Exchanging Roots for Wings

The term roots for wings is not something I came up with but got from a blog I discovered yesterday. It just so happens to fit the events that are occurring in our lives.

To read up on a delightful woman I have come to know, who is rooted beautifully in her home but also has wings that carry her from one inspired creation to another. Visit Margaret here.


Is the Grass Greener

I don’t know if it’s ants in my pants or what..but ever since I have been bitten by the world of blogging I have had a penchant to explore and set up a blog or two, only to find that it wasn’t quite what I was looking for. Much of the adventure, for me is in the design aspect and how I want it to appear to readers. So, once again I set out on a quest and now I invite you dear friends to visit me, where I thought perhaps the grass is greener. Of course I jest with you as WordPress has been a great experience and has opened the door for me to meet wonderful, inspirational and creative individuals..Yes, I mean you! I may have to make a decision on down the road..You will find me, Ramble Ann here. Eventually this will coincide with our plans for the days ahead.

Winter Silence

Winter silence

A time to reflect

A time to bare one’s soul

Looking at what is pure

What is cold

What is stale and old…

Winter silence

For some it’s intrusive

And unwanted

With open arms

I embrace this temporary season

Ready to replace

That which is not steady

With strength and courage

That I draw from the beauty

And the Silence of winter…

Wednesday Weirdness

I was chilling on our couch and spotted this..

Maybe a little bizarre but there is a strange attraction to it..and maybe packing is getting to me…


I am kind of fascinated with the faucet…

We got some news today that put a damper on our day. We will continue to sit tight and wait to see what the outcome will be. Often in life we can be going one direction and then all of a sudden…surprise.. a door is closed that you thought was open. We were going with plan A and now it looks like we might have to go with plan B and we’d better figure plan B out quick.. Nothing serious! Besides we are in good hands..

Sometimes good things fall apart, so better things fall together..Marilyn Monroe

The best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing you can do is the wrong thing, the worst thing you can do is nothing..Theodore Roosevelt

It helps to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel..
