Love Is a Beautiful, Blossoming, Evergreen Thing

And I am here for it.

I LOVE love. The beauty of it knows no bounds. I wish more of us knew what true, complete, satisfying love felt like.

and, the troll

had been resting in his
space peacefully, and we
disturbed it–waking it
with our boisterous ways
like we’re so good at doing.

defenders of nature cannot
pummel the detriment of
human angst and weaponry;
there are always fatalities
because of stupidity.

we are quick to hurt & harm
what we do not understand,
and then we wonder why
things turn on us.

I watched “Troll” on Netflix just a few minutes ago, and I hadn’t thought I’d be as captivated as I was, but I had been so enthralled by and engrossed in this movie.

If you haven’t watched it, you may want to put that in your queue for later viewing.

It’s worth it.

And of me, too.

I have been wanting to change things up a bit here at A Cornered Gurl, however, the new themes and layouts for WordPress aren’t really my jam. So, I have decided to stick with the theme I have which is, Radiate, and create a new logo/header image, instead.

I must admit, I like this one a lot more than my previous logo/header image. It speaks to me on a higher level and I actually see more of myself in it, too. Also, notice how the woman is placed in the corner, hmm. Yes, totally deliberate.

I also have this same theme running of sorts for the A Cornered Gurl publication via Medium.

You’ll also notice I’ve changed my profile picture as well as the site icon. The new profile picture gives you a glimpse of the first weekend I had my microlocs installed. It’s simple, sleek, colorful, and makes me smile every time I see it.

And the site icon image is the photo I had for my profile previously. I rather adore this photo, so I thought to use it as the icon people will see upon searching for my site. It p o p s and shows my signature smile and oversized blue light specs.

these precious children
push joy deep into my soul
sweet saving graces

We enjoyed ourselves at my cousins’ house earlier today. This evening has proven to be such a great evening, considering I was without power for nearly 8 hours, but blessed to have spent most of my day enjoying it with family.

I am taking a short break away from blogging and reading to simply experience every precious moment that I can during this holiday.

I will return this coming Tuesday morning, December 27, 2022.

Happy Holidays, beautiful people. Enjoy Christmas as much as you can, if you celebrate it. Remember, you can be kind first; always be kind, first.
