spring is such a nice time to move...

Dear friends, I have decided that we all need to pull up stakes & move-today preferably but I can wait until tomorrow, if need be. The good news is:I have found the perfect place for us all to move to: Marrakech. A blog I sometimes read has convinced me that this IS the place for all of us. See here if you require convincing.
I have found a very nice man in Marrakech who sells and renovates riads (What is a "riad" you might ask? According to Wikileaks Wikipedia a riad is a traditional Moroccan house. (Arabicرياض‎))
Simply looking at his blog you can tell he does a beautiful job. And since we are talking about beauty-which is after all, the reason for this move-there are even wonderful tile companies that make exquisite tiles-think how stunning our riads will be!
I realize this plan is rather sudden. I, myself, only just came up with the idea 1/2 hour ago. But something tells me that if we all sleep on it, this idea of mine will make so much more sense tomorrow morning. Think about it-courtyards, stunning interior vistas, birdsong to awaken you each morning and truly fresh orange juice straight from your own orange tree. What more can one ask for?


Shock.An earthquake.A Tsunami.

This morning we are waking to news of an earthquake in Japan and a Tsunami heading for many counties. I hope my dear friends are O.K. & I hope all will go as well as can be expected .
It looks as if, at the end of this day, there will be a tremendous amount of destruction, and a long recovery.
God bless.


As Saint Patrick's Day draws near...

I have always said:"Everyone is Irish on Saint Patrick's Day."
As the day itself draws near I have begun mulling over creative projects to do to celebrate the day. One I am researching involves the idea of Irish blessings.
You can mull over or meditate upon or allow this one to tickle your fancy:

May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.
