A new year begins

image

 

Another year comes to a close

And what have I learned?

What’s my take away?

 

Be kind

Bring joy to people and

Develop your talents and virtues  

 

There is nothing new in these thoughts

They are age old ideas 

That still make sense

 

They are simple 

They are profound 

They resonate with me

 

May the coming year bring you joy

And you bring joy to others

Be kind

And the world will be a better place

Solitary hours

I sit in solitude
My mind roaming in a world
That is here, but is not
It’s close to us
But it can be far

Silence brings me there
Reflection guides me there
Inspiration is found there
Serenity resides there

It’s like roaming in a rarified atmosphere
Examining reality
Listening to the voices within

It’s like opening a gateway
To a different world
A magical world
A mystical world

And these wonderings are so liberating
So intoxicating
So addictive
That they call me back each day
Lest my day not be spent
Even if it’s momentarily
In that world of mystery
