Everyone is a Fairy in this Universe!

Sometimes even we Goddesses have got to let go of things and just be a frilly little sprite :)

The Fairy in your Soul

Your fairy is called Feather Saturnfly
She is a trouble maker.
She lives in high places where the clouds meet the earth.
She is only seen at midday under a quiet, cloudless sky.
She wears pale blue like the sky. She has delicate pale multi-colored wings like a cicada.

Trouble Maker, that's me allll over (grin)

And if you like to spend some wonderful dreamtime looking at the little winged imps, here is a great site for those charming visuals!

Valentine's Shmalentines?

Valentine's Day?

Aren't you supposed to show the people you love that you love them...everyday?

If you need a special calendar day to become a manipulated consumer to show your love, you have more problems than a Hallmark card and an overpriced bouquet of flowers can cure.(and I absolutely adore fresh flowers) is hard to smack at a day meant for showing love.
The more love the better.
The more open showing of it, the less time we have to throw some serious hate around.

But I still think it is a bonehead holiday meant for consumer spenditure. For as much joy as it can create, it can also create some seriously sad feelings.

Noting, of course, that consumer spenditure is a huge part of our country's lifestyle that is essential in getting us out of this frightening, greed-caused recession, anything that would generate consumer dollars being put back into the community is not a bad thing.

Every month has a new consumer reason to spend and keep the cash revolving. It's the American way of keeping that capital spread around. Bottom line, that is good. But I thought the *day* was a bit boneheaded even during the best of times. Too easy an excuse for everyone to forget about showing love and concern every day during the rest of the year.
(oh, and yeah, Cupids realllllly annoy me LOLOL)

Go tell someone you care... every day.
From your heart :)

The memory of an old friend

went flashing through my brain today when, during one of my wildly rambling Internet links-following adventures in the wee hours of the deep night, I was lead to a website of the brilliantly depressing but oddly highly motivational Charles Bukowski.( )~one of the most intriguing American poets of what is sometimes called the Beat Generation. But to catagorize him as such is a diservice to his soul, methinks! He was sometimes labelled the "poet laureat of Skid Row".

Anywayyyyyy, the link trip reminded me of a much beloved, far-off friend whose life and mine crossed cyber paths for a half dozen years and brought many a smile and heart-poke to me. This is one of the poems I kept tucked in my *why I love the Internet and the amazing souls it brings into my life* file.


There's a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I'm too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I'm not going
to let anybody see

C. Bukowski

The Shell

The Shell

Lying on a beach half in and out of sand
waiting for the next wave to refresh.
I gingerly scooped the shell into my hand.

The pearlized beauty of curves and mounds
all pink in the center and hard outside
I held it to my ear to hear her sounds.

The quiet roar of life forever perpetually throbbed
inside her inner core of spiraled time.
This music of her heart could not be robbed.

I wondered
how many would share
the mysteries existing there.
Before someone put her up
upon some shelf.

I wondered
then I smiled.

Tucked back soft into the gritty wave
I hunkered down beside her for awhile.
Then left her so another soul she'd save.
