A Quiet Reverence Of Snow…

A quiet reverence of snow falls softly on the land…as life holds its breath.

There is something about snow falling out here in the middle of nowhere that brings a silence of holiness…as time seems to stands still.

Silence fills your heart with purity as the small white flakes fall quietly around you.

What

The silence brings sad memories too of loosing my sweet kitty girl, Minnie Mouse a year ago yesterday…

While I know she is safe and someday I will see her again,

I miss her presence and her sweet spirit…

Her beautiful green eyes and her kind kitty girl heart.

Tonight as I write it is super cold, with icy roads and fog that drifts in and out of our canyon.

Old memories come back each holiday season as I miss the loss of relationship with family and miss those who are no longer with us. I miss the old days…and the old ways.

I hope that you all have a wonderful turkey day tomorrow, with lots of good stuff…new memories, good food and always lots of laughter. The second turkey we cooked on our Traeger….oh my, it is darn good! Whoo-Hoo and so easy too! If you don’t have a Traeger yet, get one as they are worth it!!! Everything you cook on them is absolutely delicious!!!

Happy Valentines Day My Wild Bill!

 I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines Day…this is late but heart felt:)

Bend, Oregon Car Show

February 14th is an anniversary for us as Wild Bill and I met 38 years ago on Valentines Day.

It seemed by chance, but God had it planned…we knew we had found our soul mate, our life partner and best friend…it was one of those times in life that clicked, you knew and your heart knew.

We were married eight months later! And 38 years later we are still making beautiful music together and one in heart…except when we dance as Wild Bill can not count time! He can count the time and beat of horsepower but not music! I am a natural in counting double time or time and a half or just time in the beat of life that you can hear in the beat of music! I love it!

This is Wild Bill’s dance beat and I love this beat with him too…this is “Jagged” WB custom built this 1928 Dodge Coupe and installed a V-12 Jag motor in it…they said there was no way that he could use an American carburetor on the V-12…he said oh yeah? The rest of the story is yes…he did it!

Music has always been part of my life, listening to the verse, the bass, the lead, the chords, and the rhythm, songs that tell the story often tie into my life or what I am writing about or the photo that I am taking. Funny how both the beat of life and the beat of music actually fit together…throw in a few chosen words and you have a fit and hopefully a hit!

I have shared many of our songs with you…this song is written by Buddy and Julie Miller and truly wonderful. I wish I could include the simple beat of the song as they sing it…it makes you want to dance with your significant other, while the music speaks straight to your heart. If you want to hear this song, go to iTunes. Put a search in for Buddy and Julie Miller…and their songs…look for”Holding Up the Sky”…and enjoy!

Holding Up the Sky

By Buddy Miller & Julie Miller

When the night has stayed too long…And tears won’t keep

When the sun beats down too strong

Our love runs deep

And our love will hold up the sky

when the rain comes down too hard

It’s a cord that will not untie

It’s a promise the angels guard

It will always be your name

written on my heart

OregonTrip_117

You are inside my heart

Baby our love was meant to be

it’s from Gods hands

Jeeping Evening

Even when dreams turn to memories

Our love will dance

I hope you all have a wonderful new week ahead…until next time, HRCG is over and out!
