Pondering…

Pondering…

I spend a lot of time just Pondering… You know… Reflecting

Do you?

You know on things like, Dreams, Family, Love… You know… Things.

In about 3 Weeks it will be a Year since I split up with My Girl Friend of 4 1/2 years…

I hear from her from time to time… She seems to be doing ok.

SHE’S GOT MY DAUGHTER!!

Her name is Kara… We got her shortly after we moved in together back in 2010… She was in a Shelter… I don’t think I’ll ever quite get over losing her… We were close…

I have to admit, I am happy that I am Writing again… I’ve actually been Writing over my Goal of 1,000 Words a day lately… Which may be why I finally decided to take some time off this Weekend… Even though I still fit in some Writing.

It was a Good, but Difficult Weekend… When you’re not keeping busy, sometimes things come up… Things you don’t even necessarily recognize…

I figure I broke up last June, and Started Writing pretty much none stop Last August… I have so much Material that needs to be Edited, I can’t begin to tell you, Lol

But, one Project at a time… And for now, that’s My Novella “I Died Once…” I don’t have an “Actual Editor” yet, but I do have someone doing some what’s called “Line Editing” for me… A term I had never heard of, but they offered to do it for me after Writing a Review of My First Draft… And I basically Jumped at the opportunity to “Clean it Up” a bit.

And I Love how the Cover’s come out… I’m not sure I’m going to mess with it much more, though I do need to figure out what Color The Back of the Book is going to be.

Yeah, I feel pretty good about all of My Writing… Meaning, the fact that I’ve Written So Much… It was My Goal, and I really am in the “Habit” of Writing on a Daily Basis… About anything really… Just to keep Writing… And even when I take a break like I did this weekend… I still ended up hitting my Daily Goal.

As far as the Love Department… Now that’s not really something you can control… Now is it.

I’ve been alone before… It’s really not a Huge Deal… But sometimes, you do just feel Blue…

Family and Friends has actually been a bit frustrating lately… Mostly because I miss my Brother, who I am very close to… As it turns out, I haven’t seen him in a Year and a Half.

Which is definitely surprising.

He texts me maybe a dozen times a day, Lol… But it’s not really enough.

And I miss his Boys/My Nephews… Boy do they look Propped up in this Photo, Lol

Neither of them Wearing a “Yankee” Jersey, which is basically a Crime… Actually, what’s really a Crime, is Wearing that “Red Sox” Jersey, Lol

But Bostons got enough Problems this year, what with “Firing” their Great Coach… Boneheads. One bad Play off Season, and WHAM!, he’s gone.

I asked my Bro if the Boys would like to come down for a week or two, as My Bro lives maybe 8+ hours North of me…

And he said that I would be better off Texting the Oldest… So I did… He says they would like to come down once school is out, so hopefully that will happen… Really miss them.

But enough about me… What do you Ponder about? What’s going good, and what could be better in your world?

Definitely interested to hear about your guys Worlds

Nuff Said

Thanks for Listening/Reading

Dark, Fire… Light

Posted in Poem, Poetry, Scribblings, Writing with tags , , , on November 2, 2011 by darkjade68

Dark, Fire… Light

It is the Preconceived Notion… That once one has finally made it out of the Darkness…

In comes the Light…

This, however, is Not the case…

Indeed, there is Light…

But with this Light, also comes… Fire

And so, though we have traversed, oh so far…

We still have further to go…

It is at this point, the metal of our making, is truly tested…

As through these “Trials of Fire” one does often burn…

And one does often Cry out…

To some greater thing… Or Being… Or… Relief

And in the Quiet spaces that fall between…

You are Often… Alone

This being the case…

What is it that continues to pull us forward, and through…

To this “Ambiguous” Light… This “Inner Peace”…

This Hope of some constant Form of Happiness…

And as we stand on the edge of this “Great Frontier” of Promise, Pleasure and Peace…

To What End
