Hearts Ache and Flourish

WordPress was the first outlet which allowed me to write and connect with a range of people from different walks of life.  The journey has been beautiful and I have made great friends through my writing.

In the past few weeks I started shared my writing on Instagram and I am loving the vibe and various connections made with people from near and far.  It fills me with elation to write, share and meet people with the same passion.

I love connecting with my readers, so please follow me on Instagram and Facebook or drop me an e-mail curlymiriblog@gmail.com 

If you have any requests, suggestions or feedback please do not hesitate to contact me.

This piece relates to an experience I had of when I loved someone who was once mine but he fell in love with someone else.  I do not regret loving him or this experience.  There is always a valuable lesson to be learned.

This piece relates to my first love.  He was once mine but he fell in love with a stranger while we were at a party.  I guess my naive state of mind believed our love was real and would last forever. I do not regret loving him or this experience. There is always a valuable lesson in such experiences.  In this instance, do not fall in love with a Hanson lookalike.

I attended the funeral of a sweet 8 year old boy who fought a courageous battle with cancer. I can't make sense of why children are taken so soon. The parent's eulogies were uplifting and spoke of a son who never complained throughout his treatment, who in the end comforted them in their pain. This boy lived a full and meaningful life and has left a large footprint in the hearts of many. His strength of character is admirable and motivating to the human essence. Young man you have given me hope for my own path in my life, thank you. • I became overwhelmed with emotion at the cemetery when I glanced at his mother who displayed an immense sense of grief. I closed my eyes and in the distance I could hear her deep whimpering and it broke my heart. • Love your loved ones with all that you are. Say and do all that you want to do. Life is precious.

I wrote this after thinking of the the very first time I saw and touched snow, a beautiful memory.

Shatter

Sometimes you can’t help who you love, even if that love has the ability to destroy you, it is the only way you feel you can survive. That feeling inspired this piece.

Love & laughter,

Heart of the Hurricane by Nancy Wolfe Kimberly

Heart of the Hurricane by Nancy Wolfe Kimberly

Nancy Wolfe Kimberly, a brilliant artist and reader of my blog from New Orleans, Louisiana sent me this stunning piece as a housewarming gift.  It made me appreciate the connection between bloggers/writers and readers.  I hope one day to visit your shores and give you a big hug.  The Heart of the Hurricane is on our living room wall. Mister and I love this piece and we’ve received so many compliments.  Thank you, Nancy. You’re beautiful!

Be sure to check out Gator Girl Art.  Nancy has a wonderful range of art via Facebook and Etsy.  Her art will add a touch of color and beauty to your home.

Beautiful piece by Nancy Wolfe Kimberly has found a special place in our home.

A recent addition to our living room.  Our "Samoan Corner" features a Fue and To'oto'o, used by talking chiefs.  The Kava Bowl is used in Samoan ceremonies accompanied by three carved Naifi (knives/axes).

Mister and I enjoyed a vacation in Samoa.  We were happy to see family and enjoy mango season (my favorite fruit).  Samoa is a special place for us as we are both of Samoan descent and it is the place we first met as mentioned in this post.

We spent a day deep in the forest of Utualii preparing food using a traditional cooking method known as an Umu, an earth oven.  This practice is commonly used in Polynesia.  Mister was happy going back to his roots and we enjoyed the company of his siblings with a few bottles of Vailima.

I have recently discovered, Rekordelig.  A gorgeous cider made in Sweden.  So delicious with lots of fruit.
