This is my walk
Nearly every day
I say hello to flowers and trees and tall grass
as they sparkle in the late afternoon sun
My heart records their incredible beauty and sad decay.

This is my walk
it doesn’t matter how many times I start over,
only that I do.
hypnosis is my love,
I can do this.
I am good at this.
but the time is now
to return to what I love and what I can do well.
I will begin again.

broken, twisted little branches
held together with bits of string and sticks and stems
wound up tighter than necessary to protect the pieces of me

We have a storm coming, and the sky is a misty, leaded grey. Highlighted against [...]
dreams and wishes are made of moondust

we wish they would, but they do not,
we might even pray that they will
but they can not
god will not change him for you
My dreams are brightly colored movies that I live in, with all five, or six, senses in working order. It hasn’t been like this for me always, and I ascribe the change to my senior citizen brain.
My dreams are so real that I don’t feel like I am dreaming. They are usually pleasant, and [...]
