You feel like home to me.
I’m feeling a bit guilty lately. And cranky about it. Forgive me for what I am about to say. Please.
There are so many writers I follow, but I’m falling behind in reading them. Know that I wish I could spend more time doing exactly that. But life, commitments, goals, and other passions are pulling me at me always. Sadly, there are only 24-hour days, and I have to prioritize those things which require self-preservation, devote the correct amount of time to those things which have deadlines, and choose wisely where I spend my free time. This leaves me with little time for reading every post on every single blog I follow. I’m sorry.
Know that I will as much as I can when I physically have the time to do so. And when I do and have liked a piece, it’s because it has struck a chord in me. I may not always comment, though, if I have a lot of pieces I’d like to read. You are all precious to me, and your words and thoughts inspire me, thrill me, and even make me laugh appropriately! I do most certainly miss spending as much time on your blogs as I previously did.
Am I forgiven?
sweet birdies quartet
a smile escapes me
coffee is brewing
yummy breakfast awaits me
sunday, reading day
true crime story first
one book down, now another
this time poetry
reading all morning
it is time for a long nap
woke up ravenous
finished a big lunch
much more reading to be done
trying for three more
a restful sunday
weekend sadly over now
work again monday
The exquisite tales spun
come to a close once again.
Leaving adventure behind
and me, in agony.
A pause in the decadence,
excitement and joy.
Left hanging in the abyss
after the final scene.
Oh, but the good stories
last forever though,
revived again and again.
These treasures never die.
May the next threshold
open up a tasteful selection
to fill my needs and desires.
I’m looking for a classic.
from the boredom,
setting imagination in motion.
jabs to injure the curious ones
it may have hurt
but who’s crying now?
life is rich when…
you have fantasy
a big vocabulary
dealing in intellect
choose to enhance your potential
Who doesn’t love free?!?!
of stuff to do
things to read
thoughts to write
and falling behind
Pressured and agitated
need to step back
my normal life cycle
trying to prioritize
I hope my friends
it’s not you but me
Took on a big chunk
and catching up
Busy and isolated
stuck more in my head
than is necessary
for my health
and recognizing it
Seems I’m not the only one
My thoughts are unique or are they?
Am I an original or just a borrower from the inspirers of my past?
I fear the quality words will all have been spoken.
I wonder when it’ll all have been said.
Will my voice be muted before I die?
Before I leave my mark…
