Squats, lifts and more.

So another goal has surfaced in my thoughts. In fact, it’s a quite common goal. Getting fit. Now you may assume that this would be for cosmetic purposes, etc. But my goal of getting “fit” stems much farther than that. To overcome my muscles. No matter how blunt that may sound it is 100% to…

Returning to College in Scotland!

Oh, my dear friends I have to tell you the most grand thing! I talked to my admissions counselor at the college I will be attending. I have decided to take one class and perhaps an internship over the Spring semester. My trip to Scotland, is still in the works, but I’m shooting for November….

Wander Lust: Scotland!

As I dash of my front porch the train blares its lonesome melody. I’m alone and pedaling hard against the new black top. My bike speeds across… (actually the gears are messed up so it creeps across like a lethargic turtle.) Tires spinning I think of that train. Its contents. Its operators. Its graffiti. Most…

Layers of life fold like an onion. A worker can stop and pick from a field. Layers of life Cause joy and confusion. Lay awake, and count the stars in profusion. Orion a star A hunter, a fighter. Gatherer of glee. A summon. An answer. A Jubilee. The strong thrust of reason. The small pull…

Thankful for L.I.F.E.

I’ve been reflecting on life as it is for me. I was talking with one of my good friends the other day saying how I felt in a rut. But after reflecting on this I’ve accomplished so many of my goals in these past few months! One of my goals was to become a barista…

1 Cup of Coffee

I was so happy yesterday after receiving my job news that I decided to treat myself. Since I was a child I lived creating things. I thank my mom for giving me that artistic inspiration. I love painting so I decided to indulge in a trip to the pottery store. For the sheer sake of…

Stretching of Four Feet Deep- a poem

Roots spring deep from her up tight form. That catches Dark Shadows Stretching along the mossy rift Echoing her former life. Stretching throughout the nearby village. Her arms have held many babies. Sighing her arms have grown weary. The Spring brings children To her side to play. Grow and blossom. Into strong roots that add…

Held Together with Some Cawter Pins

“Held Together with Some Cawter Pins” is a line from I think one of the funniest songs I’ve heard by Susan Warren. I have a first rate experience with cawter pins, any surprise? Its called “City Kids.” While I think this song is beyond funny it uses hyperbole in comparing city kids and country kids….
