Romantic Fall Date Ideas

Daily thought:


What's the first romantic thought that pops into your head today (late autumn, early winter)?

I think Spanish Guitar music is relaxing to listen to but it is probably even creates the right ambience for a romantic evening.


"Autumn Romance"

Leaves rustle past our feet
as we walk along
our hands are folded together
like a lover's embrace
we stop for awhile and I look
into his face
He says nothing, but his eyes do
They tell me that he loves me
and I know that it's true

Sitting on a park bench

Daily thought:


The coveted seat.

When was the last time you sat on a park bench and thought deeply about your day?

It's so easy to let your imagination run with you as you sit on a park bench...

One prompt to write a short story or journal is:

What happens next?

How do you react?

Park Bench poems

Chase Hunter
Mar 30
Sitting on this small park bench
waiting in the winds while the trees undress
I look for a path that could change the past

All the words I speak are just continuous ideas I seek
Planning out my future like I am supposed to know who to be

Sitting on a park bench with the Autumn leaves
conversing with myself of what I actually want and need

Well I will truly never know until I succeed
but success is just an optimist of serenity
and sometimes even greed

So for now I will just sit on this park bench
with the calm and cooling breeze
Just being happy that I am me

Oh, Acorn Park
Do you miss us there by your heart?
Where are your old trees and bench
That beckoned us way back then?
Now you've a stone surround.
No matter ~ new lovers will come
Your spring shines with silver spangled light
That is best when week's end is nigh.

Sitting on the park bench,
looking out at the pond,
where the ducks
roam freely.

I think back to
the blunt we shared
on this very bench.

And I wonder...
why I was only granted

Adam's ribs 'created' woman and the sense of obligation

Daily thought:


There's the story of one of Adam's ribs being used to 'create' woman and this makes for a sense of obligation from one to the other - yet there seems to be a backlash of retaliations, retorts and disrespect.

Helping everyone is a good. daily thought.

Life is a bridge don't build a house on it

Daily thought:


Fallen leaves and a bridge conjures up thoughts of care and caution!

Yet when we make that crossing, it means we get to see the other side!

(Fake Buddha

Crossing the Bridge

I walk the twisting, turning road,
A dream fills up my heart.
My backpack holds its heavy load
Placed there at the start.

I climb the ever steep’ning hills,
Exhaustion takes it toll.
Anticipating endless thrills
And company for my soul.

At last it looms ahead of me,
The bridge that I must cross.
And once across, what will I be?
And can I bear the loss?

Once there I see the other side,
But what now holds me back?
Can it be my foolish pride,
Or worse yet, what I lack?

I throw the backpack on the ground
And leave it laying there,
Knowing now that what I’ve found
Has worth without compare.

The rest is easier than I thought,
A destiny fulfilled.
Finding what I long have sought,
All inhibitions stilled.

Now a smile lights up my face,
Contentment fills my soul.
I crossed the bridge and found my place,
The place that makes me whole.

Beauty and the feast by Redwood National and State Parks (NPS)

Daily thought:

(NPS photo: G Litten)

The photo reminds me of colour co-ordination and how we can use this idea in decorating a room.

Feng Shui, which I have never really thought about, comes to mind and although it may not be for everybody, the colour co-ordination ideas can be useful in deciding what colours to use in a room and where to place furniture to make it light and spacious.

Pick Best Feng Shui Colors for Your Home:

I have heard of Feng Shui for the home but never really though much about it before - the link above shows some interesting colour combination for the home.

Feng Shui according to Google, means:
feng shui
ˌfɛŋ ˈʃuːi,ˌfʌŋ ˈʃweɪ/
noun: feng shui; noun: fengshui
  1. (in Chinese thought) a system of laws considered to govern spatial arrangement and orientation in relation to the flow of energy (chi), and whose favourable or unfavourable effects are taken into account when siting and designing buildings.
Feng Shui is not for everyone but I think the colour co-ordination ideas can be useful in planning a room decor.
