As the Waves Crash the Shore

(An image I took of a couple overlooking San Francisco.)

Sonnet VIII

If your eyes were not the color of the moon,
of a day full [here, interrupted by the baby
waking -- continued about 26
hours later ]
of a day full of clay, and work, and fire,
if even held-in you did not move in agile grace like the air,
if you were not an amber week,

not the yellow moment
when autumn climbs up through the vines;
if you were not that bread the fragrant moon
kneads, sprinkling its flour across the sky,

oh, my dearest, I could not love you so!
But when I hold you I hold everything that is --
sand, time, the tree of the rain,

everything is alive so that I can be alive:
without moving I can see it all:
in your life I see everything that lives.

Google and Cher Ferroggiaro

I am so sleepy, but too tired to go down to the 2nd floor, get a drink of water, brush my teeth, wash my face, and go to bed. (Way too many duties before a good night's rest!) Anyway, so I "Googled" my name (both "Cherilyn" and "Cher") and the one site that should be #1 (my website with my name) is not even in the first 5 or so pages. You would think it would be on top of my search, yes? Funny.

I DID find myself published in places I never knew. Also, I was published in a 2008 edition of a magazine - one I have never heard of, been asked to submit to, or submitted any of my work to. Funny, as well, but in an odd way.

I will have to look more into those places at a later time - I am so sleepy right now.

Goodnight, sweet world.

As I Gather Poetry

(An image I took in winter)

Nothing could be heard for miles as I walked along the path. Thoughts grew inside of San Francisco and one heart that bloomed for only me. And I remember smiling to myself as I walked on,...

... nature has its way of placing only the sweetest of thoughts inside one's mind.
It has its way of making two blend into "one".

Thank you

I am honored and grateful for my thousands of fans online and off, and hope to make more of my art available in print. (More on this coming soon!)

And to the thousands who have a link to my blog on their blog or website, send me messages, email or comment, I appreciate all you do.

Many thanks and good wishes,
Cher :)

Rainy Day

This is an image of a boy fishing off Goat Island. I have a lot of images from that trip, but no time to really do much with them. I hope to get around to that soon. :)

In other news,...

... it is raining and I adore it. I have opened most of the blinds so I can see it wherever I am in the house. :) All is good. Enjoy your Monday!

By Now it is April

11 pm and all is well

... not a thing stirring, but me, here in the office. Tonight has ended beautifully, and I am about to go back to bed. My husband held me in bed and told me how much he loved me, we talked a bit, touched hearts, and I left him peacefully on his way to dreamland.

I wanted to write in my blog quickly and check the clothes in the dryer. :) I miss him already and am yawning constantly, but my mind will not let me rest til I write some thoughts.

I am so in love and truly, I am blessed. I say this, and think of all the women in the world that just "settle". I think of the women trapped in a dead end relationship, women whom are lost and not in love with the man they fall to sleep beside, as the curtain of stars covers the night. It is indeed a tragedy.

Again, I am blessed.

Who would have thought that I would marry my best friend,... all of my life I had been waiting for him and never knew. I was strung up in relationships that could not last. I was too trusting and far too blind. All the time, Stefan stood beside me and caught me as I fell. No one could ever take his place. He always wanted to be with me, and deep inside, I felt it too. A lot of men that, either wanted to date me or for some reason felt they should hold my hand, slipped away when I began dating him. I find that so odd, because they swore they would always be there, even as a friend. The way I see it, they never were really friends. The ones that stood by me are still here.

Stefan is the light that everyone can see within my eyes. He says he does not know what he would do without me, but it is I who would be lost. ... he is my very heart and soul.

Our new home

It is still a mess! We just moved in a week ago and have not had a chance to do much with the new business and all... we have been so busy with the business that we have not truly discovered everything about our new home.

Part of the kitchen. To the right are more cabinets, the fridge, pantry, and an entrance into the dining room. Straight through the kitchen is the open room that leads to the porch, back yard and garage.

Stefan just emailed these images he took along with this note, "Good Morning Lover Bean!

Here's some pix of the house, the one we own together, now doesn't that sound good?! :)

Love you Baby
" :)

He is such a sweetheart.

Anyway, I will upload more as soon as I get a chance. :) I have to go now... have a great day!

Home Sweet Home

I just wanted to quickly update my blog, because Stefan and I have been so busy moving into our new home and have not been online much at all. :)

I will tell you a bit about the home we bought;

... it is 2700 square ft, 2 story with an extra 2 rooms in the attic, it has a garage out back for parking, central heat and air, a very frightening basement ;). plenty of gardening space for flowers, (I hope to have time to plant soon) a huge kitchen with tons of cabinets, 3 bathrooms, a great room off the kitchen, 3 bedrooms, a view of the city from the office, a laundry room upstairs on the 2nd floor, a gorgeous dining room with a chandelier, and a huge front porch with canvas awnings. We are extremely happy to have our first home together.

I just now connected my computer even though we have moved in last Tuesday. :) It is a very busy time for us with the business and all... we have only had one day off, and it was today. We did some unpacking, grocery shopping, and other things all day... and now, wow, I can smell the delicious scents of Stefan's cooking from here in the office, and I cannot wait to sit down and eat a nice home-cooked meal, (especially when my beautiful husband cooks)!

Anyway, I will upload images soon. I did take some with my blackberry, but have not had time to do much with them. I will.

Time to go for now. I wish you all a beautiful week ahead. Sending hugs to each and every one of you.

Cher :)
