A Child Of The 1970’s

Running to find the biggest field with the longest swaying in the breeze grasses..laying down with arms stretched out and looking up to watch the clouds slowly drift by and think..imagine..smile and or cry……

Mid Morning Dreams (1)

“…and they stood in the pouring rain, embraced tightly in each others arms, like 2 best friends could. She wished her well with her new life as they scrunched each others jackets, neither, not wanting to be the first to let go. “I’m so sorry for what happened, it wasn’t my intent to insult you, it never was.”
“It’s okay, I understand, water under the bridge.”
They kissed eachothers cheek before looking into eachothers eyes. “Be well, be happy.”
“I will and you too be well and happy.”
That was a rainy spring morning and now she fought off the freezing winter winds. She walked with her head down and slightly turned away from old man winter, not wanting to make eye contact with even a relative of Mother Nature, afraid that if he really saw her depth through the windows of her soul, it would send a chill down his spine…..” By Snowy

When it comes to relationships, I believe most of our sadness and reason for falling apart is because we expect the other person to give as much as we do, into it. That is not always going to be the way. No 2 people will love each other at the same level every day, one of the 2 may love more one day and less the next. Understanding that, will keep the relationship balanced, not at 50/50 but at 60/40 or 30/70 and so on. Learn to accept each others personal best. And remember who you fell in love with in the beginning, with no expectations of you changing them.. change may come, only if and when a person wants it..don’t force it. Accept and carry on or reject and be alone.. we all have choices. Neither is bad, if it works for you.

Parenting: Are We Getting a Raw Deal?

12711307_10206480078338131_5829653117437408897_oSummer 1974. I’m 9 years old. By 7:30 am, I’m up and out of the house, or if it’s Saturday I’m up and doing exactly what my father, Big Jerry, has told me to do. Might be raking, mowing, digging holes, or washing cars.

Summer 2016. I’m tiptoeing out of the house, on my way to work, in an effort not to wake my children who will undoubtedly sleep until 11 am. They may complete a couple of the chores I’ve left in a list on the kitchen counter for them, or they may eat stale Cheez-its that were left in their rooms 3 days ago, in order to avoid the kitchen at all costs and “not see” the list.

If you haven’t noticed, we’re getting a raw deal where this parenting gig is concerned. When did adults start caring whether or not their kids were safe, happy, or popular?…

In My Defense

aa4c846b30e4a8bd78723c9b3f494747As time goes by, I have this ability to fend for myself freely, in all aspects of my life and feel great content in doing so.

I realized that pretty quick a few years back, it is I who can solve my own problems. I may wonder about yours, yet not make them my own. I see them as teaching moments…that..”what would I do in that case?”, moments. I have choosen my own spiritual expression and believe in some of yours. Yet I don’t use my spirituality as an excuse to harm or meme any creature, any part of nature or another human being. Because I do believe that what I radiate comes back to me!!

I definitely don’t need the confines of any church or any persons lifestyle to feel the freedom of beauty and light..right and wrong. I just need time within my own soul..and time outside under the sun or moon. This is where my energy comes from.

I am learning through the Wicca teachings and it works for me.

Find your peace! Develope it..nurture it..love it!

Time Escapes Me!

I haven’t written any poetry in a while, but this morning over coffee, life kind of got poetic. So here is what fell from the tips of my fingers to the keyboard. Enjoy!
~Time Escapes Me~
Just when I think I have it’s hand, it moves ahead.
“Wait! Wait for me Please?” I cried aloud
Over it’s shoulder it smiles and says
“Time waits for no one child! Do what needs to be done now!”
Falling to my knees, I cry out. “But, I have so much to do, where do I find you Time? I am so tired!”
“Many before you have tried to stop Time child!’ he laughed, “but no one can stop Time, you make me! and you will always find me, if you want me. Take me! Share me! Because the day will come, where you wished you had!”
I whispered through tear drops, “I can not let Time escape me. I will find you and together we will capture moments in Time!”
