Monday Night Football is a good time to dig out your medicine cabinet, dump it, go through it during the commercials and pitch anything that is expired or that you don’t use anymore. Swipe for before the tweak.
The flag of Saudi Arabia was adopted in 1973. The Arabic inscription on the flag, written in the calligraphic Thuluth script, is the shahada or Islamic declaration of faith. The green of the flag represents Islam and the sword stands for the strictness in applying justice. The flag is manufactured with identical obverse and reverse sides, to ensure the shahada reads correctly, from right to left, from either side. The sword points to the left on both sides, in the direction of the script. #country#saudiarabia#culture#flag
If a woodchuck could, would he climb a tree? Yes! This fella has been making appearances around the local farms. Or maybe its a herd of them we all are seeing! He was teasing my dogs & when I came around the corner he headed for the tree. Probably thought I had a dog with me. I had never seen one in the wild before. Kind of fun! #countrylife#woodchuck#wildlife#country#cowgirl
As I set here in Harper's Ferry, West Virginia, it's raining. I'm rocking in a chair that my great-grandfather made, writing on a 21st century typewriter and dreaming of California. I dream the sun never stops smiling there in California, and the musicians always have a place to stay and something warm to eat. Hot cups of coffee and cool cream to pour, dusky brown to khaki.
I write because I live. I sing because I have a voice. I dance because I feel the music in my feet.
I feel the heartbeat of thousands of my Appalachian ancestors who brought me here today. I hear the bubbling of the trees sucking up the river water with miles-long straws. The vibration of the hummingbird--one thousand beats per minute, can you believe it?
My life is to tell these stories, my own stories, the only story I know. And I promise you, up here on the mountain, it's not too lonely.
