Legacy

ImageI will pass through this life but once. I will have one opportunity to leave my impression on this world. Each fleeting moment provides an opportunity to leave my stamp on a single place in time , to leave my song, my brand of love, my contribution to mankind, my wisdom, my spark of hope for others, my belief in dreams. My hope is, that these things that matter to me the most, will live on in the lives of those I touch in this life, and leave behind. Reflected in these pages is a sonata of who I am. Writing is a way for me to sing my song, and to record it in time, so that it may take flight for years to come and continue to play on in the hearts of those who have the ears to listen.

Going With The Flow

Image

I consider myself a driven, goal oriented person who believes in following dreams, and not giving away your power over your own destiny to any mortal being or worldly circumstance. With that being said, by no means does that mean I don’t live daily in the knowledge that despite all my efforts to live my life happy and successful, there are lessons to learn, trials to endure and abundant blessings bestowed upon  me by one, despite all I do, or don’t do.  To some it’s fate, to me its God.   May I never forget to give that credit where it is due.

Imagination

If I sit among the flowers I can become one for just one fleeting moment.

If I observe  butterflies in flight , I can fly among them for a brief second.  

If I look to the heavens and watch the clouds floating by I can rest atop one and float away.

 May I never be remiss in seizing the fleeting moments in time that allow me to let my imagination soar beyond the restraints of this earthly existence.

Fellow Travelers

If you envision life as a Journey, and I do, you will realize that along the road there will be people who enter your life that are meant to travel with you, some for a short time, others for a long time, some are meant to travel alongside you until you have reached the journeys end in this life. Each fellow traveler has a purpose that matters to you, and one that matters to them in their Journey as well. It’s all meant to be. Sometimes  you are lucky enough to reconnect with a fellow traveler that has gone down a different path somewhere further down the road. It’s just the way the Journey is, and it’s all good.

First Crush

 

First Crush

 

I am remembering a boy, named Gary, Fourth grade. I noticed a crowd forming in the lunchroom and here was the cutest boy standing on top of the lunch table singing I want to hold your hand (Beatles). Some kids came over to me to tell me he was singing to me.  I remember the butterflies and the feeling of walking home from school as if on a cloud. I was told he was going to come by my house with some other friends that day, to say Hi. I remember waiting, looking out the window, primping in the mirror of my Moms vanity as I waited. I remember him coming down my street, and my mom letting me go outside to say hello. Funny I have no memory of what happened after that regarding Gary. I guess the most memorable part was that first time feeling of being noticed by a boy and how special it felt.
