Drinking Alcohol taught me how to fly
Then it took away the sky....

These experiences:
people, places, things
weave in, out and about
during time on earth.
More than I expect, they influence
my attitude, outlook, behavior(s),
my state of being.
Upon termination of certain of these  
participations in --and of--life
I am sad at having to leave--
Full of JOY, to move on!

This now, is my last night in the city of lovely neighborhoods, an open-to-public aircraft carrier, historic downtown, Charleston, South Carolina. Jessie--a blogger--and her husband and his son have had me under their feet for three whole days and nights, fed me spiritually and physically. These days were filled with AA meetings--oh! did I mention, FOOD?--and a few "get-to-know-you" conversations including a Sunday morning church service with all the fixings.

And coffee, coffee, coffee morning, noon and night, thank YOU, God, and Jessie, wife of an amazing chef!

Just finished Bowlfuls of ice cream swimming in caramel and chocolate syrups, laced with pecans (in syrup, of course!). Moments like these I call 'spiritual', dear Sweet Peeps!

Truth is, I could live in this city for a long time before wanting to be somewhere else.

  2. It is a great town. Glad that you had a good visit! I missed you again. Ah well...one of these days.

  3. Oh, sweet nectar...caramel sauce. :) Glad you're having such a wonderful time and spreading your sunshine across the country. Travel safe, my friend.

  4. Even though it is 6:30 AM that Ice Cream sounds Great!

  5. Ice cream, the chocolate flavour, can always make my day bright.

    Send one to you.

    Have a good day.

  6. Have fun fun fun ... we'll see you again. I heard once that if someone leaves something behind its because they want to come back! :D lol

  7. Oh seriously! You are going to make Michelle Obama have a hissy fit with your ice cream! As you were. Happy trails and be safe. Tsup!

  8. " . . . ice cream swimming in caramel and chocolate syrups, laced with pecans . . ." sounds scrumptiously delightful. Glad that you enjoyed the place and everything about it. Places always evoke something within us . . . something which has been dormant.

    I wish you love, peace and many more beautiful places.

    Joy always,
