Beginning Maybe

A Design for Me

It is yesterday’s news, but you might read it some distant tomorrow, never knowing the when of it all. It fell apart again, but no one knew the signs; they were too busy in their lives of satisfactory rhyme.

The dregs in the pot that provided the coffee could perhaps illuminate, but by then, it was probably too late. Broken hearts litter the ground where discordant words often find their sound.

A whisper of waking to the morning linen gives hope, but the bed contains only one body, insufficient for an incident of joy.

Tomorrow is the predicate of yesterday, but today wends away. Fortune is no lasting friend but slips off with a passing wind. One seldom remembers but never forgets a love vanishing to purchase what survives beyond regret.

Familiar, those bonds forged over a bundle of years breaking down into stifled tears disallowed to tumble from wary eyes. No one left to ensure feeling together thrives.

2022 Creativity Project – Valentine’s Day

Making Possible The Impossible

Everyone feels defeated at times; the world and its problems overwhelm the mind and emotions. Personal setbacks also seem insurmountable, but creativity, positivity, and prayer help everyone overcome.

Prayer can settle the mind and help ideas arise, which upset can cloud. Having a possibility outlook, where positive material is brought into the intellect regularly, also adds confidence to a person’s toolbox. Creativity may supply unusual solutions or unique rationales that incite action and bring courage.

Asking others to share a burden or soliciting advice can be helpful, but these can also confuse. Many things require individual attention. There are deep wells of ability in each person when accompanied by a belief in oneself.

Treating others and ourselves with love is advised by the Bible, and it has many benefits. It gives the right impetus to allow us to conquer impossibility and rids us of many negativities which seize control and convince us of inadequacies.

Remember, sometimes goals are not accomplished immediately; great things may require a commensurate investment of time.

Dragon’s in Love – Jo Ann J. A. Jordan

Happy Valentine’s Day! – May love always find you and fill your life with encouragement and inspiration.

Prompt
Smile, look at yourself in a mirror, and say, ‘I believe in myself. I can fulfill my dreams. I am loved, and I love who I am and am becoming.’ After these affirmations, work on a creative project formerly neglected because it is a considerable challenge.

Gratitude List
I am thankful:
For central heat.
For warm clothes.
For things my Mom taught me.
For hope.
For God’s love holding me even when I do not notice.

Thank you for your time. Please like this post, make your way back, share the site, and comment if you like.

2022 Creativity Project – Feb. 1

I think I shall be happy to keep to date going forward.

Living Time

It could be Tuesday, though any day would do as well. Francis never thought to specify this time, and it had simply become too dangerous to stay when they were.

He did not often have Morgan with him on such jaunts, but he had invited her to engage in some tourism. Now he was more thoroughly convinced than before that he preferred her safely at home.

In his careful examination, it appeared that this snafu was due to no malfunction or mistake of his own. He cleared his reports, but those revealed that someone, somewhere, somehow, somewhen was purposefully ignoring his longstanding imperative directive on the methods and devices he held total responsibility for creating.

The misuse of proprietary developments was a severe problem. No one else could set the variables straight, and Francis entertained a suspicion even he might fail. It was an unprecedented disaster.

He realized earnest prayer was in order. Action must be taken with haste. It seemed a saboteur was in the machine, actively fooling with time.

Tanka
Eagle in full flight
Knowing Earth is bountiful
Stretching forth talons
Spying the many creatures;
We aware power features.

Prompt
I riffed on the thought that it was Tuesday in the depths of night, do something similar and create something. You could pick an object, sound, conversation, whatever catches your imagination.

Gratitude List
I am thankful:
1. I went outside without the dogs and took some photos.
2. Solitude.
3. Powerblocks.
4. Imagination.
5. Creativity.
