Change is great but not when it’s the pre-requisite for accepting yourself because if it does, the price tag will be your freedom.

“Even the best fall down sometimes”

from the song “How Six Songs Collide”

The song expresses how events that occur in our lives do not always appear to be fair or even make sense.

a little story about Dyed  Easter Eggs

Years ago when my granddaughter and her friend were much younger we had a fun-filled afternoon of dying Easter eggs.

We sat up a plastic covering on the floor,arranged all our hard boiled eggs and cups of dye.

My glass of wine sitting close by.

The colors of red on the plastic after wine spilled.

After we finished we loaded up the car and went back to my daughters to share our creations.

Months later on a very hot summer day, a terrible odor was perpetuating from my car.

Upon investigating, two eggs were found and very quickly disposed of.

Hard Boiled Eggs easy to peel has too me felt like a game of Russian Roulette. Sometimes they were perfect , other times they made great egg salad Open-mouthed smile

I have used old eggs, new eggs, baking soda, salt OR vinegar in the water

Nothing seems too matter.

So each time I boil eggs I either have perfect deviled eggs that peeled like easy peasy. Or I just use in salads.

Hempy the Hamster loves them anyway he gets them.

My secrets that work sometimes.

  1. Eggs must not be fresh (Use Old Ones)
  2. Don’t let them boil forever, bring too boil and let sit 15 minutes.
  3. After cooking, let the eggs rest in an ice-bath to “shock” them.

Say a little prayer…Please my little eggs “Peel for me”

The Sensitive Dragonfly


They say that as a creature of the wind, a dragonfly represents change. Its wings are sensitive to slight breezes, so we too should heed where the wind blows us in life.

Funny, I am forever saying “However the wind blows is OK with me”

Dragonflies also live near water, which in and of itself is symbolic of the subconscious mind. Dragonflies symbolically carry a message dealing with deeper thought, reminding us to pay attention to our own deeper thoughts and desires.

Finally, a dragonfly lives a short life, so it must live life to the fullest.

Keeping these thoughts in mind as one progresses through life may be a source of focus for meditation, improving one’s life choices in the process.

I live with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and The Gulf of Mexico on the other,a little Island Stream.

I am surrounded by water and lots of dragonflies.

Water and Ocean salty Air~ what more could a person need ?

Fire to keep our inner light burning and Earth to ground us.

Earth~Air-Fire-Water…the elements that sustain us.
