You are WOW

bag was made by this lovely lady

(Mushy blog love alert!)

So all of your comments just completely WOWED me on the last post. There is no doubt that we all receive something special from being
and growth-seekers--
and then throwing ourselves out there, bare-assed and vulnerable for the blog world to see. We are better for it, stronger and braver with thicker skin to match.


It's an odd thing to have connected so intently with people I've never met in person (save a few ;), but I have. The true gifts of integrity, through the words used, the vulnerability shared, and the kindnesses extended, shine through loud and clear when I read what you have written on any given day. The blogging community, at least the one that I am a part of, has a way of bringing out the best in each other, and for that I am grateful. Thanks for your words, your poetry and prose, your sincerity, and for seeing me as I see you. 

I do love your soul.

  1. I couldn't agree more about the blogging community and was actually talking about this exact thing this morning. The connection is just amazing, and I do believe we bring out the best in each other.

    Thank you.

  2. so true...and you are most deserving of all the kind words! :) Love the sunset photos...just beautiful x

  3. Poetry is the window into a person's soul, and if we are truly to understand someone, then we must decipher the meaning of their words. But, I'm a poetry addict. I loooooove it and when others write it, I kind of go nutty over it.
    Glad you're in this space and I get to come here and see into you. Hey, you won something over on my site:)

  4. I love my tiny circle of the blogging world which is huge for me. So happy that you are happy and will continue to write your thoughts!

  5. This is what I so love about the blogging community! Your captures are stunning!

  6. Amazing photography and heartfelt words make the best blogs. I especially like your tree silhouette against the blue and orange sky. Blessings!

  7. Reading these posts a tad late.
    However, let me say your last post did indeed strike a mirror chord with my own thoughts. Validations. That is the word that has been ripping me up, without me even knowing its name. Not only in the blog world {though that was a big one} but any and all pursuits.
    You have a way of hitting the nail on the proverbial head MJ, right when I need it.

    1. Thanks Leah :), I'm glad to know we are on the same wavelength most of the time ;)

  8. These photos are just lovely! Thank you for sharing them, MJ. Now I'm off to read the post you referenced here.
