Well spent youth

My favorite times in the past revolved around these days of clothing, photography, and friends.

 I miss you very much youthful days of  randomness.

be youthful
have fun.


I just can't wait for the sun to shine
all day long
all over
so it's warm and bright

I'm here
just waiting
waiting for the sun

Always one on the floor

This house is not for children.
I know you'd think other wise with all the toys around, but seriously not for kids. As I'm learning right now it is also not for chickens who enjoy scratching and eating things off the floor.
I tend to drop things every now and then. Most often it's my needle. Luckily I have plenty of them. Unluckily, Jon often finds them for me near or in his foot on the floor.
watch out
have fun

another world

Often times as I'm drifting from daily task to hobby I get lost in thought and distracted by tiny things. I lose all sense of time and responsibility and just dream of maybes, what ifs, and how come. This mind twists it self into tangles of confused emotional vines longing for more time and motivation. The motivation to climb to the top and look down. Only I'm not to fond of heights and the view from down here is very lovely with the sun glare , silhouettes, and shadows where I shade myself.
I'm enjoying my stance and here I shall dwell.

"Chances by Winter Shaw"

Truth lies within

the boundaries of I

the wall I build

the bridge I break

fulfills my heart

with each of my aches

sorry I'm not

regret I don't fake

each choice I'm given

is the chance

only i can take.
have fun

"Natural Beauty by Winter Shaw"

Random beauty fulfills my heart's inner most desires

it seeps in unbeknownst to my unfocused mind

encasing all thoughts in a shroud of lead

it's essence circulating through sturdy veins

pulsing with electric sensations of openness

life and experience

sight and scent

to me recall models of look before ambition or stance

touch and taste bring to light

the sensual nature confined purely by the flesh

intertwined as one collected force

it's power consumes all stimulation

an impression cemented to memory

that never gathers dust

it's always revisited

at a stir of that familiar sweet scent

of all that is beauty youth and age

a fragrance bold with passion

so great few possess

such beauty

this natural of state.
Have fun

"I must have missed by Winter Shaw"

A faulty connection

a salty correction

blood to water

water to wine

whine to bitch

bitch directly to ditch

up and gone

stand on strong

move along.

"Breath it in by Winter Shaw"

I amaze myself

with each pulled in breath

this simple task

of bringing in something

not a part of me

that has the power

of completing me

"In the cards by Winter Shaw"

If I give all that is me and receive nothing in exchange

what is left for my heart to hold

....i fold

I choose now to stand

with these undefined suites and broken chains

with clear expression, able mind and steady hand at times

to toss all that there is on one side

grip a hold and play the game

I do not understand.
have fun

"The art of Invention by Winter Shaw"

An artistic world of make believe envelops my sights and drowns my soul,

colors and shapes spill from emptiness to fill this destination,

creation of ones heart, organized by emotional sway,

tick tick tick that old clock

clacks it's boredom out loud,

audible it's tedium,

An energetic play spins past the stage,

whirling and gathering momentum.

A dust collective

accumulating into a cloud of new invention.

Have fun

"Thorns by Winter Shaw"

The thorn on a rose

sharp as the

someone who knows.

From the mail!

I love getting mail, absolutely love it.
Recently, some fabulous items were sent to me via the post.

These amazing chocolates from Europe were divine. I can't even explain how absolutely delicious I find dark chocolate. I'm not a fan of milk or any other type of chocolate, but dark chocolate puts my soul at ease. It slowly covers every taste bud and wraps my heart in sweet chocolate escape.
Thank you so very much for your kindness and fabulous taste in decadent flavors of chocolate. And a delightfully beautiful European scarf that shares it's shade with chocolate dreams. (The only chocolate item that still remains)
Thank you so much Karen.
Just in time for Easter I received this fancy hand-made apron from my fabulous niece, Hannah.

I absolutely love it.(Way more then I love sweeping)
I am always a fan of Ric-a-rack, hanging doodle balls, and bows.
It's so clever too! fully adjustable to any size or height with the ribbon.

Thank you very much Hannah,( and Summer)
love and
miss you
have fun
