Ramblings of a Tired Mind
Now Playing: Free writing and Feelings
Topic: Ramblings
 

You know, I have a lot going on right now with my gram dying and the up coming surgery on my knee. And it really brings to mind just how little we say to one another on a daily basis. Do we stop and tell those around us that they matter? Even in the smallest of small ways? That, hey, we don't talk much, but those cute little emails mean so much. A gentle squeeze on the shoulder as you walk by. A smile and nod of recognition, it means so much that I know, that you know, that you noticed me. Because eventually, everybody needs someone that they can lean on… eventually.

The Eyes of the Beast
Mood:  special
Now Playing: Just free writing

      You have stared into the eyes of the beast. Cold golden orbs with a dot of black riveting you to the spot. A snarl of a curled upper lip warning you not to move. You are frozen to the spot, still as death itself, quiet as death, not even the falling snow broke the stare between you and the wolf.  A big male beauty. The snow peppering his pelt only added to his allure. He took a step forward, two steps, then three. One more and he will be close enough to launch himself at you.  But you still hold your ground. You know if you got up from the ground where you slipped and fell, you would be his next meal. He took that next step towards you. You could feel his breath on your face. Smell the rotting meat from his last meal stuck between his teeth…..

     "Really…REALLY! Adolphus," The wolf stuck his tongue out and licked her cheek.  "I am going to have to brush your teeth! Yuck. Serious doggie breath!" The thump of the large, black wolf's tail beat on the floor as the tongue shot out and licked her cheek again. Nicky laughed and ruffled the top of his head. "I love you too, you big old mutt."

      "Now, I need to work on this scene. Back up boy." She gestured with her hand and the wolf backed up. "Good boy." She turned the tape recorder on and started all over again… 'You have stared into the eyes….."

My own ramblings
Mood:  cheeky

I get the biggest kick out of the twenty-somethings of today. For instance,

"Hey old man? Mind you own business or I'm gonna kick your ass!"

And you mutter under your breath, "you and what army?"

These kids don't realize that we were the generation that hitch-hiked across the

U.S. Most likely barefoot with flowers...BY OUR SELVES! Or we would

"road-trip" until we ran out of gas. Then we would lay around the

car, which was parked on the side of the road- stoned, making shapes out of the

clouds until some other group road-tripping, would stop and offer us a can of

gas or a ride to the nearest gas station. Which we did after we ALL laid back

down around both cars, making shapes out

of the clouds.

(Man, the times we had. It was great. we partied

until the cows came home. At which point you asked the person next to you if he

was seeing the cow too. Then, said person, would tell you to sit up cause you

were still looking up at the damn clouds.) HMMM-mm

Fear is just not the same thing anymore.

You hear more and more about the older people fighting back…shooting

back, fighting back with their canes…. That's us…and we're not going to take it

lying down.

[Oxy- Mooorrr-On for today: "Road Construction Ahead"} should read: "Traffic

jam for the next 10 miles and 65 minutes!"]

Mood:  not sure
Now Playing: Now Playing? Not Me!

     I am off to see about my knee. I know he won't do anything today, but I sure hope I get some good drugs. The pain is driving me insane!
