postcards from paradise: support for Japan

In the dark of night,
The full moon beams brightly a
Ray of smiling, HOPE.

Please visit our team leader Noelle at
Her heartfelt invitation to offer support and compassion for Japan awaits you.


  1. Wonderful moon photo, full of atmosphere. This and your words are full of hope.

  2. thank you for your lovely warm visit and kind words. i love what we are all capable of...

    thank you for your bright and luminous place in my heart.

  3. What a beautiful picture Margaret. I have such trouble catching the moon with my camera. Once in a while I get lucky. I have one of the one's that came out on my side bar. Love Di ♥

  4. A lovely shot, Margaret.
    I join you in heartfelt thoughts and prayers for Japan and all the suffering people anywhere on earth.

  5. Such a beautiful moon. Love the words of hope.

  6. Hi Margaret,

    This is such a friendly postcard from paradise. The colours, composition and lighting are wonderful. As is your support for Noelle's fund-raising campaign I see in the sidebar.

    Lovely to have come to know you.

  7. Thanks, Marilyn~ Glad all is well in your part of NZ. I liked your magpie poem today! Iambic meter was great, btw. Also loved the praying mantis! Good macros!

  8. I am so glad there are people like you in this world, Rebecca. So compassionate, creative, and kind.

  9. Thanks, Diana! Hope you're in your hot tub! I remember your moon shot--it was great, really clear. Isn't it funny, though, how the full moon hangs so large, low, and luminous in the sky but looks smaller in photos?

  10. Thanks, Friko! It's wonderful that so much goodwill is being directed toward the Japanese who have had more disasters than anyone could have imagined. I liked your Magpie story today! Was not expecting the ending! I remember having to try to read Das Niebelungenlied (sp?) in German I--too hard for me! Are they related?

  11. Thanks, Choices! And I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

  12. Thanks, Sue! I'm also glad we connected. I love everything about the haiku my heart and postcards from paradise group--I feel so blessed! I'm still amazed at how you were able to create the gold heart in the midst of the light. Also amazed at your header (which you designed?) and margins. Do you hire out? :)

  13. a beautiful photo filled with the serenity of a country, even still.

    i hope you are well, margaret. here's wishing you a fine week.


  14. Hi Margaret, Thanks for the info on the Lakotan Indian healing Raindrop technique, spinal message with essential oils. I hadn't heard of it but it sounds divine. I'd like to learn how to do this. Keep up the great work on your blog. You are extremely uplifting.

  15. Thanks, kj~ Someone mentioned on her blog that we still need to have gratitude. Such a positive way to live.
    (I understand that everyone is worried that the next one is the eruption of Mt. Fuji. Post-tohoku earthquake epicenters are gradually moving to the south. M6 hit right by the mountain.)
    Love and prayers,

  16. Thanks Stickup! Most yoga centers have someone who does the Raindrop massage. I've tried it once. I think your photos and poems are inspiring! They just make me go deeper and deeper...

  17. Margaret,
    You are an Angel! I don't know what I would do without you on my team. I am so completely grateful to know you. I feel that we are a great circle of love and energy united to do Great Acts. Thank you for your whole hearted support.
    Love and Gratitude,
