Tales from an island

impressions in summer – short but sweet

(with a few songs along the way for your listening pleasure- choose one or all of them!)

As the sun sails down into the early evening sea

Being There

 walk along the shore, just being there

seaside impressions


Orinoco Flow

 and then be carried far off by the waves  to find the Sea Shell house

The Sea Shell House

or to where  a lady waits forever for her boatman

Fare thee well love, where ere you be- Fhir a bhata

 and in her garden, listen to the Hummingbird


or sit quietly near the shore and be lulled by gliding swans and soft tides

on board the Calypso
aye Calypso

and hear the songs of mermaids

Mermaid’s song


To my blogging friends:

As time moves forward there are challenges and maybe difficulties ahead with the treatments for Nick, but always a few joys and surprises along the way. Keep us in your good thoughts and blessings for all.

    1. Thanks so much dear friend!! We are hanging in there as best we can right now. I hope your summer is going well and you have no fires where you are. The island isn’t too bad so far but the rest of the province is suffering!

      1. Your side of the country is having such terrible drought conditions while we’re getting rain practically every day. Wish I could funnel some of it where it’s desperately needed. I’ll be keeping you in my prayers! ❤
