There is in all things a pattern that is part of our universe. It has symmetry, elegance, and grace – those qualities you find always in that which the true artist captures. You can find it in the turning of the seasons, in the way sand trails along a ridge, in the branch clusters of the creosote bush or the pattern of its leaves. We try to copy these patterns in our lives and our society, seeking the rhythms, the dances, the forms that comfort. Yet, it is possible to see peril in the finding of ultimate perfection… from Frank Herbert’s Dune
Has such an event ever existed? Has such a myth ever rang true? What dragons must a hero slay? What sacrifice must a maiden make? What river must be crossed? What valley must be traveled? What sweet serenade must be played? Before heart-stopping, pulse-pounding, chest-quivering love finally pours forth and breathes soul-stirring enchantment into one eternally-blissful, divinely-inspired…
Of all the snapshots I have, from vacations long gone, this is my favorite moment in time…Whenever I’m suffering some silent agony or held in the strong grip of an aching frustration, my mind always wanders back to this day…one of the most wonderous views I have ever experienced…with forever stretching out before me, admiring creation and all her glory…I love when the clouds do funny back flips across the contrasted skyline…I feel…alive, breathing, as if being drawn toward a cosmic threshold…So here I stand, posing, watching…waiting…for the morning song…the song of the morning…..
Shimmering eyes flutter open, as a golden dawn caresses golden skin
Arising mightier than the phoenix Heartbeat burning brighter than the pulsing orbs of the Pleiades
Curious infatuation draws a timid soul..ever onward..
Across sparkling moonbeams swimming over the midnight ocean Lifted upon the icy tail of a comet surnamed joy Passing the eternal etching of Perseus, guarding Andromeda with endless, vigilant devotion Pausing to admire the silvery sketch of Theseus, embracing Phaedra for all time
Foretelling hope Heralding peace Unbound love
Ever onward, beyond the limits of infinite twilight Journeying toward the spiraling edge of a spinning milky way
I open my eyes for the very first time, as the golden dawn caresses my golden skin..LL♥

I was up before sunrise this morning…I even out-raced the birds for a chance at witnessing the birth of dawn over the eastern horizon, lol. I could easily assume it was my nagging allergies that pulled me from a tangle of dreams, but I choose to believe it was more than a simple twitch from sneaky pollen that opened my eyes and kick-started a buoyant optimism deep within me…I haven’t felt joy this intense touch my heart in many waking days. I have no way of foretelling what will transpire five minutes from now, much less the entire day, yet I feel so happy and hopeful at this moment. I even found a great theme song to listen to…Fist pumping and air drums at 5 AM are an awesome way to start the day…at least in my humble opinion 🙂 This is a peace so beautiful and genuine that I wanted to share it with as many others as possible. Stranger or friend, I wish the same renewal of mind and spirit for you today as well..Smiles, hugs, kisses, laughs, and lots of love to all during this new day on planet Earth..LL♥
