Today I’m With Dale Rogerson at A Dalectable Life

I’m with Dale Rogerson at her blog “A Dalectable Life” with another excerpt from Eternal Road – The final stop. Come on over. Here is the link.

A little about Dale in her words.

“What to say about me? How to put into words that adequately describe me without blathering on? I am many things: Lover of words, widow, mother of two wonderful young men, excellent cook (why say otherwise when it’s been repeated?), dreamer, social butterfly, photographer, seeker of all things good health…

Now that I finally visited Tuscany, I feel the world awaits!

I would love to make a difference in this world by just being me (and who else could I be?) So,I am striving to let my authentic self shine.”

In my words. Dale is a superb storyteller, Poet, and Photographer. She is the mother of two, and, you can find her mostly giving of herself to others.

Here is a recent partial set of photos Dale took and used under the title. The full text is on her site.

The Moon, Playing Coquette

Like voyeurs, they watch, moonstruck, unwilling to leave, because, on this night, the Moon plays temptress. Unabashedly, she prances around fully nude, but tonight, though her light is bright, she keeps a sliver of herself hidden.

She is playing the seductress with a reverse striptease. She flirts with the leaves on the trees, coyly covering and uncovering parts of herself.

First one side,

then the other, concealing more of herself each time she shifts.

It is a sensuous dance that surprises the watchers. How can they be aroused by the addition rather than the removal of vestments? And yet they are. Enchanted, even.

At last, she finishes her dance, her new garment reminding her audience of a woman’s shoulder, decorated with lace.
