pink-tipped petals spread

of warm wind and light

I love the way each blossom decides when to stretch out her petals, her arms and reach for the light.

Good to find you here again, MB. There is something about the essence of apple blossom that this captures perfectly.

And I am so sorry to read about the events that prompted the previous post. From the way I read it you handled the situation well.

I'm glad you resolved the plagerism trouble. We give our artfulness to everyone, and some with confused motives violate with disrespect. Take care, be well, and know that your boundaries are being tested only because you prefer to risk sharing.

Ah--this appears just as my apple tree is spreading an intoxicating fragrance through my yard...for the first time in its young life!
This is truly a magical springtime this year...and so lovely to see your photo, that captures its essence!

Wishing you strength to find peace after your terribly violating experience--I think compassion can sometimes be the only way to defuse and get past anger! I'm so glad you did not need to have a drawn-out fight; it's so scary to realize how vulnerable we can be to unscrupulous people...

I keep messing up and loosing my message here! such a silly girl,
thanks for poping in on me. I left a mesage the other day but I dont see it. I think I got the word verification wrong and did not notice.

Hope you have a great week!
