Mindfulness Monday – Creativity

I am taking a break from my blogs. I will be making all of them (yes there are many out there) private while I decide what to do.
This Mindful Monday is a good post to use as my soon to be swan song.
I may have yet one post in me — write my own swan song of sorts.
Please follow Wendy and her Mindfulness Mondays and other posts:

a calm mind is
a creative mind.”

I’d like to thank my dear friend, Lorraine, from Lorraine’s Frilly Freudian Slip, for taking the reigns last Monday and posting some great quotes for me, and on her birthday no less!  You are a true friend.  Happy birthday, a little late.

Monday Quotes – Gifts

Wendy needed a day off, so I filled in. Not mindfullness quotes, but quotes to be mindful of.

Picnic with Ants


Greetings! I am filling in for Wendy this Monday, and as it is my birthday, I thought I would use quotes about gifts. Not just the tangible, wrapped in fancy paper with ribbon and bow. But the intangible, the ephemeral, the ethereal gifts we can give ourselves every day.

“This life is your gift to yourself…Open it!”(anon)

“The greatest gift you can give yourself is a little bit of your own attention.” (Anthony J. D’Angelo)

“Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it. Don’t wait for it. Just let it happen.” (Agent Dale Cooper, Twin Peaks)

Kinda Mindfulness Monday Quotes – Halloween

A week late — howlin’ mad I forgot! Oops. That’s not so mindful.

Picnic with Ants


“He gathered the boy somewhat close
and thought,
Evil has only the power we give it.
I give you nothing.
I take back.

~ Ray Bradbury – Something Wicked This Way Comes

“If a man harbors any sort of fear,
it makes him landlord to a ghost.”

~ Lloyd Douglas

“Nature is a haunted house –
but Art –
is a house that tries to be haunted.”

~ Emily Dickinson

Halloween, a countdown

Willow has me howlin’ at the moon! Her countdown post is incredible! Her poetry, the music selections. Just perfect! Thanks, Willow, for putting this together — it’s fantastic.


Lorraine is doing a great theme entitled Countdown to Halloween. Well she is asking for songs, and books to read for Halloween. Well I put on my thinking cap and dug deep into my archives and found some of my old Halloween poems and revamped them for the season! I have added some of my favourite spooky music as for reading material …….

I know that it is raining I can see that it is wet

But you are my familiar and not a blooming pet!

I have asked you nicely I have even said please

Now go and get me food or I shall infest you with flees.

Excuse me, Lady Mistress, this does not seem quite right

Just where in my contract does it say I have to work…
