Time Travel

I love the New Year- we all stop to observe that change
the letting go of one and grasping the other
That tick, that sweep, that observance of the smallest moment
We count down the seconds- cheers, glitter, and kisses shower down.
In the next 52 to weeks I resolve to:
a) stress less- chances of this happening- approx 30%
b) Get my studio organized- chances of this happening- 45%
c) Face daily challenges with grace and less caffeine- hmmmm- maybe just more grace
d) Write/ Journal daily- chances of this resolution- desire 100%- outcome 30%
e) Not to seek comfort in food- I don't have much hope for the success of this one maybe just
more awareness- "Hi I'm JoDee- and I have chocolate issues"

Year of the Ox- 4707

Happy New Year

What a wonderful wild ride its been

Thanks to everyone

for supporting the Arts

" Now let us Welcome the New Year

Full of Wonders that have Never Been"

End of Time

Somewhere now
There is something happening
Something hidden
something living
I think of how
your shoulders looked
turning away
from my face
shrugging off the day

Sunday Night Silent Movies
The smell of cucumbers
any breakfast anyone else makes
the homeless guy i used to give my change to
everyday- who was always so sweet- and then disappeared
school buses in the rain

have yourself a Merry little Christmas-

Noel Noel

Well she was a rescue- came with her name attached

was an inconsiderate x-mas gift for someone else

survived neglect including a snakebite

now she is the love of my pet life

and cant you tell just how very much she enjoys dressing up

its cold 32 degrees in Houston today

but i guess there are really no excuses

for dog couture

They'll tuck their heads under their wings poor things

Ah yes - the holidays' - I entered a competition last week at Parahernalia- very cool UK site with an Etsy shop = such fun and unique stuff- alas I did not win- I've also been busy making these cool little birds for Christmas,Kwanzaa, Hanuka, Solstice, festival of light gifts- for everyone on my list- I'm having a heart"felt" holiday - hehehe felt get it - I adapted this pattern from Calamity Kim's on line site- very fun and easy- I'm using felt and beading a hanger- they are like chips so easy to do and I can't stop at one!! and as I work each one has a little personality that emerges under the needle- so sweet-

Things I Love Thursdays= TILT

my dogs face
no depression music
nag champa incense- smells like home!
hot baths on a gloomy day

Found Texas Trash

Even the refuse is friendly down here 'mam

Saw this cheerful albeit rusty "Howdy"

greeting me in a parking lot-

Had to pick it up

It cheered me all day

Evergreen Road

I keep seeing that Whitetail in my headlights
The one that wasn't there - then was
Arching over my hood
Like some desperate ballet dancer
First one
Then three more
All at once
Over and around me
Then gone
like ghosts
over the drifts
of the Canyon snow
I had to pull over- my hands shaking
Seeing my breath
measuring the cold moments
