Going Green…

I am a long time

newspaper reader

Savoring it over

morning coffee …

Or … winding up the day

depending on delivery time

 

My guilty Sunday

pleasure was breakfast

in bed with the

Dallas Morning News

a newspaper with so

much to read that

it could be savored

all day long

 

I still read the news

daily … yet …

miss that feel of

paper between my

fingers … the black

stain of newsprint

on my hands transferred

as I read like news was

transferred to my brain

 

These days my daily

news is delivers via

email, social media

or online news outlets

But …

Going green leaves

me missing the

good old days of

hiding behind the

pages of a favorite

newspaper …

Traveling…

She was a small town girl

With no chance to see the world

But…

She had deep aspirations

And…

Long held wishes

 

Her second home was a

library just around the corner

Long hot summer afternoons

spent sitting on the cool

hardwood floor

Reading…

Traveling…

Going places of her dreams

Books were her world

And…

The library her safe haven

 

She could solve a mystery…

Visit a foreign world…

Travel through the stars

into deep space…

All at her fingertips

Encouraged by not only her

family but the librarian

To Read…read…read…

And…

Find herself …

Become anyone she wanted …

Travel the world …

And…

Discover new ones …

A Treat …

A Treat …

Whenever you said,

“I want to read something to you.”

I knew I was in for a treat of words

Wonderful words that either were

from your personal writing

Or…

From something you just read and

wanted to share with me …

our tastes for literature

of all types was so much the same

Neither of us could go a day

without reading … something

And…

Usually we also were writing

Words for us both were/are

like brain food…

oxygen…

our life’s blood…

So…

When you said you wanted

to read something to me I

would sit back, settle in and

wait for the voice that was

so much a part of me

that voice I miss each and

every day now  you

are in the big library

in whatever world we land

when we leave this one

I long to hear you walk in

again and say …

“I want to read something to you.”

Escape

From the time I
could read on my own…
I have had my
nose in a book
 
I became a
super sleuth
with not only
Nancy Drew but
Trixie Belden
 
This lead to 
Patricia Cornwell…
Sue Grafton…
And 
James Patterson
when I got older
 
I am an eclectic
reader and love
many different genres…
From Laurell Kay Hamilton
hunting vampires with Anita
to Diana Gabaldon traveling
through time with
Claire and Jamie
 
Too many favorite 
authors to list 
Let it be known
I love books…
I love words…
I love to read
 
Books were there 
for me all my life
giving me experiences…
adventures…
Showing me an 
Escape into different
worlds…
minds…
all making me feel
special
 
And
 
A chance to 
turn my life off
for and hour 
or so and just 
BE!

My Special Space

My Special Place

I sit in my favorite chair

Music wafts all around me

A variety of music

That takes me

to all places…

some known…

some unknown…

The longer I sit

the more I travel

And…

Smile

Finding my self in

a favorite place…

a special place…

if only in my dreams

My country place…

with a glass conservatory

where I settle in for the day

to read…

to write…

and to travel in my

mind through words and music

With book or

journal and pen in hand…

A cup of tea by my side

and a cat sleeping peacefully

at my feet

I have arrived…

POETRY!

Try as I may…

I am constantly

Drawn from my writing…

to Poetry

Reading Poetry…

when I should be

reading other things

Writing Poetry…

(or attempting)

while my book

goes Untouched

Poetry…

Reading it…

Writing it…

has become my

daily simple

Pleasure!

Maps

Map

Maps

What is that word?

He asks…

Pointing out a country on his map

I try my best to pronounce it correctly…but I’m not sure

He loves maps..my Dad’s passion

Maps of all kinds

All places

He struggles with …

words…

names…

places…

Reading in general

Sacrificing his education at an early age

for his family…

his mother…

his younger siblings…

The Great Depression changed him

It did not however…

Prevent him from learning…

From continuing to

Teach himself

at all costs well into adulthood

Daily he mastered the most

complex math…in his head

making the correct equations to determine

the right mix of sand, gravel, and cement

The proper slope of a roadside…

the length and height of a bridge

Yet…he still struggled with words…

with reading which he loved

But

He never gave up his

Love of

Maps
