Exercise Becoming Quest Walks by MiMi

Exercise Becoming Quest Walks

I'm inspired! Love the shoes! Can't see the condominium though. Can you post a large picture? Camille

Hi There, We working on enlarging the photo, hold please....

What an awesome inspirational story!!!

What a sweet and beautiful story! We can still find nice and honest people in this world! :D

I love the stories, Mimi you're an awesome story teller! Community always encourages me. It seems you have a folk dancing community that extends to the Czech Republic! It's interesting that our communities have gone from being our neighborhoods to our areas of interest. I've been privileged to be in a community of home birth friends years ago and now in community with my church and Christians around the world. Connection, love and honoring each other makes life so much richer. Love you!

I tried to make this comment twice. I had a couple of things to say about community and the Czech Republic but now I'm just going to say awesome story MiMi. Love you!

Just a Normal Day Full of Miracles by MiMi

Just a Normal Day Full of Miracles

Speaking my sadness to a listening ear

No words – but comfort – how does it appear?
A gash that heals without even a trace,
A spider web spun much finer than lace –
Just a normal day full of miracles.
Time for geese to fly north. How do they know?
Hummingbirds going clear to Mexico –
What tells a mustard seed [...]
