I woke this morning
turned to embrace
but you were
where are you my
my darling one
you have left me
bereft without counsel
without cause, just
i reach out
in vain hope
to touch skin again
I am inspired to try and write by Heather, she is truly a fabulous writer
and she takes part in 5 Minute Fridays...check out what she achieves!!! This is my scribbling from this morning, a couple of minutes writing, no editing, just as it is.

In memory of the late Liz Taylor
"My mother says I didn't open my eyes for eight days after I was born, but when I did, the first thing I saw was an engagement ring. I was hooked."
I think its great that Liz was able to see humour in her life...lets face it without our humour life would be pretty sad and dull!

It is always sad to here of a death and when it is someone we all know and love it seems even more poignant. Today we farewell a lady who appeared to have it all. Elizabeth Taylor was famous, abundantly wealthy, loved by many and fabulously gorgeous - a true style icon.
She was the epitomy of what so many people strive for in this world.
However she also suffered greatly. She had a number of broken marriages and love affairs, and she had terrible times with ill health. She struggled with these issues and had the added stress of doing so in the public limelight.
What a blessing that she was surrounded by her children when she finally bid adieu to this world. Today I remember fondly a lady who appeared to me to have so much grace and poise - Elizabeth Taylor, I honour you.

I have come across this lovely blog site here and thought I would join in! Rachel's life inspires me....take a further read of the stuff she deals with EVERY day - I think she is awesome!!!
this is the view out of my favourite window....our front lounge...
this is my room, my hidey hole, my bolt hole from the world, the place where I read, write and generally muse all things important to me!!
Why don't you join in with Rach here and show us your favourite window view.
Well its a public holiday here in South Australia for Adelaide Cup Day so in this vein it is only appropriate that I find something inpired by this sport of legends - the great horse race!!

Now I am not generally a material girl but when I spied these beautiful creations I must confess my heart did a little pitter patter.
I must add this too

I have been feeling a little blue these last couple of weeks,
so thought it would be a good idea to go in search of some sunshine
for my soul!
a simple sunhsine strip
heart warming walls
I truly ruly would love this bag
anything gifted in these tins would be just too sweet
doesn't this cake make you smile...
a New York cab stands out
daffodils - make me so happy
roses in the simplest of vases - this is sweet
I would love to run with freedom right now...
gumboots & all!!

Today I am so thankful for AUTUMN - My favouritest season of the year!!!
I love walking amongst her leaves,
I love her colours
I lover her rosy hues
I love her cooler mornings
where crispness of air
makes you feel alive
and her magical sunshiney days...
warm your very soul.
