I am a Flower Smeller


I was so delighted to open my email notifications the other day to see that I had been awarded a 'Flower Smellers ' award from the wonderful people at Go! Smell the Flowers. This amazing group of people continue to inspire all of us to take some time out for ourselves and others to just stop what we are doing in this busy hustle bustle life and see the beauty that surrounds us in every moment.

As a recipient of this award I am now able to nominate 5 other 'Flower Smellers' who will also be awarded this badge.
Here are my choices...I hope you will spend a moment and go have a look at these amazing people!

* Homemade Rainbows I love this blog not only because we share a name but because of the beautiful view of life that shines through in every post she writes!
*Vineyard Painter This blog always leaves me feeling peaceful with beautifully imagery and thoughtful posts!
* check out Xanthe in Marrakesh...her beautiful photographs of this exotic place always transport me...
* Journey Back to the Wild This blog touches your heart with the plight of injured wildlife.
* Vision Your Dreams This lady is a master at 'Flower Smelling'.

And here is a flower for you!

What a beautiful masthead! And I am sorry for the scare on the age thing. Imagine how I was feeling. When I crunched the numbers again I felt a wonderful relief.
I think this is a lovely blog.
Today we drove out of the city because there was a terrible inversion and my wife said,
"I wonder what the sky looked like in the 1400's?"
It made me stop and think.
I think colour therapy has alot to offer. They are using it more often in building design and architecture. Particularly in hospitals and schools and the like. Take care and stop by again.

A person after my own heart! A Color Therapist!! Color IS therapy for a sad or lonely soul. Nothing brightens the spirit more than a splash of color, whether from a flower, a painting, or a sunset, any color is soothing to the soul.

I am intensely drawn to color, and it drives me to create bright, vibrant paintings over and over again. I could never tire of experimenting with different colors and striving for the ultimate expression of color with my art.

Thank you so much for posting on my blog which has brought me to your blog, wonderful!

Greetings, earthling! Need summore new-fangled-thots N ideers? Look no firdr, brudda. Can't stay long. Done gotta git, Paw... yet, if Im a sower, we plant the Seed; if Im an artist, we RITE the Word:

Would U please help a plethora of King Size, wildchild, rawkuss poetry/wordz which are lookin 4 a home in thy novelty?? Thx. Whew. They're pretty insane. They're bereft of reason. Oi! Blimey! They're bloody PINK spiders!!

Gotta lotta gobba shrewd, surreal, supersonic, sardonic satires, sassy N savvy elixers N electronic elegance (...and palpable nuance) on our YOUTHwitheTRUTH blogs. Wannum? Have'm. N'joym. Gettm outta my hair!!!

How mucha wanna betcha our sugar-high-mojo, pleasure-beyond-measure, fuse-blowin-exploits R a copious madhouse of one lavish bookay D.O.A.? Our proFUSE NRGod who leads U.S. to explosive fairy-tales in the 'one-stop-shop' symphony Upstairs? God's the BigDude, the Owner of ElysianFields, the Grand Prize, the Austere Overdrive, NoPurchaseNecessary: our bombastic tenaCITY on a Hill which'll plant the Seeds 4u2 grow-up to new N greater heights!! Mama mia! Thatsa good pasta!!

CAUTION: our 22ish, avant-guard, accurately-atrocious, offa-the-reservation-like-Jimmy-Hoffa, metal breadcrumms R sooo out-of-order, toots, they're an intimate wealth of bottomless sophistication. And dats da lethal fak, Jak. Go ahead. Sue me. Yawn. But, yet, here's the perennial KOO D'TAH: who else has actually SEEN the Great Beyond in spirit & lived to tella youse bout the bionic, bloated, brevity-like-earth we're living on?? Yes, earthling, I had an NDE, almost salivating4salvation. So gain altitude, never attitude: death has no intrinsick favorites.

If Mr. abSUREditty's an ultra-great-reward, and not everyone enters, Q: why is it an excruciating deluge of epic-.357-caliber where the quality's a limitless bulldozer plowin, pushin-your-power-cord with eternal goodies? A: the Prize-A+-TheEnd just gives U.S. moe-curley-graphix 2 VitSee: an explosion-of-extravagance which few R asking 4 anymore! Grrr. They're too concerned withe grotesque sanity of ambivilant piss-ants which swiftly crawl like lemmings to their scorecard destruction. C'est la guerre.

THANK GAWWWD!!! the Don has the ebullient BAWLS!!! to do the Manifest Destiny!!! To lead U.S. forward to the White House Upstairs with his SQUARES!!!

So, break-free, earthling; be like a contraversial outgrowth of incredibly-intoxicating-effusiveness in your zeitgeist to give the ultimate, stunning, backknuckle potency: Wiseabove. Wanna join this useFULL idiot Upstairs 4 the most zany, kooky, X-acto-knife antidotes? Extremely exquisite, explicit endorphins in abundance? Puh-lenty of pulverizingly-tantalizing psychopathic psychosomatics with eXtras? i2i-kick-velocity's-ass-ultra-maximum-rocket-fuel-party-hardy at my pad ya ever encountered without d'New Joisey accent 4 an eternal slew of precarious, magnanimous & primeval absurdities indelibly etched in the granite corridors of eternity with a total-barrage-of-melt-in-thy-mouth 'depth-of-undenial'???

Make Your Choice  -SAW
...cuzz nobody gitts outta here alive, earthling.
