Grounded




Sometimes when life appears to be coming at you all at once...


fame...wealth...sickness...death...regret...courage...overtime...
not enough work...late bills...car trouble...decisions...
new job...new house...new location...empty pantry... 
kids...twins...triplets...worry...options...
doubt...pride...ego...Love...infatuation...promotion...
responsibility...weakness...sorrow...pity...deadlines...
college tuition...more options...more decisions...teenagers...
terrible twos...and threes...exhaustion...parents...laughter...
friendships...family...life...





It is very important to stay grounded through it all.

Summer of Love







Summer of love I love your memory
Smiling, holding hands, wining and dining
Laughing, playing, with so much life and free
Always together, our souls combining

Running your fingers through my long black hair
Our sweet mouths were closed while our brown eyes talked
A place of millions; we were not aware
Your safe arms holding me close while we walked

No one else can play our instrumental
It’s an unduplicated melody
One we stumbled upon accidental
I smile when I think of the history

Our love rises above the solar wind
And pulls stronger than the greatest black hole
A love so mighty we can not rescind
Alive and powerful we can’t control

Summer ended …our love will always be
Summer of love…I love your memory

Why are so many songs and books based on summer loves?

I would be remiss if I didn't add this song to this post : )  While it proved challenging to find an instrumental version under five minutes, with decent quality, and without ads, this one fit the bill.



Did you found this post to be unique, thought provoking, 
and enjoyable?

Embrace





There are people that live life with their arms wide open,
Receiving and accepting everything.

The odd thing is,
If you don’t embrace a few things in life
You end up empty handed.

So embrace.

Always let your light shine.

Into the Deep





Sometimes,
when we
wait a little longer…
squint into the Milky Way…
prolong your thoughts…
explore mysteries…
allow our taste to linger…
hear with our eyes,
and see with  our fingers...
Then, we will begin our ascent
Into the Deep.

We will summon unknown senses.

See colors with our eyes closed.   
Smell melodies that flew past us
and hear aromatic scents.
We will tastes words that skipped our palette
and gain the ability to 
But only
if we go
up
Into the Deep.
