    Drowning in Water,But finding Myself safe on the Beach. 

    Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Now forget the song, and turn that line into the title or inspiration for your post.

    So the words of this song called “Drown” impressed me as I turned on my music player.  I had gone to the inspire me link under ‘new post”  on here to get me moving on what to post today.

    Walking the beach 4 A.M. Listening to the waves as they crash upon the sand. It’s just a black sea, the moonlight, and me It’s sink or swim Drowning within you Somebody rescue me Cause I”m going against the stream……

    This reminded me of the darkness and horror of my depression life, I have dealt with since I was a teenager. I still struggle with it, but though I do go against the stream many days, I have found myself at the top of the ladder and looking over the great breaking of the water behind me from the dam’s tip.

    Sometimes it is hard to admit. Sometimes it is hard to even blog or go on any social sites and show my face. Got out in public. But then there is the view…… Of HOPE

    Hard to talk about, and so painful to discuss the black soul of hopelessness, like drowning, not being able to breath until the light breaks through.

    I had wanted to post on my mental anguishes,  once and awhile and this song’s words  just fit to lead into that.


    At the beach prior to the falling under the water.


    Beach not nears as bright.


    It Descends


    Giving up.




    Breath and colors flood my life.

    I sure miss blogging. I ended up in the hospital and put on steroids. Finally home, but still feel terrible from all the medication to keep me alive. Bad lung infections.I hate missing out on life as you are so sick you are wishing death. May is my favorite month and I missed it. It slowly moved past while my eyes were closed in unreality.

    If the picture fits. 

    So call it bad luck, Murphy’s Law, When it rains; it pours, If anything else can go wrong it will and the one I have chosen to come up with in my own humble brain:  “The fox tail in the fur is going to dig in deeper. and there is nothing you can do to stop it.”  Another one I like is: “If you think you were missed, quit thinking.”


    Balloons do not help.

    Just in case anyone did notice I have not been on my blog and posting for a week or so,-which I am in doubt of. lol. Hence,  I have come up with: “Hang onto the doubts, they are usually a certainty.”

    Anyway I have been extremely sick with pneumonia., so I do have an excuse.( I will not say the “excuse adage” for those waiting with baited breath for that one.)

    So if the pictures fits show them. These 3 fit me better than peanut butter and jelly.





    Just another day-dread.


    I resemble misery and feel like it too.

    From Above- Weekly Word Press Photo Challenge 

    From Above- Weekly Word Press Photo Challenge

    While out walking I discovered what I call my “Secret Garden.” It is contained in a strip down the side of one of my rural gravel roads, I am able to get to when exercising and getting out in the fresh air. I am thinking this used to be a garden at a house that was torn down when they put a pasture in beyond it; Someone bought the land. There are a lot of neat plants there and this one could be a weed, but I still find them lovely. If anyone knows what this plant is, tell me? It is soft and has a nice red trim on the leaves as you can see. There are amazing neglected wild flowers along this strip also. They are wild now, but as I stated, I think they were planted in a domestic setting in the past.

    I took this photo standing above and straight over this lovely plant.

        Thanks for visiting and your comment. I have no idea what plant it is? I am hoping someone can tell me that? Where I live there are so many different plants I have no idea what they are. distinct and pretty.

        It really does. I wish I knew what it is and if it could be eaten.

    Flowers on Fabric

    I posted this since a sweater I would term “Most beautiful” with flowers on it is more suitable to the weather than the garden today is. So cold, memories of November.
