When the Sun Smiles Upside Down

Have you ever looked up at the sun and notice that it was smiling upside down? There is a new saying today, that goes along with that.

You knew that, right?  

It goes like this:




“When you see the sun,
smile upside down,
It is time to take,
a look-around”

Well, that happened to me, just the other day! I am forever looking up when I am outside. That is when I saw the sun, smile upside down.

So I stopped and took a look-around.

Not at the ground and nowhere ‘out-there’ was I looking.
I stopped and looked within me. I know that I hold all my answers. We all hold our own answers. Everything is within.

When I stopped and took time for me, I discovered my heart was out of balance. Those of you who have read my writings, you know that my heart is what guides me in my world. I listen to my heart, before my brain.

I was surprised to find that Drama and Stress were creeping back into my world.

My world had become a carousel.
Up and down;
Round and round
while I attempted to paint the pretty ponies.

I  amble along the foggy mountainside, absorbing nature’s symphony … with delivery of a post in mind.

And when it comes down to it….

The sun is glaring and staring at me, with a certain form of shimmer, as if to say, “Get on with it ALL ready. You KNOW what you must do!”

I do know!

It is time to shift that energy right now and ‘re-balance’ my heart.

In doing so, I am discovering:

  1. I need to re-organize a few things in my world.
  2. I am taking a summer/fall break from blogging
  3. I must now go…
    Go where?
    Towards that which started out as a casual encounter and has manifested into…. how shall I say?…. a calling
  4. “Toto? I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore . . .”

“I will be back in a jiffy,” yet, I am not sure that would be so.

For what drives me forward on my new adventure… is perhaps moxie. I hold in my heart, what I feel and know I must do.

“I truly have no words to describe,
this beautiful journey I hold inside”

My ‘move away from posting’ will not leave me dormant.

  • I will post and/or re-blog on occasion
  • I now have more time to interact with your posts, which I miss doing.

I am semi-active right now August 2017
I will be around

Love life!

  1. Interesting post. Believe it or not, similar thoughts have been running through my head. I love blogging but…..let’s face it, there are only so many hours in a day and when you are retired and getting on in years, you begin to wonder what else could I be doing with my time. I may be posting a similar message shortly. Who knows, I may even discover a new passion. Later!

  2. Thanx for your comment and being honest with yourself. I am elated that I have inspired you.
    I can believe that you have been having similar thoughts. Bet many of us are.
    I love blogging, but I LOVE ME more and will do what makes me happy.
    Why not????
    Everything is changing. Especially us humans and our perception of ….. everything.
    I know that when I do what I love…. when I follow my heart…. when I explore my passions…. I am in bliss – my heart is happy and balanced – and time stands still. I fully believe, we stop aging when we experience those moments of doing what we love. Literally!
    I will keep posting, but only when I am nudged to do so.


  3. “I need to re-organize a few things in my world.”

    I really agree with you on that. I’m trying to organize my life to find time for all the things that matter. And I do hope that blogging will be a part of it. Because I have grown to love this community.

    Thank you for sharing this post with me. I feel like I have a companion in this rocky road of life. You’re always a breath of fresh air, Ren. (virtual hug)
