Yesterday was the first day of Autumn...

I didn't notice until I looked at the calendar.
The temps here are declining ever so gradually,
as always. I think it's been a whole week of not
getting above 90. Almost pleasant. Still humid.
Next month should be cool enough to go to the beach.

It's true, I live in Florida and I don't like the beach
in hot weather. Fall and winter are much nicer and
the people are fewer.

My head's been full of whiny, screechy noises lately.
I bore myself. I lose patience with myself.
I know so many who are going through much worse
than what nags at me. I may have to start making a
list of reasons I have to be grateful. Perspective, ya know.

Last night I went through some of my first posts, thinking
I would rework/edit some to see if I could make them better.
I didn't get far. Some of the old stuff is plain embarrassing.
My voice was different then. I spent a lot of time and space
just dumping and flushing. Necessary, at the time, I guess.

I wonder now what is necessary besides surviving.
Exist and survive. Survive and exist. Energy draining.

Maybe I need more vitamins.

Humming out loud...

When life has baked your cake,
remember to lick
the bits of icing
it left in the bowl.

(just another version of the poem/thoughts
in the previous post)

Eyes wide open...

not all will be well
sometimes or always
some things or one thing.
but enough
some days
to smile with graceful
and grateful heart
to dance with
joyful soul.

So Many Questions...

~Where's mama when you need her?
~Who'll get tired first?
~Are there elephant trunk prosthetics?
~Is the crocodile laughing?
~Why do I relate to the elephant and not the croc?
~Can a lesson be learned too late?
~Would anyone root for the crocodile?
~Do elephants pray?
~Where are the rest of the photos?
~Do you squinch up your eyes and turn away?

The 'net is a wonderful thing...

when your connection is reliable.
Which mine has not been for a while now.
Tech support. Yeah, right.

I'll be doing this with my fingers crossed and
while holding my breath.

testing, testing...

how many hours
spent explaining
why and how
and why again
why am I
this way
how do I
that way.
no answer is complete
no reason enlightens
to make the questions stop.
Stop asking
or see me walk away, still
to do what
and why
