"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless."

2006

I wonder why the mother and the father must have the life they have and although they fight and make one another miserable they stay together because together is better than being alone and free of the chaos? It drives me nuts.

"I have always believed that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value."

Time for a Tuesday Twofer.

questions:

What is the Weather Like today?
If you could have one wish for only yourself, you could not share the benefits of this wish with anyone nor anything, what would it be? and why?

answers:

@10:14am EST it is overcast, the threat of snow is in the forecast. it is 10ºF, with winds of 5 to 10 mph. High forecast for today is 22ºF. 30% chance of snow in the morning hours. I would wish for contentment within myself, to have a place of belonging, a future to dream and plan for, a hope that somewhere out there that I would have my place in this world, within other's physical lives, not locked away in this prison I call home. I would wish to be of value to someone else in the emotional sense, to show, give and accept caring as part of who I am.

the day went smoothly, but yet was void of much of anything but mechanical movements, as all days seem to at this place in time, I wonder where or when the mind shuts down and the physical movements of the day become all there is with no emotion or thought

2002

For once I had a peaceful nights sleep
I wonder if it was because I was tired
or if my heart wasn't as heavy as it had been a few days before
I wonder if just the closeness of that special someone
makes it all better in my world.

The medium is the message.

2000

So many new things to explore, but yet why do I not want to? Why do I feel this fear within my soul? How does one learn to live alone? How does one learn to live without loving another? How will I go on?

Some days are good

In Retrospect 23 Jan

I see the clearest blue
the pleasure was mine
happiness untold

I knew it would be short
but didn't realize

I recalled the falcon flying out of sight
and knew I had been blessed
by being given the opportunity

A smile touches my lips at the remembrance

Good taste is the worst vice ever invented.
