  4. I am with you and have been absent as I turn within these days.....I believe you are correct about words....our voices need to keep going. They will be the way to turn us from the ugliness that has taken hold. It can be reversed. Much love to you for your post. I am healing a shoulder still but will be back myself soon!

  6. Beautiful words Susan, we all feel it, all corners of the globe. What the world needs is for people to rise above it with love & kindness. Always love your posts.x

    1. Thank you, dear heart. I feel that so many are trying to do that, to step away from the ugly and to show kindness and to keep open hearts and spread love around. It sure is going to take a lot of that now and in the future. What the world needs now ~

  8. quiet is good, and quiet is necessary for some of us to recharge. what is going on in our country is astonishing, and sadly not for the better. the ugliness that has been unleashed I worry won't go quietly after the vote - something like putting a genie back in her bottle. I hope we can all find peace after next week

    1. Yes, we feel the same way, relief that it will soon be over but knowing it won't be over. My problem has been finding that quiet that I need so much in a place full of noise. For a long while I have been filtering out all I can, not watching news and not listening to any talking and stopping Larry when he starts to share what he is reading online.
      I will hope along with you about finding that peace ... thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  9. It seems like the clock has been set back in this country...I am not sure how recovery will take place.
    Quiet is necessary. But then you already knew that.
    But your words here are timely, as I have been deciding to continue with the blog or rely on Instagram/FB to get my words and photos out there. But there is something about blogs that keep pulling me back. Maybe because it is a bigger canvas to show or speak or both.

    1. No idea either how any recovery is going to happen, at least we are close to the end of this first part of insanity.
      And not being on Instagram myself I guess I don't know what I'm missing but it sure seems to be the popular place now. But I do know that I miss my blog when too much time goes by, guess it's kind of like my journal ... wherever we go I feel positive we'll always keep up with each other.

  10. Susan, thank you for this beautiful post. I'm always encouraged when I see that I am not alone with my feelings and thoughts. I hope that this nightmare is still over, but I'm afraid it won't and I also share your thoughts whether we have crossed a line from which it is extremely difficult to get back.
    For the moment I'm going with kindness...

  11. Oh, sweet woman, thank you for going with kindness. I'm so tired of losing sleep over the future of our country, our world. I'm glad good people are always close by.
