My Day Off

My day off from work this week and unlike so many other days like these, I have chosen to actually follow through physically, what my mind has been wanting me to do. I’m writing. I believe this is the longest spell of silence I’ve had since my blogging experience began. So many times since my last post, I opened my dashboard, looked at the stats and clicked the add a post button. Only to close the page and walk away. I just couldn’t follow through with the swing, or make it across the goal line. I do have things I could have written that might be of interest to you, but right now you may be more interested as to why I have been so silent.

Am I feeling sorry for myself? Just the opposite. I’m really pissed off at myself for allowing this to get to this point. I love writing, whether it’s a quick post, poetry, something about my life or life in general. Posting some of my artwork that I still want to improve on and to promote as my own brand, and of course that can’t happen if I’m sitting on my hands.

See that face in the frame? That is how perplexed I feel as to why this is happening. I do have answers and at the same time, I have no clue. I do know I need to break away from this duldrum (not sure if I’m using the correct word) that has gripped me like Charlie Brown’s dark cloud.

I know exercising and eating healthier can influence how we feel physically and emotionally. Saying that, I haven’t been able to workout like I had been because of a health issue that has come to light. I’m not ready to bring it to the forefront on this blog at the moment. I will say that surgery is planned after the first of the year. If your thinking this is the reason for my silence….it ain’t so because it was during the middle of the silence I became aware of my condition. I do plan to document the before and after, maybe for my own benefit.

So because I haven’t been able to workout, I have gained some extra pounds that I can’t wait to shed. I have indulged in some foods (more like snacking) that I could really do without, but I am getting back on track. My mid-section has taken on the bulge. I want to lose at least 5 pounds before the surgery, a goal I believe is realistic without exercise.

I’ve had some tests done over the past couple of months to determine the extent of my condition and what will be needed to get my health to a healthier state. The doctors tell me I am really in good health aside from the fact I need surgery….that is good news.

We’ve come to our slow period at work which means they are keeping a close eye on the hours. Even with insurance, I’m looking at medical bills already but I’m not letting that get me depressed…down a little but not depressed.

Christmas is right around the corner and as an adult, I know what Christmas is really about. Personally, I could care less if I get a single gift. My gift right now is my daily gift from God with every breath I take. But I do have 3 grandchildren who view this time of year differently and understandably so. We will make sure they have a children’s Christmas.

They grow so fast. There was a time when I could reach out and touch them and hear their laughter, the questions that only a child can ask with a straight face and the cries of pain or disappointment, but now we are states apart. I won’t lie….at my age, it’s nice to have peace and quiet, but I do miss them.

I don’t know if I answered any of the questions you may have as to why I haven’t been posting. There are some elements in my life I’m not totally happy about. Finances, or the lack thereof can bring anybody down. The world’s events that tops the newscasts on a daily basis….and the list goes on….but, even you know these aren’t the main reasons.

I’m generally upbeat and easy going. Laughing (at myself a lot) and making others around me laugh as well. When I do get down, I don’t stay down for long periods. I don’t know why I have allowed myself to stay away from this spot for so long.

I’m anxious to get back into the mix. I don’t want to be this silent anymore. I hope it lasts, but we all know that it’s up to me.

All The Same

WE’RE ALL THE SAME

AllTheSame

BUT DIFFERENT

Experience My Love

You want to taste of my love

For my love is deeply passionate

Experience my love, it’s all about you

Spread me as soft butter

Fill all nooks and crevices to fullness

I will love you as falling water

Drenching your thirst to satisfaction

My love for you is equal to a budding flower

Slow, definite, and scented

Know my love from the tip of your head

To the curling of your toes

Is it heaven? No, but it is heavenly

Experience my love for rejuvenation of the senses

To awaken the sixth as never before

Musical tones dance in thy mind with pleasure

You will know my soul as loving

Experience my love with throbbing beats

Time over time, again and again

Take with you my love, my sweet

Dance with me in thy head, to the beat of thy heart

 Want of me to be in your arms

Think me not to be away from you

Taste of me in your soul

Experience my love to the fullness of thy receiving

To the fulfillment of thy pleasure, Experience My Love

For it is, all about you

Doors Of Time

Doors of time eternally wait to give of its bowels drenched in adventure
Open to ideas from before and of those foreseen in thought
Doors of surprise and some not so but expected in gratitude
Advancement in knowledge critiqued by desired acheivement

For want of excellent perfection doors do waiver not, but waits
Longing to expel that which was asked of it from now and before
To render its belongings to those that have gumption inwardly
Burnt to crispness defined by desires soulful need for success

Doors of plentiful pleasure as seen by those beholden to its giving
Doth appreciate such opportunity to expound upon possibilities
So many doors in waiting for naught of ignorance’s sting
To bore that which it was destined to bare for the beholden

The Power Of Love

This is a poem about true love and sacrifice.

It is actually the second of two that I wrote but the first one had some imperfections that appeared after printing I’m not happy with.

The photo with the frame really doesn’t do it justice. I will edit the photo later.

It can be purchased from my Etsy Shop.

Psssst…Hey Guys and Gals

Are you a seasoned Love Bug and want to show that special someone how you feel and you look for new and better ways to express that love?

Have you come to realize that you have found your Soul Mate and want to let them know?

About to celebrate that 30th, 40th or even your 50th years of marriage?

Newly married?

Show them how much you care and you knew from those first moments together, that this would be a lasting love.

Poetry has always been a way to reveal your emotions by purchasing a greeting card. Now you can give poetry and your gift in one item.

How about a bunny? or a shirt? and not just your ordinary mug. Wouldn’t it be nice to get that look when he or she opens your gift?….a gift they will cherish…..

……ok, sooooo whatr u waiting for?

Setbacks Happen

It’s to be expected to have times of setbacks but when they do happen, knowing this doesn’t make it any easier. I haven’t been able to finish out  my recent projects but the good news is that I am currently working on a custom 8 x 8 shadow box clock for a lady. The clock face is finished and it will be my first LED Display.
Sorry, I can’t show the design yet.

…by the way, I haven’t been feeling on my energetic side lately but this is getting better. I hope to begin work on my projects again and I’m getting new ideas as usual.

I’ll be in touch!!
