TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE

Company LogoAlways.   Such fleeting moments in life.  Time seems to steal away our thoughts and create havoc where only peace should be.   I’ve found myself racing against it so many times and waking up in the morning just exhausted thinking of the amount of time that I’ve wasted on things that really don’t advance life’s situations ahead at all.    Then, in a short panic, try to regroup and breathe.  Thinking. Momentarily frightened.  Wishing.

When you’re a child, you could play in your room for hours and hours and hours it would seem.   When in actuality, it was closer to exactly an hour at most.  That’s the glory of innocence, Time is something you feel in the moment you will never run out of yet soon you do.

As my grandmother would say so many times when she’d hear young ones wishing, “I can’t wait until I grow up.”

“Don’t wish your life away.  You’re only young for such a short time, but you’re old for the rest of your life.”

With so many choices around us every day making us wake up with  a start, taking a moment to breathe in deep and slow may not stop Time, but this small movement can help bring back the peace, clearing our heads.   If only for our sanity, even if it’s only taking a moment out for us to enjoy, for just a short, borrowed amount of Time.

I HAVE SPOKEN!

Geez!! I’ve been working on this website for the past few days trying to get things at least presentable for the public world.   This is what I’ve come up with and it’s going to stay this way for quite a while.   I mean it, too.  I really mean it.   What day is today?  July 25, a Saturday.  I make this little note to myself just as a checks and balance.   Hahaha.   I like it. I need these things.  So there.  I have spoken.

ALAS! I’VE EATEN MY SANDWICH

This sandwich was my lunch, but I have eaten it beforehand. However, it was healthy, multi-grain bread with deli turkey, freshly cut , and paired with fresh, sliced American cheese from the deli.  Along with a lovely tomato and freshly washed (not plastic bag) piece of leaf lettuce and sliced onions. All sandwiched between the multi-grain bread prepared with Miracle Whip and dollops of mustard for flair. Yummy.

But now it’s gone, and I’m left searching for more. So here’s a tip. Don’t eat your sandwich before lunch for brunch because then you’ll be left with nothing else to munchety munch.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

To all.

The snow has fallen
A White Christmas is here
Family love surrounds me
From afar and near.

This year’s soon to be over
Its memories flood back
From January to now
An emotional attack.

An Oklahoma start
With my grandmother dear
Although things looked bleak
My calling was still there.

Three months passed by
A huge change began
To Texas I moved
Back to work for “The Man.”

This “Patentland” challenge
Was something to face
I can either sink or swim
But succeed with such simple Grace.

Because there’s a new position open
To transfer back to Detroit family
Leaving the warmth of the South
I gladly accept the opportunity.

So I’ve finished this trip
Through the cockles of my brain
And posted them here
To share on Christmas Day!

FEEL FREE

Sometimes when you’re feeling blue, you can look out the window and get inspired.
An acquaintance of mine did so just today. He looked out the window and wrote:

“Birds are free. As free as they want to be.
The wind under their wings, they fly over the sea.
They fly over the land as far as the eye can see.
Oh, but to be a bird. Oh, but to be free.”

OBSTREPEROUS

Today I share with you a new word I’ve learned today. Obstreperous. It means to be noisy and difficult to control. Also, a synonym of unruly, unmanageable, disorderly, undisciplined, uncontrollable, rowdy, disruptive, truculent, difficult, rebellious, mutinous, riotous, out of control, wild, turbulent, uproarious, boisterous. You get the idea.

To be used in a sentence: “The plaintiffs are being obstreperous.”

So, when someone calls you out as being a little “fussy”, just say, “Hey, if they weren’t being so obstreperous, I wouldn’t be so fussy.” Then promptly hold your head up high, do a pirouette and politely sashay away.
