When Pieman was very young, and living at the beginnings of time, he often slept with the Cave Bear Clan during stormy weather. * Over the course of many such nights, Big Brown Bear who was also very old, taught Pieman the nature of his belly-roar. * To this day, Pieman makes use of his roar in dreams, but…

I go, but do not mourn for me Or grieve that I will never see The springtime blossom on the tree Bear autumn gold. * The journey calls, the way is clear, No longer will you find me here, The door will close without a tear, The hearth is cold. * Perhaps these walls will soon…

But actually, in the reality I have chosen for them, they are fairies. They are creatures of earthly impossibility. Creations, it seems, designed almost to prove that the impossible…

Fork in the road

Originally posted on Chronicles of an Orange-Haired Woman!:
https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/fork/ I have come to a fork in the road. It is dark, unknown, frightening. But adrenaline does not discriminate, does it? It is triggered by fear and excitement equally – and the bodily sensations are identical. So, this fork releases floods of chemicals into my system. I look at the trees – tall, tightly-packed, apparently…

Then, the twenty or so plaster (reproduction) engravings … Read More History and Mystery on Caldey Island – Part Three, Ancient Suns

Can stone turn to tree or was that just eroded memory? * Yet, if water turns to earth and air and earth to fire and air to water by dent of long forgotten alchemy. * And if indeed the Fire-King and Earth-Maiden have spawned a beautiful daughter… * There may yet be some fleeting semblance of hope for…

Happy 70th Birthday Pops!

Originally posted on But I Smile Anyway…:
It is a very special day today for me. My precious Pops is turning 70! It’s pretty unbelievable that he is now a septuagenarian! ( I think that’s what you call them!) Humble to a fault, with a heart bigger than the universe, that’s my Pops. He’s been my guide, my inspiration, my support since, well, forever.…
