"Wind Songs" Book Display

A few months ago I learned that an old friend of mine, Jack Goodman, who I knew when I lived in Jerome, Idaho, had published a book of poetry..."Wind Songs From Turtle's Back." We reconnected via email and Facebook and now my Three Lights Sanctuary has been blessed with a display of Jack's beautiful "Wind Songs!"

I am thrilled! "Wind Songs" completes my shop as the display is on the top shelf of my rack of books next to the "Velvet Throne" - another new addition to Three Lights Sanctuary - a red velvet couch offered to me by a customer a few weeks ago! Now customers, browsers, and friends have a special place to sit, relax, pick up a book, chat, or play with the Magic 8 Ball on the small table in front of the couch!

Many thanks to Jack Goodman for allowing me to offer "Wind Songs" in my shop. It's a gorgeous book of fabulous poems about nature and animals, domestic and wild. I learned that a second book is in progress and I can't wait to read it when it becomes available.

"Wicked Game"

My tickets for IL DIVO's June concert arrived yesterday! After listening to "Wicked Game," I am confident that I am in for the night of my life! There are a few "tear jerkers" in the mix..."Don't Cry For Me Argentina" for one, and "Come What May" from Moulin Rouge ~ It doesn't get better than this!
There's nothing quite like listening to IL DIVO at 6:00am ~ Voices of angels bouncing off the walls around me! Heaven...It's not "out there"'s where I am now ~

Here I go again - when will I know the truth from the world within?

When will I learn not to stay in low energy places among low energy faces?

Hey - when will you teach me where I belong?

When will you tell me where I go wrong?

Lessons are learned from within, not above - this I know. Michael is gone...everyone on that riverbank is gone - where did they all go? The city is obscured now. Why did everything change? The path has become one walks here but me. Tell me where the old way has gone so I can once again see my teacher and friend and home. Is there another place where I am to have a new home other than by the river? Or am I to be alone there I think not. I know someone will guide me to my new paradise. It's just not here anymore. Begin again or change completely. Maybe I am to start new but really new without the "old" in the way. Think...what is it I am supposed to do? I know what isn't working yet I stay in the boat that hardly stays afloat. The waterfall inspires me to write. Its loud rushing water sings to my soul. Maybe I have found my new river right outside my window...maybe I am in my new home away from home. So am I to spend time reflecting there and learning life's lessons? Something isn't right there. But what is it that I can change to make it right for me...and my purpose there? That is the question I am posing to you, Dear Ones. Talk to me. Teach me to know my soul's purpose.

Now Turkeys and Deer!

I feed the birds and squirrels and chipmunks on the table on our back deck and some spills through the cracks in the floor onto the ground below. One day months ago I saw that wild turkeys were in the field behind our fence in the back yard eating bugs...grazing. Well, it wasn't long before they came into the yard and started eating the seeds that were on the ground below the deck. I decided to start throwing cracked corn over the deck for them, and the small critters, and now they are here at least 5 days a week eating their corn! Once in a while I'll see one on the table, but when it leaves it ends up in one of the old dog's fenced yards and doesn't know how to get out, so 3 times I have had to start down the deck stairs to scare it away and it's only then that they fly out to freedom!

Recently we have had deer come close to the deck, too...they see the other wildlife here eating and want in on the action, so one photo is of a deer walking away from the deck after seeing me in the window.

Feeding animals is something I love doing - it warms my heart and soul...and their tummies!
