The Faery Dance

image found here

The Faery Dance
Sparkling lights, twinkling lights
Around they come again
Dancing in circles, in spiral circles
The faery Dance of yore...
They come, they go
They circle about,
They call your name to them...
"Come dance with us,
Come play with us...
Under the midnight moon!"

Oh my....Bruno Mars

What can I say about Bruno Mars besides...WOW!. My wonderful little sister took me to his concert last night. What a blast we had! I love the big band style music with a Latin flare. My feet are tired from dancing,  my voice is just a little hoarse from singing along and I'm pretty sure I said "Huh" a few times today. I don't think I'll hear right for a few days, it was so loud. Oh, and the lights and the special effects, so thrilling to watch! I could use a few more nights like last night. It feels so good to just let loose and leave all the worries of life behind for a few hours.

Thank you sis for the great night! I love you!

Mia and the concert
The one below is a cool pic Mia did for my Facebook profile pic.


I can't wait for my next concert. I'm not sure who I am going to see, but I am going to another one...soon!

What concert have you been to lately? Are there any upcoming concerts that you are anticipating going to?

Rock on!!!

I love the feel of connectedness I feel while surround by the beauty of Nature. Time seems to slow down, the voices on the wind calling you to join the Dance of Nature. The scent of moist earth fills the air with memories of past lives. Lives that we live when we were in tune with the cycles and rhythms of Mama Earth. Feeling the Breath of Life seep through every tree, stone and plant brings to mind the sacredness of all things.  The reflection of light dancing on water  looks like tiny little faeries playing in the afternoon sunshine. Even the dead trees seem to be filled with a life of their own. They have many stories to tell. Grandparents to us all, they can share the knowledge of times gone by.

 When I leave surroundings like this one, I try to bring a little of that feeling back with me. I can feel the connectedness around my house and around town but it's not as strong. It is there though, that Scared feeling that we all belong....  We just have to learn to see with our hearts...

Blessings, Viv

The Path of Destiny

photo by Vivienne Moss

The paths we choose to take in life may not always be the easiest but most are the ones we are destined to take. We learn and grow from the mistakes we make and rejoice in those moments that everything falls into place. There are many things I could have done differently in my life but I have no regrets. To regret would mean to not like who I am now and I love who I have turned out to be. If it wasn't for the paths I chose to take I wouldn't have my daughters or the friends that are in my life.

My life has been truly blessed. I have family, friends, a great lover and most of all....Life. I wake every morning with a smile and a prayer of thankfulness. There are so many out there or have lost so much or who have had very little to begin with. The homeless, people in war zones (I could not imagine raising a child in a war zone,  the many who are out of work and struggling to feed their families.

When I am feeling down and wondering if I have made the right choices in life, I just close my eyes and think of all the wonderful and blissful moments that I have been blessed to experience.

I want to thank all my blogger friends who have wished me well and who have come back to visit my blog. I am very thankful for all of you.

May the paths you walk lead you to an enchanted life.

Blessings, Viv

Memento Mori

photo by Vivienne Moss

There is something about old grave yards that I just love. To read the names on the stones and the dates in which they lived and died makes me want to sit down and listen to the stories they have to tell. The death current is all around us. It's what makes us enjoy the moments we have on this plane of existence. We never know when it will be time for us to leave this world and join the Lands of the Dead. That is why I feel that we should on good terms with Mama and Papa Death and the spirits who aid them. Honoring our ancestors and living for the moment are just a couple of ways to gain favor from the Realm of the Dead.

While looking through Amazon for some new books to read, I stumbled upon what I think is a winner. Memento Mori edited by Kim Huggens. I have only read the introduction and I am in love with the book already. The book is an anthology on death and the Spirits connected with it
From the introduction: "Although the title of these anthologies is Memento Mori (Remember, you shall die), more rightly it should be subtitled 'Carpe Diem' (Seize the Day) for this is the effect that the awareness and engagement with the process of death and dying elicits in our modern pagan and occult thinkers."

"Whilst we cannot cheat death, in some way we can live so that we can laugh in its face."

I will give a full review of this delightful little e-book when I am done reading it. Until then, have a Blessed day and remember to enjoy the blissful moments in life.

I'm Back

After a long hiatus I am now back on blogger. Major computer problems and life's up and down moments have kept me away. I now have a new computer and life is looking up! I hope I can reconnect with all my blogger friends out there. I will be checking in on your blogs for the next few days to do some catching up.

I have added a new blog that will showcase my poetry. Life Enchanted can be located under the headed on this blog. The first poem, Aphrodite's Gift, is dedicated to my very own "Lumberjack". Please feel free to critique my poems. I am wanting to publish a book and would love input and comments on them.

Bright Blessings to all. I have missed you!!!!
