Inside the Mind of Isadora

A Gift of Love


This is a repost from February of 2015. I believe it’s a post that’s needed at this time.

Bombarded with stresses from Hurricane Irma here in Florida,

the following week paralyzed us with Hurricane Maria which pummeled the island of Puerto Rico.

I have family there.The island has no power or phone service.

The roads have been washed away or have electric poles block their exiting.

To say I’ve been stressed is an understatement.

I’ll be back on a regular basis soon.

Love those you hold dear to your Heart.

Namaste 🙏🏻

The way to love anything deeply is to realize that it may be lost to you one day.

A Gift of Love

Without you,

Life is just existing,

With you,

Life is worth living

You put a name on the

Songs birds sing,

And you bring the smell of flowers

To a breezy spring

You are my sun,

You are my moon

Please get well

And come home soon.

February is the month in which we celebrate LOVE.

I am a hopeless romantic as is my husband.

He wrote this poem for me when I was in the hospital two years ago.

Heart - piano notes

My husband plays several instruments; clarinet, trumpet and cornet.

We met in band class when we were both playing clarinet.

He still plays for fun and for me. Dixieland jazz is his favorite genre.

Chris Barber is one musician he enjoys listening to and play along with.

This seemed like the perfect way to add LOVE to this week.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. I have no way of relating to the stress after like you (and many others) have experienced (and still are) as the result of the storm. Peace and strength to all!

    • Honestly, Frank, I’ve been through many hurricanes. Hurricane Charlie destroyed my middle daughters house. We were devsatated by the loss. She has since moved to South Carolina. Ths stress was too much. We had little fixable damage. We did it ourselves. No putting in for insurance. Others needed the help more.
      This time it was different with Hurricane Irma. I hope to chroncile the events. People need to knwo what John Q. Public experiences. I never thought I would be that guy. A reality check with fear producing anxiety and frustrations by my side. Thank you for stopping by with your supportive words. It’s of gerat relief to know that people understand this was some serious stuff.
      Hope you have a gloripus weekend with peace and tranwulity visiting at every moment.

  2. Hi Isadora, hope the things are getting better by now. I didn’t know you play music, it’s so lovely. My younger son plays flute. I love to listen to it when he is playing. Have a great weekend!

  6. Mi Querida Amiga,

    I can’t imagine what you’ve been through between storms. It seems so trite to say that you’re in my thoughts and prayers…and of course that phrase is being blasted all over Facebook. Pero, es la verdád. Lovely post.

    Shalom y paz de Dióz,



  7. Beautiful post! My heart and prayers are with those in Puerto Rico and hope their electricity is up and going soon and the roads are cleared for them. Beautiful poem Isadora!

  8. It is a message we do need this week, Isadora. Praying for your family, and my friends on PuertoRico. So many tragedies for our nation recently. So very sad. So many more hours spent in prayers.


  9. Prayers for your family as well as for everyone else impacted by the hurricanes, earthquakes, and the shooting in Las Vegas.



  10. Hope you receive word from your family that they are okay. Such devastation. Can feel all the love snd concern in your post. ❤️

    • There is no word yet from those left in Puerto Rico. Hurricane Maria devastated the island. It’s so sad to know that even my parents who are buried in the US Military cemetary may no longer be there. I have a sister and her husband who I have not heard from due to the electric being destroyed. My borther is in an institution for the mentally incapacitated and no word from that institution either. Time … is my only solution to this.
      Always good to see you here. Your positove words have been of comfort. Thnak you.
      Isadora 😎
