Happy Friday the 13th

Happy Friday the 13th. See Jet is ready to celebrate today too.




If you see a Black cat today or walk under a ladder know that a rainbow of good fortune is on the way.


I learned this from my friend Robert on this day to write down 13 wishes you like to come true. You can include other wishes for loved ones to on your wish list. A wish is a dream your heart makes. That is what Cinderella says. Wishes are beautiful. Always believe your wishes can come true. Who knows, right at this very moment, one of your wishes is on your way to you.




Have a Happy lucky wishes come to you Friday the 13th!

Romantic Vignette #18: A Rose in Winter




She still believed in love. Though at times her heart felt like snow had covered it. She still had girlish dreams of love now tempered with her experiences as a grown woman. Someday, what she long for would come. She smiled to herself. It might even come today as she looked out the window to the morning sun.

Romance

Happy Thursday, my friends. I am late with this post. Family obligations came up that I had to focus on. I am back with my word of the year. My word for 2017 is Romance. When I first got the word Romance, I asked for divine confirmation. Oh did I get it. I kept overhearing conversations on Romance and seeing the word everywhere in print, books, TV.



When I talk about Romance, I don't exclusively mean being in a romantic relationship. Romance for me is a way of looking at the world. Seeing the beauty and specialness in the ordinary. One of the dictionary meanings of Romance is a quality or feeling of mystery, excitement, and remoteness from everyday life.


For example, I love flowers especially roses. They give me a romantic and happy feeling. I decided this year, every week to set money aside for roses. In my local stop n shop, I can get roses for Five dollars!



If you ever meet me in person, I'll usually have a skirt on. I live in The Bronx, we can get cold weather down to zero degrees. I still wear my skirts. I bundle up with tights and warm boots. Why do I wear skirts? It gives me that romance feeling of being in another time and place. Like I'm walking the moors or going to the post from Thornfield Hall instead of shopping in my local dollar tree. I have seen how my previous words of Wild and Bloom have enriched my life deeply. I am open to see how Romance manifests in my life.




I invite you all to cultivate more Romance in your life. Have a wonderful Thursday, my friends.
