sun ablaze

high noon swelter




clouds lofty

drift east to west

      1. Welcome to WordPress! I look forward to seeing posts in your blog and suggest your post as soon as you can. Bloggers prefer to follow other bloggers when they know what the blog is about. 😉


  1. Whew, I am feeling the heat right now, not so much the bliss. But we are in the desert… this too shall pass. And in the fall, we feel the bliss!! Still love your poem 🥰


      1. All we have to do is turn around and the weather is different from one moment to the next. Makes for interesting sky 🙂


    1. The theme is Parabola and free. It has a lot going for it. You will have to download the extra settings to get all of the goodies (also free). It’s the only theme, I’ve been totally satisfied with.

      Another great theme, Weaver Extreme, also free! The extras are free, as well.

      I like themes where I can change the appearance of the blog within the theme, rather than search for another.

      Both have headers, footers, sidebars, colors and any part of the theme can be adjusted.

      Something I just recently noticed about your theme is when I go into one of your sidebar topics, the screen is much smaller. I thought it’s because I use Vivaldi and didn’t test it in Firefox or Chrome, which I will if you want me to.


      1. Wow, that didn’t take long! It looks great, Colleen. You know at the very bottom you can change the wording in Parabola settings – Miscellaneous.

        You can also adjust the width and length of the Header.

        I love it! ❤️
