Colds, Flu and Viruses

my son telephoned this afternoon – I answered hell-o .

He asked, how are you feeling? Not as well as I’d like to be, I said.

Additional questions followed, are you still seeing the Natural Medicine doctor, have you tried traditional western medicine? I replied, yes I have. It’s a virus, the immune system is low.

It’s the season for colds, flu and viruses.

I’ve had a virus for five days just before Christmas holidays – missing a ballet, relaxing time with some friends and family, missing work. It’s inconvenient and exhausting. I am very contentious about what I eat, the sounds of another’s cough, sniffly nose, or the mention of the words feeling bad. I run the other way. Unfortunately, not always fast enough.

What to do? Rest. Watch a move. Drink lemon ginger tea. Take elderberry, echinacea, drink lots of water and chicken soup just tastes better when I’m down.

It’s time for the afternoon nap, the droopy eyes are happening and I know some much needed liquid is needed.

Please think twice before going out in public while sick, there are many of us who want to stay well and give their heartfelt thanks to those who do heed this simple request.

May 2019 be a healthier year for you and yours.

Quote shared: Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars.to change the world. — Harriett Tubman


I’m full of dreams, passions, compassion and art. Self-love, I’m only beginning to understand how necessary it is to fully love self in order to bring those dreams to fruition. As Harriett Tubman so beautifully states, Every dream begins with a dreamer.

All Dreams are Possible. One must just begin!

Where’s the wind?

Juliet's Window II

it’ s October, and I’m wearing sandals and short sleeves…

Where’s the wind…

the door’s wide open and there’s no breeze

Where’s the wind….

the trees are asking and so are the leaves…

Where’s the wind…

she asks to lull me to sleep on a warm October’s eve

Silencio…listen…

… crickets and the rumbling of the dishwasher  must do

Dear Sophie

Don’t worry about …

the hand me downs worn until too tight

or the education they never believed you deserved

Don’t worry about …

the acknowledgement of any of your achievements you never received

or the way you were told to stay in your room until a month had passed

you’re free now — you’re the only one holding yourself back

You are free now …

to do as you please

to live your dream

to fly above the clouds

to shine your light so bright

to believe in the person you are and always were meant to be

trust God who knows all and remember to quit holding on so tightly.
