10 July

the zinnia are in bloom

at the community garden

last week we went to a concert in the old park on the harbor

where Joe and I had whiled away summer afternoons

when we were young

-way back in the '70s-
we sat with old friends on a faded quilt

we laughed about the good old days

and how crazy we used to be

and how crazy we still are

those boys ran about climbing rocks and

playing ball with the other kids in the park

just like we used to do


summer time

and the livin's easy

the neighbors walk past our porch on the way to the beach in the evenings singing

down the street some one is listening to 

"I see a bad moon a-rising, I see trouble on the way..."

the notes float above the houses

and through the open windows

and down the windy sidewalk

and all the people sing along in the late light of early evening

I held my first ever linky meme party last Tuesday

and had people join!

I wasn't expecting so many attendees

and was very happy and thankful

I really like the connection 

i get with blogging

even if i may never meet any of you in real life

i still feel a bond

and i love being able to share a part of my day here

and to share in a part of your days as well.


I would like to extend an open invitation to join me 

for my first ever link-up meme

Tuesday Afternoon

Tuesday Afternoon

I look forward to seeing you

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
