How to Help Change the World as a Surfer

 

As many of you who follow me know, not only do I live in coastal Rhode Island, but I love this tiny state that boasts big beauty, breathtaking scenery and diverse geography.

Although my guest, Jay Recinto, is sharing a message for Surfers and Surfer wanna – be’s like me, I think it is a great message which applies to all of us as people. This earth is not our own, yet we all have a hand in it.

As local beach lovers we ask you to share this post if you agree with the message.

Daughter Fall (A Poem about Letting Go)

WP_20151110_09_44_43_Pro

Poetry can be a snapshot of the day, a moment, a memory, a season. It so often captures what I find hard to articulate in essay form, and like paintings leaves room for varied conclusion. I have written this poetic response for my blogging sister and friend Karen, for her Tuesday at Ten prompt. It was perfect because I had already captured the morning in images by the ocean, but this prompt allowed me to approach with words the unspoken emotions pumping through my mom heart today.

I invite you to have a look at the amazing pictures (amazing because RI is a beautifully photographic state, not because I am a great photographer! ) I grabbed and linked for you to enjoy: Narragansett, RI/Fall.

I hope you enjoy the poem and the pictures…

Dear Summer, It’s Been Nice but…

Salty Brine Beach, Rhode Island

Salty Brine Beach, Rhode Island

Dear Summer,

It’s been nice having you here,  but I think it’s time we had a chat. You have been amazing, and I appreciate you making sure that our little tourist town made some money this season. Not that we are in need, but let’s just say a “green” Summer makes for pleasant Townies. This humidity thing, though…I never have liked. I like it less now that I am almost one year over the half century mark. However the garden is appreciating it, and I the succulent Tomatoes it generously offers.

Shall I pour you an Iced coffee, or hot? Not sure how you do the ice-cube thing.

When Your Days Feel Unspiritual- Turn Left

 WP_20150522_07_58_06_Pro (1)

May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5 :23-24

Friday morning, after dropping my daughter off, I turned left instead of right as I pulled out of the High School parking lot. I don’t always. Often I surrender myself to the daily routines that define my life presently. Every once in a while my routine gets interrupted by…life. But hey, I strive to keep a steady pace and confess the need for the security of knowing there are things that need to be done and the fact that I need to do them. The drumbeat of life beats on.

But, another week has passed and Spring is caressing my cheeks through the open car window, so I do the best thing I can in the beauty of this particular  morning. Before heading back into another day, I turn left.

Hey, It’s Miscellany Monday!

InstagramCapture_ac9b48ca-b2a5-4acf-b471-a0d4888eb27f

 

Well, it has been some time since I have posted a Miscellany Monday post. But guess what? You,  lucky little pumpkin lovers, are in for the ADD writers thrill of a lifetime! I exaggerate but still, I write, so deal with it. If you recall those posts from my old blog, they were by far the most popular posts. Excluding guest posts. Which means you really like other people to write on my blog, and/or for me to just randomly share my crazy self in a miscellaneous fashion. It’s OK, I still love you.

The reason I wanted to reach out and communicate straight away is I have a couple of announcements to make and I know this next month is going to have my head spinning! So welcome, grab your coffee, tea, or cider and let’s catch up!
