Each day is what we believe
It to be.
Friday the 13th
In my mind
Is a good luck day!
Find that positive.
Black cats are beautiful!
I will admit,
After I have spilled some,
I still throw salt over my
Join me in my journey
Of viewing the muted colors of
Fall 2017 in Vermont!
I didn’t see any
Kind Regards from VT – K
Of TheBlackwallBlog 10/2017.
Look up my love, look up,
I am here my love, look up
I’ll be forever waiting
With open arms and heart
Live life, my love,
Time ticks forward,
We love, suffer losses, yet somehow,
We carry on.
Grow stronger from the pain.
Carry that strong belief,
The universe is there for us
As we stroll along life’s path.
We cry in anguish.
We laugh wholeheartedly.
We love deeply, from within.
Kind Regards and # winning – K

I’ll admit it. It’s been a rough few weeks.
I haven’t been able to write.
No feelings of creativity or inspiration.
I’ve focused on survival,
It was all I could muster.
As I planted a smile on my face
and went to work each day.
Perhaps I was letting go,
Working on accepting what is.
Grief can come in all forms.
I haven’t seen or ever felt
there was a perfectly defined
set of rules,
for how you make it
While watching some Hulu last night
Along came a song…
Exactly what I needed,
not that I knew what I needed.
My mind, feet and soul started to dance.
Whatever was going on,
I am here now.
Happy Saturday to you!
REO SPEEDWAGON sang it loud and so did/do I.
That song, produces pictures of
a time of my life filled with glorious memories…
I heard it last night and discovered
it STILL delivers a special message, meaning
and triggers a quickened heart beat.
(August 4, 2017)
It sparks a fire in my soul!
(Originally released in 1978!)
Unbelievable! Or is it?
I have said it before and you will surely hear,
or read it from me again.
It’s the seemingly simple things in life,
that appear and help get you through.
No matter where you are,
Lounging on the couch,
Driving down the road…
Life, inspires you,
If you allow yourself to be open to suggestion.
Whether it be the infectious giggling of a child
in the grocery line behind you.
A new or old favorite song on the radio.
An unexpected happy ending of a movie,
A call from an old friend,
A sweet bird singing in the branches
Outside your window,
Or a neighborhood dog that suddenly appears
Just to say hello.
If it creates a spark of hope,
Quickens your heart rate,
Makes you feel good,
Grab onto it, embrace it!
Tap into the positive energy.
Allow it to help propel you forward.
To place one foot in front of the other,
On your journey of life.
Kind Regards and
feeling grateful for a new day – K

July 1st, WOWSER!!
In my head, excerpts from a CHICAGO song swirls
"Saturday, in the park, I think it was the 4th of July.... People dancing, people laughing A man selling ice cream Singing Italian songs Everybody is another Can you dig it (yes, I can) And I've been waiting such a long time For Saturday..."
HAVE A SILLY DAY!
Perhaps, today’s a good day
To relax, revel in your own joy
Of the now,
Just where you are at.
Take a sanity break
Running round in circles
Makes ya dizzy
And what’s the use of that?
Breathe deeply and enjoy
Sit back, and take a load off.
Celebrate your success,
For all that you have done
You put forth the grandest effort,
How far that you have come!
Kind Regards and celebrating “our” existence- K
I am reaching out for YOUR HELP!
Here is the background:
WordPress’ weekly photo
Challenge is here!
The subject is fun!
What is fun?
Do you remember?
In one split second,
Can you clearly define
Your current thoughts
Of having a good time?
Of past events of me laughing
Quickly flicker, fast forward
Like a mini slideshow thru my mind.
But truthfully, when was the last time
Such a carefree occurrence, did I find
Myself smack in the middle of
Without a whole lot of prep and
Trepidation, battling inner fear?
What a scary thought, I am thinking,
That, it’s no longer my norm,
At what point did my life go
From heartfelt enjoyment,
To some type of dark storm?
Another goal to aspire to,
Again, a chance at #winning!
Kind Regards and winning – K

Daily post Reach
history and genealogy of Mount Holly, VT.
From two settlements that lived 3 miles from each other,
not knowing the other existed,
to the start of the Crowley Cheese factory
to the findings of a Woolly Mammoth’s remains.
It truly is an interesting and worthwhile read.
Did you ever notice no matter where you go,
there is at least one in every crowd?
Or perhaps a moss heart ?
I was so excited when I saw this thru the camera
lens!! I was so sure I had found a relic from history!
When I walked around to the other side it was just a plain white rock!!
Nature is incredible!
Early morning deer tracks!!
They aren’t stupid, ya know.
Why go thru the thick brush
when some idiot human
built them a road? 🙂
For my flower and pink loving friends!
Singing “Sign, sign everywhere a sign….Do this don’t do that can’t ya read…”
That’s a mean curve!! Thought I was going back where I came from!
Old man in a tree?
Everyone loves a picture of a barn and a silo, right?
Wanna climb through with me??
There is always someone telling me where to go!!
I picked these especially for you!!
Kind Regards and thank you for your patience – K

Perception vs reality and fact… can change the WYSIWYG!
A perfect example:
Perception: See the picture below? It looks like a random shot. I’m sure you notice a touch of blue in the sky, topped with random white to gray cloud formations. You see an unkempt yard, tipped sawhorse, a tattered American flag with an old abandoned boat and a forgotten football. There is some type of water source in the background. Perhaps it is the ocean, a lake or large pond? When I posted it on FB someone vocalized how disgusted they felt about the tattered flag. They told me the flag was a disgrace and should be replaced. (People are just so darn sweet!!)
Just a basic everyday pic, or is it?
This next picture, was taken from a back deck on Block Island, RI, just 6 hours “before” Hurricane Sandy hit. “That” tattered American flag is literally being torn to shreds by the sheer force of the winds.
October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc and destruction up the East coast. My daughter was living on Block Island. About 6 hours before the hurricane hit, she gave me a quick call and told me she and her friends were headed out to see what was happening on other parts of the island. After the call, I heard nothing from her for over 12 hours!
Time felt like my enemy. No response to any text, calls went straight to voicemail. Total nothingness. Nervous wreck is too weak of a term to describe me that day.
I was off the wall and beyond frazzled. My brain was spinning, it went to places like , who do I know that has a helicopter that can get her OFF THAT ISLAND? Like THAT was even a possibility, right?
The 1st random shot, that I showed you was taken on October 30, 2012.
The day after Hurricane Sandy. Let’s look at it one more time.
My daughter took “both” pictures from her deck on Block Island, RI.
I received this shot at the same time my daughter called to say she was safe!
Every time I look at it, my mind sings… “and the flag was still there…!” It is a picture of the hope I hung onto and of prayers answered. – (Thank you, God!)
Who gives a rats a$$ whether the flag looks old and tattered! To me, it will remain one of the most beautiful representations of the Red, White and Blue I have ever seen.
Do you have a WYSIWYG story to share?
As is our norm, comments, quips, irony and witty remarks are always welcome!
Kind Regards and feeling grateful – K

WINNERS OF SHADOW SELFIE challenge #1
“Click quickly. Or I will pour this hot water upon you” Miracle girl Blog
“I told you I wanted to have a pyjama day!” – Watching the Daisies
it actually was K taking THE selfie picture while L.G.B. was taking a pic of me taking the pic… BUT one never knows...
Actually I related to both of the above captions!! It sure does look like someone is about to pour water on someone's head... on the other hand I looked like I had a headache and wanted a jammy day!!
Thank you for playing.. Until next time….;)
Kind Regards and keep smiling – K
This is what I call a Shadow Selfie….
Another favorite POSITIVE SOLUTION!
Personally, I think they are the best thing since sliced bread!!
CAPTION THE PIC:
Here are the rules to join – (Please do!)
BONUS “THINK POSITIVE” OPPORTUNITY:
3 reasons why K THINKS “Shadow selfies”
are BETTER than regular photos!
a) You can’t see it!
b) If the shadow does by slim chance show funny misplaced wisps of hair. There is zero proof that you were even there! ha!
2. If L.G.B. suddenly slams on the brakes and you are “wearing” your
DD coffee instead of “drinking” it , who’s going to know?? 😉
3. You ran out of the house and forgot to wear pants? (self explanatory!)
Please, leave a comment:
Why Shadow selfies are better than regular photos!!
I’ll add it to the list,

Daily post –Slowly
The orange pinkish hue of the sun
Slowly descends, down the horizon wall
Falling beyond the edge of the earth
Where things disappear into unknown regions
After sunset our earth succumbs to darkness
And not until another cloudless morning
Does our life light reappear and grow
As the sun rises, the rays
Increasingly bright as they creep up
Earths distant grayish blue wall
Our souls blossom with freedom
As the darkenss relinquishes
It’s hold and once again
We are allowed to
continue upon our way.
