Life’s Changes

Endurance is different for everyone, in many different situations spanning so many astounding lifestyles. Someone could look at my current goings on and say this is a cake walk. Then there is that one who looks and has understanding and wonder how hard it really can be….simply by the change in the flow of things on my blog.


Endurance plays a key role in how any given moment, be it short or long standing has affects on….gosh, where do I begin?….this can go as deep as the soul of a person or as shallow as a mosquito’s touch. 


For me I did endure, and I’m not out of the woods, but it was/is a real struggle this time around. I did learn a few things along the way and that is always a good thing….right?….of course it is. I’m in the process of learning how to adjust to the escalated stress level. Cutting out a few things from my daily work eating habits helped a lot. I was having an affair with sweet pastry….and it was very good, but nearly eliminating that portion of the day was very helpful. 


When you’re dealing with all aspects of life such as work, home, romance or the lack thereof, emotions strewn together like spaghetti except it seems there is no end. That makes for an emotional roller coaster equipped with all the “fun” surprises that help to make these rides even more exciting!

~~~a nice peaceful sigh~~~

Then there’s the moment I find out that it isn’t really my 200th blog post. What I do find out is that the drafts count as posts…..albeit not published, something I didn’t pay any attention to. In the same post where I proudly announced my 200th blog post, I also mentioned I was about to do something I thought was somewhat down the road. Well I guess it is still down the road because I was going to write a poem on a theme and for various reasons, that didn’t happen. 

So life does tick tick tick away filled with its surprises.





Backyard Art

I have a few pictures I have taken the past few weeks I’d like to post. But this one I took late evening yesterday. 


I don’t know for sure who did this, but I’m guessing the Grands had a hand in it. 


The next one was done by DaddyCharles…there was more but in the preview it looked as if it wasn’t showing the letters at all so I didn’t take any more.





Capturing moments in this space in time will be enjoyed in awe in later years in their space in time.

Lately



I’m still in the process of making the transition of my poetry to Reggie’s Thinking. I will be absent this week from the community….because of the change and also because I have to get a handle on my time management. 

Happily, the reasons why I’m having trouble add up to three.

Yes, these three grands are part of the reason for being away from this space at times. With the warm up in the weather, times outdoors is a must.

At first I was really stressing that I hadn’t posted in awhile or written a poem. Then I realize something I said in one of my earliest post….even I would have to search that one….but the point is this, if I lose focus of family and what my future is all about, these posts are all for nothing.

Staying focused….Whatr U Workin On?

Again

The moon was rising
Above the rooftop
Rising above the trees

Its brilliance is hazily beautiful 
Even though someone
Something

Has taken a scoop
From the moon again?
No worries…

The moon is gracious
It gives of itself
Until it is no more

But returns again
Bright in the sky
With it’s borrowed light

Ready to become full again
To give again
Then to leave, for a moment

Again 

This is my entry for Thursday Poets Rally Week 42….let’s go see what else is there.



My thanks to
Vinay and Jingle
