I think about his words all of the time, but this phrase remains in the corners of my mind. (I cannot imagine why?)
There are so many words we remember from our parents and grandparents that never leave us, I can still hear their voices echoing in the recesses of my mind. The other day, I passed by my grandmothers old property, where a new house has been built, and another family lives inside. I looked at all of the Azalea bushes, Magnolia tree, etc..but in my mind her house was there, along with my memories.
The new owners cut down the Pecan Trees, but I could still see them standing tall and proud, doing their job for the world. I also saw myself on her back porch digging around fifty year old gardening tools.
On the back porch there was a screen door leading out to concrete steps-
I loved to sit on the porch with my grandmother at dusk, and watch the moon travel toward the sky. I could not wait for the sun to go down, so I asked her again and again when the moon would come, and she'd say, "Be patient, the man in the moon is busy, but he will be here soon."
Then, my grandmother would say, "Listen for the sound of crickets then you'll know the moon is on it's way." So I did- After which, the crickets began to chirp, and the moon slowly touched the dusty sky.
Sorry, I'm posting late in the day. Believe it or not, I'm having trouble with my new computer.
Which reminds me to thank all of you who are commenting on my posts. For some reason, I cannot reply, but I will figure it out soon. Thank you for your patience, and for stopping by A Nice Place In The Sun. I hope you enjoy this video, and the rest of the evening.
O.K here it is again...

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
