Thanks for the Gift of Life!!

Creations of the heart are blooming like flowers in the field.

The wonders of nature are entwined everywhere.

My spirit overflows. Footprints of the piper are sealed

In the pristine dunes while the echo of the wind

Unfolds whispering melodies.

Dreamland begins to roam freely...

Hear me coming as I go.

I am the wind, the trip into the mist, the sea...

Hear the echo of voices, the heartbeats of waves crushing

On the sand, as I leave my footprints on the land.

Hear the roaring thunder, for my crying is just a reminder.

Please, let the world be and set them all free!!

"Isles of Shoals, the Eternal Sound of the Sea."

"Isles of Shoals, the Eternal Sound of the Sea."

Since I was a little girl, I've always felt a profound fascination with lighthouses and the sea. Its majestic beauty penetrated, plunged deeply into my soul building strong bonds between the sea and me. I always dreamt with exotic islands surrounded by transparent turquoise water sparkling, glowing like a blue sapphire. As a kid, I never missed the TV Show, "The Gilligan's Island." If you are old enough, you might remember those old days back in time. The voice like a blue satin, the eternal sound of the sea strengthens my spirit and takes me to the golden Realm.

So, it won't be strange that you find me writing tons of things about the sea, just like now...


Contemplate the glamour, gaze over the pristine sea of the New Hampshire coast and on a clear day, catch the glimmer of buildings dotting the islands a few miles off shore.

Will you catch the island spirit? Consider a week-long summer conference, or maybe a weekend personal retreat. June through Labor Day, there's something for everyone -from arts and natural history to world affairs, science and spirituality. Try a weekend conference in early September when the weather is beautiful, or a personal retreat at any point throughout the season.

STAR ISLAND becomes a lifelong tradition for many folks who come back, year after year, to experience the island magic with their families, generation after generation. Once you've come, you'll remember Star Island for a lifetime. The cry of the gulls, the pristine beauty, the history behind, will stay with you long after you return back home.

I would love to go there for a personal retreat with my folks. Will you try the Isles of Shoals one day??...

Until we write again.

Hi Starry Dawn,

I love these pictures. Reminds me of Halifax, Nova Scotia. I too love the ocean and light houses. My father had a boat and every summer he would take the family sailing. One summer we got in the boat and had a race from Lake Ontario to Prince Edward Island. That was a ton of fun, a trip I will always remember.

Blessings sister,

Hey Starry! What Gorgeous pictures! I'm fixing to "hit the hay", but saw your comment and wanted to reply. I also did a "guest post" on yesterday (Tuesday) at "Serve One Another in Love" titled "God Doensn't Have to Grant Wishes--He Answers Prayers. It's purpose is discussing the difference between just "wishing" for something and actually "praying" for something. I don't know how much longer she'll have it posted. I posted it Yesterday and it is still up as of right now. She may take it down tomorrow. I will copy it just in case she does. Well, guess I'd better get to bed. I have another house to clean tomorrow ( or I should say in a few hours LOL!.

God Bless, my friend!
