.....WHEN SHADOWS FILL OUR DAY ......

....... WHEN SHADOWS FILL OUR DAY .....

( THIS IS WHAT  SHADOWS AND REFLECTIONS HAVE TO DO WITH
THE LITTLE OLD WIDDER WOMAN .... ME)

July 31, 2011


 Bocelli
and
 Dion



"THE PRAYER"
I recommend this c.d.
It will touch your life...... your soul.


lyrics from "The Prayer"
" ....................  when shadows fill our day ........."

After a few months of Eldon's death in 2009
I watched .... listened to this hauntingly beautiful song for the first time, sung by 
  Celine Dion and
Andrea Bocelli,
I was lost  .... lost as if in the dense forest in a scene 
in the video........
picture a forest floor shrouded
in shadows .....
 I'd post a picture of a forest
but I invite you to
close your eyes and
see your own
forest .... through your own
inner sight


where sunlight may never reach except for
slim shafts of light from the opening in the trees high above. 

"........... when shadows fill our day ......."
And yesterday,
July 29, 2011
as I listened and watched
"The Prayer"
for the 100th time
I realized
for shadows to be cast
upon a forest floor
or my life......
the sun
has to be shining!


And reflected onto the
surface of my life
is all the beauty,
drama,
joys and shadows
I've walked through.
Not alone since I was sixteen years old
and not alone now at 71.

"THE SHADOW KNOWS"

If you're very young
you won't have a CLUE
what
  I mean by 

"THE SHADOW KNOWS"


Ask someone old ....


 shadows                                                                            
                                                        shadows                  
                           shadows                                             
                                                             
                                                                            
  shadows                                                           shadows         
                          shadows                                  
                              
If you haven't noticed ......
I'm fascinated by shadows!

However...
after much study
pondering and
deep thought....
I have determined the following:
tree shadows are not green

my little red house shadow is not red

a banana shadow is not yellow

the shadow of a bouquet of purple flowers is not purple

a cloud shadow is not white

However ......
after additional
intense scrutiny and research on this subject,
(Friday  July 29, 2011)
I can expose my findings that .....
a black horse
WILL cast a black shadow.




There are     
 short     
shadows
very small

long                       
ssshhhhadooowwss
very longgggggggggggggggggg
Wherever you are
your shadow is there with you.....
sometimes
hiding

   OTHER TIMES
BIG AND BOLD.


Sometimes you
can
bring along
a friend's
shadow.....








or walk alone
... not really alone because your
shadow is with you.


But when you sit in the shade  of a tree
                 only the tree shadow shows.


Shadows hide
 under bridges and rocks......
but
reflections
enhance
and dance,
shimmer
across
a pond.

How have I never noticed
the dramatic
beauty
yet fragile nature
of
 shadows
and
reflections
reflections?

Reflections in company with
 shadows,

paints a masterpiece
 of the
handiwork of
God!
And when the
sun  sets
shadows  and reflections rest ......

or is that like
when a tree falls in the forest
and nobody's there to hear it
does is still
make a crashing noise?'



With the sunrise
 awakens the morning....
for a new day of
shadows
and
reflections.





in time to help get some gardening done.


The end.

BUT!
If you send me pictures of
 YOUR shadow
or reflections,

(I like to think our children are reflections of us ...)
I'll post them
on my blog...
now that would be fun!

send shadow or
reflection photos to:

FUN!

p.s. Sorry if you get this
more than once....sometimes my shadow makes mistakes or
wants to add to
or edit my blog
 ......
And when my shadow
wants to
become creative .....
I let it!
