At First


















The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream.

The oak sleeps in the acorn; the bird waits in the egg;
and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs.

Dreams are the seedlings of realities.

My dreams are extremely weird and most times, when I wake up, I am just amazed at the strangeness my brain comes up with. I will assume (and hope) that what James was talking about was growth, the spiritual kind. Because I do NOT want what happens in my head at night coming true. :) Love you, Miss Renee! xoxoxoxox

I love that. I have never heard that quote before. Thank you for sharing that. The picture is so pretty...lily of the Nile? Sending you love, and rainbows, and a unicorn. **blows kisses** Deb

karengberger said...

It just occurred to me to ask: you give so generously to your blogging and family community - is there anything that Sheldon and Jacquie especially want or need that we could do for them? XOXO to you and all of your family.

Yoli said...

"like a rubber ball,
you come bouncing back to me"

you bounce like no one i know, dear moon sister. you may collapse, but then you bounce.

i think you were this wise in first grade.

Dreams- AHHHK! if mine were seedlings of reality we would all have to leave this planet. "dream" is an odd word. "Imagine" is more like positive, constructive, thinking.
LOVExxxoooYOU!

studio lolo said...

To me the waking angel signifies our passing. It's comforting to know that we'll still be there for others just as our angels are here for us now.

I just noticed the kisses all over the olives on the card! It takes me a while sometimes.

love you,
Lolo

Beautiful Renee...I'm going to pass the poem on to a few of my clients. Thank you. xx

Who is this Renee? I was curious, so I popped over. Read back quite a ways, and...well...lame ass words but...I am sorry for the "C" invasion. I have been through it with my mom and my sister, and now of course, there is a spot deep against my chest wall that they are watching, watching, watching. Sucks. Yeah, you know. In any event I have meant to visit and today is the day. I see from your followers that you do not lack for support, so I will just pop in from time to time, make sure the delicate ph of life has not changed. Blessings.

Lovely thought.

TERI REES WANG said...

Dream a little dream.
Let be bold, and allow it a clear, clean shot straight to your real world.

I dare you.

Be well, best you know how.

Lizzy Frizzfrock said...

Beautiful words, Renee. Thanks for sharing them.

Sue said...

Birth, passing and dreams.

Beautiful end quote on this, "dreams are the seedlings of reality"

Hugs to you,

Rob-bear said...

Beautiful picture; though-provoking words. Somehow those are so "you," Renee.

Thanks for sharing.

On our front, puppies went for their first walks today. We anticipated difficulties. But they're naturals -- rarely tugging on the leash.

Silver said...

Ah... absolutely beautiful.

As to your question earlier abt the massage? Maybe NitWit1(Carol) of http://cowardscorner-nitwit1.blogspot.com/
may be able to help??(She is in Pharmaceuticals, i think and did know about their offerings like where and etc,) I will try to ask her for more info and get back to you later, ok!!

But always check with your Dr first if you're trying anything new, ya.

The Eastern healing often boasts of many kinds of alternative treatments but .. much care has to go into understanding along with serious considerations. But it is always good to know what's out there for knowledge and comparisons..

Elizabeth said...

This is such a beautiful thing. Wherever did you find it?

Caroline said...

Beautiful image and words. I'll write this one down! x

Allegra Smith said...

Hello my dearest,

For some reason I have not been able to post all day, so darn frustrating! Blogger can be such a pill, and I mean that in the worst possible way.

You have enough without taking any from me, and I don't have any reason to give you any, and I wouldn't let you have any anyway, no matter how lovely of you it is to offer. You know what I mean.

I am waiting anxiously to hear about the scan and all the other nonsense from your end of the scale. What a thing we must deal with, I guess we have to prove something but I am not sure I would have said yes if someone would have asked me. I know that it may be the reason why I wasn't asked and neither were you.

I will be fine, I have Beloved to watch over me and help me, have you who loves me and so many dears to my heart that there is no space there for anything else I suspect.

Be well darling, take care of yourself and remember that you are loved and that there is nothing in the world that could change from life to life forever.

Wendy said...

So true. Thank you!

A Cuban In London said...

Beautiful quote. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

Renee - on this rainy day I am sitting here, sipping my tea, and thinking of you and yours. Wish you could come over and have a cuppa with me. Love you! xo Pam

Bella Sinclair said...

I prefer to dream, so often disappointed by the outcome of reality.

How are you, darling dear Renee? Hope a laugh finds its way to your heart this weekend.

xoxo

LDWatkins said...

Sometimes it doesn't take many words to say the most important thoughts but requires lots of thinking to find the words. Does that make sense? Love to you,Lynda

Julie said...

Renee...this is so beautiful. Always thinking of you and your family xxx Julie

Clarity said...

Thank you Renee. Sometimes I feel dreams can take over, we must remember to plant them, one at a time. Peace, love, xxx.
