Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Use me as a vessel,
to carry you through,
the treacherous waters,
during dark nights.

Let me be your eyes,
when you cannot see,
to guide you to shore.

Let me be your ears,
when the wind gushes so loud,
you cannot hear.

Let me carry you over the bridges,
rivers and oceans ,
so that you may feel loved and protected
from the perils of the storm.

Will you do the same for me?
We need each other.

When one can’t hear,
the other can see,
when one can’t see,
the other can hear.

Together, we can bridge,
whatever storm comes our way,
no mater how big or how small.
Use me and I’ll use you.

We’ve got this you and me!


We have had some outrageous weather conditions in California which you’ve probably heard about if you follow the news. While it’s sad that so many places have flooded, we are long over due and we have been in a drought for so long now and desperately need the rain. When it rains it pours.

We sold our house to my mother and stepdad when we were building a home about 40 years ago and the big oak tree in front of their house fell down. It was so sad but thankfully, no one was injured. Santa Cruz and Capitola had some major flooding and part of the pier collapsed.

Yesterday we went to half moon bay to pick up some door from our painter and the whole block next to him was completely flooded and they are in hotels now. Wild how some are spared and some are not during these natural disasters.

It’s being called The Bomb Cyclone:

SAN FRANCISCO – A powerful and deadly bomb cyclone pounded California with heavy rain and high winds this week and was just one in a series of storms that will impact the West in the coming days. Drivers barrel into standing water on Interstate 101 in San Francisco, California on January 4, 2023.3 days ago

It’s nothing like you all get in other parts of the world but it’s big for us and another one is supposed to hit this week.

This is in front of my mothers house in Menlo Park, Ca.

Have a great week ahead. We’re gearing for more storms this week and then doing some damage control and adding french drains in our yard as our tiki bar we just finished has taken a hit with water damage.

On the plus side the lakes should be filling up and hopefully we’ll finally have water at our lake house this summer which is long overdue. It’s up at least a foot at the moment I hear.

Stay safe and be there for each other in all you do!

Blessings of Love,

πŸ’—

Cindy

Wow! what a mess this has created! I guess California won’t have to worry about a water shortage this Summer!!
When I read your poem, two old pop songs came to mind! Bridge over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkle … and I’ve Got You Babe by Sonny and Cher!

When it rains, it pours is right, Cindy. The news footage shows such terrible devastation. I hope you and yours stay safe and dry. Yes, we need each other.

We all need to be each other’s vessel Cindy! All the flooding is so devastating, makes me sad for those people.

Hi Cindy, flooding is terrible and causes so much damage. I am sorry to read this. It is the same here, we have droughts and then floods, partly because the ground is so dried out and hard it can’t absorb the water.

‘Bomb cyclone’ is such a crazy term. Haven’t heard of it till now. Malaysia’s having some serious floods this monsoon season too. The tree at your mum’s house looks gnarly. You stay safe too, Cindy!

Cindy, a moving poem and indeed timely. The scene you show and describe sounds horrendous and the weather seems to be wilder and more intense than ever. I’m glad your family was safe but so many people have lost so much. Keep safe and well! xx

Beautiful poetry and amazing footage Cindy. I agree we all need each other and hard weather times are always the proving point. So sorry to hear of the flooding catastrophes and the tree falling. You have a big heart and that helps buoy people up and carry them along. Much love xoxo

That’s a lovely poem, Cindy. And my gosh about the storms. So sad about the 100-y-old tree. What a loss! Nice about the lakes filling, however. CA certainly needs water, in general. Wouldn’t mind if it spaced itself out a little more, though. πŸ™‚

Your poem is so touching and beautiful. I’m in California too and it’s been wildβ€”all this rain. I have to drive downtown again today and expect to see even more trees which have been knocked down from these storms. We need the water, but it’s quite hard to see all the flooding and destruction. Stay safe!

This poem is beautiful Cindy ❀
It speaks to the power of mutual support and the importance of being there for one another during difficult times. I pray for your and everyone’s well-being during these extreme weather conditions. This too shall be over.

Hi Cindy. We’re Californians too, though a bit further north than you up here in Eureka. Much like everyone else in the west, we’ve gotten slammed for the last month. After a couple of dry days, it’s just starting to rain today, but then it’s expected to be dry for an extended period.

The windstorms have been so strong up here, that a couple of our fence posts snapped during one of them. We also have been having a series of earthquakes, as if we didn’t have enough drama around here. The worst one broke something in every room in the house. I’ve lived here (my wife is from Sonoma County) for over 45 years, and I can only think of one other that powerful that we’ve been through.

I’ve seen you on many of the same blogs I follow, and I finally got on board today with the rest of your extensive posse. Best to you in 2023!

Wow Cindy! First your gorgeous poem, about love as two halves of a whole relationship. So beautifully put, so carefully promised each verse. I really loved the romance and commitment at the same time. Yes, I had heard about your weather, especially in Northern California, but pictures of your mother’s 100 year old gorgeous standing legend of a tree, now fallen in the storm was really heartbreaking. The video was shocking and I live in a country that gets more than a half a year pounded by rains and thunderstorms. Hope it all clears up sooner than later. Big hugs β€οΈπŸ€—β€οΈ
