“Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.”

― Muhammad Ali

I was surprised when one of my closest friends, told me she would be moving… to the same area as my daughter, a few states away. Spending the day with my friend, Patricia – laughing, talking, shopping, eating, driving, beaching, selfie-ing, sight-seeing, and reminiscing, made for an extraordinary day. Life is full of surprises! Thank you for visiting and viewing! Be well. 💗 Michele

I am listening to a talk on “Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women” on Twitter right now. Join us! http://Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women I am honored to have my poetry included in this anthology.

Yesterday’s post, “Dancing with Dragonflies” marked my 200th post (June 3rd). 🎉

  1. I recognize this area! It’s my favorite spot on Planet Earth–Heceta Head Lighthouse! I lived in Salem, OR for a while in the mid-’90s and fell in love with the coast. It’s gorgeous beyond words. What a pleasant surprise this morning to see the lighthouse in your post. Thanks for this, Michele–it made my day. 🙂

    1. That is fantastic, Mike. Thank you for sharing! It is a gorgeous and inspiring area. I love being here, especially with AZ temps reaching over 100 degrees next week. 😢 What a beautiful lighthouse – I was told by a local merchant that it is the most photographed lighthouse in the world. I can neither confirm nor deny this. You might know. I am so honored to have made your day. I hope it only gets better! 😁

    1. How right you are! It is expected to reach 109 degrees on the day I return. 😢 Maybe I can spend the entire summer with my daughter. She would love that! 😉😂 Thank you very much, Dawn! I am honored and look forward to publication date. I am enjoying the talk about the project and cover illustration.

    1. I cherish my visits to this part of the country. It has been raining for two days – I don’t mind at all. 😄 I imagine your lighthouse photos are gorgeous! Long-time friends are a gift. I am blessed to have several close friends from my childhood. Life may take us in different directions, but we have remained close and get together on occasion. 💞 I am glad you like the quote – it is a good one! Thank you very much! Wishing you safe travels and continued nature inspirations.

    1. Much gratitude for you, Jaya. Thank you for mentioning that! I don’t pay attention to those things until WP alerts me. 😆 How right you are! I saw that “200” notice and had similar thoughts… thinking about my first few blog posts, where I was (emotionally) during that time and how much has changed in my life since then, often reflected in my writing. Nothing is perfect, but WP is a nice platform that allows us to create, express, and connect with other creatives. 💖 Publication day will be a celebration and yes, it will be wonderful to celebrate that experience together! 💞

  6. Ah! What a lovely video, Michele. I’ve not been to Florence, yet it looks beautiful, like the rest of the Oregon Coast. What a fun trip; and while you escaped the heat, I’m ready to plunge into the heat. 😁 🌞🕶 The event this morning was a blast, such an honor to share that space with all of you. 💖🌳✨

    1. Thanks, Jeff! I had fun living and creating it! 😁 Florence is a lovely beach town – several shops, art shops, and restaurant options. All of that and an ocean nearby… not too bad! Escaping to the heat – an hour in Phoenix and you might reconsider. haha I get it – feels like winter temps here. haha Yes, the Wounds I Healed – Strong Women discussion was a treat! You did a fine job! 👏🏻 The collection is sure to be amazing! 💖🌳✨

      1. You’re welcome, Michele! Always. I’ve visited several of the beach towns on the Oregon coast, and they all have their own special charm. Love them all. Hahaha! You’re right about the heat in Phoenix for sure. 😅 The discussion was great. Oh, thank you, it was a lot of fun. Ah, the collection will be amazing! So excited to read it! 💖🌳✨

  7. What a wonderful video, Michelle – took a look at your “refound” old friend, coffee-nerds always have a place in my heart. 😀 Even before become teenager so Muhammad Ali always have been fascinating to me – not so much about boxing. But that great person behind the boxer. 🙂

    1. Thanks a million, LDN! I appreciate your comment and time. 😊 Thanks too, for checking out Patricia’s IG page. She is quite the coffee connoisseur, across multiple states. ☕ Patricia and I have remained close through the years – never lost. My bit about being surprised by her move was a bit off. I caught that this morning and rewrote that sentence. Thank you for reading!! 🙏🏻 I feel the same about Ali. ✨Have a wonderful day!
