Why I write.

Writing simply  helps me breathe,

Washes my soul before I leave.
Allows me somewhere to place the ink,
To show the world what I think.

Letters, words and rhyme
Are part of my being all the time.
Life without a place to write
Would be like sleep without the night.

A place for love, humour and pain,
Somewhere to be time and again.
Without the pen I wouldn’t be me,

To not exist, to not be free.

 

I would love to know why you write, why you do  what you do.

. Leave me a comment please.

 

The Anti Bucket List

image

So many of us put our dreams on a list, a bucket list, a to do list or whatever name you care to give such a thing. How dissapointed you would be if every time you read “the list” you saw all the things you had “not” managed.
A failure that’s what, even if you told yourself that the two or three you had completed or ticked were brilliant and awesome. Each time you looked you would see “I haven’t made it yet,” In big letters before your eyes. The dreams you hadn’t ticked, the things you hadn’t completed would catch your eye first deflate your spirits and *sigh* make you feel flat. My proposal is that we keep an “I Have Done list.”… “Tahdah!”

Okay the name needs work, we will get to that at the end.
It could be written on the best paper or parchment, in your best handwriting; Italics I think. Such a thing could be displayed in a cabinet like an Egyptian scroll and tied with scarlet ribbon. But best of all it would be a list of all your “firsts” your “look at me moments.” With not a one disappointment in sight.
How motivating, pride inducing, blooming wonderful would it be.
1. I grew my hair
2. I passed my driving test
3. I kissed a girl
4. I kissed a boy
5. I ate desert before dinner
6. I ate a cake to myself 😋
7. I gave blood
8. I am self employed
9. I fell in love
10. Survived my first broken heart 🎉

Of course you could expand or shrink it accordingly, if you have been an adventurer you may begin with your fist solo trip. But I think you get the idea a list of accomplishments.
There would be many more satisfied proud people if we each compiled and read our accomplished list often. We spend so much time on negative unachievable dreams. We bash our own heads with the proverbial stick that we collected ourselves just for the job. I am not saying don’t dream, dream huge and frequently, but as in all things once committed to paper, it stops being a wonderful dream and changes to a taunt, a tongue poking name calling one that you wish you’d never written. Mostly we put on extravagant, expensive, maybe if we won the lottery type of dreams on a bucket list… unachievable to the most of us. Let us begin being realistic, be kind to ourselves.

“What Is The Meaning Of This Quote?”

Today I came across this quote, it is not mine I can not lay claim to it or find the person who penned it, but if you take it at face value we human beings are horrendous house guests.
Maybe the  lesson is humility? Just maybe it is to live in harmony? Or it could mean to live, care and nurture the earth, like we would tend the garden if it was all we had to feed us. Well it looks to me like we lost, failled the challenge, destined to stand in the corner and wear the proverbial dunces hat!

I think C.S. Lewis had read the quote and this is his interpretation above. Or maybe he was hovering around a portal and  talking to Aslan, who knows?
So I would like your oppinions, if you have a moment…  What do you think the quote is trying to say? Or do you know it’s originator?
I look forward to hearing what you think. *Waving* dying to read your responses, I know you won’t let me down.
