When You Have A Chance
You can see life in a different way
When we are busy
We don't have the time
To accept and allow the darkness in
Most people find other things to entertain them
It is not a question of belief
A view of the world
That makes us unique
It is not easy
When we get rattled
To understand our thoughts at hand
We are not ready to forgive
So we find new ways to let live
Our escape to the sweetest place
Where we touch upon all that do not know
Taking time to digest
Constantly entertaining thoughts
That bring a new concepts into focus
Do we make every effort to go back to the same spot?
Where we once were
On the move
Too much at once
To be someone so much lighter
Cutting through all that is not clear
Sometimes we are so very pleased
Eating steak tips that taste great
Watching t.v. shows that give us joy
Slipping back and sharing the best times
When two people can feel the passion
Turning on the heat
So it can create a soothing atmosphere
Where layers of each day
Suddenly peel away

BRENDA ARLEDGE Let me know what those things are so I can also not think. Sometimes my brain doesn't want to shut off. Tonight's the night. Our cat Charlotte is acting up. She climbs under our bed and is scratching underneath. She hasn't done that in a long time. Maybe she has Spring Fever. Then again I don't want to read into it. She is just being a cat. Finding something interesting to do. Off to sleep in a bit. Life has many surprises. They keep every day hopping. Long after the Easter Bunny has left. Thank you for reading and sharing. Every day is something new. Even if it something old with a new cover. We just never know. Have a lovely sleep. Dream big!!!!! Tomorrow may bring a whole lot of new excitement into every moment. I can't wait. Another reason why I can't sleep.

Gypsy Rose Lee I think you will always love Latvia in your heart no matter if you go back there to live or visit. It was home. You also can love Florida and make it your new home. i can't believe it has been four years. Time has a way of sneaking up on us. How are the writing jobs going? I know you will make it wherever you live. Things are good here. Work is picking up and we have little help. My wife and Charlotte send their love. Have a nice night. Thank you for sharing so many thoughts and feelings. It is so nice to care about so many things. It is also the way we get hurt and leave ourselves in the open. There has to be a happy medium. It comes with time.

I sometimes hide behind things i enjoy just so i don't have to think.
Eventually i will ...

I am at a funny kind of point in my life. I left Latvia because of the painful memories but now that I have been in the US for four years I am longing for going back there. Anyway. I hope all is well with you and wishing you a great new week ahead.

When things don't go the way we want it is sometimes easier to escape to things we enjoy doing and to block the uncomfortable things for as long as possible. it often allows us time to focus more clearly and approach it in a different way. Nice writing, Dream On.
