A Mention

img_5303

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?

and

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

A Bit of a Thought

 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

contented”

So to wish to be gruntled is in no way

demented

Never heard that word said;  not one time; never said it;

But I will; very soon, and I shall not regret it

Pasta and Mushrooms

Pasta next to mushrooms

makes me happy

That’s all.

 

Now–Addesso

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

Every moment

all mixed up with calm and torment

Probably a good idea to relax and enjoy what is

all mixed up in angst and bliss

Right now

all mixed up in why and how

 

In This Particular

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.

Look

Looking forward

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

 

Get Moving

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.

Please hold.

 

 

 

Note to Self

Remember to remember

to not get too far ahead

in your head

and get all concerned

about getting it all done

at work

do what you can and

then

let it be what it be

Been here before

and somehow

it got done

or it didn’t

and the world carries on

in that way it has

I might as well relax

after all

 

 

 

Scar

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?

IN THE LIGHT

bedroom   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!
