just two happy people.

~

LOLOLOL.

~

you know this one.

is the glass half full?

or is it

half empty?

~

now.  the marine would think of it that way.

~

you know.

technically.

~

because he is quite simply

and

not loudly

but absolutey

~

a

~

and though he doesn’t wear glasses at all . . .

he’s the exact opposite of me old bean.

~

i only wear them to drive or when watching tv.

BUT

my mental glasses would probably have to be called

‘ rose colored. ‘

~

i’m this guy

~

below . . .

~

singin-in-the-rainnpr.org

~

apparently just born that way.

~

we were raised by the same parents.

in the exact same environment.

and yet we’re as different as two peas in a pod.

OR

NO DOUBT . . .

I have that expression TOTALLY wrong.

oh sigh.

alas.  alack.  and as it were.

~

like the time i told bob

to ” GET OFF YOUR HIGH HOG!”

~

he said  “horse.”

i said . . .  “since when are we talking about horses!”

boy was i mad.

~

the argument dissolved into his laughter.

~

but i digress.

~

well.

actually.  you’d think peas in the same pod would be the same.

don’t know where that expression came from!

LOLOL.

~

but . . .  to put it differently . . .

we each see the world very differently.

~

even before he became an environmental scientist . . .

he has always seen everything very technically.

black and white and shades of grey.

action.  reaction.  form.  function.

hypothesis.

reality.

~

and yet you will never find a warmer heart

hidden beneath all that science

than his.

~

i on the other hand . . .

well . . .

~

like a musicalcrossfadr.com

~

TA  DA  !!!!

~

i was made for the STAGE !!!

~

LOLOLOL!!!

oh.  you had noticed that already had you?

~

my beloved late husband bob once told me . . .

~

” tam . . .  you’re the only person i’ve ever known

that lives life like it’s a movie musical. “

~

i can’t remember if he was laughing at the time or not.

at me?  with me?

  it doesn’t really matter.

i think i remember thinking . . . yes!

  i’d never really thought of it that way.

  but i guess he’s right.

~

this was . . .

  still IS . . .

  me.

~

little girl and bookdezzan at psd-dude.com

~

it started early.

my gram taught me to read well when i was 5.

and as you know . . . from reading the peanut . . .

i consider books to be my best friends

even to this day.

~

now.

this.

below.

this

~

granite counter topshrdorlando.com

~

 seems to be what most people are fantasizing about these days !

LOLOL.

~

YES!

recognize them?

granite counter tops.

suddenly your poor kitchen is SIMPLY NOT WORTH HAVING

unless you have

GRANITE COUNTER TOPS.

~

oh good grief charlie brown.

deliver me.

~

i couldn’t care less.

~

now

~

come into my own fantasy world.

it’s beautiful !

~

 the common everyday scenes that i see

are seen through magical lenses.

~

it’s not that i don’t know how to face reality.

~

i do.

  i do that well.

god knows i’ve had enough hard edged reality for a lifetime.

not nearly as bad as some.

but definitely as bad as most.

and all that many different kinds of pain

does make one grow.

~

SO !

it’s not that i don’t KNOW my world

is not the real world.

it’s simply the world i choose to see.

~

AND

it’s simply that . . .

my world is vastly more beautiful

than the real world.

so

i will

always

choose

to see it through my own lenses.

foggy morninghqwide.com

~

through the fog . . .  this wondrous light . . .

not the apartment complex . . .

across the street.

not the cars.

through the fog . . .

just the golden rays of sunlight of a new morning.

~

clouds like thiswallpaper.metalship.org

~

a sky like this . . .

with huge and glorious clouds looming overhead . . .

in the oklahoma springtime

that carries

no tornado . . .

only

  JOY !!!

~

and

on certain magical days . . .

and there are many old bean !

i choose to believe that somewhere . . .

there is . . .

a golden haired mermaid

reading a book

on a rock

~

~

and just for fun . . .

i know there is a place that looks like this.

i visit there often.

~

balloonhdbackgroundspoint.com

~

and i live here

~

night housewallscorner.com

~

SEE ?

i left the light on for you old bean !

~

come on in.

the pot’s on for tea.

but i don’t really drink tea.

i like the idea of drinking tea more than the tea.

LOLOL.

~

but for you . . .

i’ll have a cuppa.

~

the creatures are all friendly here.

nothing poisonous or fierce.

and i’m friends with all of them.

and i know them.

~

and in my world . . .

we are all protected by an army of women.

~

this army is about love.

not war.

not harming.

but protecting.

~

they are sure shots.

they never miss.

~

and the only people they do away with

are the humans that hurt animals

and innocents.

~

here is a valiant warrior now.

~

army of womendesktopwallpaperhd.net

~

beware all ye who fight for land and greed

and who slaughter and harm

~

ye will be no more!

~

fantasy world shatteredfaisal on deviantart.com

~

well.

that part of my fantasy world is even hard for me to believe.

~

but

that doesn’t stop me from knowing that i prefer

seeing my world the way i see it.

~

beautiful.

and

fun!

full of love and friendship.

friendly skies.

happy puppies of all ages.

cosy kitties.

gentle old people.

young strong and creative people.

everyone with a fascinating life story.

kindness and caring.

sharing.

and.

enough.

~

for everybody.

~
