My muse seems to be on vacation or has a case of the winter 'blahs' ~ am not sure quite which. I seem to want to 'burrow' in with a book and let the world go away. Yet, I will 'keep on keeping on'. Visualizing 'spring time' in my heart.  Is it Spring time where you are?

  7. Cape Ann si so beautiful - the sun rises above the deck of gray nautical clouds, overpowering the darkness to let us know that a great day is now at hand. Although the boat is going to sea under a dark sky...lovely views at the northerly shore of the Bay!

  15. Good Morning Carol and Greetings from Ireland

    I just wanted to pop by and wish you
    a very Happy St. Patrick's Day.

    May you always have
    Walls for the winds,
    A roof for the rain,
    Tea beside the fire,
    Laughter to cheer you,
    Those you love near you,
    And all your heart might desire!
