    Subtle, I like the simple soft colors of pastel. They do not BEAT you over the head with their simplicity and loveliness. Sweet pastels for babies and older folks. Softness and roundness.

  • ShannonC commented on the post, dismissed 7 years, 7 months ago

    I dismissed you. Not from my life but from my presence at that time. I needed the space. I needed the room. I needed the moments back I wasted. Did I waste them? No, that’s my heart talking through pain. But, I […]

    It’s smile intoxicates and mesmerizes not simply my mind but my soul. The depth and truth in it. The secrets it holds. It has seen the movement of a thousands thousand ships and more lovers than that and it […]

    BLAST OFF!
    My grandfather and my mom worked for NASA. We have many photographs of Astronauts and pieces of fabric that visited, orbited and landed on the moon. I can’t think of BLAST OFF without thinking of those […]

  • ShannonC commented on the post, loss 7 years, 7 months ago

    Sometimes, I am at a loss. Loss for words, thoughts, emotions, you name it. I lose myself in blankness. Where I cubby-hole my life, I know not. Searching.

    It’s not medical
    It’s physical
    It’s not metaphorical
    It’s not historical
    It’s not romantic
    It’s not indifferent
    It simply is what it is

  • ShannonC commented on the post, gallery 7 years, 8 months ago

    Pictures line the wall of my gallery. My pictures, the wonderful ones, I want everyone to see. Not that they’d care for them all, but what fun to see my shots up there and discussed. I like those angles and […]

  • ShannonC commented on the post, curse 7 years, 8 months ago

    I don’t feel the curse placed upon me. I know it will emerge over time. In the moment of joy, my curse will arise and squash and the people in my world. It will drive me to the brink of destruction and carry me […]

    Providing shelter to those in need. We all seek shelter from the storms in our life. Who helps provide it tells us who is worthy of our love and friendships!

  • ShannonC commented on the post, track 7 years, 8 months ago

    I am on track. It seems at time, we fall off our track and need that bump back up. I think the times when we back up and take a good look at the rails, we can see some things so plainly. Other times the mist is […]

  • ShannonC commented on the post, flirt 7 years, 8 months ago

    I never thought until recently that I was a flirt. I don’t sashay or bat my eyes or any of those old ways. But, I do talk and I do listen. I can help draw out a person from their shell. If that is a flirt, […]

  • ShannonC commented on the post, clue 7 years, 8 months ago

    Sometimes a clue is lost amongst the triviality of the day. So many walk around without a clue, a hint, or inkling of where, what or who they are. Waking up to find yourself lost. Seek out the truth and get a clue.

  • ShannonC commented on the post, walls 7 years, 8 months ago

    They surround us physically, spiritually, metaphorically and in so many ways they keep us in more than keep others out. How does one knock on a wall that they can’t see, feel, or describe? where are your walls and […]

  • ShannonC commented on the post, orbit 7 years, 8 months ago

    I do not orbit around you. I will not. I am on my own orbital path in this life. Focus on that. I want to see where my path leads and not follow along blindly in yours. I am my own person and I will be that […]
