John's Wide Wonderful World of Creativity

Heather has a Bachelor's Degree in English from Moravian College and has been freelance writing for more than 12 years.

Here's to a guy who was always full of ideas

In a good way, of course

A face full of humor, optimism and a wicked smile

Able to fulfill his day to day duties and still have time to dream

Of a life beyond punching a time clock

And making sure his 401K is filled to the brim

Practical idea but not what makes life all the more interesting

Wanted to be the best all around person to everyone

On his terms and no one else's

Thought integrity was better than brownnosing to the boss

Believed in being an active participant instead of a bystander

It was better to have thoughts and suggestions

Instead of just floating through life going by the status quo

He had a notebook full of dreams, schemes and ideas

Just not enough hours in the day to make them a reality

Well, there was time but sleep was more important

Staying awake while on the job was a much better idea

Than being another casualty of being a midnight road warrior

Stumbling blocks and curveballs par for the course

In the daily life of this active imaginative inventor

Never lets a setback get him down for long

Always plotted the next move or course of action

Had his weekends usually relatively mapped out

As a seesaw balancing act between family, relationships and fun

Does it always go according to plan?

Not as much as he would like; but he still strived to be there for everyone

Decided after a long and tedious night on the job

To pull out that tape recorder he had close by and made a few ideas

Be put on the record for posterity and just in case he forgot them later

Hard to say what those mental notes will become

But it was more fun in the doing the journey than

Wondering what the end results were going to be

Made it an adventure without intending to be one

In the meantime, focused on the time clock once again

Those bills won't pay themselves.

Not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything you want to do.

Not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything you want to do.
