1 of 3 – Dragonfly

IMG_7128
Dragonfly
Of graphite
Standing tall
Standing strong

Majestic
As queen
With subjects
Always In mind

Leading
Governing
Yet hiding
Behind your toil

Come out
I say
And release
Yourself

You maybe
Strong
But it’s ok
To be weak

Let down your guard
Peel away the beams
Let in the comfort
Let out the cry

With your wings
Wide spread
Flutter
In the wind

Changing course
Switching mindset
Find the dance
Be the dance

Your strength
You’ll always have
Just don’t let it take
Away your joy

My answers!!

  1. The point is to figure out the point! Why are you here!
  2. I find happiness in the little things that make me smile, perhaps its a memory, perhaps how someone made me feel, perhaps its what I have learnt…
  3. Inspiration comes from hope. Hope is the seed of all beginnings and a nurturer for me.
  4. When lost I return to that which makes me feel found, today this is meditation and yoga, experiences that connect me to me..
  5. I live with my regrets by forgiving myself for lack of understanding and clarity and weaknesses in self esteem and self image.. these are the things that make us susceptible to doing things or not doing them that create regrets in life..
  6. Sadness like any feeling has to be worked through, so I cry,  I feel the sadness and then I look beyond the sadness and realize that I had the opportunity to feel good about that which now makes me sad.
  7. If money was no object I would like to travel, meet more people see more beautiful things in this world and also give freely of the skills of have acquired to help feed the ailing and dying.
  8. What must I experience before my time is up? Pleasures of the senses beyond my current exposure, I hope that travel opportunities will bring this.. And to know that I have understood universal laws and nature to fulfill my time the way my creator envisaged I could.
  9. Today’s projected accomplishment-to¬†better accept the things I cannot change.
  10. Who is the most interesting person I have met? His name is Bill Hubert, he is the founding creator of a brain/body integration program, Bal-A-Vis-X, applicable for use with people of all ages of most all kinds for functioning and disability. I choose him as he is a man who has shown incredible dedication to helping children as he began his quest to overcome the issue of kids falling through the educational cracks and getting lost in the system when they were neither bad enough or good enough to get the right help.
  11. My latest great idea is for a ‘phone check-in’ at my next dinner party this Saturday in an attempt to get everyone to be ‘present’ !! Wish me luck.
