Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Back Online Part Time...

Br-er Groundhog gave us six more weeks of winter so Winter Break isn't over altogether but with February being a short month, Spring is already in sight! Just the thought of Spring is enough to bring sunshine on a cold wintry day, at least inside if not out...that is, within the heart and mind! So, bring the sunshine that is on the inside outside with some really big smiles and focus on the days ahead. If you are as impatient as I am, you cannot wait for those first buds to appear or specks of green to peek out from beneath the cold, cold ground. Each region of the nation will begin experiencing its own unique signs of Spring dear to the heart with both plants and animals sending forth harbingers that signal the annual demise of Ol' Man Winter!
 Mother Nature's Delights


Snowdrops from Winter sleep
Bring life to land that is dreary
  Mother Nature's paintbrush
Delightful sights for the winter-weary



Glory-of-the-Snow in the snow
Burst forth blue, white, even pink
Mother Nature's honor guard
Delightful indelible ink


Witch Hazel 'promise' shrubs
Bear warm, spicy scent
Mother Nature's wild catkins
Delightful descent


Not just the blossoms
Harmonize amongst greening trees
Mother Nature's balance
Delightful birds, butterflies and bees


High-lonesome pitch of spring
Emerge from wet patches of ground
Mother Nature's evening chorus
Delightful spring peepers' sound

 

Ladybugs under the leaves
Awaken to a taste of aphids
Mother Nature's tiny dots
Delightful as hungry little kids

 

Songs of an American Robin
Blend with a Woodpecker's drumming
Mother Nature's melodies
Delightful singing and humming



Deeper the Winter cold
Later these signs appear
Mother Nature's springtime
Delightful visions all clear
