Want to share this poem I wrote several years ago…..the first full moon of 2015 was spectacular last eve!!
I chased the moon tonight, or did the moon chase me?
Looking out my window, standing on tiptoe to see.
It begged me to come view it as it hid behind a tree.
So to the beach I hurried, to watch it rise above the sea.
Ducking behind a cloud swiftly moving left to right,
I watched its filtered glow on this clear and starry night.
Suddenly out upon the water, sparkling on the darkened sea,
A path called me to journey – to dance ‘tween the moon and me.

I love to shop for gifts – always have – even before there was a Marjorie’s. My gift drawer is full of special selections, gathered year-round, waiting for the right time to present. One thing I have learned about myself is that I love to give tiny gifts – either little in size or value – because they hold a smile or a memory that is larger than life. These small, but significant, treasures tell the recipient that an event was remembered or a wish was heard…Christmas stockings in my family are filled to overflowing with items such as these!
With that thought in mind, the homepage of this website has been redone to feature the tiniest item in my line. These four ornaments, all designed using my original art, could be the ideal gift for so many on your list. One of these selections could be your perfect tiny gift, representing so much more than the image it bears. Also know that these ornaments do not have to be an ornament – they can be displayed anywhere someone wishes to be reminded of what the gift represents to them – priceless tiny art.
Many treasures are wrapped from my gift drawer at the holidays, but it never empties…..
Bottomless Blessings from my home to yours,
Lighten the load
when to the beach we go.
Life there is calm
the daily pace is slow.
Out come our whites
shorts, swimsuits – sandals too!
Keep the look so simple
no time to fuss with shoes.
It really is quite lovely
Unencumbered time by the sea.
The beach bag is full of goodies
but only joy dwells in me!
I just returned from my 48th high school reunion in Moorestown, NJ. It was wonderful to see so many friends who were part of those special years. As we are all in our 60′s now, many retired, the conversations were focused on what people were doing with their lives – now. How lucky I felt on two fronts: to have embraced art in my life and to live by the sea. ”Art saves lives” my dear friend, Sue, likes to say and I add that being able to walk a beach breathes new life into a soul too. It was interesting to me that many of my classmates have also retreated to a coast, a river or a lake.
As I reflect on this reunion, may we all be forever young at heart, creative in spirit, interesting in thought, supportive in friendship and honest in our words. May the wisdom of our generation be appreciated and respected. The fifties and sixties were incredible years to experience, and gathered together as a class Saturday eve, they were honored once again. Those were good years.
Off to walk, or maybe dance, along the sandy shoreline of my life……………….Midge
Have you ever received a message,
In a bottle washed up on shore?
Now you will be the recipient of one,
Hopefully checking back here for more!
This “Message in a Bottle” blog
Is how I will reach out to you.
With who knows what I will write about,
But it will be funny, thoughtful and true.
