Songs to the Universe

Posted on November 6, 2017 at 9:30am 51 Comments

I speak our secret language to the universe

the stars are silent, stalwart

steady in their non response

I murmur your name to the changing trees

and hear your "hush" in their reply 

nothing has changed,  everything is different

Your stories come to me with the moon

in waves and songs of the sea…

Hi. I wanted to let you know that I linked your post, "Call If Lonely", to my post on Facebook. Reading yours inspired me to be grateful for the Puff in my life.

Rita, call me at 617-875-9400.  I'm not  a magician, but I do know how to repair credit and get mortgages for people who don't think they can get financed.  That's actually what I do for a living.  Can't promise anything, but I am sometimes able to pull the cat out of the hat.

Merry Christmas to you, my friend in Amish country -- thanks so much for being you, have enjoyed the past year here  : )

Thanks, Rita. I figured it was time to jump in with both feet. I've been lurking for quite a while now. Just went thru the members page and was excited to see so many familiar faces here.

truck stop quote (note the date at the bottom):

IF OS CLOSES DOWN (GASP) a) Will we still have the truckstop?
2) will the gnome then have a Facebook page?
3) will you pick me up in board shorts and sandals on the bike?
4) does that mean we will have to go back to (GASP) real life?
