I Needed To Hear The Air

Yesterday was just an ordinary day in my life. Nothing special happened. Oh, unless you mean being lost. I am. I've gone for a walk in the world. Listening and looking to what I miss. Clouds floated and birds flew. Not one stopped me from my trail. I had to go. I needed to hear the air. If only for a while. This would bring my noise to a quiet hum. The sounds that make me think of what is next. I listen to them most of the time. Always figuring out that they mean to help. The view from my world is foggy at times. Like the early mornings of November. The kind where you can hear but not quite see. I live those days a lot. In the year of the change, I walk a path that is unknown. Fresh are my steps. Looking back is gone. I am alone on this venture. I will go where it leads. I'm the kind that doesn't go the way of others. I don't do up, it leaves me tired.  Down could make me fall. I tend to walk the smaller lane. The one that makes me warm. To the right or left, I have no tend. It's the one where the wind blows and I hear the smell. You'll find me there walking slow, taking it all with.

You are what you are, and that is a GOOD writer.

You mentioned you would take Lucy in a heartbeat. If you are even slightly thinking about it, let me know. I bet we could get travel arrangements made.

We would like to walk with you.

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.
