I May Never Do Things Right, But I Have Unlimited Creativity and Imagination

Updated on September 8, 2019

I Know It's Early

This couldn't wait

4:44 in the morning

Hi mom

Whenever my wife and I

See triple digits

We think of my mom

Our connection to the great beyond

If I can reach my mom

That means I can reach anyone

My mom has never let me down

So that is one story I am glad to share

We just don't know

What tomorrow will bring

If today is going well

Then I hope more of today

If not so well

Then please change and give me something different

Imagination is the key to the world

We can dream

Those people who dream the biggest and the best

Find a way to make their dreams reality

Many years ago I thought it would be so cool to have penpals from around the world

Then the more I thought about it

It could get pretty expensive for everyone

The more you communicate

The better things feel

The more expensive things will be

Then someone else told me

You can't do that

People will know where you live

People don't want you to know where they live either

There are a lot of crazies in the world

How about all the good people

I was told

There is no safe way

I was ten at the time

Now I am 54 years old

Things have changed so much

We can talk to people all over the world

It doesn't cost money

We are all safe

Well, now I recently told that person the great news

The person happens to be my brother

They don't remember the conversation

They act like it never happened

How could they forget something so important ?

I guess only to me

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder

I think I borrowed everyone elses glasses

Because I see beauty everywhere

What a great life

What a wonderful life

Don't just sit there

Get up and kick up some dust

Live the most amazing life

Fulfill all your dreams or at least die trying

      Gypsy Rose Lee I think animals are great. They are still no substitute for real people and relationships. I think you should take the extra effort and walk and talk to friends that you meet. If later you want a dog or a cat that is great. If you get an animal first you are avoiding so many incredible people that can change your life forever. Your writing is important but it should not interfere with living your life. There are many jobs you are probably qualified to do and writing is the topping on the cake. Thank you for all your comments and appreciation over the years. You keep helping me write when I am down and out. Now I want to do the same for you. Please, keep in touch. Exercise feels good and does our body good. I know when you are sick it is so hard to mend and get better. No word on Sid? Charlotte and my wife both send our love and friendship.

      John Hansen I did forget to click approve. I am so glad I wasn't a gunfighter. I am slow at the draw. (lol) I have a little time so I am reading comments and writing a little. My wife and I just finished watching Rocket Man. The story of Elton Johns Life. Sad and moving. We thought it was incredible. Let me know what you think? I have so many ideas floating in my head. I have to let a few out at a time. Like butterflies. Then watch and see where they land. Thank you again for all your support. Have a wonderful night.

      Yes, Dream On, I can totally relate to others trying to guide you in a certain direction, but in the end, that is not the way you should be going and you need to make your own decisions for your own life. Oh, my original comment hasn't appeared, maybe you forgot to approve it lol. I do that sometimes.

      John Hansen I missed out on years of friends and now I struggle to catch up. I let other people tell me what is right or wrong. They guided me to what they thought was right for me. I only recently have begun to understand these people no longer have control over me. People say and do things all the time that is wrong. I put all my trust in the people that I loved and thinking all they had was love back. Sometimes not the case. They only did what they knew and believed even if it hurts others in the process. Writing is a way I learned to vent, escape and dream. I keep learning and trying no matter what others like or dislike. It's my life and I don't tell them how to live theirs. We have to take control and be careful. Listening to other people's ideas is helpful to a certain point. We have to make the final decision. Thank you for your beautiful comments. I have been very busy and have read your comment over ten or more times. I only respond when I have written the words that feel right. Sometimes it takes awhile. I don't want the comments to disappear. They drive me to become a better person and writer all at the same time. It is almost a new day. May today end with a boom and tomorrow start with a bang.

      while I agree this is a wonderful life because I can see the beauty of nature and what the weather is doing outside I have felt safe in my little apartment since July. I know I should go out and walk and see what is happening and go to the beach but alas, I have become so comfortable that now I don't know how to get myself out and on the move. I am now thinking instead of adopting another cat that perhaps I should adopt a lap dog for company because then I would have to take him out at least twice a day. SIGH

      Wonderful sentiments here Dream On, especially the last few lines. I used to have penpals around the world when I was young and before the Internet. It's much easier now. Have a great day.
