my dandelion state of mind

A life changing moment just the day before…

taking me back to my childhood days;

and like the dandelion…I let go of the old…to start something new.

flourishing in my descent.

  1. Beautiful photo with words to match. Great to know there are so many women shining bright in the world.


  2. lol, snap! I love dandelions too and they do exactly the same for me, take me back to childhood days! Now as I am older I find them to be beautiful photo models. I did a similar post a while back. I am never sure if there is some unwritten blogging rule about not posting links on someone else’s page but I hope you don’t mind. I just thought it parallels yours so nicely!

    1. Thanks Cindy! You have inspired me, as well. I am very interested in learning how to publish a book. I have many ideas…all in my head. Not sure where to even start. I would love to exchange emails so you could guide me. 🙂 If you are on Face Book, maybe we could hook up there.

  6. Nice, nice, nice, Laura. I loved the way you breathed life into a blend of melodic words and a beautiful flourishing plant to engulf the past and light up a hopeful future. I wish you a blissful start and hope you would grow from strength to strength.

    1. Thanks Paul! Moving from my home state a few years ago has opened my eyes and heart. Letting go of friendships and the familiarity was difficult but my “faith” in God always gets me through. But this time, I will forever remember me actually embracing the moment and moving on! Thanks for always hanging around to read something from my little world! 🙂
