Seeking quietude & thank you’s!

Seeking Nirvana 🙂

Just to give a sign of presence after a small pause between posts!
I have tried to like & comment as much as possible but find it hard to get on WordPress every day as I did previously.
It has been hectic lately here & feel in dire need of quietude.
Winter is usually a time where one slows down a bit, keeping more indoors, weather being the major cause but apparently this year was a bit of an exception.
I wanted to express my deepest gratitude again & always for the constant faithfulness of my followers, likes & comments throughout my rather inadequate ubeity 🙂

Slowly returning from the woods & thank you’s!

Slowly coming out of the woods…

I am back but… there’s always a but isn’t there 🙂
Seriously, repairing a laptop means I am losing skydrive in my favorites which makes it impossible to retrieve photos so I needed the help of a connoisseur who would figure out the intricacies of our obscure (in my eyes at least!) world of technology.
I am still not completely out of the woods, my laptop is not one hundred percent up to its previous state of work but it’s faster & functioning better the rest are details which I hope will slowly get looked after with a lot of patience from my part & those always coming to my rescue!
Thanks for your patience, sticking with me through thick & thin, your commiseration & support through the likes & comments all along.
I will be posting hopefully today, a poem that I’ve been working on while all this was happening…

Celebrating my 500th post!

This is for YOU!
©copyright2014owpp

As I published last post I received in my WordPress-new-post this!
I had not realized I was up to 500 posts & just wanted to share with
all of you this milestone 🙂
When I created this blog I never dreamed of ever getting here…
I wanted to let you know that without all your positive feedback
and encouragement I sincerely wouldn’t have been here writing this!

So, a big THANK YOU goes to each and every one of you for your constant
support, patience & help when crises arose.

Celebrating five hundred followers!

Your favorite color …. The color I most relate to and relax with is blue
Your favorite animal … Dolphins & horses are at the top of my list but I could easily include some more

Summer is here full swing and I am going to take time with my family. I’ll be going on liking and reading your post which I always enjoy… They give me time to learn, ponder and collect a load of useful information.

I am thankful and very grateful to have found such a wonderful bunch of creative bloggers!
I will still post but only when it won’t take me away from my family.

Thanks and enjoy the sunshine!

A big thank you!

I truly appreciate and thank you for the trust you have shown me in these past four
months by becoming followers.

When I started to blog I never dreamed of reaching any numbers. I did not know anything
about it, therefore had no ambitions linked to it and still do not have any, I am always
surprised when I see the numbers adding up…

Now, I have reached 4,354 views, 464 comments… I do not know how it came about. I am
truly thankful and happy my work is of interest to a generous, kind, very artistically
talented and gifted crowd.

Thank you again 🙂

Celebrating the 200th post today!

This blog’s birth date was on the 6th of September 2012, that’s a bit more than four months,

and I realized as I posted a painting today, the round number of 200!!

It feels good to have reached that far and wanted to share it with you all.

I am taking this opportunity to thank you for liking, sometimes helping, commenting…

in short, taking an interest in my works.

There is a whole load of talent out there and I value your professional opinion.

To the mothers of the world 1989 ( English Poem with its French original text too )

©copyright2013owpp

This poem from 1989 differs by one word only. Instead of ” example of courage ” I changed it to ” model of courage. ”
As you can see, the sketch is brand new, made among a collection of three others, on the newborn-mother Theme.
This poem is dedicated to the beauty in all mothers, especially those that surround me and teach me lessons of
courage, dedication and selflessness on a daily basis.

Thank you!

To the mothers of the world
—————————-

Mother divine
Mother sublime
Mother of kindness
Mother of generosity

Model of courage
Love and sharing
You are the heart
Of a beautiful flower

We are the petals
Very small petals
Attached forever
To our revered queen

Mother of kindness
For having given so much
Mother of generosity
Without ever counting

Mother divine
Simply divine
Mother sublime
You are the tip of the peaks

Thank you,

For every instant
For every moment
Of happiness experienced
In our childhood of gaiety

Aux mères du monde

Mère divine
Mère sublime
Mère bonté
Mère générosité

Modèle de courage
Amour et partage
Tu es le coeur
D’une très belle fleur

Nous sommes les pétales
De tous petits pétales
Attacher à tout jamais
A notre reine vénérée

Mère bonté
Pour avoir tant donné
Mère générosité
Sans jamais compter

Mère divine
Tout simplement divine
Mère sublime
Tu es le bout des cimes

Merci,

Pour chaque instant
Pour chaque moment
De bonheur éprouver
Dans notre enfance de gaité
