Happy Sunday, friends. Today I am sharing a few photos to give you an idea of the spectacular beauty in which I am so fortunate to be living. There is so much inspiration here for creative folk, with which the village abounds: writers, painters, photographers, sculptors, carvers, dreamers - all gather here and feast their senses in this dramatic and ever-changing landscape.
Menina is a friend's dog; I walk her on the beach often, since I am so bereft, living as a dogless person, that I have to borrow dogs. Smiles.
Our countdown to the end of October is upon us. It feels surreal that this is my next-to-last Pantry. Be sure to scroll back if you missed Friday's feature: Magaly hosted one of her interactive Moonlight Musings, on the topic of change. Smiles. Plenty of that around!
On Monday, we will get to know Lori Ryan a little better, in my Life of a Poet series. Do stop by and leave her some words of welcome to our community. On Wednesday, the theme of Sumana's Midweek Motif will be Forgiveness. We look forward to reading your poems in response.
And for my final Friday feature, at the end of the week, I am showcasing British Columbia spoken word maestro Shane Koyczan, in what is perhaps his most popular poem: To the Bullied and Beautiful. We hope you enjoy it.
For now, it is Sunday. Coffee, hot, poems, at the ready. You know what to do! Let's dive in!
Good morning, friends! It is midnight here and I am reading late. It is lovely to see you here. Looking forward to your poems.ReplyDelete
Good morning, poets. And now to bed!ReplyDelete

Here I am from a rainy Sweden... still good for a morning run. I will be back to read later in the afternoon.ReplyDelete
It's raining here today, too. Goody, an indoor day for me!Delete
Hot coffee and hot poems--what could be better? :)ReplyDelete
Incredible photographs, Sherry … just beautiful. Thanks so much for posting them.ReplyDelete
Love the photos Sherry! They are spectacular!! I am glad you live in a place so inspiring and beautiful. 🤩(I am delighted to have actually made it to poetry pantry this week! I work some on Sundays so it may be this evening before I can visit everyone.)ReplyDelete
Lovely to see you, Carrie. I'm glad everyone is enjoying the photos. I was at the beach yesterday - BIG waves, lots of surfers, ecstatic dogs. And me, feasting my eyes. Smiles.Delete
Sounds wonderful Sherry!🤩Delete
Spectacular pictures. Like Björn I'm in the rain and gray, so I let the weather lead my muse. :-)ReplyDelete
Yes, wonderful photos. You do indeed live in a place of spectacular beauty!ReplyDelete

Sherry, these photos are wonderful! They all look like the kind of postcards that conjure up smiles and happy sighs. Thank you so much for sharing them with us!ReplyDelete
Great photos, Sherry! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Good day, everyone!
Good morning, all. Sherry, you have brought me memories of a few weeks ago when I gazed upon these scenes in person. I love those low hanging clounds keeping watch over you and Menina!ReplyDelete
Hi - I tried to comment on your poem -- twice. Both times my comment would not post and I got some kind of message (403 Forbidden - in large letters) and I could not leave a comment. I do hope you see this message.Delete
Thank you for letting me know, Mary! I had some technical problems worked on in the last few days, and it seems whenever one thing gets fixed, something else malfunctions. I appreciate you leaving this message. I just sent a message off to the tech person who's been helping me. Have a great Sunday!Delete
I remember. It was so great walking Chestermans with you. Yesterday I picked Cox Bay. The waves have been huge, due to the typhoon in Japan.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful Pantry this morning! It's a veritable feast!ReplyDelete
A sunny Sunday afternoon is a perfect time to read! Coffee in hand. Your photos are beautiful Sherry. I could use the shushing of a wave or two.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos Sherry. sigh. To be around such beauty all of the time is like a dream come true. I will be along later to read and comment.ReplyDelete
I am so lucky! I am grateful every day. Beauty like this will never be taken for granted.ReplyDelete
