Anything is Possible!

With Love, Hope, and Perseverance


Being Chased by Clowns

The clock it ticking!

Clowns are chasing me down.

NOT the scary clowns –

The silly, beautiful ones:

Slippery otters

Frolicking puppies

Dancing Sunflowers

Babies laughing

Toddlers chasing bubbles…

Closer and Closer they come.

It’s like Hafiz said,

“Ever since Happiness heard your name,

It has been running through the streets trying to find you.”

Here I am,

Catch me if you can!


I have two posts today. Because it’s my BIRTHDAY! And I can do what I want!

I hope you’ll go see my other post. It’s short. I have things to do, places to go, and people to see!


Today’s Stream of Consciousness prompt was, “clo-” brought to you by Linda Hill!

If you’d like to join in the Saturday SOC prompt and post, visit Linda’s blog:

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your started.

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!


OMG. I’m 60!

Yep. I have the same birthday as Frank Sinatra. And almost the same birth year. I’d only have to change one number!

Mr. Sinatra was born December 12, 1915.  I was born in 1955.

I’m guessing this picture was taken in 1958:

But what’s in a year when you’re young at heart?

Fairy tales really can come true. Like marrying your high school sweetheart 40 years later!

Now, let’s see what else comes true!
