lost in the beauty…

I can see and feel the Summer season transitioning already. In the Spring, I am so ready for new growth, for renewal, for the return of my visual escapes. In the Fall, I practice a lot of positive self-talk as the flowers fade, the rains return and the light dulls. Thank goodness for the escape into other’s travels, creations, images, imagination here at WP.

Any timely advice appreciated…

Received this plea from George Okos in the comments section of an older (2010) post I did re skin cancer….one of my most frequently viewed (52,668 times) posts over the years…if anyone can help George with timely advice relevant to European health care please assist him. He’s not asking for money…but timely treatment advice. Respond in the comments section, in the link below, to George…long shot but maybe……………?

HELLO EVERYONE! I HAVE A SKIN CANCER TUMOR, ON MY RIGHT CHEST. UNFORTUNATELY, VERY BIG.   STARTED GROWING, ABOUT A YEAR AGO. I LIVED IN UK, BUT I MOVED TO PORTUGAL. BIG MISTAKE!
VERY BUROCRATIVE COUNTRY, THE PAPERWORK IS UNBELIEVEBLE SLOW! THATS WHY I AM NOT ABLE TO GO TO DOCTOR. I COULD, BUT IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR, THEY CHARGE 8000-9000 EURO FOR SURGERY. I DO NOT HAVE MONEY, AND NOBODY WANTS TO HELP ME! I TRIED, RED CROSS, SALVATION ARMY, A FEW CHIRCH, THEY NOT GOING TO HELP!
WHAT CAN I DO NOW? THE TUMOR IS PERMANENT BLEEDING, AFFECT MY LIFE! AM I GOING TO DIE?  HOW MUCH TIME I HAVE LEFT?   SOMEONE COULD GIVE ME A GOOD ADVICE?     THANKS! GOOD DAY TO YOU ALL!

5000 Posts: just saying….

5000 Posts!!!

5000 Posts….I have been posting along since 2008. But why? It does challenge one to be honest. Self satisfaction/ego…yes. I am here and a few souls of great compassion care enough to reaffirm I matter, if even in a moment…a photo. Self fulfillment: yes. I share me, my experiences, my heart, my understanding, my emotions…being ever mindful that in any given moment others are surviving, struggling, holding onto life, finding themselves, clawing back to the edge…..what an absolutely life affirming journey this is. Maybe we take it for granted with a cursory ‘I am a sensitive soul…yes I am’….but we all know that a real, to your knees moment awaits us all or has had us there before. We understand fragility, harshness, darkness. Thank you for letting me offer this little blurb about me…I am cognizant this weekend is truly about others that gave and perished. I squeezed this in on an ebb of compassion…thank you!

SwittersB & Fly Fishing: 6 years of growth

6 YearsI received my Anniversary notice from WordPress this morning. Six years and over 3700 posts later, I have a sense of evolution that is overall very satisfying. The growth has been because of exposure to other creative bloggers, their works and their shared discoveries. Images, wisdom, kindness, tolerances have combined to touch me and mellow me out. 

The process of creating something for sharing on the blog in itself is a pleasant distraction. Creating something that I am interested in or excited to share is most enjoyable when it is appreciated by others. But, I have come to equally enjoy the magic created by others with their camera, the ‘pen’, their imaginations. I see other’s discoveries in life and their growth. It has helped enumerable times reconfigure my life decisions and continued growth. Thank you out there!! You are very special.

Travel Envy & Photography: Lady Budd (Clanmother)

I have followed the pursuits of Rebecca Budd (Clanmother) in her discoveries of all things beautiful in art. However, I seem to have gazed right past her own artistic magic at Lady Budd….inspiring, mind tweaking photography that makes one go…’what am I doing sitting on my butt…get up and get going!’ Beautiful images as Rebecca travels and sees the shot and captures some great memories. Rebecca has several notable blogs that are referenced via Chasing Art and Lady Budd. Enjoy her quest for visual beauty in The Gallery. I particularly enjoyed the photo of the Scottish Highlands.

Every Day in May Challenge: Express Your Self

Every Day in May challenge has been offered up by three fly fishing bloggers, who want your input each day of May. Your challenge? Take that topics list and each day of the month will challenge you to write about that day’s theme (or some variation of  it). Keep it short and  sweet. Make us think. Make us wish. Make us laugh. Maybe make us wonder.

The inspiration for this great concept is coming at you from three directions:

How Small a Trout, Memoirs of a Fly Girl & Miss P over at Fresh Start. “Every Day in May is a blogging throw-down to all fishing and outdoor bloggers. 

“CHALLENGE: POST TO YOUR BLOG EVERY DAY IN MAY. Mayfly
hatches, spring runoff, spawning fish, tulips, debauched May Day pagan
rituals—blog it all. Blog to learn, blog to remember, blog to forget.
Document May in images, words, quotes, links, whatever, wherever.
We’re providing prompts for each day, but feel free to interpret,
misinterpret, reject, or improvise on these themes. To accept the
challenge and pass it on, reblog this kick-off post and graphic, then
<strong>tag your May posts with “every day in May”. We’ll
post a list of everyone who guts it out until June.”

1. May Day
2. home waters
3. current
4. tying
5. fishing
6. praying
7. working
8. hatching
9. grinning and laughing
10. conservation
11. waders
12. something completely different
13. Mother’s Day
14. rod
15. line
16. leader
17. fly
18. fish, fish, fish
19. more fish
20. greenery
21. bugs
22. runoff
23. safety first
24. memory
25. shoreline
26. lessons learned
27. bucket list
28. news
29. inspiration/aspiration
30. fish philosophy
31. achievement

Don’t worry if you see this and May is already here; there are no late
fees nor penalties for early withdrawal.

To all you who blog about other stuff, like knitting or wine or fancy
mice: feel free to copy this idea and do your own Every Day In May!

So, come on. Note the topics and each and every day of May take that topic for a short spin on your blog. Mention the Every Day in May challenge. Enlist others to exercise their creative side along with you. Hit the FB tag, re-post this, do your own post about it, please spread the word.
