Destination Unknown…..

OK…..another week of digging over at The Sandbox Writing Challenge. We’re asked the following: If you could foresee one accomplishment in your future, what would you like it to be?

My first reaction and answer has to be, my children are my greatest accomplishment..being Blessed with the gift of being their mother is by far the most fulfilling part of my life……and how exciting it is to sit on the sidelines and watch as their lives and the lives of their families grow.

NOW onwards:

If this question was posed to me a week and a half ago, my answer would have been completely different then it is today. For today, if I was gazing into a crystal ball of my making, I’d see myself happily driving my Subaru, not north to the Eastern Shore of my past, but West to visit the Redwood National State Forest…..and visiting as many of the State Parks as I can along the way……….my gypsy soul is Awakening. It has been for some time, though with Jims death it became silent. I am finding as I continue on this journey of mine, as I continue to grow, my gypsy soul is finding its voice once again. It’s not loud. Right now it’s more like a soft, soothing melody, but I’m ready to start singing along.

Another accomplishment is the continued healing that’s occurring between my sister and I. As we continue our reunion it’s with the hopes that our other sister will find her way to open herself up and join us……….this reunion and healing that’s taking place is beyond anything I thought could happen and is so very cool 😎

My Future Is NOW

Poetry, Day Ten: Future
Could it be our last day of Intro to Poetry already?! Let’s keep our spirits up by focusing on whatever it is that’s coming next. Whether it’s about tomorrow, next October, or the year 2345, let today’s poem be inspired by your vision of the future. (Fears, hopes, and plans are equally acceptable, of course. As are robots!) Feeling especially saucy at the end of this journey? Finish the course on a high note by experimenting with the king of poetic forms, the sonnet — a 14-verse poem (rhymed — or not) expressing one unified thought or emotion. Sonnets can get a bit technical (it’s part of the fun!), so you’re invited to learn more about them on our poetry resource page.

Gave a Sonnet a shot……


My thoughts of the future
Are minimal at best…
I don’t spend much time there
Preferring the present tense…
Living life in the Now
Is how I choose to be…
Instead of worrying and stressing
About a time that’s still a mystery…

What the future holds for me
Only time will tell…
In the meantime,
I’m living life hour to hour,
Day by day,
And I’m choosing to Live it well!
