This Life I Call Home


There Is No Substitute

I wake up and think

Make the most of my day

No matter what happened seconds ago

Now I am on a new thought and a new direction

People around me are always a surprise

When I think people will be happy

They are not

I have many things that trigger my senses

To start me on my way

Books spark my love for life

My words on paper

Show where I am and where I am heading

Then I can add or take something away

A lot like cooking

We have to keep experimenting to get it right

In the end

It takes time and patience

When things don't go as planned

Which is most of the time

All I have to do is change my plan

Back to the drawing board

Keep it real and magnificient

Amazing life

Feel the power

Let the excitement rise inside of you

Don't stop until your lower lip starts to tremor

Then you are on your way

To a feeling that is so pleasing

You can't get enough

So satisfying

You can't wait to share it with the world

Here we go

Not even gravity can hold us down

Gypsy Rose Lee I love to hear all the fun in and about your home. Pets do make each day wonderful. They also require lots of attention. I have always had cats for pets. Other people I know have dogs and enjoy taking them for walks and out to go to the bathroom. They can't be left alone for a long time. Cats are more self- sufficient. I do believe our animals watch over us. Thank you for reading and sharing. Remember friends are here to listen. Have a beautiful night.

John Hansen Every day gives us a chance to start again. Shooting for the stars and after that anything is possible. My wife is on her way to feeling better. It is a long slow road. We have each other to fall back on and carry on. Thank you so much for all your comments and tips. Have a great evening.

Lorna Lamon Small steps in the right direction keep us happy and wanting more. We don't always have to be at our best but it would be nice once and awhile. I hope your day goes better than expected. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a wonderful night.

I have a circus right outside my door with two outside cats running about and coming up to have some dry food. Then a crazy squirrel running amok always looking for some handout. I put out some bread and in just a matter of minutes its gone. I am now considering adopting another cat or perhaps a dog to get me out and moving but I have never lived with a dog before. It is hard to decide. Sid is still among the missing but I have my thoughts. I knew him for 13 years and I have a feeling that he has found a way to get home to his Papa and is quite happy. Why this feeling? After my girl cat died in Riga, Latvia just before we adopted Sid she came in spirit and I could see her shadow and even feel her. For a couple of night while in the kitchen I have caught movement from the corner of my eye and I think it must be my boy coming to check up on me. Just my thoughts.

Lots of optimism in these positive words. Very uplifting.

Life is good, we need to make the most of each day. Start each day with a positive attitude and most of the time things will go well and according to plan. Begin feeling pessimistic and expecting the worst and that's exactly what will happen. Nice write Dream On.
