What if words came flowing out ?
What if things unsaid flew from me ?
What if the dam burst and
All I felt and held
Screamed and flowed and tumbled free ?
Oh Jesus what if ?
What if ? What if ? What if ?
Would I be free ?
Would I feel the sweet release and tumbledown ?
Where would I then be ?
Who would be with me ?
Who could embrace the flowing me ?
Who could float with the flotsam and jetsam ?
Could I ?

Skipping between radio stations yesterday, I happened upon this song. I’ve always loved it and I suppose I always knew the day would come when I would hear it for the first time after Dad’s death. Yesterday was that day. Continue reading

So here we are . It’s Thursday already and I have nothing written all week. Been busy, writing has been on my mind a lot though. On my mind. Not on the page. Didn’t know where to start . Didn’t know what to say nor how to approach what it was that needed to be said.
I’ve been on a break from alcohol since the first Monday of January because Continue reading

Ok . It’s been nearly a week since I’ve sat down to write about my continuing break from alcohol. This period of ” non- blogging ” was not planned. It just happened that way. However all the while thoughts were running through my mind as regards what I would write about, what I would share, my thoughts feelings and so on. I did not abandon you, sweet blogging site.
So what’s been happening on my journey ? How have I been coping ? Have I had any amazing insights ?
First thing to say is Continue reading

I was in visiting my Dad recently in the nursing home which is now his home. No doubt his last on this earth. I found it very emotional being there, seeing him as a shadow of himself and I was driven to writing a poem about him.
I’ve already posted and shared that poem and now I want to share this one written by the poet Paul F. Lenzy whom I follow on his site ” Poesy plus Polemics .” I was blown away by it, as it reflected a lot of what I had seen and felt visiting my Dad on his 91st birthday.
Simply click on the source above and you will be brought to his site.
Enjoy ( and explore ) !

It was yesterday when I pulled these cards, not today, but I didn’t have time afterwards to reflect on and write about them. Also I was somewhat lost with them. Kings always throw me, as do the other court cards. So I took out my books and read up on them. Also,Viv, who is a Tarot consultant, saw them and threw in a free consultation for me ! Happy days.
So what have we got in response to the question: Continue reading
