The Other Side Of The Mirror....Reflecting Back To All Of You

I took this picture of myself looking in the mirror in my living can't really see me...other than a bright "Reflection"...but please know that I am always "here"...."On The Other Side Of The Mirror"....."Reflecting" back to all of "You".
I'm going on a vacation.....and I've not been able to get away or go on one for many many years! I will be gone for about 2 weeks and am very happy at how hard I worked to make all this happen....and I'm very thankful for someone who also helped make it happen. I'm more greatful than you will ever know...that you were suddenly "there" for me as a friend again, when it seemed like no one else had a clue that I felt like I was drowning and about ready to were "there" for me. I've been hanging onto that life raft for far too long.
I also want to thank my dear blog friends from all the way across the other side of the world who reached out to me. For your friendship and kindness and our "connection" like stars across the universe that found our way towards one another. It's such a blessing and a true "Miracle" my dear "EarthAngel" friends. I also want to thank all my dear blog friends who have been so loving, kind and caring towards my "blog and I". I'm so happy if any of my writings, poems, or words or Art or Pics touched you in any way, shape or form....even if just for a few was all worth it to me.
I know my life is changing and I know not what will happen at this point. But I do know I must be moving on now. I cannot say when I will return back to the blog world, as once I come back from my vacation I must prepare to move and I do not know where to, or how things will transpire.....but I know my Guardian Angels and "Spirit" will always be with me as I walk down "The Good Red Road". I will keep my "Dreams" and become a "Dreamkeeper" as I continue to try to make my "Dreams" come I go deeper into my "Inner Journey".
I wish for all of the Angels to watch over and be there for all of you, as you go along through your life's "Journeys".
I hope you will wish me well as I continue on my Journey of life...
Angel Blessings, "Hugs" and yes a bit of tears also....I will miss you all and never forget any of you. Maybe I will be back one day who knows?
I bid you a Very Fond Farewell. May all your Dreams come true....Love, Peace and "No More War"!!!
Love Always,
Rhiannon (This Skylark is flying away now)

I'm a Right test results.....

Think you'll have to click on this to enlarge it to read more easily. I found this test over on "Imran" blog post...he's on my blog list to the right if your interested in taking it. I had to scan my results as my pc won't do the cut and paste deal. I wasn't surprised with my test results as I've taken many many tests through the years about "left brain versus right brain dominance" and my results have always stated I'm most definitely a right brainer. More people are usually left brain dominant, so are good at techology, techincal things and "Business"...I've always had a problem with those subjects as I think "differently" and its more difficult for me in those areas. I also think more people have dyslexia (like I do) if they are right brainers. I have to use a lot of "tenacity" even to figure out computer things...try and try again is my motto! But when its comes to Art, creativity, decorating, creative writing and observing "things in life around me", I've always been pretty good at that..I'm also pretty intuitive, sometimes I wish I wasn't! I know I see things at times in a different light than some people do and that makes it hard at times. But I like "that I am" and so it is...:)

The Enchanted Storm....

Enchanted Lady
Freeing herself
From the past
Finding her way
Into a new life
at last................
Just down that road
The one she almost passed
The one she almost missed
The one she thought
Would never exist
The one beyond the storm
Overlooking the ocean cliffs
Dawn remembers the light
Of a new day
Showing the Enchanted Lady
A new way.........
No longer
Will her Soul
Nor Spirit
Be Betrayed
No longer
will her Heart
Be lead astray
For the Enchanted Lady
is slowly finding
Her way
Beyond the stormy sea
Beyond the ocean cliffs
Moving forward
To a New Life
A New Life
She never thought
would exist
Walking along
The path
Of the Enchanted storm

The Enchanted storm
Of a New Life.

Spirit Lovers...look closely and see them on the horses...

Yes...I've felt you
I know your reaching out
I can feel your prescence
all around me.....
Spirit Lovers.....
Across the distance
And yet so close
Our hands reach out
Across the mystery of time
Mystical Hearts
Become intertwined

Seeing is Believing...Or is it?...poem...

I've looked but never seen you...
I' ve seen you but never looked..
Which is it?
I still am not quite sure...
Do you feel the same?

Isn't it Beautiful?

The Answer.......

The Student became the Teacher
and a "Warrior"...
And the Teacher became the Student
Learning the lessons of "Survival"
And "Spirit".....
Roles reversed
In a surprisingly stunning "Test"
Which both passed
With flying colors....

One chair
In the middle of the room
And an apple on the front desk....
Written on the chalkboard
Was the answer.

Photos of old House's and car in my town...

Another hobby of mine is taking photographs with my Samsung (non digital) Maxima Zoom 70 GL camera. I've had it for about 5 years and I love's got a zoom lense and all kinds of deals. I've taken hundreds of photos but not having a digital camera and having to scan them and such on my pc is too time consuming...but I thought I'd share a few with you. These are of homes around the area where I live. I take walks and take these photos. Most of these homes were originaly built in 1925-1930. They have been updated obviously but still have many of the original
vintage styles and framework,etc.. I talked with the people who live in these homes as I asked if I could take photos of their houses, they come out and think I'm an FBI agent or "investigator" or something...he he..that's the way people are aound here..very "suspicious" and "clickish".....but if you be as nice as can be to them they will open up a bit...;)....It was interesting to hear the history of their homes that they all shared with me.
One couple have lived in their home since it was first originally built way back when. They spoke of "The good old days way back when". The grey and white trim house with the Gazebo type white fence entrance I call "The Gingerbread house". The owner came out when she saw me looking at it and me with my camera. At first she's like "what are you doing"? I just told her I'm an Artist and like to take photos of old "funky and beautiful homes" then she shared with me when her husband and her moved in 10 years ago and how he did all this work on it...added on and built the things all around the front of the house. Then I asked her if I could take a photo of her posing in front of her house. At first she said "oh no way forget it"!...but we talked a bit more then I said "nice meeting you have a nice day" and she went to walk back in her house but then came back out and said "Okay I'll pose if I can have my dog posing with me"...I said "sure whatever you want"...and you'll see the shot of her and her dog below.
I also got a photo of this really cool old car. I love old funky cars from the 50's and early to mid 60's. There are a few really funky old cars in great condition around here. Too bad all this is in the old "ghetto" part of town which is the old part of town where I live! One house will be horrible, unkempt and torn up and be a crack house and two houses down will be a beautiful home that a nice family is always taking the time to keep up and proud of...but things get much worse here as time goes on...too many people with meth amphetamine drug addictions have been destroying this town...I had no clue when I first moved here about 6 years can't get away from it, but I found myself having to keep moving (expensive) in order to be "Safe" but I finally gave up on that and now know how to "watch my back" to survive on my own here. I do a pretty good job of it to look confident and hold your head high when out in "the trenches"!.....but I am so ready to leave and move out of this town now...I've just got to find a way soon and hope the angels will help me in this endeavor very soon. Hope you enjoy the photos...don't forget to scroll down to see more!

Photos of old houses...another little "hobbie"

Grace In the Moment........


Standing before me
Is Grace in the Moment.....
She's a powerful force
A Spiritual Magic
That living in the Now
Can bring.............

Grace in the Moment
Not looking behind
Nor looking ahead
Nothing to fear
And nothing to dread

Lights spread her honor
in my Prescence
And Angels abound
They circle
all around
For Special Gifts
Keep coming my way
Oh Grace in the Moment
Will you please stay...
With me?
Oh Grace in the Moment
Will you set my Heart Free?

New Daylight Savings time on my Birthday!

Don't forget everyone that Daylight Savings time is early and has changed it's month now! It will be this Sunday on my Birthday, March 11th! Wow, I'm kind of looking at this Birthday as a new "Daylight" of a hopeful omen for me as a "Dawning of a new Time and Daylight of "Light" for me in my life. I hope for everyone else also.

I have always loved's my favorite month of the it's so unpredictable (kind of like me :)) it comes roaring in like a Lion (That's my Leo rising sign) and comes out like a lamb....or is it the other way around? No, I think I got it right! You just can't predict the weather in March for we seem to get it clear skies, with beautiful white puffy clouds (like whipped cream, meringue or mashed potatoes) and you swear when you look up at them you can see a view that's shaped like Angels with their "white willowy graceful shapes and whispering wings", protecting and looking over and down on us earthlings.

We can get a nice warm day, or pouring rain or snow another day. Or a beautiful spring day, with the air so crisp and clean, with skies so bright blue and flowers blooming all around us in such a deep rich and bright rainbow of colors. We can have a day where the wind is just so wild and its blowing all of the "cobwebs" out of our winter sadness and darkness away from our hearts....and the eternal sun always shines through to another "dawning" of another beautiful day, another beautiful month..

"March"....the time of unexpected delights and splendor that the Angels and Mother nature have brought to our souls "once again"...."New life begins".....I'm very greatful for the new beginning of "life" chances, new changes, risks, faith, and spirits courage. Having faced the darkness and cold of winter into mornings new dawning light of Spring, once again....amidst the "Eternal Sunshine" always in our beginnings and "miracles" for the war to finally stop, and be no more and Love and Peace to soon recide within us all upon "Freedoms Shores" everywhere.

Many Angel Blessings to all of you,

Chinese New Year of the Fire Pig......

February 18th, 2007 was the start of the Chinese New Year of the Fire Pig.

This year, the year of the Pig aspect is yin and the element is Fire.
This combination only happens every 60 years.

Fire Pig : Feb. 1947 and 2007

The Fire Pig is bold, vivacious, and motivated.
They don't think twice before taking a risk
and nothing can deter them from a goal once set.
These attributes and strengths of the Fire Pig will generally affect
this whole year (starting yesterday Feb. 18th) in whats going on in the the world
according to Chinese astrology. So, lets all get motivated and determined
for a big change in the world, for standing up for all of our freedoms,
rights, and most of all for Love, Peace, Compassion and Understanding for others....
As musician Elvis Costello sang in one of his songs
"Whats so funny about Love, Peace and Understanding"?
I say ABSOLUTEY NOTHING is funny about it at all...NOT AT ALL!

Angel Blessings,

The Weapon of Mass Destruction...looking in the Mirror

At times I can be a bit bold.......soooooooo...........
Let our President and his Administration accept and take some personal responsibility
for their's about time to ask "how did we get to this point"?....Doesn't
take a rocket scientist to figure it out.
Iran asked to meet with us a few times during the first few years of this war and our
president said repeatedly "No, we will not meet, talk or negotiate with the axis of evil"!
I'm not defending Iran just trying to make a point...and as sad as it is for me to
say, I had to agree with what Putin said the other day about how America (Big Brother) has
frightened and angered so many countries into such a fear of protecting and defending themselves against "us", not just terrorist!...what has become of us???!! We are acting
like such "Seperatist" and "we are always right and oh so powerful"...scary!
Look in the mirror Mr. President.
"Enemy Mine"...anyone ever see that movie "Enemy Mine" by the way? Very Interesting movie.
Angel Blessings for more Love, Compassion "Wake up calls" and PEACE NOW!

You see your Gypsy


So I'm back
to the velvet
Back to the floor
that I love
To a room with some lace
and paper flowers
Back to the Gypsy
that I was
To the Gypsy.......
that I was

And it all comes down to you
Well, you know that it does
Well, lightning strikes
maybe once
maybe twice
Ah, and it lights up the night
And you see your Gypsy
You see your Gypsy

To the Gypsy that remains
faces freedom
with a little fear
I have no fear
I have only love
And if I was a child
And the child was enough
Enough for me to love
Enough to love

She is dancing
away from you now
She was just a wish
She was just a wish
And a memory
is all that is left
for you now
You see your Gypsy
You see your Gypsy

Lightning strikes
maybe once
maybe twice
And it all comes down to you

And it all comes down to you

Lightning stikes
maybe once
maybe twice
And it all comes down to you

I still see your bright eyes
bright eyes
And it all comes down to you
I still see your bright eyes
bright eyes
And it all comes down to you

I still see your bright eyes
bright eyes
(She was just a wish)
(She was just a wish)
And it all comes down to you

Lightning strikes
oooh maybe once
maybe twice
And it all comes down to you

The Golden Moment of Midnite..

Luxurious castles adorn
draping over the Golden Moment
eclipsed and hidden
partly from view
Rolled over and cast through
the other side of Midnite.

The Whispering Winds of Freedom...

Did you hear me calling your name?
through the whispering wind?
nestling in white webs
of flowing nets
of our memories...

Past our trials
to our new dreams
setting them free
opening that door
seeing the light
and saying "yes"....

Freedom shores are beckoning
Freedom shores are calling to us.

Souless Vision...

I heard your voice
echo from afar
so distant and strange
yet the memory remained...

Your arrival so long ago
walking into my world
yet always standing
from a distance......
my heart contracted
feeling your resistance
your comfort
from my prescence
your fading love
pulled away
and you had nothing to say
as your memory
turned to silver and grey
frayed and torn
trying to find your way
through the maze
of your ambition
as your eyes were lost
in your own souless vision.

Your memory slowly fades from me now..

Crystal Essence.....

Belief in the Sunrise
Belief there will be pain no more
Belief that the narrow and lonely path
I've had to walk for so long
will widen out to a never ending
opening door
a stream washing me clean
Clear as Crystal
in Healings Essence
I felt myself
in the Angels prescence
I opened my arms wide
wrapping their blinding light
around me
and Understanding
no longer captive
no longer estranged
no longer afraid
no longer captured
I opened to Love's
Glorious Rapture

An Ancient Ruin....

An Ancient Ruin
came into play
an ancient soul
showed me the way
past my trials
past my pain
the path showed me
tears of rain
washing me clean
in a crystal clear
pool of water
cleansed my soul
made me whole...

An ancient ruin
was reborn
whispering waves
that calmed the storm
within my heart
within my soul
an ancient ruin
to make me

The Invisible Girl....

In timeless skies
I arise
I felt despised
not recognized...

In regards
to your own pleasure
you only sought
your own treasure...

Drifiting afloat
on a life raft
rough waters
catch my cries
of despair
But here I am
the Invisible Girl
that was my name
in lifes struggles
I wouldn't play
your game
what a shame..

In The Place That I Sit.........

In the Place that I sit
In the Rooms that I Feel
In the Time and the Place
Where lucid is Real
In the Place that I Step
Going backwards and behind
In the Place that Cross's my Mind
I move Forward
But then fall back
I lose Faith
And lose track........

In the Place that I sit
nothing seems Real
In the Place that I sit
Is the Place that I Feel
in the Place that I sit
Will my Dreams become Real?
