To be, To create

In the last 20 months,

we have all been through,

so much.

I have been giving lots,

of thought lately.

What do I need to stay,



to keep being strong,



I am blessed,

more than many,

I have pretty robust health,

I have love and friendship,

that surrounds me.

I have a job,

I love,

a job that I believe,

makes a difference,

in lives.

I have a home,

I adore.

I am safe,

I am happy.

I have a relationship,

that brings me joy,

that grounds me,

and gives me wings.

Last year,

I lost my mother,

last year,

I took on too much,

last year,

I was vulnerable,

I needed to fill my time.

Last year,

I shared time with amazing,


I grew,

I healed,

I learned to be me,


we keep learning to be us over and over again, we change, we hurt, we grow, we love and are loved.

This year,

I will pull back,

from many of my activities,

this year,

I will work,

I will love,

my family,

my friends,

my lovely lady,

this year,

I will write.

I will probably blog,

quite a bit,


I will write the stuff,

that bubbles in me,

the stuff I need time to retrieve.

I hope some of you,

will understand my pulling back.

I need to be,

I need to create.

Later girls,
