Mess

Hurricane Ian left a mess here in Florida but I am so very thankful we were not hit full on. This short poem is dedicated to all of the people affected by Ian.

There’s a mess on the lawn and a mess on the car
the damage is seen very near and real far
For there is no big “broomer” to clean up this mess
I’m dreading the work I must really confess
But it has to be done and be done ’til its gone
‘Cause I really must see my green grassy lawn.

Superimpose

Challenge

wk 279 superimpose

Lucy’s Big Feet

To superimpose that she had real big feet
Lucy used towels and a comfortable sheet
They were not that ugly, they were clean but she knew
That if people saw something she’d see something too
She didn’t want help nor some clean soft woolen socks
She only wanted to be known for her long golden locks

What’s going on

Brian has been having satellite issues….I started Last on the Card for him. Please refer any posts back to his site or #lastonthecard!

bushboys world

You may have noticed a lack of participation on my blog for the last few days. On Sunday my satellite feed stopped due to a major power outage.

I have been checking comments as the scheduled posts have gone out via my tablet which is difficult as the signal isn’t that good out here in the bush.

My end of the month posts probably won’t be very prompt and will be in October at this stage as I will be away on the weekend as well.

Last on the Card – September 2022

I am only “hosting” this for Bushboy as their satellite is not consistent due to weather. I “offered” to do it. The quotes are because I sort of just said I was going to do it… Anyhow, here is their site: https://bushboy.blog/

Last on the card – August September 2022

Last Photo for August September 2022

How wonderful to have thirty-six people show us their last photos for July. There was one hundred and ninety-four views, with sixty-eight likes and many thanks to those thirty-six people who contributed their good and not so good photos.

Like a lot of people I forget and am surprised at what was the last photo on the four devices I use to take photos. I went from –

  • you wonder why
  • to an accidental image
  • getting ready for a post
  • to careful framing would be better

So let’s see what you have for August September 2022. There isn’t a time limit so you can post your last photos anytime. The last photo for the month will always be the last photo

The rules are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 31st August.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link bushboys world in the comments https://bushboy.blog/
5. Tag “The Last Photo”

So here is mine: So excited to find this avocado while cleaning up debris from the storm!

This is the first avocado from the tree in our yard!

Grief in Happiness by Maria L. Berg 2022

Exploring the Big 5 abstractions is proving an interesting challenge. Turning my attention to happiness, I found some interesting websites:

Happiness Academy

World Happiness Foundation

happiness.com

https://www.dayofhappiness.net/

https://happinessday.org/ outlines 10 steps to Global Happiness:

  1. Tell everyone
  2. Do what makes you happy
  3. Give and spread happiness to others
  4. Attend a world happiness event
  5. Celebrate
  6. Share what makes you happy on social media
  7. Promote UN Resolutions 65/309 & 66/281
  8. Advance the United Nations global goals for sustainable development
  9. Enjoy nature
  10. Adopt Happytalism

They define global happiness this way:

  1. Happiness as a fundamental human right and goal for all
  2. Happiness as a universal aspiration in the lives of all
  3. Happiness as a way of living, being, and serving communities and society
  4. Happiness as a north star for individuals, communities, governments, and society.
  5. Happiness path toward achieving the sustainable development goals
  6. Happiness as a “new paradigm’…

Elements of Magic

Raven has posted a beautiful sonnet

Jezzie G

Inspired by and written for Simply 6 Minutes – thank you, Christine

Wow, the image is hitting my chakras, it feels profound and spiritual. A sacred magic circle is a place out of time and space, a spiritual link between the worlds of physical and spiritual. Here goes…

Elements of Magic
Form: Beymorlin Sonnnet

The circle cast by three inviting peace
And spirits gather keeping demons out
Commune in whispers there’s no need to shout
The arcane words as time begins to cease

Lady Moon, Father Sun, dance wild and free
In love and light, there is nothing to fear
As spirits gather there is magic here
And their crystal orb is surrounding me

My body in robes and the altar set
I welcome them all to my sacred place
And hear their wisdom never to forget
For they grant me, love, throughout time and space

In elements of magic…

We are safe and we are home! Thank God we don’t have much damage, mostly just a mess. Neighbors of ours were not that lucky nor are people on the east coast of FL. Sanibel and Fort Myers got demolished, which is so sad.

I hope everyone on the east coast who are still in the path of the storm stay safe. Thank you for all of you caring words!
