Now the first of December…

…..was covered with snow. 😉

DSCN1996

This wonderful, wintery song has been playing in my head for the past few days.

It was a big hit in the 70s and IMO, has never lost its appeal.

I still ♥ it!  

Any snow where you are?

We have just a dusting, here in Interior BC.

Click to listen to: JAMES TAYLOR SINGING, SWEET BABY JAMES

“Sweet Baby James”

There is a young cowboy, he lives on the range. His horse and his cattle are his only companions.
He works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyons, waiting for summer, his pastures to change.
And as the moon rises he sits by his fire, thinking about women and glasses of beer.
And closing his eyes as the doggies retire, he sings out a song which is soft but it’s clear
as if maybe someone could hear…

Goodnight you moon light ladies, rock-a-bye sweet baby James.
Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose, won’t you let me go down in my dreams?
And rock-a-bye sweet baby James.

Now the first of December was covered with snow
and so was the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston.
Though the Berkshires seemed dreamlike on account of that frosting,
with ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go.
There’s a song that they sing when they take to the highway,
a song that they sing when they take to the sea,
a song that they sing of their home in the sky, maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep,
but singing works just fine for me.

So, goodnight you moon light ladies, rock-a-bye sweet baby James.
Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose, won’t you let me go down in my dreams?
And rock-a-bye sweet baby James.

Have a safe and wonderful week! 🙂

Caturday Art with a little touch…

I think the words on the first photo in this post are SO true.

Music has the power to evoke so many emotions, thoughts and memories.

Music IS magic! 😉

 

What kind of music touches and inspires you most? Any particular song or CD? 

Have a wonderful, inspiring weekend. 🙂

10 Under $20: Holiday Gift Suggestion List 2015 :-)

A holiday poem AND my 2015 gift suggestion list! 🙂

How the time is flying…

Happy Shopping and Holidays 🙂

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

The
first of
December
brought thoughts
of Christmas magic.
The Day, so soon to arrive.
Our expectations ran high.
Through snow days and blizzards.
Making a list and checking it twice.
Santa’s letter printed and ready to mail.
Christmas baking: heady, wonderful aromas.
Pageants at school, with costumes of many colors.
The tall lush evergreen, centerpiece of the season.
We decorated so carefully; each bough lovingly adorned.
With some old, some new, every one used and none forgotten.
The long days of dark December. Finally, homework complete.
Sitting in the darkened living room; time alone to drift away.
Marvelling at the masterpiece of lights and shining ornaments.
Gazing far beyond to the bliss to follow. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
Christmas eve: midnight mass and carolling.Treats aplenty!
Then the long awaited, special treasures.
The secrets of shining boxes and ribbons.
Finally revealed and always worth the wait.
Off to sleep…

Words of Wisdom: Ready for an Adventure? ;-)

october sunset 1

New people, new lands, new ways and new experiences open the possibility of expanding our spirits and flushing out the stagnant particles in our blood.”

                    

What do you think?

Does a change of scene and pace always result in a renewed and/or awakened spirit?

I think it definitely can help.

And I’m SOOOO ready/long-overdue for a new adventure!! 😉
