Point of View

I was looking at some photos from a few years ago for a post I’m thinking about and a couple of things caught my attention. The first thing is that I didn’t really care for this photo of me at the time, but now, I think it isn’t so awful […]

One of the things I need…

Things I need, the thirty-six hour day. I’m also finding that I have to exert my will just about continuously over the hours I do have available to me. This is what happens, having drifted and dreamed for a while, the moment of “A-ha! I know all the things I […]

Toad the Wet Sprocket

  Toad the Wet Sprocket. Music from the 1990s, classified as Alternative Rock, and Grunge. I’m listening to it again and it’s speaking to me as much as it did then, when I was in my mid-twenties, a new mom, working on my poems. I think it’s going to be […]

Still There Are

Still there are the Moon and the Stars the light of the night to know where we are under the same sky and everything else is the blink of an eye time everlasting passing us by.   6/28/18 TS

When Half-Gods Go

Here we are, can you believe it, going into September. Where does the time go? I’m still reading Carl Sandburg’s big book of Abraham Lincoln. I’ve no words adequate to do it justice. There is no doubt that the United States would not still exist, our Constitution would not have […]

Forward

This isn’t what I was going to write about today. I was going to write about dreams, about thinking positive, being happy, and dreaming bigger. I’m going to save that post for another time. Perhaps tomorrow. I logged on to my computer today and the first thing I saw was […]

Inspirations

I’ve re-started a Tumblr page, and I’ve created a companion page to this page. The goal is, to keep what is good, to focus on the good things, to find ways to use the internet creating one’s own filters for content while also creating content. I couldn’t take anymore of […]

What Makes You Happy?

Here’s a quote from the book “Illusions”, by Richard Bach… “In the path of our happiness shall we find the learning for which we have chosen this lifetime.” That makes the question pretty simple, though perhaps the answer(s) won’t be.Β  What makes you happy? When are you the happiest? What […]

Wings

This is how I spread my wings, on four winds in mournful sigh, this is how I live my dreams, this is how I fly, Into a night that’s darker deep, than the black at the bottom of the sea, Into a soul so fast asleep, aching to be free. […]

Pigeon Hole

Don’t try to put me in your pigeon hole, don’t tell me how you sold your soul, I don’t really want to know, I’ve got problems of my own. Don’t you know they broke the mold, when they made me? When they made me. I don’t want to hear your […]

The Keeper

The Keeper A slow and steady flame, Does burn inside this heart, Though with it knowledge came, To rip my soul apart.   Of the garden fruit, I ate, And […]

Notre Dame is Burning

I’ve long wanted to visit Paris. Some years ago I began having dreams about the city. The dreams subsided but my interest in visiting did not. In recent years I’d resigned myself to thinking it would remain a lovely dream, perhaps a necessary one, but nothing more than that. While […]
