Hi there! I guess I’m writing to you this morning instead of before bed like I said I was going to….guess the truth is it doesn’t matter does it? It’s best to live a life free from Absolutes – putting yourself in a box without a door! We’ll reach each other no matter when I write because you’ll come visit when you can and that could be at 2 in the morning or midnight. Such is the beauty of “dimensional travel!” With our current technology, we can see each other when and wherever we want to! Better “live” but it’s nice we have video options!
I’m kind of procrastinating doing other things I should be doing too lol…don’t know why, but that train of thought lead me to this Daily Show’s John Stewart 19 June 2008 segment called, The Procrastrinator! What’s interesting is, after watching this it feels “timely.” There is a de ja vois feel to what was happening back then to what has happened in Washington….what is still happening in Washington! Procrastination…..for what….for whom?!
In my personal case of procrastination, I have a letter from my Mom and our dear friend Les sitting on my desk to reply to and I’ve been putting off putting pen to paper. The truth is because I’m a blogger and put so much of myself here, it’s hard to write “real” letters sometimes. I feel like I don’t have anything left to write about! Unfortunately for me, because my Mom and Les don’t always get a chance to read my blogs, I can’t rely on that for keeping them in the “know.” Since I’ve started blogging regularly again, my “real letters” have become very short. Sigh. I will “write” today!
We enjoyed the closing ceremony for the Olympics last night….it was a recording but it still felt like we were there. I have to say I cried watching it……after the flame was extinguished I found myself saying, “turn it back on!” It was like watching them put out the sun…that kinetic sculpture was just so much like watching the sun is for me. I would love to have that sculpture in my backyard lol! I pray they find a special place to display it in Brazil – to remind them of the light their home brought to the world for these 16 days.
Poems from my past that seem time to share:
No Words by Jackie Schmidt 7 Dec 2006
When life has stripped me, split me like pale wood
The fire burns me ever so easily
There are no words
Only a scream will do
I know I am not in my pyre alone
But for a moment it would feel
All is against me
I am an aberration, a virus in the mega system
It is seeking through events
To eradicate me
I am resilient
Born and bred to be a survivor, a warrior
I will continue to evolve and change
As I travel through time
“It” cannot defeat me for I am the most worthy adversary
“It” has ever known………..
Trapped within by Jackie Schmidt 27 Dec 2006
Sometimes my thoughts should travel farther
Than the span of the universe that is my brain
Somehow they swirl round and round
Never escaping the vortex of untamed storms within me
Occasionally a word will pass from my lips
A tear from my eye
Gestures will be shaped by my hands
But most of the time
