Peach State says: Watching the Shadows Dance on my Wall!

The ever-changing shadows played as the reflecting glow moved them across the wall.
The lined pattern, from the blinds, resembled a music staff as the various notes appeared and disappeared on the shadowy sheet of music. The symphonic movement composed for just me, all while Watching the Shadows Dancing on my Wall!

The elegant sway, as the light glistened on the wall, moved like the shimmering beacon from a lighthouse. Steady and direct…lending of itself confidence for the weary. The trees slowly performed a beautifully orchestrated ballet as the shadows stretched longingly across the wall. The fluttering of soft fairy wings moved silently around the shadows as the slight breeze moved freely through the leaves. Quietly, I relaxed, Watching the Shadows Dancing on my Wall!

My eyelids grow heavy…my body stills as it is enveloped by a billowy warmth. Breathing slows it’s pace as the glow flows around the room. The sleepy sounds of crickets and waves accompany the shadows as they dance. Fuzzily I try Watching the Shadows Dancing on my Wall!

My eyes lose the battle and give way to the night. The shadows fade as the reflections cease. The night silents the busy day to allow for the body’s recovery…in expectation of a new ballet. I will awaken to still shadows as I begin my day. I will admire, for a short time, the sun-dial movements of daytime shadows as they stretch slowly over the floor. Memories will pierce into my daily activities and I will long for another night-time symphony. The melodic movements will calm my chaotic world and give me a time to quiet my soul.

What a wonderful way to fall asleep…Watching the Shadows Dancing on my Wall!

Do you enjoy Watching the Shadows Dancing on the Wall? “I do…and I just had to share!” Have a great day!

Peach State says: Oops! I did it again!

When do we leave?

There is was right there in front of me…taunting me with desire.  I pressed the button and….this has been added to items to record.

Oops! I did it again!

I had recorded a movie that I already own but who cares…it was Mama Mia!  So this morning, after my youngest left for school, I settled in with all the needed supplies.  My coffee, of course, was by my side and the remote in hand.  Power on and list displayed…there you are.  PLAY!  I sat back with memories flooding my mind of the last time I watched this movie.  Do you remember?  I know you do!  We were so excited to be together for the weekend and this movie was the icing on the cake.  We sang along, as if we were part of the cast, every lyric and rhyme.  We even danced, hopping and spinning in my living room.  My youngest son was in the room with us and was unprepared for this experience.  What were we to do?  Sit there quietly and tap a foot!! “Nope”  That would have been impossible for us…I don’t know of anyone who could sit still during this movie.

So…with the movie starting…I anticipated the first song.  I have seen this movie many times and am drawn into it every time.  I confess!  I want to be on a Greek Island living in a villa.  I would like to see a group of men dancing and Cabana boys singing.  The sun shining down on the beautiful beaches….Reality sinks in and I remember where I am.  At least the mother and daughter have conflicts and there are money issues.  The villa is in need of repair and everything is falling apart…Now this sounds like my house!  I can face most anything…just hand me the roll of Duct Tape and I am ready.  I am the mother of four boys and have been married for 25+ years.  Needless to say this type of movie is not viewed by the family.  It is my alone time…time just for me…my Spa time!  “It is a good thing I like a wide variety of movies and actors.  I would not get to spend time with my family if I didn’t”

The movie ends and I have turned off the TV.  It is almost time to wake up the rest of the house.  One son is job hunting today and my husband is off.  I will have to make this quick.  I do miss our time together and the next time we see each other you can bet this movie will be part of the schedule.  Till that day comes; I will treasure the memories I have and gracefully open my beautiful wrap, from around my shoulders, and dance into the kitchen to make coffee.  Oh wait, I better not do that…I might knock something over or hurt myself.  ” I don’t want that to happen again!” But that was not me…was it?

Have a great day!
