I am cleaning emails and came across this beauty …
Dolphins At Shore
On a warm sunny day, there lived a dolphin named Aqua who wanted to explore the human world. Aqua didn’t know that it was dangerous up there. A river dolphin named Lavender came down from the river and had said that the dolphin could go up. So the dolphin went up and 1 minute later she found herself laying on the shore. She couldn’t move so she just laid there until a young girl named Tacitus and others noticed her and the girl called for her father who was one of the dolphin helpers. Aqua got back.
She never went back up on the shore again. As for Tacitus, she went on to help other dolphins. She earned herself a nickname called Super Dolphin Helper Daphne. Then Aqua & Daphne met again while Daphne was swimming. Aqua kept following her so they started their own company and Aqua got a nickname as well which was Dolphin Assistant Spring. As time went by they both got older and then they didn’t use their body no longer. But Daphne transferred into a dolphin while Spring became a human. So Spring got her wish later in life.
They lived happily ever after.

Here’s to a lovely day!
I just received this photo from The Romano Duo and it hit me with all the feels, causing my eyes to pool with liquid joy, love, laughter, and sadness … all at the same time. (Do you see Team TLC’s photos? HA! They are so fun!)
We are so happy we got to see them in person yesterday, as we stood on the 2nd floor patio, and they stayed down below outside the front door. That was fun and wonderful! (They brought chairs and sat down in the shade. Ha!)
I am incredibly thankful to be healthy, to have food, a beautiful place to live, that Thomas, Lillian and I are together, and that we share this life together.
For many years I have written morning pages/ journal writing, and for the past month I have been closing with 3 things for which I am grateful. It’s a powerful practice if anyone would like to try it. Don’t just list what you’re grateful for, expand on it with why you are grateful. You just may feel your shoulders relax, your jaw unclench, and feel a tad bit lighter afterwards. Sending oceans of love to all … xoxo
The Roses Of Spring
Soft as silk
red like a strawberry;
sometimes pink as cherry blossoms
roses of spring;
colorful as the rainbow
As I lay
in roses of spring,
I hear the whisper of the wind.
Roses of Spring

Incredibly creative idea by Lillian Darnell …. She has created an interview between two fictional characters discussing a book. Lillian’s fun idea for a book review with a twist! I hope you’ll check it out … Pretty quick read.

Another wonderful story by Lillian …
“Once many years ago, Anne was playfully jumping on some stepping stones designed to look like flowers. Many years past and Anne was now sleeping peacefully and was dreaming. Meanwhile, there was a hidden dream cam in her brain recording her dream.
Anne’s dream got … ”
