Where Am I? – Part 2

For a long time I had been feeling frustrated and unfulfilled artistically, mainly because I’m not as successful as I want to be yet.  And if I’m honest, I was allowing my emotions of frustration to surpass and trip up my efforts for progression.  It’s hard to be at odds within yourself and expect momentum to happen.  It doesn’t.

I only needed 20 cents . . .

And I got a quarter and some pennies.  My mother in law, Momma T, was in town and came to spend some time with Haris, so I could go have some time for myself to write and do whatever.

I have a complaint . . .

Doesn’t everyone.  But just because everyone can pass gas at dinner, doesn’t mean anyone should.  Yes, I know it’s natural, complaining, gas is too, but everything natural isn’t good/necessary.  We live in an apartment, so we walk our dog 2-3 times a day.  And good dogs pee and poop on the grass, magical ones use the toilet.

Are you comfortable?

It’s been said there will never be a revolution in America, because we’re all too comfortable.  How are comfortable are you?  Sure you may want more money in your bank account, or to have or do, this or that.  But are you too comfortable to change?  Or maybe to scared?  So who are you?

Beware of Dog

We all have some bite in us right?  It’s part of our humanity.  But there are a lot of facets to our humanity that we may not access or ignite  And sometimes, a word from someone else, plants a seed or starts a small flame.

Idealist Realist

Is it that the idealist dreams, and always hopes for more,

And that the realist accepts things as they are, and continually moves forward?

Now of the two, which is living?

One chasing, one settling, both could be depressing without contentment.

Which is the way to live?

Can one be a realist in a constantly changing reality?

Can one be an idealist in an obviously flawed reality?

If an idealist means one who is hopeful about reality,

then I am an idealist.

If a realist is one who accepts reality and sees the possibility of change,

then I am a realist.

Or perhaps I need not the categorization of either terms.

Simply this is who I am, and accept that reality is my perception towards it.

Drawing a blank

I’m drawing a blank almost.  A lot happened this week that has influenced and challenged me; however, I find words escape me or I’m unsure of how to wrap what’s happening inside me into words.

A friend gave me a beautiful gift, a stamped pendent necklace.  “God will not have His work made manifest by cowards.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson.
