Sunday Song – Malaguena Salerosa

Love is like the wonders of a unique rose in the garden of peace.

Flower 485 Rose 5.web

Beauty is not in the face; Beauty is a light in the heart. Khalil Gibran

Placido Domingo sings this romantic song about the beauty of a woman he desires,

but feels unworthy of her. The words are in Spanish and English.

Enjoy … Isadora 😎

Friday Fictioneers – Make Magic Happen

The funeral was exactly the way my grandmother wanted.

She pre-paid and planned it all before she died.

Always the forward-thinking woman, no one would be able to leave any details out.

The rose garden was to be her final resting place.

She’d say, “Where else would I want to be? These roses have helped me create beautiful paintings that will live on in the homes of many long after I’m gone.”

Her garden was magical. She could grow colorful varieties.

I’m sure she’s looking down at us and saying, “Pick up a paintbrush and make magic happen.”

Friday Fictioneers – Pierre’s Tulip Garden 

She was waiting for Pierre in the garden. He’d gone to get some wine for their moonlight stargazing tonight. He was always very romantic.

The floral scents engulfed her as she walked among the many

prize-winning tulips.

There were many varieties. Pierre was proud of his green thumb. 

Turning, she saw him running towards her. 

“Mona! My precious flowerThe love of my life.”

Finally, he said it. 

“Oh, Pierre!

Mona, my flower!”

Oh, Pierre! I love you too!

Pierre reached her. He knelt and moved her foot aside.

“My flower!” “You were standing on my prize-winning flower.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge – Cultural Exchange

Laughter is the best medicine …

Traveling through the jungle had been brutal. The heat had overcome many.

Walking along, we see many homes that the opposing tribes had destroyed. Remnants of brick walls were the only signs.

The tour guide told us we would learn many things about the Watusi culture, including their healthy lifestyle.

I was excited about learning all of these new things.

Soon, the Watusi shaman was telling us about their exercises and dances.
I was in awe when they began to dance.

The exercise works wonders on circulation. Watusi tribe members originated it. It also slims you down without medication.

I have been doing the exercises and workout moves since I arrived home from my vacation. I’m feeling much better already. I recommend you start right away.

This video shows what you should do daily to help with leg and knee pain and stiffness.

Once a day is sufficient for assured success! Enjoy …

Musical tones bring joy and happiness within, dance captures sound in every step in time.

The blues tells a story in itself. It can make you happy or give you a feeling to swing.
