I’m back for Day 3 of my “Write Something New Every Day” series. No poem tonight. I thought I would spend a little more time on imagery instead. I went a little crazy with color […]
First of all, I want to say “Hello… it is good to be back!” Even if it’s only momentarily. For now. It’s been a little over a month since I’ve been active here on the […]
One thing becomes clearer as one gets older and one’s fishing experience increases, and that is the paramount importance of one’s fishing companions. I’ve had this image of some fishermen hanging out for a while […]
Image by Patou Ricard from Pixabay I’ve been hemming and hawing for weeks (or months), the pendulum swaying back and forth; from feeling as though it’s my responsibility (as a human being) to talk (or […]
What is this “uneasiness” I’ve been feeling lately? What am I doing differently at the moment, since the (unofficial) quarantine started? What is it that I miss? What do I think I need? Is it […]
This chair was abandoned on a bridge near my house and I thought of the Pull up a Seat Photo Challenge (2020 Week 12) when I saw it. It’s an interesting setting with all of […]
Tiny blossoms are springing forth on the flowering plum tree.
An American business man was vacationing in a small coastal fishing village. One morning he stood on the pier and watched as a small boat docked. Inside the boat was one fisherman with several large yellowfin tuna. He complimented the man on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them.
“Only a little while,” the fisherman said.
“Why don’t you stay out longer and catch more fish?” The business man asked.
I think the definition of artist is a bit enigmatic. I’ve never called myself an artist. I’ve said things like “this is some art I created,” or “I love to create art,” but that’s as far as it goes. I think the first explanation that pops into my head is the fact that I don’t use pencils, pens, or even brushes (although that may change after the new semester).
—A Page in My Journal My best friend went to cosmetology school when she was eighteen, and I was the brave subject of her very first “perm.” It looked pretty BAD, but eventually my hair […]
It’s been tough for me to post lately. Considering the old saying “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all,” I’ve come to a new and quite similar saying of […]
“The tiny seed knew that in order to grow, it needed to be dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, struggle to reach the light.” -Sandra Kring I’m not quite sure why I’ve been leaning towards […]
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy I should make it a habit to write in […]
Be kind to yourself while blooming. I know sometimes it feels like your soul doesn’t always fit. It’s all a part of the process. Emery Allen What I found odd yesterday is that when I […]
We must remember that everything in this world has God’s fingerprints on it—and that alone makes it special. Our inability to see beauty doesn’t suggest in the slightest that beauty is not there. Rather, it […]
The quieter you become, the more you hear. My mood today is relaxed and I’m going to do my best to stay that way. Last night I came up with a way to address those […]
Hurry always empties a soul. Ann Voskamp Today my mood was: HURRIED. What’s funny about the word hurry is that it could lead you to believe that I was hurrying around—doing lots of activities. The truth of […]
There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls. George Carlin
When we tug at a single thing in nature, we find it attached to the rest of the world. John Muir I know I’ve done droplets already, but they never cease to catch my eye and […]
Today… my mood is contemplative. Most definitely!
Oh endless anticipation I dream of what’s to come I miss entire symphonies while beating my own drum The road beyond entices me I’m focused miles ahead Forever running to get there trampling flowers under tread […]
In spite of all the madness in those days (the crazy 80’s), I held down a job for eight years until—eventually—I was laid off. It wasn’t a surprise. Life had gotten really ugly, and I […]
