As spring rain washes away winter remnants during this time of Covid our hearts turn toward the sun. Somehow the tilt of the earth is a little different. If we aren't careful we may lean too far and fall off.
As we continue to settle into accepting that we will be dealing with the corona virus for some time I came across this little piece of advice. Unfortunately I don’t have a name to give credit to. (The Batman image credit goes to Clipart Pin by Liran S)
Whatever you’re doing today, do it with all the confidence of a four-year-old in a Batman t-shirt.
Have a great day. Continue to be kind, to others and yourself.
Channeling Peter Pan!
Look for the extraordinary in the ordinary. Find wonder in your day 🙂

I’ve never thought much about being an elf.
Mischievous, clever, mysterious creatures.
Then I slept beneath a giant oak tree
and stories of the past came flooding back to me.
Answers to questions I’ve always had about myself.
Today I want to share a quote that made me smile. Have a great week!
“Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished:
if you are alive, it isn’t.” – Richard Bach
Cupid treads lightly
blending in among people.
No cherub cheeks and angel wings
for this god.
His slender build and youthful swagger,
Warned by Venus not to shoot his love arrows
his pride insists on moderation.
Teens are seen holding hands,
eyeing each other.
Wrapped in flighty arms of youthful desire.
inflamed hearts oblivious to their surroundings.
He smiles knowingly.
He sees harried mothers toting hollering tots,
haggard fathers lugging heavy brief cases.
He scans politicians, preachers,
homeless, and actors.
Cupid continues his search.
Waiting for the perfect specimen to sting
with his magical love bite,
wanting to make
his mother proud.
I want to say no
but I can’t
I am determined to resist this time
to walk away
go into the other room.
I give myself a pep talk and understand all the reasons
why I must say no.
Anything else I can do
but this – why is it so difficult?
Not this time!
I will be strong
I will be fierce
I know I can do this!
Yet when the chocolates
are placed before me
my will crumbles…
I eat the entire bowlful!
