A stop light becomes an opportunity to pause and drink in the beauty.

We were all ready to go to EarthDance Lake Worth yesterday, then the skies opened up. It rained long and hard, so we went and had a nice leisurely dinner at Sushi Simon instead.

Lucy was back from her visit to China (we missed her the last few dinners we had there)… we got to catch up with her and hear about her trip. And of course she tried one of her new cocktail recipes on us ;)

This was the view that greeted us on the way home: The sun was just setting, creating a dramatic visual display for all as we headed west. A perfect evening.

A glorious bloom, up close and personal.

Did you know that some species of hibiscus are cultivated in India for their fiber, which is used as a substitute for hemp?
(I didn’t either!)

I think I’ll just enjoy this one for its beauty.

A job with a view... Luna Jade ~ BeautySuspended.com

A pretty nice way to spend your days...

The Lifeguard Station right by the Dune Deck Cafe at Lake Worth beach…
now that’s a job with perks.

Shot from the Dune Deck Cafe as I enjoyed my birthday breakfast… Lobster Eggs Benedict with a side of Nova.
(yup, it was pretty decadent ;)

Yummy food… heavenly view.

Gone…

Visceral loss...

Gone

words by Luna

I awoke to find you Gone.

Lying there
my ears straining for just one sound
just one small sign of your presence

but there was none.

I could feel the silence like a viscid web
entangling my mind and limbs
threatening to bind me to this spot
this state
this middle dimension
between what was and what now must be.

If I just lie here and never move
maybe I can hold myself suspended in time…

Never having to face the emptiness.
Never turning to see the vacant place beside me.
Never feeling the unceasing pain.
Never needing to greet the new day alone.

Better yet,
to fall back into the comforting arms
of perpetual, nepenthean slumber…
lost in the forever dream
of the sweet memories of yesterday.

But my arrested existence could never bring back yours.

So I rise
and move through my days,
feeling your absence keenly…
like the ever-present phantom ache
of a missing limb.

Soaring in tandem...

Let’s stay adrift within this
flight of fantasy
We’re here inhaling heaven,
right where we should be.
