Not Since You

Have I stopped to take in the spray of the surf or the scent of the salt air?

Have I relished the sound of rain on the roof, or a fireplace embers’ glow at night?

Have I cherished a lover’s touch or lingered over the bliss that only real love can give?

Not since you.

You were my safe haven; there to protect me from the world.  The night held no fear for me as long as you were by my side.  Can I face the sunrise with anticipation?  Or plan my tomorrows now?

Not since you.

Rocket at the Keyboard, Again

*Rocket has convinced me to let him do another blog post.  His last one was well received and I think the little guy got a bit of a big head over it. (Don’t tell him that I said that!)  This time, I told Rocket that I would type the post for him.  Although for a little dog, he does a fine job, he just doesn’t have the dexterity in his paws, so it takes him quite a Long time.  Below is Rocket’s post.  Rocket and I hope you enjoy it.  

Hello all!  I’m so glad my mommy let me do another post on her blog thingy.  For those of you out there that missed that first post and would like to read it, you can find it HERE.    Also, for those of you that are still catching up, the picture above is of me!  If you happen to see me on the sidewalk with my mom, be sure to say hi!

There have been times when my celebrity-ness is a little too much, even for me!  So Mom has me go incognito sometimes.

Most People Are Good

I believe most people are good
And most mama’s oughta qualify for sainthood

Those are the first 2 lines in the chorus of the song Most People Are Good sung by Luke Bryan.  I listen to mostly C&W music these days.  Although my taste in music varies wildly.  Those 2 lines made me think.

I DO think that most people ARE good.  I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve.  I will trust and believe what you say until you prove that I cannot.  This is just the way that I’m wired.  I’ve TRIED to be more wary or cynical of people, but I just can’t do it.  My heart won’t let me.  I just believe that in general, most people ARE good.

Cherished Scars

The wind

Whispers your name

Haunting me

Days of yesterday

Like a melody

In my head

Keeps repeating

Memories

Of yesterdays

Sweet and bitter

Cherished

Scars
