Simple Inspirations

Sometimes I find myself overly absorbed in the world of so-called social media. In other words, I get trapped in the tentacles known as Facebook.

It can seem to be a “waste” of time, but, on the evenings when it I’m in need of a belly full of laughter, I can usually find it. Sometimes, it’s the opposite need that’s fulfilled: a yearning to be touched in the soul and just cry.

Social media is no substitute for face-to-face interaction, but, in it’s own way, it enables us to filter what enters our minds and hearts on the days we need that control.

Blogging was the beginning of the foray of making friends online, whom one will most likely, never actually meet. Facebook is an abbreviated, instant interaction along the same lines.

This past week, I found another connection that made my day happier and, unexpectedly, the friend’s heart happy, too. And, isn’t that what any friendship really is about?

The inspiration of the week: Cece's Window.

May your heart and soul be inspired this week and always!

Gold & White

Unending cold, unending darkness,
Fill the unending wintertime.
After the storm covers the drabness,
The sudden beauty seizes the eye.
The glorious bones of trees, old and twisted,
Rise mighty and bleach-white.
Sunlight flits through the laciness
Of twigs that crosshatched,
Cast shadows, dense and intriguing.
Flecks of gold, cast about by the sunlight,
Crash joyfully onto the snow.
Fluff and ice that entices us
With promise of more loveliness to come.

Completely Fallin' Over Falls

The almost final of the Untitled Falls I posted a while back:

And, a little, teeny change and, the final painting:

And, the title is simple & to the point! "Stony Waterfall".
