Bio and Links
Bio Photo Summer is the time of greatest growth. The crops are coming into their fullness. Gardens are fragrant with flowers and fruit trees. Vegetables ripen ready become ingredients for a summer meal.

It is also a time of heat, bright sunshine and a tendency to seek shade, cool and quiet. I'm right in line with this direction preferring early morning walks along Shore Road to crowded and noisy street festivals later in the day.

Summer days invite us to cloud watch, find rainbows in the spray of the garden hose or gather flowers, vines and branches to dry and make into wreaths later. I find it the balancing point of the year where vacation means to vacate, to leave behind completely the hustle bustle of life. During one of these times of empty space life is anything but dull. If you listen carefully you will be inspired to move into the fullness and blossoming your own inner gifts.

When On A Summer's Morn
by William Henry Davies

When on a summer's morn I wake,
And open my two eyes,
Out to the clear, born-singing rills
My bird-like spirit flies.

To hear the Blackbird, Cuckoo, Thrush,
Or any bird in song;
And common leaves that hum all day
Without a throat or tongue.

And when Time strikes the hour for sleep,
Back in my room alone,
My heart has many a sweet bird's song --
And one that's all my own

Oh look, a chicken!
Thank you so much for your visits and kind words. I wish I had more time to spend on here but life seems to be running away with me. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers as well! I hope your summer has been good, and this fall will be great!

RE: Baby Alfonso 1902
Dearest EmilyAnn,
please take my warm thanks for your lovely and friendly words which I found now on my page!
I had not a single idea such apage exists, and so I did not know anybody could write there- I am so so sorry!
Thank you, you brought a huge joy to me.
ANd so many thanks for your lovely blessings, to the ones for my family, too! I only have a sister left, I am complete alone in the world, but I am sure your blessings reached my very beloved deceased ones in heaven.
My Mother and I used to visit churchyards since I was small, I had two graves, a drowned girl, which was a student of my Mother and had to die nine years old in 1949, and a small boy, which had died about three years old in the end of the ninetenth century. He had a picture on his stone (which I later found, broiken in two pieces, on the way, and was NOT allowed to take it with me. I had to left him there and never could visit and see him again, he had disappeared from the world. He had so sad dark eyes! )
I think this is the reason why I feel so 'at home' on churchyards.
Dear EMilyAnn, I hope so much you are very well, and so are all of your beloved ones and the ones which are close to your heart!
Please let me send very dear greetings, and be blessed, too, and so may your beloved ones be!
Have a great week! All my love from berlin, Germany!
Hugs, your Annette (Anita is my nickname :) )

Hi and Hugs
Dear EmilyAnn,
I am finally getting caught up on my messages - I do remember you answering me awhile back right after the San Bernardino attack, but I don't think I answered you - I had strep throat, then Gannon got mild pneumonia, then he had a surgery and so we have just been in the hospital or sleeping, it seems, for a month. I remember you telling me about your experiences re 9/11 - Emily, I completely believe your 'feeling' to quit your job when you did. Dad was very into that type of intuition - he said that it was the Indian in him -, and Mom also had dreams, hunches, etc. Well, we grew up around knowing that we weren't crackers if we had a hunch, whatever, and one of my personal stories is something I have written about here and there, and every word of it is true: I love planes and flying, always have, and cried like the wind when my neurologist said neither Gannon nor I could ever fly again...I dream about flying, and miss it so badly. fear of flight at all...anyhow, in 1979, I was supposed to fly out a specific day to a friend's, and I was as far as the terminal, standing in line for departure. Something literally was pushing on my shoulders - and no, I don't care who reads this on your page and laughs -, I could actually feel a pressure on my neck and shoulders. I stepped out of line to get a drink of water - this was long before common bottles of water being in tow -, and stood there, wondering. God knows had I known what would happen, of course I would have told everybody else to haul backside with me, but I didn't know what was wrong. I began to walk back toward passenger line up, and again felt, for lack of a better word, STOP. Even now, when I am typing this, I recall that feeling, E - I backed up, turned around and walked away. Yes, all this time later I think about what happened and could I have stopped it - I don't know. But I walked and walked the terminal, not looking back, not sure what I was feeling - I got to a row of seats and remember sinking into a chair. I felt as though I was almost asleep but flight took off, got overhead, banked into a spin and crashed - one of the first "caught on camera" events (anybody around my age or older will know exactly what event I am talking about), a couple taking photos caught it on film. Now...just like your 9/11 story: What if you had not quit your job, what if I had gotten on the plane? We don't know, because it wasn't meant to have those endings. I have been greatly affected by my event my entire life; I have never ignored dreams, hunches, etc. again. And I have had plenty, and they have given me guidance...I think, in my own opinion (which of course, with it and five dollars, you can get a cup of coffee - ha!), anyhow, I think that God, our angels, whatever is your belief, will let you know that you've got back up however possible, and yes, sometimes it's a 'feeling', a "Hey, listen up..."> But that's just my opinion. At any rate, how lucky we are that you listened to your hint, and what wonderful things you still have to accomplish before you. =) Gannon and I are always thinking of you and yours, and hope that you have a peaceful holiday weekend - will try to catch up on my visiting asap, I promise. Take Care - hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue
