Mary Mary – quite Contrary

Not sure what it is, but perhaps the coming of Spring/Summertime, a change of circumstance;  Life and death – indeed it has been a bitter/ sweet last few months/years – but I know and can feel that something within me has changed. [Gosh!!!] .

A resurrection [ does that imply I have been a corpse??], a rebirth? [Ouch], not sure what to call it.  Maybe it’ not just me, but I can only talk personally-  there has been a shift, and I  feel that I am waking  up [it may not last – you know what someone sang about life being a Roller-coaster – but lets not go there. [phew!!]

I seemed to be on a roll… and I want to write and share… even if no one is listening.

I was looking at images for my previous blog – The Morning after the Night Before – and came across the wonderful poem – I have a fascination – some may say fetish for not only the Madonna [ The Virgin Mary/Mary, mother of Jesus] , but also for  Mary Magdalene.  What is even more inspiring is listing to the poet reading it … So I wanted to share it with you all… out there in the ether ….It is truly inspiring.
