Let me ask you a question…

Do you have anything special you do on Monday morning to get going for the work week?

Momentary, fleeting…transient.

HorseAddict

This week’s Word Press Photo Challenge is the word Transient. Transient; a momentary , fleeting thing.  The  photos that immediately came to mind are the  ones of a horse in mid stride. That airborne moment.

L12

In dressage that is the moment we aim to achieve more of. More airtime. More floating. More cadence.

It is a feeling of freedom. It is transient, fleeting and gone in an instant but it is the feeling of flying.  How lucky for a human to be able to feel that even if only for a moment.

Honey Cookies!

Who's My Favorite Today?

My 15 year old daughter Brooke has taken up cooking!  Yay!!!  This is her latest creation – Honey Cookies.  They are amazing!  She can’t take credit for the recipe – she found it on the internet – but amazing nonetheless.

This “cooking thing” (for a lack of better terms) is something that has evolved over the last year or so.  When I walk by and she is watching something on her phone, 9 times out of 10 she is watching cooking.  Someone cooking a cake, bread, pasta, etc…  She even asked for a food processor for Christmas.  She truly loses time while engrossed in the world of cooking.

What’s interesting is that she has let it slip that this is her “bliss.”  I say that because I don’t think even she consciously thought that at first.  But I have noticed her saying several times lately, “I am really stressed about…

Are you fulfilled?

Essential Living with Dakota

Are you fulfilled? When you wake up in the morning, do you breathe a breath of fresh air, or do you dread rolling out of bed for the things that are waiting for you?

There’s so much we miss out on because we’re consumed with things that don’t fulfill us. As humans, we have a tendency to build walls for ourselves and we don’t even realize we do it. “I can’t do that, what would my family think?” “I can’t apply for that job, I’m no where near qualified.” “Who am I to think I deserve to make an income that provides me with all things I need and more?” “I can’t run my own business, I don’t know enough.”

Our thoughts dictate so much of what we allow ourselves to do. When we view the glass as half empty, we aren’t fulfilled. We’re negative. Nothing is quite right. We…

MEET J B REYNOLDS

lucinda E Clarke

My guest this week proves another theory of mine – all great writers have had a myriad of different jobs – it’s all to do with the watching, observing, learning of people, places and things. He’s had a fascinating life. And, a little bird told me that his wife is helping him with his marketing – ah I wish …  isn’t that wonderful?

BJ Reynolds

Hi, I’m J.B. Reynolds and I live in rural Northland, New Zealand, where I raise children and chickens. (In case you’re wondering, chickens are easier—they also make less mess). I write humorous short fiction in which tragedy meets comedy and character reigns supreme. My first short story was published while I was a university student in the mid-nineties. Since my graduation and a return to serious writing in 2016, I’ve worked as a teacher, graphic designer, landscaper, ski and snowboard technician, film critic, librarian, apple picker, and…

Do you believe it is important to be organized?  If not, what are the benefits of being disorganized?

“If I Could Save Time In A Bottle”

Daily Prompt – Bottle

After watching the Tony Awards last Sunday (we actually finished watching them today) I guess it is fitting to have a Musical Blog Post!Another good song line would be “Time Keeps On Slipping Into The Future” (Fly Like An Eagle, Steve Miller Band).

I just can’t believe that it is half way through the month of June in the year 2017! I thought it was just yesterday that we were saying Happy New Year. But of course, that couldn’t be true because we are in our new place and only have been for a month…a MONTH, and we haven’t finished unpacking yet.

My husband’s nephew is graduating this week. I remember when we went to see them in the hospital just after he was born. I looked after him for the first year of his life. He is so tall, handsome and smart, but he wasn’t…
