~~ In the Clouds ~~

Here is where my head is at today (and for the last several days, actually):

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.  ~Mark Twain

Sometimes you're the windshield.
Sometimes you're the bug.
~Mary Chapin Carpenter, THE BUG

When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me,
Speaking words of wisdom, Let it Be.
~The Beatles, LET IT BE

I think it is referred to as a slump, right?  I know we all get in one from time to time.  Maybe it comes with my age, but we women all hate to blame things on that, don't we?

So in my constant search for peace, I came across this:

by Robert M. Hensel
Cool morning spit on bladed grass.
A thousand silky fingers tickling toes.
The strong scent of natures freshly cut hair.
Mans spiritual stamping ground toward inner peace.

Sounds nice, I think.  Walking barefoot in the cool grass.  Imagining being rooted to Mother Earth.  Thinking peaceful thoughts.  Good stuff....

A walk here would DEFINITELY do the trick...

In my effort to SNAP OUT OF IT, I am working on an Etsy shop.  I have laid the groundwork.  My next step is to take pictures of my little goodies and get them loaded.  Much more on that to follow.

Meanwhile, I believe a nice drive by the beach on my lunch hour is in order.  It has always worked wonders!!



  1. Well there you go Carol, saltwater is a cure for anything!! Oh by the way, we just did the Jordan Pond loop Sat. when we were out hoping to catch a glimpse of the Obamas. Except we did it in the reverse direction of your photo. Great place. Oh and welcome to the wonderful world of Etsy, I think the hardest part is finding the time to photograph while the light is right. ~Lili

  2. Funny how we all seem to hit slumps at the same time. I talked about this on my blog yesterday too. Enjoy it while it lasts because the rush of creative energy can sometimes be exhausting.

  3. Hi Carol! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. :)
    The photos and sentiments are perfect ~ I hope you are out of your slump and have a wonderfully blessed weekend! xoxo


Your comments mean so much.
Many thanks for taking the time to drop me a note.
Warmest regards ~ Carol
