Alicia Keys - If I Ain't Got You

You and Me

The fog is heavy
but I still can see
through the heart
there is you and me.

Skies are blue
behind the gray,
makes the day
feel new.

The fog is heavy
but I still can see
through the heart
there is you and me.

Soar

Experience is freedom,
to love and to feel,
to challenge each moment
without a barrier or shield.

I take this very moment
to soar beyond the blue
and dance upon the heavens
and interlock as lovers do.

2016

I can't believe we made it into another year. It took me a life time to find myself and sometimes I still have no clue what I am to leave behind in this world. But at we approach the new year with optimism  I find that my daughter Audrey is jumping on board with some new and exciting ideas. In the coming months you will see the exciting ideas we have planned for the new year. Expanding our line of products to include cosmetics. This will complete a women's regimen to bring her in the new year with a health and fresh new look.
Poetry ... my soul  on overtime. I am sometimes lost and occasionally connected. Life is so short and so precious and I find staying on track to be  complicated at times. Though winter is progressing rather quickly I still find the darkness like a sea of water a bit difficult to tread in.
I look to the future with optimism and know it will be a great year for Autumns and for our customers.

Happy New Year!

Four months into 2015

Another season and I find myself unprepared. Unfortunately the Ramp Festival was canceled for Spring 2015 so hopefully I will see everyone at the Frontier Festival in August.
The years have gone so fast that looking back feels like yesterday. I have tried to make sense of this journey, as they say " there is a moral to every story" I know that I have met many people and learned that everyone has a few hurdles to jump. But what is the meaning of our time on earth? Well for everyone it is a bit different. I hear people all the time say " If I could do it over again". Well we can't and I guess we all experience happiness and sadness.
I have made my share of choices and not also were they so great but I took a chance. On life, love and in the process stumbled, cried and dusted myself back off.

This season finds me in some of the usual places Boalsburg , the market and also some local events. I have never felt so alone on the journey as I do now. The children have grown and at times the motivational factor has teetered. Sometimes I don't know why I am here. That is when my customer calls and talks, orders and reminds me that we all are here on this quickly passing, unique to us journey.


Sharing with the heart,
touching with the soul.

Meaningless Words

Free to journey,
travel on,
far and near,
with loss of song.

Distance between us,
time of despair,
heart of sorrow,
hear to fear.

With Love In Your Heart

It has been said " that we each have one good story in us. " If life is a book I would have preferred to lollygag in the chapters that brought the most happiness and move on in the ones that were heavy at one point. But this is life as we teeter while trying to bring balance.
I can't help but think of freedom and the lack of it. Freedom, no matter what kind of freedom we confront , it indeed comes with a price. Freedom of expression and freedom of choice always seems to be complicated by extenuating circumstances. The facts which may be invisible to the eye creates barriers that occasionally are found to restrict the soul.
As I review my life and look at the moments where I danced upon the cloud, I find that I have to review the struggles that came before and after. I have always based decision making on the basis of right and wrong. Somehow there are many ways to review the same side of a coin. What seems right at the moment becomes a gray area. Right for whom or what?

There is angel in my corner
and I will tell you how I know,
he held my hand tightly and
refused to let it go.
 
Touched my heart
and whispered words of love,
there is an angel in my corner
sent from up above.
 
There are days when I am weary
and I don't know which way to go,
when I feel like giving up because
the moment seems to blow.
 
There is an angel in my corner
and I will tell you how I know,
he held my hand tightly and
refused to let it go.
 
Touched my heart
and whispered words of love,
there is an angel in my corner
sent from up above.
 
I don't pretend to understand or
know who wrote the script that
was written in the sand but as
the ocean erases it from the shore,
I am reminded of my angel who
I deeply adore.
 
There is an angel in my corner
and I will tell you how I know,
he held my hand tightly and
refused to let it go.
 
Touched my heart
and whispered words of love,
there is an angel in my corner
sent from up above.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The darkness of the night having nothing on me,
for I have your love and I have the dreams.
 
Sunshine in my morning, with every smile you
give , that brings to me the love that through me lives.
 
~
 
Need more of your love,
your warm embrace.
 
Need more laughter
to remove the heartache.
 
Need to script to the blue
a life of loving you.
 
Need to let you know
that my love for you
continues to grow.
~
 
 
 
We sometimes write the ending
before we have read the beginning.



I don't like turning pages gray,
crumbling before me makes
for a weary day.

I don't like the darkness that
rules the night, that is why
I need your laughter to
bring me light.

~
Idle lay this body,
while the mind runs away
and still I have to confront
what comes both night and day.

Tears upon my pillow
as I share my thoughts with you,
wondering through the chapters
of both gray and blue.

We can't erase it nor
change a chapter or two,
but we still can write
tomorrow to see our
heart through.

~
With love in your heart,
you'll see it what it can do,
bridge an ocean and paint
a sky blue.

With love in your heart,
the world will look anew,
as you wander over the
mountains and see the
sun come through.

With love in your heart,
no sadness will there be,
for everything makes sense
a fulfillment of the perfect
dream.

With love in your heart,
you'll make it through the day,
touching others in a angelic
kind of way.

With love in your heart,
freedom will find away
to dance upon the heavens
night and day.
