So What Do Ya Think?

I’ve been #workinon this for a couple of weeks…kinda had it on the back burner and decided it’s time to unleash it. I originally had the background green but decided on blue and I like the look of the theme in blue also. I’ll be #workinon more backgrounds as I go along.  I like being busy the way I am now…I can work on several projects and drop what doesn’t need to be on the burner at all…at least for a little while.

I’m about ready to start the custom clock I mentioned in yesterday’s post.

I have a busy day tomorrow so I think I’ll call it a night.

Transformation Ahead

I have transferred my WhatrUWorkinOn.com domain to WordPress and along with that comes changes. I will be launching useful services from this site that will be available locally and web wide.

The transformation of the site will be gradual as will the services I will have available.

Stay tuned for all the details.

if i wander too far

will i find my way back?

what awaits around  the bend

will i be afraid to venture?

or excited to see


the obstructions that tend to slow me down

how will i find the proper way to handle

will it come easy

or do i search endlessly


the rules of the game are

there are no rules

doesn’t seem fair

life has the advantage


that means i have to work harder

work through the obstructions

it’s ok to be afraid

just make sure i move forward


i will search and i will find 

life has the advantage 

and it has me too

 

 

 

Who I Am

Who I am remains to be told

And as time goes, all will unfold

For all to see what I am about

I’m lean for my age, and pretty stout


I believe in God, as my creator

And thank Him often I’ll tell you later

For now I will say it’s because of Him

My current situation, does stem


I am the creator of The Bottomless Heart

I love so much the designs that are a part

Of my life today, to bring joy and smiles

To the lives of loved ones for miles and miles


I am a grandfather of three, 2 girls and a boy

They fill My Heart with so much joy

To hear them laugh and play

This age I wish they could stay


But time will not allow this to be

For they will grow older along with me

As their grandfather straight off the cuff

The Bottomless Heart and other stuff


Will be a foundation for them to build

And to add as they please within the field 

Of family friendly products for all to enjoy

And the many people they will employ


I could go on but here I’ll stop

But I will continue, with clip and crop

As designs and words from here to there

Will come to fruition, I’ll be sure to share

In All Sincerity

Many of you have visited my blog and commented on my poetry. Some of you I have been to your blogs as well, and others regretfully I have not visited.

There are reasons but no real excuse for this happening. It pains me that I have fallen so far behind.

Some of you know, through my other blog that me and TheWife have gotten back together after a three year separation. Well, things are definitely different…not necessarily in a bad way, but in ways that have changed….The Man Cave.

The man cave is no longer…..I don’t even think I can call it a den. The atmosphere is not as it once was was when I freely pecked away at the keys with my thoughts clear and profound!

Now, I find myself struggling to write in the same room I have been in. It’s different but understandably so…I guess I wasn’t ready for the emotional change it would take on my writing. With the addition of the netbook, there is more motion involved although I can’t seem to escape this funk that I’m in. It’s weird because I’m not really having a bad time.

I’ll just have to make some adjustments.

I do truly apologize to everyone whom I neglected in response to your comments on my blog. As adjustments are made and goals continue to be acknowledged and sought after, I will make every attempt to be with my poetry family.

My Experience Is–

Here I sit all in wonder, the past few weeks I’ve been waaaay down under.

Feeling better now not totally sure, what brought the change, to my door.

I received a message from a dear sweet friend, telling me to get it together I can’t pretend,

That I’ve not been myself to do and create, but Someone else who had taken a stake

And drove it deep within, my very being, causing such a stir I was not singing

Nor feeling very jolly, but stiff as a board to be used as a dolly,

To move objects, from here to there;  now that the cloud is gone and in the air,

Is the feeing of hope, and as I tried to cope,

I did my daily prayer, and wondered then, what I thought was unfair.

Why do these things happen to me? I give of myself totally free,

Of seeking in return a favor or two. That’s just me, and how I am through

And through, but still I wonder at times, and know to be true,

That coming from this I will be stronger and wiser. I will take this experience to use as a visor,

Because when the sun is bright I want to see, and use the visor—God’s gift to me.

This is my first poem posted publicly. I have no record of any poems I have written in the past…except for one. The others are lost.

This poem was first posted on my other blog on Blogger at Whatr U Workin On?
