Wordless Wednesday- Tell Us A Story

Wordless Wednesday  "WW is a simple blog post featuring a photo which conveys a message that speaks for itself without using words."  

My introduction was written by Sandee of Comedy plus, where you can also find the link to add to your post.

A lot of people are participating in WW today, so come join in the fun. Wordless Wednesday is one of my favorite memes because like a writer paints a picture using imagery, photographs, cartoons, and paintings also tell us stories. All art should stir our souls, like Franz Kafka said about books,  "A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."  I believe his phrase is a great metaphor for all art and WW gives us the opportunity to crack the ice inside us, whether it brings forth laughter, memories, etc...it's up to our own interpretation.  So, again, post a photo, that tells us a story or calls forth an emotional response.

Thank you, for visiting A Nice Place In The Sun and if it's your first time here, I have plenty of posts on my sidebar, that is, if you are looking for something to read this afternoon.

Many thanks to Sandee of Comedy Plus and WW Wednesday for introducing me to this great meme.

Have a great day and I hope you find your pot or heart of gold. ;)

And follow your bliss!

Sorry I'm so late responding but we're on the boat and things are more difficult when we're on the boat. We blog in the morning and then are done for the rest of the day. It's a good thing.

I can get lost in a good book and I do very often. I've read piles and plies of books this year. It's a wonderful escape.

Have a fabulous day and weekend honey. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Simon. ♥♥♥

Motherhood- Courage

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.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

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

Written for Ann

Catch your dreams

Catch your dreams


Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
