from my window ...

Happy New Year

I'm looking out the kitchen window
The inlet is bouncing and waving
The misty wet is traveling
Among the colored trees
Too wet to go outside
Indoors for me today
Still I enjoy the quiet
The peace that surrounds this
Glorious vacation place
I looked for over twenty four years
Here .. there and almost
to find this place
this ground
These trees
this water
To find my soul
My heart
My home

Happy 2010 to ALL of You ...

Happy New Year to you too!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
