My Deepest Apologies...

... for having neglected you all for so long.

I could go on and on about everything that has been taking place in my life that has been the reasons why I pushed blogging aside for a few weeks; but I won't.  Some of it is quite boring, some of it I don't particularly want on the internet.  :)

So, I will just say, I missed you all!!!!!!  And I am very glad to be back!  I'm absolutely delighted to be posting again.  I am going to do my best to catch up with all you lovely people's blogs over the next few weeks.  I think I have about 3 months worth of posts to catch up on....  :)

Just for an idea of what will be coming up on my blog... there will be several tag posts.  I think I have a backlog of tags from October 2012 - meaning somewhere in the vicinity of 12 tags to do.  *hangs head that it has gotten to be so many.*  And I do have some movie reviews in draft.  And as usual, several posts on my writing.  As well as all the usual quote, poem and music of the week posts.

So stay tuned, and I'm SO glad to be back!

Keep Calm and Pin Away!

Yes, people, I have joined the ranks of those who love Pinterest.  And I might be mildly addicted to it.  (Only mildly because I know I'd rather watch a BBC show than hang out on Pinterest, so the addiction can't be too bad.  Yet.)  :D

HERE is the link to my Pinterest profile.  I'm am very much looking forward to filling my storyboards and other boards.  I have begun finding all you wonderful Blogger friends on there and I love looking at all your fun boards!

Keep Calm and Pin Away!

Quote of the Week: Nobility

One of my favorite quotes from BBC's Merlin.

"Nobility is defined by what you do, and not by who you are."

Quote of the Week: Leave the Beaten Track

Leave the beaten track behind occasionally and dive into the woods.  Every time you do you will be certain to find something you have never seen before.
Alexander Graham Bell

I need to remember this and put it into practice more than I do now.

Poem of the Week: Frost–Flowers

I found this the other day and was instantly captivated by the beautiful word imagery.

Pamela S. Vining

 Over my window in pencillings white,
Stealthily traced in the silence of night—
Traced with a pencil as viewless as air,
By an artist unseen, when the star-beams were fair,
Came wonderful pictures, so life-like and true
That I'm filled with amaze as the marvel I view.

    Like, and yet unlike the things I have seen,—
Feathery ferns in the forest-depths green,
Delicate mosses that hide from the light,
Snow-drops, and lilies, and hyacinths white,
Fringes, and feathers, and half-opened flowers,
Closely-twined branches of dim, cedar bowers—
Strange, that one hand should so deftly combine
Such numberless charms in so quaint a design!

    O wondrous creations of silence and night!
I watch as ye fade in the clear morning light,—
As ye melt into tear-drops and trickle away
From the keen, searching eyes of inquisitive Day.
While I gaze ye are gone, and I see you depart
With a wistful regret lying deep in my heart,—
A longing for something that will not decay,
Or melt like these frost-flowers in tear-drops away,—
A passionate yearning of heart for that shore
Where beauty unfading shall last evermore;
Nor, e'en as we gaze, from our vision be lost
Like the beautiful things that are pencilled in frost!

Have a great weekend!
