It is very good to be feeling good right this minute —
I suddenly noticed today
— and what a find —
that nothing hurts
in body or mind
— and how often does that happen?
I suddenly realized
I’d better give a thought
to the lovely and sublime
that surround us
all the time
Even though the crass and cruel
scream for our attention
seems like the wonderful stuff
deserves at least a mention
Feeling disgruntled from time to time
…….and I don’t realize just what gives.
Feeling gruntled seems better, by wide and by far;
but I’m not really sure what that is.
Obviously, I had to research the meaning;
and it’s ” humorous, pleased, satisfied, and
So to wish to be gruntled is in no way
Never heard that word said; not one time; never said it;
But I will; very soon, and I shall not regret it
Pasta next to mushrooms
makes me happy
This could be the last best moment of my life
all mixed up in love and strife
This is true
all mixed up with what we knew
all mixed up with calm and torment
Probably a good idea to relax and enjoy what is
all mixed up in angst and bliss
all mixed up in why and how
In this particular
time and space
There appears to be grace
all over the place
With no need to struggle
or finagle or strive
It’s a very good night
to be alive.
to being in the moment
Lost in thought
Fixating on the perpendicular peripherals
Tripping over clutter and chaos
Finding my way back to the center

I just remembered to remember that exercise is often the key to beating the blues
so I’m on my way ……..
This is only a test.
Let me see if it works right away. Instant Karma.
Remember to remember
to not get too far ahead
in your head
and get all concerned
about getting it all done
do what you can and
let it be what it be
Been here before
it got done
or it didn’t
and the world carries on
in that way it has
I might as well relax
Scar seems harsh at first look
but that’s not always so
Scars can map out our stories
and the whole ebb and flow
Even the wrinkles and the gravitational pull
tell a saga of living a life that is full
I look in the mirror and see who I am
Would I be any different if I lived it again?
I KEEP READING THAT ONE ONE OF THE REASONS FOR INSOMNIA CAN BE TOO MUCH LIGHT IN THE ROOM AND THE USE OF COMPUTERS OR TVS IN THE BEDROOM AND HOW IT MESSES WITH THE NATURAL LIGHT AND DARK CYCLES. AND I JUST READ THAT IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS WITHOUT ELECTRONICS, PEOPLE SLEPT ALL NIGHT LONG. WELL, THAT’S QUITE A LEAP I’D SAY!
SERIOUSLY, I DO NOT ACCEPT THAT INSOMNIA SUDDENLY CAME INTO PLAY AFTER ELECTRICITY WAS DEVELOPED. NOBODY WORRIED OR PACED BEFORE THEN?
I GET THE WHOLE LIGHT-AND-DARK-CYCLE ROUTINE BUT I KNOW THERE IS MORE TO IT THAN THAT. I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT WE HAVE ELECTRICITY SO THAT WHEN I REALLY CANNOT SLEEP, THERE IS SOMETHING TO DO BESIDES LIE THERE AND FEEL STRESSED AND DISTRAUGHT—-LIKE WATCH A TV SHOW ON MY I-PHONE OR LISTEN TO A PODCAST. BACK IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS THEY JUST GOT TO BE AWAKE IN THE DARK, POSSIBLY WITH WILD ANIMALS LURKING ABOUT.
WHEN I AM NOT HAVING A BOUT WITH INSOMNIA, I CAN SLEEP IN THE LIGHT, IN THE DARK AND IN THE MIDST OF NOISE AND MUSIC, SO WHILE I UNDERSTAND THAT LIGHT MAY INTERFERE WITH OVERALL SLEEP AND HEALTH PATTERNS, AND THAT IDEALLY IT SHOULD BE ALL DARK AND QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, I PROPOSE THAT IT IS NOT ALWAYS THE IMMEDIATE PROBLEM AND AT TIMES CAN HELP WITH RELAXATION AND BECOME A PART OF THE SOLUTION SO………….
LET THERE BE LIGHT!
