My cat loves to play with my reading glasses....what I didn't know is he could be wearing them when I'm not looking! Thanks for the philosophy and the grammar lesson today +Peter Noah Thomas

Crop Circles

Appearing as if by magic
The discovery is made
In the light of day
One circle 
Is not enough
It must go round and round
This mystery may confound
The clues grow by leaps and bounds
The culprit is a....ummm
Hound.....arf!

Thanks for this great share +Joe Smith 
 
Crop circles ...what are they and how are they made? The mystery continues...

PAT
Photo At Twilight
That could be the name
But there seems to be more
A galactic  game
We don’t see it often
But then when we do
It’s a cosmic celebration
Brought into view
Between daylight and darkness 
Venus applauds
As her team takes a kick
Beating the odds
The moon sails right over
Above the cross bars
It’s a Point After Touchdown
Beyond all the stars

The concert is over
The full moon is high
The stars share their light 
Inviting all around to
Hear the sweet first  notes
Of a new little trumpeter
His grandfather smiles
As do we all

Yellow Jackets

Black stripes 
Sporting
Yellow jackets
Appropriate attire
For a flyer
Buzzing the air
Most debonaire
Some like to swoop 
Some like to explore
A little something too sweet
For this one to ignore
In the drink
As he sinks
He’s in trouble
I think
The major issue
Beyond completing the dive
Is wondering if
He’ll make it back to the hive
Alive

Red Satin Shoes

Red satin shoes
Soft to my toes
Carry my feet
Where they will go
Red fuzzy centers
In drowsy daisies
Guide my eyes
At end of  day’s ease 
Light the way to
A red painted rail
A bridge for another journey

Work
Occupation
singer/songwriter...musician... lover of the arts
Skills
Vocalist....lyricist....harpist....pianist....folk artist....optimist... and a few other "ists"
Story
Tagline
I go with the flow, even though, I like my toes to touch bottom and my head to be above the waterline from time to time.....
Introduction
Love living large in a small town in the south...moved around a lot growing up....I've seen a lot of places...but  love where I am now the best....in a little town with a big heart....

This is the short of it..
(since I'm 5 foot 2 inches tall) 

music: most all....well...almost all...
art 
writing
humor
reading
science
photography 
fitness
fashion....not really

My postings are informal and conversational...items that catch my fancy for the moment...76.87653%  of my posts are public... (most all of em are) .....so what you see is pretty much what you get...
..Stop by and say hi!

Here's the long version
These are a few of my interests 
Music:
From bluegrass to blues...classic to country...like it all... (mostly).... Sing as the vocalist with a Celtic Americana band  and have enjoyed that pleasure for years.. ...also play a Celtic harp in a harp/flute duo ..music is a big part of my life... 
Art: water colors, oils, acrylics, pastels
I dabble... I'll soon have everything in our entire house repainted from walls and woodwork to tables,chairs and pictures...
Fiber Arts: All kinds however
I made one Pawleys Island hammock...took me an extremely long time to do it.. about 40 million hours....my husband and I still swing in it...it is in the "did that and moved on" category
Photography: 
I appreciate photography and those that make it happen! This is another great area I find to be most inspirational to me here....I just love looking at what some very gifted people are willing to share ......About photography... I'm  learning...I usually take photos with the idea of combining them with my writing...but...the photos I post are mine....if I post something that is not my photo, I give credit to the photographer...
I share because I want to embrace ideas here....I try to find a balance..so  work I admire in areas that interest me.....something that speaks to me...or makes me laugh...or helps me to learn....will often share a spot on my page....

Sciences:behavioral sciences,environmental sciences, biology, technology...and some other "ologies".... anything that has to do with the brain....cognition...the world...the universe ...etc...
Reading: science fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, poetry, non-fiction....
Health: fitness, nutrition, cooking..well actually I'm interested in just thinking about cooking
I used to tap dance, but only in laundry mats waiting for the clothes to dry (college glory days)....please don't believe that.....it's true, but I can only admit it to strangers.........and blah...blah...blah...
this is way too long...come back tomorrow and it will be shorter.....:-)


I'm in this for an exchange of positive ideas... I don't include politics or religious views into this mix....
