For some people it just hurts too much when they smile.
Who decides what is ‘normal’?
Will you remember
The sound of my voice
Or will you forget
When I’m gone?
Remember the rain
As it ran down my face
Remember the chill
In the air.
Snow on my lashes
You commented then
Like diamonds you said
Will you remember
The walk that I had
My smile or the colour
Of my hair?
I will remember
Until darkness is nigh
And the universe
Explodes in despair.
But for the moment
Remember it well
And walk in the light
Of our memories.
Ideas come from idle hands.
Don’t you just love the ambiguity of life?
I was walking down the street the other day, (yes, I say walking even though I’m in a wheelchair) and I heard something very interesting. I was not intending to listen to a conversation, but it is inevitable when large groups of people are together. The conversation went something like this:
“He’s going to kill again!”
“He doesn’t mean to, he doesn’t know any better.”
Now at this point it did cross my mind that perhaps this was a conversation for the police to hear. And yes, I slowed my forward motion just a tad so I could hear the rest of the conversation. Again, it crossed my mind that this might be a stupid thing to do as perhaps I didn’t want to be a witness to a crime? But Curiosity will always win. After all, I might get a great story out of this!
I did sneak a peek at the two individuals who were speaking. I might be called to identify against them. They seemed to be in their mid 30s, well dressed, well spoken (except for the allegedly illegal crime). They didn’t seem to be in any great hurry and it was the perfect day for loitering. I also wasn’t in any hurry and besides, Curiosity!
It was also at that point that I started to wonder about all the conversations we hear, whether intentionally or not and just how they affect us. This conversation got my creative juices on high alert. Was there a story here that I could tell (fictionally of course)? It was starting to sound like a movie of the week or maybe a series! I really needed to hear more!
The conversation continued and while I was enlightened as to the actual topic, I was also crestfallen. My creative juices had a little too much vinegar in them.
“I gave him a book on how to do it. He didn’t read the book.”
“He’s not a reader. He figures everybody should know how to grow tomatoes, but he doesn’t.”
They were talking about tomato plants! I tried very hard not to be heard laughing as I went on my merry way. At the very least I got something to write about for my Sunday post. And I should not have been so quick to judge something I did not understand. I think that’s a little more common than we would like.
You don’t have to have tears to cry.
Perfection should be strived for not bragged about.
An argument has two side, otherwise it’s a monologue.

Retired from the University of Texas and too old to play soccer anymore. Now, in the twilight of his years, time is spent writing in this blog, hiking and exploring Texas Parks, photography, working out, gardening and tending to the five ponds he built .
