"Anything can be..."


“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
― Shel Silverstein





stitches opening

wounds weeping

hole stretching

bandages staining

surrendering...














gift counting

joy filling



"silver" healing

 dizziness dissipating

fatigue vanishing

 bird's nest discovering

"Picnik"ing

golden sun streaming

bejewled sky painting

soul stirring

thanksgiving

any-thing

every-thing

  1. my, what a way you have with words, and that eye for photography is something i'd like to learn from you (if you lived around the block instead so far away). i love the way your toes and your puppy are part of the third picture.

    any chance i could get a copy of the first shot?

  6. I am so sorry vicky you feel so bad.
    Like a little bird, working hard to get out of its shell not knowing about what the future holds.
    But you know, none of us do.Some suffer with illnesses and live on to see more and more beautiful things and others walk thinking of a future they will never see cause a car hits them or something else happens.
    One just never knows.I guess the drugs are making the healing process take longer.You have such a battle taking place right now inside of you so you must rest and be patient.Give your body a chance to do its thing.God speed and may he bless you to win this battle.

  8. Vicky my Mom's wound in her leg did the same thing. It was the body healing itself. We had a hard time keeping those bandages from being wet.They had to be changed often but she recovered.So will you.

  10. Vicky, we saw the same sky this morning. The very same one. :) From the same view. I took some pics from Lindenwood; one's on my Facebook wall. God sure does great work! I'm not surprised you did as well! Love the nests...and the hope of flight. And everything you shared...in its sparseness. Its very poetic, friend. Finally, thank you for your dear response to my post this morning. Somehow in the sharing of that, a part of me was freed too. I have not been wanting to share anything public to protect her. Now, the healing can start. :)

    Wishing you a weekend full of golden-pink skies!
