BEAUTY PERSONIFIED-WALES AND DA

Journal Entry: Fri May 20, 2016, 7:03 AM







Today I am thinking of two lovely ladies of Welsh heritage. As a child I grew up singing and hearing this lovely, but very difficult language..My parents met in Delta, Pa., which was known for slate and a church which continues to attract people from all over for their famous Welsh voice festivals. When the congregation sings you are lifted with its’ natural beauty. Today would have been my aunt’s birthday, so I dedicate this to her and her sister, my mom. Please listen to the music, it’s good for the heart. My thanks to the people who shared its’ beauty.

Perhaps the most famous is the

EISTEDDFOD

eisteddfod (Welsh: [ə(i)ˈstɛðvɔd], plural eisteddfodau Welsh: [ə(i)stɛðvɔdˈvɔdaɨ]) is a Welsh festival of literature, music and performance. The tradition of such a meeting of Welsh artists dates back to at least the 12th century, when a festival of poetry and music was held by Rhys ap Gruffydd of Deheubarth at his court in Cardigan in 1176, but the decline of the bardic tradition made it fall into abeyance. The current format owes much to an 18th-century revival arising out of a number of informal eisteddfodau. The closest English equivalent to eisteddfod is "session"; the word is formed from two Welsh morphemes: eistedd, meaning "sit", and bod, meaning "be".[1]

Welsh Quarrier Cottages

-In October of 2006, the Old Line Museum in Delta was able to purchase two original stone quarrymen's cottages built by the Welsh immigrants. 

-These cottages were used as housing by the early Welsh immigrants.

-They were built in the 1850's and they were used as housing for industrial workers.

-The cottages are located in rual South Eastern PA, near Delta.

-They are made out of the famous Peach Bottom slate.

- There are two rooms on each floor, the ceilings are higher, and the windows larger.

-Through the ongoing efforts of dedicated volunteers, and generous community support, restoration is underway in the first of these cottages to return it to the way it might have appeared in the mid-19th century. 

-The second cottage is severely damaged at one corner, and must be stablized before restoration can continue. 

-Two other cottages in the immediate area are privately owned.

-This much space would have been considered a luxury for a quarry worker in the 1850s. There housing was much like millitary barracks.

MOVING ON AND DA

Journal Entry: Fri May 13, 2016, 1:03 AM


P
                                       PEOPLE


Each day may be a struggle through this thing called “life”,

or a journey complete with lessons should we observe.

We invite, or different people saunter into our travels,

perhaps they will never leave, more often most move on.


As humans we often view the world  quite differently,

those who open their minds succeed in their quests.

The haters remain locked behind their walls, wallowing.

Unaware life is a blessing, perhaps their eyes are opened.


As one of this army, each day was a battle,

until unconditional love accepted me warts and all.

We deserve this, never deny anyone, it’s not your life.

Able to move on,  it was time to live,  peace.

WHY CAN’T PEOPLE JUST GET ALONG,

QUESTION THE WORDS THEY MISUNDERSTOOD

CLEAR UP THE MESS NO ONE MEANT TO MAKE.

FIND WHAT’S SPECIAL, ACCEPT WHAT THEY CAN?

DON’T , “THROW THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATH WATER.”

THE JUDGES AREN’T PERFECT, THAT’S WHY THEY JUDGE.

REMOVE THEM FROM YOUR MIND, JUST BREATHE…….

MOVE ON, MOVE ON, MOVE ON……………….

NATURE ON DA

The Way Through The Woods

By Rudyard Kipling 

THEY shut the road through the woods
Seventy years ago.
Weather and rain have undone it again,
And now you would never know
There was once a path through the woods
Before they planted the trees:
It is underneath the coppice and heath,
And the thin anemones.
Only the keeper sees
That, where the ring-dove broods
And the badgers roll at ease,
There was once a road through the woods.

Yet, if you enter the woods
Of a summer evening late,
When the night-air cools on the trout-ring’d pools
Where the otter whistles his mate
(They fear not men in the woods
Because they see so few),
You will hear the beat of a horse’s feet
And the swish of a skirt in the dew,
Steadily cantering through
The misty solitudes,
As though they perfectly knew
The old lost road through the woods ...
But there is no road through the woods.




Thank-you- by vafiehya

SUMPTUOUS TALISMAN
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sumptuous talisman
of mellifluous verse
join me under
splendor of
evening sky.
Alas your light
does not shine anon.
My journey will
transport this being
to a land where
halcyon dreams
are fulfilled
join my journey
should desire consume.

You said, remember that life is
Not meant to be wasted
We can always be chasing the sun!
So fill up your lungs and just run
But always be chasing the sun!

All we can do is try
And live like we’re still alive
I can't believe it. I spent the day at the hospital supporting a family member who was having surgery. Got him home safely and fell down the concrete porch steps. Why do I hurt more now than when it happened?
Two places that mellow me out. Today I have to be up at six to sit and wait through another person's cancer surgery. I'm a bit stressed. This music came to me.

I feel no pain here

Pass it on;
'Twas not given for thee alone,
Pass it on;
Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe anothers' tears,
'Til in Heaven the deed appears -
Pass it on.

I should finish my stacks, I'm very grateful for the faves, answered the others.

After fibromyalgia kicked me in the butt, ending my active career, sitting around the house made me nuts.

If you want to talk garbage about another person, go elsewhere.
I'LL TALK THINGS OUT WHEN SOMEONE IS WILLING. IF NOT, I DON'T NEED THE GRIEF.
LUCILA'S QUOTE- BE KIND, BE KIND, BE KIND by Henry James is a great idea.
HALF ITALIAN, I'M NOT THE CALMEST PERSON, BUT GREW UP A LONG TIME AGO.
Desire to be noticed isn't jealousy, it's normal. Telling someone how I felt taught me more about them than me.

life quote photo: Inspirational Quote wise_and_inspirational_quotes_14.jpg

“Reputation is what others think of us; character is what God knows of us. When you have spent what feels like eternity trying to repair a few moments of time that destroyed the view others once had of you then you must ask yourself if you have the problem or is it really them? God doesn’t make us try so hard, only enemies do.”
