooooooo I went into the bathroom after we had finished our dance, took the scarf off and the electric went off!!!! LOL Woooooo HoOOOOoO!!!!
6 months later I was Mrs. Jerry Oliverio!!!!
The next year, 1974, June 1st, they released me from the hospital from having a miscarriage. May 30, 1974, I lost my first dear sweet child, who I always thought was a girl but the Dr. said it was too soon to tell, but I was 3 months! What else didn't he tell me? That's why every May 30th and in November when he or she should have been born I get melancholy! Angels, Angels, Angels everywhere!!!
This May 30, I was melancholy and played Nicolette Larson's 1980 cassette, "Radioland" This sweet artist, what a songbird!!! died December, 1997 from complications of a cerebral edema! She was only 45 years old! One of the songs she sings on this cassette is "Gone Too Long" Yes, both have been gone too long but I think of them as angels, ANGELS UP THERE!!! Have you heard any of her songs? One of her more famous songs was Neil Young's "Lotta Love" and her last album was a baby's album, "Sleep Baby Sleep"
A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness; but still will keep A bower quiet for us, and a sleep Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing... An endless fountain of immortal drink, Pouring unto us from the heaven's brink.
John Keats
