meandering back into the room

i wandered off and left for awhile
i don't like showing up without direction
just because
those days should be over at this stage of my life
should be

full into fall
sometimes blustery, leaf ridden days of cool
or sunshine forced through layers of reds and golds
welcomed with ease and the barest bit of surprise
and a sense of reprieve

this is my and my sister's birth month
don't hold our sultry and deep Scorpio side against us
we're just loyal to a fault
and acerbic in tongue when on the wrong side of the bed
or issue
sensuous and sometimes serious
but way fun

the scarf slash stole is handknit by big sis me, for my little sis for her day of birth
sweet remembrances
and the bench
is where i have been mentally these days
reconsidering life
my craft (s)
and wondering what it all means
to be

love reading what my longtime friend and astrologer, Molly Hall has to say
and the great link to author Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat,Drink Pray, Love" that really rocked my boat yesterday

If you wouldn't mind - can you tell me why you come to visit my blog? what is it that makes a trip here worthwhile for you? i have had creator's/bloggers block - and i would love to know what i might be bringing to the table
for all of you

  1. You bring vivid colors and beautiful words to soothe my weary soul. Thanks for that.

  2. I love your words and photos! Your blog is a feast of colors and inspiration!! This post is no exception.

    My mother was a scorpio - and me a leo - what a combination. Challenging, intense and never a dull moment!

    Happy Birth Month!! Hugs, Silke

  3. That wooden bench is cute. I wouldn't mind having that scarf too...

  4. I visit because you inspire me. I love the way you think and write. And I always enjoy your photos!

  5. I love the exuberance, thoughtfulness and the sheer creativuty of your posts and pictures. And I love your more serious side too. You make me think, you make me smile. You have an honesty and directness which is rare, Lady P. It's intriguing to see the world through your eyes, and that's why I love to visit.

  6. Hmmm, I like that you are not the average, a bit wacky, somewhat off-centre. (That is a compliment.) I like to see what you create. I like to have a little peek into your life.

  7. I read this blog because it takes me off the beaten path of "traditional" bloggers in the blogosphere.

    You speak from your heart, make me smile each time I stop in....

  8. here my darling:
    reasons that bring me here.

    Your wit
    your creative word spinning as well as your knotting of creativity and yarn
    your colour and splash
    your eye, finding what it does and the angle it goes in (i'm amazed your not corssed eyed half the time :D )
    and ofcourse, your humor. Even when things suck footballs through hosepipes you choose to put the water on instead of panicking about improbability.

  9. Oh, Lady P...so many reasons! Your photos are always so full of color and joy, that it makes me feel inspired to find colorful, beautiful, texture-filled things in my own world to capture. Your words are so soft and romantic, and yet so very much filled with wisdom and truth.

    Completely understand the writers block, and hope, hope,hope that you've returned MUCH inspired!

    Much love from the blogosphere to YOU! :)


I love it when you talk to me = really, I'm not being the least bit funny!
