The  sun is still low in the sky,  its rays have barely begun to pierce the chill of our pale window.  Don’t go,  we are scarcely out of dreaming.  Feel my heart beat with the lifeline of your palm as  my head rests in the crook of your shoulder.   These   fingertips you kiss one by one will ease the furrow of your brow and  I  will soothe your body with the twining of my own. Let the hours pass  through us tenderly like a shallow river of fledgling reeds.

      1. Today it shines!
        The gown IS finished, Mini-me is done. I’ve been watering and pruning the plants. The carpet looks like a forest’s floor!. Of course I’ll be moving some of the plants into the hallway. Otherwise, there’s no room to shoot the gown. I have over 50 house plants, and I love and talk to all of them.
        Jeep, the ring leader, has taught Johnny to vomit in the gown room. I’m finding the stains detract.
        So, I bought a can of eco-friendly pet stains remover for carpets. It seems to work great, but I’ve used the entire can, and the rug is only 1/2 clean.
        I can hardly wait to shoot!!!

        1. You really need to bottle some of that energy, you could make a fortune (just from me). So things are going good with the program! Jeep is a little trouble maker. Bajheera and Tide are tidy. I Can’t wait to see your finished project.

          1. Jeep: “Johnny, mommy just vacuumed the gown room. You get in there and start shedding. I’m heading to the kitchen. I saw some stray onion skins in there, good for tracking. Oh, and don’t forget to vomit!”

      1. The Heart in House of Heart is a beautiful blend of poignancy and tenderness Rene. I am always grateful for the visions you conjure in my mind. My silly head elves, I wish you could see how they lay about and daydream after reading you. 👩‍🎨😍😍😍

  1. Coucou toi , mon Ami Amie et belle HEART

    Dans le chemin du bonheur
    Il existe des virages nommés erreurs
    Des feux de signalisation nommés amis ou amies
    Des lumières de précaution nommées famille
    Sur la route comme en famille et en amitié
    Tout se paie comme au péage
    Mais tout peut être accompli
    Comme un pneu de rechange nommé Décision
    Dans le cœur tu as un puissant moteur nommé Amour
    Dans la tète un réservoir avec beaucoup de carburant nommé Patience
    Mais en toi tu as surtout un conducteur expert nommé Courage
    Pardonne ces erreurs
    Je te souhaite une belle journée ou soirée
    Bisou amical Bernard
