Within Us

Just came from angelofmercy5's last post You Have Given Me Wings.

It caught me at a moment and a tear trickled as my heart felt the love and compassion from this remarkable lady.

I have had these moments in the past. Moments when I wished.

I live close to a beach on the Pacific Ocean that is void of crowds, trash (or garbage if you will), or any other uncomfortable entities that cloud the gift of a place with peace and tranquility.

I have often thought of my friends here - and as I want to name each - you ALL know who you are.

I dream of a day we are all gathered together on this beach - watching the waves roll in - talking - laughing - eating tasty food (as the Lord expresses it - He does LOVE a bit of tasty food - as the scriptures read) - sharing a pint of grog - holding each other in thought and spirit - and sharing from our hearts the love we release.

All of us together as we sit in the sand - campfire dancing near - and the sun - large enough to fill half the horizon - settles into the sea.

And by night - as the fire stays lit with sparks drifting on thermals of warm air - we sit around it - sharing drinks and passing a pipe. And in the midst of it all I can feel the love. I hear the songs, the stories, the laughter, and - yes - I also embrace the tears. I am blessed.

AND - I hope even TakethemoneyandRUN is there. For if he is not - the sanity that may prevail will be a cloud in the night that covers the moon. (though we all know his planet is elsewhere )

I LOVE YOU people!!!! - my friends of cyperspace.

There has been question lately about the REALITY of blogland. I choose not to debate this - but, to only embrace what is before me.

LUV to you ALL - fort

Fort.....what a beautiful post! And wouldn't that be wonderful to all be gathered there together. I can see the beautiful smiles and eyes in the firelight....and the hugs and hand holding. Just to hug some people from here.....like you....would be such a blessing. Thank you for being who you are and for sharing yourself with us. There are some people on here that I would never question their "reality"....and you are certainly one of them.

    Quoting SweetMysterie:
    I prefer not to get mixed up in the reality debate either. I take most of it with a grain of salt, though know what my own reality of blogland is... a mixture of people from across the globe communicating... sharing laughter as well as heartache. Some of whom are strangers, some familiar names or faces (or other body parts ), some passing acquaintances, and still others caring, compassionate friends. Blogland is what each of us makes of it, what we give and take here, and hopefully it all balances out. Rather than debate the reality of others, I'll remain 'cautiously optimistic' about those I choose to interact with and, as you say, "embrace what is before me."

    ~myst~
Love ya myst - as in ALL life - it IS how we choose to perceive it and what we make it. For some of us it is that little bit extra - like a spice that helps to enhance the flavor of life.

Can I sit next to you Heaven - hold your hand as I slip your soft finger between my lips and taste reminisce of marshmallow once melted there. And under the sand our toes they do play. Then perhaps we slip into the night.

Angel - I think that once my arms held you close - it would be difficult to let go. But I would manage - with respect. Luv, fort

    Amen...people need to accept the gifts they are given....now I'm thinking of the beach again.....sending warm pup hugs to you, my friend
Receiving warm pup hugs as I hold you from behind and we stand at waters edge, surrounded by friends - listening quietly for the sizzle as the sun touches the sea.

    Quoting TakethemoneyRUN:
    I'll be there as soon as I come to present time. I am having some troubles with my time machine at the moment. I just eliminated some dinosaurs. Until I return I will send you 18 green goats.
The green goats will be a nice gift, but please leave the dinosaurs behind. Welllll - except maybe a Herbivorous like a Brontosaurus and a Triceratops - they would be welcome.

I send not a hug - but a kiss - as our lips touch the softness before us - and the stars above wink at what is felt between those who hold within their heart.
