It’s that time again for the April A to Z Blog Challenge. I’ve done this one for quite a few years, and it’s always fun.

This time I decided to go with the miscellaneous type posts, which some days will be whatever I want, and other days will be a resurrection of my older posts that pretty much no one or very few ever saw.

So, here we go with Letter G …

I AM THE GHOST BESIDE YOU

Why can’t you see me?

I never planned on being a Ghost…a Ghost of myself.

Flitting around you, I beg for attention…validation…

I am me…a Soul in transition…pain…

Why won’t you see me? I am here beside you.

You look right through me…like I’m not real.

It’s so hard…so hard…I want to be heard.

I need to know you still think of me…still love me.

I am transformed…not gone, not forgotten, not dismissed or diminished as

A strange sound, a confusing coincident of you know-not-what.

I don’t mean to scare you. Please feel no fear. I need your warmth…your love.

I ache to be near you.

Am I the cold chill you feel when I reach out to touch you?

Yes, it’s me.

Am I the wisp of mist you think you see, from the corner of your eye?

Yes, it’s me

Am I the moaning sound you think is the wind through the cracks?

Yes, it’s me.

I’m screaming out to you. I have been here all along.

I have not forgotten you. I give you signs…

Give me a sign that you still care…that you recognize that sudden small flash of memory.

Yes, it’s me, recognizing you in that moment.

I had to leave this life, this mortal realm.

It wasn’t my choice, you see. Please believe me…believe in me,

As I am still here with you…as I am.

I live in your heart, in your thoughts…I am still me, loving you, with all my Soul.

Am I the silence, when you sense that you’re being watched…yes, it’s me…I am near.

Yes, it’s me…still loving you with all my Soul…I am me…

I am the Ghost beside you…

Finally Finished This Thing

Standard

Finally Finished This Thing

***

Well, I finally finished painting this. It’s called a wooden spinner. I figured I should get it done, seeing how my daughter gave it to me for Christmas last year. It was fun to do, and took longer than I thought it would.

I first had to take it all apart to paint the individual wooden sticks, then let them dry. I thought I kept them in order, but must not have. It took awhile to get them arranged back like they needed to go. I think it turned out okay. 🙂

Photos show:

  • box the Wooden Spinner came in
  • Flat spinner after painting red, white, and blue (with yellow end parts)
  • Another view
  • Finished spinner arranged in a spiral, and hung by the window

This is a month of blue! It’s a fun challenge created by Becky of “The Life of B”, and each day we show something blue. The only rule beside blue, is that the photo MUST be SQUARE!

As an added bonus, I’ve found songs with blue in the title or lyrics. 🙂

Thanks, Becky!

This is a painting I did a long time ago on a small canvas. I did look at a picture to sketch in the outlines, then filled in the details with acrylic paint.

It is a little brown and white puppy, maybe a terrier, who is sitting in the back pocket of a pair of blue jeans.

This is a painting I did a long time ago. I did look at picture I saw in a magazine when I sketched the outline of the things in the painting, Then I filled in with acrylic paint. It is on a round wood framed canvas.

It shows a German Shepherd puppy, brown & white. He is holding handcuffs in his mouth. Looks like he is in a child’s playroom, as there is a bed, partially shown, a toy black police car (the word police in red), a red toy box, and some wooden blocks.

The background wall is light blue, and the shag rug is a darker blue.
