We are living in dark times. Sometimes watching the news can just be too overwhelming. Take a break and do something for yourself. Watch a sunset, feed the birds, take a hike in nature…. heal your soul! xoxo Colleen
This poem was written for the Instagram group @hergrowthcollective. The topic last week was “Overwhelmed.” I am a week behind because of our trip to Florida.
Hi there, Blogophiliacs and friends! Just releasing a little dark ink this evening, no worries! I have been reading online about the terrible storms that are ravaging most of the country and bombarding everyone with even more dreaded (dare I say it???) S-N-O-W and I-C-E! I’ve even read some fun poems about it in some of the Facebook notes.
I know it’s hard for anyone to believe, but after spending the last 23 years in the heat & humidity of South Florida, I sometimes find myself longing for a little bit of the white stuff….. but not THAT much!!! No, I’m not trying to rub it in. I grew up in Maryland, and I vividly remember dreading scraping the windshields and driving in the stuff. That was NOT fun. Please stay safe and warm, everyone… and hang tight, spring will be here before you know it!!! xoxo
