Reunion

Please play the music as you read

and

come back 

for a little while 

and sit with me

even if it's just 

for 

one last time.

Before autumn's cool breath

clears the path

toward a cold world

anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord

come back and connect

like we once did


anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord


 
anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord

and leave me a comment

to tell me

what marvelous things

have been going on in your life.

Forget the challenging things

but rather

tell me about how the 

Blessing of Cheerfulness

has shaped you

during these years that have 

passed by so sweetly.

Let's have a 



you and me.

Seasons


Nine years ago when I stepped into

my first blog post

I started the odyssey from which

all of us begin:

And like the seasons of the earth change

from one canvas to another

So did my vision.

My home was too small of a space


anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord

to fit into the trends

imprinted by business-minded influencers

way ahead of their ideas

and

who dazzled the blog world.

So instead,

Castles Crowns and Cottages

 developed

from the playful heights of poetic expression

where I met like-minded soul sisters

whose imaginations with wings tell a story.

We soared, together.

But



The calendar snatches from our clutch

that rare flower

that we think will bloom for us

forever.

Then

winter gardening begins. 

anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord



Fallen petals

become seeds of faith


that are buried under layers 

of years

where an invisible growth

plots to return 

with 

a new you 

that says




A safe and successful landing

 to all of you

wishing to make your dreams 

a reality 

as you learn what it really takes

to be an artist in the age of changing

seasons.
