Help! I GOT LOST

It happens to all of us sooner or later…more or less frequently. We think we’ll just toss out the map and not even use the GPS directions. “Of course I know the way.” “I can find it in my sleep.” “No, I’m not lost…I’m just not there yet.”

Then it happens! You have to slow down, lower your head, breathe deeply and clear your mind.  Well, isn’t that why I’m lost…because I cleared my mind!

I hear myself whispering to myself:

I could have found the location if they hadn’t built all those houses and stores.

Of course, I know how to get there even if they’ve changed the road.

Yes, it’s a familiar road but when did they build the new highway that goes the wrong direction?

That’s what life is about.

Change. Progress. Update. Different. New.

Why do those things bother me so much?

In this space, I offer you a look at New Journeys on Old Roads.  It’s more to me than that.  It’s the place I throw my thoughts on a blank page.  Come along.  We’ll find it together.  I’m back on track.

“The real voyage of discovery consists in not seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes” Marcel Proust

GOD'S POETIC CHILD!!!

Dear Reader, I am here to give you a little taste of poetry with some water on the side. When you come on my blog that's all that you will taste is Poetry. Not the type of poetry where it doesn't have a meaning. The type of poetry where you will be inspired, uplifted and you will have a different mindset once you leave this site. You might even come to get a taste of this poetry again. Don't be afraid to let your kids read this blog. My poetry is for and to help the youth. Bring them along with you. You both are scrolling down your phone or on the computer anyway. Let's have fun and get a taste of some poetry. I promise this type of poetry tastes delicious. Grab a plate and a fork and I'll feed you. ENJOY!!!!
