Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Happy Fri-Yayyyy My Friends,

It’s the little things that bring a resounding YAY in my day.

The hummingbirds flying by to pollinate my fuchsias, while the finches hang on the line to feed their babies.

Well I tried to get a click but I missed them but it was fun trying. This is where they hang


Being kidnapped for a walk and dinner by a friend and giggling in childlike wonder. Ollie and Hunter had a ball too.

Our kids were friends in pre-school and we have remained close since then. Ollie and Zoe did great together.


A hike in the woods with my friend Amit and stumbling on an owl that took my breath away. This was such a blast. I know my pics aren’t great but it was so awesome, I just had to share it with you. It was around 5:00 p.m. and I’ve never seen an owl in the daylight before. It stirred quite a ruckus amongst the others and the red tales were spooping down too but I couldn’t capture. You have to go visit our friend Timothy Price at Off Center and Not Even if you want to see his amazing owls before they fly away.


The Venus Dogwood morphing daily from green small buds to saucers.

The ice cream clouds of the magnolias.


The joy of my first yellow and green squash.


Reading your blogs and comments to get me through.

Doesn’t Everybody?! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

My Just Joey’s bursting color and scent.


Seeing things come together after trying to fit a square peg in a round hole, We’re almost through this first phase of the remodel and we’ll be in our new bedroom and bathroom in one month whoooo hooo.


Playing Emojiku with Goff and all of you, Here’s one of the ones Goff and I did this month. I love to see everyone playing applaud Goff for his posting all of them. Thanks Goff!

Poetry โ€“ Splendid Waters Curve โ€“ An Emojiku Poem by Cindy Georgakas and Goff James

ยฉ Sandy Haight, Breathtaking Kai Mana, 2020

Welcome to the Surreal,

Fantastical, Weird and Wacky World of Emojiku

๐ŸŒŠ Splendid waters curve
๐Ÿ‘ฅ Reflect bodies silhouette
๐ŸŒค Respite for the soul

๐ŸŒŠ Silence ribbon-waved
๐Ÿ‘ฅ Shadows speak in unison
๐ŸŒค Things unknown unseen

Want to play? We’d love it. Just start your Emojiku and share it here or with Goff (his link is above) and see your name in Emojiku lights. It’s fun and easy to play.

What is emojiku?

The emojiku came about by Cindy Georgakas and Goff playing emoji tennis in the WP comments box. It was a natural step to take it one stage further and develop from being just a fleeting form of discourse into something more poetically constructive.

An emojiku is a hybrid poetic form, and is similar in format to a haiku / senryลซ or haiga. However there are no strict restrictive set rules. The format is open and fluid.

In the case of an emojiku the source image is an emoji. The emojiku is made up of at least three different emoji. Each emoji being the inspiration for one line of the short poem.

The process of creating an emojiku begins by a blogger sending three different emoji to a fellow blogger.

The second blogger responds by writing their emojiku and forwarding it back to the original blogger; who, in turn responds by writing a counterpoint emojiku using the same emoji images.

Join in the emojiku fun and share 

Todayโ€™s Prompts are

๐ŸŒŠ ๐Ÿ‘ฅ ๐ŸŒค

To participate use todayโ€™s three emoji prompts and place your response in My Comments Box

Go where the emoji take you. It can be any variation of the emoji. You may also substitute the emoji for different emoji.

Have Fun

Please keep your prompt responses family-friendly. Disrespectful and inappropriate comments will not be responded to and removed immediately.

Have a wonderful weekend while breathing in the wonder of another day. Make the most of what you are given and take small moments that feed our souls. It’s not a luxury,. It’s a necessity! See you Monday for a tour, talk on “Are we there Yet” and a meditation.

Happy Fun Fri-Yay!

Lovely photos, Cindy, and that OWL!!! Wow! I grew up on a farm and occasionally saw owls, but even on the farm they were usually only active after dusk. That must have been a thrill for you to stumble across such a magnificent creature. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

Cindaaaaayyyyyy, girl there is so much to process here, I simply don’t know where to begin. First, let me say that you and your longtime friend look like sisters. WHOA! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜œ Secondly, I am just blown away by all of those gorgeous flowers that you are flanked with. Amazing colors and textures. ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒธ

Thirdly, that shot of the owl seems so surreal. I have not seen our resident owls during the day but I hear their “woooooing” in the trees outside our bedroom at night! ๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿฆ‰ They don’t realize that we are not nocturnal like they are! I wake up everytime! LMBO ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚ Now, fourthly, your renovation is coming along marvelously. I know you are happy about that. So girlfriend, today I am so there with you by declaring and applauding all of your very valid reasons for having a FriYay FUNday Cindaaaaayyyyyy!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ†๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿฅ‚

Here goes my emojiku.You are human do you understand that.You are human on a journey sent to experience.Experience everything that comes your way on the waves of this life and in the process do you realise you become the waves yourself.As you balance yourself on the waves of uncertainty of this life, you emerge powerfully just like the spirit of waves.You come to an understanding the wave of life is only complete with its upward and downward motion.The moment you realised this Doma you began to realise the power of your authentic self that has learned to embrace and soak in the waves.The sun seemed to shine brighter on the waves of this life……..๐Ÿฆ‹๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ•• my emojiku challenge
