Never Forget

I remember that day thirteen years ago when  I watch the adults around me move through the day in sadden silence.  I knew something big happened.  I watched the news broadcasts over and over again with the arms of my family wrapped around me in protective sympathy.

I remember how numb I felt waking up the next, trying to get though it one moment at a time.  So many things have changed since 2,977 lives were expunged from our world.

Our since of security has been shaken and civil rights have been trampled on in the name of vengeance.  We are still fighting a war that seems to have no end.  We are more divided now then we were back then.

There is still something, something I remember so strongly it was emerged in the bowels of that horrific tragedy that a glimmer of goodness began to shine.   It was the coming together as a nation..the goodness in people that encompassed our broken world.

t was the strength that brought us back and made are hearts heal.  I still remember that fretful day but I also remember from great tragedy good is born....never forget

Colorless

I use to close my eyes and dream in brilliant colors. I loved to watch the story lines and follow the characters in whatever unseemly adventure I had in store for them.

But lately, I have notice that the color has faded from my dreams and I have been missing parts of the adventure.  I only see glimpses of places and faces are in shadows.

Where are they going?  I worry about the loss and I truly miss the stories.  What is happening to me?  Why are they leaving me...?  I only hope to see the color again soon...I sure do miss the brilliance.

Celebration

Today, I realized I am happy.  I am not bogged down in the craziness of the world.

 I am just enjoying being who I am.  I guess that is what growing up is all about.  I have found people in my life who get who I am and are not trying to change me.

I am content with who I have become and I can only hope that I stay on this giddy path.

I use to care so much about what other people thought but I have learned that it is my thoughts about myself that are the most important.

I guess being happy has made me a selfish person but I am tired of being politically correct and miserable.

Welcome to the birth of my understand of myself...celebrate with me my friends...

Convergence

I haven't been to chat in awhile and I had a little time yesterday so I decided to pop in and see what was going on.

I was happy to see a few familiar faces and I enjoyed a pretty interesting conversation about aliens, war, elections, space and BBQ.

I forgot how much I enjoyed exchanging ideas and bouncing silly notions around.  It was a definite high and I do miss it.

I am so afraid of getting swept into the addiction of chat that I think I stay away too much.

I am sure I can find the balance between real life and my online world...I just have to trend lightly.

Bombarding

As I search for the state of the union, I notice that it's focus is on the bad things so I have stopped watching the news.

 It is not like I am not informed about the events in the world but I have eliminated the constant bombarding of negative information.  I know bad things happen but I believe you can focus on the good.

  I guess this makes me a little delusional but I like to think this world is full of more positive things.  We deal with enough tragedy on a regular basis.

 I guess I am putting on rose-colored glasses tinted in positive optimism in the hopes that one in time things will be better...

Music Maddness

No matter how crazy your day was today, something happens when put on a pair of headphones and plug into a really good song.

 There is just something magical about listening to the right song...the sway of your hips to the beat.  

The world that comes into focus as you close your eyes and imagine the notes all around you.  

It's a happy place where you can play...

I have been turning up the beat more and more lately and really enjoying myself.  

I challenge you to find a song that makes you feel that way..

Summertime

During summertime, I am able to jump off the fast-moving train that I call my life, barrel roll and relax.

It is a time to breathe deeply, walk in slow motion and recharge.

 It is a time to notice the flowers growing in the garden, the birds and squirrels playing in the street, and the stars glowing in darkened sky.

It is a time to let my imagination climb into the clouds and reach out to find a hidden treasure.

It is a time to capture my thoughts in writing and spend time chatting with friends.

I do enjoy the summertime.
