one of my favorite poems…..


Keep me from going to sleep too soon
Or if I go to sleep too soon
Come wake me up. Come any hour
Of night. Come whistling up the road.
Stomp on the porch. Bang on the door.
Make me get out of bed and come
And let you in and light a light.
Tell me the northern lights are on
And make me look. Or tell me clouds
Are doing something to the moon
They never did before, and show me.
See that I see. Talk to me till
I’m half as wide awake as you
And start to dress wondering why
I ever went to bed at all.
Tell me the walking is superb.
Not only tell me but persuade me.
You know I’m not too hard persuaded.

Robert Francis


I hope you all like this as much as I do…I know I have been a tad absent from this space…been working on a bunch of things, and I like to bring the best I have to offer here…but I wanted to let you know that I have not completely disappeared…and I have been wanting to share this with you for a long while…my hope was to read it to you, but I am having trouble figuring out how to work the audio files into my posts!…until then, I leave you, mi amigas with this…

and my deepest wishes for a gorgeous week end full of whatever it is you might be needing or dreaming of..

and be on the look out next week for a fun giveaway…

warmly, and with brightest blessings,
