A First for ME

Well, you have to believe me when I say that is actually me out there you see in the water. What am I doing? Well, my second son bought a KAYAK, with all of the gear. He insisted that I try it out! I could not leave until I did! I have to admit, I was a bit on the hesitant side. I would have rather had on my bathing suit instead of my new clothes I just got! I could see that my son REALLY wanted to see what would happen, so I did it! I am now hooked. I adjusted quickly to the balance issue. I got accustomed to getting wet! I sat in a puddle of water the whole time, put my pants finally dried! Once I got into the groove of kayaking, I did not want to stop! So, I guess I did learn that YOU CAN teach an old dog new tricks! lol Have fun!

I wish wars did not exist…..

Wouldn’t it be peaceful if we all felt the same about war…

No more deaths.

No more killing.

No more cries.

No more suffering.

No more tears.

No more hate.

No more jealousy.

Just no more.

Embrace living.

Quote with a question for you…..

We create our own misery and unhappiness. The purpose of suffering is to make us understand we are the ones who cause it.

Willie Nelson

What do you think about that???

Memories in the sun*

How did I ever miss it?

How could it be ignored?

Loud and inviting at the same time.

Offering many silly or quiet moments.

Take a look.

Embrace the madness.

Sometimes angry and making a point.

Other times timid and wanting your challenges.

The beach is all around you, if you live near by.

Do you take it for granted each day you drive by it?

Do you just assume that it will always be there for you?

Why not take some time to introduce yourself.

You will be amazed at all the smiles.

You will welcome the waves.

You will feel the coldness of the ocean on you.

What fun.

What a miracle.

It all awaits you.

Why do you hesitate?

Motivational quote

Friendship with ones self is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.

Memorial Day… a poem I wrote

This is a poem I wrote last year. I hope you do not mind I posted it again. I want to thank all of you who fight for your country. Without you, there would be no country.

He was a very enthusiastic lad.
Who wanted, so much, to please his dad
He stood for bravery, honor, and pride
But, while doing so..unfortunately died

He left behind the symbol of hope
So while pursuing our dreams, we could cope
He gave us the courage to go on
Even though, from this world he is gone.

Freedom lives because of you
True Americans will NEVER forget all you knew
Fighting for your country was a dedication you accepted with all your heart
I only hope we will be as worthy to do our part.

So, when you look down upon us from above
I hope you can feel all of our love
I hope all Americans feel your pride
I hope they decide to join the right side.

Thank You to ALL who fought for us all.

INSPIRATIONAL thoughts worth repeating*

My friend Mitzi sent this very inspirational work from Lao Tzu. I thought it was well worth passing on to you all. I believe in the words written. So wise.

This SONG gets me moving at the gym..check out this VIDEO from 1979!

I find it hard to believe that this video is from 1979. I mean, check out the clothes. Look at those shades! The guitar playing is awesome. They do not make music like this anymore, in my opinion. I really think that this song ROCKS. The lyrics are strange, but they seem to work. What is your opinion?

Have fun moving and dancing.

D-A-N-C-E………

I noticed something today at the gym. I seem to dance when I exercise. I just seem to go off into the music world that is sounding off in my ears. I have one of those things the kids got me with a lot of my favorite songs, so I just d-a-n-c-e to the music and do the elliptical with no sweat!I have read that it is actually good exercise for the brain to be stimulated this way. It helps me stay young, I hope! I notice I am also one of those people who seem to LISTEN and REACT to the music that is being played whenever I go. I also manage to dance in the car lol I guess I have ALWAYS felt that MUSIC is good for the sole. Being able to EXPRESS YOURSELF in music is an ART. I tend to lean on the PICASSO side, but at least I dance in my life. Do you all FEEL THE MUSIC?
