Friends Never Say Goodbye

My soul-sister, Flanagan, moved from Rutledge, TN, to Nashville, TN, on March 21, 2014, and I don't have the words to even begin describing the void that is left in my world.  I know, I know, she's as close as my next heart-beat---but I also know that rather than 45 mins. away, she is now 4-1/2 hours away.  Not quite as conducive to meeting and running for coffee and groceries together.  I am so very grateful to have had her 'next door' for the last seven years...I have never had such a bond form before, and she has brought me more joy and 'gifts' than I could ever name or thank her for.  She truly is my 'twin flame' sister of the heart.  So, although I feel as if I'm in a period of grieving and mourning, I know in my heart that, as Elton John says, "Friends Never Say Goodbye".

Welcome April---Voice of Spring

Voice of Spring...
"Come, I come! ye have called me long,
I come o'er the mountain with light and song:
Ye may trace my step o'er the wakening earth,
By the winds which tell of the violet's birth,
By the primrose-stars in the shadowy grass,
By the green leaves, opening as I pass."~ Felicia D. Hemans

I have been away from my blog for ages; I've missed my 'infrequent' posting.  I have been going through a 'healing and transformative' phase, and find some of my years-long passions are now pushing their way to the back of the bus.  Time for delving into who this woman is now, and what does she think about the world around her---and inside of her.  Oh, my passion for my furbabies and Mother Earth are as strong as ever, maybe even more so.  I find I just want to immerse myself in  nature.  It has, after all, been a long, hard, cold Winter for so many of us.  A few days of warmer weather, and the sights and sounds of the outside world are luring me away from indoor pursuits.  I'm setting my 'intent' to post a bit more frequently; however, fair warning, my love of fabric and quilting seems to have taken a sabbatical...
