22 Aug 2016 Farewell to Rio (the flame goes out on 31st Olympics), absolutes, The Procrastinator (Daily Show John Stewart “timely” segment), “real letters”, poetry, Enomine

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.

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

I am

Trapped within

  1. *Musicians and the Music they make are like dear family to me – they can be when and wherever at any point in time…when I need them the most. Unlike flesh and blooded family and friends, the musical noted “family” is an unobstructable force that can penetrate even the darkest places the human mind and soul may wander off to….and get lost. The light in the darkness…..

    • Hopefully not just screaming, I find howling at the top of my lungs with my husband and our canine family members is very therapeutic !!! Kind of like doggy singing! A Dog Chorus! I know Easy has a fantastic howl!
