This shows how resilient and determined locals are that live in Key West. We refuse to be blown away.
The swan is in the shadows but only has to float just a bit to be in the Light.
I enjoyed this post and can resonate with his remark
“I sent the picture to my friend, to inspire and sustain her on her difficult journey, a reminder that it is often only after we travel through and leave a place of deep darkness that we enter a place of great light.”
Just earlier I was mentioning in conversation the word “Metaphor” and “Parable”
I found a picture of a huge Iguana I took a few years back here in Key West.
Many of these beautiful creatures succumbed to a deep freeze that enveloped Key West back in 2010.
“Comatose iguanas tumbled off trees. Countless native and exotic fish floated to waters’ surface. Manatees huddled at warm-water outfalls of power plants. And young sea turtles, seized by the cold, bobbed to the top like beach balls.”
The same year my special friend went to prison.
Today, I decided to print “Iggy” and send an uplifting card to him.
Comparing his situation to the strong Iguanas and how they survived and returned.
Our island is filled with baby Iguanas.
We don’t see the Dinosaur Iguanas anymore.
They do come back.
Light and Dark…Dividing the Shadows

Rain is falling
The palms are swaying
occasionally the thunder claps in applause
The cats lay sprawled on my bed
ears peaking up with the sounds
All is well in their world
It is steady now,falling lightly upon the land
raindrops gently tap at the window panes
I love rain,so pure
It’s a full moon and it’s hiding
It will be gone with the morning light
Time to pause
The storm is over
The Sun will rise
Rain puddles will evaporate
No more tears
No more applause
A New Day
Presented with The Gifts of Life
Dusk is my favorite time of day
The light shows barely enough to light the pastels of the sky
Be Well and Wise
Be thankful for the Moments
