Hunger

Hunger

Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.  ~Les Brown     I have been restless these days.  I am not sure what is behind it all.  Perhaps the fact that spring and summer flew […]

Poetry Sunday-Late October Evenin’

Late October Evenin’   Darkness descends upon me a little earlier every day, As colors seem to leap from the trees to paint the sky. The cold winds howl through scraping branches, While my bones ache a bit more now. And as the last slip of light hastens me home- Soon I will feel the hearth warm my […]

A Saboteur Heals

A Saboteur Heals

“Sometimes you hit a point where you either change or self destruct.”  ― Sam Stevens   Life sometimes brings you messages, signals that if you pay attention will serve you well.  I missed many signals for a long time.  And while life brings on its own stresses some jobs add to it.  But we can manage stress in […]

Poetry Sunday-Mending

Poetry Sunday-Mending

Mending     Like the frayed edges of my favorite shirt, Warm and comfortable with the holes.     Torn pages of a special childhood book, Smudged with memories.     Worn photos, now the colors fading and antique, As if that time will be gone, forgotten.     Scars lighten, barely visible, Fully healed, […]

Quiet Hopes

Quiet Hopes

  “The greatest joys in life are found not only in what we do and feel, but also in our quiet hopes and labors for others.” ― Bryant McGill     Do you dream?  Not the dreams of night, but more a ‘hoping in your heart’ dream.  A hazy, lazy daydream of what might be.  Imagining yourself […]

Poetry Sunday-Still Life

Poetry Sunday-Still Life

Still Life   The heat of my days is gone, now a tinge of coolness on the wind lingers.   Soft colors faded from the garish summer sun, as light shines at an angle, my perceptions skewed.   Gone is the black and white, the absolute. Born is the gray, the in-between that stays.   […]

Finding The Productive Path

Finding The Productive Path

“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need […]

Poetry Sunday-Reflections

Poetry Sunday-Reflections

  Reflections In A Garden   Old weary bones feel the ache now… stems broken and strewn, petals blackened and faded, rain and snow will beat it all down, back to the earth.     Tiny seeds linger, though, in rich soil… after a long rest, surging up and breaking through, life beginning again, always […]

Saying Goodbye

Saying Goodbye

 “Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.”  ~Ann Landers   I have been toying with the idea of retirement for a few years now.  As I neared the […]
