Happy Mother’s Day 2018

2018-Mother'sDay Flowers
A gift from my children!

Greetings Friends and Family!

Lady G is happily relaxing on this lovely Mother’s Day!

My children surprised me with flowers, candy and brunch!

I also got a fitbit to help me get in shape!

Smile!

No doubt, I am so blessed.

BUT…

I can’t help missing my own mother.

There are so many of us who know that destination all too well.

Alas…it is a place in which we cannot dwell…

Life demands that we move forward and continue to grow; being fully present for our own children and for those whom we love and who love us.

Right HERE…

Right NOW!

Anyway, I pray that you all are doing well and that you are celebrating the mothers in your life… or that you are celebrating your own motherhood!

I miss you guys!

Love and light to you all!

Have a magnificent day and week 🙂

Please drop by and say hello!

2018 Mother's Day Brunch
Brunch prepared by Lady J and Rod 😘

That plate was clean about 5 minutes after this shot was taken…hence the fitbit! LOL!!!

 

We Wear It Well

At last…the final entry in my Valentine’s poetry remix series…
“We Wear It Well”
Written by a brilliant poet who gives us all things magical and celestial. She is Kim, InfiniteZip, and like Chevvy and Marie, she is another one of my sisters.

Recitation by LadyG


Happy Valentine’s Day! 💞

Peace, Love and Patchouli

Life savored,
samples of bliss on pretty dishes
elements of the universe served
one of each for you and me.
We gather in our tribes
celebrating the beautiful days
the crumbs of happiness caught on lips
smiling with full mouths
of joy.
These dreams we carry with us
packed up and set within invisible cases
slung over the shoulder and peered at
while waiting for the light to change,
green we move forward
creeping and taking time to just inhale
the feelings of our being.
Flowers in a vase and champagne taste on tongue
a fine chocolate and a held hand,
the finer shades of bliss
we swim in the depths
below a setting sun,
blowing our seeds of laughter and joy
on the wind carried
into tomorrow.

Having an amazing day. I accepted the job offer for which I blissfully applied, and for a moment, savoring in the joy of…

Sugar Fascination

In the spirit of St. Valentine’s Day, I have decided to select and recite some romantic pieces from a few of my favorite poets on WordPress.

Today, I give you:

Sugar Fascination…
A piece written by a charming and brilliant poet, Braedenmichaels. He’s one bad dude with paper and pen! YAAASSS!

Recitation by Lady G.

Storm of Ink

I’ve undressed your kindness

and taste the sweet tea

I’ve undressed your words

and swallow your charm

I’ve undressed your candor

and step into your confidence

I’ve undressed your intellect

and fell in love with your wit

I’ve undressed your beliefs

and sleep with your poetry

I’ve undressed your receptiveness

and dance with your fire

I’ve undressed your sharpness

and licked your bitterness

I’ve undressed your magnetism

and latch on to your spell

I’ve undressed your enchanted eyes

and grip your mysterious soul

I’ve undressed your broken star

and see a magnificent galaxy

Responsibility

justice-2722004_1920

As I mentioned in this blog’s birthday post, I’ve been in introspection mode.

Hence, my inactivity on WP.

As a matter of fact, I’ve been involved in some form of deep study, meditation, prayer and contemplation ever since this blog’s inception.

Trust me, there has always been something deeper lurking beneath my tomfoolery!

And I mean ALL. OF. IT! 

LOL!!!

Anyway…

I’ve spent a great deal of time reading works that span generations, distance and culture. In essence, I wanted to cull and synthesize enlightened concepts from a very broad perspective.

And you know what?

There were several common truths that absolutely permeated seemingly divergent schools of thought.

Ah…but there was one truth, other than love, that continued to leap all the way up into my frontal cortex!

And it was RESPONSIBILITY!

Anticlimactic?

I get it, but follow me now…

What I have learned is that each one of us is personally responsible for our own lives.

PERIOD.

Don’t get me wrong, I understand the temptation to dwell on all of the ways in which others have mistreated or abused us…I’ve had my share of both.

But in the end…

It is our responsibility to do whatever we need to do to take our lives into the direction of our choosing.

And to that end, I have been having some great discussions with my closest friends and family about how that might look in our own lives–regardless to the actions or inactions of mother, father, sister, brother, son, daughter, husband, wife, uncle, aunt, cousin, neice, nephew….society and so on.

I think one of my mama’s closest friends said it best…

“Gwin, don’t trust nobody with YOUR life!”

Though she said those words to me many years ago, they now ring with a resonant tone.

And so…

I’d like to share a video with you that was sent to me by one of my best friends, Sandra.  She and I had been talking about this topic for a long time, so she was knocked off her feet when she stumbled upon this:

 

Watch the video before it gets pulled!  LOL!

Here’s the link just in case!

Either way…

Let’s discuss.

Love and light to you all!

Love is like the Sea

LOVE IS LIKE THE SEA

Love is like the sea
There are hidden depths
You never know how deep it is
If you only stick your toe in
Just think how much more
We have yet to discover –
Let’s jump in!

Romantic love can be
A source of pleasure and of pain
You have to let your spirit reign
With majesty yet humbly
In order to gain
The greatest gift humans can share –
Come on, let’s swim away!

And now we’re floating, like a boat
And now we’re diving – water in my throat
But that’s just how it is and will always be
Sometimes floating like a dream
Other times we want to choke
Unless we go for broke
And stroke this crazy emotion – we’ll be left standing on the shore!

Lady G Remix: Love is in the air

 

In the spirit of St. Valentine’s Day, I have decided to select and recite some romantic pieces from a few of my favorite poets on WordPress.

Today, I give you:

Love is in the air…
A piece written by my beautiful and talented South African sister, Chevvy.

The winter too long

Branches too bare

Shadows too solemn

The air too bleak

And then you hovered

A promising blush

Soft and beguiling

Melting the snow

You warmed my heart

Quickened my pulse

Exhaled my breath

Clouded my judgement

I have fallen for you!

Next Year

Though my body has betrayed me…

I’ll proceed with next year’s plans.

Springtime in Paris!

Summer on Puget Sound!

Fall in Maine!

And Winter?

Yes…Winter!

A place where I’ll see them all!

You know…

The ones who left before me.

And after that…

I rest.

 

 

For those of us who are dealing with end of life issues.

If LadyG wanted to brag, she would say something like:

“EVERYBODY LOOK!  MY GOD SON, ZO, IS OPENING FOR ALLEN STONE!”

LOL!

Since I am NOT a bragger, I shall resist the temptation…

But I will say this, if you are anywhere near my hometown of Augusta, GA tonight, you need to run down to the Imperial Theatre by 7pm to check them both out!

You will NOT be disappointed!
