When not working this means creating, reading, writing, and thinking while gazing out a window in silence… glorious priceless silence… something that can be hard to find in this fast-paced, social media, techno-crazy world.
This poem is based on a recent morning in my life, and I decided to share it in case any of you are finding it hard to stay in touch with your inner child.
The trees are frozen stiff with frost.
I don my gloves, my scarf, my hat,
It sneaks its fingers through my veins
Where did that winter magic go?
The childhood me is still inside
So instead of chopping wood I go
I vow this day to make a start
Each day will be a new blank page
with all the negativity.
The birds now beckon with their play
The trees are dressed in elegant frost.
I choose to think pink because it makes my heart giggle, and that’s the simple and honest truth of it. Thinking Pink is about staying young at heart, no matter how old I get.
Do something today that makes your heart giggle… and smile. It doesn’t have to be pink… it just has to make you happy.
Be the artist of your life.
Create it. Live it. Love it.
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
