Thoughts Unleashed

Some say it best not to say everything that passes through your mind. And while I agree, I object! Take for instance the risk of keeping the peace versus being known. Walking on eggshells is painful and inhibits personal growth. I need to roam and if my choices disturb you, well guess what I will say!

Sorry. Yeah! My go to phrase when I am feeling bad. So I drink up! Coffee has been known to be both good and bad for your health. Go figure. It certainly has gotten me in trouble before. I wake up to see nothing in the world has changed since the beginning. When will we learn?

So I get on my soapbox and preach. I can be preachy!

That is me in my preachy mood. Pulling up my big girl pants and telling the world how to live. What do I know? Lots. Like I know that love makes joy makes peace. And couldn’t we all use a bit of grace in our lives? Lord knows I forgiven much. So go be happy! I will too.

“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.” ~Henry David Thoreau

Into the Woods

Escape
walking into the woods
I sense rejection
open spaces offer freedom.
Travel forward

into the unknown
possibilities offering
encounters never happening
on a path safely groomed.
Looking backward

is a teacher marking
“you had traveled here
and nothing will be found
but morsels of despair.”
Presently

a calf musing
posturing moose keeping watch
standing still in silence
Thoreau’s “The Maine Woods”.
You have come to do no harm.
