Notes found on the refrigerator November 2017

16 Dec

Although I enjoy the ease of a sidewalk

I often preferred cutting across the lawn


I can only do one thing at a time

Even if takes me two

Or three tries


I was listening to music on my earphones

And found the sound unclear—

I adjusted the volume


I went to the settings

—no adjustment required.

Suggested, I plug them in

And printed,

Did you find this helpful?

Yes, I knew I should be grocery shopping


A Writer’s Confession:

     As a writer, I may not necessarily write about my own personal experiences.

 Although they influence perception and understanding, they often are not themselves; the words that are written. They are only reflections of me as a writer.

     My characters  are in constant flux… as I… also see and feel my way through each moment—

experiencing what others and what I see, and what  is being  seen —what we universally have in common ambiguity. Often I am just a humble hapless observer making it written into words as only it could be, from the source of a perceptive and creative writer.


How are we able to see the darkness

in the center of the light

and be able to see the light

in the center of darkness?

We see its impermanence.

as in all nature

every day is greater

doing what you need

    as in all nature
    every day is greater

    I cut across the lawn too and prefer to make everyday greater by doing what I need and what engages me.

    I often like to walk across the lawn as well, sometimes I just need the earth beneath my feet and not the concrete.
