Welcome to our Friday and Weekend post with an eclectic mix of haiku and photography from Cape Ann MA and Dover England. Weather has been a mixed bag also this week from cold, to rain, high humidity and rather summery collection so we are not bored.
We are gradually healing from the bad back situation and other life situations. It is just one big great adventure! Now for some 'quiet time' in between, sometime soon. Balance, key, rather than riding the rapids. Anyone else feeling world energy moving a bit fast?????


We are linked with these creative bloggers:

Wishing you the best in each day. xxooo

  44. Sorry to hear about the bad back. Quick recovery is wished for you. Great collection of photos and words. The weather has indeed been interesting and a mixed bag for sure. Sorry I haven't visited here in a while, no excuses except for the fact that I haven't visited any one else or written much in a while. Hope all is good with you. Enjoy the energy of the water.

    Peace
