Infuse A Deeper Meaning


Although Memorial Day is celebrated by many as a three-day weekend from the norm with cookouts and family fun; others are proudly flying their flag in remembrance of those who sacrificed their lives defending this nation.

Did you know in December of 2000, Congress passed a law requiring Americans to pause at 3 p.m. their local time to honor the fallen? Although Congress had good intentions,  by 3 p.m., I’m sure many are engulfed in the various festivities planned for the day.

No matter how we celebrate, may be always honor and never forget the importance and true meaning behind the day.

Because patriotism should not be short-lived but rather a daily dedication.

Our every thought and action can infuse a deeper meaning of the red, white and blue.

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend, my friends!

Pursue and Catapult


Without a thought of what could possibly happen, I hit publish and my first blog post began its catapult into the blogosphere of the unknown.

Turn to the Sun received two ‘likes” and two comments. So, I continued to pursue the view from my small window from the world around me.

Whether two, ten or ten thousand…I am thankful for my blogging community who continues to support me and my world of words. 🙂 For you, I am thankful.

For me, writing is always a win because I always learn.

Without Qualms


As the evening glow lowered in the distance, their harsh words were silenced;

and all they could do was watch…

gifting a moment’s qualm to the sunset fade.
