Impressions

A new morning …

A new day …

A new month …

A new journal …

 

My fingers itch as

I uncap my pen to

begin the tattoo on blank

white pages with the

symbols that form words

 

I have taken too long to

return … too long to begin

again … too long for a renewal

 

As words flow from my pen

my soul lifts

and …

my heart lightens

while I mindlessly unburden

myself across the blank page

 

There is no control

no censorship

no stopping until

everything is said

 

With a contented sigh

I read the words and

know things will now

be back to normal

or …

as normal as things

will ever be for me

First Day of Summer

First Day of Summer

The longest day

And…

The shortest night

Summer has arrived

with all its glory

 

Day time heat

Night time stars

And …

As a very special

treat this year

a rare full moon

The universe is having

both the sun and the moon

watch over us today …

Blessed Summer Solstice!

Not All…

Not All …

The older I become

the more I want to

turn back time

Have a ‘do-over’

in my life

 

I always did what

others expected of me

Not wanting to upset

or disappoint anyone

In true Libra fashion …

my goal was to keep

everyone balanced

and happy if possible

at times at my own expense

However …

that result left me wanting

more from life

regretting missed experiences

deciding to do what I

thought was the ‘right thing’

rather than my thing at the time

 

Some tell me it is never too late

to follow my dreams and chase

those wants, needs, and desires

Perhaps …

But I am not longer sure where

it was I wanted to wander …

SHOES!

SHOES

I can count the number of

friends mostly

on my two hands

But …

my shoes are a different story

 

I have always loved shoes

All types of shoes

From the time I could walk

until now I have collected them

From plain to fancy flip-flops

High heels of every style

To Chuck Taylor’s in all colors

which are my current favorite

to collect and wear

 

In reality …

Shoes have always been

much more loyal than

any of my friends …

NOLA

NOLA*

For those of you uninitiated

this stands for New Orleans Louisiana

 

I am a confirmed small town

country girl

But …

there is one city that speaks

to me deep in  my soul

NOLA

 

Should I be told to give

up my rural country life

for a city NOLA would be my choice

the food…

the music…

the court yards…

the Big Easy life…

 

I spent some time there in

the mid 90s but not nearly enough

Only enough to know that I was

drawn to the old world charm

and combination of beauty from

multiple ethnic groups

Only enough time to know I

must go back and experience

the city on my own terms

in my own way and time

Live Music

Live Music

When my body and mind are closed

to the world

When everything seems to be going

south and I feel nothing

I turn to music …

Music is my rescue…

My refuge…

It opens my heart…

my mind…

and —

my soul…

 

Music can heal what

no medicine can

Music soothes my fears …

my pain …

and —

my anxiety

 

Music is my life …

Turn Toward the Sun

Turn Toward the Sun

When things are too difficult to

comprehend and life is a struggle

Be like sunflowers…

Always follow the sun

Life giving…

Life affirming…

Sun …

Feel the warmth on your face

Lift your head

Square your shoulders

And …

Smile

Struggle

Struggle

We never know what is going on

in the lives around us

Just as they never know what is

going on in our lives

Everyone has their own

personal demons

Not always apparent

Yet …

There all the same

 

The old adage …

“What doesn’t kill us

makes us stronger”

applies to us all at

one time or another

Struggles are different

at different times in life

and come in varying

degrees of stress

 

Without the struggles

life would not be

nearly as interesting …

our stories would all

be the same …

Simplicity

Simplicity

“Eliminate physical clutter. More importantly, eliminate spiritual clutter.” ~ D. H. Mondfleur ~

In my life I have always collected

things…

people…

memories…

But …

there comes a time when all this

extra life detritus becomes not

only overwhelming but too

much of a weight to carry

Simplicity is needed and

the easiest place to begin

cleaning and clearing is

not the physical clutter…

not the spiritual clutter…

it is the personal clutter …

the people weighing me down

tearing me down

making my life one that I

no longer recognize as my own

Once I have the life I deserve

the life that is my own by

removing toxic people

Then …

the other clutter can be

dealt with in a timely fashion
