One Shot Wednesday :My "Shadorma"

This is my first time participating in One shot Wednesday hosted by Claudia. I am as shy with my poetry as I am with my art...but I thought,why not?I'm giving it a shot! This is a "Shadorma".A shadorma poem is just a six-line stanza that is ruled by syllables. line 1: 3 syllables line 2: 5 syllables line 3: 3 syllables line 4: 3 syllables line 5: 7 syllables line 6: 5 syllables Here we goooo!

 "Please hear me
There’s so much to say
Shut me out
Turn away
Your eyes close my voice rises
now only silence"

This speaks a lot about my feelings tonight... Thank you for stopping by!

Virgin aday:A Prayer to Guadalupe

I've missed 2 days of posting for the "Virgin a Day" meme hosted by the wonderful Rebecca . I have been feeling quite under the weather this week.Last night I started feeling worse and now I  guess have a full blown virus. =( Since I've  still had to  go to work through all this, I've been keeping hydrated & medicated. I didn't want to miss today's post so I'm keeping it simple. A Prayer To Guadalupe: We greet thee and adore thee, Oh Guadalupe Heavenly Rose, Mystical Rose, of Tepeyac Hill. May thy fragrance bless our souls, so sweet is thy savor, Most Beauteous Rose. Thine , too , is the power . Give it to us women , who are thy daughters. Blessed art Though through all eternity.
Taken from my book:
"Magic From Mexico" by Mary Devine ,PH.D. Have a blessed night!

Today is my second post on :"Virgin a Day " in honor  of Our lady of Guadalupe. I was browsing around the web and found all sorts of folk art with Guadalupe as the theme.I decided to  make a photo collage of my findings. People are so creative!I am feeling inspired!As a matter of fact I have a pencil drawing I made of La Virgencita.Maybe I'll work up the courage to post it! I'm shy about some of my so called art!lol
I am so enjoying this meme and all the awesome posts thanks to Rebecca  and all the participants
Til tomorrow!.

A virgin a Day: Our Lady of Guadalupe

I found this meme being hosted by Rebecca over at It's called  "A Virgin A Day", celebrating the 12 days in December that lead up to the feast day of Our lady of Guadalupe." I knew the second I saw this I would participate even if I'm a little late.I have always loved Guadalupe. I am Mexican American & was fortunate enough to visit la Basílica of Guadalupe, in Mexico City, where the miraculous image of la Virgen Morena is kept. I grew up Catholic and I was to taught to revere la virgen. As an adult I have come to embrace Goddess spirituality.I see Our lady of Guadalupe as the great Mother Goddess. When I pray she is the image in my mind.  Rebecca describes this meme: "This is not so much about religion, as it is about sharing a common thread. rejoicing in our sameness with light, beauty, inspiration, thoughtful regard. I suspect humor and charm will make strong appearances too. it is about sharing favorite images, art, photographs, stories…

Inspiration Tuesay: DESIDERATA

This is one of my favorite poems.I try to live my life by these words: "DESIDERATA" By Mr.Max Ehrmann

Receive an Amazing Sense of Inner Peace as the Desiderata Poem Goes from Your Head and Into Your Heart Through repetition, new valuable ideas will become a part of who you are. The Timeless Words of the Desiderata Poem: Desiderata Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself to others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise cauti…

It's been a tough week...haven't had a chance to blog or do much of anything else! No matter here I am now!
Next week will be another rough one.My work schedule will be kind of nuts.What's been making it all the more challenging is the current diet I am on!My cousin did it and she was so excited she bought and sent me the HCG drops to try.The thing is you have to follow a "Very Low Calorie" diet while taking these drops:Only 500 calories.It's crazy!Yeah,I'll admit if I start feeling woozy I eat a little something to make me feel better.Can't let my glucose levels get too crazy with this diabetes.Any how...this diet is killing me!!!I have been on green smoothie challenges where all I've had for 10 days was liquids,and that was tough,but I am finding this quite the challenge! This is how I feel:

Anyway....I am going to go through with this.This phase ends at the end of November for me.Then I do the next phase for 3 weeks then rest for  another 3 weeks …
