Me

The title for this blog is taken, with the slightest modification, from the middle of a Wordsworth poem. That section reads:

–He who, though thus endued as with a sense
And faculty for storm and turbulence,
Is yet a Soul whose master-bias leans
To homefelt pleasures and to gentle scenes;
Sweet images! which, wheresoe’er he be,
Are at his heart; and such fidelity
It is his darling passion to approve;
More brave for this, that he hath much to love:–

If you wish, you can find the complete text of “The Happy Warrior” here. It’s a poem that, in my youth, captivated me. I even memorized it and decided to recite it to my parents around the dinner table one night.

Thank you for visiting!

Here are links to my FACEBOOK and TWITTER accounts.

Take care and have a great day.

    • He IS aptly named, isn’t he? It’s so interesting when someone’s name comes to fit their life’s work. Makes me wonder if it had an influence on his early interest in words. I’m glad you enjoyed the piece.

    7 THINGS ABOUT ME!

    1-I am very grateful that I was born…”to Be…for this Yahweh created all.” Wisdom 1:14 —this about the only Biblical numerical reference I know! When in the convent, I would reference the Bible with: “Somewhere in the Bible, it says…” LOL

    2-I try to be remain open to love, the gift of friendship –I have been blessed with GOOD FRIENDS!

    3-I am so grateful for every day of my life – even the days I struggle – those days help me to grow and to be empathetic towards others and I do realize that most people are fighting some kind of battle…either internally or externally each day.

    4-I am so grateful for Lara, Annie and Sara–my three lovely daughters–and my precious grandchildren–Ayden and Nadia. I am grateful for the many friends that have enriched my life!

    5-I try to live compassion.

    6-I love to laugh! I love to make other people laugh and smile…and realize I should put more joy in my writing, which tends to be quite serious.

    7-I loved to teach [36 years]…I miss it greatly…my students enriched my life so much…and now I am transitioning into being a writer…a painter on canvas…and a better lover of myself and humankind in our ocean of water-life~!

    My wish for all of my friends and fellow bloggers on WordPress, continued success in your writing…and our mutual desire to be with one another through our words…to write words to share who we are…to bring us all closer to truth, love and to each other in our world of water bubbles!
