Wishing you all a very Happy New Year 2018! I’m a little late to the party because I got started on one of the things that I had promised myself – some cozy family time! It was relaxing and calming and I feel ready to begin the new year head on. I always forget how travel and good company can also rejuvenate the soul. 🙂 Still haven’t gotten started on the resolutions though 😉
In the grand scheme of things
While life goes on
I never miss to miss you.
Every once in a while
I pop in to see
The lone hut with the withering bent oak
The house with the cracking ceiling
The roadside solitary sedan that was
Once an expensive car-on-four-working-wheels.
The broken bench in a park,
The leaf from a low, bent branch.
The dead of a pigeon’s nest.
The dying of the humans rest.
The buried old in my home,
The ragged rolled in your dome,
The distressed dump at my house,
The carefully clumped in your shroud.
Once in a while I try to see,
Twice of these days, I long to see.
The love in the eyes of the old.
The longing for every one of their own.
The sweat in each brick of the crumbling house,
The beehive along the sides of the hut.
The birds making a nest in the ye old oak.
The dog making a home in the vintage baroque.
I see the impaired ant that waits
for its sunrise death when weak,
It drinks the last dew drop that
hangs from the dwindling pale sprig.
I venture daily,
only looking for reasons,
I see everything going,
advancing to the heavens.
Living by the day,
and season to season.
Slowly encumbered, ultimately aging,
Finally defeated, definitely dying,
Ultimately succumbing to the
Dreaded death wish defined.

“I won’t tell you that the world matters nothing, or the world’s voice, or the voice of society. They matter a good deal. They matter far too much. But there are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely—or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands. You have that moment now. Choose!”
― Oscar Wilde
Two clenched jaws, but expectant eyes
and something lies deep inside
fighting hard to keep the spark alive.

Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore.
Going to work with a weird energy made me think of work quotes. And when I found Lady Gaga’s words, they were delightfully true. We have to go to work, and we have to earn that money to sustain us. And sometimes the struggle of choosing between personal and professional goals is the most difficult. But each one of us knows our priorities. And nothing like some optimistic rock n roll star wisdom to start the day with! Have a great day everyone.
I look at this moon
And I remember your name
Still shines through my heart.
