Everyone has a story

Everyone has a story. They tell it loud. It shows in their walk. The end of the mouth. Wrinkled or not. One might be sad. The other in the middle of a twist. Either way, their story is being told. Some yell. Others are quiet. It takes a while to find out the who, what and where. The reasons for the distress. The manner of which the tale they are acting in began. Sometimes you can figure it all out. I am a listener. A watcher. I take it all in. And, when I get all my facts, sometimes even I sing it out for all to hear.

"It shows in their walk". Pity you are in the US and cannot make the connection. Here in Oz we have a political leader who walks his loudness! It is so apt.
Keep singing out for all to hear.

If there is anything as solid as rock, it is the fact that we all have a unique story to tell. Somehow.

thoughtful and touching post-great magpie

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.
