Into light

The journey moved long into the night,

Past the stars and directional beacons

We navigated blindly yet not quite so,

Into the realm of a place called “new.”

It wasn’t on the map that led us forward

And we leaned into the twisting turning curves,

The harbingers of wrecks that could be found by those

Hurrying to the next destination,

Yet we had a calm between the two tin vessels,

Moving together in tandem,

Navigating the poles and emptiness that stood off to the side,

Ready and waiting to drag us in,

Almost like a rip-tide effect

And just as scary,

Except we knew where the path was,

And we followed the detours like tired sailers pushed into new currents,

Tossed by the winds and left ragged

Yet still content with the light that trickled through to find us,

And we kept on moving,

Kept on keeping on I think the song said,

And at the end a bright red sign

Turn here now to get back

To the place you left off,

Just a speed bump in the road,

Around a piece of real estate now covered in a mud slide

And I spoke through little boxes to you,

Feeling the heart rate return to a sense of normalcy

And the little yellow sponge smiling on the dashboard spoke in my thoughts,

It’s all gonna be alright…laughing in joy on his way

To a new day in paradise,

A caravan of tired souls ready to hang a sign,

Home at last,


Home at last.

Hello my friends, internet goes live Friday and life shall resume its new pace of peace and normalcy. Oh how I have missed you all, six hundred emails stocked up waiting to be read and wow, made it thirteen hundred miles in one piece, a tornado just past our first night stay in Cincinatti a town away, prayers to that towns folks and so many blessings that we made it. Sorry for my absence, eager to return and loving you all who stuck by us through our lapse in life as we knew it. Peace and blessings, Kim💜 Life is truly magical⭐️🌟✨🦄

A song of Blue

Happy moments come filtering in,

Transpiring after dreams find their way

Into the heart of new days,

Blue days spent watching,


Eager for a day with a sun glinting off of the pond.

They will come to find

Days of bliss and solitude,

A place where many have come before,

Wooden glades where they ran before you came,

But they remain in hearts now set adrift into new sunsets,

And blue will lay claim to this spot,

Watching and waiting

For them to return from a long day gone,

Smiling as only they tend to do,

Content to hold down the fort.

Staking his claim on the woodland foes,

Laying by hearth at a masters feet

And curling by the bed,

Protecting the sleep to ensure a future of love,

Of happy dreams

Of home at last.

This post is to herald a new family in our old homestead, wishing a thousand blessings of many walks, days by the solitude of the pond, and too many memories to count.

Sara and Dustin, I wish you the joys and good days that we have found there in the tree laden bliss, and for Blue here sitting by the window watching and keeping guard, you have big paws to fill and I know you will excel as only a beautiful dog could do. Peace and blessings in your new home and cheers to a future of amazing days of dreams coming true.
