Wet autumn leaves stick to my window
Pale winter sun bleaching
the red and gold through to my workspace
trying to touch the pages I work on
like the eager fingers of a small child
wanting to play before the snow comes.
Placing my hand in the pale streak of light
I am bathed in red and gold
My hand now belongs to an ancient God
Would that I could write with the same power
Not like a fallen angel…
Hello, my dear readers! Hope all is well in your nook of the universe. ❤
This will be a quick post for you guys, but I just wanted to alert you all to something I’ve got in the works beginning this September 1: We’re doing another poetry series!
As you guys may know, I wrote two weeks’ worth of poems in a series called Sins & Virtues, in which I penned my opinions on the Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Heavenly Virtues. Since I miss writing a poem every day, I thought it would be fun to come up with another series, and this one is going to be a little different than Sins & Virtues.
We’re going to be going through the English alphabet, from A-Z. Every day there will be a new poem published here that connects to that day’s letter. Yes, this may seem childish, but I…

What is your definition of “Impossible”? Something no one has done? Or something you don’t think you can accomplish? I couch my “impossibilities” as problems seeking answers. That interpretation creates solvable equations and solving them requires effort. If the goal is doable, it’s a matter of completing the required work. Climbing Mt Everest is possible, over 4,000 people have reached it, but it comes with a price. Your hope of attaining the summit may cost you your life.
Naming the Impossible’s entrance fee leaves the rest to you. Are you willing to pay the ante? The solution’s phase two is commitment. You must find your burning desire, bolster your resolve to complete the work that will advance you toward your goal. Don’t expect others to support you because chances are, they won’t. Grow accustomed to failing. Soichiro Honda once said, “Success is 99% failure.” The key is picking yourself up and continuing the journey.

This is me today.
This is me at my wedding.
Much has happened in the last 30 years, even more since the day of my birth, 57 years ago. Today, I will wear a smile, no matter what! I always enjoy my birthday!
So many women (and men too!) shy away from owning up to the years they’ve earned. It’s something I’ve never understood. Why not be happy and even proud to say what age you are? Sure we’re getting older, but it doesn’t mean we’re getting worthless as we do. In fact, I’d argue that I’m in the prime of my life as the years tick on. Do body parts age and let me down? Absolutely but that’s the exchange for gaining knowledge and making it to some semblance of wisdom in those later years. I’m very happy to breathe every day and especially on the day of my…
