Welcome to the Dream


Well, for those of you following me from My Tropical Affair site thanks so much for joining me on this new journey; and for anyone stopping in for the first time, I am so happy to meet you.  I started this blog because my first blog is full, stuffed to the gills with photos; and I don’t have the heart (or the time at this point) to peruse the entire 6 years’ worth of posts and decide what is worth keeping and what would go into the world of “trash”.  My photos, my words, my friends’ comments, are my heart.


So, I decided to start anew, but am leaving the other blog up and running and may pop over there now and then for a word or two.  The things I have there came from my soul and I treasure my time there.


Meanwhile the theme of this place is just as stated above.  I am working on my very first novel, the content of which is about this dream we call life and how we came to be the human race we have evolved into. The good, the bad, the insecure, the joyful, proud, distressed, faithful, faithless, loyal, jealous, zealous and passionate collective mind that makes up life on our blue and green spinning reality is a creation.  I propose that while the first spark of consciousness was the thought of the Prime Creator (by whatever name you call it), this creation was a gift to we, the product of Its great love; and it is we who have carried on the creation of our reality.


I take photos, amazed by life’s wonders, Nature’s miracles and the ever changing landscape of this planet.  As much as I have seen already, I know there is an endless list of places I have not, and may never see,  before my dream ends here.  Sometimes my thoughts flow along with the images and thus poetry is born.


I hope you will join me on my walk, enjoy the images shared here, and help me to dream the best of all possible worlds into reality for our life here.  Light is Life and life is amazing…..






Like me, she waits patiently through the cold sleep of Winter’s passing, with blush on her cheek, for Spring to breathe life into her soul once more. Then will she blossom! And be brilliant.  😊

  1. Hi Cheryl. Hope your new blog is going well. Like you, I have been pursuing other endeavors. I look forward to getting familiar with your new space and catching up. Hope all is well. Roly.


  2. I’m a new follower so we’ll go on your new journey together. I am not a blogger myself, but I do follow some terrific bloggers, including Dan. I find these posts sometimes informative/
    educational, sometimes just plain interesting, and sometimes damn funny. I so enjoy reading what these creative people have to say, and now that includes you.

    I must say, your setup (I don’t know correct term here) is very attractive and easy on the eyes.


    1. Hi Ginger! So good to see you here. I love Dan’s blog and am so honored he linked me in so I could connect with so many other great bloggers and readers. I’m glad you like the theme here.


  3. Congratulations on your new blog. I’m visiting via Dan Antion, and thanks to his Saturday trips to the bar, I feel like I already know you 🙂
    Best wishes for the next 6 years of blogging!!


    1. Thanks Joanne. Dan’s the best for allowing me to fulfill my closet dream of bartending. He pretty much has me pegged. So good to meet you. I hope I can stretch this one linger than the last. Wow. Six years sounds like a ling time looking ahead…


      1. I’m approaching the need to either start a new blog or do some housekeeping on mine. I don’t want to do either … so I’m procrastinating 🙂

        … and yeah, I agree. Dan is the best!


  4. Lovely new blossom! 🙂 I’m amazed to hear that you had your first blog for six years! How did I manage to fill mine in 1.5 years?? Looking good, this theme, I love the big photo. No love button on purpose? Much love on your new path!


    1. Still trying to get things set up but it is not as easy as it used to be. That is somehow backwards don’t you think? Thanks so much for visiting and the support. Yeah, six years and just filled it up.
