“Vault of Memories”

So beautiful!!

lilies, sparrows and grass

Vault of Memories

Our vault of memories
opens and closes
with clanging sounds,
redefines our dreams,
rudely awakens us
in the midst of deepest
slumbers —

snaps the whip
as we make decisions
in love and business,
directs our hands to wield
or spare the rod
in the discipline
of our children —

it is a vault,
yet much the same as churchyards
where we light candles
and whisper softly
as the tallow accumulates
and we mold the putty
in our hands,
rewrite the  scripted scenes,
revisit glorious sunsets,
adorn the porches of summer
with scarlet geraniums —

we contrive perfection
from the past,
yet through this somnolent veil
reality’s briars arise,
the grown-up tears,
the laughter
of childhood —

of catching grasshoppers
and climbing fruit trees,
the dimes earned from chores,
the aplomb gained
from life’s little triumphs —

and for certain
this confidence grows
and is sustaining us:

Getting the camera out!!

I’ve been inspired by the photos of others here, and I know I like to see photos with text so I’m going to do that more.

Saw the Attorney for financial bankruptcy;  I’ll Reiki again this evening for lingering emotional bankruptcy;  we’ve resolved the bankruptcy of trust in our relationships;  the spiritual bankruptcy has turned to certificates of deposit that back up the ATM’s of our souls—oooh, not too poetic, eh??—our grandchildren represent most of our riches—what else will capture my energies??  I am so easily drawn into what interests others that I flail about when I am alone with Time.    Thanks for coming here. . .Image

Frustrated– Avoiding Spiritual & Emotional & Physical Health Bankruptcy

Couldn’t access the Reader here or Freshly Pressed just now.  Don’t know if that’s my computer or WordPress.

Going to see the attorney this week to begin our Bankruptcy process.  It’s uncomfortable yet OK.  We’ll be in better shape.  For years I have struggled with my Workaholic and Successaholic addictions trying to give priority to my Health.  Repeatedly I have felt the spiritual admonition:to take care of my Total Health lst–that avoiding Spiritual & Emotional & Physical Bankruptcy has been more important.  I think I’ve been “successful” so far.

Thanks for all the encouragement here. . .

What is ReiKi?
Reiki is the Japanese word for “Spiritual life force energy”. Reiki is not a religion, or a new-age practice but is an ancient healing art from Japan.
Reiki practitioners do not heal, they merely act as a channel for this Life force energy.

It is also not intended to take the place of traditional medical practices, but to compliment…

This above all: To your own self, be true. William Shakespeare !!!!!


PTSD - A Way Out.com

be the best cheerleader possible when speaking or thinking about oneself.
program self worth with positive affirmations repeated until habit, if healing or happiness are desired.
praise oneself, shower with accolades and positive comments.
We are perfect as our true self, sharing this planet and journey with all, related to every thing, connected.
Do no harm!!!! Start with oneself, never say or treat oneself with anything but patience, praise and compliment.
Our self image is created by us.
create a positive, happy, jubilant soul for oneself.
be true to you and then seek the opportunity and awareness of each moment.
