Have you ever sat and watched the clouds,
As they went floating by.
Just laid down flat upon the grass,
And looked up to the sky.
Have you ever watched a butterfly,
The color of its wings.
Have you ever really listened
To how a Robin sings.
Have you ever wandered in the rain,
The drops fell on your face.
Just took delight in how it felt,
No hurry…slowed your pace.
Have you ever sat down on the beach,
And let your thoughts run free.
And closed your eyes,
And felt the wind,
Happy…just to be!

The lights in The Apple House are on most evenings, a yellow glow shines through the window on to the walk way leading to the front door and if you listen, you just might be the first to hear a new verse or two being whispered to my Aunt Nan. Don’t worry, she won’t keep it to herself…she loves to share!
I re-vamped this yard sale foot stool for her as a studio warming gift. It rests at the foot of her comfy red and white checked wing back chair in The Apple House!
Aunt Nan tells me it's just right for propping up her feet and daydreaming!
What inspirations,whispers, or LOUD knockings have you LISTENED to lately? It's never too late to follow the tug of your heart!
