Daily Journal 2018: Internal Struggles

There are moments in life when you hit a wall and you just can't get over it. These moments can cause a cataclysm of emotions to erupt in the mind and when no answer can be found, frustration erodes the swallow layers of the self. It is then one must dig to the depths to… Continue reading Daily Journal 2018: Internal Struggles

Summer Musings 2016 #16 – The Journey of Life, Pace Yourself

The journey of life is better experienced if you pace yourself. If you choose to go too fast, go after the high life, live in the realms of vanity, you will fizzle fairly quickly. And... If you tread slowly, almost at a stand still, rejecting change, motivation or opportunity; you are sure to be left… Continue reading Summer Musings 2016 #16 – The Journey of Life, Pace Yourself

Summer 2016 Musings #15 – Dinning on breakfast in the Sunroom

This week was exhausting. No one told me that wielding a paint brush and hauling paint tins, would be such a work out. After painting windows, walls and floors for three days, my body ached. So, it was with pleasure that I supped in the evening cool of said room. As the evening stars peeked… Continue reading Summer 2016 Musings #15 – Dinning on breakfast in the Sunroom

Summer 2016 Musings #14 – Green Green Grass

Last summer was brutal on my sparse garden. I planted a few palms a few years back and they suffered. The four lowly plants to the north wall, had been burned black. Yes, you heard right Burnt Black! This year, I vowed that it would be different. So far, my weekly yard soaks have encouraged… Continue reading Summer 2016 Musings #14 – Green Green Grass

Summer 2016 Musings #13 – Pitter Patter on the Roof

As I put on a fresh coat of paint on my summer home renovation project, I feel the hot noon day transition with the cool winds. My arms burn from pushing and pulling the paint brush along ten feet of wall space. I turn and look at a cluster of clouds. There is a storm… Continue reading Summer 2016 Musings #13 – Pitter Patter on the Roof

Summer 2016 Musings #12 – Chilling in my Sunroom

Its the morning after Labour Day and I am tired. Still, I manage to wake with the new dawn and thank God for another beautiful morning. I woke quickly. Pulling myself from a dream that showed more misbehavior than happy adventures. There is no adjustment needed for me when I wake up in the mornings.… Continue reading Summer 2016 Musings #12 – Chilling in my Sunroom

Summer 2016 Musings #11 – Construction Changes

As the heat intensifies, the changes on my mom's house progresses. I thought it too much, to expect us to bear this persistent summer's heat under the present conditions. According to official weather records, earth has seen 12 straight months of record temperatures in 137 years, of record keeping. The planet is only getting hotter. So,… Continue reading Summer 2016 Musings #11 – Construction Changes

Summer 2016 Musings #10 – Disappointments

A disappointment is not readily admitted where pride exists. Feelings are not loyal to their owners. They disclose to any one who would observe, what the truth of the matter is. Sometimes, even the owner would blind their own sight to deny the reality of things. But luckily, the time we spend in the dark… Continue reading Summer 2016 Musings #10 – Disappointments

Summer 2016 Musings #9 – The Willie Lynch Syndrome

It is not beneath us to respect one another; young to old, man to woman, friend to foe. Today, I was in the Old Hope Road KFC waiting at the counter for my number to be called. The server said, 428 and a short, dark man, walking with a agitated stride which caused him to… Continue reading Summer 2016 Musings #9 – The Willie Lynch Syndrome
